Under no circumstances will We be responsible for any damage, loss or injury resulting from hacking, tampering, or other unauthorized access or use of the Service or Your Account or the information contained therein. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, Zazu assumes no liability or responsibility for any (i) errors, mistakes, or inaccuracies of content; (ii) personal injury or property damage, of any nature whatsoever, resulting from Your access to or use of Our Service; (iii) any unauthorized access to or use of Our secure servers and/or any and all personal information stored therein; (iv) any interruption or cessation of transmission to or from the Service; (v) any bugs, viruses, trojan horses, or the like that may be transmitted to or through Our Service by any Third-Party; (vi) any errors or omissions in any content or for any loss or damage incurred as a result of the use of any content posted, emailed, transmitted, or otherwise made available through the Service; and/or (vii) User Content or the defamatory, offensive, or illegal conduct of any Third-Party; (viii) for discontinuing an older release of the Service; (ix) any loss, damages or modification to User Data. Each Party shall have the duty to mitigate damages.
Liability: To the maximum extent permitted under applicable law, Zazu’s liability under the Agreement shall per event (or series of connected events) not exceed the Fees paid by You to Us under the Agreement for a period of twelve (12) months prior to the date of the event (or last of the series of connected events) giving rise to the claim.
Timeframe: No action, regardless of form or nature, arising out of this Agreement may be brought by or on behalf of You more than one (1) year after the cause of action first arose.
User Content: Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, Zazu shall not be liable for any damages, costs, or losses arising as a result of modifications made to User Content or other content, any additions or combinations of User Content with other content, or the context in which the User Content or other content is used by You.
Applicability: Some countries or states do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the limitations or exclusions may not apply to You. This Agreement gives You specific legal rights, and You may also have other rights which vary depending on your jurisdiction. The disclaimers, exclusions, and limitations of liability under this Agreement will not apply to the extent prohibited by applicable law.
Applicable law & jurisdiction: This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Germany and exclusive jurisdiction shall lie with the competent courts in Hamburg, Germany.
Disputes: Any and all disputes arising under, pertaining to, or touching upon this Agreement, shall, if not settled by negotiation, first be subject to mediation before an independent and certified mediator selected by the Parties or by the competent court on a Party’s demand. Any demand for mediation shall be made in writing to the other Party. The demand shall set forth with reasonable specificity the basis of the dispute and the relief sought. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Parties may seek preliminary judicial relief if such action is necessary to avoid irreparable damage.
Confidential Information: Parties shall treat all Confidential Information received from the other Party as confidential, keep it secret, and shall not disclose it to any Third-Party, other than its agents, employees, advisors, or consultants where such disclosure is necessary for the performance of the Agreement and only in case such agents, employees, advisors or consultants are bound by a confidentiality obligation at least as strict as included in the Agreement. Any Confidential Information disclosed shall only be used as required for the performance of either Parties’ obligations under the Agreement. Both Parties agree to take sufficient precautionary measures to maintain the confidentiality of all Confidential Information. Information shall not be considered Confidential Information if it: (i) is published or comes into the public domain other than by a breach of the Agreement, (ii) can be proven to have been known by the receiving Party before disclosure by the disclosing Party; (iii) is lawfully obtained from a Third-Party other than by a confidentiality breach of such Third-Party; or (iv) can be shown to have been created by the receiving Party independently of the disclosure. The obligations set out in this provision shall enter into force as of the start of the negotiations between the Parties and shall survive five (5) years after the termination or expiration of the Agreement. The confidentiality obligations in the Agreement replace any prior nondisclosure agreement signed between the Parties. Confidential Information can be made publicly available if both Parties agree on this in writing.
Assignment: This Agreement is assigned to You. For the avoidance of doubt, this Agreement and any rights or licenses claimed hereunder may not be transferred by You. However, Zazu may transfer or reassign this Agreement without restriction.
Notification Procedure: We may provide notifications to You (whether required by law or not). These notifications include, but are not limited to business-related purposes, marketing or legal topics. We reserve the right to choose the form and means of providing such notifications. You may, however, opt out of certain notifications. You understand and agree that opting-out of certain notifications may prohibit You to fully be aware of and benefit from all Service-related offers & topics.
Changes to the Terms & Conditions: Zazu may, in its sole discretion, modify or update the Terms & Conditions from time to time, and so You should review this page periodically. When We change the Terms & Conditions in a material manner, We will update the ‘last modified’ date at the top of this page. Your continued use of the Service after any such change constitutes Your acceptance of the new Terms and Conditions. If You do not agree to any of these terms or any future Terms and Conditions do not use or access (or continue to access) the Service.
Severability: This Agreement together with any amendments and any additional agreements shall constitute the entire Agreement between You and Zazu. This Agreement supersedes and cancels all previous written and oral agreements, communications, and other understandings relating to the subject matter of this Agreement. In the event that a provision of this Agreement is or becomes partly or fully invalid or unenforceable or if this Agreement contains a gap or omission, the validity of the remaining provisions of this Agreement is not affected thereby. The Parties are obliged to replace the partly or fully invalid or unenforceable provision with a valid and enforceable provision, which comes closest to the meaning of the partly or fully invalid or unenforceable provision. The same applies in the event that this Agreement contains a gap or omission.
No waiver: No waiver of any term of this Agreement shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and Zazu’s failure to assert any right or provision under this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
Force Majeure: Neither Party will be responsible or liable for any failure or delay in the performance of its obligations under the Agreement arising out of or caused by Force Majeure. In the event of Force Majeure, the Party shall inform the other Party at least within a reasonable time about the nature of Force Majeure and the fact that it wants to rely on this provision. The Party must, within a reasonable time, provide the other Party with the evidence of the existence of the Force Majeure, the date when the Force Majeure comes or has come into effect, and also when it will have ceased to exist. In the event of failure to comply with the abovementioned procedure, the Party shall be prevented from relying on the Force Majeure event and the Force Majeure provision.
Conflict: In case of conflict between the provisions of the contractual documents executed between the Parties, the first document shall prevail on the latter: (i) the Order Form or relevant Pricing Plan, (ii) the Terms and Conditions (iii) other Annexes, unless explicitly agreed otherwise in writing between the Parties.
Publicity: Zazu shall have the right to use any trademarks, logos, or other marks of the User (including the User’s corporate name – if applicable) for client references on Zazu’s website, Service, social media announcements, and sales presentations. The User can revoke this right at any time in written form for any reason or no reason.
