Changes to the rules of participation and termination of the competition
InterSystems BV reserves the right to alter the Conditions of Participation at any time. Furthermore, InterSystems BV reserves the right to terminate or suspend the competition without prior notice for cause at any time. This applies in particular for such causes that would disrupt or prevent the competition from running as planned. If this type of termination is the result of the behavior of a participant, InterSystems BV is entitled to demand compensation from this person for the damages incurred.
Participants cannot use a suspension, cancellation, or termination prior to the closing deadline as the basis for any claims.

In terms of Intersystems BV’s liability for compensation, the following liability exclusions and limitations shall apply irrespective of the other legal eligibility criteria pursuant to this clause: InterSystems BV shall bear unlimited liability if the cause of damage is based on willful intent or gross negligence. Furthermore, InterSystems BV shall be liable in the event of a negligent breach of essential duties, the breaching of which jeopardizes the purpose of the contract, or in the event of a breach of duties, the fulfilment of which renders the proper implementation of the competition possible in the first place, and the compliance with which the contract partners regularly rely. However, InterSystems BV shall only be liable for foreseeable damages that are typical of the contract. InterSystems BV shall not be liable for negligent breaches of duties other than those stated in the previous sentences. The aforementioned liability limitations shall not apply in the event of death, physical injury, and damage to health, for a defect found in the condition of a product following the assumption of quality guarantees, and in the event of fraudulently concealed defects. Liability according to the German Product Liability Act (Produkthaftungsgesetz) shall remain unaffected. So far as InterSystems BV’s liability is excluded or limited, this shall also apply to the personal liability of InterSystems BV’s employees, representatives, and vicarious agents.
InterSystems BV shall not be liable for legal or material defects of the prize.
