6. Duration, termination of the contract, switching between the types of use, repayment of fees paid in advance
6.1 The duration of a registration period amounts to one year. It is extended automatically by one year unless the contract is terminated at notice of one month before expiry of the registration period. Termination can be processed via the butterflymanager websites; a written notice of termination is not required. In the event of a termination, the user’s data is deleted from the butterflymanager systems. An exception is made with regards to the data that is necessary to avoid duplicate registrations and the data, which, for legal reasons, must be archived, pertaining to the documentation of registrations and any possible cooperations.
6.2 A switch to a different type of use is possible at all times. In the event of an upgrade, in the first year of the upgrade, the difference between the sums for the two types of use is due plus the previous annual subscription. For the years continuing, the usual annual fee applies. A downgrade is only possible at the end of the subscription year. No additional costs are incurred.
6.3 Repayment of fees paid in advance only takes place if the paid period of time is after the date upon which the notice of termination comes into force.

9. Liability of butterflymanager
9.1 Claims for damages – for whatever legal grounds – against butterflymanager (and their vicarious agents) that presuppose light negligence may only be made if a major contractual obligation/cardinal obligation has been breached. A cardinal obligation is an obligation the user can assume will be met and an obligation whereby proper execution of the contract is not enabled until this obligation is fulfilled. Claims for damages in this case are limited in amount to typical, foreseeable damage.
9.2 The limitations do not apply in as far as the damage is covered by the business liability insurance of butterflymanager and the insurer has paid butterflymanager.
