Terms and Conditions

of ASCOMP Software GmbH, Fueller Street 2/1, 70839 Gerlingen, E-Mail: (hereinafter "ASCOMP")

§ 1 Scope

(1) These General Terms and Conditions and License Terms in their version valid at the time of the customer's order govern the contractual relationship between ASCOMP and individuals who order software from ASCOMP (hereinafter referred to as "Customer" or "You"). ASCOMP and the Customer are collectively referred to as the "Parties".

(2) The Customer assures that they are of legal age and fully competent to conduct business and that, if acting as a representative, they have the appropriate authority to represent.

(3) There are no verbal side agreements between the Parties. These General Terms and Conditions and License Terms exclusively apply. Deviating or conflicting terms and conditions of the customer do not apply; this is also true if ASCOMP does not expressly contradict the customer's terms and conditions.

(4) The right of withdrawal under § 3 only applies if the Customer is a consumer, i.e., a natural person who concludes a legal transaction for purposes that predominantly are neither commercial nor their independent professional activity.

§ 2 Conclusion of Contract

(1) The information in catalogs, advertisements, and websites are non-binding and not an offer from ASCOMP.

(2) The customer's order constitutes an offer to ASCOMP to conclude a purchase contract for the software ordered by the customer. When a customer places an order via the internet or email, they will receive an email from ASCOMP confirming receipt of the order and detailing the order (order confirmation). This order confirmation does not represent acceptance of the customer's offer but merely informs the customer that their order has been received by ASCOMP.

(3) The customer is bound to their order for 14 days from its receipt by ASCOMP.

(4) A purchase contract between ASCOMP and the customer concerning the ordered software is only concluded when ASCOMP accepts the order by sending another email or by telefax or post to the customer (acceptance declaration). ASCOMP reserves the right to accept the offer only for part of the ordered software. No purchase contract is concluded over software not listed in the acceptance declaration or for which no activation key has been transmitted to the customer.

(5) When submitting an offer via the online order form of ASCOMP, the contract text is stored by ASCOMP and sent to the customer along with the present General Terms and Conditions in text form (e.g., email, letter) after the customer has submitted their order. Additionally, the contract text can be accessed by the customer via their password-protected customer account on ASCOMP's website by entering the appropriate login details, provided the customer has set up a customer account in the online shop of ASCOMP before submitting their order.

(6) Before the binding submission of the order via ASCOMP's online order form, the customer can continuously correct their entries using the usual keyboard and mouse functions.

(7) Only German and English languages are available for the conclusion of the contract.

§ 3 Right of Withdrawal for Consumers in Distance Selling Contracts

(1) If the customer is a consumer and has purchased the software from ASCOMP exclusively using distance communication means (for example, by letter, catalog, email, or internet), they are entitled to a right of withdrawal according to the following withdrawal instructions.

(1) The prices stated in catalogs, advertisements, and/or internet pages of ASCOMP apply, which are current at the time of the order. All price details are optionally in USD or Euro and include VAT. Unless otherwise stated, the prices - errors and typographical errors reserved - refer to the software products depicted in the catalogs, advertisements, and the website of ASCOMP according to the corresponding description.

(2) Invoices are due immediately and payable within fourteen days.

§ 9 Warranty

(1) ASCOMP warrants during the legal warranty period that the functionality of the software substantially complies with the software's specifications.

(2) ASCOMP does not guarantee that the software meets the customer's requirements. ASCOMP provides no warranty for technical details or the suitability of the software for a particular purpose unless otherwise determined in the software's specifications. Specifications stated in the software's specifications or other documentation do not constitute guarantees unless they are expressly designated as such.

(3) In the event of a warranty case, ASCOMP will, at its discretion, remedy defects in the software by rectifying errors, providing replacements, updates, or releasing a new version of the software. ASCOMP is entitled to two attempts to remedy the defects. If ASCOMP fails to remedy the defects within a reasonable period of time, the customer is entitled to reduce the remuneration ("reduction"). If it is a significant defect, the customer is also entitled to withdraw from the contract instead of reducing the remuneration.

(4) The customer is not entitled to warranty claims,
- if they do not use the software according to its intended purpose or misuse it, or
- if they modify or alter the software without prior written consent from ASCOMP, or
- if problems or errors are due to the software being used with programs that are incompatible with the software, unless the customer proves that the defect is attributable to the software.

(5) If the customer is entitled to compensation for damages or reimbursement of futile expenses due to warranty, this is subject to the limitation of liability of the following § 10.

(6) If the customer is an entrepreneur within the meaning of § 14 BGB (German Civil Code), the following is agreed for the warranty claims of the customer: Obvious defects must be reported to ASCOMP in writing immediately, at the latest within 14 calendar days after delivery of the goods; hidden defects must also be reported in writing immediately, at the latest within 14 calendar days after they become known. If the defect notification is not made in a timely manner, the warranty rights of the customer relating to the defect not timely reported are excluded.

A "cardinal obligation" in the sense of this provision is an obligation of ASCOMP whose fulfillment enables the proper execution of the contractual relationship between the parties, whose violation endangers the achievement of the purpose of the contract, and on whose compliance the customer regularly relies.

(4) In the event of a breach of an essential contractual primary obligation or cardinal obligation due to simple negligence, ASCOMP's liability is limited to the typically foreseeable damage.
