10. Limitation of Liability
PLVY shall only be liable for willful intent or gross negligence. This limitation of liability does not apply to claims for damages that result from injury to life, body or health.
PLVY shall not be liable for slight negligence, if no essential contractual obligation is violated, as far as no guarantee has been agreed upon for the quality of the Services, as far as there is no maliciously concealed defect, default or impossibility for which PLVY is responsible. In case of slightly negligent violation of essential contractual duties, the fulfillment of which is required for the due execution of a contract and the observance of which the user relies on and may rely on, the claim for damages shall be limited to the amount of typically predictable damage. The above limitation of liability does not apply to claims for damages that result from injury to life, body or health.
