If no notice of termination is given, the contract will be extended for a further contract period.


8.2       Both parties reserve the right to terminate the contract for cause. The notice of termination can be given in written or electronic form as well as, by you, via the "Manage Account" menu item.


8.3       We have the right to terminate your access and thus this contract of use immediately for good cause, in particular if you culpably violate essential obligations of this user contract (e. g. culpable misuse of the access data according to clause 4.6 or violation of our rights to the contents) and you do not discontinue such an infringement within a reasonable period of time despite our request.


  1. Warranty, Maintenance Periods, Liability


9.1       The claim to use our services exists exclusively within the current state of the art.


9.2       The statutory liability for defects applies. We reserve the right to interrupt or limit access to content for a short period of time if this is necessary with respect to capacity limitations, the security or integrity of the servers or to carry out maintenance work. We will inform you in advance of any such measures, if possible. For technical reasons in particular it may not be possible to access the activated content temporarily or only to a limited extent (unanticipated system failures). Otherwise, the statutory warranty applies.


9.3       Claims for damages due to violation of duty and tort as well as claims for reimbursement of futile expenses are excluded against us as well as against our vicarious agents and assistants.


9.4      The aforementioned limitation of liability shall not apply in the event of intent or gross negligence, as well as in the case of violation of essential contractual duties, i. e. such contractual duties which make the proper execution of the contract possible and on the compliance of which you may regularly rely, and the violation of which on the other hand would jeopardize the achievement of the purpose of the contract. Furthermore, it shall not apply to damages resulting from injury to life, limb or health if we are responsible for the violation of duty. Furthermore, the limitation does not apply to damages that are based on the absence of a warranted property or in cases of liability according to the product liability act.

12.3     Link to the OS Platform according to Art.14 para. 1 of the Regulation (EU) No. 524/2013:



            We are not legally obliged to participate in a dispute settlement procedure before a consumer arbitration board. In the event of a conflict with you, we shall endeavour to find a mutually acceptable solution. Since arbitration boards are liable for costs, with regard to your properly understood interest in minimizing expenses, we do not voluntarily participate in dispute settlement proceedings.


12.4     Should one of the provisions of this agreement be or become void or invalid, the remainder of the contract shall not be affected. By mutual agreement, the parties shall replace such provisions by such new, valid provisions which most closely correspond the purpose of the contract.
