9. GENERAL TERMS

1. Severability

13. PROVISIONS APPLICABLE TO USERS REGISTERING FROM FRANCE

The following provisions apply if your country of registration is France, you are using BECKMANN BIO from France, and you are using the French version of BECKMANN BIO:

14. PROVISIONS APPLICABLE TO USERS REGISTERING FROM GERMANY

The following provisions apply and prevail over the above stated clauses if your country of registration is Germany, you are using BECKMANN BIO from Germany and you are using the German version of BECKMANN BIO:

1. Liability

Subject to the provisions contained in the following paragraph and irrespective of legal ground, BECKMANN BIO is liable only for damages resulting from the intentional misconduct or gross negligence of BECKMANN BIO, its legal representatives, employees or authorized agents (“Agents”).

For damages resulting from the gross negligence of BECKMANN BIO or its Agents, liability is limited to damages commonly associated with the agreement in question. For damages caused by BECKMANN BIO or its Agents in the absence of intentional misconduct or gross negligence, BECKMANN BIO’s liability is limited to the extent that violations extend to obligations the satisfaction of which is of critical importance to the achievement of the respective agreement’s purpose (cardinal obligation). In the event that a cardinal obligation is violated by way of light negligence, liability is limited to damages commonly associated with the agreement in question. The above limitation of liability does not affect liability as prescribed by the German Product Liability Act or for damages from (1) injuries to life, body and health, or (2) the assumption of a guarantee or procurement risk. To the extent that BECKMANN BIO’s liability is excluded or limited under the foregoing provisions, such provisions also operate to the benefit of BECKMANN BIO Agents in cases in which a User sues BECKMANN BIO Agents directly.

2. Decompilation

In case you download certain software provided by BECKMANN BIO, you are only entitled to decompile the Software under the rules provided in Sec. 69e Copyright Act ("Urhebergesetz") and only after BECKMANN BIO has not provided the necessary information and data for allowing to establish interoperability with third party hard- or software after a written request within an adequate timeframe.

3. Right of Revocation

If the User is a consumer (Sec. 13 German Civil Code), he or she may revoke registration for the Free or Premium Membership in writing (for example by letter, fax or eMail) without stating a reason within two (2) weeks of registration. Furthermore, the User may cancel registration for the Premium Membership in writing (e.g. by post, fax or eMail) within two (2) weeks without stating a reason, after changing from Free Membership to Premium Membership. The two-week periods begin with the reception of this information in text form. For exercising this right it is sufficient to send the revocation of the contract to the following address:

BECKMANN BIO s.p.r.l.
Managing director
Avenue Minerve 11
1410 Waterloo
Belgium
Fax: +32-2-657.30.46
Email: info@Beckmann-bio.com

In the event of a valid cancellation, both parties shall be obliged to restore any benefits already received in accordance with legal provisions, and issue any gains (e.g. interest). If the User is unable or partially unable to restore the benefits, or only able to restore them in poor condition, to BECKMANN BIO, then the User is obligated to reimburse BECKMANN BIO for the corresponding value. Each party must fulfill its obligation for reimbursement within 30 days. The deadline begins for the User with the dispatch of the revocation; for BECKMANN BIO, it begins with the reception of the revocation sent by the User. The right to revoke the contract expires if BECKMANN BIO has begun providing the service with the User’s explicit consent before the end of the deadline for the revocation or if the User has initiated the service himself or herself.

15. PROVISIONS APPLICABLE TO USERS REGISTERING FROM THE UNITED KINGDOM

The following provisions apply and in the event of a conflict prevail over the above stated clauses if you are using the Services as a consumer resident in the United Kingdom:

1. Disclaimer
