Furthermore, these limitations of liability shall not apply to damages resulting from injury to life, body or health if unu is responsible for the breach of duty. Furthermore, the limitation shall not apply to damages based on the absence of a warranted characteristic, for which liability is provided for under the Product Liability Act or for which the warranty was assumed pursuant to Section 12.

15.3. If you are an entrepreneur (Sec. 2.2.), you must immediately notify unu of any seizure by third parties of goods owned or co-owned by unu. If you are an entrepreneur, you shall bear the costs for an extrajudicial release arising from such interventions.
