13.2. Consequences of the revocation

If you revoke this contract, we shall reimburse you for all payments we have received from you, including delivery costs (with the exception of additional costs resulting from the fact that you have chosen a type of delivery other than the most favorable standard delivery offered by us), without undue delay and no later than within fourteen days from the day on which we received the notification of your revocation of this contract.

Essential contractual obligation in this sense is an obligation, the fulfillment of which enables the proper execution of the contract in the first place, the violation of which endangers the achievement of the purpose of the contract and on whose compliance you may regularly rely. For all other damages, the liability of STAIDIUM is excluded.

14.2. Liability under the Product Liability Act remains unaffected.

14.3. The above limitations of liability also apply to companies affiliated with STAIDIUM as well as to personal liability of employees, representatives, shareholders and vicarious agents of STAIDIUM and/or companies affiliated with STAIDIUM, if you assert claims directly against them.

15. Force majeure

Neither STAIDIUM nor third party rights holders shall be liable for the delayed provision, the only partial provision or the non-provision of the services, insofar as such delay or non-provision is beyond STAIDIUM's control (e.g. match cancellations), is due to force majeure (e.g. labor disputes, riots, war or terrorist conflicts or epidemics / pandemics) or the third party rights holder, including but not limited to the failure of electronic or mechanical equipment or communication channels, computer viruses, extreme weather conditions, natural phenomena, government orders, pandemics, war or riots.

16. Changes to these terms of use

STAIDIUM will change these General Terms of Use from time to time.

You will be informed about this possible consequence of an objection in the context of the change notice.

17.2. By concluding the subscription, you give STAIDIUM permission to collect information about the frequency of accessed content anonymously in order to measure the acceptance of our streaming offer.

17.3. STAIDIUM is entitled to transfer all rights and obligations arising from these Terms of Use and the contractual relationship with you as a whole to a company affiliated with STAIDIUM or another third party. In this case, STAIDIUM will inform you at least four weeks in advance so that you can terminate any ongoing or already extended contracts (subscriptions) before the transfer is carried out within the agreed minimum term.

17.4. Should individual provisions of this agreement be invalid or unenforceable or become so at a later date, this shall not affect the validity of the remaining agreement. In this case, the contracting parties undertake already now to agree on a replacement of the provision which comes closest to the economic purpose of the invalid or unenforceable provision. The same applies to a gap in the contract.

17.5. The European Commission provides a platform for online dispute resolution at the Internet address http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr. However, STAIDIUM is neither obliged nor willing to participate in dispute resolution proceedings before a consumer arbitration board.
