Should an advertising agent become the contracting party the advertising agency must be specified by name. The provider reserves the right to demand proof of mandate.

3. Advertisements for goods or services of more than one advertising agent or other advertiser within an advertising campaign (such as banners /wallpaper – or voucher advertisements ..) require an additional agreement concluded in writing or by email.

§ 5. Additions to the contract
The signing of the contract awards the client the right, subject to available capacity, to release additional advertising media not stipulated in the contract so long as this occurs within the time period agreed upon or as stipulated by paragraph 4.

§ 6 Deadline postponement, cancellation
1. Postponing insertion dates free of charge is only possible ten work days prior to the next appointed deadline and is subject to available capacity and the approval of WeSendit.

2. Cancellation of the contract is only possible ten work days prior to the appointed appearance of the advertising media. Cancellation is to be done exclusively in writing and directed to advertisting@wesendit.com specifying campaign information.

§ 7 Abatement refund
1. Should a contract not be fulfilled due to circumstances beyond the control of WeSendit, the client is required, notwithstanding any further statutory duties, to refund to WeSendit the amount corresponding to the difference between the guaranteed and the actual abatement.

2. The actual release of advertising media within one year, if he, at the beginning of the period, signed a contract which, owing to the price list, gave him the right to an abatement in the first place. The right to abatement is nullified if it is not asserted three months prior to the one year deadline.

§ 8 Furnishing of advertising media
1. The client ensures delivery of complete, prompt and error-free advertising media in the proper form. Prompt is defined as delivery at least five work days prior to the campaign start date in the case of static, animated graphics / videos etc.

§ 10 Authority of refusal of advertising media
1. WeSendit reserves the right to refuse or block advertising contracts as well as single releases within the framework of a deal if their content infringes upon the laws or official regulations, if the rights of third parties were upheld in a grievance case, or if the publication is unacceptable to WeSendit for reasons of content, origin or technical form. The same applies to cases in which the Target -URL infringes upon the aforementioned reasons for refusal.

2. The client will be informed in writing of the rejection by WeSendit. In this case the client has the right to deliver an edited version of the advertising media to be activated or the target-URL to be linked to. The client can be billed for the ensuing costs proven by WeSendit. Should this substitute or new address not be delivered to WeSendit promptly prior to the originally stipulated insertion date WeSendit retains the claim to payment even if the activation of the advertising media does not occur.  

3. WeSendit has the right to temporarily discontinue the activation of the advertising media should there be reasonable suspicion of the legality of the content of the website to which the advertisement is to be linked. WeSendit will inform the client regarding the discontinuation and the client must then immediately remove the illegal content or show or prove its legality. WeSendit can offer the client to replace the advertising media with an alternative advertising media and/or a hyper link to another website. Insofar as this entails further costs, WeSendit may, with proper proof, bill the client for these. The discontinuation is to be repealed as soon as the suspicions are refuted.

4. WeSendit has the right to recall active advertising media if the client makes any fundamental changes to the content of the linked website without prior consent. In this case the client is not entitled to any replacement without charge, whereas WeSendit retains the claim to the stipulated payment.   

5. WeSendit explicitly reserves the right to refuse such advertising activations which relate to the use of value-added service numbers, especially for so-called “dialers” using 0190 or 0900 numbers.

§ 11 Rights guarantee
The client guarantees that he has acquired the necessary rights to all advertising media to be activated. Within the framework of the advertising contract, the client frees WeSendit from all third party claims which could ensue from infringements on legal regulations. Furthermore, WeSendit is exempt from any costs of necessary legal representation. The client is obliged to support WeSendit in good faith against third parties with information and documentation at the legal proceedings.  

§ 12 WeSendit guarantees
1. WeSendit guarantees the best possible rendering of the advertising media in accordance with the current technical standards within the scope of the foreseeable requirements. However, the client is aware that, with the present technology, the creation of a completely error-free program is not possible.

2. In case of insufficient rendering of the advertising media the client has claim to a reduction in payment or an acceptable replacement advertisement only, however, to the degree that the advertising media was affected. In the case of failure or unacceptability of the replacement advertisement the contracting party has the right to a reduction in payment or a rescission of the contract.

3. Should any defects in the advertising data not be apparent the client has no claims in case of insufficient dissemination. This applies equally to errors in repeated advertising activations if the client does not call attention to the error prior to the dissemination of the following advertisement activation.

§ 13 Disruptions of service
Should the execution of the contract fail due to circumstances beyond WeSendit's control (due to software or other technical reasons for example), especially computer failure, acts of god, strike, due to legal regulations, disruptions in third party's areas of responsibility (providers, for example), network providers or service providers or for comparable reasons, the execution of the contract will be re-executed when possible. WeSendit retains the right to payment if the re-execution following elimination of the disturbance occurs within an appropriate time period acceptable to the contracting party.

§ 14 Price lists
1. The price list published at the time the contract was awarded, which is apparent in a TKP (CPM) model, applies.  Changes in price made by WeSendit are, however, only effective when they have been publicised or announced by the client at least one month prior to the dissemination of the advertising media. In the case of an increase in price the client has the right to withdraw. The right of withdrawal must be carried out no later than 14 days after receiving the notification of the price increase.

2. Refunds are determined by the respective valid price list and the order size of the campaign. Advertising agencies and any other advertising agents are obliged to adhere to the price lists from WeSendit in their offers, contracts and billings to advertisers.

§ 15 Payment modalities / Activation of advertising media
