A. Liability. Subject to the provisions contained in the following paragraph and irrespective of legal ground, INFOSECSKILLS is liable only for damages resulting from the intentional misconduct or gross negligence of INFOSECSKILLS, its legal representatives, employees or authorised agents ("Agents"). For damages resulting from the gross negligence of INFOSECSKILLS or its Agents, liability is limited to damages commonly associated with the agreement in question. For damages caused by INFOSECSKILLS or its Agents in the absence of intentional misconduct or gross negligence, INFOSECSKILLS liability is limited to the extent that violations extend to obligations the satisfaction of which is of critical importance to the achievement of the respective agreement's purpose (cardinal obligation). In the event that a cardinal obligation is violated by way of light negligence, liability is limited to damages commonly associated with the agreement in question. The above limitation of liability does not affect liability as prescribed by the German Product Liability Act or for damages from (1) injuries to life, body and health, or (2) the assumption of a guarantee or procurement risk. To the extent that INFOSECSKILLS liability is excluded or limited under the foregoing provisions, such provisions also operate to the benefit of INFOSECSKILLS Agents in cases in which a User sues INFOSECSKILLS Agents directly. B. Decompilation. In case you download certain software provided by INFOSECSKILLS, you are only entitled to decompile the Software under the rules provided in Sec. 69e Copyright Act ("Urhebergesets") and only after INFOSECSKILLS has not provided the necessary information and data for allowing to establish interoperability with third party hard- or software after a written request within an adequate timeframe.
C. Right of Revocation.
If the User is a consumer (Sec. 13 German Civil Code), he or she may revoke registration for the Free or Premium Membership in writing (for example by letter, fax or eMail) without stating a reason within two (2) weeks of registration. Furthermore, the User may cancel registration for the Premium Membership in writing (e.g. by post, fax or eMail) within two (2) weeks without stating a reason, after changing from Free Membership to Premium Membership. The two-week periods begin with the reception of this information in text form. For exercising this right it is sufficient to send the revocation of the contract to the following address:
ATTN: Legal Department
Atlantic House, Imperial Way,
Reading RG2 0TD, UK
In the event of a valid cancellation, both parties shall be obliged to restore any benefits already received in accordance with legal provisions, and issue any gains (e.g. interest). If the User is unable or partially unable to restore the benefits, or only able to restore them in poor condition, to INFOSECSKILLS, then the User is obligated to reimburse INFOSECSKILLS for the corresponding value. Each party must fulfil its obligation for reimbursement within 30 days. The deadline begins for the User with the dispatch of the revocation for INFOSECSKILLS, it begins with the reception of the revocation sent by the User. The right to revoke the contract expires if INFOSECSKILLS has begun providing the service with the User's explicit consent before the end of the deadline for the revocation or if the User has initiated the service himself or herself.
