2. Availability of the platform
The horsecare24.com portal has an availability of 97%, based on one year. Availability refers to the ratio of actual time to target time. The actual time is the period in which the system is actually available at the router output of the Horsecare24 data centre. Not included in the target time are the times for the maintenance of the system, interruptions of the offline backups as well as interruptions due to force majeure or other reasons which did not occur intentionally or due to gross negligence on the part of Horsecare24.

• that it is technically impossible to provide the Platform free of errors of any kind and that RB HORSES GmbH therefore accepts no responsibility for them;
• that errors can lead to the temporary shutdown of the platform

Cardinal obligations are obligations the fulfilment of which is essential for the proper performance of the contract and on the fulfilment of which the contractual partner may regularly rely.
6.7 Claims for damages shall be limited to the foreseeable damage typical for the contract, except in the cases mentioned in paragraph 5. In the event of default, they shall amount to a maximum of 5% of the order value.
