9.1 As far as LHT is not a party to the Communication conducted via AirGlance in accordance with clause 2.2 of the Terms, LHT is not liable for Communication conducted via AirGlance.

Users shall remain legally responsible for any and all of its operations and corresponding relations with authorities, government agencies and other third parties such as aircraft and component manufacturers and/or MRO service providers. This explicitly includes (if and to the extent applicable), but is not limited to, any and all responsibilities as an operator of aircraft and/or operations as an MRO service provider, as applicable.
9.3 LHT shall use reasonable effort to make and maintain AirGlance available via the internet. However, like other online services AirGlance's availability depends on services by third parties and also requires technical maintenance. Thus, AirGlance might be temporarily unavailable or only available with limited functionality. The availability level of AirGlance is targeted at 98%. LHT endeavours to announce scheduled maintenance of AirGlance well in advance.
9.4 LHT shall be liable for damages resulting from injury to life, body or health, for damages resulting from intentionally or grossly negligent acts or omissions by LHT, an employee or representative of LHT in accordance with the statutory provisions. For damages resulting from slight negligence acts or omissions by LHT, an employee or representative of LHT, LHT shall be only liable in events of a breach of a cardinal duty, i. e. those duties which are material to the proper performance of the contract and on the fulfilment of which the other party generally relies or is entitled to rely. In this case LHT's liability shall be limited to the typical, foreseeable damage (excluding loss in profits and indirect damages).
The User indemnifies and holds harmless LHT from and against any claims of third parties as well as any loss and damage (including any and all costs incurred hereby), resulting from,
- the use of AirGlance by the User which is not in compliance with these Terms; and
- claims of a third party based on the allegation that the use of AirGlance infringes a right of a third party;
- claims of a third party, including administrative orders, based on the allegation that the use of AirGlance by the User infringes any applicable law or regulation.

Following receipt of the Dispute Notice by the relevant party, the parties will attempt to resolve and bring an end to the dispute or disagreement. If the parties at the working level cannot resolve the dispute within thirty (30) Days from the date of receipt of the Dispute Notice by the relevant party, the parties will refer the dispute or disagreement to such senior officers as designated by each respective party for resolution. If resolution is not reached within further thirty (30) Days from the date of receipt of the Dispute Notice by the relevant party, then the parties may each pursue other remedies available under these Terms or applicable law.
12.2 Clause 12.1 does not prevent a party from seeking from a court of competent jurisdiction any equitable, interim, or provisional relief to avoid irreparable harm or injury.

Users shall be informed by LHT about such assignment in due time.
13.2 Unless explicitly stated otherwise herein, these Terms shall not be varied in terms or amended except by an instrument in writing explicitly named an amendment to these Terms and signed by duly authorized representatives of the Parties. Verbal agreements reached during the negotiations or during the period of these Terms shall not be binding upon either party unless and until mutually confirmed in writing. Failure by either party to enforce any of the provisions of these Terms shall not be construed as a waiver of such provisions. If any of the provisions of these Terms are held unlawful or otherwise ineffective by any court of competent jurisdiction, the remainder of these Terms shall remain in full force and the unlawful or otherwise ineffective provision shall be substituted by a new provision mutually agreed upon by the parties reflecting the intent of the provision so substituted.
13.3 Nothing in these Terms creates, implies or evidences any partnership or joint venture between the parties, or the relationship between them of principal and agent. None of the parties has any authority to make any representation or commitment, or incur any liability, on behalf of any other.
13.4 LHT reserves the right to amend the Terms without stating reasons at any time. Users shall receive the amended Terms via email and/or via a notification on AirGlance no later than two (2) weeks before the new Terms will come into effect. In the event User does not object the new Terms within two weeks after receiving the email and/or notification, the new Terms are deemed accepted. In the event User objects the new Terms LHT may terminate the User's Admin Account(s) and/or Account(s).
