Availability and Termination of Our Services

Availability of Our Services. We are always trying to improve our Services. That means we may expand, add, or remove our Services, functionalities, and the support of certain devices and platforms. Our Services may be interrupted, including for maintenance, repairs, upgrades, or network or equipment failures. We may discontinue some or all of our Services within a thirty days notice. Events beyond our control, including preventing abuse, reacting to legal conditions, or solving safety problems, may justify the requirement of said notice no longer applies. Further events beyond our control, such as natural events or events of force majeure, may influence our Services.

Termination. Although we hope you remain a TechTalks participant or provider, you can terminate your relationship with TechTalks anytime for any reason by deleting your account. For instructions on how to do so, please contact us at webinare@tedo-verlag.de.
Our right to terminate you for important reasons remains untouched. An important reason exists if one of the parties violates laws or the rights of third parties and if the terminating party, after weighing up all circumstances of the respective case and the interests of both parties, cannot reasonably be required to end the contractual relationship by the agreed expiry date or to the expiry of a period of notice. Termination for important reason is only possible within a reasonable period of time after the other party has become aware of the respective violation.
If the important reason relates to a breach of an obligation under these Terms and conditions, termination is only possible after a period of grace granted has expired or an unsuccessful warning has been issued. This does not apply, however, if the party in the breach of the contract seriously and definitively refuses to fulfill its obligations, or if, after weighing up the interests of both parties, it is determined that termination without notice is justified due to special circumstances.
We may also modify, suspend, or terminate your access to and use of our Services at any time for suspicious or illegal conduct, including but not limited to fraud, or if we reasonably believe you are breaching our Terms or causing harm, risk, or potential harm to create risks for us, our users, or others. We may also deactivate or delete your account if it does not become active after an account registration or is inactive for a long period of time. If you delete your account, or we delete or disable it, these Terms will terminate as an agreement between you and us, however, the following provisions will survive any termination or termination of your relationship with TeDo Verlag: „Licenses“, „Disclaimers and Release“, „Limitation of Liability“, „Availability and Termination of Our Services“, and „Other.“ If you believe your accout was terminated or suspended in error, please contact us at webinare@tedo-verlag.de.
