7.1 If claims concerning product liability are made against us, the Contractor shall indemnify us for such claims if and to the extent that such defect is caused by the contracted item provided by the contractor. In cases of fault-based liability this only applies if any fault is attributable to the contractor. In these cases the contractor takes over all costs and expenditures including the costs for possible legal proceedings or recall actions. Furthermore, the statutory provisions shall apply.
