RN offers a number of software applications which are all governed by these Terms and Conditions, the “RN Applications. Details of the scope of Services and Applications will be stated in the framework agreement, order or proposal.
RN shall deliver the customised Application or product (“Customised Application” or “Customised Product”), Documentation and the Services to the Clients in accordance with this Agreement. The Client shall pay the price in accordance with the Agreement.
Customised Application means any RN application developed or adjusted by RN specifically for the Client as further described in the Agreement.
RN shall develop the Customised Application and make the modifications to the Customised Application in accordance with the requirements of the Specification.
RN shall use best endeavours (i) to carry out, in conjunction with the Client, the Acceptance Tests (as defined below); and (ii) to deliver the Customised Applications by the Delivery Date (as defined below), in accordance with the terms and conditions set out in this Agreement.
The Client is granted the non-exclusive right to use the RN Applications.
User rights are limited exclusively to own use of the RN Applications for the agreed upon scope and object code.
Rights to the source code are not provided unless explicitly agreed upon otherwise in writing.
It is prohibited for the Client directly or indirectly (through a third party) to copy, duplicate or alter the RN Applications in any way, without the prior written approval from RN.
User rights on the RN Applications cannot be transferred to any third party (third parties also include holding-, sister- and/ or subsidiary companies).
The Client does not have the right to make the RN Applications available, under any title or in any way whatsoever, to any third party (third parties also include holding-, sister- and/or subsidiary companies of the Client).
The Client is not permitted to reverse engineer or decompile the RN Applications unless such is explicitly permitted by law.
The user rights shall come into effect after the Client has made the required payments and fulfilled its other obligations.
The extent of the user rights pertaining to RN Applications provided by RN, the resulting provisions and related activities, which originate from third parties (“Third Party Products and Services”) is determined by the terms set out in clause 2C.
C. Third Party Products and Services
RN has the right to deliver Third Party Products and Services or make use of Third Party Products and Services in fulfilling its obligations flowing forth from the Agreement. RN is not responsible for Third Party Products and Services unless agreed upon otherwise in writing.
No maintenance, support or other services will be carried out by RN on Third Party Products and Services, unless agreed upon otherwise in writing.
If agreed, RN shall perform maintenance work with respect to the software specified in the contract.
All Services provided by RN that can be considered advice or which can be described as advice, such as but not limited to support, will only be given to the best of RN’s knowledge and capability.
RN is not responsible and/or liable if the activities that flow forth from advice result in the Client’s failure to carry out a project within allocated budgets, time schedules and other agreed upon conditions.
RN will provide advice on the basis of the conditions required by RN and information received from the Client as mentioned in clause 1H. If it appears that not all relevant information has been received and/or other problems and/or insights may arise, such as but not limited to incompatibility problems (products are unable to interoperate with each other), the given advice may be adjusted to the new circumstances.
F. Additional Work
If in the opinion of RN, a change requested by the Client is in fact a request for additional work, RN will notify the Client thereof prior to performing additional work. Upon the Client’s request, the notification will be followed by a specification of the price and additional conditions. The Client will decide as soon as possible whether to carry out the additional work.
Where the Application is delivered as a Service (hosted by RN) RN will, to the best of its abilities, make regular copies (“Back-ups”) of the digital data within the Application (“Process Data”). When the Application is installed on the client’s infrastructure, the Client becomes fully responsible for the backup and restore process.
RN will not be liable for loss of Process Data and/or errors in the Back-ups. The Client is solely responsible for regularly (functional) testing of the Back-ups and for ascertaining whether the Back-ups are sufficient to restore proper functioning of the Application after a calamity.
H. Delivery Date and Delays
a. (Delivery) Dates
RN shall supply to the Client, within a reasonable time before any Delivery Date, such information and assistance as may be necessary to enable the Client to prepare for the installation or go-live of the Application; however, RN shall in no circumstances be liable for any deficiency in such preparation.
“Delivery Date” is to be understood as the estimated delivery date in the Implementation Plan on which RN will deliver the Application (for on-site installation) or the go-live of the Service provision.
Delivery Dates shall therefore not be considered to be absolute (delivery) dates within which must be delivered, but a time period within which RN shall strive with best efforts to deliver the agreed upon items. If it is not possible to keep to the (delivery) date, then RN and the Client will consult with each other to agree on a substitute (delivery) date.
All Delivery Dates which may be named by and may be applicable to RN are determined to the best of RN’s knowledge on the basis of information made known to RN and will be taken into consideration as much as possible.
If the Delivery Date is delayed at the request of the Client, or because of his acts or omissions, the Implementation Plan shall be amended to take account of such delay in accordance with 2.J. If RN can demonstrate that the delay has resulted in an increase in cost to RN of carrying out its obligations under this Agreement, RN may, at its sole discretion, notify the Client that it wishes to increase the price by an amount not exceeding any such demonstrable cost. RN may invoice the Client for any additional monies that become payable in this way, within thirty (30) days of demonstrating the increase in costs.
In the event that a key date within the Implementation Plan is delayed for a period exceeding ten (10) days and this delay is caused by Client’s failure to provide material information which has been requested by RN, RN shall be entitled to suspend the Services. All costs incurred by RN in the resumption of Services shall be for the account of the Client.
Exceeding a given Delivery Date which may be applicable, never constitutes an attributable shortcoming by RN. RN does not accept liability under any circumstances in cases where the Delivery Date may be exceeded.
The Client’s rights, such as but not limited to the transfer of Products, in particular hardware, are provided under the suspended condition that the Client pays the agreed compensation in full and in time. In case of failure to pay, the Client must return the Services to RN at the Client’s expense within one week of receiving the instruction from RN to do so. All other remedies in law remain applicable..
From the moment of delivery, the Client will bear the risk of the Services delivered even if possible ownership and user rights have not yet been transferred. The Client will therefore be held accountable for full payment of the Services delivered regardless of the destruction of or the decline in value of the Services delivered due to circumstances for which RN cannot be held accountable.
The aforementioned will also be applicable from the moment in which the Client does not make it possible for RN to make a delivery.
RN shall deliver the Services to the Client in accordance with the specifications established in writing by RN.
Delivery of the Services takes place when they are made available to the Client at the Client’s premises or at a data centre used by RN. The delivery of services by or through RN takes place at the place and time that the services are performed.
Error(s) means the failure to fulfil the functional specifications set out in writing by RN. An error only exists where such can be demonstrated and reproduced.
The Client is required to immediately report possible errors to RN. Every right to repair errors lapses if the Services provided by RN are altered in any way or form.
RN is entitled to install temporary solutions, emergency solutions, detours and/or other problem-avoiding measures in the Services.
I. Acceptance Test and Acceptance
Prior to the Delivery Date, the Parties will mutually agree on a User Acceptance Test (“UAT”) as outlined in Appendix B to these Terms and Conditions.
J. Implementation plan
Both Parties shall perform their obligations under this Agreement in accordance with the Implementation Plan.
RN shall be given an extension of the timetable of any one or more of the stages in the Implementation Plan if one or more of the following events occurs:
- a variation to the Products is made at the Client’s request;
- a force majeure event occurs as per clause 1.J;
- a delay is caused in whole or in part by an action or omission of the Client or its employees, agents or third-party contractors.
If RN is entitled to an extension of time, it shall give written notice to the Client not later than seven days after the beginning of the event. Such notice shall specify the event relied on and, in the case of a force majeure event under clause 2J, shall estimate the probable extent of the delay.
The Client Representative and the Project Manager shall use best endeavours to agree in writing, signed by both Parties, what extension of time is reasonable in the circumstances. The Implementation Plan shall be deemed amended accordingly.
K. Changes to Customized Products
The Client may, by giving written notice to RN at any time during the term of this Agreement, request a change to the Products.
Within seven (7) days of receipt of such notice, RN shall, at its rates then in force, prepare for the Client a written estimate of any increase or decrease in the Price, and of any effect that the requested change would have on the Implementation Plan.
Within fourteen (14) days of receipt of the written estimate, the Client shall inform RN in writing of whether or not the Client wishes the requested change to be made. If the change is required, RN shall not make the requested change until the Parties have agreed and signed a written agreement (‘Change Agreement’) specifying, in particular, any changes to the Implementation Plan and Price.

The Client will enable RN to verify if the standards and/or requirements are met.
If the Client, after the verification as set out above, still fails to meet the standards and/or requirements, RN will have the right to terminate or dissolve the agreement wholly or partially without prior notification and/or judicial intervention.

If RN is of the opinion that possible danger occurs for the functioning of the computer systems or the network of RN or third parties and/or for the services through the network, in particular caused by excessive sending of email or other data, badly secured systems or activity of viruses, Trojans or similar software, RN is entitled to take all measures reasonably necessary to prevent this danger. The costs of these measures, including costs for informing the Client of the dangers, are for the account of the Client.
