§ 6 Technical support
DATRON offers technical support services and can be reached at service(at)DATRON.de or by telephone: +49 (0) 6151-1419-999. DATRON provides technical support at its sole discretion and these services are not linked to any guarantee or warranty. It is your responsibility to back up all your existing data, Software and applications before you receive technical support from DATRON. DATRON reserves the right to suspend, terminate or refuse to provide any technical support at its sole discretion.
§ 7 Warranty (concept of Gewährleistung under German law)
- DATRON offers a warranty on the agreed quality as specified in the user documentation and that you can use the Software without infringement of third-party rights. The warranty for defects does not apply to defects resulting from the fact that the Software is used in a hardware and/or software environment that does not meet the requirements specified in the user documentation or to changes and modifications made by you to the Software without being entitled to do so by law or this EULA, or without the prior written consent of DATRON.
- As a Business, you must inspect the Software for obvious defects as soon as reasonably practicable upon receipt and notify DATRON as soon as reasonably practicable if such defects exist, otherwise warranty for such a defect is excluded. The same shall apply accordingly if such a defect becomes apparent at a later date. § 377 of the German Commercial Code, HGB, shall apply in this respect.
- Because you are a Business, DATRON may initially provide subsequent performance in the event of a defect, i.e. it may, at its own discretion, remedy the defect ("rectification of defects") or deliver a replacement. In the event of a replacement delivery, you may have to adopt a new version of the Software, unless this would be unreasonably onerous. In the event of a defective title, DATRON shall, at its own discretion, either provide for a legally unobjectionable way to use the Software or modify the Software so that it no longer infringes on third-party rights.
- DATRON is entitled to carry out warranty-related activities on your premises. DATRON may also fulfil its obligation to remedy defects if it makes Updates with an automated installation routine available for download on its homepage and offers the Customer support by telephone to solve any installation problems that may arise.
- Your right to either reduce the purchase price or withdraw from the contract, at your discretion, remains unaffected in the event that the repair or replacement delivery fails twice. A right of withdrawal does not exist in the case of insignificant defects. Liability by DATRON for your claims for damages or compensation for wasted expenditure is governed by § 8 below.
- With the exception of claims for damages, warranty claims based on defects become time-barred after twelve (12) months, unless DATRON fraudulently concealed the defect, assumed a guarantee for the quality of the Software or is responsible for intent or gross negligence. The limitation period starts when the Licence Key is communicated to you. Claims for damages and compensation of wasted expenditure are governed by § 8.
§ 8 Liability
- Liability on the part of DATRON is not limited in the following cases:
- intent or gross negligence;
- culpable injury or death;
- defects DATRON has fraudulently concealed;
- governed by the provisions of the Product Liability Act; and
- scope covered by guarantee assumed by DATRON.
- DATRON shall only be liable for damage resulting from a slightly negligent dereliction of duty by DATRON or its legal representatives or agents if this constitutes an essential breach of contract (i.e. of an obligation owed by DATRON that is crucial for the achievement of the purpose of the contract, or to which DATRON must adhere to and that, if not fulfilled, may jeopardise the achievement of the purpose of the contract). In the case of a slightly negligent breach of a fundamental condition of contract, liability shall be capped at an amount of reasonably foreseeable damage.
- DATRON does not assume any other or further liability.
- The above limitation of liability also applies to the personal liability of DATRON's employees, representatives and committees.
§ 9 Protection measures, right to audit
- You are obliged to take appropriate measures to protect the Software and, if applicable, the respective Licence Keys for online use from access by an unauthorised third party. In particular, the Licence Keys must be kept in a safe place.
- At DATRON'S request, you must assist DATRON in ascertaining that the Software is used properly, in particular whether you use the Software in accordance with the Licences acquired by you, both in terms of quality and quantity. To this end, you will provide DATRON with information, grant access to relevant documents and records and enable DATRON or an auditing company appointed by DATRON and acceptable to you to check the hardware and Software environment used. DATRON may carry out the inspection on your premises during regular business hours or have it carried out by a third party bound to secrecy. DATRON will try to ensure that your business operations are disturbed as little as possible by its activities on site. If the inspection reveals any other, non-contractual use, you must pay the costs of the inspection, otherwise DATRON will.
§ 10 Confidentiality
- You are obliged to maintain secrecy about Confidential Information that becomes known to you, e.g. during activities permitted by law in accordance with § 69 lit. (d) of the German Copyright Act UrhG.
- This duty does not apply to Confidential Information that are:
(a) demonstrably already known to the recipient at the time of acceptance of this EULA or subsequently have become known to the recipient from a third party without breach of any confidentiality agreement, statutory provision or public order;
(b) publicly known at the time of acceptance of this EULA or are subsequently publicised, provided that this is not attributable to a violation of the present Agreement;
(c) must be disclosed by law or by order of a court or public authority. A recipient subject to a disclosure obligation will, to the extent permissible and possible, inform DATRON in advance and enable it to take action against the disclosure.
- You will disclose Confidential Information only to those employees who need to have this information to correct the error, and you will oblige these employees to maintain confidentiality even after they leave the company, to the extent permitted by employment law.
- Any culpable violation of these rules will entail prosecution under civil and criminal law.
§ 11 Data protection
DATRON collects, stores and processes personal data of the ordering companies as is necessary for the transaction. DATRON is also entitled to have this data processed and stored by a third-party contractor.
The data protection measures that must be observed when operating the Software are your responsibility in your capacity as the user of the Software.
§ 12 General provisions
- All disputes arising in connection with this EULA or its validity shall be finally settled in accordance with the Arbitration Rules of the German Institution of Arbitration e.V. (DIS) without recourse to the ordinary courts of law. The place of Arbitration shall be Frankfurt/Main, Germany. The applicable law shall be the German law to the exclusion of any other jurisdiction. The language of the proceedings shall be English.
- If a provision of this EULA is or becomes wholly or partially invalid, the validity of the remaining provisions shall not be affected. The invalid provision/part of the provision shall be deemed replaced by a legally valid provision that is nearest to the purpose pursued by the invalid provision.
- Each and any rights not expressly set forth in this EULA are reserved by DATRON.
- Your general terms and conditions of business are inapplicable.
- Software may be subject to export and import restrictions. In particular, official licences may be required or the use of the Software or related technologies abroad may be subject to restrictions. The applicable export and import control regulations of the Federal Republic of Germany, the European Union and the United States of America and all other relevant regulations must be adhered to.
- You are not entitled to assign the rights you have under this EULA without the prior written consent of DATRON. § 4 para. 10 remains unaffected.
- DATRON reserves the right to amend this EULA at any time.
