1.2 The term 'Client' shall be deemed to mean: a natural person or legal entity with which SoloGigabit C.V. has entered into a subscription.
Article 2 General
2.1 All relations, including future ones, between SoloGigabit C.V. and the Client shall be subject to these General Terms and Conditions, unless explicitly otherwise agreed in writing between the named contract parties.
2.2 These General Terms and Conditions replace (any) General Terms and Conditions drawn up previously by SoloGigabit C.V.
2.3 Each offer made by SoloGigabit C.V. is wholly free of obligation, and can be revoked within seventy days of receipt of the acceptance of such an offer, unless otherwise stated.
2.4 SoloGigabit C.V. reserves the right at all times to amend these General Terms and Conditions unilaterally. Amendments shall come into effect at a time stated in the notification, or, if the notification does not state such a time, 30 days after notification. In the event that the customer does not agree to the amendment, the customer must give notification to this effect in writing within 30 days after the date of notification. In the event that the customer does not respond, the new condition shall come into effect on the date of the new contract extension. Amendments will be made known on the website of SoloGigabit C.V.
Article 3 The Service
3.1 In emergency situations in which SoloGigabit C.V. deems it to be reasonable, it shall be entitled, with or without prior notification to the Client, to make changes to the Service provided by SoloGigabit C.V. or to take other temporary measures which it shall deem necessary at that moment in order to be able to guarantee the continuity of the Service. The Client will be notified to this effect as quickly as possible.
3.2 The Client is at all times responsible for the management of its data. SoloGigabit C.V. therefore assumes that the Client will take care of the backup of its own data.
3.3 SoloGigabit C.V. cannot be held liable for any damage or costs incurred by the Client as a result of the measures referred to in paragraphs 1 and 2 of this article. In the event that such measures are taken, the Client will not be entitled to withdraw unilaterally from its obligations.
Article 4 Fees
4.1 Unless otherwise agreed, the usual payments and prices applied by SoloGigabit C.V. shall apply to all relations between SoloGigabit C.V. and the Client. Information on the applicable fees will be sent to the Client on request.
4.2 SoloGigabit C.V. is entitled to unilaterally adjust the prices of all its products and services. If possible, the Client will be notified to this effect in writing one month before the introduction of the adjustments.
Article 5 Payment
5.1 Depending on that which has been agreed between the parties, the subscription fees must be paid one month or one quarter in advance. SoloGigabit C.V. debits the monthly amounts a maximum of five days before the start of the month. In the event that SoloGigabit C.V. has not received a payment from the Client after the end of this period, or the payment is reversed, a reminder is sent, which must be deemed to be a notice of default. In the event that no payment has been received after the reasonable period set in the reminder, the Client will be in default. The Client shall not be entitled to any deduction, discount or compensation.
5.2 In the event that the Client is in default in the manner referred to in paragraph 1 of this article, or fails in any other way in the fulfilment of one or more of its obligations arising from the agreement or from these General Terms and Conditions, all reasonable costs incurred in obtaining settlement out-of-court shall be borne by the Client, without prejudice to the consequences set by law of such defaults.
5.3 Payments made by the Client shall at all times first serve as payment for any interest and costs owed, and secondly for payable invoices which have been outstanding the longest. This also applies in the event that the Client states that the payment relates to a later invoice.
Article 6 Security and personal data
6.1 By entering into the agreement with the Client, SoloGigabit C.V. has entered into an obligation to ensure the security of the Service; in the event of insufficient security, however, it cannot be held liable for any loss suffered by the Client or by a third party as a result of this.
6.2 In the event that the Client notices or suspects that third parties have gained improper access to the Service, it shall notify SoloGigabit C.V. to this effect in writing within five working days. SoloGigabit C.V. cannot be held liable for any loss occurring as a result of such improper use of the Service.

8.1 SoloGigabit C.V. cannot be held liable for direct and/or indirect loss incurred by the Client as a result of an (attributable) failure to comply with any agreement or any other obligation of SoloGigabit C.V. and vis-à-vis the Client which is not the result of intent or gross negligence on the part of SoloGigabit C.V. Liability is limited in any event to direct damage to goods and direct damage resulting in death or injury, and up to a maximum amount of the amount received by SoloGigabit C.V. for the Services provided, with a maximum of €4500.

8.4 The Client indemnifies SoloGigabit C.V. against all claims by third parties relating to the use of the Service by the Client and/or insufficient compliance by the Client with any obligation to SoloGigabit C.V., whether or not said obligation ensues from these General Terms and Conditions.
Article 9 Force majeure
9.1 SoloGigabit C.V. cannot be held liable in the event that a failure to comply is the result of circumstances beyond its control.
