The client cannot derive any rights for future assignments from any deviations that may have been agreed upon. General Terms and Conditions used by a client are expressly rejected by the contractor.

8. If the client has concluded an agreement concerning a subscription to gain access to or inspect the CV database created by the contractor, the following paragraphs of this article will apply.
9. The Client acknowledges that the Commissionee is the producer of the Vacancy and CV database within the meaning of the Database Act and is the copyright holder of the Vacancy and CV database.
10. The Client may only use the vacancy and CV database within its own company for the purpose of recruiting new employees for its company, to the extent that this is permitted under the provisions of the Database Act and other applicable legal rules.
11. Client may not publish databases from the vacancy and/or CV database or parts thereof, nor copy or otherwise reproduce, modify or make available to third parties in any way, download them and store them in its own database or on its own computer system, except with the prior written permission of the contractor.
12. Client may only use databases from the CV database, or parts thereof, with a view to filling a concrete, suitable vacancy that is open at the time of use of the CV database and only to the extent that the databases from the CV database, or parts thereof, reasonably match this specific vacancy.
13. The client is not permitted to make improper use of the services of the contractor. This means, among other things, that the user is not permitted to use any soft- and/or hardware-moderate tools and solutions (under his own management or made available by third parties), to the extent that these are intended to take over data, or to spin, scrape, search or otherwise improperly use and/or view the vacancy and CV databases.
14. The Contractor applies fixed limits to the number of databases from the CV and the vacancy database, or parts thereof, that the Principal may use. Client may use a maximum of 225 (two hundred and twenty-five) files from the CV and the vacancy database (or parts thereof) per day, unless agreed otherwise in writing. If the client requests more databases from the CV and the vacancy database, or parts thereof, than the maximum permitted per day, the contractor reserves the right to intervene, for example by blocking the client's account and the client's access to the CV and/or the vacancy database with immediate effect and without further warning. In that case, the contractor shall not owe the client any compensation or restitution of the amount paid. Amounts invoiced or still to be invoiced by the contractor in connection with the agreement will remain due and payable in full and will become immediately due and payable.

The data of candidates consulted and obtained are confidential and remain the property of the contractor. The client is prohibited from making the data available to third parties in any way, unless this is necessary to fill in the vacancy in question. Violation by the third party of the confidentiality obligation is considered to be a violation of the client.

The interest on the amount due and payable will be calculated per month from the moment that the client is (was) in default until the moment of payment of the invoice. Part of a month will be counted as a full month. In the event of default on the part of the client, the contractor shall also be entitled to suspend obligations arising from the agreement.

3. If it is no longer possible or useful to still carry out the agreed work, the contractor will only be liable within the limits of Article 13.
Article 12 - Termination and Discontinuation
1. The Contractor is entitled to dissolve the agreement or deny access to the account, if so:
- the client fails to fulfil the obligations arising from the agreement or to do so in full.
- circumstances that come to the attention of the contractor after the conclusion of the agreement give the latter good reason to fear that the client will not comply with the obligations.
- the client was requested, at the time of concluding the agreement, to provide security for the fulfilment of his obligations under the agreement and this security is not provided or is insufficient.
2. Furthermore, the contractor is authorised to dissolve the agreement or have it dissolved if circumstances arise of such a nature that fulfilment of the agreement is no longer possible or can no longer be demanded according to the standards of reasonableness and fairness, or if other circumstances arise of such a nature that unaltered maintenance of the agreement cannot reasonably be expected.
3. If the agreement is dissolved, the contractor's claims against the client will become immediately due and payable. If the contractor suspends the fulfilment of the obligations, the contractor retains claims under the law and the agreement.

8. On the site(s) the client can view and keep track of his own data and data of applied candidates online by means of his companies management section. To do this, the client needs a personal password and e-mail address. This password and e-mail address has been sent by the client by e-mail at the time of registration on the site(s). The use of the e-mail address in combination with the password (also referred to as the "Access data") legitimises the user vis-à-vis the contractor as the client.
9. The Client shall be responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the Access Details. In none of the circumstances does the Contractor have any responsibility in this respect. It is the client's task to ensure that none of the Access Data are in the hands of unauthorised persons and/or organisations.

10. Should it transpire that the personal Access Details of the Employer are being misused for the site(s), the contractor will not be responsible and/or liable. By agreeing to these General Terms and Conditions, the client declares the contractor free of any claims by third parties as a result of unlawful access to the site(s) (or via the site(s) to other sites.
11. If the candidate receives a remuneration/remuneration from the client which is lower than the agreements made in advance and/or other obligations (e.g. C.A.O. laid down by law), the contractor will be fully responsible or liable for this. In this situation, the client declares, by accepting these General Terms and Conditions, that the contractor will be indemnified against any damage and/or costs incurred by the employer as a result.
12. If the personal data viewed by third parties or lawfully received via the contractor are used incorrectly or unlawfully by third parties, the contractor excludes all liability for this. This is possible as far as legally possible. After acceptance of these General Terms and Conditions, the other party of the contractor declares that the other party guarantees any costs/damage suffered (including claims from third parties) if data is used incorrectly or unlawfully by this other party. This also applies if personal data have reached third parties via the other party.

The Contractor will inform the Principal as soon as possible of a (threatening) situation of force majeure.
3. The parties may suspend their obligations under the agreement during the period that the force majeure continues. If this period lasts longer than two months, each of the parties is entitled to dissolve the agreement, without being obliged to compensate the other party for any damage.
4. Insofar as the contractor has already partially fulfilled his obligations under the agreement or will be able to fulfil them at the time of the commencement of the force majeure and the part already fulfilled or to be fulfilled has independent value, the contractor shall be entitled to invoice the part already fulfilled or to be fulfilled separately. The Client is obliged to pay this invoice as if it were a separate agreement.
Article 16 Confidentiality
1. Both parties are obliged to maintain the confidentiality of all confidential information that they have obtained in the framework of their agreement from each other or from another source. Information is considered confidential if the other party has indicated this or if this follows from the nature of the information or if the parties know or should have known the confidential nature of the information, provided that the information is not accessible from a general source.
2. If, on the basis of a statutory provision or a judicial decision, the contractor is obliged to provide confidential information to third parties designated by law or by the competent court, and the contractor cannot invoke a right to refuse to give evidence under the law or recognised or permitted by the competent court, the contractor shall not be obliged to pay damages or compensation and the client shall not be entitled to dissolve the agreement on the grounds of any damage resulting from this.
