General Terms and Conditions of Business oe service GmbH

1. preamble

Various vehicle brands maintain online portals which, in addition to so-called "digital service booklets", also provide various manufacturer information. These online portals and in particular the digital service booklets are organised and provided as a central database by the respective vehicle manufacturer. In the digital service booklet, all maintenance data and service work on a vehicle can be directly entered, stored and corresponding service information can be retrieved as needed. The customer operates one or more vehicle service and/or repair workshops. In the course of his business, he needs access to the online portals of various vehicle manufacturers, in particular to make entries in the respective digital service booklets, to edit or delete them or to retrieve other manufacturer information on the online portal. Since registration, maintaining access and making entries sometimes prove to be inconsistent, complicated and time-consuming, the customer is looking for a simpler solution for him. The provider offers efficient services in connection with digitisation processes, information procurement and data processing in the automotive service and repair sector. For example, the provider has developed a service based on the "one-stop-shop principle" to make it easier for workshops to process service entries in digital service booklets and to retrieve manufacturer information. The provider makes these services available exclusively to companies with a valid business licence.

2 Scope, communication and conclusion of contract

The following service agreement with the provider applies exclusively to customers who are entrepreneurs as defined by § 1 of the Austrian Commercial Code (UGB). The customer expressly agrees that all notifications, confirmations or declarations of the provider - unless expressly provided otherwise - can also be effectively sent to the customer via the e-mail address provided by the customer. By registering for a customer account, the customer agrees to these contractual provisions and declares his willingness to make use of the Provider's services. The Provider is not obliged to accept the registration. The provider will first confirm receipt of the registration by e-mail, check the content and only then confirm the conclusion of the contract, if any. Deviating agreements, ancillary agreements, terms and conditions of purchase or general terms and conditions of customers shall not be accepted by the provider as part of the contract unless the provider has expressly agreed to their validity in writing in advance.

(b) Ongoing administration of the user accounts there
(c) Entries in digital service booklets (by individual order)

With the inclusion of a new manufacturer portal, the subject matter of the contract is extended accordingly and the provider creates a new portal access for the customer (at no additional cost), unless the customer expressly objects to this within fourteen days of receipt of the written information. If the customer does not wish to receive (further) information about new online portals, he can either (i) refuse to receive this information directly when registering for the account/concluding the contract, or (ii) declare his refusal via a link in each individual piece of information for the future.
