Apart from this, GLS is only liable according to the product liability law on grounds of loss of life, injury to the body or the health, on grounds of culpable infringement of essential contractual duties or to the extent that GLS has assumed a guarantee for the form of the performances. The entitlement to compensation for damage resulting from the infringement of essential contractual duties is, however, limited to the contract-typical, foreseeable damage. This applies towards a participant who is a businessman also in cases of gross negligence. The liability for damages to legally-protected interests of the customer resulting from the performances of GLS, e.g. damage to other things, is however, excluded. The regulations of the sentences 3 and 4 of this paragraph do not apply, insofar as there was deliberate intent or gross negligence or there was a liability for loss of life, injury to the body or the health or insofar as GLS has assumed a guarantee for the form of the performances.

5.2 The regulation of the previous paragraph applies to compensation in addition to performance and compensation instead of performance, no matter for what legal reason, in particular due to faults, the infringement of duties arising from the contractual obligations or from an illegal action. It also applies to the claim to a replacement of expenditure made in vain. The liability for delay, however, is regulated by paragraph 3, the liability for impossibility according to paragraph 4.

5.3 GLS is liable for the delay of performance in cases of deliberate intent or gross negligence, including the deliberate intent or gross negligence of the representatives or subcontractors of GLS, according to the legal regulations. In other cases of delay of performance the extent of liability of GLS for compensation for damages besides and instead of the performance is limited to 50% of the value of the part of the performance affected by the delay. Further claims of the customer are excluded – also following the expiry of a deadline set for performance by GLS. The afore-mentioned limitation, however, does not apply to liability due to the loss of life, injury the body or the health.

5.4 Insofar as the performance is impossible, the participant is entitled to demand compensation according to the legal regulations. However, the claim of the participant to compensation besides or instead of the performance and to a refunding of expenditure made in vain, is limited to 10% of the value of the part of the performance which cannot be rendered due to the impossibility. Further claims of the participant on grounds of impossibility of the performance are excluded. This restriction does not apply, insofar as the liability is in cases of deliberate intent, of gross negligence or because of loss of life, injury to the body or the health. The right of the participant to withdraw from the contract remains unaffected.
