General Terms and Conditions
1. Area of application
The General Terms and Conditions (“GTC”) determine the contractual framework conditions between the parties Ledavio KIG (“Ledavio”) and a partner of Ledavio (“Customer”) in connection with the provided online software (Software-as a-Service).
By creating an Ledavio account, using the services or continuing to use the services after being informed of a change in the GTC, the customer accepts the currently valid version of the terms as an integral part of all existing and/or future contractual agreements between the customer and Ledavio unchanged and in full. Since Ledavio does not store a copy for the customer, he should read and print out these terms and conditions and keep a copy for his own records. The GTC shall also apply irrespective of whether they are or are not expressly referred to.
A detailed description of the services to be provided by Ledavio can be found in the selected plan (“pricing/plans“), which can be found on www.ledavio.design.
To be valid, any deviations and/or additions to these general terms and conditions require the written consent of Ledavio. Any such divergent agreements apply only to the agreement that contains the divergent agreement and have no negative effects on other agreements between the parties.
The customer’s general terms and conditions are hereby expressly rejected. They are not applicable to the contractual relationship between Ledavio and the customer.
