6. Disclaimer

a) Content
Netload distances itself from all content uploaded and downloaded via its service. The users themselves are solely responsible for the files they upload and download through the service. Netload does not assume any liability for the content. The content is the sole responsibility of those users who upload or download the files.

Netload assumes no liability for the quality of the content available on its service or that it is up-to-date, accurate, or complete, nor for any so-called consequential damages directly or indirectly caused by content.

b) The Content of Other Websites
Netload assumes liability for direct or indirect links or references to external websites for which Netload is not responsible only if Netload has knowledge of the contents and it is technically possible and reasonable to prevent the use of this site. Netload expressly declares that at the time the link was created, no illegal content was known or recognizable on the linked pages. Netload does not have any control of future design or modification of these linked pages and therefore disclaims any liability. Netload hereby explicitly distances itself from all content on sites previously linked and those to be linked in the future. This also applies to subsequent changes in content of the linked pages. The provider or other party responsibility for the content of these external pages has sole responsibility for any damages and other legal claims.

c) Accessibility of the Service
The user has no right that the service can be accessed at any time. Unrestricted access to the services is therefore not guaranteed. Netload is not liable for damages if its service cannot be used or accessed temporarily or permanently or if uploaded files are lost or damaged.

All liability for the actions of the authorities, labor disputes, force majeure, natural disasters or accidental damage is likewise fully disclaimed and excluded.

As far as private or business data must be retrieved and entered, the user expressly gives voluntary consent to disclose this information. No data will be disclosed to third parties or used for marketing purposes.

b) Advantages of Premium Accounts
Users with premium accounts can download without restrictions. There is no limit to the download volume.

Users of these accounts can also upload files without restriction. There is no limit of space. Your files will not be deleted automatically. If after storing more than 500 GB on Netload, your account is inactive for more than 30 days, files will be deleted to bring your stored amount below the 500 GB limit.

Uploaded files are stored on at least two different server systems and are thus doubly secured. Mirrored files with a size of more than 100 GB are deleted if your account is inactive.

Files can be easily uploaded via FTP or FXP to Netload's servers and then converted with the links generated by Netload for the files. Interrupted uploads can be resumed.

Premium account users will be given preference and faster customer support.

For each order, you will receive two free days extra per year. Once an account has been purchased, the two extra days will be credited on a random day in the subsequent 12 months. You will be notified by email 24 hours prior to possible use. Prior notice is not possible.

10. Right of Revocation

You can revoke your contract in writing (email or letter) within one month without giving reasons. The time limit begins after receipt of this notice in written form, but not before the contract is concluded and also not before we have fulfilled our obligation to provide information under Article 246 §2 with §1(1) and (2) of the Introductory Statute of the German Civil Code as well as our duties according to §312e(1.1) of the German Code and Article 246 §3 of the Introductory Statute of the German Civil Code. The timely submission of the revocation constitutes meeting the deadline for revocation. The revocation shall be addressed to: accounting@netload.in or netload.in, Netload GmbH, Weismüllerstrasse 28, D-60314 Frankfurt am Main. Your right to revoke the contract expires when the contract is fulfilled by both sides upon your specific request before exercising your right of revocation.

11. Changes in the Service and Terms and Conditions

Netload reserves the right to update, expand, or change its services at any time. The new services are also subject to these Terms and Conditions.

Netload can modify any provision of these terms at any time without prior notice. It is the responsibility of users to obtain information about changed provisions.

12. Applicable Law and Severability

For all legal relationships between Netload, users, and third parties, the law of the Federal Republic of Germany shall apply. This choice applies to consumers only insofar as the protection provided is not withdrawn by mandatory provisions of the laws of the country where the user is domiciled.

Should one or more provisions of these Terms and Conditions or any provision contained in any other contractual agreements be or become invalid, the validity of the remaining provisions or agreements shall not be affected. The fully or partially invalid provision or agreement is to be replaced by a provision that fulfills the business purpose of the invalid provision.
