The same applies to information technology ideas, processes and workflows.
§ 10 Remuneration

indicated. The agreed basic fees are payable in advance in accordance with the contractual agreement and
are due upon receipt of the invoice. Payments by the Customer to the Provider for use within
Internet services or for other products within the system can be made by electronic direct debit, credit card, advance payment and PayPal. In the event of billing via Digifom, Digifom shall be entitled by the Customer to collect the payment to be made by the Customer from an account to be named by the Customer. If the cost of a subscription or an invoice issued is not credited to Digifom's bank account in due time, Digifom shall be entitled to suspend the Customer's access to the Service provided until the agreed payment has been received. This applies in particular to other services provided by Digifom, such as online platforms or individual software. After receipt of the payment, access to the System or the Service provided will be re-enabled. Payments will always be credited against the oldest outstanding debt. The preparation of designs and all other activities that Digifom performs for the Customer shall be subject to a fee, unless expressly agreed otherwise.

Any deviation from the standard software, unless confirmed by Digifom, shall be considered a deviation from the standard software and shall be invoiced according to the actual expenditure. For the development of web projects, a server infrastructure is to be provided by the customer. If this is not available when the order is placed, Digifom will take over the provision of a development environment. The Customer shall bear the usual market costs incurred for this. Changes to the development environment during the period of development (between the initial placing of the order and the acceptance of the initial order or all orders concerned) shall be invoiced separately and according to expenditure.
§ 11 Terms of payment, due date of remuneration
The remuneration is due upon delivery of the work. It is payable without deduction. If the work ordered is accepted in parts
, a corresponding partial remuneration is due upon acceptance of the part. If an order extends over
a longer period of time or if it requires financial advance payments from Digifom, then appropriate payments on account are to be made, namely 50% of the total remuneration when the order is placed, 25% at the middle of the project and 25% after completion of the entire work and online placement. If the work is software and is to be moved from the development server to the customer's own infrastructure before final acceptance, 100% of the remuneration is due immediately.
The final payment is due and payable before the work is moved to a customer's own system. Default occurs with a reminder after the due date, but in any case 30 days after the due date and receipt of an invoice or equivalent request for payment. If the due date is determined by calendar, default occurs as soon as the due date is reached. Unless Digifom can prove that Digifom has suffered greater damage as a result of the delay, interest on arrears shall be payable at a rate of 5% above the respective
base rate in accordance with § 1 of the Discount Rate Transition Act (Diskontsatz-Überleitungs-Gesetz (DÜG)).
Monthly fees are payable by the 10th day of the calendar month for the month in which the services are provided. Digifom reserves the right to change the prices for the ongoing Services, provided that these Services are not provided by Digifom but by a third party company commissioned after written confirmation by the Customer and Digifom is invoiced for such services. Price changes will be announced with reasonable notice. If the Customer does not agree to a price change, the Customer shall have the right to cancel the confirmation of the use of these Services with 10 working days' notice from the date on which the Customer becomes aware of the price increase. If the due date of an order is exceeded from Digifom's point of view, Digifom shall no longer owe the main service and also no longer owe the (customary) services promised in writing.
§ 12 Special and additional
services Special services and additional services which go beyond the contractually agreed framework or the services of Digifom specified in these General Terms and Conditions shall be charged separately according to the time required and in accordance with the prices valid at the time of conclusion of the contract. This includes, for example, increased services such as meetings and telephone calls. These must be shown in detail by Digifom in the invoice. Digifom shall be entitled to order the external services necessary for the fulfilment of the order in the name and for the account of the Customer, provided that the Customer gives his consent. If, in individual cases, contracts for third-party services are concluded in the name and for the account of Digifom, the Customer undertakes to indemnify Digifom internally against all liabilities arising from the contractual relationship and which are necessary for the performance of the services for the Customer. Expenses for ancillary technical costs, in particular for special software extensions, the purchase of software products, the commissioning of external specialists, materials, for the production of photographs, the acquisition of licences for photographs or graphics, intermediate shots, reproductions, typesetting and printing, etc. shall be reimbursed by the Customer, provided that these are purchased by Digifom in advance. An appropriate administration fee for the handling of special services and additional costs shall be reimbursed in full by the Customer. If necessary, Digifom shall pay taxes in the reverse charge procedure when purchasing licences and shall pay any costs incurred, such as capital gains tax for individual licences. The Customer shall bear the costs and taxes incurred for this - even if they were not known at the time of the offer. An introduction to a system developed by Digifom is not an implicit part of any quotation. If training is required, it is offered separately by Digifom and must be ordered by the Customer. The documentation or presentation of project details or descriptions of a solution by Digifom that go beyond the offer, require a written order from the Customer. The preparation of such documentation or presentation shall in any case be remunerated according to the actual expenditure.
§ 13 Confidentiality and data protection
Digifom undertakes to keep confidential all information and documents which are accessible in connection with the conclusion of the contract and which are designated as confidential or are otherwise clearly recognisable as business or trade secrets of the Customer and not to record, pass on or utilise such information or documents unless required to achieve the purpose of the contract. Digifom has made suitable contractual agreements with the employees and/or agents working for it to ensure that they also refrain from any exploitation, disclosure or unauthorised recording of such business and trade secrets.
Such obligations affect the customer with respect to Digifom's business and trade secrets. The customer
agrees that his personal data received within the scope of the business relationship may be stored and automatically processed by computer for the purpose of
processing the business relationship. The customer is hereby informed that Digifom and its agents process your data automatically in accordance with § 33 paragraph 1
of the German Federal Data Protection Act and § 4 of the German Teleservices Data Protection Act (TDDSG). The Customer is entitled at any
time to request from Digifom free of charge the data stored on his person or pseudonym.
Digifom undertakes to use such data solely for the provision of services and not to pass them on to third parties, unless such third parties are involved in the provision of services and the customer has given his prior consent. The Customer shall indemnify Digifom against all claims by third parties regarding data provided by the Customer. Unless otherwise agreed, the customer permits communication by e-mail, SMS and telephone.
Despite all care, computer viruses or the like can be transmitted during communication by e-mail. The customer must take
appropriate precautions to prevent damage to his systems. E-mails and SMS messages can be read by third parties. This risk can be reduced but not completely eliminated by encryption.
§ 14 Liability of the Customer
The Customer shall be liable for all damages and legal consequences incurred by Digifom or its vicarious agents as a result of improper
or unlawful use of the service provided.
§ 15 Limitations of liability
Claims for damages due to breaches of duty arising from contractual obligations and tort may only be asserted
against Digifom and its vicarious agents to the extent that wilful intent or
gross negligence can be proven. The aforementioned exclusion of liability does not apply to the violation of essential
contractual obligations (cardinal obligations). Digifom's liability for warranted
characteristics, personal injury and mandatory statutory provisions shall also remain unaffected. Digifom
shall not be responsible for service disruptions
due to force majeure, in particular the failure or overload of global communication networks. For this reason, the customer cannot claim a reduction in his obligation to perform. Digifom is not liable
for information published via its services. The sender is responsible for their accuracy, completeness and
timeliness. Digifom shall not be liable for any damages incurred by the Customer due to the lack of security precautions during data transmission. A possible liability for damages shall be limited to the amount of the order sum invoiced to date. Liability for damages resulting from loss of data shall be limited to the amount that would have been incurred if the data had been properly backed up, but shall not exceed the amount of the annual fee. The customer's claims for damages shall become statute-barred one year after they arise, notwithstanding the provision of § 202 BGB (German Civil Code). This reduction shall not apply if Digifom has acted with gross negligence or intent.
