End-User License Agreement (EULA)
Last updated: June 4, 2020
This end user license agreement (EULA) forms the basis for the user agreement between you as a user (hereinafter "user" or "you") and Smart Industries GmbH (hereinafter called "zoolo" or "we") as the provider. The version of the EULA valid at the time the contract is concluded is decisive. The subject of the contract is the free or paid use of the zoolo software, which is made available as a web application (hereinafter "software").
The EULA applies to the entire business relationship between zoolo and you and can be viewed on our website at any time using the "Terms & Conditions" link. There you have the option to save or print out the EULA. We do not accept deviating conditions. This also applies if we do not expressly contradict the inclusion.
2. Registration and conclusion of contract
In order to be able to use the software, you must register with your e-mail address, your name and your organization and consent to this EULA and the data protection declaration.
By submitting the registration form, you are submitting a binding offer to conclude a contract for the use of the software. The usage contract between us and you comes into being when we accept your offer by means of a confirmation email. We expressly reserve the right to reject your offer without giving reasons.
With the successful registration you will receive a user account. You are obliged to treat your password confidentially and to ensure with the necessary care that third parties do not have access to it. Passing on access to third parties is expressly prohibited. You are solely responsible for ensuring that your access data is not used unlawfully by third parties. As soon as you suspect that your access data has been lost, stolen or in any other way it appears that your account has been used by third parties, you are obliged to inform us immediately and change your password.
While using the software as a web application, you are always logged in permanently until you actively log out using logout or the relevant browser cookies are deleted. You are aware that there is a general risk that third parties can access your account and all of the personal data stored in it, provided they have a registered device. You are also aware that a registered device may exchange data in the background even without its active use, which can use and possibly affect your data volume. We therefore recommend that you actively log out after each use.
3. Description of services and rights of use
The type and scope of the services available to you and their availability can be found on our website and the software at any time. An essential part of the software's service is the creation, administration and maintenance of databases. Among other things, you can create databases, enter and evaluate data and export them to other formats. The right to authorize third parties to use the databases as well as the extent of the storage space and the number of databases is limited to the extent selected when the contract was concluded.
By successfully registering and/or acquiring access to the software offered by partner companies, you receive the simple, spatially unlimited and non-transferable right to use the software appropriately. Any further uses require our express written consent. This applies in particular to the reproduction, distribution, processing or sublicensing of the software.
Insofar as we also provide the software free of charge in addition to offers that are subject to a charge, this is always subject to any unannounced changes and/or discontinuation at any time or provision that will only be possible in the future for a separate fee. In addition, we assume no responsibility for completeness and/or correctness for any software offered free of charge, unless we are responsible for the error intentionally or with gross negligence or fraudulently concealed it.
zoolo always ensures the highest possible availability of the software. Nevertheless, it may be necessary for maintenance purposes to temporarily suspend the availability of the software. If possible, we will inform you in advance of maintenance time windows and arrange these in such a way that the impairments are as minimal as possible.

5. Duration and termination
The license agreement begins with the registration (§ 2 Paragraph 1) and is limited to 14 days for a free version of the software. A limitation of the term for a paid version of the software results from the commercial conditions of our partner companies, to which reference is made with regard to the term and termination conditions and which have priority in this respect.
The termination of the free version must be made in text form. The access at zoolo is decisive for the expiry of the deadline.
The right to extraordinary termination remains unaffected. In particular, we are entitled to terminate the user contract with immediate effect if you violate the provisions of this EULA in a significant manner.
