EUROSHNET shall be liable for damages only if they or any of their agents violate an essential contractual obligation (cardinal obligation) in a way that compromises the intent of the contract or causes damage through gross negligence or willful misconduct. If the culpable breach of an essential contractual obligation is not of gross negligence or willful misconduct, then EUROSHNET’s liability shall be limited to typical and foreseeable damages, limited to the ticket price. Essential contractual obligations shall be duties that must be fulfilled in order to enter into a contractual relationship. Further on, EUROSHNET is excluded from the liability of consequential or incidental damages. 

Place of fulfilment and sole court of jurisdiction for all questions arising from this contract is Bonn, Germany.

German law and jurisdiction shall apply.
