We expressly disclaim all warranties, including but not limited to warranties of fitness for a particular purpose and warranties of merchantability. In no event will we, our affiliates or other suppliers be liable for direct, special, incidental, or consequential damages (including, without limitation, damages for loss of business profits, business interruption, loss of business information or other pecuniary loss) arising directly or indirectly from the use of (or failure to use) or reliance on the Site Services, even if we have been advised of the possibility that such damages may arise. We do not guarantee the accuracy, content, or timeliness of the Site Services or that they or related systems are free from viruses or other contaminating or destructive properties.

In no event will any liability of us, our affiliates, agents and licensors to you (and/or any third party) arising out of any kind of legal claim (whether in contract, tort, or otherwise) in any way connected with the Site Services or breach of these Terms by WNM exceed the amount, if any, paid by you to us in respect of the particular Site Service to which the claim relates.

Upon our request, you agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless WNM from any claims and expenses, including reasonable legal fees, related to any breach of these Terms by you or your use of any Site Services.

When Terms are changed, we will notify you by email or by publishing details of those changes by including them in these Terms. If you use the Site after we have published or notified you of the changes, you are agreeing now to be bound by those changes.

Non-Waiver. No delay or omission on the part of either party in requiring performance by the other party of its obligations will operate as a waiver of any right. Notices to us must be given in writing by letter and sent to our offices.

Severability/Survival/Statute of Limitations. If any provision of these Terms is invalid or unenforceable, such will not render all the Terms unenforceable or invalid but rather the Terms will be read and construed as if the invalid or unenforceable provision(s) are not contained therein. Any cause of action of yours with respect to these Terms must be filed in a court of competent jurisdiction in Berlin, Germany and, within one year after the cause of action has arisen, or such cause will be barred, invalid, and void.

Whole Agreement. Save as expressly referred to herein, any representation, warranty, term or condition not expressly set out in these Terms shall not apply.

9. Governing Law and Jurisdiction

These Terms shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with German law. The parties irrevocably agree that the courts of Germany shall (subject to the paragraph below) have exclusive jurisdiction to settle any dispute which may arise out of, under, or in connection with these Terms or the legal relationship established by them, and for those purposes irrevocably submit all disputes to the jurisdiction of the German courts.

For the exclusive benefit of WNM, we shall retain the right to bring proceedings as to the substance of the matter in the courts of the country of your residence or, where these Terms are entered into in the course of your trade or profession, the country of your principal place of business.
