7. Approximation of Disclaimer and Damage Waiver
IF THE DISCLAIMER AND DAMAGE WAIVER MENTIONED IN SECTION 5 AND SECTION 6 CANNOT BE GIVEN LEGAL EFFECT UNDER APPLICABLE LOCAL LAW, REVIEWING COURTS SHALL APPLY LOCAL LAW THAT MOST CLOSELY APPROXIMATES AN ABSOLUTE WAIVER OF ALL CIVIL LIABILITY IN CONNECTION WITH THE CONTRIBUTION.
