General terms and conditions

of the website

1. The website is operated by greenhats® GmbH.

On the basis of these General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter the GTC), the Operator provides an Internet platform for members to check computer or network systems in order to detect vulnerabilities of the systems (security check). Techniques are used here that would also be applied in the event of an actual attack on the systems. Any vulnerabilities found are reported to the user along with an assessment of the vulnerabilities and a recommendation for remediation. The operator does not provide any brokerage services on the internet platform in the sense of a brokerage contract. The provision of services by the Operator shall be exclusively based on these GTCs unless otherwise agreed or supplemented in text form (§ 126 b BGB) between the Operator and the User in individual cases. Deviating terms and conditions of the user shall not become part of the contract, unless this is expressly agreed between the provider and the customer in writing (§ 126 BGB).

2. A user can only use the internet platform if he has concluded a user contract with the operator. To do this, the user must meet the following requirements.

The creation of a user account is only possible for legal entities or natural persons of full age who are entrepreneurs in the sense of § 14 BGB (German Civil Code). No contract of use is concluded with a consumer according to § 13 BGB. The user must make a one-time declaration of his or her entrepreneurial status via the corresponding input field on or, providing truthful information. Only then can a registration and the conclusion of a contract of use come about. Likewise, correct information about the user's personal data must be provided. The operator reserves the right to refuse the conclusion of user contracts with interested parties who do not provide correct information on the aforementioned points. If a change in the data provided occurs after registration, the user is obligated to immediately change the information in the user account himself/herself.

3. Contract conclusion

The operator sends the user a registration confirmation after registration has been completed. Upon receipt of this registration confirmation by the user, the user contract comes into effect.

4. Subject and scope of the contract of use

During the term of the User Agreement, the User may have its own computers or network systems (systems requiring protection) checked by the Operator for their IT security.

The contract of use is concluded for an indefinite period. The minimum term of the contract is 12 months from the day of its conclusion. The contract shall be silently renewed for 12 months at a time unless either party terminates the contract at the latest with 90 days' notice to the end of the agreed contract term or to the end of the respective renewal period. The termination must be in writing. The right to extraordinary termination in accordance with § 314 BGB remains unaffected.

5. Any liability of the operator towards the user due to an incorrect evaluation of an IT system is excluded.
