9. Liability

KwaRC makes every effort to carry out assignments and / or training courses and courses to the best of its knowledge and ability. However, the final result depends as much on factors that are outside the influence of KwaRC as it is a consequence of the activities of KwaRC. KwaRC can therefore not give any guarantees with regard to the expected results of the activities it performs. KwaRC therefore only has a best efforts obligation with regard to the assignment given.

Barring intent or gross negligence on the part of KwaRC, any liability of KwaRC for direct and indirect damage, including but not limited to consequential damage, lost profit and damage due to business interruption, is expressly excluded.

KwaRC can never be held liable for damage resulting from the actions and / or negligence of third parties and / or through the actions of persons engaged by KwaRC.
