1.1. The object of the Contract is the provision of the software Docusnap (hereinafter referred to as “Software”) by the company Docusnap GmbH, Franz-Larcher-Str. 4, D-83088 Kiefersfelden, (hereinafter referred to as “Licensor”) to the user of the Software (hereinafter referred to as “Licensee”). Docusnap is a computer program for the inventory, documentation and analysis of IT infrastructures.
1.2. The Software is either provided permanently (purchase option) or temporarily (rental option) .
1.3. The Licensor’s offer is solely aimed at commercial customers and public bodies. The customer assures that it is not a consumer in the sense of § 13 BGB [German Civil Code].
1.4. The Software is offered in various product editions: Free, Basic, SAM, Security, Premium and Ultimate.
a. Docusnap Free: Edition of the Software with limited functionality for the inventory, documentation and analysis of up to 25 computer systems. The actual size of the network is irrelevant. The Free Edition contains advertising overlays and captures and transmits statistical data to the Licensor to the extent described in § 13.3.
b. Docusnap Basic, SAM, Security, Premium and Ultimate Edition: Editions of the Software without the limitations of the Free Edition. The exact scope of performance of the individual editions is available
at www.docusnap.com/en/products/features-at-a-glance .
The Basic, SAM, Security, Premium and Ultimate Editions are licensed according to § 2 depending on the respective network size.
c. Docusnap Enterprise: Licensees who purchased the Enterprise Edition of the Software in the past can use the Software to the functional extent provided by the Ultimate Edition with the limitation that the use of the Docusnap Discovery Services requires the purchase of a separate licence, which is calculated according to § 2.1.
1.5. The demo version of the Software enables the use of the Software in the Ultimate Edition for a limited time for the purpose of testing the Software. Once this test phase has expired, the Software changes automatically to the Free Edition with the corresponding use limitations pursuant to § 1.4.a.
2.1. The basis for the calculation of the licence is the sum of all network sizes captured with the Software. The network size is the sum of all systems (work stations and servers) in a network. This includes Windows systems (server and desktop operating systems), Linux and Mac OS/X systems, Unix and Thin-Clients. Both virtual and physical systems are counted. Mobile devices (smartphones, tablets) and SNMP systems such as routers, printers, switches and other active network participants are excluded from the calculation.
2.2. When using the Software, the Software verifies the licensed number of systems with the actual number of systems to be inventoried. Additionally, a verification against the existing active computer accounts in the Active Directory Services (ADS) is performed. If the number of systems to be inventoried or the existing computer accounts exceed the licence size, the functionality of the Software is limited.
§3. Conclusion of the Contract
When placing an order in the Licensor’s web shop, the Licensee issues a binding offer to conclude a purchase contract (purchase option) or to conclude a rental contract (rental option). The contract is concluded when the Licensor accepts the offer in the form of an order confirmation by email.
4.1. Purchasing and rental option
The purchase prices or the rent for the Docusnap Basic, SAM, Security, Premium and Ultimate Editions are calculated depending on the selected product edition and the sum of all network sizes pursuant to § 2.1 on the Licensor’s website with a licence calculator and shown during the order process in the web shop.
4.2. Docusnap Free
The Docusnap Free Edition is provided to the Licensee free of charge. It contains advertising overlays and captures and transmits statistical data to the Licensor to the extent described in § 13.3. A deactivation of the anonymous data collection and transmission is precluded.
5.1. In the case of the rental option, the rental contract is concluded for a specified period. The Licensee can select from different rental periods when concluding the contract. On expiry of the rental period selected by the Licensee, the rental contract is extended automatically by the duration of the rental period, unless it is terminated before expiry of the rental period in the customer portal. Termination may also be in writing or in text form. Termination in writing or in text form must be received by the Licensor at the latest one week before expiry of the rental period.
5.2. The option of extraordinary termination for an important reason remains unaffected. An important reason exists if, under consideration of all the circumstances of the individual case and under consideration of the mutual interests, the terminating party cannot reasonably be expected to continue the contractual relationship until the agreed expiry. This is in particular the case if insolvency proceedings are opened against the Licensor’s assets and the insolvency administrator refuses to enter into this Contract.
6.1. In the case of the purchase option, the Basic, SAM, Security, Premium and Ultimate Editions can only be purchased together with a Docusnap Service Contract provided by the Licensor that is valid for at least one year. The object of this separate contract is the further development of the Software and the support.
6.2. The separate conditions of the Docusnap Service Contract apply.
7.1. The Software can be downloaded by the Licensee on the Licensor’s website www.docusnap.com. The Licensee must ensure that it suitably and durably secures the downloaded installation file for any later re-installations.

The above right of use is not limited by time in the case of the purchase option and is limited to the duration of the rental period in the case of the rental option.
9.2. The Licensee can only use the Software if it activates the Software online following installation. For this, the Licensee must enter an activation code which it receives from the Licensor by email. If there is no internet connection, the Licensor also offers the option of an offline activation. On expiry of the rental period, the Software is deactivated by the Licensor.
9.3. The Software may not be passed on to third parties or decompiled (i.e. returned into the source code) without the agreement of the Licensor, unless this is expressly permitted through this licence agreement or by law. If reverse engineering, decompiling or disassembling (hereinafter referred to as “Decompiling”) is required to achieve interoperability with other computer programs, the Licensee must contact the Licensor prior to Decompiling the Software and request provision of the information required to achieve such interoperability.

10.1. The parties undertake to maintain confidentiality regarding all confidential processes, in particular business or operating secrets of the other contractual party that become known to them in the course of the preparation, execution and fulfilment of this Contract and to not disclose these or use them in any other way. This applies towards all unauthorised third parties, i.e. also towards unauthorised employees, both own employees and those of the contractual partner, unless the disclosure of information is required for the orderly fulfilment of the Agent’s contractual obligations.

Rights of retention on the basis of remuneration owed can also be exercised due to the unjustified failure to fulfil the Principal’s obligations arising from the Licence Agreement.
13.2. Should individual regulations of this Contract be or become invalid in whole or in part, the validity of the remaining provisions shall remain unaffected.
