Blocking Access to your Account

Furthermore a blocking of the sloppy.io access can occur if the user is more than 30 days in default on their payment. In that case sloppy.io is also entitled to apply for the deletion of the user’s’ domain name(s) at the respective registrar.
In deciding as to whether access shall be blocked, the legitimate interests of all parties shall be considered as appropriate.
sloppy.io endeavors to ensure the best possible availability of the sloppy.io services. The sloppy.io user acknowledges however, that for technical reasons as well as due to the Service Provider’s dependence on external factors, (e.g. unavailability of telecommunications networks, electricity outages, hardware and/or software failure etc), the uninterrupted availability of individual sloppy.io sites cannot be guaranteed.The sloppy.io user can therefore not assert a claim for continual access to the sloppy.io sites. Access restrictions of a temporary nature shall not constitute grounds for warranty claims nor a right to extraordinary termination. The current status of our systems can be be viewed under the following link: https://status.sloppy.io/
As regards the fee based services provided by sloppy.io, sloppy.io guarantees within the sphere of our responsibility an availability of 98% throughout the year. Regular maintenance, which can amount to up to 4 hours per week is not included in the aforementioned, calculated availability. We aim to keep the maintenance times as short as possible.
Terms of Payment

We will return your payment using the same payment method that you originally used to pay for your sloppy.io package.
Responsibility for Content
The sloppy.io user is completely responsible for all content they post. sloppy.io is not obliged to inspect the content prior to publication as regards completeness, validity, legality, currentness, quality and suitability for particular purposes.

Either party’s mutual right to extraordinary termination for serious reasons remains unaffected.
In particular we shall have the right to terminate the contractual relationship with no notice period if circumstances allow the assumption that the sloppy.io user has intentionally or negligently committed “illicit activities” pursuant to point 6 and 13 of these terms or has breached other obligations of these terms. Such a breach and/or non-compliance can also result in further civil and criminal consequences for the sloppy.io user. Instalments paid in advance shall not be reimbursed in this case. The sloppy.io user shall be entitled to demonstrate that non-reimbursement is “unreasonable” in its case.
After termination of the contraction relationship we are no longer obligated to provide the contracted services. We can delete all data of the sloppy.io user that are located on our services. Transferring the user’s complete sloppy.io App to the servicer of a third party is not possible. It is therefore the responsibility of the sloppy.io user to store and backup the data in a timely fashion.
In addition to the rights granted by sloppy.io pursuant to these general terms and conditions, sloppy.io can take further action if sloppy.io ascertains that a security breach on the app of a sloppy.io user could lead to unauthorised disclosure of customer information, or can request that the sloppy.io user provides sloppy.io with information concerning such a breach.

The sloppy.io user shall satisfy the requirements of the data protection legislation applicable to data controllers as regards the use of sloppy.io services and in connection with these general business terms, as well as in connection with the contract provided by sloppy.io concerning commissioned data processing.
A service such as sloppy.io is subject to continuous change as regards the processing of data, the engagement of third-party providers or services. sloppy.io is constantly looking for ways to improve its services for sloppy.io users.
In this context we may also change details of data processing through our websites. sloppy.io shall inform the Client and/or the sloppy.io user in good time in the event of a scheduled change of a relevant subcontractor or in the event of a scheduled commissioning of a new subcontractor, as described in the commissioned data processing contract (“information”). Should the Client object to this change, the Contractor can terminate the contractual relationship with the Client with a notice period of at least 14 days to the end of a calendar month. With such notice period the Contractor shall give appropriate consideration to the interests of the Client. If no objection of the Client is received within three weeks of receiving the “information”, the change and/or new engagement of the relevant subcontractor shall be deemed approved by the Client.
Respective current information on the purpose, type and scope of the collection, processing and use of personal data is available in the data protection notice, which can be retrieved at any time via the “Data Protection“ link, as well as in the commissioned data processing contract.

In such cases liability is limited to the replacement of foreseeable, typically occurring damage and at a maximum is restricted to the to the equivalent amount of a yearly user fee for the sloppy.io site affected.
