ARTICLE 6. | SUSPENSION AND TERMINATION
An infringement of the provisions of these general terms and conditions gives VentaVid the right to terminate the Agreement with immediate effect, unless the infringement does not justify termination of the Agreement due to its minor significance.
Furthermore, VentaVid is authorised to suspend the execution of the Agreement or to dissolve the Agreement with immediate effect, if after the signing of the Agreement VentaVid learns of circumstances that provide grounds to fear that the Primary user will not fulfil their obligations.
If the Primary user is in a state of bankruptcy, any seizure of their goods has been made or in cases where the Primary user cannot freely access their assets, VentaVid is entitled to terminate the Agreement with immediate effect, unless the Primary user has already provided adequate security for (due) payments.

ARTICLE 7. | PRICES AND PAYMENTS
All prices stated by VentaVid are exclusive of Value Added Tax / Sales Tax.
With every extension of the Agreement, VentaVid is entitled to change the agreed prices.

In that case, the Primary user is entitled to terminate the Agreement, by means of written cancellation, up until the day that the Agreement is tacitly extended.

VentaVid is not obliged to implement the Agreement before the advance payment has been paid in full. In the case of a Venta50 subscription, the price per video message produced by the user beyond the 50 included, is payable monthly in arrears. In the case of the SMS Module, Approval Code Module and VentaLive, overage / over usage beyond that included in the monthly subscription of each service is payable monthly in arrears.
Payments are made by bank transfer or direct debit. If a transfer has been agreed, payments must be made within twenty one (21) days after the invoice date in the manner prescribed by VentaVid.
If direct debit has been agreed and one or more payments due cannot be collected automatically several times, the Primary user is obliged to pay the amount due by bank transfer in the manner prescribed by VentaVid. In that case, VentaVid is authorised to pass on reasonable administration costs to the Primary user.
If timely payment is not made, the default of the Primary user will be legally effective. From the moment that the default occurs, the Primary user owes an interest of 1% per month on the outstanding amount, with part of a month being considered as a whole month. This interest is calculated up to and including the day that the outstanding amount, including interest, is paid in full. The performance of VentaVid's obligations under this Agreement is conditioned upon the timely payment by the Primary user of all amounts due pursuant to this Agreement.

ARTICLE 8. | LIABILITY AND DISCLAIMER
The User can independently add content to the Software. VentaVid is unable to ascertain the content. The Primary user is therefore fully responsible for the content and legitimacy of the content added by Users to the Software and indemnifies VentaVid from all third party claims in this regard, including claims in relation to copyright or other intellectual property rights of these third parties.
VentaVid is solely responsible for the presence of functionalities within the Software that are explicitly stated in the offer. The absence of functionalities not explicitly mentioned cannot be regarded as a shortcoming of VentaVid and does not give the Primary user the right to terminate the Agreement, or to compensation.
VentaVid strives to make the Software work on all internet browsers, but it is possible that the Software does not work equally well on all internet browsers. Any liability of VentaVid in this regard is excluded.
If VentaVid should be liable for any damage, that liability is, without prejudice to the provisions of Article 5, limited to compensation for direct damage suffered by the Primary user. VentaVid is never liable for indirect damage, including loss of profit, loss suffered and damage as a result of business interruption. Direct damage is exclusively understood to mean: a. the reasonable costs for determining the cause and extent of the damage, insofar as the determination relates to damage within the meaning of these conditions; b. any reasonable costs incurred to have VentaVid's defective performance comply with the Agreement, insofar as these can be attributed to VentaVid; c. reasonable costs incurred to prevent or limit damage, insofar that the Primary user demonstrates that these costs have led to the limitation of direct damage as referred to in these general terms and conditions.
The possible liability of VentaVid is, in any case, limited to the invoice value of the Agreement, to that part of the Agreement to which the liability of VentaVid relates.
All claims and defenses against VentaVid expire after one year.
Barring intent and deliberate recklessness on the part of VentaVid, the Primary user indemnifies VentaVid against all claims from third parties, for whatever reason, with regard to compensation for damage, costs or interest, related to the Software and other services provided by VentaVid.
ARTICLE 9. | INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY AND CONFIDENTIALITY
VentaVid reserves the intellectual property at all times on the Web environment and all Software manufactured and / or made available by it.
VentaVid will never claim ownership of the data that Users have added to the Software. After termination of the Agreement, VentaVid is entitled to delete data entered by the User insofar as it follows from the Agreement that this data is permanently stored on the systems of VentaVid. Before proceeding with this, VentaVid will give the Primary user the opportunity to appropriate this data to the extent that the Primary user does not reasonably have access to this data from other sources.
VentaVid is permitted to take measures at the technical level to protect the Software and Web environment. This protection must prevent misuse or otherwise unlawful use of the Software.
VentaVid will never disclose confidential information of the User to unauthorised third parties, unless the User has explicitly given their permission for the disclosure of this information. Confidential information means information that could reasonably be assumed to be confidential in nature.
ARTICLE 10. | FINAL PROVISIONS

Only the competent court within the district of the location of VentaVid is designated to take cognizance of disputes.
