However, the Provider is always entitled to reject the order within three (3) business days at the latest, if an incorrect choice of variants was made or the information was added incorrectly; in such case, the Contract is made void.

2.5. In case the Customer´s order contained any amendments or modifications, even if not substantially changing the offer conditions (or the GTC), it is not the acceptance of the offer and the conclusion of the Contract, unless:

if the respective issue is not regulated by the GTC, or if it is regulated differently in the GTC, the regulation resulting from the Customer´s order will be applied, i.e. including the amendments and modifications;
however, by way of derogation from the previous letter (a), the GTC will take precedence in the following issues:

(2) the scope of the licence to the Application and to the Products being provided to the Customer according to the Contract, particularly with regard to the prohibition of unauthorized distribution of the Products or their content;
(3) the extent of the Provider´s liability for damage resulting from breaching the Contract;

2.8. The GTC are considered to be an integral part of the Contract also in case the Contract was concluded in writing in another manner, if the text of the Contract refers to these GTC or if they are attached to the Contract.
2.9. A similar manner as described above applies also to concluding the amendments to the Contract when the Provider sends a draft of the amendment instead of an offer and the Customer sends a confirmation of accepting such a draft. This is without prejudice to other manners of amending the Contract, if it results from the legal regulations or these GTC.
2.10. The Provider makes reasonable efforts to comply with the Customer´s request for extending the scope of the users authorized to access the Application compared to the scope given in the Contract. The increase of the number of users is effective as at the date of making the amendment to the Contract or also with the retroactive effect, if the amendment sets out so.
3. Subject Matter of the Contract
3.1. By entering into the Contract the Provider undertakes to:
grant to the Customer and the users on the Customer´s part access to the Application together with the right to use this Application in the scope, manner and for the purposes arising from the GTC and the Contract;

provide the Customer and its users with technical support in compliance with the GTC and the Contract (the “Services").

provide the Provider with the necessary assistance for providing the Services;
observe the conditions of access to the Application and the conditions of using the Products and cause by due instructing the users of the Application that they will comply with these conditions;
pay to the Provider the agreed price for the Services provided unless the subject matter of the Contract is the trial access to the Application.
3.3. If the trial access to the Application is the subject matter of the Contract, with the exception of the obligation to make payment, the Customer´s obligations according to the GTC remain unaffected thereby.
4. Place and Time of Performance
4.1. After entering into the Contract, the Provider will send to the Customer, to the provided electronic or other contact, the access data to the Application for the single users on the Customer´s part, possibly for the Customer´s administrator, and commence providing the Services.
4.2. If appointed, the Administrator is authorized to establish access accounts to other users on the Customer´s part for using the Application, however, for the maximum number set out in the Contract (such a number includes also the Administrator).
4.3. The periodicity of updating the content and making the new outputs of the individual Products accessible as well as their historical re-accessibility is given in the description of each of the Products given in the Application.
4.4. The periodicity of sending the notifications to the users is determined by the Provider; however, it may be modified by the Customer or its users in the Application. Within the guarantee of availability of the Application the Provider is not liable for delivering the email notification to individual users.
4.5. The Contract is concluded for a definite period of time of 12 months, unless another time period of the Service prepayment is stated in the Contract.
4.6. If the parties agree in the Contract on an automatic renewal of the Contract, such a renewal and extension of the effect of the Contract will proceed as follows. If one party to the Contract does not notify the other party to the Contract in writing at least 21 days in advance of its intention not to renew the Contract, the duration of the Contract is renewed automatically, i.e. it is extended by the definite period of the same length as the original duration of the Contract. Such a renewal will take place repeatedly unless the effect of the Contract is terminated in another way or a timely notification of the intention not to renew the Contract is made by any of the parties. If the Remuneration is agreed to be paid with an appropriate payment or credit card (over the GoPay payment gateway), the Contract is renewed on a monthly basis. Once the first payment is made this way, the next repeated monthly payments and the Contract renewal take place automatically unless the repeated payments, and thus the Contract, are cancelled prior to the execution of the repeated payment at the latest. The Customer will cancel the repeated payment in the GoPay environment in accordance with the instructions received upon establishment of the repeated payment, or the cancellation may be made by sending an email to the Provider no later than three (3) business days before the Contract renewal. This will terminate the Contract’s effectiveness and cancel access to the Customer’s Application as on the last day of the last prepaid period. The Contract is terminated also in case that the repeated payment cannot be executed for reasons on the part of the Customer (an invalid card, etc.).
4.7. The Provider will advise the Customer of the on-coming expiration of the Contract duration at least one (1) month in advance; it does not apply to the Contracts concluded for the period of three (3) months or shorter. If the automatic renewal of the Contract was not agreed and the Provider sends to the Customer an advance invoice for the performance for the period after the termination of the agreed effect of the Contract and the Customer will pay such an invoice in time, the effect of the Contract will be extended by the original duration of the Contract. Failing to pay the advance invoice does not extend the Contract and does not mean a delay of the Customer.

5. Price and Method of Payment for the Services

The Remuneration for the Provider´s technical support provided, if provided in excess of the scope being provided according to the Contract free of charge, depends on the number of man-hours consumed in providing technical support and on the rate of the remuneration for one man-hour stated in the offer.

5.8. The tax document becomes due and payable in fourteen (14) days.
