§ 7 Notice of risk
Liability for information
1. Trading-Garden does not assume any liability for provided trading suggestions. These do not in any way constitute a call for individual or general replication, even implicitly. Trading suggestions or other information do not constitute an invitation to buy or sell securities or derivative financial products. Any liability for direct or indirect consequences of the published contents is therefore excluded.
2. Trading-Garden obtains information from sources that it considers trustworthy. A guarantee regarding the quality and truthfulness of this information cannot be given.
3. readers as well as customers, who make investment decisions or carry out transactions based on the published contents, act entirely at their own risk and peril. Trading-Garden assumes no liability for the information provided. In particular, Trading-Garden points out the particularly high risks involved in transactions with derivatives and derivative financial instruments. Trading with derivatives is a financial futures transaction. The considerable opportunities are countered by corresponding risks, which can result not only in a total loss of the capital invested, but also in losses exceeding this amount. For this reason, this type of transaction requires in-depth knowledge of these financial products, the securities markets, securities trading techniques and strategies. Automatic trading involves a higher level of risk, as the number and size of orders are determined automatically. The customer must carefully consider the broker and the Internet connection to the broker when selecting the broker.
§ 8 Exclusion of liability
1. the customer’s claims for damages are excluded, unless something else arises from the following reasons. This also applies to the representative and vicarious agents of the provider, if the customer raises claims for damages against them.
2. the compensation of pure financial losses is limited by the general principles of good faith, such as in cases of disproportionality between the amount of the order value and the amount of damage. Any further liability, for whatever legal reasons, is excluded.
3) The provider is not liable for damages that have occurred for the following reasons, but which are not due to the provider’s fault: Natural wear and tear, improperly performed interventions or repair work on the part of the customer or third parties, unsuitable or improper use, incorrect operation, incorrect or negligent handling, improper maintenance, use of unsuitable equipment / replacement materials or similar.
4. excluded from the exclusion of liability are claims for damages of the provider due to injury to life, body, health or essential contractual obligations, which must necessarily be fulfilled to achieve the contractual objective. Likewise this does not apply to claims for damages after grossly negligent or intentional breach of duty by the provider or his legal representative or vicarious agent.
§ 9 Warranty and liability for defects
1 It is pointed out that it is not possible to exclude errors in software under all application conditions according to the state of the art. The software has the agreed quality, is suitable for the contractually presupposed and usual use and has the quality usual for software of this type, but as usual it is not error-free. A functional impairment of the software resulting from hardware defects, environmental conditions, operating errors or similar is not a defect.
2. in the case of breach of fundamental contractual obligations, the provider is liable in the case of simple negligence only for the foreseeable damage typical for the contract, unless the defect was fraudulently concealed, a guarantee was given for the quality of the service or the customer’s claims are based on injury to life, body or health.
3. statements and explanations concerning the services of Trading-Garden are exclusively to be understood as description of the quality and not as guarantee or assurance of a characteristic. Statements regarding the object of performance only constitute guarantees or assurances in the legal sense if they are made in writing and are expressly and literally marked as “guarantee” or “assurance”.
4) A material defect is deemed to exist if the services of Trading-Garden do not have the contractual quality and thus the suitability for the contractual use is cancelled or reduced. An insignificant limitation of the suitability remains out of consideration. The customer must notify Trading-Garden immediately of any defects, malfunctions or damages that occur.
5. Trading-Garden shall remedy defects within a reasonable period of time after receipt of a written and comprehensible description of the defect by the customer.
6. for the products or services provided to the customer, the liability of the provider for defects is limited to subsequent performance – at the choice of the provider by free repair or replacement delivery – and in case of failure of the latter and by the withdrawal from the contract declared by the customer, to repayment of the purchase price. To carry out all seemingly necessary repairs and replacement deliveries, the customer has to give the necessary time and opportunity after consultation; otherwise the provider is released from liability for the consequences. The Provider may refuse to remedy the defect as long as the Customer has not yet paid the remuneration owed in full.
7) The provider expressly accepts no liability for defects in the purchased goods or services in the event of unsuitable or improper use, incorrect assembly or incorrect commissioning by the customer, natural wear and tear, incorrect or negligent handling, improper maintenance and unsuitable operating materials.
8. the customer’s right to terminate the contract due to failure to grant use shall only exist if the defect is not remedied within a reasonable period of time or is to be regarded as having failed.
9. obvious defects must be reported in writing no later than 14 days after completion of the service. In commercial business transactions, it is necessary that the commercial customer has properly fulfilled his inspection and complaint obligations as defined in §§ 377, 378 HGB.
To the extent permitted by law, no warranty is given for software and data. Programming errors (bugs) in the software are excluded from the warranty. We are only liable for further claims and rights in cases of intent and gross negligence. Otherwise liability is excluded. Unless otherwise regulated above, the warranty is based on the statutory provisions.
12) The return and exchange of software is excluded.
