§ 7 Component information without warranty

we assume that components brought to the COMPONIVERSE® have been been built up with great effort. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee that all components were created correctly. First because mistakes might have been made, on the other side there are no real standards. A TO220 for example is not always the same! Several manufacturers have packages with that name, without mentioning differences. And we're afraid it is the same with all other component properties too. Vendors substitute components with similar ones, without giving notice. Hence check all information from our component data base, compare all with the original manufacturer's data sheets, order samples of the components in advance. Do not trust in simulation models. Build up prototype boards and test those sufficiently. Please immediately report every error that you find in our component data base and send an eMail to us! All legal responsibility or liability in case of a consequential damage is impossible.

User claims for damages are excluded, as far as there isn't declared anything different herafter. This liability exclusion shall be used against the legal representative and auxiliary person of the owner as well, as far as the user claims against them.
