    2. Without limitation to Section 7.1 Konspiracy shall be only fully liable in other cases for intentional or grossly negligent conduct and fraud.
    3. Without limitation to Section 7.1 in cases of slight negligence, Konspiracy will only be liable if an obligation has been breached, the fulfilment of which facilitates the proper performance of the contract in the first place, the violation of which compromises the achievement of the contract’s purpose, and the compliance with which the customer frequently relies on. In this instance, claims for compensation will be limited to the usual, foreseeable damages.
    4. This limitation of liability shall also apply for Konspiracy’s directors, officers and employees weather directly employed or as contractors.
