5. Liability

  1. Subject to the provision in point b) below, the liability of NEB and its legal representatives, vicarious agents and employees (collectively “NEB-Personnel”) in connection with the Content for damages due to simple negligence, regardless of the legal grounds, is limited as follows:
    • NEB-Personnel’s liability in the event of a breach of material contractual obligations (i.e., obligations that make proper use possible in the first place and compliance with which may be regularly relied upon) shall be limited to the amount of damage typically foreseeable at the time the contract was concluded;
    • NEB-Personnel shall not be liable for simple negligence in other respects.
  2. The aforementioned limitations of liability shall not apply in cases of mandatory statutory liability (e.g., under the German Product Liability Act) or in cases of culpably caused injury to life, limb or health. Furthermore, they shall not apply if and insofar as NEB has assumed a guarantee.
  3. You are obliged to take all measures to minimise any damage as far as possible.

6. Applicable law

The law of the Federal Republic of Germany shall apply to the exclusion of the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. Mandatory law, in particular mandatory consumer protection law, remains unaffected by this.
