Contents and quality of intelliServiceNet as well as type and scope of the services to be rendered by us in connection therewith, if applicable, result conclusively from the respective product description and the present terms of use. Unless oth-erwise stipulated in the respective product description or these terms of use, the following shall apply:

      1. We take appropriate measures and security precautions to avoid damaging ef-fects of our services on the customer’s user environment and to ensure ade-quate data security.

      2. Information on our services on websites, in applications (e.g. mobile apps), in catalogues, general product descriptions, data sheets, plans, drawings, in par-ticular information on availability, functionality, performance data, etc. shall only be legally binding if the product-specific conditions expressly refer to these or if we have otherwise expressly confirmed them in writing.

      5. The software and algorithms used to evaluate the raw data shall evaluate them on the basis of certain methods which may be revised at any time. The resulting data evaluations and the results displayed to the customer are largely based on the configurations of the relevant machines, systems and tools and the settings selected by the customer. The evaluation process carried out on this basis, like any scientific method, are subject to natural limitations and do not permit any final binding recommendations for action. intelliServiceNet is only intended as a support or aid and cannot replace an independent examination and/or a criti-cal judgement by the customer and its authorized users as to whether and which organizational and technical measures are to be taken with regard to the use and operation of machines, plants and tools and the production processes of the customer. In particular, we do not carry out any legal checks as to whether the measures planned by the customer on the basis of our services are lawful, e.g. with regard to data protection or labour law aspects. The customer is solely responsible for the use of intelliServiceNet.
    2. We are constantly striving to improve intelliServiceNet. It may be necessary to update intelliServiceNet with new versions from time to time. This usually takes place automatically, without the customer’s consent being obtained or the custom-er being made aware of this separately. The service usage rights acquired by the customer remain unaffected by this.
