General Terms of business:

1 Areas of application

These General Terms of Business (subsequently referred to as GTB for short) form the basis for all legal transactions between Clusterland Oberösterreich GmbH (subsequently referred to as Clusterland for short) and another contractual partner and represent an integral part of all quotations, services and deliveries.

Therefore, other conditions of the contractual partner shall remain inapplicable, even when the Clusterland does not raise specific objection.  The GTB shall also apply to extended performance or changes to existing contracts, even when not expressly referred to.

Our employees shall not be entitled to reach any agreements deviating from the GTB.

Individual contractual deviations shall require the written consent of both contractual parties.

2 Quotations

Quotations on our part shall only be made in writing and be binding for one month. Order confirmation shall always be made in writing and both contractual parties shall complete the subsequent legally binding agreements with company signatures. 

3 Protection of intellectual property

The contractual parties undertake that all the analyses, reports, documentation, etc. prepared by Clusterland during contractual realisation shall only be employed for the order object. Without exception, the paid or unpaid transfer of data to third parties or a publication shall require the written consent of Clusterland.

The right of copyright to the performance provided shall remain with Clusterland. Even after the full payment of the agreed amount, the usufruct right of the contractual partner to the intellectual property contained in the performance provided shall be restricted to the objective of the contractual partner and the scope determined within the contract. Should an unauthorised transfer occur, Clusterland retains the right to assert a claim for damages.

4 Withdrawal, premature contractual cancellation

Unless otherwise agreed, the contractual partner shall have the right to withdraw from the contract is exchange for the payment of a cancellation charge amounting to 20% of the contractual value without the presentation of reasons (§ 909 Austrian Civil Code). The right of judicial restraint shall be excluded in all cases.   

5 Data use

Should partner companies, customers, participants in competitions, etc. provide us with data, diverse information material, graphics, photos, etc. it shall be guaranteed that those persons furnishing us with this material dispose over all usufruct rights and may transfer these to us.

6 Confidentiality

We guarantee that all data about which we shall be informed, will be dealt with confidentially and employed only for the agreed purpose.

7 Conditions of payment

Unless otherwise expressly agreed in writing, the prices stated in the order shall apply exclusive of turnover tax and miscellaneous charges and taxes applying in individual cases. Unless otherwise expressly agreed in writing, half the payment shall be made in advance as a down payment upon the provision of the order confirmation and half following the completion of the order and the presentation of an invoice. Payment shall be due upon the receipt of an invoice without deductions.

8 Address

The contractual partner shall inform us immediately in writing of changes of address. Otherwise, following the standard postal process, written messages shall be regarded as delivered, when they have been sent to the address last made known to us.

9 Miscellaneous

Should individual provisions of the contract or these GTB become invalid or unenforceable, this shall have no effect on the remaining conditions. The invalid or unenforceable provision shall be replaced by a provision that comes closest to the purpose of the contract or this agreement.

10 Dispatch of e-mails

It is expressly agreed that Clusterland Oberösterreich GmbH may provide its contractual partners with information via its monthly newsletter, as well as information relating to new products and services via e-mail. 

11 Legal seat and applicable law

The responsible court at the company seat in Linz shall be responsible for any disputes arising from this contract. Austrian law shall be applied.

The application of the UNCITRAL agreement of the United Nations relating to contracts concerning international goods transport is excluded.
