1.3 Oceans On Air GmbH sees itself as a neutral party and strives, together with its partners, to provide its users with optimum search capabilities. However, Oceans On Air GmbH cannot verify the accuracy of all offers. Information on the website is obtained from third parties. Search results depend on the information provided by the user. For this reason, Oceans On Air GmbH shall not be liable for the accuracy and comprehensiveness of rates obtained by the user through its website. It is important to note that this information is provided by third parties, not by Oceans On Air GmbH. Oceans On Air GmbH cannot ensure the suitability, availability or quality of offers obtained through its website. This information is the responsibility of the service provider or the third party. None of the information thus obtained constitutes an agreement, a guarantee or a promise on the part of Oceans On Air GmbH.
1.4 This service is free of charge.
- 2 Communication of Services
2.1 Oceans On Air GmbH allows users to enter into contracts with (third party) VSAT and mobile internet service providers.
2.2 The contract for the services listed in item 2.1 is between the user and the service provider. The sole service of Oceans On Air GmbH is that of communicating contracts or offers or providing a point of contact between users and cooperating partners. The user must be a person who has reached the age of majority and is legally competent. The user may only be a legal entity if the offer is specifically intended for such. The user is not permitted to use any identification other than his/her own when entering into the online offer or in dealings regarding the online offer provided by Oceans On Air GmbH; in particular, the user may not enter into or initiate an agreement with a service provider under any identification other than his/her own.
2.3 Oceans On Air GmbH shall inform the user of the difference in rates in accordance with the above agreements.
2.4 The user shall receive contract forms in the format requested, whether electronically using the online web form or through an online download, whether by fax, or whether by mail, insofar as these forms are available; Oceans On Air GmbH shall obtain these forms from the service provider. The transmission of these forms to the user by Oceans On Air GmbH does not constitute a binding offer from the service provider.
2.5 If the user wishes to enter into a contract with the service provider, the user can complete and sign the agreement and send it to the service provider or to Oceans On Air GmbH. The user can also send the form to the service provider electronically through the Oceans On Air GmbH website, insofar as the service provider can receive forms in this format. The offer shall only come into effect when the form has been sent to the service provider. Oceans On Air GmbH shall not be liable for the conditions outlined in the contract. The finalization of the contract and the conditions of the contract are at the discretion of the parties entering into the contract. In the eventuality that the user or, respectively, the client, should wish to cancel the contract, this is to be conducted through the respective service provider. Insofar as Oceans On Air GmbH has sent a contract to the user and the required contract with the selected service provider does not come into effect due to time constraints or the like (for example, because a user’s existing contract cannot be terminated until a date later than that provided by the user), Oceans On Air GmbH shall notify the user electronically within 2 to 4 months of the desired or possible transfer date of the aforementioned services, as part of its reminder services.
2.6 Oceans On Air GmbH shall expressly notify the user that it has no control over the information provided in the contract between the user and the service provider. The information in the contract is binding solely between the parties involved. The details of the contract sent by the service provider may deviate from those conditions provided by Oceans On Air GmbH.
2.7 Oceans On Air GmbH shall only be liable for information provided in the contract form in the case of willful and gross negligence on its part. The client shall be responsible for carefully reviewing the information provided in the forms.
2.8 Oceans On Air GmbH is not the representative of the service provider and is not party to the contract between the service provider and the client. The sole purpose of Oceans On Air GmbH is to provide a contact point between the client and the service provider; it sees itself as the intermediary. It therefore follows that Oceans On Air GmbH shall not be liable for resulting claims by any other party. In particular, the aforementioned claims no responsibility for any damage, non-existent or poor service arising as a result of this contract. Oceans On Air GmbH therefore does not ensure the suitability, availability or quality of the services offered and shall not be liable for the availability of the services offered. This remains the sole responsibility of the service provider with whom the user has entered into a contract. No information included in the online offers provided by Oceans On Air GmbH shall be deemed as a commitment, a guarantee or an assurance on the part of Oceans On Air GmbH. It is therefore recommended that the user confirm the following conditions outlined in the service provider’s contract prior to finalizing the contract: the service provider’s identity; the service provider’s ability to provide the service; the main features of the service provided; the projected contract start date; the minimum contract length and cancellation policy; the cost, in full, including all applicable installation and cancellation fees; details regarding the payment of the services provided; the period of validity for the fees and limited offers.
2.9 Services provided by Oceans On Air GmbH are without cost to the user. However, when a contract with a service provider is finalized, the service provider shall pay a fee for the services provided by the aforementioned. Oceans On Air GmbH shall receive a fee from the service providers.
2.10 Oceans On Air GmbH will collect, process and use any data that has been provided by the user or the client once the contract has been finalized for tax and accounting purposes within the scope of its role as intermediary, in accordance with data protection regulations.
2.11 Oceans On Air GmbH shall not be liable for any incorrect information on the website or the forms that is beyond its control. Oceans On Air GmbH provides information that it has received from service providers or third parties.
- 3 Information Services
3.1 In addition to their newsletter, Oceans On Air GmbH also offers an update and reminder service on its website. The user shall receive up-to-date information on a regular basis through the newsletter.
Oceans On Air GmbH offers a reminder service to users who are currently unable to change service providers but who are planning to and are able to change service providers at a later date. Oceans On Air GmbH will use the reminder service to inform the user 2 to 3 months prior to the planned date using the contact information provided by the user.
3.3 The user can use the services provided free of charge, provided they are not used for business purposes. Should the services be used for business purposes, written consent is required from Oceans On Air GmbH. Should the client use the services for business purposes without the authorization of Oceans On Air GmbH, the latter shall claim damages and the right to unauthorized gains.
