(4) The terms and conditions may be changed by the provider, provided that this does not affect the essential provisions of the contractual relationship and they are necessary to adapt to developments that were unforeseeable at the time of conclusion of the contract and their non-consideration would significantly disturb the balance of the contract. Significant regulations are in particular those concerning the type and scope of the contractually agreed services and the term, including the rules on termination and liability.

(4.2) Customers who make use of recurring services of the provider (so-called subscription, or perpetual obligation) are entitled to a special right of termination in case of a change of these terms and conditions by the provider, which entitles them to terminate the corresponding continuing obligation with the provider before the proposed effective date of the change without notice and free of charge in writing. If the customer does not cancel in writing within six weeks after receipt of the notification of change, the changes become part of the contract at the time of the effective date.

(4.3) The customer is informed of these consequences in the change notification.

§ 2 Subject of the contract

(1) The provider’s offering includes a variety of services in the areas of online platform content marketing (e.g. sub-licensing platform content, cartography, DMS, apps, online marketing, content management, software development, technical support, etc.).

(2) The provider provides the concrete service after placing the order to the terms of the specified service description. This applies, in particular, to the type and scope of the services as well as prices and the processing time in which the provider completes the order.

§ 3 Conclusion of contract

(1). The presentation and promotion of articles on the website of the provider at https://corporate.outdooractive.com/ does not constitute a binding offer to conclude a purchase agreement by the provider, but serves to make a binding offer by the customer (order).

The offer can be bindingly accepted by the customer by signing the order form and returning it to the supplier by post, fax or scan. With the receipt of the signed order form with the provider, the contract with the provider is concluded.

§ 4 Storage of the contract text

§ 5 Prices, terms of payment, due date, set-off, right of retention

(1) Costs and prices result from the respective product offer of the provider. All prices quoted are final prices. They include all price components, including VAT. The amount of a possibly additionally incurred administration fee also depends on the product and results from the respective product offer.

(2) Payment by the customer shall be made in accordance with the payment plan attached in the offer of the provider. The methods of payment accepted by the provider are prepayment and direct debit.

(2.1) Bei der Zahlungsart Vorkasse durch Überweisung nennt die Anbieterin dem Kunden ihre Bankverbindung in der Auftragsbestätigung. Der Rechnungsbetrag ist vom Kunden auf das angegebene Bankkonto der Anbieterin zu überweisen. Bei Überweisungen aus dem nichteuropäischen Ausland sind etwaige Bankspesen vom Kunden zu tragen.

(2.1) In the payment method “advance payment by bank transfer”, the provider shall inform the customer about his bank details in the order confirmation. The invoice amount is to be transferred by the customer to the specified bank account of the provider. For transfers from non-European countries, any bank charges are to be borne by the customer.

(2.2) In the case of the payment method SEPA direct debit and the successful transmission of bank details by the customer, the provider is revocably authorized to collect the invoice amount from the specified (giro) account (SEPA mandate). By specifying the current account, the customer confirms that he is entitled to direct debit via the corresponding checking account and that the account has sufficient cover so that the amounts due can be collected by the provider. The invoice amount is due for payment after a SEPA direct debit mandate has been issued, but not before the deadline for the preliminary information has expired. Pre-notification is any communication (such as an invoice) by the provider to the customer that announces a debit of the account via SEPA direct debit. If the customer is an entrepreneur, the deadline for the preliminary information is shortened to one day for both direct debits and follow-on direct debits. The preliminary information on the collection of the SEPA direct debit is sent to the customer by email to the email address provided by him. If the direct debit is not redeemed due to a lack of adequate account coverage or due to an incorrect bank account or if the customer objects to the debit, although he is not entitled to do so, the customer shall bear the fees resulting from the non-payment or the chargeback of the respective credit institution, if he has to represent this.

(3) Contracts with customers from countries outside the EU may incur additional costs for which the provider is not responsible. These are to be borne by the customer. These include, inter alia, costs for the transfer of money by credit institutions (e.g. transfer fees) or import duties or taxes (e.g. customs duties).

(4) The services rendered are charged to the customer by the provider. Unless otherwise agreed in writing, the agreed-upon fee shall be due immediately upon receipt of the invoice. The provider reserves the right to withhold services until the invoice is settled.

(5) During default, the interest rate is 9 percentage points above the base rate. The provider reserves the right to prove and assert a higher damage caused by delay.

(6) Recurring services are billed by the provider according to the individually agreed intervals in the payment plan. If the customer defaults in his contracts for two months or more with monthly payments, the provider may terminate the contract without notice.

(7) The customer shall only be entitled to offset if his counterclaims have been legally established or are undisputed or have been acknowledged by the provider or are in a close synallagmatic relationship with the provider’s claim. The customer is only authorized to exercise a right of retention insofar as his counterclaim is based on the same contractual relationship.

§ 6 Special conditions for contractual services, subject matter, training

(1) The provider offers various services in the field of online marketing and design services, as well as coaching and training in the field of content management. In addition to the analysis of the customer’s Internet offer, the provider also defines goals and measures with the customer for a tailor-made concept, or a campaign of content management or online marketing.

(2) The provider advises and assists the customer in optimizing the reach of his content via the output channels of the Outdooractive platform. However, the provider owes no specific ranking, no specific positioning and no specific traffic or conversion rates of the contents of the customer. Nor does the provider owe a specific economic purpose or advertising success beyond the agreed performance by optimizing the ranges.

(3) Insofar as the subject matter of the contractual service of the provider is the organization of in-house training, this will be provided by the instructor named in the service description in the premises of the customer on site. If necessary, the provider is entitled to replace the intended speaker with another suitable person. Suitable training facilities with computer workstations for demonstration purposes are to be provided by the customer for the purpose of organizing the training. Expenses (e.g. meals, accommodation, conference expenses) as well as travel expenses incurred by the provider are not included in the price for in-house training and must therefore be paid separately by the customer.

§ 7 Special conditions for service and sales contracts, due date, acceptance, warranty, retention of title

(1) Notwithstanding § 5 (4) sentence 2 of these provisions, the remuneration for agreed and performed work performances of the provider shall be due on acceptance of the service by the customer, unless otherwise agreed in the payment plan. The customer is obliged to accept the substantially contractual performance at the request of the provider.

(2) The provider is entitled to demand from the customer one or more partial acceptances of definable parts of the work to be performed. If all parts of service have been accepted, the last partial acceptance is at the same time the final acceptance. A partial or final acceptance is the same if the customer does not accept within a reasonable time set by the provider after delivery or refuses the acceptance or if the service is used by the customer.

(3) The provider guarantees that the services rendered in accordance with the sales contract and the contract for work and services correspond to the contractually defined performance specifications.

(3.1) The customer is obligated to examine the service of the provider, as far as this is in accordance with orderly business transaction, immediately after delivery and to reprimand any defects without delay. If the customer fails to report the defect, the service is deemed to have been approved, unless it is a defect that was not identifiable during the investigation. If such a defect later arises, the notification of the defect must be made immediately after the discovery in writing, otherwise the performance shall also be considered as approved in view of this defect. § 377 of the German Commercial Code (HGB) remains unaffected. The customer is not exempted from his obligation to inspect, even in the case of recourse of the entrepreneur according to § 478 of the German Civil Code (BGB). If, in such cases, he does not immediately indicate the defect asserted by his customer, the service shall also be deemed approved in view of this defect.

(3.2) Ist die Leistung der Anbieterin mangelhaft, so ist die Anbieterin zur Nacherfüllung berechtigt. Die Anbieterin ist unter Berücksichtigung der Art des Mangels und der berechtigten Interessen des Kunden berechtigt, die Art der Nacherfüllung zu bestimmen. Eine Nacherfüllung gilt nach dem erfolglosen dritten Versuch als fehlgeschlagen. Diese Ziffer gilt nicht im Fall des Rückgriffes nach § 478 BGB.

(3.3) In the event of subsequent performance in the event of defects, the provider shall only be obliged to bear the expenses required for this, in particular transport, travel, labor and material costs, as these are not increased by transferring the item to a location other than the registered office or commercial branch of the customer to whom the goods have been delivered. This number does not apply in the case of recourse to § 478 BGB.

(3.4) The claims of the customer including claims for damages become time-barred in one year. This does not apply in the case of recourse to § 478 BGB, this also does not apply in the cases of §§ 438 (1) no. 2 BGB and § 634a (1) no. 2 BGB. This also does not apply to claims for damages for injury to life, limb or health or due to a grossly negligent or intentional breach of duty by the provider or their vicarious agents. The sale of used goods is subject to exclusion of any claims for defects.

(4) Until full payment, the goods ordered by the customer remain the property of the provider.

§ 8 Special conditions for continuing obligations, contract duration, subscriptions, discounts, contract renewal, termination

(3.2) After the expiry of the agreed contract period, the contract is automatically extended by the period originally selected by the customer, but not by more than one year, unless it is given four weeks prior to the end of the respective contract period in text form (e.g. email, letter, fax) is terminated.

(4) The right to extraordinary termination for cause remains unaffected.

§ 9 Change of the contracting party

The transfer of rights and obligations under this contract from the customer to third parties requires the express and written consent of the provider.

§ 10 obligations to cooperate, interruption of service

(1) An essential factor for the provision of the contractually agreed services by the provider is the cooperation of the customer. The customer will support the provider in providing the contractual services to an appropriate extent. In particular, the customer provides the provider with all data and documents necessary for the provision of services free of charge and will provide the provider with all necessary information upon request.

(2) If the services of the provider exist in the preparation of concepts or analyzes or the support of the customer in their preparation, the customer shall provide the necessary cooperation and undertake measures for the implementation of the concepts within the framework of the economically appropriate.

(3) The customer will take the necessary precautions to measure the number of visitors and install the Outdooractive Tracking.

(4) If the customer does not fulfill his duties to cooperate or insufficiently, the provider is released from its performance obligations for this period, as far as the respective services cannot be provided due to insufficient or insufficient fulfillment of the obligations to cooperate or only with disproportionate effort.

§ 11 Data Protection, Data Security and Confidentiality

(1) The contracting parties will comply with the respectively applicable data protection regulations, in particular those valid in Germany, and oblige their employees employed in connection with the contract and its implementation with the data secrecy according to § 53 of theFederal Data Protection Act, insofar as these are not already generally obligated accordingly.

(7) If the customer violates a duty under paragraphs 1-6 for reasons for which he is responsible, the provider may claim damages in accordance with § 12 of these GTC.

(8) The provider sends at regular intervals (about weekly) corporate newsletter to the customer. With the newsletter, the provider informs customers about themselves and their offers. If the customer wishes to receive the newsletter, the provider requires from the customer a valid email address and information that allows her to verify that the customer is the owner of the specified email address or whose owner agrees to receive the newsletter. Further data is not collected. These data are used only for sending the newsletter and will not be given to third parties. By registering for the newsletter, the provider stores the IP address of the customer and the date of registration. This storage is solely the proof in the event that a third party abuses an email address and logs on without the knowledge of the claimant for the newsletter reception. The customer can revoke the consent to the storage of the data, the email address and their use for sending the newsletter at any time. The revocation can take place via a link in the newsletters themselves, in the DMS of the provider or by notification to the contact options specified in § 1 paragraph 1 of these terms of use.

§ 12 Liability

(1) The provider shall be unlimitedly liable – irrespective of the legal grounds – for intentional or grossly negligent damages (gross negligence).

Cardinal obligations are the essential obligations that form the basis of the contract, which were decisive for the conclusion of the contract and on the fulfillment of which the customer may rely. The liability in this case is limited to the foreseeable, contract-typical damage. Incidentally, claims for damages are excluded.

(3) In the event of damage due to loss of data to the customer, the provider shall only be liable to the extent of the expense incurred if the customer regularly and adequately performs data backup and thereby ensures that lost data can be recovered at a reasonable cost. This limitation of liability does not apply in the case of intent and gross negligence.

(4) The provisions of the Product Liability Act remain unaffected.

(5) Insofar as the liability of the provider is excluded or limited, this also applies to the personal liability of the employees, representatives and vicarious agents of the provider.
