We emphasize that despite all due diligence, it cannot be ruled out that the font software can be manufactured in infringement of copyright, industrial design rights, graphic character or other intellectual property rights. We explicitly do not guarantee that the font software is free from infringement of the aforementioned laws. Rights to damages relating to these are therefore not applicable.
10.3 The abovementioned liability exclusions and limitations are also applicable extend to our employees, representatives and subcontractors. These do not apply, as long as damages are caused by intentional or negligent behavior, or personal injury occurs, or moral violations are intentionally or negligently carried out.
