The contractual terms will depend on your contract partner.
If your contract partner is InLoox GmbH based in Munich, Germany, the Software Service Agreement of InLoox GmbH will apply.
If your contract partner is InLoox, Inc. based in San Francisco, USA, the Software Service Agreement of InLoox, Inc. will apply.
On the date of the order this Agreement is concluded between InLoox GmbH, Walter-Gropius-Straße 17, 80807 Munich/Germany (“InLoox“) and the orderer (“Licensee“).
§ 1 Subject Matter of the Agreement
InLoox will provide updates, i.e. improved versions of the license software as well as upgrades, i.e. further developed versions of the license software if agreed on in the order. If a newer version of the license software has been made generally available by InLoox, InLoox shall make this newer version available to the Licensee free of charge on a suitable data medium or via download including the respective documentation.
The obligation to provide software service only applies to the current program version. The licensor is responsible for the installation of the newer version.
§ 2 Payment
For the software service as described in § 1 above Licensee pays an annual fee of 20 % in addition to the respective list prices for all licenses acquired. The prices are calculated subject to the statutory amount plus VAT.
§ 3 Term of the Agreement
The Agreement enters into force upon order date. The Agreement is concluded for a period of one year and can be terminated in writing with a period of notice of one day to the end of the contract. A termination is admissible to the date of expiry of the first contractual year. If the Agreement is not terminated subject to the period of notice, it will automatically be extended by twelve months.
§ 4 Special right of termination in case of the end of the life time cycle
InLoox can terminate this Agreement by complying with a period of notice of three months to the end of each calendar quarter if Licensee declines an offer made by InLoox to switch to a current version of software used by Licensee and being the subject matter of this contract, for which software the life time cycle has expired, against reasonable payment. The life time cycle of the software, which is the subject matter of this Agreement, ends two years after the last delivery/ installation at a customer. It is excluded to refund already paid or invoiced periods after the termination.
§ 5 Warranty
The statutory provisions on liability for defects (warranty) shall apply with the following provisions:
a) The limitation period for warranty claims is one year from the provision of the newer version, if and insofar as the newer version is an upgrade.
b) As part of its liability for defects, InLoox itself or via third parties commissioned by InLoox will first attempt to rectify or have the fault rectified.
c) A liability for the correctness of file contents is excluded, as the data input takes place via the licensee. It is necessary and obligatory for the licensee to check file contents before they are applied.
If Licensee made a claim on InLoox for warranty or service and if it turns out that either there is no defect or the defect does not oblige InLoox to take an action, Licensee has to refund any costs whatsoever incurred on part of InLoox if Licensee made the claim on InLoox with gross negligence or with intent.
§ 6 Liability
The following applies both to liability for defects and liability for other legal reasons:
a) If the Licensee asserts claims for damages, InLoox shall be liable in accordance with the statutory provisions insofar as the claims are based on a breach based on intent or gross negligence on the part of InLoox, including intent or gross negligence on the part of representatives or vicarious agents of InLoox. Insofar as InLoox or its representatives or vicarious agents are not accused of intentional breach of contract, the liability for damages is limited to the foreseeable, typically occurring damage.
b) InLoox shall be liable in accordance with the statutory provisions if InLoox culpably violates an essential contractual obligation (cardinal obligation), i.e. even in the event of simple negligence; in this case its liability for damages shall be limited to the foreseeable, typically occurring damage.
c) Liability for expressly agreed characteristics of the software is not limited by the above provisions, insofar as the expressly agreed characteristics should protect the licensee precisely from the damage that has occurred.
d) The liability of InLoox (including its representatives and vicarious agents) for legal claims arising from the Product Liability Act and for claims arising from culpable injury to life, body or health shall not be limited by the above provisions.
e) Unless otherwise agreed above, any further liability of InLoox within the scope of liability for defects and in other liability cases is excluded. In particular, liability for defects shall not apply if and insofar as the software is handled improperly by the Licensee or is used in a defective or incompatible hardware or software environment. The same applies if the licensee makes unauthorized changes to the software.
f) In case of a claim made on InLoox arising from liability, a contributory negligence of Licensee has to be taken into account in a reasonable way, in particular in case of insufficient error reporting or insufficient data backup.
g) It is the Licensee’s own responsibility that current data backup is carried out in a suitable way and that a prompt and economically reasonable recovery of lost data is assured.
§ 7 Data Protection, Confidentiality
1) InLoox ensures that within the scope of the performance of this contract, InLoox does not take any actions that violate existing data protection regulations.
2) InLoox ensures that all persons commissioned by InLoox have made a commitment to data secrecy and are bound to secrecy.
3) The parties mutually commit themselves to treat all information received in connection with this contract as confidential and to keep it secret indefinitely.
4) The parties are obliged to mark all confidential information as "confidential" (or "vertraulich").
5) Under this contract, personal data is only collected with regard to the customer relationship between the parties to which the data protection principles of InLoox's General Terms and Conditions apply. No other personal data is collected, as InLoox has no access to the licensee's systems under this contract.
§ 8 Miscellaneous
In the event that one or more provisions of this contract should be invalid, the remaining provisions shall remain in force. To replace the legally ineffective provision in the sense and purpose of this agreement accordingly by the parties by mutual agreement by an effective provision which comes as close as possible in its economic effect to that of the ineffective provision.
In addition, InLoox's currently valid General Terms and Conditions (GTC) shall apply. If Licensee places an order, the provisions of this Agreement and InLoox's General Terms and Conditions shall take precedence over the provisions of Licensee's order, the validity of which is expressly excluded.
