Last updated: June 16, 2023
1. Scope & Contractual Partner
1.1. These Terms of Service (ToS) apply to all contracts concluded between ImageTwin and your company or institution (“Customer“), in particular to orders placed through our website (www.imagetwin.ai). Deviating provisions shall only apply if they have been agreed upon in writing between ImageTwin and the Customer. The Customer agrees that in case of doubt, ImageTwin’s ToS shall be applicable, even if the Customer’s terms and conditions / terms of service remain unchallenged.
1.2. Contractual partner of the customer is
ImageTwin AI GmbH (in short “ImageTwin” or “we“)
1140 Vienna, Austria
Firm Registration No. 575102p (Commercial Court Vienna)
1.3. Contractual partner of ImageTwin (customer) is basically the company in whose name the order is placed. By indicating his offer, the customer confirms to be an entrepreneur in the sense of § 1 of the Austrian Commercial Code (UGB). Should it turn out otherwise, ImageTwin shall be entitled to withdraw from the contract at any time.
1.4. Subject to Change of ToS: ImageTwin is entitled to update and adjust the ToS (“Amendment”). This applies especially in case of changes or extensions of the ordered assortment. ImageTwin shall inform the customer at least two weeks before the planned change. If the customer objects to the planned change in writing within these two weeks, ImageTwin may either continue the contractual relationship on the basis of the previous ToS or terminate it (extraordinary termination). In case of extraordinary termination, the customer shall be reimbursed aliquot for any unused scan options (cf. section 3.1 and 3.2).
1.5. Legal Succession: Rights and obligations under this Agreement shall pass to any legal successor of ImageTwin, unless ImageTwin or the legal successor declares otherwise. This applies in particular in case of sale of ImageTwin. The customer already gives his consent to this in advance.
1.6. Subcontractor: ImageTwin is entitled to assign the execution of the service/maintenance contract with all rights and obligations to third parties, whereby ImageTwin remains the sole contractual partner.
1.7. Place of performance: The place of performance shall be the Austrian registered office of ImageTwin.

2.2. The sending of an acknowledgement of receipt by ImageTwin does not constitute an acceptance of the customer’s order by ImageTwin. A contract is only concluded with the explicit acceptance by ImageTwin (e.g. sending of an invoice, debiting of the amount owed, sending of an order confirmation, activation of the scanning option on the website).
2.3. Unless otherwise agreed, ImageTwin shall be entitled to charge a reasonable fee for individual cost estimates.
3. Service packages, contract term & ordinary termination & service months

Scanning opportunities not used during this year will expire. Additional scans will be charged individually at the price specified in the service agreement.
3.2. As part of the “One Time Plan”, the customer acquires the right to perform the maximum number of scans listed in the respective service package for a maximum period of 2 years by making a one-time payment. Scan options not used during these 2 years expire.
3.3. A “scan” means that either 1 PDF or 25 individual images can be scanned.
3.4. Each annual Subscription is automatically renewed for a further year if it is not terminated in writing with two weeks’ notice to the expiry of the original Subscription (ordinary termination).

4.1. Prices: In case of doubt, all prices are net prices plus the statutory value added tax.

4.3. Any objections to the invoicing or price adjustment (item 4.2) shall be communicated to ImageTwin in writing within 7 days from the date of invoicing, otherwise the invoice and price adjustment shall be deemed accepted.

4.5. Additional scans beyond the purchased quota will be billed quarterly according to the applicable rates.
4.6. Default interest & collection costs: In case of late payment, default interest in the amount of 12% p.a. will be charged. ImageTwin reserves the right to claim further damages. In addition, the customer shall bear the costs arising from the necessary intervention of a lawyer according to the Austrian Lawyers’ Fees Act (RATG) or the lawyer’s fees appropriate at the customer’s
4.7. The application of § 934 of the Austrian Civil Code (ABGB) (reduction by more than half) is excluded by mutual agreement.
5. Right of termination on the part of ImageTwin
5.1. ImageTwin reserves the right to terminate the contract extraordinarily under observance of a 4-week notice period, if an economically reasonable continuation of the contract is no longer given for ImageTwin (e.g. due to increase of internal costs etc.) or ImageTwin does not continue to process individual business fields or geographical areas for e.g. strategic or other economic reasons. In case of such extraordinary termination on the part of ImageTwin, the customer shall be reimbursed on a pro rata basis for any unused scan options (cf. items 3.1 and 3.2). The customer may not derive any other claims against ImageTwin from such extraordinary termination.
6. Extraordinary termination & consequences of early termination of contract

6.2. In case of justified extraordinary termination on the part of ImageTwin and in case of unjustified premature termination by the customer, the customer will be refunded one quarter of the value of the not yet used scanning possibilities. The remaining amount will be retained by ImageTwin as liquidated damages.
7. Uploads, Intellectual Property Rights and Customer Liability
7.1. The files to be uploaded by the customer must meet the respective requirements in terms of size. The size of the uploaded file per scan is limited to 50 pages or 25 images.

7.2. The customer guarantees that the files uploaded by him and their contents do not violate any third party rights (e.g. copyright) and do not violate any legal requirements (e.g. racist or otherwise prohibited contents). The customer guarantees that he is authorized to upload the respective files and their contents to ImageTwin. The customer shall indemnify and hold ImageTwin harmless in this respect.
7.3. Breaches of such obligations and warranties shall constitute grounds for extraordinary termination on the part of ImageTwin.
7.4. The customer has to keep his access data including the password confidential. He shall indemnify and hold ImageTwin harmless in case of misuse of his account for which he is responsible.

Unless a warranty can be excluded due to performance, the provisions regarding the statutory warranty shall apply, whereby the period for asserting any defects against ImageTwin shall be reduced to six months. The customer has to prove that the defect already existed at the time of performance (exclusion of § 924 Allgemeines Bürgerliches Gesetzbuch – ABGB) and has to inform ImageTwin about it immediately in writing. In this context, ImageTwin shall not be liable for the correctness of any results of the image matching.

This applies in particular also in case of defective service provision or in case of a temporary disturbance or malfunction of the website of ImageTwin.
8.4. If – for whatever case – a penalty has been agreed at the expense of ImageTwin, it is subject to the judicial right of moderation and the assertion of a claim for damages exceeding the penalty is excluded by mutual agreement.

8.6. Any recourse claims made against ImageTwin under the title “product liability” within the meaning of the Austrian Product Liability Act shall be excluded, unless the person entitled to recourse proves that the defect was caused within the sphere of ImageTwin and was at least caused by gross negligence.
9. Offsetting and retention
9.1. A set-off against claims of ImageTwin with counterclaims – of whatever kind – is excluded.
9.2. Justified complaints do not entitle the customer to retain the entire invoice amount, but only an appropriate part of it.
