Leatherman’s Product Warranty; Exclusion of Other Warranties
Warranty information regarding products may be found at https://www.leatherman.com/en_DE/CustomerService-Warranty.html.
Leatherman’s liability for defective delivery in the form of product defects is excluded to the extent that such defects and any related damages cannot be shown to arise from defective materials, design, or manufacturing. In particular, all warranties and liability are excluded for the consequences of defective or improper use of the products, use of the products inconsistent with any operations manual, work or repairs on Leatherman products by third parties, or alterations or modifications to Leatherman products, to the extent that the product defect arises from any of the foregoing. This exclusion does not apply in the case of fraudulent, intentional, or grossly negligent conduct by Leatherman, in case of injury to the body, life, or health, in cases where a guarantee of freedom from defects or procurement risk under § 276 German Civil Code has been assumed, or where a statutory provision mandates liability.
In other cases, warranty obligations are governed by applicable statutory provisions.
Your Statutory Right to Withdrawal
Limitation of Liability for Leatherman Products
In regards to any product you purchase from the Website, Leatherman’s liability is unlimited to the extent it arises from a fraudulent, intentional, or grossly negligent breach of duty by Leatherman or its lawful representatives or agents, in the event of an assumption of guarantee for the quality of the product, in the event of an assumption of procurement risk under § 276 German Civil Code, and for injury to the body, life, or health. Liability under the German Product Liability Law (Produkthaftungsgesetz) and other cases of mandatory statutory liability remain unaffected.
Further, Leatherman is liable for the slightly negligent breach of material contractual obligations. Material contractual obligations are those whose breach impairs the achievement of the purpose of the contract, whose fulfillment enables the proper performance of the contract, and on whose compliance you as the customer regularly rely. However, in such a case Leatherman is liable only for foreseeable damages typical for the type of Contract involved. Leatherman is not liable for the slightly negligent breach of any obligation other than those specified in the foregoing sentences.
The preceding terms do not result in a reversal of the burden of proof.
