(1) The Licensor shall provide the Licensee with the Software free of material defects and title defects.

In case of defects, the Licensee shall be entitled to the statutory warranty rights in accordance with the following provisions.

The licensee shall be obliged to accept a new program version even if this entails an acceptable adaptation effort for them.
§ 12 Liability
(1) Apart from the liability for material defects and title defects, the Licensor shall have unlimited liability if the cause of damage is based on intent or gross negligence. The Licensor shall also be liable for the slightly negligent violation of essential obligations (obligations whose violation endangers the achievement of the purpose of the Agreement) as well as for the violation of cardinal obligations (obligations whose fulfillment is essential for the proper execution of the Agreement and on whose compliance the Licensee regularly relies), but for the foreseeable damage typical of the Agreement. The Licensor shall specifically be liable for the loss of data only to the extent of the expense incurred if the User has made regular data backups that are adequate for the application in question, thereby ensuring that lost data can be restored with reasonable effort. The Licensor shall not be liable for the slightly negligent breach of other obligations than the aforementioned obligations. The Licensor shall only be liable for compensation for indirect damages, especially for loss of profit, in the event of intent or gross negligence on the part of the licensor.
(2) The above limitations of liability shall not apply in the event of injury to life, limb, or health, defects after the provision of a guarantee for the quality of a product, and in the event of fraudulently concealed defects. The liability under the Product Liability Act shall remain unaffected.

The above shortening of the limitation period shall not apply in the event of intent or gross negligence, in cases of fraudulent concealment of a defect or in the event of the assumption of a guarantee for the quality of the software at the time of the transfer of risk within the meaning of § 444 BGB, nor in the event of injury to life, limb or health.
(2) The statutory special regulations for claims for restitution in rem by third parties in the event of fraudulent intent on the part of the Licensor remain unaffected.
