§ 1 Inclusion and scope

These General Terms of Contract shall apply to all the contracts concluded by FANOMENA with our customers concerning use of our product eventbaxx. The contents of the contract shall solely apply to this contractual relationship with the customer, including the General Terms of Business employed by us, particularly these general terms of contract for eventbaxx – Application Service Providing Contracts. Inclusion of the customer's General Terms of Business is hereby expressly opposed! If and insofar as interested sponsors make avail of the eventbaxx 'Sponsor Marketplace' function, these General Terms of Contract shall apply to sponsors accordingly.

§ 2 General subject of the Contract

eventbaxx shall provide our customer the technical possibility and rights to access via telecommunications a software application hosted on a third-party server and enjoy the functionalities of the software application as part of this Contract.

§ 3 General services

3a.1 eventbaxx is a web-based software-as-a-service product. 3a.2 eventbaxx shall allow our customers, organisers of events of all types and scales, to share their offers, campaigns and information in digital (mobile) form with the event visitor/participant (User). 3a.3 Event organisers shall obtain access via a login system to the product (dashboard) where they can create and manage their events. In addition to creation and management of partners/sponsors, coupons, participants and sending the digital goodie bag to its participants, the event organiser shall have access to statistics that analyse and assess use of the event visitors'/participants' (Users') goodie bag. 3a.4 Event participants (users) shall have web-based access to this digital goodie bag and shall be able to read, use and avail themselves of offers, campaigns and information. § 3b Sponsor Marketplace 3b.1 By means of the 'Sponsor Marketplace' function, eventbaxx shall offer our customers the possibility of finding sponsors for the events advertised by the customers. Registration shall be required in order to use this function. 3b.2 The eventbaxx 'Sponsor Marketplace' function shall be exclusively intended for companies in the sense of § 14 of the BGB (German Civil Code). 3b.3 Potential sponsors of events shall be able to express their non-binding interest in event sponsoring by means of the eventbaxx 'Sponsor Marketplace' function. Publication of any potential interest shall not represent a binding contractual offer, but instead shall serve as an invitation to treat, i.e. an invitation to our customers to communicate to the sponsors a concrete offer to conclude an eventbaxx sponsoring contract. The customers will subsequently be able to communicate a concretised and legally binding offer to conclude an eventbaxx sponsoring agreement as part of the eventbaxx 'Sponsor Marketplace' function. If the sponsors accept this offer, a legally binding eventbaxx sponsoring contract will be concluded, the subject of which being that the customer shall include a coupon provided by the sponsor or developed on behalf of the sponsor in the former's event goodie bag and the sponsor shall pay the customer the sponsor's fee agreed in this connection. 3b.4 The fee due by the sponsor shall be collected by FANOMENA on behalf of and for the account of our customers. Debt-discharging payment shall only be possible to FANOMENA. FANOMENA shall invoice the customer the remuneration paid by the sponsor to FANOMENA vis a vis the customer within 4 weeks of completion of the event and shall pay the sponsoring contract fee within the same period by bank transfer to the bank account indicated to FANOMENA by the customer. FANOMENA shall be entitled to retain the remuneration agreed with the customer amounting to 15% of the sponsor's fee.

If the customer has approved the event for sponsoring, FANOMENA will submit sponsoring offers, which the customer can accept in case of interest and in return commits himself to place an advertising offer of a customer in his eventbaxx. If the customer accepts a sponsoring offer, a separate sponsoring contract will be concluded with FANOMENA. The respective sponsoring contract regulates the identity of the sponsor, the amount of the sponsoring, the amount of the brokerage fee charged by FANOMENA and the manner of the advertising obligation, usually the inclusion of an advertising coupon of the sponsor in his eventbaxx, which the customer accepts.

§ 4 Usage right

4.1 Our customer shall receive the non-exclusive right, which is limited in time to the term of this contract, to access eventbaxx via telecommunications and to use by means of a browser the functionalities associated with eventbaxx according to the eventbaxx contract. The customer shall not be assigned any other rights beyond this purpose, particularly over eventbaxx, the software application or the operating software.

4.2 The customer shall not be entitled to use eventbaxx beyond the use allowed in accordance with the eventbaxx contract in addition to these General Terms of Contract or allow use by third parties beyond the use allowed in accordance with the eventbaxx contract in addition to these General Terms of Contract or render the service accessible to third parties beyond the use allowed in accordance with the eventbaxx contract in addition to these General Terms of Contract. In particular, the customer shall not be entitled to copy, alienate or surrender for a limited period eventbaxx or parts thereof and shall above all refrain from its leasing or lending.

4.3 If contractual use of eventbaxx is impaired by third party property rights without any fault on the part of FANOMENA, FANOMENA shall be entitled to deny the affected services. FANOMENA shall notify the customer immediately thereof and allow the customer access to the latter's data in an appropriate manner. Our customer shall not be obliged to make any payment in this case. Other claims or rights on the customer's part shall remain unaffected.

§ 5 Data protection and data security

5.1 Both parties shall observe the data protection regulations applicable in each case, in particular those valid in Germany (EU basic data protection regulation, BDSG-Neu), and commit their employees in connection with the contract to data secrecy and confidentiality, as far as these are not already generally obligated accordingly.

5.2 If the customer collects, processes or uses personal data himself or through FANOMENA, he is responsible for ensuring that he is entitled to do so in accordance with the applicable, in particular data protection regulations and indemnifies FANOMENA from third-party claims in the event of a violation.

5.3 It is clarified that the customer remains 'master of data' both generally in the contractual relationship and in the sense of data protection law. Our customer is the sole owner of all customer-specific data (data entered, data processed, data stored, data output). FANOMENA does not control the data and content stored for the customer with regard to the legal admissibility of the collection, processing and use; this responsibility is assumed exclusively by the customer.

5.4 If necessary, the parties shall conclude the necessary contract for the processing of personal data on behalf of the customer (order processing agreement pursuant to Art. 28 GDPR) separately and attach it to the contractual documents.

5.5 FANOMENA takes technical and organizational security precautions and measures to guarantee data protection. The customer is not entitled to demand access to the premises with the software application, server and operating software as well as other system components of eventbaxx. This does not affect the access rights of the customer's data protection officer after written registration to check compliance with the technical and organizational measures and other legal and contractual handling of personal data by FANOMENA within the scope of eventbaxx' operation in accordance with this contract.
