7.2.2 The liability of Laniatus in relation to data and/or programs lost due to Laniatus ordinary negligence shall be limited to the typical recovery costs that would have been sustained by the user had he implemented regular data backup measures which are reasonable in view of all the circumstances.

7.4 The aforementioned disclaimers likewise apply in favour of Laniatus’s vicarious agents.
7.5 Laniatus is not liable for any costs sustained by the user availing of services not explicitly offered by Laniatus itself. This applies particularly to costs incurred due to the data transfer to and from the user’s terminal device as well as for any costs sustained by the user in using payment systems.
7.6 Any strict liability for defects in Laniatus services that exist at the beginning of the provision of the service is excluded, i.e. Laniatus is only liable to the extent that Laniatus or its agents are liable.
