  4. Bereitstellung von Diensten durch FlyNex

    1. FlyNex offers users of the services and/or downloads the purchase of usage rights (“license certificates”) for which a fee is charged. The purchase of a license certificate entitles the user to access the data, tools and storage capacities provided within the scope of these services and/or downloads. Access to and use of paid services and/or downloads without a license certificate is not permitted. If discounts or rebates are granted for the purchase of chargeable usage rights, these shall in each case relate exclusively to the first billing period.
    2. The paid services are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week with an availability of 99 % on an annual average. Excluded from this are downtimes due to maintenance and software updates as well as times in which the service cannot be accessed via the Internet due to technical or other problems that are beyond the control of FlyNex (force majeure, fault of third parties, etc.). In order to be able to use the services of FlyNex to the full extent, the user must use the latest (browser) technologies or enable their use on his computer (e.g. activation of Java script, cookies, pop-ups). If older or not commonly used technologies are used, the user may only be able to use FlyNex’s services to a limited extent. In the event that FlyNex services cannot be provided, even temporarily, the user shall not be entitled to any compensation. As far as the use of services that are not subject to a charge or test versions (referred to as “BETA version” to the user before the start of use) is concerned, FlyNex does not guarantee availability. When using the services via mobile devices, the user may incur additional connection costs on the part of his mobile phone provider; these costs are borne exclusively by the user.
    3. A license certificate entitles the user to use the services identified in the respective license certificate from the time the license is concluded until it is terminated. Unless expressly agreed otherwise in a license certificate, the user shall receive a simple, non-exclusive right of use limited to the territory of the European Union, limited to the term of the license certificate and non-transferable to the extent and in the number stated in the license certificate. In particular, any reproduction or publication of information or pictorial representations, such as screenshots, without the prior consent of FlyNex is excluded. A change between the license models is possible – in accordance with the license models available on the websites in each case. A downgrade of the license models is generally not provided for and is subject to the individual agreement between the user and FlyNex. The passing on of the license to affiliated companies in the sense of § 15 of the German Stock Corporation Act (AktG) is not considered a transfer. A license certificate also entitles the user, as the license holder, to grant guest access to the services to persons as defined in section 1.2. in accordance with the details of the respective license certificate (guest user). Guest access is subject to the content and limits of the contractual relationship between FlyNex and the user; in case of granting guest access, the user is fully liable for the acts and omissions committed by a third party by means of such guest access. In compliance with these principles, the guest access is freely transferable and is valid locally without limitation; however, the number of guest accesses granted according to the license certificates may not be exceeded in the total of simultaneous uses. The guest user is not entitled to allow or otherwise enable third parties to use the services. The user is obligated to inform the guest user about the content and limits of his contractual relationship with FlyNex and to ensure that the guest user complies with the legal and contractual regulations governing the use of the Services, in particular these Terms of Use. In case of violation by guest users, the user is liable to FlyNex for any damages incurred.

    1. The user is obligated to pay the remuneration for FlyNex shown in the license certificate in accordance with the payment terms listed therein and to keep his payment data (contact data, billing data) up to date at all times for this purpose. The respective current payment amount results from the respective booked subscription. FlyNex provides a monthly or annual payment method, depending on the subscription, in each case in advance.
    2. The user may place further orders in the course of using the Services. The GTC mentioned here shall apply to all further orders. The payment amount remains unchanged during the term of use of a paid service, unless the user changes the underlying parameters, in particular the number of managed objects, users, upgrades in the area of storage or additional functions as seen on the pages of FlyNex. This change can be made by the user by placing an additional order or activating additional features and scopes of services in his account.
    3. In case of renewal of the user’s subscription, FlyNex may increase the fees to the current list prices, which is set forth in the overview of products and services.

The user has to agree to these payment terms of the third party provider “Stripe” as a condition for the binding booking of chargeable services and/or downloads. In the event that the user is not already registered with the payment service “Stripe” or is a customer there, the user undertakes, as a condition precedent for the granting of the rights of use in accordance with the above clause 4, to ensure without culpable hesitation that his payments are made via this.

      – the privacy policy, which can be accessed at https://stripe.com/de/privacy,is referred to, which apply to the payment as an integral part of these GTC.

      All payment details are provided exclusively by the user via “Stripe”. The user has the option to pay e.g. by direct debit or by credit card. The credit card or bank account will be debited after the order has been completed. If a payment by direct debit is cancelled via chargeback, FlyNex will issue a claim to the user in the amount of the invoice total, plus the costs incurred for the chargeback, as well as a processing fee. FlyNex is entitled to invoice its services electronically, especially to send invoices by e-mail.

      – Usage of the Service in a manner that violates national or international laws and regulations or the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
    7. Failure to comply with one of the behavioral obligations mentioned in clause 5.6 may – after prior opportunity to comment and/or warning – lead to a measure according to clause 6.2 below. In addition, FlyNex is entitled to extraordinary termination. The user is liable to FlyNex for damages in case of a culpable violation of the contractual obligations.
    8. The user is obligated to back up his data and data sets stored on the servers provided by FlyNex in an appropriate form at appropriate intervals. The user is obliged to take all reasonable measures to prevent unauthorized access to the services by third parties.

  6. Cancellation / Termination / Blocking

    1. The user has the right to terminate the contract in accordance with these terms and conditions. If the user, who is a consumer pursuant to Section 13 of the German Civil Code (BGB), does not terminate the contract 14 days prior to the expiry of the contract term, the contract shall be extended by the duration of the subscription concluded.

The user will be notified of a change in writing or by e-mail and if the user does not object in writing or by e-mail within one month, the change will become part of the contract with FlyNex, provided that FlyNex has expressly pointed out this consequence.

FlyNex will also inform the user that the change will come into effect unless the contract is terminated. If the user objects to the change, FlyNex, for its part, reserves the right to terminate the contract. Usage of services by the user concluded at that time remains unaffected.
  10. Other Conditions

    1. These GTC as well as the relationship between FlyNex and the user shall be governed exclusively by German law, excluding the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG).

User may not assign or transfer this Agreement without FlyNex’s prior written consent, except in the event of a merger, reorganization or sale of all or substantially all of its assets, a change of control, or by operation of law, provided, however, that the assignee shall not be a competitor of our company. FlyNex may assign this Agreement to any affiliate of FlyNex or upon a merger, reorganization, sale of all or substantially all of its assets, change of control, or by operation of law.
    6. If any provision of these GTC is invalid or unenforceable in whole or in part or subsequently loses its validity or enforceability or if a loophole is found, this shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions. In place of the invalid or unenforceable provision or in order to fill the loophole, the parties undertake to agree on an appropriate provision which, insofar as is legally permissible, comes as close as possible to what the parties intended or would have intended in accordance with the meaning and purpose of the contract if they had known of the invalidity or loophole. If the invalidity or impracticability of a provision is based on a measure of performance or time (deadline or date) stipulated therein, the legally permissible measure closest to the provision shall be agreed.
