  8. Limitation of Liability
    1. Voizzr is liable without limitation for (a) injury to life, body or health by Voizzr, Voizzr\’s legal representatives or vicarious agents; (b) damage caused intentionally or by gross negligence by Voizzr, Voizzr\’s legal representatives or vicarious agents; (c) damage due to the absence of a guaranteed quality; and (d) claims from the Product Liability Act (ProdHaftG).
    2. Voizzr is liable for damages from the violation of cardinal obligations by Voizzr, Voizzr\’s legal representatives or vicarious agents. Cardinal obligations are those obligations, the fulfillment of which makes the proper execution of the user contract possible in the first place and on the compliance with which the user regularly relies and may rely. If the violation of cardinal obligations is caused by slight negligence of Voizzr, Voizzr\’s legal representatives or vicarious agents, the liability of Voizzr is limited to the amount that was foreseeable for Voizzr at the time of the provision of the respective service.
    3. Subject to the regulations in clauses 8.1 and 8.2, Voizzr is not liable for damages from the violation of obligations that do not represent cardinal obligations and that were caused by Voizzr, Voizzr\’s legal representatives or vicarious agents through slight negligence.
    4. Voizzr is not liable for losses, damages or disadvantages incurred by the User, which were caused directly or indirectly by the unauthorized use of the services for the processing of Unauthorized Data by the User.
    5. Voizzr is liable for data losses only up to an amount that corresponds to the typical costs for the recovery of the affected data that would have been incurred if the User had made proper and regular data backups.
    6. Subject to the provision in section 8.1, Voizzr\’s liability for damages arising from or in connection with a user agreement, whether in contract, tort or otherwise, is limited to an amount equal to one hundred fifty percent (150%) of the sum of the fees under the affected user agreement.

    1. The user may not assign his rights or obligations from a user contract and these terms of use without the written consent of Voizzr.
    2. The user is only entitled to set off his own claims against claims of Voizzr if his claims (a) have been legally determined; (b) are undisputed; or (c) have been recognized by Voizzr.
  10. Complete Agreement | Severability Clause | Changes | Updates
    1. The user contract including these terms of use represents the complete agreement between the user and Voizzr regarding its subject matter and replaces and excludes all previous written or oral negotiations, regulations, agreements, exercises or arrangements between the parties regarding the subject matter of the contract.
    2. If any provision of the User Agreement, including these Terms of Use, is or becomes invalid or void, in whole or in part, the validity of the remaining provisions shall not be affected thereby. In this case, the invalid or void provision shall be replaced by a provision that comes as close as possible to what the parties would have agreed in a legally permissible manner according to the meaning and purpose of the original provision and the contract of use if they had recognized the invalidity or voidness of the original provision. If the ineffectiveness or invalidity of a provision is based on a measure of performance or time (deadline or date) specified therein, a provision with a legally permissible scope that comes closest to the original scope shall replace it. The foregoing shall also apply to any loophole in the User Agreement including these Terms of Use not intended by the parties. It is the express intention of the parties that this severability clause does not result in a mere reversal of the burden of proof, but that Section 139 of the German Civil Code is waived in its entirety.
    3. Changes or additions to a contract of use must be made in writing (the exchange of simple e-mails is sufficient). The same applies to agreements to deviate from this written form requirement or to waive it completely.
    4. Voizzr can change and/or update these terms of use with effect for the future if this is necessary for technical, economic, or legal reasons. Any amendment to these Terms of Use will be announced to the User in text form (a simple e-mail is sufficient) at least six (6) weeks before its intended effective date. The User may agree or object to the amendment before the date of its intended entry into force. The amendment shall be deemed accepted by the User if the User does not object to the amendment before the day of its intended entry into force. Voizzr will explicitly inform the User of this in the corresponding announcement.
  11. Applicable Law | Consumer Arbitration Board
    1. Any contract of use and all (contractual or non-contractual) disputes or claims arising out of or in connection with the contract of use or its subject matter or its conclusion shall be governed by the mandatory laws of the state in which the user has his habitual residence (i.e. those provisions of the law of that state which cannot be derogated from by agreement). In all other respects, the laws of the Federal Republic of Germany shall apply. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) shall not apply.
    2. The European Commission operates an online arbitration board which can be reached via this link. Voizzr is not obliged to participate in a dispute resolution procedure before this arbitration board or before another consumer arbitration board and is not willing to do so.
