Subject of this contract is the granting of a license right to the software „visionar app“ for a fee and the granting of rights to use the web-based service “visionar” including the associated user documentation (https://docs.visionar.com). As such, it is a full-service solution for augmented reality. Integrated web-based tools allow for content to be uploaded and AR apps to be created. Thus, videos, advertising subjects, links and sounds can be linked to a pre-defined target image.
The software product and the user documentation are delivered online upon conclusion of the contract. The source code is not subject of this contract.
A) Scope of application
1. The following terms and conditions apply to all services offered by visionar GmbH and govern their use.
2. By placing an order, the customer expressly accepts these terms and conditions.
B) Registration / conclusion of contract
1. To use the services of visionar an order and a registration at www.visionar.com are required. The order is an offer by the customer to visionar to conclude a contract with the customer.
2. The customer is obliged to provide truthful and complete information when ordering and registering. Visionar reserves the right to check the correctness of information provided by the customer and to terminate the business relationship prematurely in the event that untrue information has been provided.
3. There is no right to conclude a contract. Visionar is entitled to refuse the conclusion of a contract without giving reasons.
4. When ordering and registering at www.visionar.com a confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address provided by the customer to confirm the registration and the conclusion of the contract. Only with the confirmation of the activation links sent to the customer the registration process is complete. If the customer has not received a confirmation e-mail within 24 hours after submitting the offer, he can contact visionar via the e-mail address provided and visionar will try to find the error in the registration process as quickly as possible and offer a solution.
5. The confirmation by visionar (acceptance of the customer’s offer) creates a contractual relationship between visionar and the customer which is governed by the provisions of these terms and conditions.
6. After activation visionar’s services shall be available to the customer and the customer shall receive the login data (URL, password, login ID) to his user account (“account”) with which he can log on.

If and as long as obligations cannot be met in due time or in an orderly manner due to force majeure, such as war, terrorism, natural disasters, fire, strike, lockout, embargo, sovereign intervention, loss of power supply, loss of means of transport, loss of telecommunication networks or data lines, legal changes affecting the services after conclusion of the contract or other non-availability of products, this shall not constitute a breach of contract.

The customer is obliged to immediately report to visionar any suspicion that his access data or other confidential information may have become known to unauthorized third parties. The customer shall be liable for damages incurred by visionar due to inadequate confidentiality of the access data by the customer or due to them being passed on to third parties, due to late notification of a corresponding suspicion that data may have become known to unauthorized third parties or due to the failure to secure his end devices and systems.
7. The customer acknowledges that
a. all ownership rights to the server belong exclusively to visionar. The customer has no rights to it and also no right to access the premises in which the servers are located and no right to access them;

Should visionar be informed of any unlawful activity on the part of the customer in the software, the provider’s right to block or delete the software in accordance with § 16 of the E-Commerce Act for the purpose of excluding liability shall remain unaffected. The customer shall not be entitled to any compensation from visionar.
