10.2 Users must protect their password to prevent third parties (including family members) from gaining access to their password and user account; users may only use the digital services themselves. If unauthorised use of the user account occurs, the user will inform Symba of this in writing without delay.

12 Accessibility of the App

12.1 Symba endeavours to offer the Symba App for retrieval without interruption. However, it cannot be ruled out that the connection to the Symba App will be interrupted, in particular due to technical or other problems that are beyond Symba's control (force majeure, fault of third parties, etc.).

13.2 Symba is only liable for slight negligence in the event of a breach of material contractual obligations, i.e. in the event of a breach of such an obligation which makes the proper fulfilment of the contract possible in the first place and on which the user has relied and was entitled to rely and/or the culpable non-fulfilment of which jeopardises the achievement of the purpose of the contract (cardinal obligation). This liability in the event of a breach of such a material contractual obligation is limited in type and amount to the damage typical for the contract, the occurrence of which Symba and the user had to expect at the time of conclusion of the contract based on the circumstances known to them at that time.

13.3 The above limitations of liability do not apply to damage to health or physical injury for which Symba is responsible. The provisions of the Product Liability Act remain unaffected.

18. final provisions

18.1 These Terms of Use are governed by German law, excluding the conflict of laws rules. In the case of consumers who do not conclude the contract for professional or commercial purposes, this choice of law shall only apply to the extent that the protection granted is not withdrawn by mandatory provisions of the law of the country in which the consumer has his habitual residence.

18.2 Should individual provisions of these Terms of Use be or become invalid or contradict the statutory provisions, this shall not affect the validity of the remaining Terms of Use. The invalid provision shall be replaced by the parties by mutual agreement with a provision that comes as close as possible to the economic purpose of the invalid provision in a legally effective manner.
