Terms of Service (ToS)
Scope of services
The scope of services results from the current contract at the time of the order, as can be called up at www.hostingtime.de.
Start of contract, end of contract
The contract between the landlord and the customer only comes about when HostingTime accepts the customer application. The customer is notified of the acceptance of the contract by email and can be seen in the customer panel at www.hostingtime.de. Minors may not use the services offered by HostingTime without the consent of their legal guardians. For mutual security, the customer undertakes to correctly provide all the data required in the contract. The payment obligation arises between the customer and HostingTime at the latest on the day of activation and provision of services by HostingTime.
Both the customer and HostingTime can terminate the contractual relationship at any time and without giving any reason within the period specified on the contract. If the notice period is not specified, a notice period of two weeks at the end of the month applies. Late cancellations will be processed automatically at the end of the next month.
HostingTime can discontinue services free of charge or additional services free of charge at any time without notice. A notification by email is sufficient to notify the setting.
Termination on the part of the customer requires a corresponding request from the customer panel for the respective product to be effective. Alternatively, in writing by letter or fax. The termination must contain the customer's personal and customer data and must be signed by hand in order to be effective.
Performance obligations for the creation of websites, web hosting and digital learning media The company HostingTime guarantees an availability of its servers of 99.0% in annual mean. This does not apply to times when the server cannot be reached via the Internet due to technical or other problems that are outside the sphere of influence of HostingTime (force majeure, fault of third parties, etc.). HostingTime can restrict access to the services if the security of the network operation, the maintenance of the network integrity, in particular the avoidance of serious disruptions to the network, the software or stored data so require.
The customer can switch to another offer offered by HostingTime, if available and technically possible. A change to a cheaper offer is possible at the end of the prepaid period. The switch to an offer with a higher fee is possible at any time. The extended services will be provided as soon as possible. The higher fee is calculated from the date of the changeover.
HostingTime is also entitled to invoice or collect claims resulting from the change in offer. Credit notes are offset against future benefits. In the future, the notice period specified for the newly selected offer will apply as the notice period.
The right to terminate the contract without notice remains due to important reasons. An important reason is in particular in the event of serious or continued violations of the contractual regulations and if the contract cannot be fulfilled. In the event of termination for an important reason, HostingTime is entitled to deny access to the services provided immediately. In this case too, HostingTime can block and delete stored data or content without setting a deadline.
Support and communication
The normal way of communication is via mail (ticket system), in exceptional cases telephone or fax can also be used. Orders and order confirmations are always made in writing, usually by email. Support for setting up scripts, PERL / PHP, programming and the like are not included in normal support.
Please send complaints about incorrect services, technical support and other questions to firstname.lastname@example.org or to our postal address. Mails that cannot be delivered due to incorrect information do not release the customer from his obligations. HostingTime may pass on obligations and rights arising from this contract to third parties. If the customer does not object in writing within a period of 7 days, the transfer will take effect.
The prices stated in the price information are understood to be VAT-free. The prices applicable to the conclusion of the contract and publicly published on the website for the respective scope of services apply. Discounts and deductions must be in writing as well as changes, extensions or reductions based exclusively on written agreements.
The products provided by HostingTime are used at the applicable fees. This is either a flat monthly fee or a variable fee depending on the extent of the use of the offer.
Invoicing is done exclusively by email. The invoices will only be sent by post at the express request of the customer. The resulting costs are billed to the customer.
HostingTime reserves the right to change the fees at the beginning of a new billing period. Changed fees will be communicated to the customer at least four weeks before they come into force at the email address specified in the order. An increase in the fees gives the customer an extraordinary right to terminate the contract with a notice period of two weeks before the increase comes into force. Known increases in fees at the time of the order do not require separate notification and do not constitute a special right to terminate the contract.
The payment of the fees is principally made by bank transfer, paypal or Sofortüberweisung. The customer authorizes HostingTime, as specified in the contract, to collect any fees incurred through the customer's current account, insofar as agreed. The authorization also extends to subsequent and variable fees, other purchase prices and new bank details provided by the customer.
The customer is obliged to contact HostingTime in good time, i.e. at least 1 week before the start of the next billing period, to be informed by email. The customer is automatically in default 30 days after receipt of the invoice. From this point on, the outstanding claim is to be subject to 5% interest above the applicable base rate and the corresponding product must be blocked by HostingTime until receipt of payment. An amount of EUR 5.00 is agreed for each reminder letter.
If the customer pays by bank transfer, the ordered product will be activated at the earliest after payment of the first full installment. Payment must be made to the HostingTime account immediately after invoicing, at the latest within 5 days, unless a direct debit authorization has been issued. A payment is only considered to have been made when HostingTime can dispose of the amount.
The customer is also responsible for fees that other people, authorized or unauthorized, cause with their access data.
Furthermore, the company HostingTime reserves the right to pass on the corresponding claim to a debt collection company if the reminder is unsuccessful.

Consequences of withdrawal
1.) In the event of an effective cancellation, the services received on both sides must be returned and any benefits drawn (e.g. interest) must be surrendered. If you are unable to return the received performance and use (e.g. benefits of use) or only partially or only in a deteriorated condition, you may have to compensate us for the value. You only have to pay compensation for the deterioration of the item and for the use made, insofar as the use or the deterioration can be attributed to handling the item that goes beyond checking the properties and functionality.

You have to bear the regular costs of the return if the delivered goods correspond to the ordered ones and if the price of the item to be returned does not exceed an amount of 40 euros or if you do not receive the consideration or a higher price of the item at the time of the cancellation have made a contractually agreed partial payment. Otherwise, the return is free for you. Items that cannot be sent as parcels will be picked up from you. Obligations to reimburse payments must be fulfilled within 30 days. The period begins for you when you send your cancellation or the goods, for us with their receipt.
2.) When providing services, the revocation may mean that you nevertheless have to fulfill the contractual payment obligations for the period up to the revocation. Obligations to reimburse payments must be fulfilled within 30 days. The period begins for you when you send your cancellation or the goods, for us with their receipt.
1.) When providing services, your right of withdrawal expires prematurely if, at your express request, the contract is fulfilled in full by both parties before you have exercised your right of withdrawal. The right of withdrawal is excluded in accordance with § 312d Paragraph 4 No. 1 BGB with the software activation at your request and with sending the necessary data to us.
