Unless otherwise agreed to in writing, Customer shall have the right to use the Supplies, including software, in accordance with their indented purpose specified in the Agreement, in the country of Customer's registration and for the term of validity of the Agreement only. Any back-up copy, intervention, incl. modification, alteration or addition, to the software supplied to Customer, without Casino Technology's prior written consent, shall constitute grounds for termination of the non-exclusive license granted to Customer.
2. For the whole period of validity of the Agreement and after its expiration or termination Casino Technology's intellectual property shall remain the sole and exclusive property of Casino Technology. Any transfer of a license granted under the Agreement without the prior written consent of Casino Technology shall void such license and shall result in Customer's obligation to pay a penalty equal to ten times the applicable or applied license fees in addition to a claim for any and all other damages suffered by Casino Technology for such Supply or the relevant component thereof.
3. Customer shall be obliged to safeguard Casino Technology's intellectual property rights (hereinafter referred to as "IPR"), as well as any IPR licensed to Casino Technology by third parties, including without limitation copyrights, trademark, design or patent rights and, in the event of an infringement of such rights, to indemnify Casino Technology for any damage incurred thereby.

a) Casino Technology shall choose whether to acquire, at its own expense, the right to use the IPR with respect to the Supplies concerned or whether to modify the Supplies in such a way that they no longer infringe the IPR, or replace them. If this would be impossible for Casino Technology under reasonable conditions, Casino Technology and Customer may rescind the Agreement or reduce the remuneration pursuant to the applicable statutory provisions;
b) Casino Technology's liability for damages resulting from IPR infringement shall be settled in accordance with the provisions of Chapters XI and XII;
c) The above obligations of Casino Technology shall apply only if the Customer (i) immediately notifies Casino Technology of any such claim asserted by the third party in writing, (ii) does not concede the existence of an infringement and (iii) leaves any protective measures and settlement negotiations to Casino Technology's discretion. If the Customer ceases to use the Supplies in order to reduce the damage or for other good reason, it shall be obliged to point out to the third party that no acknowledgement of the alleged infringement may be inferred from the fact that the use has been discontinued.
5. Claims of the Customer shall be excluded if Customer is responsible for the infringement of an IPR.
6. Claims of the Customer are also excluded if the infringement of the IPR is caused by specifications made by the Customer, by a type of use not foreseeable by Casino Technology or by the Supplies being modified by the Customer or being used together with products not provided by Casino Technology.
7. In addition, with respect to claims by the Customer pursuant to Section 4, Subsection a) above, Sections 4 and 5 of Chapter VIII shall apply mutatis mutandis in the event of an infringement of an IPR.
8. Where other defects in title occur, Chapter VIII of these Terms shall apply mutatis mutandis.

Customer's claim for damages shall, however, be limited to an amount of 1% (one percent) of the value of that part of the Supplies which, owing to the impossibility, cannot be put to the intended use. This limitation shall not apply in the case of mandatory liability based on intent, gross negligence or loss of life, bodily injury or damage to health; this does not imply a change in the burden of proof to the detriment of the Customer.
2. Where unforeseeable events within the meaning of Chapter III Section 4 substantially change the economic importance or the contents of the Supplies or considerably affect Casino Technology's business, the Agreement shall be adapted taking into account the principles of reasonableness and good faith. To the extent this is not justifiable for economic reasons, Casino Technology shall have the right to rescind the Agreement.

3. To the extent Customer has a claim for damages, Customer shall not have the right to claim an amount which exceeds the amounts that will be reimbursed to Casino Technology by third parties.
4. To the extent Customer has a claim for damages, such claim shall be time-barred upon expiration of the period pursuant to Chapter VIII, Section 2. The same shall apply to Customer's claims in connection with actions undertaken to avoid any damage.
XII. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
1. By signing the Agreement Customer agrees that the price for the Goods would not adequately compensate Casino Technology for unilaterally assuming all risks associated with its performance, breach or non-performance, and that to avoid having to increase its price to adequately protect against such unlimited risk, the Customer and Casino Technology agree to be bound by this limitation on Casino Technology's liability.

4. In the event that a warranty or remedy is deemed to have failed its essential purpose, the parties expressly provide that such failure shall not affect the validity of this limitation of liability, each provision having been separately bargained for and agreed.
5. The Customer hereby releases, indemnifies and holds harmless Casino Technology from and against any claims relating to the Goods brought by an end-user directly against Casino Technology. The liability of Casino Technology regarding any such claim shall, with regard to the relationship as between the Customer and Casino Technology, be decided upon the terms and conditions of these Terms and the Agreement.
