MEETYOO will, at its own discretion and at its own expense, 1. procure for the customer the right to use the service or 2. make the Services non-infringing or 3. take back the Services with reimbursement of the remuneration paid for it by the customer (less reasonable compensation for use) if MEETYOO cannot achieve any other remedy with reasonable effort. Customer shall indemnify and hold harmless MEETYOO for any third party claims in connection with this provision. MEETYOO and, if applicable, its subcontractors shall be entitled, but not obliged, to the extent permissible, to defend the asserted claims at their expense.

TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY CUSTOMER’S LOCAL LAW, MEETYOO DISCLAIMS ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES INCLUDING FOR NON-INFRINGEMENT, MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND SATISFACTORY QUALITY.

2. MEETYOO is liable for damages arising from injury to life, body or health in accordance with the statutory provisions.

6. MEETYOO is not liable for such damages which can be excluded if the customer carries out a proper data backup, or damages due to system failure or malfunction or loss of profits, data, use, business or good-will, arising out or in connection with the Services, these GTC, or customer’s misuse of the Services or any Content available on or through the Services.

7. MEETYOO is not liable for the compatibility of its Services with technical equipment including Technical Infrastructures for which the customer is responsible (section 3.1). 

§16 Limitation of liability

1. In the event customer has any basis for recovering damages arising from the Services or a breach of these GTC, for each individual case of damage, customer agrees that customer’s exclusive remedy is to recover from MEETYOO the direct damages and the maximum liability shall be limited to the contract value, in the case of ongoing remuneration to the amount of remuneration per contract year.

2. The Contract may be terminated by the other party without notice for good cause if an application for the opening of insolvency or composition proceedings has been filed against the assets of the party.

3. Provisions 9, 11, 13 – 21, and those provisions which by their nature are meant to survive shall survive the termination or expiration of these GTC. 

§ 18 Assignment

These GTC may not be assigned by either party without the written consent of the other. 

§ 19 Written form

All amendments and additions to contractual agreements must be made in writing. This also applies to the cancellation or amendment of the written form requirement.

The law of the State of New York, excluding its conflicts of law rules, shall apply to these GTC. Customer further expressly and irrevocably consents and agrees to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of a state or federal court of competent jurisdiction located in New York, NY.
