These Conditions apply by analogy to Contracts accepted by LabelCompliance if the Service is provided without the use of the Website, unless the nature of one or more Articles in these Conditions is incompatible with application by analogy.

Availability of the Website and the Account

4.1 The Client accepts that the Website only contains the functionality and other features the Client finds when the Client uses it (“as available basis”). Labelchecks.com does not guarantee that the Website is always available and is not subject to interruptions or downtime.

4.4 Insofar use is made on the Website of applications or programs of third parties, that use will be subject to the terms and conditions of those third parties instead of the Conditions of the Agreement. Labelchecks.com does not accept any liability for the operation of the third parties’ applications or programs.

5

Contracts and use of the Service

5.1 The Client is granted the right use the Service on the Website. The user right extends to ordering Reports through Labelchecks.com’s Service. The Client should enter Details into the ordering procedure. The Client guarantees that the Details the Client has entered are correct and complete. The Client notifies Labelchecks.com about the type of Report the Client wants. Labelchecks.com does not verify that the Client has selected the correct type of Report. The Client should upload the Client’s Label to the Website. The Client should follow all instructions given by Labelchecks.com carefully. If the Client is in doubt about whether the Client is following the instructions correctly, the Client should get in touch with the help desk. The Client should ensure that the Label complies with all the specifications as indicated on the Website. The Client bears the risk for the consequences of not following the instructions or specifications. In that event, Labelchecks.com is authorised to discontinue the order procedure without giving any explanation and without any obligations to the Client.
5.2 As soon as the Client has completed the entire ordering procedure, the Client will receive a summary of the Details the Client has supplied and a rough indication of the price of generating the Reports by La-belchecks.com. Labelchecks.com can never be bound by the Client to the rough indication of the price and can never be considered to have given the impression that the Contract can be provided for that price. The Client should check the summary of the Details for errors and/or omissions. The Client is responsible for supplying correct and complete Details and for checking them. As soon as the Client has checked the Details and corrected them if necessary, the Client should send the De-tails to Labelchecks.com. Returning the Details only obliges La-belchecks.com to (re)assess the Client’s request. If Labelchecks.com is of the opinion that Labelchecks.com can deliver the Report to the Client, Labelchecks.com will send a quotation for it, subject to contract, according to Article 5.3.
5.3 Labelchecks.com will send confirmation to the Client that La-belchecks.com can send the Client the Report by sending an invoice from Labelchecks.com to the Client’s Account of via email. The invoice contains an offer, subject to contract, by Labelchecks.com for the Client to provide the Contract on the basis of the Details submitted by the Client. Labelchecks.com’s offer will lapse if it is not accepted immediately, unless Labelchecks.com has informed the Client otherwise in writing. Labelchecks.com cannot be bound to execute the Contract after acceptance:
a) If Labelchecks.com invokes Section 6:219, paragraph 2, of the Dutch Civil Code immediately after the Client’s acceptance;
b) if, for any reason, Labelchecks.com cannot successfully invoke Section 6:219, paragraph 2, of the Dutch Civil Code (any more) and Labelchecks.com’s offer contains evident errors or misprints.
As a departure from Section 6:225, paragraph 2, of the Dutch Civil Code, an acceptance that only deviates slightly from Labelchecks.com’s offer will not lead to the formation of the Contract.
5.4 The Contract is formed after acceptance of Labelchecks.com’s offer by the Client, by payment of the full invoice amount. Only if La-belchecks.com has explicitly agreed with the Client that the Client may pay in arrears, the Client should notify Labelchecks.com that the Client accepts Labelchecks.com’s offer. If the Service provided by LabelCompliance without using the Website, the provisions of Article 1 of the General Terms and Conditions Part A apply to the formation of the Contract.
5.5 Labelchecks.com makes every effort to deliver the Reports to the Client within the stated and/or arranged term or, insofar no term is stated or has been arranged, within a reasonable term. The Reports are only de-livered to the Client via the Client’s Account. Labelchecks.com is authorised, but never obliged, to send the Report by email or regular post to the Client. The turnaround time of a Contract depends on several factors and circumstances, such as the quality of the Details, Labels and other information provided by the Client and the Client’s and relevant third parties’ cooperation. A stated and/or arranged term is never a strict deadline and Labelchecks.com will not be in default merely by exceeding that term.
5.6 Labelchecks.com is entitled to transfer the Agreement, a Contract and/or the rights and obligations arising from it to third parties or to con-tract third parties for its execution. Labelchecks.com cannot be held re-sponsible or liable for the execution of (part of) the Agreement and/or Contract by that third party.

6

The Client’s obligations

6.1 The Client agrees to grant and supply to Labelchecks.com all access, assistance, data and materials Labelchecks.com needs to be able to provide the Service, including producing Reports. If the Client fails to do that, there is a chance that Labelchecks.com cannot provide the Service adequately. Moreover, it might lead to higher costs or expenses for the Client.
6.2 The Client is obliged to supply Labelchecks.com with all information, in due time, that Labelchecks.com judges Labelchecks.com will need for the correct execution of the Contract or of which the Client should know that it is necessary for the correct execution of the Contract.
6.3 The Client guarantees the accuracy, completeness and reliability of the Details, Labels and other information supplied to Labelchecks.com, even if that information comes from third parties. If the Details, Labels and/or other information are not accurate, complete and/or reliable (any more) at any time, the Client will immediately do everything necessary to ensure that the Details, Labels and/or other information are accurate, complete and/or reliable once more.
6.4 The Client guarantees that the Client, when using the Service and/or the Website:
I. Takes measures against viruses, Trojans, other forms of computer crime and/or (other) illegal use by third parties;
II. Will not spread any viruses, Trojans, malware or other malevolent codes or files or send spam messages;
III. Will not do anything that could in any way lead to downtime or otherwise adverse effects for the (operation of the) Service.
IV. Will not violate any (Intellectual Property) rights of third parties or otherwise act illegally and/or punishable by law;
V. Shall not act in breach of the Agreement.
6.5 If Labelchecks.com knows or suspects that the Client is acting in breach of the provisions of the Agreements and/or a Contract, Labelchecks.com is entitled to give the Client instructions which the Client is obliged to follow. Labelchecks.com is also entitled to (temporarily) suspend the (access to the) Service and/or to limit the use of the Service without prejudice to Labelchecks.com’s other rights and legal remedies, including Labelchecks.com’s right to claim compensation for damages. The Client’s payment obligation shall remain fully effective in such cases. In that event, Labelchecks.com is also authorised to suspend the execution of Contracts that have already been awarded and/or to terminate the con-tract.

7

Contract extras

7.1 If any changes or additions are made at the Client’s request or that are necessary in Labelchecks.com’s opinion and have an effect on the vol-ume of the work agreed within the framework of the Contract changes, e.g. contract extras, any additional work that arises from that will be re-imbursed in accordance with Labelchecks.com’s rates that are current at the time the work is executed. Insofar a fixed price has been agreed for the Contract, Labelchecks.com shall inform the Client, at the Client’s re-quest, in writing about the financial consequences for the additional work intended in the Article.
7.2 The Client accepts that the arranged or expected time of completion of the Report(s) and the mutual responsibilities of Labelchecks.com and the Client may be affected due to additions or changes to the Contract. The fact that (the demand for) contract extras arise(s) during the execution of the Contract is not a reason for the Client to cancel or dissolve the Contract and/or the Agreement.

8

Payment

8.1 The Client may use the Website free of charge. The compilation of Reports is not free. Prices are given in Euros and do not include VAT or other government levies, unless stated otherwise. Labelchecks.com is always entitled to adjust the prices in accordance with Part A of the General Terms and Conditions.
8.2 The Client may pay the price due by reason of the Contract by means of the options stated on the Website and/or the Client’s Ac-count. The price must be paid in advance, unless otherwise agreed be-tween the Parties.
8.3 If the Parties have agreed on payment in arrears, the payment period is 20 days after the date on the invoice, unless otherwise agreed or otherwise stated on the invoice.
8.4 If Labelchecks.com has not received the (full) payment when that period has expired, the Client is in default with immediate effect without a warning or notice of default being required. As of the time the Client is in de-fault, the Client owes interest amounting to the statutory interest rate for commercial transactions.
8.5 Complaints about invoices and/or the Service do not suspend the Client’s payment obligations.

9

Intellectual Property

9.1 The Intellectual Property Rights to the Service, including the Intellectual Property Rights to the Website and Reports, are the property of La-belchecks.com and/or its licensors. Nothing in the Agreement and/or Contract is intended to serve as a transfer of Intellectual Property Rights to the Client.
9.2 If the Client fully fulfils the Client’s obligations arising from the Agreement and the Contract with Labelchecks.com, Labelchecks.com will grant the Client a limited, personal, revocable, non-exclusive, non-sub-licensable and non-transferable right to use the Service in accordance with the Agreement. Insofar that right is considered a user right to the Reports, that user right is perpetual.
9.3 Notwithstanding anything permitted on the grounds of imperative law or anything necessary for exercising the user right intended in Article 9.2, the Client may not change, publish, multiply, reproduce, decompile or apply reverse engineering to, (parts of) the Service. Furthermore, the Client is not permitted to remove or bypass security measures or technical restrictions (of the use) of the Service.
9.4 All the Client’s Intellectual Property Rights, including, without any limitation, Intellectual Property Rights to the Details and the Label remain the Client’s property. By using the Service, the Client grants La-belchecks.com a royalty-free, unencumbered, sub-licensable, non-exclusive licence for the use and reproduction of the Details and the Label, insofar it is necessary to provide the Service.

11.3 Labelchecks.com and LabelCompliance do not investigate and are not obliged to investigate:
