6. Provision of Licensed Software, Conditions of Use and System Requirements, Updates,
Cooperation by the Customer
6.1. The use of the Licensed Software begins with the initial provision of the Licensed Software by
granting the possibility of use (e.g. by sending the information required for logging in).
6.2. The Licensed Software is designed for use on certain hardware designated and authorized by
LIZ and for interaction with certain other computer programs. These conditions of use are
specified in the Order Form. In case of use of the Licensed Software without compliance with

available to it.
6.4. Upon conclusion of the contract, the Customer shall notify LIZ of the LIZ Sensors in its office

Customer shall ensure that the technical requirements specified for this purpose in the Order
Form are met by the Customer.
7. General and Development Services by LIZ
7.1. The subject of the respective service or development order is the agreed service designated in
the Order Form. As a rule, the services are provided against payment.
7.2. In case of doubt, the achievement of a certain outcome shall not be owed.
7.3. Subsequent changes to the content of service must be made in writing. In the event of
subsequent changes to the content of service, any deadlines, acceptance modalities,
compensation and reimbursement of expenses shall be adjusted in accordance with the
7.4. If the agreed service is the production of software, LIZ undertakes, insofar as this is technically
possible and nothing else has been agreed, to hand over the accompanying data sets and/or
the software to the Customer on a suitable data carrier or to install it on a web server.
7.5. All services provided by LIZ shall be checked by the Customer for their content and
functionality and shall be approved within seven days after receipt by the Customer. If they are
not approved in time, they shall be deemed approved by the Customer.
7.6. The Customer shall provide LIZ with all information and documents required for the
performance of the service without delay. It shall inform LIZ without delay about all events that
are of importance for the execution of the order, even if these circumstances become known
only during the execution of the order. The Customer shall bear the costs arising from the fact
that work has to be repeated by LIZ or is delayed as a result of incorrect, incomplete or
subsequently changed information provided by the Customer.
7.7. The Customer is obliged to check the documents provided for the execution of the order for
any existing rights of third parties. LIZ shall not be liable for infringement of such rights. If a
claim is made against LIZ due to such an infringement, the Customer shall indemnify and hold
LIZ harmless; the Customer shall compensate LIZ for all disadvantages incurred by LIZ due to
a claim by a third party. This also applies to reasonable costs of legal defense in this respect.
7.8. Deadlines and dates for deliveries and services indicated by LIZ or the Customer shall not be
fixed dates, unless they have been expressly agreed as such by the parties in writing. If the
performance of LIZ is delayed for reasons outside of its control or for which it is not
responsible, such as events of force majeure and other unforeseeable events that cannot be
averted by reasonable means, the performance obligations of LIZ shall be suspended as long
as the impediment exists. The performance deadlines shall be extended accordingly. If such
delays last more than two months, the Customer and LIZ shall be entitled to withdraw from the
7.9. If LIZ is in default, the Customer may withdraw from the contract only after having granted LIZ
in writing a reasonable period of time, which may not be less than two (2) weeks, after the
occurrence of the default, and such period of time has expired to no avail.
7.10. If the Customer is in default of acceptance or violates other obligations to cooperate, LIZ shall
be entitled to claim the damage incurred by it, including any additional expenses. In this case,
the risk of accidental loss or accidental deterioration of the performance shall also pass to the
Customer at the time the Customer is in default of acceptance.
7.11. LIZ shall be entitled, at its own discretion, to perform the contractual services itself or to use
competent third parties as subcontractors for the performance of such services.
7.12. The Customer shall be entitled to independently commission third parties in connection with
the contractual service only after prior consultation with LIZ and at its own expense. Insofar as
the Customer commissions third party services, the respective contractors shall be vicarious
agents of the Customer.
7.13. Unless expressly agreed otherwise, the expenses incurred by LIZ in connection with the
respective service shall be reimbursed separately by the Customer. Expenses within the
meaning of this section are, in particular, third-party costs incurred by the commissioning of
third parties, travel and transport expenses, etc.
7.14. LIZ may request reasonable advances for expenses.
8. Industrial Property Rights and Copyrights; Defects of Title
8.1. Unless otherwise agreed, LIZ shall grant the Customer only those rights to the work results
that are necessary to achieve the purpose of the contract.
8.2. Unless otherwise agreed, LIZ is obliged to make the delivery free of third party industrial
property rights and copyrights (hereinafter: IPR) only in the country of the place of delivery. If a
third party raises justified claims against the Customer due to infringement of IPR by deliveries
made by LIZ in accordance with the contract, LIZ shall be liable to the Customer as follows:
– LIZ shall, at its option and at its expense, obtain a right of use for the relevant deliveries,
modify them in such a way that the IPR would not be infringed, or replace them if and to
the extent that the functionality of the owed software would not be significantly impaired
– If this is not possible for LIZ under reasonable conditions or if the subsequent performance
by LIZ fails within a reasonable grace period set by the Customer, the Customer may
withdraw from the contract or reduce the compensation in accordance with statutory
– The obligation of LIZ to pay damages shall be governed by section 10 of these GTC.
8.3. The aforementioned obligations of LIZ shall only exist to the extent that the Customer
immediately notifies LIZ in writing of the claims asserted by the third party, does not
acknowledge an infringement and all defensive measures and settlement negotiations are
reserved to LIZ; in this context, the Customer shall grant LIZ all powers of attorney and
authority necessary to defend the Software against the asserted rights of third parties. If the
Customer discontinues the use of the delivery for reasons of mitigation of damages or other
important reasons, the Customer shall be obliged to inform the third party that the
discontinuation of use does not constitute an acknowledgement of an infringement of IPR.
8.4. Claims of the Customer are excluded insofar as the Customer is responsible for the
infringement of IPR.
8.5. Claims of the Customer shall also be excluded if the infringement of the IPR is caused by
special specifications of the Customer, by an application not foreseeable by LIZ or by the fact
that the delivery is modified by the Customer.
8.6. LIZ reserves its unrestricted property rights and copyrights to cost estimates, drawings,
manuals and other documents (hereinafter: Documents). The Documents may only be made
accessible to third parties with the prior consent of LIZ and, if the order is not placed with LIZ,
shall be returned to LIZ immediately upon request.
8.7. In the event of other defects of title, the provisions of section 10 of these GTC shall apply
8.8. Further claims or claims other than those provided in this section 8 of the Customer against
LIZ and its vicarious agents on the basis of defect of title are excluded.
8.9. The Customer is not entitled to assign rights to the services, in particular the right to use the
owed software, to third parties without the prior written consent of LIZ.
8.10. If an assignment and/or transfer in the aforementioned sense has nevertheless taken place,
the Customer is obliged to inform LIZ of the name and address of the third party. The further
rights of LIZ in case of unauthorized assignment and/or transfer of the owed software remain
9. Rental Items
9.1. For safety reasons also, only the intended use is permitted for the items rented from LIZ. All
instructions for use, protective devices and protective regulations, in particular the accident
prevention regulations for the rented equipment, are to be strictly observed. The Customer is
not entitled to leave any Rental Item to a third party.
9.2. The Customer is not entitled to use a Rental Item that is damaged or not in safe operational
condition. The Rental Item may not be opened or repaired by the Customer or any third
person. All repairs are to be carried out by LIZ or a partner authorized by LIZ.
9.3. The Customer shall store the Rental Item carefully, in particular secure it against theft and
protect it from fire and the effects of the weather.
9.4. The Customer shall check the completeness of the items and accessories, including the
relevant operating instructions, upon taking over the Rental Item. LIZ shall assist with the
inspection upon request.
9.5. The Customer is liable for loss of or damage to the Rental Item or parts thereof. As
compensation for damages, the Customer shall pay the current list price for the Rental Item.

occurred. Excluded from the Customer’s liability for damages are such damages that are due
to normal wear and tear of the Rental Item.
9.6. The Customer is obliged to immediately report to LIZ any damage or wear and tear on the
Rental Item that occurs during the rental period.
9.7. If the Rental Item is not returned at the time agreed between the parties, the Customer shall
pay in full the rent due for the following time unit (by day, week or month, depending on the
Rental Item). LIZ reserves the right to assert a claim for damages in excess thereof.
10. Troubleshooting and Warranty
10.1. In the event of errors in the LIZ software, the reaction times provided in the SLA for
troubleshooting shall apply.
10.2. In the event of other errors in services, the Customer shall be entitled to first request correction
of the error and, if the error has not been corrected within a reasonable period of time after
notification, to request a reasonable reduction of the compensation for the duration of the
existence of the error.
10.3. Termination due to failure to use the licensed or Rental Items in accordance with the contract is
only permissible if the Customer has given LIZ sufficient opportunity to perform troubleshooting
and this has failed. A failure of troubleshooting is only to be assumed if it is impossible, if it is
refused by LIZ or delayed in an unreasonable manner, if there are reasonable doubts
regarding the prospects of success or if for other reasons it would be unreasonable for the
10.4. LIZ does not warrant that the contractual software is free from defects, errors, bugs and
temporary server failures despite the greatest possible care.
10.5. The Customer is obliged to provide LIZ with verifiable documents and information on the type
and occurrence of deviations from the performance description of the owed software and to
cooperate in the containment and identification of errors and sources of error.
10.6. The Customer is not entitled to remedy errors itself and to demand reimbursement of the
expenses required therefor unless the requirements of § 69 d) of the German Act on Copyright
and Related Rights are met.
10.7. The Customer shall immediately notify LIZ of any defects in LIZ. In doing so, the Customer
shall take into account LIZ’s instructions and forward to LIZ all available information necessary
for the elimination of the defect.
10.8. Warranty claims shall become time-barred twelve (12) months after the date on which the
Customer had knowledge of the existence of an error or after the date on which the Customer,
acting without gross negligence, should have become aware of the circumstances of the error
and reported it. This shall not apply in cases in which, because of the defect, claims for
damages are asserted for injury to life, limb or health and/or in cases in which the defect was
caused by gross negligence or wilful intent and/or in cases in which the damaging event
simultaneously involves the breach of a guarantee promise. Claims arising from the
inadequate fulfillment of remedy claims shall also become time-barred from the point in time
specified in sentence 1.
11.1. LIZ shall be liable for the loss of data only up to the amount that would have been incurred to
restore the lost data if it had been properly and regularly backed up.
11.2. The owed software has been examined by LIZ prior to its delivery to determine whether it
contains any disruptive or harmful software („virus“). This also applies with respect to any new
version or updates.
11.3. LIZ shall be liable for damages based on an intentional or grossly negligent breach of duty or
malice on the part of LIZ, its legal representatives or its vicarious agents. If LIZ is liable for a
grossly negligent breach of duty according to sentence 1, the liability for damages is limited to
the foreseeable, typically occurring damage.
11.4. In addition, LIZ shall also be liable for damages caused by simple negligence, insofar as the
negligence concerns the breach of such essential contractual obligations, the fulfillment of
which enables the proper execution of the contract in the first place and on the compliance
with which the Customer may regularly rely (cardinal obligations). In this case, however, the
liability is limited to the foreseeable, typically occurring damage.
11.5. Furthermore, LIZ shall be liable without limitation for damages to life, body and health for which
it is responsible and which are based on a negligent or intentional breach of duty. LIZ shall also
be liable, insofar as it has given a guarantee of quality or durability with regard to the
contractual products, within the scope of such guarantee.
11.6. Any further contractual or statutory liability is excluded – unless it is mandatory by law –
regardless of the legal nature of the asserted claim.
11.7. To the extent that LIZ’s liability is excluded or limited, this shall also apply to the personal
liability of its employees, workers, representatives and vicarious agents as well as to its liability
for their conduct.
11.8. The strict liability of LIZ for initial material defects of the Rental Item (§ 536a paragraph 1, 1st
alternative of the German Civil Code) is excluded.
12.1. The Customer shall protect the Licensed Software from unauthorized access by third parties
and shall ensure that no copy, publication or other form of disclosure of Licensed Software, in
whole or in part, occurs unless permitted under the user agreement. The Customer
acknowledges that the Licensed Software contains valuable confidential information and trade
secrets and that its unauthorized use and/or unauthorized copies may constitute damage to
12.2. The Customer undertakes vis-à-vis LIZ to keep secret all confidential information which
became or will become known to it in the run-up to and/or in the course of the execution of this
agreement, in particular to prevent any access to such information by third parties. The
Customer shall subject all of its authorized users, staff and employees to confidentiality
obligations to the extent defined herein, insofar as they are not already subject to such
obligations on the basis of their employment contract.
12.3. Confidential in the sense of this agreement is all information which is marked as such by LIZ or
whose confidentiality can be inferred from the circumstances.
12.4. The confidentiality obligation pursuant to section 12.2 shall not apply to confidential information
(i) which is already in the public domain or generally known at the time the Customer becomes
aware of it or which becomes known without a breach of this confidentiality obligation, (ii)
which is given to the Customer by a third party without a breach of a confidentiality obligation
to LIZ, (iii) developed by the Customer independently of these agreements; or (iv) if and to the
extent that the confidential information is required to be disclosed pursuant to an enforceable
governmental or court order and the Customer has notified LIZ promptly after becoming aware
of the disclosure obligation and has given LIZ the opportunity to object to such disclosure.
13. Data Protection and Order Processing
13.1. The LIZ software designated in the Order Form processes the data collected by the LIZ
Sensors. For this purpose, the Customer grants LIZ and third parties commissioned by LIZ the
right to retrieve the data collected by the LIZ Sensors on its office premises during the term of
the contract as well as to store such data as basis for the operation of LIZ and to make it
available to LIZ for retrieval.
13.2. If the Customer transmits personal data to LIZ in a non-anonymized form, the Customer shall
be, in the relationship between the parties, solely responsible for the lawfulness (under data
protection law) of the transmission to LIZ and the collection, processing or use of the
transmitted data in accordance with the agreement. In this respect, the Customer shall in
particular ensure that the requirements of order processing (Art. 28 DSGVO) are met, so that
LIZ collects, processes or uses transmitted personal data of third parties in the context of the
use of Licensed Software or the provision of Services as a processor for the Customer. For this
purpose, the parties shall enter into the order processing agreement attached to these terms
and conditions and in compliance with the requirements of Art. 28 DSGVO.
13.3. LIZ uses personal data provided by the Customer exclusively for the performance and
execution of the contractual relationship. As far as LIZ is the responsible entity within the
meaning of the data protection law, natural persons whose personal data are stored by LIZ
shall be entitled to the rights to information, correction, blocking and deletion guaranteed by
the relevant data protection law. These rights shall be exercised by sending a message by mail
or electronic mail to the following e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org. To the extent that LIZ
acts as a processor of the Customer, the Customer shall be entitled to the corresponding rights
to information. After expiry of the contractual relationship, the personal data shall be deleted
immediately. The deletion shall be replaced by blocking, insofar as the deletion is precluded by
legal, statutory or contractual retention periods, in particular, but not exclusively for the
settlement of the contractual relationship.
14. Term; Termination
14.1. Subject to the information in the Order Form, this agreement shall enter into force upon its
conclusion and shall apply in each case to the individual contract components or features to be
booked separately for the duration specified in the Order Form. Unless otherwise specified in
the Order Form, the respective agreement per contract component/feature shall be valid for a
minimum term of 12 months („Minimum Term„), during which the respective contractual
relationship may not be terminated. It shall be automatically extended by a further 12 months
in each case, unless one of the parties notifies the other party with a notice period of 3 months
to the end of the Minimum Term or to the end of the respective extension period that an
extension is not desired. For this purpose, a notification in text form to the respective e-mail
address of the other party specified in the Order Form shall suffice.
14.2. The right to extraordinary termination of this agreement for good cause remains unaffected. A
good cause for extraordinary termination by LIZ is given in particular if
the Customer is more than four (4) weeks in arrears with full payment of the
the Customer is more than 2 days in arrears with the return of a Rental Item
the Customer has provided third parties with unauthorized access to the Licensed
14.3. Furthermore, an extraordinary termination is permitted with a notice period of two (2) weeks if
each case if and to the extent that LIZ has issued a warning to the contractual partner and
within a period of two (2) weeks the breach has not ceased and it has not been proven that the
breach is not ongoing.
14.4. The extraordinary termination must be in writing (e-mail to the e-mail address provided by the
other party shall be sufficient).
14.5. Upon termination of this agreement, all rights of the Customer to use the contractual software
shall expire (unless LIZ has expressly granted the rights thereto irrevocably). The Customer
shall return to LIZ or, in accordance with LIZ’s instructions, delete or destroy any deliverables
that may have been provided and any copies that may have been made thereof and, upon
LIZ’s request, provide LIZ with written confirmation as evidence of compliance with this
14.6. All payment obligations relating to this agreement and arising prior to termination of this
agreement and all provisions relating to confidentiality, proprietary rights, industrial property
rights and protection and restrictions on the use of Licensed Software shall survive any partial
or complete termination of this agreement.
14.7. If the Customer continues the use of the Licensed Software or the Rental Item after the
termination of the user agreement or if the Customer does not prevent such use by another
User, the Customer shall be obliged to pay to LIZ a compensation in the amount of the Usage
Fee or rental fee that would have incurred for the period of use and to compensate LIZ for any
further damages, if and to the extent that the Customer is responsible for such contractual
14.8. In case of termination without notice, the Customer shall immediately return to LIZ any Rental
Item received from LIZ. If the Rental Item is not returned within 2 days, LIZ has the right to
have the Rental Item collected at the expense of the lessee.
15.1. If unforeseeable events due to force majeure, e.g. pandemics, mobilization, war, riots, or
similar events, e.g. strike, lockout, significantly change the economic value or the content of
the delivery to the detriment of LIZ or have a significant impact on the operation of LIZ, the
contract shall be adjusted appropriately in good faith. If the latter is not economically justifiable,
LIZ shall have the right to withdraw from the contract. If LIZ intends to make use of this right of
withdrawal, it shall notify the Customer within three weeks after becoming aware of the event.
If no notification is made within this period, its right of withdrawal shall expire.
15.2. The Customer may only set off its own claims against claims of LIZ or assert rights of retention
on the basis of such claims if the claims are undisputed or have been finally determined by a
court of law.
15.3. Unless otherwise agreed in writing, the place of performance and fulfillment shall be the
registered seat of LIZ.
15.4. If the Customer is a merchant, a legal entity under public law or a special fund under public
law, the sole place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising directly or indirectly from the
contractual relationship shall be the registered seat of LIZ. However, LIZ shall also be entitled
to bring legal action at the general place of jurisdiction of the Customer.
15.5. The legal relations in connection with this contract shall be governed by German substantive
law to the exclusion of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of
15.6. LIZ reserves the right to amend the GTC. In case of an amendment of the GTC, LIZ shall notify
the Customer of the amendments of the GTC in text form (e.g. by e-mail) („Amendment
Notice“). The amendments shall become effective vis-à-vis the recipient and the contractual
relationship shall be continued under the amended terms and conditions if the Customer does
not object to these amendments within four (4) weeks after receipt of the Amendment Notice
by notification in text form. The timely dispatch of the objection to LIZ shall be sufficient to meet
this deadline. In case of an objection, both parties shall be entitled to extraordinary termination.
LIZ shall specifically draw the attention of the recipient to the aforementioned consequence of
failure to object in the written Amendment Notice.
