The following General Terms and Conditions of InLoox GmbH, Walter-Gropius-Strasse 17, 80807 München, (hereinafter referred to as "InLoox") apply to the use of the online services on the "InLoox now!" platform (hereinafter referred to as "Online Services").
1. Scope of application
Our General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter referred to as "T&C") apply exclusively; we do not acccept contrary conditions or conditions of the customer that deviate from our Terms and Conditions unless we explicitly approve of their application in writing.

2.1. These T&C govern the Online Services provided by InLoox. Through the Online Services InLoox provides the customer with the technical possibility and authorisation to access services, which are operated on a central server of InLoox, via the Internet under inlooxnow.de directly in the web browser and/or through desktop software and to use the functionalities of the Online Services in connection with this Agreement.
2.2. The use of the desktop software by the customer subject to a separate, independent end-user licence agreement. In connection with the installation of the desktop software the customer agrees to the terms and conditions of the end-user licence agreement.

3.2. Unless otherwise agreed in the order, the Online Service is available 24/7 ("Operation Hours"). The average availability during the Operation Hours amounts to a monthly average of 99.5 % with regard to the scope of responsibility of InLoox. The regular maintenance windows of the system, which can be found at www.inloox.de/support/inlooxnow/wartung, are not included in the calculation of the availability ("Maintenance Times"). During the aforementioned times, the application might still be available, but may also be subject to interruptions and limitations; however, there is no claim for use. If maintenance works are required during the Operation Hours and the application is hence not available, InLoox will, if possible, inform the customer about this in due time.

The customer does not receive any additional rights, in particular with reference to the software. The software is not handed over to the customer.
4.2. The customer is not entitled to use the Online Services beyond the use permitted in accordance with this Agreement or to make them available to third parties. In particular, the customer is not entitled to reproduce or sell the Online Service wholly or in parts or to permit the use for a certain period; the customer is in particular not entitled to rent or lend it.
4.3. The customer may only use the Online Services for his own business activities through own staff and/or authorised third parties who use the Online Services on behalf of him ("Authorised Users").

4.4. For each case, in which the customer culpably enables third parties to use the Online Services, the customer has to pay a penalty in the amount of the sixfold remuneration; any such payment shall become due immediately. InLoox reserves the right to assert further damages. In any such case penalty will be credited against the claim for damages.
4.5. To the extent InLoox provides the customer with new versions, updates or upgrades of the Online Services during the term of this Agreement, the aforementioned right of use applies accordingly.
4.6. In the case of an unauthorised permit of use, the customer shall immediately and upon request provide InLoox with any information for the assertion of claims against the user, in particular his/her name and address.
4.7. If the contractual use of the Online Services is affected by IP rights of third parties without InLoox' fault, InLoox is entitled to refuse rendering the services affected by this. InLoox will inform the customer about this immediately and will grant him/her access to his/her data in an appropriate way. In any such case the customer is not obliged for payment. Any other claims or rights of the customer shall remain unaffected.
5. Test version, beta version
5.1. If the customer has signed up for a test version or beta version of the Online Services, he can use it free of charge for a period of 30 days in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement.

In the case of slight negligence, InLoox is only liable for any damage caused by it and its legal representatives or vicarious agents as a result of the infringement of a material contractual obligation. Contractual obligations are considered material if required to duly execute the Agreement and on which InLoox regularly relies on and may rely on. In this case, liability shall be limited to the compensation of the foreseeable, typically occurring damage.
10.3. InLoox' liability for indirect losses and lost profits is excluded.

11. Data protection and data security
11.1. The data uploaded by the customer will be saved on servers in Germany in data centers in Frankfurt am Main and Magdeburg. The basis for data processing is the agreement on data processing attached to these conditions, which is expressly agreed between the parties by acceptance of these conditions.
11.2. InLoox does not collect, process or use any personal data on behalf of the customer in connection with rendering the services pursuant to this Agreement except as the data stored by customer as defined in clause 11.1 above; InLoox does not have access to any such data either.

12. Force majeure
12.1. InLoox is released from the obligation to render services arising from this Agreement if and insofar the non-performance of services can be attributed to the occurrence of conditions of force majeure after the conclusion of the Agreement.
12.2. Circumstances of force majeure include for example war, strike, riot, expropriation, fundamental legal changes, storm, floods and other natural disasters as well as any other circumstances for which InLoox is not responsible, in particular water ingress, blackouts and cut-offs or destruction of data cables.
12.3. Each contractual party has to immediately inform the respective other contractual party in writing about the occurrence of a case of force majeure.
The contractual parties undertake to treat as confidential any business and trade secrets which they - including their vicarious agents - have obtained on the occasion of entering into the Agreement or fulfilling the Agreement. These obligations do not apply to information, knowledge and experiences which
(a) are publicly known as can be verified without infringing this secrecy obligation,

(c) were received by a third party which is not subject to a secrecy obligation or
(d) were verifiably gained through independent work.
14. Term of Agreement, termination
14.1. The Agreement is entered into for the contractual term as agreed upon in the order (minimum term). The Agreement is extended by the same period of time as the minimum term (extension term), unless one of the contractual parties terminates the Agreement prior to the end of the minimum term or the respective extension term.
14.2. The right of termination for good cause shall remain unaffected. In addition to clause 8.2., InLoox is, in particular, entitled to extraordinarily terminate the Agreement if the customer
14.2.1. infringes material provisions of this Agreement or does not fulfil main duties arising out of the Agreement and does not remedy this breach of duty despite a written warning within a reasonable deadline;
14.2.2. becomes insolvent (meaning e.g. that he cannot fulfil salary payments or receivables of suppliers anymore) or is overindebted.
14.3. The customer's right to extraordinarily terminate the Agreement without notice is excluded if the contractual use of the Online Services, whether wholly or in parts, is not granted in time or is blocked again (Sec. 543 para. 2 item 1 BGB).
14.4. If the customer extraordinarily terminates the Agreement, InLoox refunds to the customer the remuneration already paid in advance.
14.5. If InLoox extraordinarily terminates the Agreement for a reason for which the customer is responsible, the customer has to pay the outstanding remuneration until the end of the minimum term.
14.6. All notices of termination pursuant to this Agreement have to be made in writing. The point in time of receipt of the termination letter is decisive for adhering to the notice periods.
15. Obligations upon and after termination of the Agreement
15.1. During the term of the Agreement and within 30 days after the termination of the Agreement the customer's data saved on InLoox' servers are available for download by the customer, provided that the customer has not finally deleted the respective data from the server.
15.2. For these purposes, InLoox provides the customer with a download application within the Online Services. Customer data can be downloaded as a file in the SQL format; documents and enclosures can be downloaded in their original format.
15.3. After expiry of 30 days after termination of the Agreement, the customer does not have any claim for transmission of the data saved by him. InLoox will separately point this out to the customer after receipt of the termination.
16. Final provisions

16.2. The customer can only transfer the rights and obligations out of this Agreement to third parties upon written consent of InLoox. However, InLoox is entitled to transfer the rights and obligations out of this Agreement to an allied company within the meaning of Secs. 15 et seqq. German Stock Corporation Act (Aktiengesetz). InLoox will inform the customer about this in writing; in any such case, the customer is entitled to extraordinarily terminate the Agreement.
16.3. Amendments or supplements to this Agreement and its exhibits have to be made in writing and have to be signed by both parties.
16.4. This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the Federal Republic of Germany under exclusion of the UN Convention on the International Sale of Goods (CISG) and international law (in particular German laws of conflict).
16.5. As far as the customer is not a consumer in the sense of § 13 BGB, the place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from this contract including its appendices is Munich. The same applies if the customer has no general place of jurisdiction in Germany or his place of residence or usual abode is not known at the time the action is filed.
16.6. If individual clauses of the present Agreement are invalid wholly or in part, any possibly invalid provision shall be reinterpreted, supplemented or replaced in a way that the economic purpose that was originally intended with the invalid provision is achieved. The same shall apply if this Agreement contains any gaps.
16.7. The contract language shall be German. These General Terms and Conditions are available in German and in English. The German version only is decisive and binding for the interpretation of individual provisions and/or if there are any contradictions between the language versions.

InLoox GmbH, Walter-Gropius-Strasse 17, D-80807 München
- Order processor - hereinafter referred to as the Contractor -
1. Subject matter and duration of the order
(1) The subject matter of the order depends on the respective order of the customer and the general terms and conditions referenced therein, which are referred to altogether here (hereinafter referred to as “Service Agreement”).
(2) The duration of this order (term) is the same as the term of the Performance Agreement.
2. Specification of the order content
(1) The type and purpose of the processing of personal data by the Contractor for the Client are described specifically in the Service Agreement. The Contractor will provide the following services in particular for the Client within the framework of the Service Agreement:
The provision of the contractually agreed data processing will be carried out by the Contractor itself exclusively in a member state of the European Union or in another contracting country of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Any other relocation to a third country requires the prior permission of the Client and may only take place if the specific requirements in accordance with Art. 44 et seqq. GDPR are fulfilled. This consent can be granted for individual processing cases named in this Contract for one specific third country at a time, even with regards to subcontracting relationships. Where expressly indicated in Appendix 1 - Technical and Organisational Measures - individual processing operations take place outside a Member State of the European Union or in another Contracting State to the Agreement on the European Economic Area; in these cases, however, the appropriate level of protection is always guaranteed in the third country (see Appendix 2) and ensured by the measures specified in Appendix 1. Any other transfer to a third country requires the prior consent of the Client and may only take place if the special requirements of Art. 44 et seqq. GDPR are fulfilled. Such consent may be granted for individual processing operations referred to in this contract for a specific third country, including in respect of subcontracting relationships.
(2) The subject matter of the processing of personal data is the following data types/categories (list/description of the data categories):
(3) The categories of the persons concerned by the processing include:
3. Technical and organisational measures
(1) Before beginning the processing, the Contractor must document the implementation of the necessary technical and organisational measures specified before the placing of the order, in particular with regards to the specific order performance, and hand the documentation over to the Client for verification. Upon acceptance by the Client, the documented measures will form the basis of the order. If the verification/an audit by the Client results in a need for adjustment, this must be carried out mutually.
(2) The Contractor must establish the security in accordance with Art. 28(3)(c) and Art. 32 GDPR in particular in connection with Art. 5(1) and (2) GDPR. Altogether, the measures to be executed are measures for data protection and to guarantee a protection level appropriate to the risk in terms of the confidentiality, integrity, availability and capacity of the systems. The technical sophistication, the implementation costs and, and the type, extent and purpose of the processing, and the different likelihood of occurrence and severity of the risk for the rights and freedoms of natural persons within the meaning of Art. 32(1) GDPR must thereby be considered. The particular technical and organisational measures taken are listed in Appendix 1.
(3) The technical and organisational measures are subject to the technical progress and the further development. In this respect, the Contractor is permitted to implement alternative adequate measures. The security level of the set measures may thereby not fall below the minimum requirement. Significant changes must be documented.
4. Amendment, restriction and deletion of data
(1) The Contractor may not amend or delete data that is processed in the order, or restrict its processing, on its own authority, but may only do so after receiving documented instructions from the Client, if no statutory requirements oblige the Contractor to take action independently. Should a person concerned contact the Contractor directly in this respect, the Contractor will forward this solicitation immediately to the Client.
(2) If included in the scope of the service, the deletion plan, right to be forgotten, correction, data portability and information must be ensured directly by the Contractor after receiving documented instruction from the Client.
5. Quality assurance and other duties of the Contractor
In addition to compliance with the regulations of this order, the Contractor also has statutory duties in accordance with Art. 28 to Art. 33 GDPR; in this respect, it guarantees adherence to the following standards in particular:
a) Written order of a data protection officer that carries out its activities in accordance with Art. 38 and Art. 39 GDPR. The contact details of the data protection officer must be shared with the Client upon contract conclusion. Changes of the data protection officer must be reported to the Client immediately.
b) The safeguarding of confidentiality in accordance with Art. 28(3)(2)(b), Art. 29 and Art. 32(4) GDPR. When carrying out its work, the Contractor will only use employees who are bound to confidentiality and have been familiarised beforehand with the data protection provisions relevant to them. The Contractor and any person subordinate to the Contractor who has access to personal data may only process this data in accordance with the instructions of the Client, including the authorisations granted in this Contract, unless they are legally obliged to process the data.
c) The implementation of and compliance with all technical and organisational measures necessary for this order in accordance with Art. 28(3)(2)(c) and Art. 32 GDPR. The details are listed in Appendix 1.
d) The Client and the Contractor will work together with the supervisory authority, upon request, in the performance of their tasks.
e) The immediate informing of the Client about control actions and measures by the supervisory authorities, if they relate to specific and fundamental assignments and if such information is not prohibited by law. This also applies if a competent authority is carrying out an investigation of the order processing by the Contractor in relation to the processing of personal data, within the framework of administrative offence or criminal proceedings.
f) If the Client is subject in turn to an examination by the supervisory authority, administrative offence or criminal proceedings, the liability claim of a person concerned or a third party, or another claim in connection with the order processing by the Contractor, the Contractor must support it to the best of its abilities, to the extent legally permitted.
g) The Contractor will regularly control the internal processes, as well as the technical and organisational measures, in order to guarantee that the processing within its area of responsibility takes place in accordance with the requirements of the applicable data protection law, and that the protection of the rights of the person concerned is guaranteed.
h) Verifiability of the technical and organisational measures for the Client within the framework of its control authorisation in accordance with Figure 7 of this Contract.
6. Subcontracting relationships
(1) Subcontracting relationships within the meaning of this rule are such services that relate directly to the provision of the main service. These do not include secondary services that the Contractor uses, e.g. in the form of telecommunications services, post/transport services, maintenance and user services or the disposal of data carriers, as well as other measures to ensure the confidentiality, availability, integrity and capacity of hardware and software of data processing systems. However, the Contractor is obliged to also use appropriate and lawful contractual agreements and control measures to guarantee the data protection and data privacy of the Client’s data in the case of outsourced secondary services.
(2) The Contractor may only assign subcontractors (other order processors) after receiving prior explicit written permission or documented permission from the Client.
a) The Client agrees to the tasking of the subcontractors named in Appendix 2 under the condition of a contractual arrangement in accordance with Art. 28(2-4) GDPR.
b) Changes of the existing subcontractor are permitted provided that:
(3) If the subcontractor provides the agreed service outside the EU/EEA, the Contractor will ensure legitimacy under data protection law by corresponding measures. The same applies if service providers within the meaning of Sect. 1(2) are used.
(4) Any further outsourcing by the subcontractor requires the explicit permission of the main client (text form at least). All contractual regulations in the contract chain must also be imposed on the other subcontractor. The technical and organisational measures of subcontractors must comply with the technical and organisational measures defined herein and may only fall below the level agreed herein in justified circumstances.
7. Control rights of the Client
(1) The Client has the right, in consultation with the Contractor, to carry out reviews or have reviews carried out by examiners named on a case-by-case basis. It has the right to convince itself of the adherence to this Agreement by the Contractor in its business operations by means of random sample controls that must generally be announced in a timely manner and 14 days beforehand at the latest.
(2) The Contractor will ensure that the Client can be convinced of the adherence to the obligations of the Contractor in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR. The Contractor is obliged to share with the Client, upon request, the required information and in particular demonstrate the implementation of the technical and organisational measures.
(3) The demonstration of such measures that do not just concern the specific order can take place by:
8. Reporting of violations by the Contractor
(1) The Contractor will support the Client in the compliance with the duties for the security of personal data, reporting obligations in the event of data breaches, data protection impact assessments and prior consultations, named in Articles 32 to 36 GDPR. This includes, inter alia:
a) Ensuring a suitable protection level by means of technical and organisational measures that consider the circumstances and purpose of the processing and the forecasted probability and severity of a possible rights violation by security flaws, and enable immediate detection of relevant incidents of violation;
b) the obligation to immediately report breaches of personal data to the Client;
c) the obligation to support the Client within the framework of its obligation to provide information to the party concerned, and provide it with all relevant information in this regard immediately:
d) immediately forwarding solicitation from people concerned, e.g. right to information, to the Client;
e) supporting the Client in its data protection impact assessment;
f) supporting the Client within the framework of prior consultation with the supervisory authority.
(2) For support services that are not included in the service description or cannot be traced back to misconduct of the Contractor, the Contractor may claim a compensation. The basis for the calculation of the remuneration is the Service Agreement or the general remuneration rates of the Contractor for comparable activities.
9. Authority of the Client to issue instructions
(1) The Client will confirm verbal instructions immediately (text form at least).
(2) The Contractor must inform the Client immediately if it is of the opinion that an instruction violates data protection regulations. The Contractor is entitled to discontinue the implementation of the corresponding instruction until it is confirmed or changed by the Client.
10. Deletion and return of personal data
(1) Copies or duplicates of data will not be produced without the knowledge of the Client. Exceptions are backup copies, if they are necessary to guarantee proper data processing, and data that is necessary in terms of adherence to statutory retention obligations.
(2) After the completion of the contractually agreed work or earlier upon request by the Client – upon the termination of the Service Agreement at the latest – the Contractor must hand over all documents, processing and use results produced, and databases, that it obtains possession of in connection with the contractual relationship, to the Client or destroy them in accordance with data protection law after obtaining prior permission. The same applies for test and scrap material.
(3) Documentation that proves proper data processing that is suitable for the order must be stored by the Contractor in accordance with the respective retention periods beyond the end of the Contract. It may transfer it to the Client for its relief at the end of the Contract.
The point of contact on the part of the Client, and also for data protection, is generally the point of contact named as the billing contact; this can be changed or added to at any time by the Client.

General practice. Microsoft has taken the following security measures for the online services, and will maintain and follow them. In connection with the security obligations in the OST, these security measures represent the individual responsibility of Microsoft in relation to the security of customer data:
Information security guideline for online services
For Microsoft Azure core services and Microsoft Cloud App Security, a written data security guideline (“Information Security Guideline”) applies, containing the control standards and framework conditions of ISO 27007, inter alia.

For each test, a test report will be created (“Microsoft test report”), which will count as confidential information of Microsoft. The Microsoft test report will clearly disclose the significant findings of the examiner. Microsoft will immediately rectify all problems detected in a Microsoft test report, to the satisfaction of the examiner.
Upon request by the customer, Microsoft will provide the customer with the individual Microsoft test reports, so that the customer can convince itself of Microsoft’s compliance with the security obligations under the terms of the DPT. The Microsoft test report is subject to the confidentiality and distribution restrictions of Microsoft and the examiner.
