a) TO THE EXTENT NOT PROHIBITED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL OXID ESALES GMBH OR ESALES INTERNATIONAL INC BE LIABLE FOR PERSONAL INJURY, OR ANY INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, INDIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES WHATSOEVER, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, LOSS OF DATA, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION OR ANY OTHER COMMERCIAL DAMAGES OR LOSSES, ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO YOUR USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE OXID ESHOP SOFTWARE, HOWEVER CAUSED, REGARDLESS OF THE THEORY OF LIABILITY (CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE) AND EVEN IF OXID ESALES GMBH AND/OR ESALES INTERNATIONAL INC HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

The foregoing limitations will apply even if the above stated remedy fails of its essential purpose.

b) OXID eSales can only be held liable for any damages arising from the application of OXID eShop software to other software on data media or data processing equipment of the customer, if such damage was caused by a faulty software/data carrier for which delivery intentional or gross negligence of a representative or vicarious agent of OXID eSales GmbH can be claimed and if such damages are of the kind that they could have been foreseen and are typical for such applications. Further, in contracts with corporate bodies of public law, public law foundations and merchants (however, towards merchants also in such cases only if the contract is part of their business operation) liability for gross negligence of an vicarious agent is excluded as long as it is not a negligence of a managerial vicarious agent or as long as no contractual main duties have been infringed.

c) Compulsory legal claims for guarantee for compliance, termination or impairment (however, not for damages) shall not be effected by the above regulation.
