For the first year of license use, this is the license fee for one use of 200 used slots and for each additional year of license use, the license fee for one use of 1,000 used slots. If the minimum license fee is not achieved, the customer must nevertheless pay license fees in the amount of the minimum license fee.

9.2 Unless otherwise agreed between the customer and TeamSpeak, the license fees stated in the service description for the respective license model shall be deemed agreed.

9.3 TeamSpeak is entitled to change the license fees within the scope of a further development of the software solutions or for reasons of adaptation to the market situation.

19.2 In other cases TeamSpeak is only liable - as far as not differently regulated in clause 19.1 of these GTC - in case of violation of a contractual obligation, the fulfilment of which is essential for the proper execution of the contract and on whose compliance the customer may therefore regularly rely (so-called cardinal obligation). In all other cases, TeamSpeak's liability is excluded, subject to the provisions in Section 19.1 of these GTC.

19.3 As far as TeamSpeak is liable according to clause 19.1 of these GTC, this liability is limited to damages which TeamSpeak has foreseen as a possible consequence of a breach of contract at the time of conclusion of the contract or which should have been foreseen in case of application of customary care. Indirect damages and consequential damages resulting from defects in performance by TeamSpeak are only compensable if such damages are typically to be expected when the performance is used as intended.

19.4 The liability of TeamSpeak for damages from injury to life, body or health and according to the Product Liability Act remains unaffected by the above limitations and exclusions of liability.

20. Offsetting, rights of retention and assignment

20.1 The customer is only entitled to offset against legally established or undisputed claims against TeamSpeak. The same applies to the assertion of rights of retention.

20.2 The assignment of claims against TeamSpeak to third parties is only possible with the written consent of TeamSpeak. This applies in particular to a transfer of the license granted by TeamSpeak to third parties.

21. Text form

21.1 Amendments and modifications of the agreements made between TeamSpeak and the customer including these GTC must be made in writing to become effective.

21.2 With the exception of managing directors or authorized signatories, TeamSpeak employees are not entitled to make any verbal agreements to the contrary.

 

22. Applicable law and place of jurisdiction

22.1 German law shall apply. In the case of consumers, this choice of law applies only insofar as the protection granted by mandatory provisions of the law of the country of the consumer's habitual residence is not withdrawn (principle of favourability).

22.2 The place of performance for all services arising from business relations with TeamSpeak and the place of jurisdiction shall be the registered office of TeamSpeak, provided that the User is not a consumer but a merchant, a legal entity under public law or a special fund under public law. The same applies if the user does not have a general place of jurisdiction in Germany or the EU or if his place of residence or usual abode is not known at the time the action is filed. The authority to appeal to the court at another legal place of jurisdiction remains unaffected by this.

22.3 The provisions of the UN Sales Convention expressly do not apply.
