7.3 In cases of ordinary negligence, Heylog is liable for breach of a material contractual obligation. An essential contractual obligation in the sense of this clause is an obligation, the fulfillment of which makes the execution of the contract possible in the first place and on the fulfillment of which the user may therefore regularly rely.

7.5 The liability according to the above clause 3 is limited to the typical, foreseeable damage at the time of the conclusion of the contract.

8.4 If the services to be provided by Heylog under this agreement are defective, Heylog shall, within a reasonable period of time and upon receipt of a written (email is sufficient) notice of defect from the user, either repair or re-perform the services at its option. When using third party software that Heylog has licensed for use by the user, the rectification of defects consists of the procurement and installation of generally available upgrades, updates or patches. Remedial action shall also include the provision of instructions for use with which the user can reasonably circumvent any defects that have occurred in order to use the application in accordance with the contract.
8.5 If the defect-free performance of the services fails for reasons for which Heylog is responsible, even within a reasonable period of time set by the user in writing (e-mail is sufficient), the user may reduce the agreed remuneration by a reasonable amount. The right to a reduction is limited to the amount of the monthly fixed price relating to the defective part of the service.
8.6 If the reduction pursuant to Section 5 reaches the maximum amount specified in Section 5 in two consecutive months or in two months of a quarter, the User may terminate the Agreement without notice.

10.1 The contract for the use of the application is generally concluded for a period of 12 months ("Term"), unless otherwise noted in the offer. If the contract is not terminated one month prior to the expiration of the Term by clicking the appropriate button or written notice (email is sufficient) is received by Heylog, the contract will be automatically renewed on an ongoing basis for an additional 12 months or the period noted in the offer with the respective expiration of the Term.

10.3 The contract may also be terminated by either party without notice if there is good cause for the termination.
10.4 Good cause entitling us to terminate the contract may exist in particular if the user violates one of the obligations described in more detail in Section 5. In this case, we are entitled to warn the user or terminate the contract at our discretion, whereby we will first warn the user if there are no special reasons that justify immediate termination.
11. Copyrights and image rights
11.1 The copyrights and image rights for all images, graphics or designs displayed within the framework of Heylog itself are ours or we are entitled to their use. Use without our express consent is not permitted.
11.2 You grant Heylog, within the scope of using the application by sending and receiving texts and multimedia content, rights of use only to that content which is necessary for the provision of the communication service. This right of use allows us to store the content on data carriers and to use it for the ongoing improvement of Heylog.
12. Electronic communication
12.1 You agree that contract-related communication may take place in electronic form.
13. Changes to these GTC
If no declaration is made within this period, which begins to run from receipt of the message in text form, the amended terms and conditions shall be deemed agreed.

14.1 There shall be no ancillary agreements. Subsidiary agreements must be made in writing - without prejudice to Clause 12. This shall also apply to deviations from this written form clause.
14.2 Should any provision of these GTC, including any provision added at a later date, be invalid, unenforceable or void in part or in whole, or should these GTC contain a gap, the validity of the remaining provisions shall not be affected thereby. The parties agree to replace the invalid, unenforceable or void provision with a legally compliant and enforceable provision that comes as close as possible to the economically intended purpose of the invalid, unenforceable or void provision. The parties shall similarly supplement a necessary, appropriate provision where such a provision is missing.
14.3 The EU Commission offers the possibility for online dispute resolution on an online platform operated by it. This platform can be reached via the external link http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/. We point out that we are neither obligated nor willing to participate in dispute resolution proceedings before a consumer arbitration board.
14.4 The law of the Republic of Austria shall apply to the exclusion of the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. This shall not apply to provisions that are mandatorily applicable under the law of the country in which you are domiciled and which may not be deviated from by agreement.
