6.1.    Whitepaper, podcasts and videos: The contract is concluded for a period of one month and ends automatically thereafter. At the end of the contract period, the respective content will be moved to the archive of the website brauwelt.com and can still be found via the search function.
6.2.    Banner: The contract is concluded for a period of one month and ends automatically thereafter.
6.3.    Each party’s right of extraordinary termination without notice for good cause remains unaffected. A good cause is deemed to be the case, in particular, if:

-    The Client violates his obligations according to § 7.1.


§7 Client obligations
7.1.    The Client is responsible for ensuring that the content does not violate any laws, third-party rights, common decency or the interests of Fachverlag Hans Carl. The Client also assures that the content is not intentionally misleading. The aforementioned obligations are essential contractual obligations.
7.2.    Insofar as contents of the Client contain recordings of persons, in particular video, image or voice recordings, the Client shall ensure that the legal requirements for publication are met. This includes in particular the transfer of the necessary copyrights to the content to Fachverlag Hans Carl and the permissibility of the processing of the data under data protection law. If consent is required for this in accordance with the German Art Copyright Act (KUG) or the Basic Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Client shall obtain and document the necessary consents. Upon request, the Client shall immediately submit the documentation of the consents to Fachverlag Hans Carl.
7.3.   If the content of the Client contains personal data, for example in the case of video or voice recordings of persons, the Client shall ensure that the persons concerned have been informed in accordance with Art. 13 DSGVO about the data processing in the context of the publication of the content at Fachverlag Hans Carl before content is transmitted to Fachverlag Hans Carl. Upon request, the Client shall immediately submit proof of the information to Fachverlag Hans Carl.  
7.4.    Insofar as claims are asserted against Fachverlag Hans Carl by third parties with reference to the infringement of their own rights by content of the customer, the customer shall indemnify Fachverlag Hans Carl against all justified claims. This also includes the assumption of reasonable costs of a legal defense against the claims raised upon first request.
7.5.    The client is obliged to provide the data for the creation of whitepapers, podcasts, videos and advertising banners no later than four working days before the agreed publication date. The current "Technical Requirements" of Fachverlag Hans Carl must be observed in this regard. If the data is provided late or does not comply with the publisher's specifications and if, as a result, publication cannot take place in an orderly and timely manner, the client's payment obligation shall remain unaffected.
7.6.    The client undertakes to ensure that the transmitted data is free of harmful code, such as viruses and Trojans, by means of state-of-the-art protection programs.

§8 Rights of use
The Client grants Fachverlag Hans Carl all rights necessary for the use and order-related publication of the content, in particular the right of storage, duplication, publication, digitization, public accessibility as well as the right to edit, as far as is necessary for the execution of the contract. This also includes the advertising right for the purpose of self-promotion, such as in the context of a reference archive or for presentations.

§9 Deletion, interruption of content, other measures
9.1.    If concrete evidence exists that
-   content is in violation of the General Terms and Conditions or legal provisions,
-   content is being used for improper purposes,
Fachverlag Hans Carl shall be entitled to delete all or part of the published content or to interrupt, delay or not execute the publication. The Client has no right to performance or reimbursement of costs.
9.2.    Fachverlag Hans Carl reserves the right to make the content available only within the scope of technical and operational possibilities. Fachverlag Hans Carl is committed to providing its services in a manner that is as disruption-free as possible.

§10 Liability
10.1.    Fachverlag Hans Carl shall be liable for intent and gross negligence. If the claims are based on a grossly negligent breach of duty, liability shall be limited to foreseeable losses that typically occur.
10.2.    Furthermore, Fachverlag Hans Carl shall be liable for the negligent breach of duties, the fulfilment of which is essential for the proper execution of the contract, the breach of which endangers the achievement of the contractual purpose and the compliance with which the users as clients may regularly rely on.
10.3.    In the case of a grossly negligent breach of duty as well as in the event of a violation of cardinal obligations, however, Fachverlag Hans Carl shall only be liable for the foreseeable, contract-type damage.
