LinkFacts is not, however, obligated to establish and maintain the data connection between your systems and the described delivery point.
Since LinkFacts operates exclusively on LinkFacts’ server or on a third-party server commissioned by LinkFacts, you do not require any rights to use the software and such rights are not granted to you.
Unless otherwise expressly agreed by the parties, the contracted service will not be made available to third parties.
5 – Availability of the Software
LinkFacts points out that limitations or alterations to the services rendered may occur which are beyond its control. These include, but are not limited to, interventions by third parties not operating on behalf of LinkFacts, technical conditions of the Internet over which LinkFacts has no influence, and force majeure. Even the hardware and software and the technical infrastructure that you use may have an impact on the Services. To the extent that such circumstances impact the availability or functionality of the service provided by LinkFacts, it does not impact the contractual compliance of the services rendered.
You are required to promptly notify LinkFacts of any interruption, disruption or corruption of the Software and to provide as accurate information as possible in this regard. If you fail to comply with this obligation, the Civil Code shall apply mutatis mutandis.
LinkFacts reserves the right to change the services offered on its web sites at any time and without notice or to offer different services, unless this is unreasonable for the user.

7 – Data protection, data processing rights, data security
Personal data that you have provided upon registration will only be collected, stored, processed and used by LinkFacts to the extent necessary to fulfill contractual obligations, in particular for the provision and use of the services offered or where you have consented to their use.
LinkFacts undertakes to comply with the relevant data protection provisions. We refer you to our Data Protection Statement, which is available on the LinkFacts website.
With respect to the data you store on the allocated memory space, you are responsible for compliance with the laws applicable in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EC) 2016/679 of 25 May 2018, as well as, where applicable, any other relevant data protection legislation.
If and to the extent that you process (e.g., store) personal data of third parties on IT systems for which LinkFacts is technically responsible, you are solely responsible for ensuring that you comply with the necessary requirements (e.g., consent) pursuant to Article 6 GDPR for lawful data processing. Furthermore, in such cases, a contract will be concluded between you and LinkFacts on the processing of the data (see Art. 28(3) GDPR). Therefore, in the event that you process personal data of third parties using the services offered by LinkFacts, you undertake to inform LinkFacts without delay and to enter into the standard contract for data processing with LinkFacts available on the LinkFacts website under the heading “Data Processing”. The processing of special categories of personal data as defined in Art. 9 GDPR (e.g. health-related data) is strictly prohibited.
8 – Liability for Content, Data and/or User Information
LinkFacts assumes no responsibility for the content, data and/or information made available by LinkFacts users, nor for the content of linked external websites. In particular, LinkFacts does not warrant that such content is accurate, serves any specific purpose, or is capable of serving any specific purpose.
If you become aware that your use of the LinkFacts website is unlawful or in breach of contract (including the use of pseudonyms or misleading identities), we ask that you notify us using the contact form available on the websites.
9 – Customer Service and Support
You may submit questions or statements regarding your contract or our services at any time via the contact form available on the LinkFacts website or by e-mail.
10 – LinkFacts Liability
LinkFacts is liable to you in all cases of contractual and extra-contractual liability for deliberate acts and gross negligence in accordance with the legal provisions on damages or compensation for unnecessary expenses.
The liability of LinkFacts for damages resulting from injury to life, body or health and in accordance with the Product Liability Act as well as the assumption of warranty remains unaffected by the above limitations and exclusions of liability.
If the damage you suffer results from the loss of data, LinkFacts is not liable to the extent that the damage could have been avoided by regular and complete backup of all relevant data. You must make a regular and complete backup of the data yourself or have it made by a third party and are solely responsible for it.
11 – Termination of the contract, reimbursement of costs
The free plan can be terminated at any time without the need to specify the reason. Please inform us by using the contact form available on the LinkFacts website and indicating your username and the email address you have registered on our website.
Non-free plans may be terminated by either you or LinkFacts without stating a reason, upon fourteen (14) business days’ notice to the end of the minimum usage period specified during the registration process or, thereafter, to the end of any extension period. Notice of termination may be submitted using the contact form available on the LinkFacts web site, by e-mail. The notice of termination must indicate the username and email address registered on the LinkFacts websites.
The right of either party to terminate the Agreement for cause remains unaffected. A material reason for termination by LinkFacts exists when the continuation of the contractual relationship until the expiration of the statutory termination period is not reasonable for LinkFacts, taking into account all the circumstances of the particular case and considering the real interests of both parties. Important reasons include the following events:
failure by you to comply with legal provisions;
breach of contractual obligations,
the reputation of the services offered by LinkFacts is tarnished, and not only insignificantly, by you;
you advertise associations, communities, methods or activities that are controlled by safety or youth protection authorities;
you harm one or more other users;
you are a member of a cult or controversial group.
Where there is a significant reason, LinkFacts may impose the following sanctions, regardless of termination:
removal of the content you have uploaded;
issuing a warning;
(temporary) blocking of access to LinkFacts’ services.
In the event of termination of the agreement or blocking of access under this section, your right to reimbursement of fees paid in advance shall cease.
12 – Final Provisions
Amendments and supplements to these contractual conditions must be made in writing to be valid. This applies in particular to an agreement to waive this written form requirement.
Should individual provisions of these contractual conditions be or become invalid, the validity of the remaining provisions shall not be affected. The parties undertake to replace the invalid provision with the valid provision that comes closest to the economic purpose of the invalid provision. The same applies, by analogy, to any loopholes in this Agreement.
LinkFacts reserves the right to change these terms and conditions at any time without giving reasons, unless it is unreasonable for you to do so. We will notify you in a timely manner of any changes to these terms and conditions. In the absence of any objection by you to the validity of the new contractual terms and conditions within 14 days of the notification of the change, the changed contractual terms and conditions will be deemed to have been accepted by you. We will remind you of your right to object and the importance of the objection period in the notice of amendment.
In the absence of an agreement to the contrary, you are entitled to make all declarations to LinkFacts by e-mail, using the appropriate contact form available on our website or by post. LinkFacts is entitled to make representations to you by e-mail or regular mail at the addresses you have provided as your current contact information in your user account.
This agreement is governed exclusively by Luxembourg law. The provisions of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods are not applicable. If you are a consumer and, at the time of the conclusion of this contract, you have your habitual residence in another country, the application of the mandatory legal provisions of that country will not be affected by the choice of law. In all other cases, the relevant legal provisions apply for local and international jurisdiction.
