12.2 De retsmidler, der stilles til rådighed for kunden i denne sektion 12, er de eneste og eksklusive retsmidler, der er tilgængelige for kunden, hvis WhistleSystem overtræder tredjeparts immaterielle rettigheder.

13. Begrænsninger til leverandørens ansvar

13.1 Uanset bestemmelserne i punkt 11.2 og 12.1 er leverandørens forpligtelse til at kompensere ved skader og/eller forholdsmæssig reduktion af det årlige abonnementsgebyr eller andre gebyrer underlagt følgende begrænsninger:

13.1.1 Leverandøren er på intet tidspunkt ansvarlig for og bærer på intet tidspunkt nogen del af risikoen for kvaliteten af brugen eller resultater , der genereres ved hjælp af WhistleSystem baseret på rapporter, der sendes til WhistleSystem af kunden og kundens brugere.

13.1.2 Leverandøren er ikke på noget tidspunkt forpligtet til at kompensere kunden for indirekte tab eller følgetab, herunder, men ikke begrænset til, tab af forventet indtjening, tab af data, udgifter til afhjælpning af beskadigelse eller fejl i data eller ethvert tab til at dække foretagne køb.

13.1.3 Den maksimale kompensation, som leverandøren kan pålægges at betale til kunden i henhold til aftalen, kan ikke overstige fem gange (5x) det årlige abonnementsgebyr, der betales af kunden i licensperioden, hvor skaden har fundet sted.

13.2 Enhver tilsidesættelse af de aftalte ansvarsbegrænsninger er underlagt de generelle regler i dansk ret.

13.3 Begrænsningerne i ansvaret heri gælder ikke i tilfælde af forsætlighed eller grov uagtsomhed.

14. Andre bestemmelser

14.1 Sted og lovvalg

14.1.1 Aftalen er underlagt dansk lovgivning med undtagelse af dens lovbestemmelser.

14.1.2 I det omfang det er muligt, skal parterne forsøge at mindske enhver tvist med hensyn til anvendelsen eller fortolkningen af aftalen i mindelighed gennem forhandlinger. Tvister, der ikke kan løses i mindelighed af parterne, skal indbringes for de almindelige domstole i Danmark med Københavns Byret som aftalt mødested med adgang til henvisning og appel i henhold til lov om retsvæsenet.

14.2 Aftalens enhed og helhed

14.2.1 De generelle licensvilkår, servicelicensaftalen, databehandleraftalen og det skriftlige tilbud udgør den fuldstændige aftale mellem parterne og erstatter alle tidligere mundtlige og skriftlige aftaler mellem parterne. I tilfælde af uoverensstemmelse mellem disse generelle licensvilkår og vilkårene i servicelicensaftalen har vilkårene i servicelicensaftalen forrang over de generelle licensvilkår. Det er et element i en gyldig kontrakt, at servicelicensaftalen, der er udarbejdet til aftalen, er underskrevet af begge parter.

14.3 Overdragelse og underleverandører

14.3.1 I betragtning af den erhvervede tjenestes art, beskrevet i afsnit 7.1, er kunden ikke berettiget til at overdrage nogen rettigheder og forpligtelser i henhold til aftalen til nogen tredjepart uden forudgående skriftligt samtykke fra leverandøren.

14.3.2 Leverandøren har ret til at overdrage rettigheder og forpligtelser i henhold til aftalen til enhver virksomhed eller juridisk enhed, der er tilknyttet leverandøren.

14.3.3 Yderligere er leverandøren berettiget til at overdrage rettigheder og forpligtelser i henhold til aftalen som en del af en overførsel af leverandørens forretningsaktiviteter, helt eller delvist, og accepterer at informere kunden, hvis denne overførsel foretages til et firma eller anden juridisk enhed, som ikke er tilknyttet leverandøren.
