3.3 The contract is concluded upon receipt of the order confirmation by the customer in response to the customer’s order. The term of the contract shall not commence until the customer’s access (account) has been activated.

The obligation to the truthful information concerns in particular the information to the company, to first name and surname, to street and house number, to postcode, place and country, to telephone and e-mail address as well as to the bank data, as far as these are relevant for the direct debit authorisation. If the customer offends against the obligation to the truthful explanation, adlerhost. is entitled to terminate the contractual relation including the domain with immediate effect.

4.2 Changes concerning the data declared by the customer will be corrected or updated by the customer immediately. The customer is obligated to keep his e-mail address indicated to adlerhost. in the order mask up to date and to call regularly e-mail inboxes of adlerhost.

4.3 The customer usually already receives a user name and a password with the order confirmation, i.e. letter and/or number sequences or special characters which serve the purpose to exclude the use by unauthorized persons in order to dial into the customer administration system (KAS), the MembersArea and into his webmail program provided by adlerhost. User names and password have to be kept protected from unauthorised access by third parties. For security reasons they have to be changed in regular intervals. In digital media, the customer may only store user names and passwords in encrypted form.

4.4 If a password is entered incorrectly several times, this may result in the blocking of the usage options to which the password applies for the protection of the customer.

If this offer should be rejected by the customer, adlerhost. is entitled to terminate the contractual relationship with a period of notice of two weeks to the end of a calendar month.

4.7 The customer has to ensure – in particular if shared servers are used – that the internet presences or data of other customers of adlerhost., the server stability, server performance or server availability are not affected contrary to the contractually assumed use.

Only in exceptional cases or in cases of legal obligation adlerhost. Texts in writing and addresses these to the address of the customer mentioned to him. The customer is obliged to deposit exclusively valid e-mail addresses to adlerhost. under which the customer can receive electronic mail and to retrieve this mail regularly.

4.9 For important reason adlerhost. can require from the customer that he uses the e-mail address of adlerhost. or another e-mail provider for purposes of the communication, in particular the support and the sending of invoices, than the one which the customer has indicated with his order or has deposited in the consequence.

5 Responsibility of the customer for the domain and information

5.1 The customer is responsible according to the general laws for the domain itself as well as for all contents which the customer keeps accessible or stores on the web server (information, i.e. data, graphics, pictures, pieces of music, videos or other information which are accessible or distributed via the technologies provided by adlerhost). The same is valid for actions of use on the web servers which the customer has caused.

5.2 In the event that the customer’s Internet presence constitutes a telemedia service, the customer shall continue to fulfil the information obligations which the law imposes on a provider of electronic information and communication services and telecommunication services.

6.3 The customer is not allowed to sublease services, unless he is a reseller authorised by adlerhost.

6.4 The customer is obliged to keep his systems and programs on the servers of adlerhost, which he shares with other customers according to agreement (shared server) in such a way that neither the security, the integrity nor the availability of the networks, servers and software which adlerhost. uses for the supply of her services is impaired. adlerhost. is entitled to block the access of the customer or third or to regulate if his networks, servers and software act or react deviant from the regular operating behaviour and the security, the integrity or the availability of the systems of adlerhost. is impaired by it.

7.2 adlerhost. can restrict the access to the services if the security of the network operation, the maintenance of the network integrity, in particular the avoidance of serious disturbances of the network, the software or stored data require this.

8. Terms of payment

8.1 If not agreed differently, services of adlerhost. become due for payment after service provision and handing over of an invoice.

8.2 For achievements of the hosting or the domain service the following is agreed:

8.2.1 For achievements of the hosting or the domain service the customer determines with his order the payment due date himself by choosing a prepayment period (1 month, 3, 6, 12, 24, 36 months). Customers who are not domiciled in Germany can only choose between 12, 24 or 36 monthly prepayments.

8.2.2 The pre-payment becomes due as soon as the order of the customer has been accepted by adlerhost. by the order confirmation, not, however, before the customer has received the access data for the server or the servers. The activation of the customer access (account) furnished for the customer can make adlerhost. dependent on the receipt of payment.

8.2.3 SEPA-mandate: The customer authorises adlerhost. in the context of his order for the tariff wished by him and for the wished pre-payment period to collect the respective amount of the demand of adlerhost. due from the customer’s account by direct debit (direct debit authorisation/ SEPA-mandate). The “mandate” is the consent of the payer (the customer of adlerhost.) towards the payee (adlerhost.) to collect due receivables by direct debit and the instruction to his payment service provider (paying agent, the customer’s bank) to redeem by debiting his payment account. The direct debit is initiated by the payee (adlerhost.). The announcement of the collection (advance information / “prenotification”) takes place at the latest 5 working days before assertion of the debit note, as a rule with the invoice. The collection by adlerhost. takes place at the earliest 5 working days after invoice date. The invoice is announced to the customer by e-mail to the address deposited by him or in his personal configuration menu or in other agreed way and can be called there by him. The customer shall ensure that there are sufficient funds in the account specified so that the amounts due can be collected.

8.2.4 The customer shall receive an invoice or calculation of the agreed and due remuneration in electronic form as a PDF document. Entrepreneur Clients shall receive an invoice issued in accordance with the tax regulations by post upon express request. The customer is not entitled to a digitally signed invoice (§ 14 para. 3 UStG).

8.2.5 In case of the default of the customer with his due payment obligations adlerhost. is entitled to block the access of the customer to the storage media provided by adlerhost. adlerhost. will point out this consequence of his default of payment to the customer in a reminder which will be sent by e-mail to the e-mail address last named by the customer. If the reminder by e-mail is not deliverable, adlerhost. is entitled to block the access immediately provisionally. In the delay of the customer the payment obligation of the customer continues despite blocked access.

9. Blocking

9.1 adlerhost. will make use of the technical possibility of the blockage of the access of the customer to the provided services only in necessary exceptional cases and will always consider the justified interests of the customer. If adlerhost. carries out a blockage, adlerhost. is entitled to the blockage of all contractual services and performances if necessary. The choice of the blocking measure lies in this respect in the discretion of adlerhost. As far as a registered domain is the reason for the blockage, adlerhost. is entitled to give the domain of the customer into the administration of the registration authority.

9.2 By a justified blocking of adlerhost. the customer is not released from his obligation to pay the agreed fees.

9.3 If adlerhost. If adlerhost. receives warnings, reminders or admonitions from third party, which contain the credible assertion of law breakings, adlerhost. is entitled to block the access of third parties to the complained information, from which the injury proceeds, without further legal examination, if the customer does not prove immediately opposite adlerhost. that a law breaking does not exist or adlerhost. is released by the customer – if necessary with performance of a security – from the consequences of a claim by third parties. To a legal advice towards the customer adlerhost. is not obliged.

9.4 adlerhost. fulfils his duties of notification for the preparation or defence and execution of the block if he sends the respective notifications about this by e-mail to the e-mail address given by the customer. It is a matter of the customer to guarantee the retrievability of the e-mail address named by him.

9.5 adlerhost. can make the cancellation of the blocking dependent on the fact that the customer removes the illegal state demonstrably and has delivered a cease-and-desist declaration to adlerhost. for the exclusion of a repetition danger reinforced by contractual penalty as well as has carried out security for the payment of a contractual penalty possibly resulting from it in the future. The height of the security corresponds in this respect to the height of expected costs of adlerhost. for the case of a claim of third party. The height of the contract-penalty-promise orients itself at that at the meaning of the offence.

9.6 As far as adlerhost. is taken up by third or by state authorities because of a behaviour which entitles adlerhost. to the blockage, the customer commits himself to exempt the supplier from all claims and to carry those costs which have arisen by the claim or removal of the illegal state. This includes in particular the necessary legal defence costs of the Provider.

10 Return of the storage space

10.1 To the day of the termination of the contract the customer is obliged to the deletion or to the release of the storage space left to him (the latter to the deletion by adlerhost.).

11.2 adlerhost. reserves the right to grant a request of a customer for a change of the provider (KK-application) only if all undisputed open claims of adlerhost. existing towards the customer are settled.

12 Liability

12.1 A liability of adlerhost. – equal from which legal ground – exists exclusively within the scope of the following regulations.

12.2 Unlimited liability: adlerhost. is liable for intention and gross negligence. For slight negligence adlerhost. is liable according to the product liability law due to the telecommunication law as well as for damages from the injury of the life, the body or the health of persons.

12.3 Limitation of liability: adlerhost. is liable in case of slight negligence in all other respects only in case of the injury of an essential contractual obligation whose fulfilment makes the proper execution of the contract at all possible and on whose observance the contracting partner may trust regularly (cardinal obligation). This limitation of liability also applies in favour of the vicarious agents of adlerhost.

12.4 The liability without fault of adlerhost. for compensation for defects existing at the conclusion of the contract (§ 536a BGB) is excluded.

13. contract term, cancellation, termination of the contract

13.1 If not agreed differently, the contract is concluded for an indefinite time.

13.2 For hosting or domain services, the customer shall determine a prepayment period (1 month, 3, 6, 12, 24, 36 months) with his order. Customers who are not domiciled in Germany can only choose between 12, 24 or 36-month prepayment.

13.3 The aforementioned prepayment period begins on the exact day of receipt of the order confirmation, but not before the activation of the customer’s access. The expiry of the prepayment period chosen by the customer is stated in the invoice. The calculation shall be made on the basis of banking days spread over the year.

13.4 If the prepayment period selected by the customer in accordance with 13.2 and notified to the customer in accordance with 13.3 ends without the customer having terminated the contract, the prepayment period selected by the customer at the time of conclusion of the contract shall begin again upon expiry of the prepayment period selected by the customer, unless the customer selects a different prepayment period in the MembersArea before expiry.

13.5 During the prepayment period selected by the customer, the customer may terminate the contract at any time in accordance with the following provisions.

13.5.1 The ordinary termination of the contract for hosting or domain services by the customer can only be done via the MembersArea – online – to which adlerhost. has to grant the customer access at any time. Precondition for this termination by the customer is that the domains to his contract are closed by him (“Close”) or are moved by his instigation to another provider by means of connectivity coordination (“KK”). adlerhost. participates in the closing of the domain respectively in the moving of the domain. Without “Close” or “KK” a proper online termination is technically not possible and ineffective. The customer will be instructed in the MembersArea or in the Q&A of the website accordingly, how he can terminate properly according to the contract.

13.5.2 The customer is not entitled to a refund of the “unused” prepayments from the time of the effectiveness of his termination until the expiry of the prepayment period chosen by him.

13.5.3 The Customer shall also not be entitled to a refund of any prepayments which become due in accordance with the prepayment period chosen by the Customer after notice of termination has been given in accordance with Clause 13.5.1 because the notice of termination has not been validly given in accordance with Clause 13.5.1 at least seven calendar days before the expiry of the current prepayment period. The expiry of the prepayment period chosen by the customer can be found in the last invoice. The customer is therefore required to bring about the conditions for termination in good time so that the extension of the contract and the due date of a new prepayment do not occur.

13.5.4 The online termination in accordance with the previous provision shall result in the immediate deletion of all data (in particular the e-mail accounts) of the customer on the storage space provided for him. The customer shall ensure that data is backed up in good time on his own storage media.

13.6 The ordinary termination of the contract to hosting or domain services by adlerhost. in text form is permitted to the end of a current calendar month with a notice period of 20 calendar days.

13.6.1 In case of an ordinary termination by adlerhost. adlerhost. has to reimburse the customer for not used advance payments.

13.6.2 In case of an ordinary termination by adlerhost. the customer has to cooperate accordingly with the “Close” or “KK” regarding the domains held by him and has to delete or release the storage space for deletion at the end of the day on which the termination becomes effective, otherwise adlerhost. is authorised to delete.

13.7 The right to the extraordinary cancellation of the contract to hosting or domain services remains reserved to the parties. For the extraordinary termination at least text form (e.g. by e-mail) is agreed. Extraordinary termination for good cause shall be deemed to have occurred in particular if

13.7.1 if the customer is more than 1 month in arrears with a due payment, or

13.7.2 the customer culpably violates a contractual obligation despite a warning, or

13.7.3 the customer does not eliminate a contract or right injury within adequate period, in particular the customer holds ready illegal information on his storage space to the call or to the use although he was pointed out to this circumstance by third or by adlerhost.

13.7.4 A warning is dispensable if it concerns an obligation injury which makes a continuation of the contract for adlerhost. unreasonable, in particular because adlerhost. would be liable because of this obligation injury also opposite third.

13.7.5 In case of an extraordinary termination of the contract to hosting or domain services both parties must cooperate with the “Close” or “KK” concerning the domains held by customers and the customer must delete or release the storage space for deletion at the end of the day on which the termination becomes effective, otherwise adlerhost. is authorised to delete.

13.7.6 In case of an effective extraordinary termination of the contract for hosting or domain services by adlerhost. adlerhost. is entitled to payment of the fee for the prepayment period chosen by the customer, as far as the customer is responsible for the reason for the termination. As far as adlerhost. is responsible for the reason for the extraordinary termination, adlerhost. has to refund the customer unused prepayments.

13.8 If there is no explanation or action by the customer after an appropriate appropriate period of time has been set by adlerhost., what should happen with regard to the domain names after termination, adlerhost. will stop the support of the domain name registered for the customer at the responsible registry after the expiration of the period of time – at the earliest on the day of the expiration of the contract. adlerhost. will inform the responsible registry about this immediately. This can follow to the deletion of the domain name by the registration authority.

13.9 If there is no explanation or action by the customer after appropriate appropriate period setting by adlerhost. what should happen in relation to storage space still occupied by him after the cancellation, adlerhost. will delete the storage space after period expiry – at the earliest to the day of the expiry of the pre-payment period.

13.10 As far as not the whole contract to hosting or domain services is cancelled, but only the cancellation of a domain/several domains/all domains takes place, the contract continues to exist in all other respects.

14 Data protection

About the collection, processing and use of personal data adlerhost. informs the customer separately.

15. applicable right, legal venue, inefficacy

15.1 For the contracts concluded by adlerhost. on the basis of these terms and conditions and for the claims resulting from it, no matter which kind, the right of the Federal Republic of Germany applies exclusively. For the case of the conclusion of contracts with consumers who do not have their seat in Germany, the compelling consumer-protective regulations of the right of the consumers in their respective home country which is valid for their seat remain untouched by sentence 1.

15.2 Place of jurisdiction for all claims resulting from the contractual relations between the contracting parties, in particular about the conclusion, the winding up or the termination of the contract is – as far as the customer is a registered trader, legal entity of the public right or public-legal special property – the seat of adlerhost.

2.2.1 The following technical steps lead to the conclusion of the contract: The customer chooses a product/ a tariff described on the website. The “Order” window opens with various tabs for data entry. The last tab is “Order overview”.

The acceptance of the contract offer (“order confirmation”) by adlerhost. takes place by means of an e-mail. With entrance of the order confirmation with the customer the contract has come about.

2.2.2. access to the contract text: adlerhost. does not create an actual contract text any more.
