We do not warrant that your use of the Website, Content or Services will be uninterrupted or error-free.
Foundation shall be liable only for direct proprietary damages caused to the Client (incl. Participant) by the Foundation intentionally or due to gross negligence or if the exclusion of liability is not possible by applicable law. In this case, the consumer may demand compensation for the proprietary and non-proprietary damage caused to him by the Foundation.
Foundation is not liable for other damages sustained by Client, participant or any third party and is not required to compensate Client, participant or any third party inter alia for any lost or anticipated profit or revenue, expenditure related to interrupted business activities and/or decreased profit, decreased company’s share or value or lost or corrupted data, or damage to reputation or goodwill or any consequential, special, incidental, punitive or other indirect damages or losses arising from, relation to or connected with your use of (or inability to use) the Website, any Content or Service offered by us regardless of the cause of action on which the claim is based (including negligence, tort, contract, strict liability, product defect or misrepresentation), even if advised of the possibility of such damages.
The forgoing limitations of liability will apply regardless of the cause of action under which such damages are sought, whether for breach of contract, negligence, strict liability, or other tort, whether the parties were or should have been aware or advised of the possibility of such damage, and regardless of whether any remedy fails of its essential purpose.
