Terms and Conditions

of the website https://greenhats.com

Company

1.
Fundamentals

The website https://greenhats.com is operated by the greenhats® GmbH.

The operator shall provide an Internet platform for auditing and testing computer or network systems for members on the basis of these Terms and Conditions (TCs). This might include employment of techniques which might be used in the same manner as they would be used during an actual attack. Discovered vulnerabilities will be reported to the member, together with a rating of the vulnerability and recommendations for mitigation. The operator does not act as an agent in the manner of a brokerage contract. The provision of services by the operator only happens on the basis of these TCs insofar as no previous differing or supplementing individual agreements exist in written form (§ 126b BGB). Differing conditions of the user shall not form part of the contract with us, unless explicitly agreed upon previously in written form (§ 126 BGB).

2.
A user can only make use of the Internet platform, if he has entered a usage contract with the operator. For this the user needs to fulfill the following requirements:

A registration is only possible for juristic persons or natural persons of legal age that are contractors in the sense of Section 14 of the German Civil Code (BGB).

No contract will be entered with consumers in the sense of Section 13 of the BGB. Upon registration the user has to truthfully declare his entrepreneurial status in the respective field on https://greenhats.com/users/sign_up. Only then a registration and the conclusion of a contract can take place. All further personal data must be provided truthfully as well. The operator reserves the right to deny the conclusion of a contract with users providing incorrect information. If the provided information change after registration the user is obliged to correct their information in the user profile immediately.

3.
Conclusion of a contract

Upon successful registration the operator sends a registration confirmation to the user. With the reception of this confirmation the contract is concluded.

4.
Purpose and scope of the usage contract

During the term of the contract the user can place any owned computer or network systems in any desired quantity on the platform.

On placing a system on the platform the user enters the maximum amount he is willing to pay for discovery and submission of a vulnerability on the specified system.

The usage contract is concluded for an unlimited time period. The minimum contract term is six months and starts on the day of contract conclusion. The right to extraordinary termination in accordance with the regulations of the BGB (§ 543) remains unaffected.

During the term of the contract the provider allows other registered users to access the systems placed on the platform. By entering the contract the user explicitly agrees to this access.

5.
If upon examination of the systems entered on the platform a vulnerability is discovered, the user agrees to the disclosure of the vulnerability towards the operator, who subsequently is commissioned to let the vulnerability be verified and rated by third parties. A compensation does not need to be provided by the user for this process. Any liability of the operator for an erroneous verification or rating of a vulnerability by third parties is excluded.

Users of the platform can place computer or network systems on the platform.

The operator allows access to the provided systems for testers after successful registration.

The operator does not act as an agent in the manner of a brokerage contract.

A claim to renumeration by the tester for provided services only arises on the basis of these Terms and Conditions (TCs) insofar as no previous differing or supplementing individual agreements exist in written form (§ 126b BGB). Differing conditions of the user shall not form part of the contract with us, unless explicitly agreed upon previously in written form (§ 126 BGB).

2.
A tester can only use the services provided by the website upon successfully going through the registration process. This requires providing his first and last name, birth name and his explicit declaration that he solely acts as a consumer in the sense of Section 13 of the BGB. Address and bank data (or PayPal data) can optionally be provided. The personal information must be provided truthfully. The operator reserves the right to deny commencing activities on the platform or the provided systems by the testers providing incorrect information upon registration. If the provided information change after registration the tester is obliged to correct their information in the user profile immediately.

3.
The tester commits himself to treat any confidential information, sensible data and trade secrets he discovers about the provided systems as confidential and to maintain silence about them towards third parties. This commitment extends beyond the duration of the registration.

4.
The tester commits himself irrevocably not to approach any user of the platform either in written or verbal form as long as the user has provided any systems on the internet platform.

5.
The tester only reports his findings towards the operator of the platform.

6.
There is no contractual agreement between the operator of the platform and the tester. The right to renumeration can not exceed the amount provided by the user upon placing the particular system for which a vulnerability has been discovered on the platform. The specific renumeration amount shall be awarded on the basis of the rating of the discovered vulnerabilities by the operator, who delivers this rating to the user, minus an amount of 20% credited to the operator.

7.
Solely the laws of the Federal Republic of Germany shall apply.

Germany shall be the solely place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from a contractual relationship between the user and the operator of the internet platform.

8.
The operator explicitly reserves the right to modify or supplement these Terms with additional Terms.

Any amendments or modifications of these TCs shall be offered to the customer in the respective legally approved form no later than six months before their proposed date of entry into force.

If the user does not object to the applicability of the revised TCs until their proposed date of entry into force, the amended terms shall be deemed to be accepted by the user.

If the user objects to the modified TCs the operator is entitled to terminate the contract with the user as contractually agreed.

Any change or supplementation of these TCs written form is required. Changing the requirement of written form also requires written form. Additional verbal agreements have not been made.

Should individual provisions of the contract and/or the TCs become or are wholly or partially invalid, or should there be an omission in the contract or TCs, the other provisions or parts of the contract or TCs shall remain in effect. Both parties to the agreement will replace the ineffective provision by a legally admissible provision that approaches the original provision as closely as possible in terms of content and economic effect.
