8. PRIMARY OBLIGATIONS OF THE CUSTOMER
(1) During the test phase the Customer shall be obliged to check the general condition and the functionalities of the ACCESS TO SERVICE and to notify Kenjo in text form immediately, at any rate during the test phase and prior to conclusion of the performance contract against payment, of any defects that cancel or otherwise reduce the suitability for contractual use by the Customer.

The Customer will provide Kenjo with the first and last name, e-mail, and a telephone number (contact details) of the contact person and his deputy. If the contact person and/or deputy changes, the Customer is obliged to inform Kenjo immediately and to transmit the new contact data in text form. If the contact person for invoices differs from the aforementioned person, the Customer must state this separately to the same extent and notify any changes accordingly.
9. SECONDARY OBLIGATIONS OF THE CUSTOMER
(1) The Customer is obliged not to store any illegal content that violates laws, official regulations, or the rights of third parties on the storage space provided and to use the ACCESS TO THE SERVICE only in accordance with the contract. The Customer shall notify Kenjo in text form as soon as he/she becomes aware of that.
(2) Notwithstanding Kenjo's obligation to secure data, the client himself is responsible for entering and maintaining the data, software, in particular browsers, and information necessary for the use of the ACCESS TO THE SERVICE.
(3) The client checks his data and information for viruses or other harmful components before entering them. The Client shall use state-of-the-art virus protection programs for this purpose.
(4) The client himself creates a "user ID" and password for access to the use of the ACCESS TO THE SERVICE services. The Client shall keep the "User ID" and password confidential. Access via User ID (e-mail address) and password and/or a so-called "single sign on" from third party providers such as Google and Outlook are only ever used by one of the Client's employees.
(5) The contents stored by the Customer on the storage space intended for him may be protected by copyright and data protection law. The Customer hereby grants Kenjo the right to make the contents stored on the server accessible to the Customer for his queries via the internet and, in particular, to copy and transmit them for this purpose and to be able to reproduce them for the purpose of data backup.
(1) The Customer shall pay Kenjo the agreed monthly fee plus statutory VAT for the provision of ACCESS TO THE SERVICE and the granting of storage space. The fee is due at the beginning of the month, quarter, half-year, year or every two years (advance payment) according to the agreement between the parties. In case of doubt, the remuneration shall be based on Kenjo's price list valid at the time of conclusion or extension of the contract.
(2) In the event that the price class for the provision of ACCESS TO THE SERVICE is increased due to a change in functionality and scope, Kenjo will separately invoice the difference between the previous and the new price class on daily settlement, taking into account the advance payment. Should the parties agree on a reduction of the configuration and scope during the term of the contract, this will not result in a claim for a refund of the balance by the Customer. If the Customer is credited with a credit balance as a result of a contractual amendment, this credit balance will be offset against the subsequent invoice. There is no claim to payment of the credit balance.
(3) Objections to the invoicing of services rendered by Kenjo shall be raised by the Customer in writing to the place indicated on the invoice no later than eight weeks after receipt of the invoice, stating the invoice number and the invoice item.

(1) Kenjo guarantees the functional and operational readiness of the ACCESS TO THE SERVICE according to the provisions of this performance contract. For optimum use, compatible browsers are to be used in accordance with the documentation in the help center.
(2) The strict liability for initial material defects (§ 536a paragraph 1, 1st alternative BGB) is excluded.
(3) Claims for damages against Kenjo are excluded regardless of the legal grounds, unless Kenjo, its legal representatives or vicarious agents have acted with intent or gross negligence. Kenjo shall only be liable for slight negligence if one of the essential contractual obligations has been violated by Kenjo, its legal representatives or executives or vicarious agents. Kenjo shall only be liable for foreseeable damages, the occurrence of which must typically be expected. Essential contractual obligations are those obligations which form the basis of the contract, which were decisive for the conclusion of the contract and on whose fulfilment the Customer may rely. Kenjo is not liable for the loss of data insofar as the damage is due to the fact that the Customer has failed to carry out data backups and thereby ensure that lost data can be restored with reasonable effort.
(4) Kenjo shall have unlimited liability for damages caused intentionally or negligently by Kenjo, its legal representatives or vicarious agents due to injury to life, body, or health.
12. TERM; TERMINATION
(1) The contractual relationship against payment begins with the acceptance of the offer by the Customer. The performance contract against payment shall be concluded for a contractual period of one year unless the parties agree otherwise. The performance contract shall be extended by a further year in each case unless one of the parties terminates the contract 8 weeks before the end of the contract period.
(2) The right of each party to the contract to terminate the contract without notice for good cause remains unaffected. Kenjo is particularly entitled to terminate the contract without notice if the Customer does not make due payments despite reminders and setting of a grace period or if he violates the contractual provisions regarding the use of the ACCESS TO THE SERVICE. A termination without notice in any case requires that the other party has been warned in writing and requested to eliminate the alleged reason for termination without notice within a reasonable period of time.
(1) The contracting parties agree that the contract for commissioned data processing attached as Annex 1 shall also become an integral part of the performance contract, in particular the object and duration of the processing, the type and purpose of the processing, the type of personal data, the categories of data subjects and the obligations and rights of the Customer existing within the scope of commissioned data processing shall be specified.
(2) The parties undertake to maintain secrecy about all information to be treated confidentially which they have come to know in connection with this contractual relationship and not to use this information either directly or indirectly for their own or third party purposes. The same applies to business or trade secrets of third parties which become known or have become known to Kenjo in connection with the contractual relationship with the Customer. Kenjo will also impose this obligation of secrecy on all persons who are employed as vicarious agents to this contract.
(3) The information to be treated confidentially includes in particular the information that has been expressly designated as confidential by the respective party providing the information, as well as all other information whose confidentiality results from the special circumstances of the transfer, including in particular business and company secrets as well as Customer and personnel data. Information which is not to be treated as confidential includes information which
(4) The obligations pursuant to § 13 (2) shall continue to exist indefinitely beyond the end of the contract. The obligation shall not apply if information is to be qualified as information that is no longer to be treated as confidential.
14. APPLICABLE LAW, PLACE OF JURISDICTION, LANGUAGE OF CONTRACT
(1) This contract shall be governed by German law to the exclusion of the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods unless the parties individually agree otherwise.

At the same time, the Customer will be expressly informed that the respective change will become part of the contract existing between the contracting parties, if the Customer does not object to this change within a period of six weeks from notification of the change by e-mail or in writing.
(2) Should a provision of these GTCs be or become invalid, this shall not affect the validity of the remaining GTCs. The invalid provision shall be deemed replaced by a valid provision that comes closest to the economic purpose of the invalid provision. The same applies in the event of a contractual loophole.
(3) Annexes referred to in these GTCs shall become an integral part of the performance contract.
