  2. The service runs without exception on hosted servers of certified server farms located in Germany.

  6. There is no claim to a permanent and uninterrupted availability of the service. However, the operator shall endeavour to achieve the highest possible availability and to remedy faults as quickly as possible. If these terms of use are violated, the operator is entitled to temporarily or permanently discontinue the service in whole or in part.
  7. The operator determines the InDesign version to be used, which is used by the service on the server side. To ensure downward compatibility, the service provides IDML files that can also be opened in older InDesign versions.

  9. Cookies are used for temporary storage of user-specific settings. The use of cookies is agreed with the use of the service.

  11. The service is stopped for system maintenance activities, for performing checks, or for installing new program versions.

Planned maintenances are announced by email and on the website.

In this regard, the customer also assumes the costs of the legal defence of the operator including all court and attorney costs.
