2. APPLICABILITY OF CONDITIONS
These general terms and conditions (in the following “T&Cs”) apply to all orders and subsequent orders flowing therefrom for Subscriptions. The T&Cs can be consulted by Subscriber and downloaded from the website https://www.Rulebooks.ai/terms (in the following: the “Website”).
By concluding a Subscription, by placing the order to such effect, Subscriber declares to agree with the applicability and substance of the T&Cs.
Rulebooks has the right during an Agreement to proceed with the modification of the applicable T&Cs. Rulebooks will accordingly inform Subscriber at least three months before the effective date.
The applicability of purchasing or other conditions of the Subscriber is expressly rejected. The signing of (tacit) acceptance by Rulebooks of documents of Subscriber to which such general terms and conditions have been declared applicable never counts as the acceptance thereof.
If any provision of the T&Cs is void or is annulled, the other provisions of the T&Cs will remain fully effective. Rulebooks and Subscriber, in such case, will enter into consultations with the purpose of establishing new provisions to replace the void or annulled provisions, whereby the purpose and tenor of the void or annulled provisions are observed as much as possible.
Rulebooks can set conditions for the qualifications and the number of Administrators of Subscriber. Subscriber designates an Administrator. The Administrator acts as a contact person and is authorized to conduct, on behalf of the Subscriber, Administrator actions, such as registering End-users and Administrators, all matters in accordance with these T&Cs.
3. OFFERS AND ADOPTION AGREEMENT
All offers and other expressions of Rulebooks are non-committal unless indicated otherwise by Rulebooks in writing. An Agreement is adopted between Rulebooks and the Subscriber after receipt of the order confirmation by the Subscriber.
4. PRICE, FEE OWED, AND PAYMENT
All prices are exclusive of sales tax (VAT) and other levies that have been or are imposed by the authorities. Prices are always listed in Euros, and the Subscriber must settle all payments in Euros.
Regarding the performances conducted by Rulebooks and the sums owed for them by Subscriber, the relevant documents and data from the administration or systems of Rulebooks provide full proof, without prejudice to the right of Subscriber, to provide proof to the contrary.
Rulebooks reserves itself the right on the grounds of indexation or, respectively general price and cost increases to implement price changes without prior notification annually.
Rulebooks reserves the right outside the grounds indicated in article 4.3 to change the fees for the Subscription no more often than twice a year following prior notification to the Subscriber of at least 3 months. Rulebooks, in addition, reserves itself the right, with prior notification, one month in advance, to implement a price change if Rulebooks is subject to a price increase by one of its subcontractors.
Settlement of the use of the Platform occurs based on the number of Entities managed. Subscriber is invoiced monthly retrospectively for the number of tickets.
Payment of the fees owed by Subscriber to Rulebooks occurs through direct debit.
Suppose direct debit, for whatever reason, does not lead (timely) to the full settlement of the fee owed, or the invoice has yet to be settled within the term set for it. In that case, Subscriber falls into default immediately and owes the statutory commercial interest rate and collection costs on the outstanding amount without any warning or default notice being required.
If the Subscriber, after warning or default notice, remains negligent with paying the claim, Rulebooks can transfer the claim, in which case the Subscriber will be obliged, besides the total amount then owed, to compensate all collection costs as well, also including all
costs charged by external experts, all matters without prejudice to the right of Rulebooks to suspend the implementation of the Subscription completely or in part, and without prejudice to the right of Rulebooks to exercise any other legal and/or established right.
Each Party can obtain Confidential Information from the other Party that must reasonably be considered to be the property of the providing Party, to be confidential, or competition-sensitive (Confidential Information). Parties will keep Confidential Information confidential and take reasonable measures to protect the Confidential Information of the other Party and not disclose it to third parties unless the other Party is authorized to do so or if mandatory legal provisions require this.
Unless established otherwise in writing, it is permitted to Rulebooks to mention in one or more (press) statements the entry into or the existence of the Agreement.

Parties will never be obliged to compensate for damages because of cancellation.
After the end or in case of the intermediate termination of the Agreement, Rulebooks will transfer all Data within the Workspace to Subscriber within a reasonable term and/or upon request of Subscriber destroy or remove all Data and confirm in writing to Subscriber that all Data within the Workspace have been destroyed or removed. If Rulebooks is subject to the legal obligation to continue to process, it will grant the request of the Subscriber to the extent such is permitted on the grounds of the Applicable Law.
Each of the Parties can cancel the Subscription without default notice with immediate effect completely or in part if the counterparty is granted - whether or not provisionally - suspension of payments, if bankruptcy is filed for concerning the other Party, or if the enterprise of the other Party is definitively liquidated or terminated otherwise than for the purpose of reconstruction or merger of enterprises, or if the decisional power over the enterprise of Subscriber changes. Because of such termination, Rulebooks is never obliged to refund any sums already received or compensate for damage. In the case of a bankruptcy of the Subscriber, the right of use of the Workspace provided to the Subscriber lapses legally.

In that case, Subscriber hereby grants permission to Rulebooks for the exchange of Data between Rulebooks and the relevant third party to the extent this is designated as necessary for their services by this third party. This is also intended to include exchanging (personal) data and storing access or identification codes/tokens to realize this data exchange/integration.
Subscriber is responsible for (having) set up and realizing integrations/data exchanges (including authorizations) correctly, whether or not while using the API, between the Workspace and the third party/parties selected by Subscriber.
Rulebooks is never responsible and/or liable for the (correct) functioning of software of Subscriber and/or third parties that communicate/exchange data via the API.
If use is made by the Subscriber of one or more API as provided by Rulebooks, whether or not via its website, then a non-transferable, non-exclusive, and non-sub-licensable right of use is granted to Subscriber for the duration of the Subscription to use the API within the own organization for internal purposes exclusively.
It is permitted to Rulebooks at its discretion to apply a request restriction (“throttling”) at the moment that the API traffic that Subscriber generates burdens the system to such a degree that the performance for other subscribers/users deteriorates/is hindered as a result.
Rulebooks reserves the right to bill additional charges to the Subscriber and/or third parties for using the API by the Subscriber and/or third parties.

10. INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS
All intellectual property rights to the SaaS service or other materials developed or provided to Subscriber on the grounds of the agreement lie exclusively with Rulebooks, its licensors, or suppliers. Subscriber acquires the rights of use granted expressly by the present T&Cs, the Agreement, and the law. A right of use falling to the Subscriber is non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-pawnable, and non-sub-licensable.
Rulebooks safeguards Subscriber against any claim by a third party that is based on the contention that the SaaS service or other materials developed by Rulebooks violate a right of intellectual property of the such third party, on the condition that Subscriber forthwith informs Rulebooks in writing regarding the existence and substance of the claim and leaves the handling of the case, also including the reaching of possible settlements, entirely to Rulebooks To such effect, Subscriber will provide the necessary authorizations, information, and assistance to Rulebooks to defend itself against such claims. This indemnification obligation lapses if the alleged violation is related:
- to materials provided by Subscriber for use, adaptation, processing, or maintenance to Rulebooks or
- to changes that the Subscriber has applied or without the written permission of Rulebooks to the software or other materials. If it has been irrefutably established judicially that software or other materials developed by Rulebooks itself violate any right of intellectual property belonging to a third party or if, in the opinion of Rulebooks, there is a reasonable risk of such a violation occurring, Rulebooks will, if possible, make sure that Subscriber will continue to be able to use the delivered matters or functionally equivalent different software. Any other or farther-reaching indemnification obligation of Rulebooks on account of a violation of a right of intellectual property of a third party is excluded.
112. (OTHER) RESPONSIBILITIES SUBSCRIBER

To prevent possible liability towards third parties or to mitigate the consequences thereof, Rulebooks always has the right to take measures in the matter of an action or omission of or at the risk of Subscriber, without being obliged to provide compensation of damages to Subscriber as a result. Subscriber is obliged upon first written request of Rulebooks to immediately remove information (including uploaded pictures, logos, texts, etc.), failing which Rulebooks has the right at its option to either remove the information or to render access to it impossible. Rulebooks furthermore has the right in case of the violation or imminent violation of the Agreement to deny Subscriber immediately and without prior announcement access to the systems of Rulebooks and/or to deny the use of a sub-domain name, e-mail address, and/or system name and without being obliged to compensate damages to Subscriber for this. The preceding keeps expressly unaffected any possible other measures or the exercise of other rights by Rulebooks towards Subscriber. Rulebooks has the right in such case to cancel the Agreement with immediate effect without being obliged to provide compensation of damages towards Subscriber for this.
It cannot be demanded of Rulebooks to form an opinion of the legitimacy of claims by third parties, of the defense of the Subscriber, or to be involved in any manner in a dispute between a third party and Subscriber. Subscriber will have to deal with the relevant third party in such cases and inform Rulebooks in writing, including substantiation with documentary evidence.

Rulebooks only carries out the provision of services by order of Subscriber.

In that case, all associated costs will be billed to Subscriber.
In connection with changes to relevant legislation and regulations and other regulations issued by competent agencies, Rulebooks can apply changes to the content or scope of the provision of services. Suppose such changes entail modifying the procedures that are effective at Subscriber. In that case, Rulebooks will accordingly inform Subscriber as timely as possible, and Subscriber will bear the costs of such modifications.
Rulebooks can continue implementing the service by using a new or modified version of Rulebooks, whereby the functionality will be equivalent or improved concerning the established functionality. Rulebooks is not obliged to maintain, modify, or add certain characteristics or functionalities of the service or Rulebooks specifically for Subscriber. Rulebooks has the right to ask for an additional fee for new functionalities.

Subscriber must have sufficient bandwidth at his disposal. It is assumed that always at least the bandwidth (both for downloading and uploading) is available as indicated on the website of Rulebooks for the workstation from which Rulebooks is used, as measured via an independent website such as www.speedtest.nl. However, each workstation can have a limited amount of bandwidth available.
Rulebooks is not obliged to carry out data conversion.
If and to the extent necessary or desirable, Rulebooks will, if defects in the results of the provision of services (the processing of wage and personnel data) on the grounds of the Subscription are a direct consequence of software, procedures, or actions for which Rulebooks is expressly responsible on the grounds of the Subscription, repeat the provision of services to restore these imperfections, on condition Subscriber communicates the imperfections as soon as possible, though no later than within one week after obtaining the results, in writing and detail to Rulebooks Only if defects in the provision of services are attributable to Rulebooks, the repetition is carried out for free; in all other cases, Rulebooks will bill the costs of a possible repetition in accordance with its customary rates. Suppose the restoral of defects attributable to Rulebooks in the opinion of Rulebooks is technically or reasonably not possible. In that case, Rulebooks will credit the sums the Subscriber owes for the relevant provision of services without being further or otherwise liable to the Subscriber. No other rights fall to Subscriber due to defects in the provision of services than those described above.
Rulebooks will exert itself to the best of their ability, but more is needed to guarantee that Rulebooks will be timely adapted to changes to relevant legislation and regulations.

Rulebooks is not responsible for the content and composition of the sub-domain name and/or system name and the use of the sub-domain name and/or system name.

Subscriber safeguards Rulebooks and indemnifies Rulebooks against/for any claim by a third party related to the sub-domain name and/or system name.
14. LIMITATION LIABILITY
The total liability of Rulebooks on account of an attributable shortcoming in complying with its obligations under the Agreement or on any other account, also including a warranty obligation and waiver, is limited to the compensation of a maximum of the amount equal to the total of the fees (exclusive of VAT) that were paid for the Subscription in the twelve (12) months preceding the fact that caused the damage.
Under no circumstance will the total cumulative liability of Rulebooks exceed € 100,000 (one hundred thousand Euros). Rulebooks can exclusively be obliged to compensate for direct damage. Direct damage is exclusively intended:
- the costs that Subscriber has incurred for forcedly keeping operational its old system or systems and associated facilities for longer because Rulebooks has not performed on a date that is binding for it, minus any possible savings that are the result of the delayed performance;
- reasonable costs incurred to determine the cause and scope of the damage, to the extent the determination regards direct damage in the sense of this article;

Rulebooks cannot be held accountable for the damage from careless use of the Subscription, such as the incorrect application of the division of functions, the incorrect management of passwords, or inappropriate use. Also excluded is the liability of Rulebooks on account of the maiming, destruction, or loss of data or documents.
As described in the previous sections of this article, the exclusions and limitations of the liability of Rulebooks leave entirely unaffected the other exclusions and limitations of liability of Rulebooks on account of the Agreement.
The exclusions and limitations referred to in this article lapse if and to the extent the damage results from the wilful intent or deliberate recklessness of the management of Rulebooks.
The liability of Rulebooks on account of attributable shortcomings in complying with an agreement only arises if Subscriber immediately declares the default of Rulebooks in writing, whereby a reasonable term is set for the restoring of the shortcoming and Rulebooks even after that term continues to fall short in complying with its obligations.
Each claim for compensating damages against Rulebooks lapses through the simple expiry of twenty-four months after the claim arises.
Subscriber acknowledges that said limitations of liability are incorporated in the fee that the Subscriber owes for the Subscription and must therefore be considered reasonable.
15. FORCE MAJEURE
In case of force majeure on the part of one of the Parties, the obligations on the grounds of this Agreement will be suspended for as long as the force majeure situation continues. Force majeure is also intended as a shortcoming of suppliers of Rulebooks. The suspension will not apply, however, for the obligations that the force majeure is not regarding and/or the obligations that have arisen before the situation of force majeure has become effective.
Suppose the force majeure situation lasts for more than sixty days. In that case, Parties have the right to terminate the Agreement by way of registered mail unless it can be foreseen that the force majeure situation will be resolved within a reasonable term. What has already been performed as a consequence of the Agreement will be settled proportionally, without Parties owing each other anything otherwise.
16. MODIFICATION AND ADDITIONAL WORK
Subscriber can request the reinstallation of a backup against payment of the rate applicable for this at Rulebooks. For this service, an arrangement must be made separately. Rulebooks strives to realize his reinstallation within one business day, against the fee that applies at such time.
If Rulebooks, upon request or with the prior consent of Subscriber, has conducted activities or other performances that fall outside the content or scope of the established activities and/or performances, these activities or performances will be compensated by Subscriber in accordance with the customary rates of Rulebooks. Rulebooks is never obliged to grant such a request and may demand that a separate written agreement be concluded.
17. TRANSFER OF RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS
Subscriber is not entitled to sell and/or transfer the rights and/or obligations from the Subscription to a third party.
Rulebooks has the right to transfer its claims to the payment of fees to a third party.
