Through maintenance work, further development or malfunctions the possibilities of use can be limited or temporarily interrupted. This can also lead to data loss under certain circumstances.
11.2 Scheduled maintenance work takes place regularly between 11 pm and 6 am (Central European time) and is announced to the user in the account at least 4 hours in advance. Scheduled maintenance work will affect the availability of the services for a maximum of 10 hours in a calendar month.

However, in case of debtor's delay of Mooncamp or the impossibility of performance of services for which Mooncamp is responsible as well as in case of violation of essential contractual obligations (so-called cardinal obligations) Mooncamp is liable for each own culpable conduct or that of its legal representatives, executives, employees or other vicarious agents. In this context, essential contractual obligations are abstractly defined as those obligations whose fulfillment is essential for the proper execution of the contract and on whose compliance the user/employee may regularly rely.

The user has to inform Mooncamp immediately of any impairments of the rights which are subject matter of the agreement.
