Article 3 – Standard of Care
SP will, when carrying out the work in connection with a given order, insofar as reasonably possible, exercise due care. All agreements shall relate to obligations to perform to the best of one’s ability and never to obligations to guarantee certain results. All orders are considered to be given exclusively to SP and not to any person associated with SP.

Third parties cannot derive any rights from the work performed and its results.

SP is entitled to engage third parties at its discretion when carrying out orders. SP shall, as far as possible, consult the client before engaging third parties and shall in any event exercise due care in its selection of third parties. SP does not accept any liability for any non-performance on the part of these third parties or any damage related thereto. By instructing SP, the client authorizes SP to, if a person engaged by SP wishes to limit his liability, accept that limitation of liability on behalf of the client as well.
Article 6 – Intellectual Property
SP will obtain and own the intellectual property rights on all documents and exhibits and all concepts thereof created by SP in the course of carrying out the work, including but not limited to books, manuscripts, written letters, articles, blog posts, presentations in written, digital or oral form, podcasts, talks, (research) reports and all concepts thereof.
