General terms and conditions (GTC)

1.1 Terms of contract

These general terms and conditions form an integral part of all contracts between AGRIDEA, hereinafter also referred to as “contractor”, and the client. In the event of any contradictions, the contract takes precedence over the terms and conditions.

1.2 Prices and terms of payment

1.2.1 Prices and additional costs

If a price is not set in the contract, the contractor's price list applies. The majority of the services provided by the contractor are subject to VAT. This will be billed to the customer, even if no VAT is mentioned in the contract or price list.

1.2.2 Discounts

Any discounts relate to the service purchased and cannot be accumulated.

1.2.3 Price changes

In the case of periodic invoicing (e.g. licenses, services based on expenditure), the contractor can adjust prices to the changed circumstances at any time with three months' notice. If the price increase does not exceed the general rate of inflation, the client has no right of termination.

1.2.4 Payment dates and default

The payment dates are specified in the contract or with the order. If there is no contractual provision, the deliveries and services are payable at the end of the contract. The client is in default 30 days after the invoice has been issued. The other statutory rights of default are reserved.

1.3 Guarantee, liability

1.3.1 Obligation to notify

In the event of delayed or defective deliveries or services, the client must inform the contractor in writing of the exact complaints immediately, but no later than after ten days.

1.3.2 Defect, rectification

A defect is a deviation from the warranted properties or the unsuitability for the use specified in the contract.

In any case, the contractor is given the opportunity to correct defects within a reasonable period of time.

1.3.3 Liability of the contractor

The contractor is liable for culpably caused direct personal injury and property damage, in accordance with the statutory liability provisions, up to the maximum amount of the liability insurance cover. For personal injury or property damage caused by a subcontractor, the subcontractor alone (or its insurance company) is liable, with the limitations of liability mentioned above. Any further or other liability on the part of the contractor and its employees and subcontractors is expressly excluded, insofar as this is legally permissible. Data security, the provision of alternative solutions and the results achieved when using the services provided are the responsibility of the client. As a result, the contractor is not liable for data loss, pure financial loss, direct and indirect damage, consequential damage, loss of income or savings not achieved.

1.4 Property rights

1.4.1 Intellectual property

All intellectual property rights remain with the contractor. The client does not acquire any rights to programs, inventions, copyrights, trademarks, the concept or know-how that go beyond the personal use of the contractual services. Section 1.4.2 is reserved. The client may not transfer the acquired rights of use to third parties.

1.4.2 Tailor-made solutions

The results of services (including software developments), which are provided individually for the client, become his property after full payment with the transferable property rights. The contractor can continue to use the ideas, processes and findings used for development free of charge.

1.4.3 Confidentiality

The contractor is obliged to treat as confidential the information of the other party that comes to its knowledge during the execution of the contract and to protect it against any unauthorized access by third parties. The client can release the contractor from this obligation. Publicly accessible information or information from the other party that was already known to the contractor is exempt from the obligation of confidentiality.

1.4.4 Data protection

AGRIDEA complies with the provisions on the protection of personal data, i.e. the protection of privacy and protection against misuse of personal data. Only the data that are entered when logging in or filling out the profile in the interactive platform are saved. AGRIDEA stores personal data in an appropriate manner and only uses it for internal purposes (for example, the information made available to us is used to create a distribution list or to inform users about a course). However, this data will not be passed on to third parties without the express consent of the person concerned.

1.5 Duration of the contract

1.5.1 Duration of the contract

The contract for deliveries and services remains in effect until it is fulfilled.

1.5.2 Conditions during the notice period

In the case of services, the average contractually agreed remuneration is also to be paid for the notice period, even if the client waives the services. The same applies to extra-time or early termination by the client for the entire remaining term of the contract.

1.5.3 Insolvency of the client / non-payment

If bankruptcy or inheritance proceedings are opened against the client, the contractor can terminate all contracts without notice and without compensation for the client. The contractor reserves the right to claim damages. If the payments are not made within the deadlines, the contractor can discontinue its services 60 days after the expiry of the payment deadline without any claim by the client. As soon as the services are discontinued, any further work will be billed to the client at the applicable tariff.

Orders from the client that have been accepted by the contractor are also contractually binding.

2.4.2 Flat rate prices and cost ceiling

Flat-rate prices (fixed prices) must be expressly agreed as such in the contract. A cost ceiling is not considered a flat rate, but rather has the following meaning: when the cost ceiling is reached, the customer can decide not to continue the project without mutual damages. The contractor informs the client as soon as a certain percentage of the cost ceiling has been reached.

2.5 Dates

2.5.1 Dates

The dates contained in the contract are seriously determined planning bases. If binding deadlines are to be adhered to, these must be expressly designated as fixed deadlines in the contract. If such fixed dates are missed, the client can set a reasonable grace period in writing and withdraw from the contract for the corresponding partial service after the deadline has expired. All dates must be postponed accordingly if advance payments by the other party to the contract are not made in good time or in the event of extraordinary disruptions (e.g. force majeure, official measures, strike, failure of energy supply, telecommunications or traffic routes). The contractor's liability for damage caused by delay is limited exclusively to the circumstances mentioned in Section 1.3.
