LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

If contractual obligations cannot be fulfilled in time or not at all in compliance with the contract, due to force majeure, e.g. war or upheaval, natural disasters or fire, epidemics or quarantine, strike or lock-out, measures of the government or similar events, DREGER IT shall be exempted from the obligation according to the scale of the force majeure. The parties will notify each other in case of force majeure immediately.

DREGER IT is liable according to the legal regulations, if the damage was caused by gross negligence or intent, if claims in accordance with the product liability law exist or in case of injuries to life, limb and health.

In case of a culpable failure to meet contractual obligations, which are not based on gross negligence or intent, DREGER IT incidentally only assumes liability for contract-typical losses. It is limited to the amount of the insured capital of the liability insurance that DREGER IT has taken out, which is 150.000,00 Euro. If the contract partner wishes for an additional liability, the amount of the insured capital can be raised at cost.

Additionally, a liability obligation of DREGER IT does not exist, especially not for lost profit, not-realized savings, damages resulting from claims of third parties or other direct or indirect damages. Furthermore, DREGER IT does not assume liability for the correctness, completeness and timeliness of the provided or retrieved and entered information provided by the contract partner. The sole responsibility in this case remains with the contract partner.

DREGER IT is not liable for the functionality of the data lines to the contractual server. The same applies to power shortages and failures of servers that are not within the responsibility of DREGER IT and also for defective software of third-parties that is used for rendering the services.

 

DATA PROTECTION / SECURITY

Upon registration, the contract partner is requested to choose a password that secures the access to his data. He will treat he password as confidential and will neither pass it on to third parties nor ill he use the access data of a third party. The password rule that is set as the standard corresponds to a high security level and is recommended by DREGER IT.

The password rule can be customized for the company environemt by the contract partner. The contract partner assumes the resulting risk of missuse or loss on his own responsibility.

The contract partner will take care of equipping his system wih the newest anti-virus software and scan his systems for viruses, especially before uploading files, on a regular basis. If the contract partner detects a virus in his system, he will immediately inform Dreger IT and name the specific description of the virus including other characteristics and will assisst Dreger IT in checking the entire system and finding the specific virus as appropriate.

The contract partner releases DREGER IT in the external relation from all claims that directly or indirectly result from the violation of this obligation. Furthermore, the contract partner committs himself to committing his users to such behavior and surveilling the observing of the premise and if necessary stopping misuse. For this contractual relationship and its performance, the provisions of the data protection act apply. In case DREGER IT stores data, DREGER IT will observe those provisions. If data is stored on a server that is not operated or commissioned by DREGER IT, the contract partner is at a minimum obliged to observe the statutory data protection and corresponding security prerequisites.

DREGER IT and its employees are bound to secrecy for all knowledge that is acquired while working with the contract partner. DREGER IT also binds the contract partner and his employees to secrecy and observance of data confidentiality.

This obligation to maintain confidentiality shall survive the termination of the contract.

 

USE / DUTIES OF THE CONTRACT PARTNERS

The contract partner uses the provided services in an appropriate manner and only for his own business. The transfer of the services to third parties (against payment or for free) in not included in the contractually manifested usage. The use of the services for e.g. remote access to other systems, mass e-mail distribution or other similar actions is not permitted or has to be coordinated with DREGER IT.

An external surveillance or analysis (e.g. security scans) of the services is not permitted and can lead to impairments or failures and may cause additional costs that have to be beard by the contract partner.

The contract partner has to provide the corresponding hardware, software, compliance with the own system, storage space and internet access on his own (see enclosed system specification) if it is not provided by Dreger IT.

In principle, the contract partner is obliged to take care of adequate data storage of all documents, files or other digital pieces of information, if this obligation was not assumed by DREGER IT, so that they can be restored with reasonable efforts by the contract partner.

If the contract partner receives an error notice, he immediately has to inform DREGER IT, specifying the situation in which the notice appeared and has to - if possible - send a screenshot.
