If the operator is liable to one or more members for property damage or personal injury and is not based on an intentional or unlawful act, the liability is limited to CHF 10,000.00 per member. If the claim for damages arises from a uniform act or a uniform event causing damage against several members and this is not based on an intentional tortious act, the liability for damages shall be limited to CHF 500,000.00, notwithstanding the above. If the claims of several members exceed this maximum limit, the claim of the individual member shall be reduced in proportion to the sum of all claims for damages to the maximum amount. The above limitation of liability does not apply to claims for compensation of the damage caused by the delay in payment of damages. The liability limit includes all extrajudicial and judicial costs.
The operator is not liable for personal injury or damage to property. In the case of grossly negligent or intentional causation of such damages by the operator or a legal representative or a vicarious agent (consultant, supervisor, etc.), the operator is liable within the framework of the existing insurance contracts.

Any asserted claims are to be asserted immediately against the operator.
Further claims for damages are excluded.
