These General Terms and Conditions (“Terms”) govern the rights and obligations between PlanRadar and PlanRadar’s customers.
2.1 These Terms form a binding agreement that governs the business relationship between PlanRadar and PlanRadar’s customers as to the use of PlanRadar’s products and services, whether for payment or not (e.g during trial phases). PlanRadar provides its products and services exclusively based on these Terms. Any use of PlanRadar products and services by the customer shall be governed by these Terms.
2.2 In addition to these Terms, the current PlanRadar price lists (see www.planradar.com), as well as any other contract terms to the extent that these have been individually agreed in writing, shall apply.
2.3 By using any products or services of PlanRadar, the customer agrees and confirms that only PlanRadar’s Terms shall apply to the contractual relationship between PlanRadar and the customer to the exclusion of any terms and conditions of the customer.
2.4 PlanRadar may periodically add to, modify or otherwise update these Terms in its sole discretion at any time. The customer will be notified of such changes via email at least two months before they will take effect. The customer may object to such change in writing within four weeks from receipt of the email. All changes will be deemed accepted and binding, if either (i) the customer has consented to the change or (ii) the customer has not objected to the change within the four-week period. In the event of an objection, PlanRadar may terminate the contracts concluded with the objecting customer under the immediately prior Terms for good cause, subject to a one-month notice period. If PlanRadar does not terminate one or more such contracts in the event of an objection, the immediately prior Terms shall continue to apply to such contract or contracts.
3.1 PlanRadar provides the customer with a system (potentially) consisting of several modules for construction documentation and defect management as software-as-a-service (“SaaS”) in the respective current version for use via the Internet, an app as client software as well as the possibility to store data (hereinafter collectively referred to as the “Software”).
3.2 Additional services, such as adapting the Software to the individual requirements of the customer, require a separate agreement.
3.3 PlanRadar reserves the right to further develop and change the Software and all specifications of the Software at any time (e.g. by using newer or different technologies, systems, processes or standards). The customer benefits from such ongoing Software development and accordingly acknowledges in return, that there may be times when temporary maintenance takes place in connection with any updates and upgrades. PlanRadar will notify the customer in good time if there will be any significant changes in Software performance. If the customer experiences material disadvantages as a result of significant service changes, the customer will be entitled, as its sole and exclusive remedy, to terminate the contract extraordinarily within 14 days of its receipt of the notification of the significant service changes with such termination taking effect on the date on which the changes became effective.
3.4 The customer has the option of using the Software free of charge for a period of 30 days after registration (the “test phase”). Before the end of the test phase, PlanRadar will contact the customer and inform the customer of the option to take out a contract in return for payment to continue to use the Software. If the customer does not take up this option, the customer’s right to use the Software shall immediately terminate and its user account will be locked and then deleted within 30 days.
3.5 In connection with the Software, PlanRadar may make available to the customer or the customer may separately license certain third party products (collectively, the “Third-Party Products”). All Third-Party Products are subject to their own terms and conditions provided by the Third-Party Products vendors. If the customer does not agree to abide by the applicable terms for any such Third-Party Products, then the customer should not install or use such Third-Party Products. EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE PROVIDED IN THE THIRD PARTY LICENSOR’S LICENSE AGREEMENT, IF ANY, ACCOMPANYING THE THIRD PARTY PRODUCTS, THE THIRD PARTY PRODUCTS ARE PROVIDED “AS-IS,” WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND AND PLANRADAR AND THE THIRD PARTY LICENSOR DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES WITH RESPECT TO THE THIRD-PARTY PRODUCTS, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF NON-INFRINGEMENT, TITLE, MERCHANTABILITY, AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. IN NO EVENT WILL PLANRADAR OR THE THIRD PARTY LICENSOR BE LIABLE TO THE CUSTOMER OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE THIRD PARTY PRODUCTS, EVEN IF THEY HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES OR LOSSES..
