10. Conclusion of contract and toll-free test phase

  • Contracts are concluded upon user registration. Registration is completed by clicking the registration link within the confirmation email, for instance.

Toll-free accounts and the data they include are only deleted, if they are not activated for at least sixty days. The contractual relationship is repealed retroactively, which leads to no costs for users.
  • The costs of an account upgrade to a fee-based plan are first charged within the following month. For example: should a user create a toll-free account on March 5 and then choose to upgrade to the “SmallOffice” plan on March 10, the first charge for April would be collected on April 1. The month of march would be entirely toll-free.
  • Contract relationships between 42he and users run for indefinite periods of time.

  • The monthly fee for CentralStationCRM services is due at the beginning of every accounting month. Payment is possible by direct debit or by credit card.
  • Users are obligated to ensure their payment accounts are covered. Should payments not be made due to circumstances, which the user is responsible for, 42he may charge the additional costs incurred at the respective amount.
  • In case of a default of payment of more than 14 days, 42he is entitled to deactivate the account of the user until all demands have been met. User data security will remain unaffected.
  • An interruption in the provision of CentralStationCRM services following a payment delay on behalf of the user will not result in a reduction of demands. Compensation on both sides remains possible, if and when all claims are legally binding or undisputed by 42he.

12. Contract termination

  • Users may autonomously terminate contracts within their CentralStationCRM account administration. The period of notice is four weeks at the end of each month.
  • Users may always export their stored data as copies. They are however self-responsible of ensuring that copies of such data are downloaded and secured before the contract period ends.
