(2) BERGGEHEIMNIS shall only be liable for damages caused by negligence in the event of a breach of an obligation that is essential for the proper fulfilment of the contract and on the fulfilment of which the customer may regularly rely. In this case, BERGGEHEIMNIS's liability shall be limited to the amount of foreseeable damage typical for the contract.

(3) Insofar as BERGGEHEIMNIS's liability for damages that are not based on injury to life, limb or health is not excluded for slight negligence, such claims shall become time-barred within one year beginning at the end of the year in which the claim arose and the creditor becomes aware of the circumstances giving rise to the claim and the identity of the debtor or should have become aware of them without gross negligence.
