EDV-SOLUTIONS is entitled to change the terms and conditions at any time - with effect also for existing contractual relationships. EDV-SOLUTIONS will inform the customer at least 30 days prior to the planned entry into force of the respective change.

In the event that a customer uses the services and services of EDV-SOLUTIONS as a consumer, he expressly declares the waiver of the applicable provisions of the Consumer Protection Act with regard to withdrawal from the contract and cancellation.
A contractual relationship between the contracting parties is concluded when EDV-SOLUTIONS has sent a written order confirmation or a delivery to the customer's last known address after receipt of an order or with the actual provision of services (eg opening of the internet access, establishment a web space, announcement of login data) has begun.

An order whose receipt has not been confirmed is deemed not to have been received. An acceptance of the order of the customer by EDV-SOLUTIONS takes place by sending the countersigned by other written confirmation. However, the mere confirmation of receipt of an order does not constitute acceptance of the order. There is no claim that the order is accepted by EDV-SOLUTIONS.

The same applies to the period in which the contractor waits for cooperation and information from the customer which is required for the delivery or service. EDV-SOLUTIONS undertakes to inform the customer about foreseeable delays - except in case of imminent danger - in an appropriate manner.
If EDV-SOLUTIONS is in default of delivery or performance, it shall be the customer's responsibility to provide EDV-SOLUTIONS with a reasonable grace period for the performance of the service.

Furthermore, the customer will immediately and completely inform EDV-SOLUTIONS of any judicial or extra-judicial claim for other damages resulting from the use of the contractual services. If EDV-SOLUTIONS is called upon by third parties as a result of a behavior (action or omission) of the customer, as far as he is responsible, then the decision to react to it is made solely by the customer, who is responsible for the content (except in the case of gross negligence of EDV-SOLUTIONS) could raise the objection of inadequate legal defense.
