Limitation of Liability

With the exception of damage claims due to errors in guaranteed characteristics, in accordance with product liability law, all claims to damages (e.g. due to faults in contract negotiation, positive contract violation, unlawful actions) against us are excluded unless they are based on intent or gross negligence of our legal representatives or executives, or intent or gross negligence of our fulfilment or operational help. With regard to delay and impossibility, we also bear liability toward non-traders in the event of negligence, but only in the amount of additional expenses for covering purchases or substitute performance. In the event of violation of significant contractual obligations (‘cardinal obligations’) we are liable for simple negligence of our legal representatives and executives, but only limited to typical and foreseeable damages.

If Spedition Lang GmbH is liable as a co-debtor along with others, they are constantly only subsidiary in the last position.

Spedition Lang GmbH is only liable for the loss of data if they have backed up the data in appropriate intervals, at least once per day in a machine-readable form.

The existing liability limitations also apply for the benefit of our legal representatives, executives and fulfilment and vicarious agents.

Austrian law applies; the Vienna Commercial Court is appointed for all legal disputes which arise due to or in connection with this exclusion of liability and/or with any content of this website, if no obligatory legislation opposes it.
