5.5.           Fairtix may make changes to the content or scope of the SaaS-service or continue the performance of the SaaS-service using a new, modified and/or further developed version of the Ticketshop; however, this is a choice made by Fairtix and not a right of the Client.

Article 8 -    Prices Payment

8.1.           The Client shall pay the prices per User stated in the Order for the SaaS-services based on the actual use. The actual number of Users shall be calculated based on the number of transactions and shall not be linked to the number of unique, named, individual users.

After settlement, the amounts received via the Foundation will be transferred to the Client’s bank account at the time and frequency indicated in the Order or otherwise agreed in writing between Parties. These amounts shall not be due to the Client nor shall Fairtix be obligated to transfer these fees until the Client has successfully completed the onboarding process with the Foundation.

8.3.           The Client must complete the onboarding process with the Foundation and is responsible to keep the company information in the Foundation system up to date at all times.

Fairtix will provide the Client prior notice of the price adjustment.

8.10.         The Client guarantees that the legal relationship between the Client and the User explicitly permits that payments made by Users for Tickets can and may be received via the Foundation’s bank account. The Client is obliged to inform a (potential) User in a legally valid and conclusive manner about the manner in which the User - through the Ticketshop and the Foundation - makes payments to the Client, without any contractual relationship arising between Fairtix and/or the Foundation on the one hand and the User on the other for the Event.

8.11.         Complaints concerning the level of the offset amount and/or the quality of the service(s) provided must be made to Fairtix within 30 days of the payment of the balance after offset, in the absence of which the Client shall be deemed to have agreed with (the correctness of) the offset amount.

Client shall not cause Fairtix to process any special categories of personal data from the User.
