In particular, the Customer and the User undertake to protect the respective Access Data from unauthorised access and use by a third party. The Customer is responsible towards RWEST for any damage culpably caused by the unauthorised and incorrect use of Access Data.

RWEST reserves the right to remove, terminate, expand or restrict individual contents, information, data, functions etc. of VIEW at any time. RWEST is entitled to make updates of the software at its discretion. The Customer is not entitled to claim the implementation of a change or an update. There is no right to claim a timely provision of data or download of contents.
RWEST will always endeavour to provide a technically proper access to VIEW.
Due to the nature of the Internet, however, a trouble-free operation cannot be guaranteed at any time. Access to VIEW may also be occasionally interrupted or restricted e.g. in order to enable repairs, maintenance or the introduction of new facilities or services. RWEST will attempt to limit the frequency and duration of any such temporary interruption or limitation. The Customer is obliged to inform RWEST immediately of any malfunctions.

There shall be no rights or obligations towards RWEST resulting from such legal transactions. RWEST assumes no liability in this respect.
VIEW may contain links to other (external) websites. VIEW only provides access, but does not consider their contents its own. Their contents shall be the sole responsibility of the respective operator. RWEST assumes no liability in this regard.
Apart from that, RWEST shall be liable for any culpably caused violation of essential contractual obligations according to the legal regulations, in case of minor negligence, however, only up to the amount of the foreseeable, contract-typical damage.

Liability for damages to persons, assurances, acceptance of guarantees as well as according to mandatory provisions shall remain unaffected by the above-mentioned regulations.
To the extent, RWEST's liability is restricted or excluded due to the aforementioned paragraph, this shall also apply with regard to the personal liability of the respective RWEST employee, staff member and bodies as well as RWEST's vicarious and disposing agents, including their employees, staff members and bodies.
