GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR SUPERBRYTE
The users are requested to read these GTC carefully before using the Bryte services. By using the Bryte services, the Customers declare their consent to be bound by these conditions and to conclude individual transactions and contracts, also with third parties, on the basis of these conditions. The users are further requested to read the data protection declaration and the information on cookies as well as the information available at (https://www.superbryte.com/privacy) in order to understand how Bryte collects and processes the personal data of its Customers through Bryte services. Bryte provides the Bryte Services subject to the terms and conditions set out below.
1.1 All contractual relationships, deliveries and services of Bryte Technologies GmbH, registered in the Commercial Register of the Local Court of Berlin Charlottenburg under HRB 232684 B and business address at Rosenthaler Straße 13, 10119 Berlin (hereinafter "Bryte"), are based on these General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter "GTC"). They are an integral part of all contracts that Bryte concludes with its contractual partners and users (hereinafter referred to as "Customer") regarding the services or deliveries offered by Bryte. (Bryte and Customer hereinafter individually the "Contract Partner" and jointly the "Contract Partners".
1.2 These GTC shall also apply to all future deliveries, services or offers made to the Customer within the framework of a permanent contract of use of the services provided by Bryte (hereinafter referred to as "Term Contract"), without these GTC having to be agreed separately in each individual case. Unless otherwise agreed, these GTC shall apply in the version communicated upon conclusion of the Term Contract.
1.3 These GTC shall apply exclusively. Deviating, conflicting or supplementary general terms and conditions of the Customer or third parties shall only become part of the contract if and to the extent that Bryte has expressly agreed to their validity in writing. General terms and conditions of the Customer or third parties shall therefore not apply subject to Bryte's express consent, even if Bryte does not separately object to their application in individual cases or refers to the exclusive application of these GTC. The consent requirement shall apply in any case. In particular, Bryte's reference to a letter containing or referring to the general terms and conditions of the Customer or a third party, as well as the unconditional performance or delivery in knowledge of the general terms and conditions of the Customer or a third party, does not constitute an agreement with the validity of those general terms and conditions.
1.4 These GTC apply in addition to individual contracts or offers provided by Bryte. If and insofar as agreements made with the Customer in individual cases (including collateral agreements, supplements and amendments) contain deviations from these GTC, these shall in any case take precedence over these GTC. The remaining provisions of these GTC shall remain unaffected.
1.5 If written form is required in these GTC, § 126 BGB (German Civil Code) shall apply. Unless individual provisions of these GTC expressly provide otherwise, the transmission of a copy of the respective document by telecommunication, in particular by fax or as a PDF copy by e-mail, shall be sufficient to comply with the formal requirement, provided that the copy of the signed declaration(s) is transmitted.
1.6 References to the applicability of statutory provisions shall only have a clarifying significance. Even without such clarification, the statutory provisions shall therefore apply unless they are directly amended or expressly excluded in these GTC.

If the payment deadline is exceeded more than three times, this shall constitute an important reason in the sense of §§ 314, 626 BGB (German Civil Code) and shall entitle Bryte to terminate the term contract without notice if Bryte cannot reasonably be expected to adhere to the contract, also taking into account the other circumstances. Already accrued claims shall remain due for payment in the event of termination of the contract.

4. WARRANTY, LIABILITY, LIMITATION PERIOD
4.1 Bryte always tries to ensure that the Bryte Services are available without restrictions or interruptions and that transmissions are error-free. However, due to the nature of the Internet, this cannot be guaranteed at all times. Access to Bryte Services may occasionally be interrupted or restricted to allow for repairs, maintenance or the introduction of new facilities or services. We will attempt to limit the frequency and duration of any such temporary interruption or restriction.

In this case, liability is limited to compensation for the foreseeable, typically occurring damage. In the event of a grossly negligent breach of non-essential contractual obligations, Bryte shall only be liable to entrepreneurs to the amount of the foreseeable, typically occurring damage.
4.4 The liability for damages resulting from injury to life, body or health and according to the Product Liability Act (Produkthafungsgesetz) shall remain unaffected by the aforementioned limitation of liability.

Bryte does not check the content posted on the website (in particular with regard to the infringement of third party rights).

Furthermore, Bryte does not assume any liability for the correctness, up-to-dateness, completeness, quality or legality of the contents not originating from Bryte.

9.1 Amendments and supplements to all contracts must be made in writing in order to be effective, unless another legal form requirement exists. This also applies to amendments to this paragraph.
9.2 Should any provision of these GTC or any provision incorporated in them in the future be wholly or partially invalid or unenforceable or subsequently lose its validity or enforceability, the validity of the GTC shall not be affected thereby. The same shall apply if contracts between the contracting parties contain a loophole. In place of the ineffective or unenforceable provisions or in order to fill the gap, an appropriate provision shall apply which comes as close as possible to what the contracting parties intended or would have intended according to the meaning and purpose of the contract if they had considered the following point when concluding this contract or when adopting a provision at a later date
9.4 The severability clause in clause 9.2 of these General Terms and Conditions shall not be understood as a reversal of the burden of proof, but as a waiver of § 139 BGB (German Civil Code).
