Terms of Use

Wonder Technologies GmbH

1. Scope of Application and General Provisions
  1. These Terms of Use (the "ToU") apply to the provision and use of Wonder’s cross-platform service for the facilitation and hosting of online meetings (the "Software") by Wonder Technologies GmbH, Schnellerstraße 60, 12439 Berlin ("Wonder"). The provision of the services offered by Wonder on its website (the "Services") address both consumers (Verbraucher) pursuant to Section 13 German Civil Code and entrepreneurs (Unternehmer) pursuant to Section 14 German Civil Code (the respective customer the "Customer", together with Wonder the "Parties"). Paid Plans are offered exclusively to companies or persons that legally qualify as entrepreneurs (Unternehmer).
  2. Deviations from these ToU shall only be considered agreed if they have expressly been confirmed in writing by Wonder. In particular, the mere omission of an objection by Wonder against any general terms and conditions of the Customer shall not cause such terms and conditions to be considered agreed. This shall also apply if Wonder performs Services unconditionally upon knowledge of opposing terms and conditions of the Customer or terms and conditions diverging from these ToU.
2. Conclusion of Contract
  1. To fully access the Services the User must first select a supported login method to start the signup process. Subsequently, by checking the respective boxes, the User accepts the then current versions of Wonder’s ToU, privacy policy (https://www.wonder.me/policies/privacy-policy) and data processing agreement (https://www.wonder.me/policies/data-processing-agreement). By clicking on the button "Next", the User accepts Wonder's offer to conclude a contract (the "Contract") including these ToU. Upon completion of the signup process, a Wonder space is created to which the Customer can invite other users and hold online meetings and collaborate in various ways together.
  2. Users can also use a limited version of the Services without going through the registration process pursuant to Sec. 2.1 by simply accessing the Software via browser or stand-alone application.
3. Scope of Services
  1. The Software is a cross-platform application for running online meetings (the “Contract Purpose”).
  2. Wonder may offer free or trial plans (each a “Free Plan”) and paid plans (each a “Paid Plan”) for the subscription to the Service. The individually agreed scope of Service of the Contract between the Customer and Wonder shall be based on the respective Free Plan or Paid Plan as described on the Pricing Page and selected by the Customer (such selected plan the "Plan"). The Service owed by Wonder according to the contractually agreed scope of Service shall hereinafter be referred to as "Contractual Services"; the term "Software" shall only include those parts of the Software which are covered by the contractually agreed scope of services.
  3. Wonder reserves the right to remove certain features from the Free Plans at its own discretion.
  4. Upon completion of the signup process, the Customer may define a the number of concurrent users that are allowed to join the space (referred to as a “User Limit”). On a Free Plan, any number of users can join the space free of charge. On a Paid Plan, the User Limit chosen by the Customer defines the total cost of the plan as per the Pricing Page. 
  5. The Customer may upgrade from a Free Plan to a Paid Plan, or switch to a more comprehensive Paid Plan at any time; in this case, from the time of the switch the details concerning the scope of services, remuneration, etc. of the new Plan stated on the Pricing Page shall apply. A switch to a cheaper Plan is only permissible with the consent of Wonder or if the notice period specified in these ToU or on the Pricing Page is observed.
  6. The Customer may at any time decrease or increase the User Limit. Decreasing or increasing the User Limit does not affect the term or terminability of the Customer’s Plan. In case of increase, the cost for each increase is subject to the provisions of the applicable Pricing Page and is calculated on a pro-rated basis under consideration of the billing period of the Customer’s Plan. In case of decrease, the compensation owed by the Customer under his Plan proportionately decreases with effect as of the next billing period of his Plan.
  7. Wonder reserves the right to remove certain features from the Software at its own discretion. The scope of the Services for the Customer shall be determined by Wonder at its own discretion. The Customer has no claim to the retention of certain functions or the specific design of the Services.
4. Operations
  1. Wonder intends to use state-of-the-art technology and shall be entitled to regularly carry out or introduce updates, new versions or upgrades of the Software in order to adapt the Software to new technical or commercial requirements, to implement new features, or to make changes to existing features in order to improve the Software.

6. Indemnification
  1. The Customer indemnifies and holds Wonder harmless from all claims by third parties (in particular from claims arising out of breach of copyright, competition, trademark or data protection law) that are asserted against Wonder in connection with the Customer’s use of the Software insofar as such claims do not result from wilful or negligent behaviour of Wonder or its legal representatives or agents (gesetzliche Vertreter oder Erfüllungsgehilfen). This indemnification obligation comprises the reimbursement for appropriate costs that Wonder incurred in the course of asserting or defending its legal rights in this context.

  2. Wonder is liable for damages if arising from (i) willful misconduct or gross negligence of Wonder or its legal representatives or agents (gesetzliche Vertreter oder Erfüllungsgehilfen), (ii) negligent violation of a material contractual duty (Kardinalpflichten) by Wonder or its legal representatives or agents, however, limited to typical damages which are foreseeable at the time of the conclusion of the Contract or (iii) negligence of Wonder or its legal representatives or agents in a way causing injury to life, body or health, or (iv) any compulsory statutory liability of Wonder or its legal representatives or agents. Material contractual duties (Kardinalpflichten) are duties the fulfilment of which is a prerequisite for proper execution of the Contract or the breach of which endangers attainment of the Contract Purpose and the observance of which the Customer must regularly rely on.
  3. Any contributory negligence (Mitverschulden) on the part of the Customer shall be taken into account. In particular, Wonder shall only be liable for the recovery of data if the Customer has taken all necessary and reasonable data backup precautions and ensured that the data can be recovered at reasonable cost from data material kept in machine-readable form.
  4. This liability arrangement is conclusive. It shall apply with respect to all damage compensation claims, irrespective of their legal ground, particularly also with respect to pre-contractual claims or collateral contractual claims. This liability arrangement shall also apply in favor of legal representatives and agents of Wonder if claims are asserted directly against them.
  5. The Customer is obliged to immediately notify any damage pursuant to the above liability provisions to Wonder in text form or to have such damage documented by Wonder, so that Wonder is informed as early as possible and can possibly still mitigate the damage together with the Customer.
9. Limitation of Claims
  1. Claims of the Customer become time-barred, except in the event of intention or gross negligence, within one year from beginning of the limitation period. This shall not apply if the damage in question incurred by the Customer consists in personal injury. Claims for personal injury become statute-barred within the statutory limitation period.
  2. Any rescission of contract or reduction of payments shall be invalid if the claim to performance or subsequent performance of the Customer has become time-barred.

11. Feedback
  1. The Customer agrees that Wonder may freely use, exploit and further develop any feedback provided by the Customer.
12. Term and Termination
  1. The term of the Contract and terminability shall be governed by the provisions of the Pricing Page on the Plan chosen by the Customer.
  2. If the Pricing Page does not contain any information on the term or terminability of a Paid Plan, such Plan shall run for one month and may be terminated by either party with effect as of the end of the month. If the Paid Plan is not terminated, it is automatically renewed for one further month; for such renewed period, the provisions of the Pricing Page applicable to the Customer before renewal continue to apply.
  3. Wonder advises the Customer that they themselves are responsible for the timely backup of their data before termination of the Contract. For technical reasons, Wonder cannot generally guarantee that the Customer will be able to access their data files after termination of the Contract.
  4. The Parties’ statutory right to extraordinary termination remains unaffected. An important reason is present for the other contracting party in particular if:
  5. one of the Parties seriously breaches its obligations under the Contract and the other Party can no longer reasonably be expected to abide by the Contract;
  6. the Customer is more than two (2) months in arrears with the payment of due fees or other remuneration, even after the expiry of a reasonable period set by Wonder to remedy the situation;
  7. insolvency proceedings are applied for, instituted or dismissed in respect of all or part of the assets of a Party;
  8. one of the Parties has a reason for insolvency within the meaning of Sections 17-19 Insolvency Statute (Insolvenzordnung, “InsO”); or
  9. the financial circumstances of a Party deteriorate to such an extent that proper performance of the Contract can no longer be expected, even if there is no reason for insolvency within the meaning of Sections 17-19 InsO.
  10. Each termination must be made by declaration in text form.
13. Confidentiality
  1. The Parties undertake to maintain temporally unlimited secrecy regarding all information and documents of the Parties labelled as confidential or to be considered confidential based on the circumstances.
  2. The following applies to such Customers that are entrepreneurs: The Customer consents for Wonder to disclose the collaboration between Wonder and the Customer for marketing purposes and in this connection also use the organization logo of the Customer. The Customer may revoke this consent pursuant to this Section 12.2 at any time by declaration in text form (e.g. via e-mail to info@wonder.me).
14. Data Protection
  1. Wonder treats the Customer's personal data in accordance with data protection standards and specifications. 
  2. Wonder only acts as data processor within the meaning of Art. 28 GDPR vis-à-vis such Users that feed personal data (personenbezogene Daten) of their customers into the Software. The User is obliged to notify Wonder beforehand of its intent to feed personal data of their customers into the Software; in this case, the Parties are obliged to conclude a separate data processing agreement.
  3. Within the applicable law (in particular, but not limited to, antitrust/competition law), Wonder is entitled to use data fed into the Software by the Customer in anonymised or aggregated form. Wonder shall be entitled to do so in particular in order to improve existing functions of the Software or to provide new functions of the Software.
15. Final Provisions
  1. If the Customer qualifies as businesses (Unternehmer) pursuant to Section 14 German Civil Code: Should individual provisions of the Contract of use or other contractual documents be or become invalid or unenforceable in whole or in part or should they not contain a necessary provision, this shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions. In place of the invalid or unenforceable provision or to fill the loophole, the legally admissible provision shall be deemed to have been agreed retroactively which corresponds as closely as possible to what the Parties would have wished or would have been agreed in spirit and purpose by the Parties if they had considered the invalidity or unenforceability of the provision in question or the loophole.
  2. If these ToU refer to a written form or notification, the sending of an e-mail shall also suffice respectively.
  3. The Contract and the other contract documents are subject to the law of the Federal Republic of Germany to the exclusion of the German conflict of laws principles and the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. Statutory provisions on the restriction of choice of law and the applicability of mandatory law in particular of the place where a Customer which legally qualifies as consumer (Verbraucher) pursuant to Section 13 German Civil Code has its habitual residence (gewöhnlicher Aufenthalt) remain unaffected.
  4. If the Customer qualifies as merchant (Kaufmann), legal entity under public law (juristische Person des öffentlichen Rechts) or separate fund under public law (öffentlich-rechtliches Sondervermögen), for all disputes arising from or in connection with the Contract or the ToU, including their validity, the District Court of Berlin (Landgericht Berlin) shall have exclusive jurisdiction to the extent permitted by law.
