(1) Where the Vendor is to make good a loss due to statutory provisions in accordance with these Terms and Conditions caused by slight negligence, the Vendor’s liability is limited: Liability only exists in the event of a breach of substantial contractual obligations and is limited to typical losses foreseeable on entering into the contract. This restriction does not apply to injury to life or limb. The same applies to losses caused by a defect.

§9 Free instalment agreement
Where, due to the agreement with the Vendor, the consumer as a purchaser is allowed to pay the purchase price in instalments without consideration to be provided by the consumer to guarantee payment in instalments (free instalment agreement), the following applies: Where the Purchaser is in arrears by more than 10 working days in part or in whole with an instalment or at least 10% of the instalment, the Vendor is entitled to terminate the instalment agreement without stating reasons. In this event, payment of the outstanding amount becomes due.
Where the customer is a registered trader, legal entity under public law or a special fund under public law, jurisdiction for both parties for all disputes arising from the contractual relationship lies with the courts of Karlsruhe.
§11 International jurisdiction
