(1) The Licensee shall be entitled to the full statutory warranty rights.

(3) The Licensee is requested to report any defects in a comprehensible and detailed manner. In this context, it would be good if the Licensee indicated in particular the steps that led to the occurrence of the defect, the appearance as well as the effects of the defect.

(4) The Licensee shall have no claim based on defects if the Software does not function properly only because the Licensee uses it under non-agreed conditions of use or in a non-agreed system environment or in a prohibited manner or has adversely modified it itself or through third parties and this is responsible for the defect.

§ 13

(1) The Licensor shall have unlimited liability, irrespective of the legal grounds, for intentional or grossly negligent conduct as well as for culpable injury to life, limb or health or in the event of a violation of the Product Liability Act or in the event of a warranted characteristic.

(2) The Licensor shall not be liable in the event of a slightly negligent breach of non-essential contractual obligations. In the event of a breach of non-essential contractual obligations, the liability of the Licensor shall be limited to compensation for the typical damage foreseeable at the time of conclusion of the contract. Material contractual obligations are obligations which protect the legal positions of the Licensee which are material to the contract, i.e. which the contract is intended to grant to the Licensee in accordance with its content and purpose, as well as obligations the fulfilment of which makes the proper performance of the contract possible in the first place and on the observance of which the Licensee may regularly rely.

Data protection

(1) Contract data will be collected for the contract pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b DSGVO (e.g. name, address and mail address, services used, if applicable, and all other data transmitted electronically or for storage that are required for the performance of the contract), insofar as they are required for the establishment, content or amendment of a contract.  

(2) The contract data will only be passed on to third parties if it is necessary (according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO) for the fulfillment of the contract, if this corresponds to the overriding interest in effective performance (according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO) or if there is consent (according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO) or other legal permission. The data will not be transferred to a country outside the EU unless the EU Commission has determined that data protection is comparable to that in the EU, consent has been given, or the standard contractual clauses have been agreed with the third party provider.

(3) Data subjects have the right at any time:
to revoke a granted consent pursuant to Art. 7 (3) DSGVO. Then the data processing based on this consent may no longer be carried out, but the revocation does not affect the lawfulness of the data processing carried out until then;
request information pursuant to Art. 15 DSGVO about the personal data processed, including information about the purposes of processing, the category of personal data, the categories of recipients to whom the data have been or will be disclosed, the expected storage period, the origin of the data if they have not been collected here, as well as about automated decision-making including profiling and the existing rights, which are explained here;
demand that, pursuant to Art. 16 DSGVO, inaccurate or incomplete personal data be corrected without undue delay, in particular if the purpose of processing has expired, a required consent has been revoked and no other legal basis exists or the data processing is unlawful;
demand that, pursuant to Art. 17 DSGVO, the stored personal data be deleted, unless the processing is necessary in the exercise of the right to freedom of expression, for the performance of a contract, for reasons of public interest or for the assertion or defense of legal claims;
demand that, pursuant to Art. 18 DSGVO, the processing of the personal data be restricted insofar as the accuracy of the data is disputed or the processing is unlawful and erasure is refused and the data are no longer needed, but the data subject requires them for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims or has objected to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 DSGVO;
request that the data provided be issued in a structured, common and machine-readable format or transferred to another controller;
complain to the competent supervisory authority pursuant to Art. 77 DSGVO, insofar as the processing of the personal data is not lawful, the competent supervisory authority is usually the supervisory authority of the habitual residence or workplace of the data subject or of the registered office of our company.
to object insofar as the personal data are processed on the basis of legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f DSGVO, if there are grounds for doing so that arise from the particular situation of the data subject.

(4) In principle, the data will only be stored for as long as required by the purpose of the respective data processing. Further storage is possible in particular if this is still necessary for legal prosecution or for legitimate interests or if there is a legal obligation to retain the data (e.g. statute of limitations, tax retention periods).

§ 16
Disputes - Arbitration - Amendment

(1) Online dispute resolution pursuant to Art. 14 (1) ODR Regulation: The European Commission provides a platform for online dispute resolution (OS), which the Licensee can find at http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/. The Licensor is not willing or obliged to participate in such dispute resolution.

(2) If the Licensee is a merchant, the place of jurisdiction shall be the Licensor's place of business; however, the Licensor shall also be entitled to sue the Licensee at the court having jurisdiction over the Licensee's place of residence or place of business.

(3) If serious reasons beyond the Licensor's control lead to an unforeseeable change of the contractual contents regulated in these Terms and Conditions (i.e. in particular not of the main services), and if the interests of the User in an adjustment of the Terms and Conditions outweigh the interests of the contractual partner in a typified manner, the Terms and Conditions User shall be entitled to change these Terms and Conditions, unless a provision for the case of a corresponding need for adjustment is already provided by law.

§ 17

(1) The Consumer is granted the right to evaluate the Software free of charge. No remuneration is required for this, but the Consumer shall not receive a license.

(2) Continued use of the Software requires a license.

(3) Evaluation without a license is currently unrestricted compared to use with a license. The restrictions may change at any time without notice.
