Terms and Conditions for clients based in the European Union and the Rest of the World
1 Scope and application of German law
1.1 The terms and conditions apply exclusively to entrepreneurs, legal entities under public law or special funds under public law within the meaning of Section 310 (1) of the German Civil Code (BGB). Any terms and conditions of the Client that conflict with or deviate from our terms and conditions shall only be recognised by the Contractor if the Contractor expressly agrees to their validity in writing.
1.2 These Terms and Conditions shall also apply to all future transactions with the Principal, insofar as they are legal transactions of a related nature.
1.3 Individual agreements made with the principal in individual cases, including collateral agreements, supplements and amendments, shall in any case take precedence over these Terms and Conditions of Sale. A written confirmation from the Contractor is decisive for the content of such agreements, subject to proof to the contrary.
1.4 This contract and all legal relations between the parties are subject to the private law of the Federal Republic of Germany, excluding the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG).
1.5 The contractual language is German. In cases of doubt, the German version shall prevail.
2 Individual Agreement, Offer and Conclusion of Contract
2.1 It is the intention of the parties that each employee supply or service to be provided by the Contractor under this Agreement shall be described and agreed in detail in a separate written contract ("Individual Agreement").
2.2 The Contractor's services shall be displayed on the Contractor’s website. The presentation of the services on the website does not constitute a legally binding offer by the Contractor to the Client.
2.3 The Individual Agreement is concluded by offer and acceptance between the parties and is documented in text form.
3 Services and remuneration
3.1 The Contractor offers various services and service packages which are presented on the Website. The services and service packages are each based on the contents and prices applicable at the time of conclusion of the contract, which are documented in the Individual Agreement. The details of the Individual Agreement may differ from the services and service packages individually negotiated.
3.2 The remuneration is determined by the conditions presented for the services and service packages.
3.3 The Contractor reserves the right to make changes to services and service packages and remuneration regarding future Individual Agreement. Changes of this kind with regard to the services or service packages already booked entitle the Client to a special right of termination with one month's notice to the end of the month, irrespective of contractual minimum terms.
4 Services in the area of recruiting
For services in the area of recruiting, the Client shall commission the Contractor with the search, selection and presentation of suitable candidates for the intended task in accordance with the job profiles offered. In addition, the Contractor shall accompany the Client in an advisory capacity in recruiting and in negotiating the contractual details such as salary, working hours, holidays, etc. with the selected candidates. For details of the placement, the conditions of the offer on the website or in the sent service catalogue apply.
In case the Client decides to start receiving the services from the candidate(s) which were introduced to the Client by the Contractor, either directly through freelance or employment agreements or through any third parties other than the Contractor, the Client is obliged to pay the severance fee equal to 3 times the monthly salary expectation of the candidate, that was communicated to the Client together with the Candidate’s profile.

A monthly amount is considered a security deposit and is kept until the end of the term of the Individual Agreement, after which it is offset and/or paid out in full or in part.
5.4 The Client is entitled to issue instructions to the employee within the scope of the defined activity. The employee may only be deployed for the agreed activity and in the Client's business. A transfer of the employee to third parties, including affiliated companies within the meaning of § 15 of the German Stock Corporation Act (AktG), is excluded.
