7. LIMITED LIABILITY
7.1. Unicontrol is not liable for any indirect losses, including any loss of profit, loss of goodwill, any failure to obtain or reach economic benefits and objectives, any loss of production, loss or distortion of data, any loss suffered because Unicontrol’s deliveries cannot be used as erroneously assumed by the Customer, any loss relating to unauthorised persons’ access to data and systems attributable solely to the Customer, or any loss suffered due to the lapse or breach of a third party agreement.

Unicontrol exercises no control whatsoever of the Customer’s use of the Deliverables.
