The Customer or its contracting parties shall be the owners and controllers of any and all
Customer Data. Deveo does not form any registers from Customer Data. Should any personal
data be processed, the processing is done by the Customer with the Cloud Service. If Deveo
should be considered processing such data, then it shall be done on the behalf, and by the
order, of the Customer. The Customer is the controller of any personal data contained in

Deveo may, for the purposes of maintaining network and data security or as required by law,
monitor and record the Internet traffic to and from the Cloud Service.
The Customer shall be responsible for all Customer Data and the usage of Customer Data in
the Cloud Service. Apart from the right to monitor Customer Data for content formats outside

monitor the content or quality of the Customer Data. Customer represents and warrants that it

control, which he or she could not have reasonably taken into account at the time of the
conclusion of the agreement, and whose consequences he or she could not reasonably have
avoided or overcome. Strike, lockout, boycott and other industrial action shall constitute a force
majeure event also when the party concerned is the target or a party to such an action.
Malfunctioning of the general communication networks or the Internet shall constitute a force
majeure event.
Denial of services attacks (whether distributed or not) and similar malicious acts shall constitute
a force majeure event provided that Deveo has implemented reasonable and appropriate
protection against distributed and non-distributed denial of service attacks. In the event the
intrusion protection system (IPS) of Deveo classifies network traffic as being attacking or
malicious in nature and, as a result, blocks network traffic, such blocking shall not be
considered to cause the Cloud Service being Unavailable, but as an accepted property of the
service done to limit the effect of attacks and other malicious acts.
7/9 A force majeure event suffered by a subcontractor of a party shall also discharge such party
from liability, if subcontracting from other source cannot be made without unreasonable costs
or significant loss of time.
Either party shall without delay inform the other party of a force majeure event in writing. The
party shall correspondingly inform the other party of the termination of the force majeure

terminate the Subscription and receive compensation for the remainder of the Subscription
Period, including such consecutive Downtime for which the Customer has already paid. In
relation to availability of the Cloud Service, there is no other remedy for the Customer than
what is agreed in this paragraph.

Deveo promptly within seven days of the Customer becoming aware of the lack or error, in
order for the client to be entitled to a remedy for such shortcoming or error. Deveo shall take
all reasonable steps to correct any known lacks or errors within the next seven days. In the
