General terms and conditions of PROTIQ GmbH for the use of Additive Manufacturing – Consumers

  1. Subject matter of the Agreement

    1. PROTIQ GmbH, Flachsmarktstraße 54, 32825 Blomberg (hereinafter referred to as “PROTIQ”) ‎ offers its customers an online platform under the URL www.protiq.com, which– within the technical availability – enables the web-based configuration, ordering and production of PROTIQ products (standard products with or without an option to select material) as well as products based on customer-defined content (usually 3D CAD files) (individually configured products) within the scope of additive manufacturing (hereinafter the “Additive Manufacturing Platform”).
    2. In addition, PROTIQ offers various services (eg data check for 3D data independent of a manufacturing order) around additive manufacturing that can be accessed or commissioned via the Additive Manufacturing Platform. The exact content of these services is given in the respective service description. These services may be subject to additional conditions which are then pointed out in the service descriptions. In the event of inconsistencies, the additional conditions shall prevail over these General Terms and Conditions.
    3. These General Terms and Conditions (“GTC”) shall apply exclusively to consumers within the meaning of Section 13 BGB (German Civil Code), ie persons who enter into a legal transaction for purposes that predominantly are outside their commercial or independent trade, business or profession. For entrepreneurs pursuant to Section 14 BGB (German Civil Code) special GTCs shall apply
    4. Deviating or supplementary GTCs of the customer shall not constitute any part of the Agreement even if PROTIQ does not expressly object to them.
    5. PROTIQ reserves the right to use sub-contractors for the fulfilment of customer orders, in particular to the extent that this seems to be reasonable for PROTIQ to cushion order peaks. PROTIQ shall contractually commit such sub-contractors to a duty of confidentiality in accordance with section 2.7 of these GTCs.
  2. Use of Additive Manufacturing Platform; Optional Registration

    1. PROTIQ shall provide the Additive Manufacturing Platform for the purpose of configuration and/or production of additively manufactured components and, if applicable, the provision of any available additional services. The products produced via the Additive Manufacturing Platform shall be sent to the customer.
    2. PROTIQ shall secure its servers on a regular basis and protect them against unauthorized access by means of reasonable technical and economic expenses.
    3. For the use of the Additive Manufacturing Platform, ie for the ordering of standardized or self-configured products, no registration is required.
    4. The customer can optionally register free of charge by entering the required data for the registration on the registration page – either separately or within the ordering process – and by clicking on the “Register now” button. PROTIQ shall store the address and, where applicable, the payment data of registered customers, so that they do not have to be entered again with each order. Upon completion of the registration process described above, PROTIQ shall provide the customer with usage data. The customer himself shall be responsible for keeping the password confidential. He shall keep his password for access confidential, not disclose it, not tolerate or allow third parties to gain knowledge of it, and take the necessary measures to ensure confidentiality. In the case of misuse or loss of this information or a corresponding suspicion, the customer shall notify PROTIQ by e-mail at the e-mail address info@protiq.com. Further services are not associated with the registration.
    5. PROTIQ notifies the customer of the requirements for the files, content and materials to be used within the Additive Manufacturing Platform. If the files provided by the customer do not meet these requirements, eg because the customer wants to use incorrect file formats or incorrect templates, a configuration and production via the Additive Manufacturing Platform is not possible. If the software used on the Additive Manufacturing Platform detects a technical error in a CAD file, this error will be corrected before printing; should an automatic correction not be possible, the order will not be accepted and the customer shall be informed accordingly. However, the customer expressly acknowledges that he is responsible for the correctness of the CAD file and the auto-correction does not claim to be one hundred percent accurate. PROTIQ can also not check whether the CAD design uploaded by the customer and/or the material selected are suitable for the intended purpose of the customer. This is solely the responsibility of the customer.
    6. The customer shall grant PROTIQ the non-exclusive (single) right unlimited in space to use the data, files and materials applied in connection with a print job for the purpose of configuration and production of the products requested by the customer via the Additive Manufacturing Platform as well as for any other purposes regarding the execution of the agreement. This also includes, in particular, the right to keep the files uploaded by the customer within the statutory retention periods, but in any event until the expiration of the limitation period of any claims arising from the Agreement. For the avoidance of doubt: The storage of such data for the customer or their disclosure on request is not subject matter of the Agreement and therefore not mandatory for PROTIQ towards the customer unless there are statutory information and disclosure claims. This also means that the customer himself is responsible for the regular and risk-appropriate backup of the data and content transmitted to PROTIQ (creation of own backup copies).
    7. PROTIQ undertakes to treat the uploaded CAD files of the customer as confidential, not make them accessible to third parties and protect them with the same diligence as its own confidential information against unauthorized access. PROTIQ shall use CAD files of the customer only for the purposes of the respective agreement with the customer and especially not for the manufacture of products for third party customers. Third parties within the meaning of this confidentiality obligation are not such employees, sub-contractors, consultants, performing and vicarious agents of PROTIQ (and/or their sub-contractors) who are deployed for the provision of services or other agreement processing and subject to professional secrecy or committed to confidentiality pursuant to this section 2.7.
    8. When using the Additive Manufacturing Platform and the contractual service the customer shall comply with all applicable laws and other legal provisions of the Federal Republic of Germany. In particular, the customer is prohibited from using files, data or content that breach legal provisions, especially those which infringe third-party property or copyrights or any other rights of third parties. The customer himself shall be responsible for the files, data and content made available by him. The auto-correction software applied by PROTIQ can – in accordance with section 2.5 – detect deficiencies in printability and consistency of the data. However, PROTIQ shall neither check the files, data and content conclusively for their correctness nor for absence of viruses nor whether it is technically possible to examine them for viruses.
  3. Indemnification

    Upon first request, the customer shall indemnify PROTIQ against all intentionally or negligently caused claims by third parties against PROTIQ in connection with the contractual provision of services by PROTIQ, in particular against claims for infringement of competition law and copyright, patent infringements, design infringements and violations of other registered or unregistered third party rights, product liability as well as infringements of the protection of minors, which are asserted against PROTIQ in connection with the provision of the contractual services, in particular the manufacture and delivery of products configured by the customer. The customer shall immediately notify PROTIQ about any claims or possible claims by third parties that become known to him. PROTIQ shall be entitled to take appropriate measures itself to fend off claims by third parties or pursue its rights. The indemnification shall also include the compensation of costs that incur or have incurred to PROTIQ due to legal proceedings/defense.

  4. Conclusion of Agreement and Order

    The conclusion of the Agreement on the production (if applicable) and ordering of a product shall be carried out as follows:

    1. To initiate the ordering process, the customer has to
      • Upload the desired file and make further configuration settings (eg scaling, material selection) in case of individually configured products;
      • Select the respective material in case of standard products with material selection; and
      • Select the desired product in case of standard products without material selection, and then place the configured/desired product in the shopping cart by clicking on the respective button on the offer page.
    2. Before the order regarding the content of the shopping cart is finally sent, the entire content of the order is displayed one more time. The customer can then change his order again.
    3. The customer makes a binding offer to conclude a purchase contract by clicking the “Buy now” button in the shopping cart screen. PROTIQ confirms the receipt of the order by e-mail. As a matter of principle, the confirmation e-mail is not yet the acceptance of the offer of the customer. The purchase contract only comes into being with a separate declaration of acceptance by PROTIQ. Considered as such is also the debit of the selected payment method or the shipment confirmation of the goods (whichever is the first).
    4. In the case of payment methods that are connected with an immediate payment by the customer (such as PayPal, sofortueberweisung.de etc.), the offer by PROTIQ already exists when placing the products on the Additive Manufacturing Platform. The customer accepts this offer to conclude a purchase contract by clicking the “Buy now” button on the shopping basket screen.
  5. Prices and Payment; Retention of Title

    1. The customer shall pay the price shown within the ordering process.
    2. For the payment, the payment methods and delivery options available to the customer are shown in the course of the ordering process.
    3. Payments are due 14 days after receipt of invoice by the customer unless a different deadline has been expressly agreed in the service description. Cash discount is not granted.
    4. The title to the products delivered shall be retained until the purchase price has been paid in full.
  6. Instruction on the Right of Revocation for Consumers

    In the case of contracts against payment, the following revocation instruction shall apply to customers.

    Revocation instruction

    Right of revocation

    You have the right to revoke this contract within 14 days without giving any reason. The revocation period of 14 days begins on the day on which you or a third party nominated by you, who is not the carrier, take/takes the goods into possession.

    of your decision to revoke this contract by means of a clear statement (eg by a letter sent by post, fax or e-mail). You may use the enclosed sample revocation form, but this is not mandatory. To comply with the time limit, it is sufficient if the notification concerning the exercise of the right of revocation is sent before the end of the revocation period.

    Consequences of revocation

    If you revoke this contract, we have to immediately refund all payments we have received from you, including the delivery costs (except for the additional costs that were incurred because you chose a different type of delivery than the least expensive standard delivery offered by us) within 14 days at the latest from the day on which we received the notification of your revocation of this contract. For this refund we will use the same payment method that you used for the original transaction unless we expressly agreed to something else with you; in no case will you be charged for this refund. We may withhold a refund until we have received the returned goods or until you have shown proof that you have sent back the goods, whichever is the earliest. You must send back the goods or hand them over without undue delay and in any event no later than fourteen days from the day on which you informed us about the revocation of this contract. The deadline is met if you return the goods before the period of fourteen days has expired.

    You shall bear the direct costs for returning the goods.

    You shall only be liable for any potential loss of value of the goods if this loss of value can be attributed to a handling of the goods other than what is necessary to ascertain the quality, properties and functionality of the goods.

    Sample revocation form

    If you wish to revoke this contract, please complete this form and return it

    • to PROTIQ GmbH, Flachsmarktstraße 54, 32825 Blomberg, info@protiq.com:

If possible, the goods should be returned to PROTIQ in the original packaging with all accessories.

        1. for own intentional or grossly negligent breach of duty;
        2. for the violation of cardinal obligations (cardinal obligations are such obligations the fulfilment of which actually enables the due and proper performance of the agreement and the observance of which the contractual partner may regularly rely on);
        3. in the event of injury to body, life and health;
        4. in the event of default if a fixed date of delivery and/or fixed date of performance had been agreed;

    2. Exclusive place of jurisdiction for any disputes arising out of or in connection with this Agreement shall be Cologne, provided the customer does not have a general court of jurisdiction in Germany or in another EU member state, has moved his permanent place of residence abroad after these terms of use have become effective or his domicile or usual place of residence is not known at the time legal proceedings are instituted.
