Section 1 – Scope
- These General Software Licensing Conditions apply to the use, for a limited period of time, of “Online game services and score analytics” software products (in the following as software products) belonging to Scolia Technologies Ltd. (hereinafter: “SCOLIA”) by the Licensee, who is a legal person.
- The General Software Licensing Conditions also apply, as amended, (most recent version available at https://scoliadarts.com) to pre-contractual obligations and future contracts of a similar type governing the use of software products with the same license number for a limited period of time, without the need for SCOLIA to refer to them again in each individual case.
- Solely these General Software Licensing Conditions apply. Deviating, contrary or supplementary general terms and conditions of trade on the part of the Licensee will only become an integral part of the contract if and to the extent that SCOLIA has expressly agreed to their validity. This approval requirement applies in all cases – for example even if SCOLIA makes the delivery to the Licensee without reservation, in full knowledge of the latter’s terms and conditions of trade.
Section 2 – Conclusion of a contract
- Offers made by SCOLIA are non-binding and subject to confirmation.
- By ordering the software, the Licensee is making a binding offer to enter into a contract. Unless stated otherwise in the order, SCOLIA is entitled to accept this offer to enter into a contract within four weeks of its receipt.
- The order is accepted by means of a written confirmation of the order, or by notifying the Licensee of the access data for logging in.
Section 3 – Object of the contract
- The scope, type and quality of the software are determined by the contents of the order confirmation or invoice, where the delivery was made without prior confirmation. Any other specifications or requirements will only become an integral part of the contract if the parties agree this in writing or if SCOLIA has confirmed this in writing.
- SCOLIA hereby allows the Licensee to use, for a limited period of time, the software designated in its order confirmation or invoice and grants the Licensee the necessary rights for the contractual use of this software in accordance with Section 4.
- SCOLIA will make the software available to the Licensee for use via a server. SCOLIA will notify the Licensee of the access data for logging into the protected area.
- SCOLIA reserves the right to enhance or change the software at any time.
Section 4 – Granting of rights
- The software (specific algorithms and data content) is protected by law. The copyright, patent rights, trademark rights and all other ancillary rights to the software, and to any other objects that SCOLIA gives or makes available to the Licensee as part of the contract’s initiation and execution, belong exclusively to SCOLIA, provided that SCOLIA is the holder of these rights.
- The Licensee is only entitled to use the software to process the Licensee’s own data in his/her own institution for his/her own purposes. ‘Own institution’ means the establishment of the Licensee. SCOLIA will grant the Purchaser the necessary authority for this use in the form of a non- exclusive, non-assignable right of use that is limited in time to the term of the licensing agreement. No additional use by third parties is permissible unless SCOLIA has given its express, written consent.
- The access data for logging in that was provided to the Licensee must not be passed on to any third parties. In particular, the Licensee is not permitted to sell, lend, or hire out the software or to sub- license it in any other way, or to communicate the software to the public or make it publicly available.
Section 5 – Delivery/performance
The delivery/performance is effected at SCOLIA’s registered office, which is also the place of fulfillment.
Section 6 – Prices and terms of payment
- Unless otherwise agreed in individual cases, SCOLIA’s current prices at the time of the contract’s conclusion shall apply, plus the applicable statutory value added tax.
- Any customs duties, charges, taxes or other public dues will be borne by the Licensee. Each party will bear their own banking charges.
Section 7 – Term and termination
- The contract is concluded from the order confirmation or purchase invoice.
- Any termination must be made in writing.
- All of the Licensee’s analytical data will be deleted 30 days after the license’s expiration.
Section 8 – Defect claims
- The statutory provisions apply with regard to the rights of the Licensee in the event of material defects and defects in title, unless otherwise specified below.
- The software is suitable for use in accordance with the contract. It fulfills the criterion of practical suitability and is of standard quality for software of this type. Software errors are technically unavoidable. A functional impairment of the program resulting from hardware defects, environmental conditions, operating errors or similar causes is not a software defect. Negligible reductions in quality will not be taken into account.
- If the software provided is defective, SCOLIA will remedy the defect within a reasonable time period. The Licensee will help SCOLIA to analyze and remedy the defect by giving a precise description of any problems that occur and providing SCOLIA with comprehensive information.
- The Licensee is entitled to claim compensation for damages or for the reimbursement of expenses incurred in vain only in accordance with Section 9; all other claims are excluded.
Section 9 – Liability
- SCOLIA will be liable to pay compensation – regardless of the legal basis – in cases of intent or gross negligence. In cases of ordinary negligence, SCOLIA will be liable only
- a) for damages due to loss of life, bodily injury or damage to health or, where claims are brought under the EU Product Liability Directive (85/374/EEC),
- b) for damages due to the violation of a material contractual obligation (obligations, whose fulfillment is a prerequisite for the proper fulfillment of the contract and on whose observance the other party to the contract can reasonably expect to be able to rely); in this event, SCOLIA’s liability will be limited to compensation for any foreseeable, typically occurring damages however. Compensation for consequential damage – i.e. damage that is not rectified by the remedial action undertaken and is sustained by assets other than the goods in question, e.g. an operational failure caused by the defect – is excluded.
- SCOLIA is not liable for initial defects, except where the conditions set out in sub-section (1) are given.
- SCOLIA assumes no liability for data losses on the part of the Licensee.
Section 10 -Non-disclosure
- The parties to this contract mutually undertake to treat as confidential – even after this contract has come to an end – all information made available to them prior to or during the execution of the contract (whether in writing, orally or in any other manner and whether directly or indirectly) – particularly information of a technical, commercial or financial type and including all documents and know-how. They also undertake to refrain from passing on such information to third parties and from making it accessible in any other form, to take all necessary precautions to prevent third parties accessing this information and to make it accessible only to those employees and/or representatives or contractors who have likewise undertaken to adhere to the above-mentioned confidentiality requirement, even after leaving their employment, provided that the information is flagged as “confidential” or described as “confidential” when conveyed orally, and unless the information in question was common knowledge before its disclosure or becomes common knowledge after its disclosure through no fault of the receiving party, or the information was already in the possession of the receiving party before its disclosure, or was or is lawfully obtained from a third party without restriction, or if the disclosing party has waived this nondisclosure obligation in writing.
- SCOLIA will process the personal data required for executing the business transaction in compliance with the data protection regulations. After the successful delivery of the service/product, SCOLIA may cite the Licensee as a reference customer.
Section 11 – Choice of law and jurisdiction
- These General Software Licensing Conditions and all legal relations between SCOLIA and the Licensee are subject to the laws of Hungary, to the exclusion of all international and supranational (contractual) legislation.
- If the Licensee is a merchant, the sole – and international – place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising directly or indirectly out of this contractual relationship is SCOLIA’s registered place of business in Szeged, Hungary.
Section 12 – Final provisions
- Should one of the provisions of these General Software Licensing Conditions prove to be invalid, this will not affect the validity of the remaining conditions or agreements. Instead of the invalid provision, whichever provision most closely approximates the economic spirit and purpose of the invalid provision will be deemed to be agreed.
- SCOLIA retains the right to change, amend or modify any of the provisions of these General Software Licensing Conditions at any time. Provisions not affected by the changes or amendments remain in effect.
