Subscription costs are adjusted annually by means of the published inflation rate of the Province of Bolzano.

As soon as your fees/invoice are paid again, your account will be activated for use again.

You agree, however, to grant LIMENDO a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free license to all content created on Limendo Menu for the purpose of providing the services of the LIMENDO Website and LIMENDO’s businesses, including the marketing of the LIMENDO Services.

Limendo Menu for private persons/end users
6.9 Limendo Menu is made available to you as a private individual/end user free of charge.
6.12 Please note that when using Limendo Menu, you do not enter into a contract with Limendo Menu, but with the respective entrepreneur (place/company – restaurant, hotel, etc.) in which you inform yourself, interact with the service, order or pay. Limendo does not assume any liability or warranty in this respect for services provided by the entrepreneur. Contact the entrepreneur directly. At the bottom of Limendo Menu, the so-called footer, you can view the data protection regulations, general terms and conditions as well as the imprint of the respective company.

7.2 The scope of the service and consulting order concerning services shall be contractually agreed with the preparation of the service specifications. Both contracting parties declare that the mutual services correspond to their economic ideas. The rescission of this contract due to error is expressly excluded.

Amendments and supplements to the contract must be made in writing in order to be legally effective; there are no verbal subsidiary agreements.

Protection of the intellectual property of LIMENDO, copyright, use
7.6 The Client shall be obliged to ensure that the offers, reports, analyses, expert opinions, organisational plans, programmes, performance descriptions, drafts, calculations, drawings, data carriers and the like prepared by LIMENDO, its employees and cooperation partners in the course of the consulting order are only used for the purposes of the order. In particular, the passing on or duplication of professional statements of any kind by LIMENDO to third parties against payment or free of charge requires its written consent. This does not constitute any liability on the part of LIMENDO towards third parties.
7.7 LIMENDO shall retain the copyright to the services rendered within the scope of the order. In view of the fact that the consulting services provided are the intellectual property of LIMENDO, the right to use the same, even after payment of the fee, shall apply exclusively for the Client’s own purposes and only to the extent specified in the contract. Any transfer that takes place nevertheless, even in the course of the dissolution of the company, but also the short-term transfer for reproduction purposes, will result in claims for damages. In such a case, full satisfaction must be afforded.
Elimination of Defects and Warranty regarding LIMENDO Consulting Services

7.12 LIMENDO shall be entitled to suspend its services for as long as the Client is in default with its payment obligations for more than 14 days. Except in the case of obvious defects, complaints about LIMENDO’s performance shall not entitle LIMENDO to withhold the remuneration to which it is entitled.
7.13 If the client wishes to receive services which are not included in the main order, these services shall be remunerated according to time spent at the hourly rates agreed below. The order is placed by the client in writing, the contractor provides the proof monthly. Additional services can be invoiced in monthly partial invoices.

Risk and liability
7.17 LIMENDO and its employees shall act in accordance with the generally recognised principles of professional conduct when providing advice.

This also applies to breaches of obligations by colleagues called in.

The responsibility for the implementation of these measures and their consequences lies exclusively with the client.
7.19 LIMENDO shall not be responsible for examining legal relationships, in particular ownership, usage, corporate and tax relationships.
7.20 Investment decisions are at high risk. This risk includes, among other things, the dependence of earnings on influences from the general economic situation, the negative impact of political/war conflicts, acts of terrorism, etc. on demand and/or unforeseeable changes in the competitive environment, e.g. by competing companies or the discontinuation of demand generators. The actual occurrence of the forecast results can therefore not be guaranteed.
7.21 The selection of suppliers and service providers is subject to a high risk. This risk consists of the creditworthiness of the supplier, the capacity of the supplier, the loss of leading employees and competencies of a supplier, the general economic situation, the negative influences of political/war conflicts, acts of terrorism, etc. on demand and/or unforeseeable changes in the competitive environment. The actual occurrence of a positive course of the project or a positive cooperation cannot therefore be guaranteed.

7.23 LIMENDO, its employees and the colleagues called in shall undertake to maintain secrecy about all matters which become known to them in connection with their work for the Client.
