10 Privacy

  1. The Privacy Policy of ARGE Yamnam is part of the terms and conditions and thus of the contract between the customer and ARGE Yamnam.
  2. Insofar as ARGE Yamnam can access personal data of the customer or from his area, ARGE Yamnam acts exclusively as a data processor and these data will only be used for the execution of the contract. This occurs especially when using guest registration. Therefore, ARGE Yamnam provides a uniform DPA (data processing agreement) for its customers.
  3. The customer remains the person responsible, both generally in the contractual relationship and in terms of data protection law. If the customer processes personal data in connection with the contract (including collection and use), he is responsible for ensuring that he is entitled to do so in accordance with the applicable provisions, in particular data protection law, and releases ARGE Yamnam from third-party claims in the event of a breach.
  4. The following applies to the relationship between ARGE Yamnam and the customer: The customer is responsible for the processing (including collection and use) of personal data vis-à-vis the data subject, unless ARGE Yamnam is responsible for any claims of the data subject due to a breach of duty attributable to him. The customer will be responsible for checking, processing and answering any inquiries, requests and claims of the data subject. This also applies if the person concerned makes use of Yamnam. ARGE Yamnam will support the customer within the scope of his obligations.
  5. ARGE Yamnam processes the customer's data primarily in Europe, but also uses services that run in the USA due to technical requirements. Services from Google LLC, which are based in the USA and carry out data processing there, are also used to fulfill the contract. The European Court of Justice has not certified the USA as having an adequate level of data protection. In particular, there is a risk that your data will be subject to access by US authorities for control and monitoring purposes and that no effective legal remedies are available. The customer can find detailed information about the services and processing locations of the data in the currently valid privacy policy on the Yamnam website.
  6. By accepting the terms and conditions, you agree that the services of Google LLC may be used to provide our services.

11 Obligations of the Customer

  1. The customer must protect the access authorizations assigned to him or the users as well as identification and authentication information from access by third parties and not pass them on to unauthorized persons.
  2. The customer undertakes to only present content for which he owns the copyright himself or is allowed to use it through corresponding contracts.
  3. When using it, all applicable laws and other legal provisions must be observed.
  4. The customer undertakes not to present any content that is offensive, pornographic or in any other way harmful to the ethics or dignity of people.

  8. The customer is obliged to indemnify ARGE Yamnam from all claims by third parties due to legal violations that are based on illegal use of the subject of performance by him or with his approval. If the customer recognizes or has to recognize that such a violation is imminent, there is an obligation to inform ARGE Yamnam immediately.
  9. The customer is responsible for the timely acceptance and fulfillment of orders that come from his guests. To better coordinate the ordering process, Yamnam provides the Yamnam App and email notification.
  10. In the case of multilingual menus, the translation is carried out by the Google translation service. ARGE Yamnam does not guarantee the correctness of the translation. The translation by Google Translation Service can therefore only be seen as a suggestion. The customer is obliged to check the correctness himself or to have it checked.
  11. The guest registration for Covid-19 was implemented universally. The customer must check himself whether the guest registration provided by ARGE Yamnam complies with the requirements in his federal state.
  12. In order to use the payment service, the customer must register directly with a payment service provider (PSP). ARGE Yamnam only provides the connection for the PSP. All amounts of money are settled directly via the PSP. ARGE Yamnam does not charge any fees on the amounts billed.

12 Use Contrary to Contract, Compensation for Damages

For each case in which a contractual service is used without authorization in the customer's area of responsibility, the customer must pay compensation in the amount of the remuneration that would have been incurred for the contractual use within the framework of the minimum contract period applicable to this service. The customer reserves the right to prove that the customer is not responsible for the unauthorized use or that there is no or significantly less damage. ARGE Yamnam remains entitled to claim further damage.

13 Support

  2. Support accepts such inquiries by email during normal business hours.
    The support will process proper inquiries in the normal course of business and answer them as far as possible. For answers, the support can refer to documentation and other training materials for the software provided that are accessible to the customer.

14 Incident Management

  1. ARGE Yamnam will receive fault reports from the customer, assign them to the agreed fault categories (items a, b, c) and, on the basis of this assignment, carry out the agreed measures to analyze and rectify faults.
  2. ARGE Yamnam will receive proper malfunction reports from the customer during normal business hours and provide each with an identifier. At the customer's request, ARGE Yamnam will confirm receipt of a malfunction report, stating the identifier assigned.
  3. Unless otherwise agreed, Yamnam will assign received fault reports to one of the following categories after an initial inspection:
    1. Serious disorder
      The disruption is based on an error in the contractual services, which makes the use of the contractual services, in particular the software, impossible or only permits it with severe restrictions. The customer cannot work around this problem in a reasonable way and therefore cannot carry out tasks that cannot be postponed.
    2. Other disturbance
      The disruption is based on an error in the contractual services, which more than insignificantly restricts the use of the contractual services, in particular the software, by the customer, without a serious disruption being present.
  • Other message
    Error messages that are not in the categories a) and b) are assigned to the other reports. Other reports will only be handled by Yamnam in accordance with the agreements made for them.
  1. In the event of reports of serious malfunctions and other malfunctions, ARGE Yamnam will immediately take appropriate measures based on the circumstances reported by the customer in order to first localize the cause of the malfunction.
  2. If, after an initial analysis, the reported fault does not turn out to be an error in the contractual services, in particular in the software provided, ARGE Yamnam will notify the customer of this immediately.
    Otherwise, ARGE Yamnam will initiate appropriate measures for further analysis and rectification of the reported fault or - in the case of third-party software - transmit the fault report together with its analysis results to the distributor or manufacturer of the third-party software with a request for remedial action. ARGE Yamnam will immediately provide the customer with measures to circumvent or correct an error in the contractual services, in particular the software provided, such as instructions for action or corrections to the software provided. The customer will immediately take such measures to circumvent or rectify faults and report any remaining faults to ARGE Yamnam immediately.
