8.2 Targomo’s liability is unlimited for damages caused intentionally or with gross negligence, personal injury and death, for breaches of a guarantee (which must be expressly designated as such in order to be a guarantee in the legal sense) and under the German Product Liability Act.
8.3 Except in the cases of unlimited liability stated above in this Section, Targomo’s liability in the event of a breach of a Cardinal Duty with simple negligence is limited to damages that are typical for cloud services agreements and foreseeable upon conclusion of the Agreement (“Typical and Foreseeable Damages”). A “Cardinal Duty” for the purpose of this Agreement is a duty the compliance with which makes the achievement of the purpose of the Agreement possible in the first place and on the compliance with which the other Party may therefore generally rely.

8.4 The amount of Typical and Foreseeable Damages is limited to the amounts Customer paid to Targomo in one (1) month the immediately preceding the incident creating the specific liability.

The quality of the results are directly dependent on the quality and completeness of the underlying data. Targomo cannot influence the data, their quality, completeness or accuracy and actuality. Furthermore, such data do not always contain real time information. This is why, for instance, temporary interruptions of operations, such as traffic interruptions, cannot be reflected accordingly when using a data source and may not be entirely accurate. Any result, such as a route or connection, shall be regarded as an interpretation of data used to a certain extent and rather a recommendation than being granted as guaranteed. Any routing or information regarding connections shall be assumed without liability. Notwithstanding the aforementioned clauses regarding liability, any liability of targomo due to wrong information shall be excluded. Targomo cannot guarantee the factual correctness of the results of the Targomo Services. The Customer may potentially inform its clients in an appropriate way in this regard, e.g. by placing a disclaimer in connection with a timetable information.
8.8 Furthermore, Targomo does not have any influence on the terms and licenses of data sources used for the Targomo Services, i.e. on the GTFS-sources, that data derived from the OpenStreetMap-project or any other third party data providers. Thus, Targomo does not guarantee unlimted availability of underlying data or unchanged terms. The Customer shall therefore be obliged to familiarize itself with the license terms of data sources used in any idividual case and adhere to them accordingly.
8.9 To the extent that Targomo’s affiliates, employees or directors are held liable in connection with the Agreement, the exclusions and limitations of liability in this Section shall apply to such liability.
