5.1 The Customer shall pay to the Provider the remuneration regulated in the contract plus value added tax at the statutory rate.

In case of justified premature termination of the contract, the customer is not entitled to a refund of the fee or any part thereof.

5.3 The area data for the storage compartments are used to measure the compensation for the Provider’s custodial services and are therefore only approximate measurements. Actual deviations from the area data of the storage compartment compared to the data on the website do not lead to a change in the fee, provided that this deviation does not exceed 20%.
5.4 The Supplier shall have a right of retention to the items brought in. If the Customer is in arrears with payments, the Provider may deny the Customer access to the premises and/or the storage compartment until the arrears have been settled in full. This does not release the customer from paying outstanding claims of the provider. In the event that the customer is in default of payment, processing fees of € 5.50 (e.g. writing of reminder letters) and interest on arrears of 12% per annum are agreed. Likewise, any collection costs (e.g. collection costs or costs for legal representation) shall be borne by the customer.
5.5 The Customer shall immediately reimburse all bank charges incurred by the Provider due to revocation or non-payment of direct debits.
5.6 The parties hereby expressly agree on value stability of the remuneration. The starting point for value protection is the index figure at the signing date. The figure resulting from a change in the index forms the new starting point for calculating further valorizations. The figure is adjusted at the end of each contract year in accordance with changes in the index and is valid for the following contract year. The index used is the 2015 consumer price index as announced by STATISTIK AUSTRIA Bundesanstalt Statistik Österreich. If the consumer price index is no longer published, it shall be replaced by the index that most closely corresponds to it. A decrease of the remuneration below the contractually agreed amount is excluded.
6.1 The Customer shall pay the Provider a deposit as security for all claims arising from this Agreement, including damages, no later than upon handover of the Storage Compartment. Deposits or parts of deposits used up by utilization shall be replenished by the customer without delay.

7.1 The Customer is not permitted to set off any claims on its part against the Provider’s claims under this Agreement or otherwise or to make deductions from payments owed. The customer has no right of retention or security interest.
8.1 The customer and in accordance with point 8.2. authorized persons have access to the premises and the storage compartment during opening hours. The opening hours may be adjusted by the Provider with prior 14-day notice on the website or by means of a notice in the entrance area, without the Customer being able to derive any legal consequences therefrom, provided that this does not lead to an unreasonable restriction of the Customer. Changes that become necessary due to official requirements are in any case reasonable.
8.2 As a matter of principle, only the Customer shall be permitted to enter the premises and the storage compartment. Other persons may enter the premises accompanied by the customer or with a written and/or digital legitimation. The Provider may require or check the credentials of any person who wishes to enter the premises and, if such credentials cannot be presented, expel the person from the premises.
8.3 The customer cannot derive any claims from temporary access disruptions to the storage compartment, for example due to failure of the operating software, or from disruptions to the energy supply. However, the provider will make every effort to quickly resolve the access or disruption.

In this case, the customer is obliged to vacate the originally used storage compartment within ten days and to move the brought-in items to the other storage compartment. If the Customer does not comply with this request in due time, the Provider shall be entitled to open the storage compartment and move the brought-in items at the Customer’s expense and risk. In this case all conditions of the contract remain valid.
10.1 The Customer shall be entitled to use the storage compartment exclusively for the storage/ safekeeping of non-dangerous items which are either its property or over which it is authorized to dispose.

– Valuables, such as cash, savings books, jewelry, securities;

– Items that cannot withstand normal fluctuations in temperature and humidity;

If the Customer or persons attributable to the Customer (such as, in particular, persons who have been granted digital access rights by the Customer, employees and other staff, customers, visitors, etc.) continue to violate the smoking ban despite a single warning, the Customer shall pay the Provider a strict penalty of Euro 200 per violation, or Euro 400 per violation in the event of a repeat offense.
10.6 Any structural or other changes to the storage compartment are prohibited and may only be carried out with the prior written consent of the Provider in each individual case. This includes any attachment to the walls, ceilings or floors, or the application of paint. The Provider may also refuse this consent without stating reasons; consent granted does not release the Customer from the obligation to restore the original condition upon termination of the usage agreement. Approved investments become the property of the provider without compensation.
10.7 The Customer shall comply with the fire protection regulations and the relevant official requirements (max. fire load). The Customer confirms to have been sufficiently informed by the Provider about the relevant provisions; in case of doubt about the permissibility of the storage of certain goods, the Customer shall inquire in writing with the Provider.

In the event of a violation despite a reminder from the Provider, the Customer shall pay to the Provider a strict penalty in the amount of Euro 200 per violation, or Euro 400 in the event of a repeat violation. This shall not affect the assertion of any additional cleaning costs incurred.

The liability sum applies to all items brought in and taken over by the provider per usage contract in each case for the entire term.

Liability for damage or loss in the event of natural disasters, acts of war, civil unrest and other cases of force majeure or accident is excluded.
12.3 The Provider shall be liable to the Customer without limitation for damages caused to the Customer by intentional or grossly negligent conduct of the Provider’s bodies and employees or other persons attributable to the Provider (§ 1313a ABGB). Other claims for damages of the customer against the provider are excluded, whereby personal injuries are not covered by this liability regulation.

15.1 Upon termination of the contractual relationship, the Customer shall remove all of its items from the storage compartment and hand them over to the Provider cleaned and in the same orderly condition as at the beginning of the contract, but taking into account ordinary wear and tear caused by use for the intended purpose.

– remove these items and store them in another warehouse selected by the Provider at the Customer’s expense,
– or under threat and setting of a reasonable grace period
– Sell such items on behalf of the Customer and hold the proceeds for the account of the Customer after deducting all outstanding claims, costs and expenses; or
– dispose of such items if and to the extent that storage and/or private sale is not economically expedient or possible due to the low value and/or perishability and/or other reason.
16.1 The contractual relationship in question shall be governed primarily by the Agreement together with the General Terms and Conditions and, subsidiarily, by the relevant provisions of the Austrian General Civil Code (Allgemeines Bürgerliches Gesetzbuch, ABGB), in particular with regard to the safekeeping agreement.
16.2 If any provision of these General Terms and Conditions is invalid or unenforceable, the remaining part of such provision and the Agreement shall remain unaffected and in full force and effect.

16.3 If the contract is not signed by a legal representative (managing director, board of directors, etc.) and/or one or more authorized signatories on the part of the Customer, whose power of attorney is/are registered in the commercial register at the time of signing the contract, the Customer undertakes to provide the Provider, without being requested to do so, with a copy of a proper written proof of representation (power of attorney) of the respective signing persons. Otherwise, the contract shall be deemed not to have been concluded.
16.4 The instructions of the Provider’s employees shall be followed and the Customer shall take note of any house rules.
