(Valid for new customers with immediate effect; for existing customers from February 15, 2022)

Status: January 2022

§ 1 Scope

These conditions apply to all services that Shipcloud GmbH provides independently or with the involvement of third parties after being commissioned via its online platform Shipcloud.com. They apply exclusively. Deviating, conflicting or supplementary general terms and conditions of the customer only become part of the contract if and to the extent that Shipcloud GmbH has expressly agreed to their validity in individual cases. This requirement for consent applies in any case, for example even if Shipcloud GmbH carries out the service for the customer without reservation, knowing the general terms and conditions of the customer.

§ 2 Definitions

Client within the meaning of these conditions is any entrepreneur or any company or institution that uses the services of Shipcloud GmbH. The Shipcloud GmbH offer is not aimed at consumers. Recipient within the meaning of these conditions is any natural or legal person named by the client as recipient. Consignment(s) within the meaning of these conditions are the goods to be transported.

§ 3 Provision of Services

Shipcloud GmbH provides a platform via Shipcloud.com that can be integrated into existing systems. This platform is provided and operated by Shipcloud GmbH as Software as a Service. With this software, all relevant shipping service providers can be integrated into the customer’s systems via a single interface in such a way that the customer can automatically create shipping and return labels and track shipments. The Shipcloud GmbH platform has the functions described in the online documentation. The data is transmitted by the client by addressing the interface function in the Shipcloud GmbH data center or by entering it in the web form provided. The connection of the customer’s systems to the platform is not part of the service provision. The service obligation of Shipcloud GmbH is limited to the forwarding of the data entered via the platform to the respective transport company as (sub)carrier with unchanged content and the forwarding of the data received from the transport company as (sub)carrier for the client to the unchanged content client. Shipcloud GmbH is not responsible for the accuracy and completeness of the data to be transmitted.

§ 4 Conclusion of contract

(1) The use of the Shipcloud GmbH platform requires registration. The client is obliged to provide the data requested during registration correctly and completely. This also includes depositing a payment method along with the payment data required for collection for the selected payment method. Any sales tax identification number (or its respective country-specific equivalent, such as the VAT number in Switzerland) must also be provided, unless there is an exemption from any sales tax liability and a sales tax identification number is not issued as a result – even on application . By not providing a sales tax identification number (or its respective country-specific counterpart), the client confirms that he is exempt from any sales tax liability in his tax area. After registration, the client receives an access code and password. The contract has thus been accepted by Shipcloud GmbH. Access ID and password must be protected against unauthorized access by third parties.

(2) If a contractual relationship between Shipcloud GmbH and the customer already exists/existed and the corresponding services were shut down at the expense of the customer as a result of the disregard of these contractual conditions in accordance with paragraph 10 or if the contractual relationship was then terminated, the conclusion of a (further/ new) contract with the client or the actual sender/account user (for the purpose of circumventing the suspension/termination).

§ 5 Duration of contract

(1) Unless otherwise expressly agreed, the contract period is one month from the agreed start date of the contract and is automatically extended by one month unless the contractual relationship is terminated by one of the contracting parties by the end of the current contract month.

(2) This does not affect the right to extraordinary termination for important reasons. In particular, Shipcloud GmbH is entitled to do so if the customer makes unauthorized interventions in the Shipcloud GmbH platform, violates the conditions listed in paragraph 6 or repeatedly fails to meet his payment obligations despite a reminder.

(3) The cancellation of the direct debit agreement, the withdrawal of the SEPA direct debit mandate, the loss of validity of the stored means of payment (e.g. expiration of the credit card) or the deletion of the stored payment data does not constitute a termination on the part of the client. An express and justified termination of the contractual relationship is always required.

Special conditions when using transport services

If transport services are booked in addition to the use of the Shipcloud platform by the customer, the following special conditions apply in addition to the general conditions of §§ 1 to 13 above when using transport services. The following §§ 14 to 21 only apply to these services.

§ 14 Optional provision of transport services

(1) Shipcloud GmbH also organizes logistics services as a carrier. To provide the service, Shipcloud GmbH uses well-known, internationally active transport companies as sub-carriers. Shipcloud GmbH will commission the sub-carrier designated by the client to carry out the transport of the shipment. The sub-carrier is free to commission subcontractors. Shipcloud GmbH and its sub-carriers are free to choose the transport routes and means. Compliance with certain delivery times is not owed as a rule. Instructions given by the client after a shipment has been handed over do not have to be followed. §§ 418 and 419 HGB do not apply.

(2) The delivery to the recipient named by the customer is usually made by personal delivery. Forms of contactless delivery are permitted at the request of the customer or through standard industry solutions from the transport service provider in connection with the corona pandemic. Shipments to recipients in community facilities can be delivered to a person authorized by the management of the facility to receive shipments. The client agrees that the delivery can also be made to such persons who, given the circumstances, can be assumed to be entitled to accept the shipment. This includes in particular relatives of the recipient or his spouse, household employees, roommates and neighbors of the recipient. After an unsuccessful delivery attempt, Shipcloud GmbH also has the right to have the shipment deposited in a parcel shop of one of its service providers and to notify the recipient of the deposit, which counts as delivery. Shipcloud GmbH is entitled to use electronic means to confirm receipt. If the shipment cannot be delivered in the manner described, a maximum of 2 further delivery attempts will be made for national and international delivery. After that, the shipment is considered undeliverable. Shipments are also considered undeliverable if the wrong recipient is specified and shipments that are refused. Shipcloud GmbH will return undeliverable shipments to the customer in Germany at the customer’s expense. If an undeliverable shipment cannot be returned to the customer, Shipcloud GmbH is entitled to open it. If the client or another authorized person cannot be identified or if delivery or return of the shipment is not possible or reasonable for other reasons (e.g. because the client refuses to assume the costs or such a refusal – for example as a result of Shipcloud GmbH’s already outstanding claims against the client – is to be assumed), Shipcloud GmbH can use, destroy or sell the shipment in accordance with the statutory provisions at the expense of the client.

§ 15 Conclusion of Contract for Transport Services

(1) A contract of carriage is established between Shipcloud GmbH and the respective client of the freight-carrying logistics services. It only comes about with binding acceptance of the customer’s offer to conclude a contract by Shipcloud GmbH in writing or electronically. Shipcloud GmbH is free to reject an offer at any time and without giving reasons.

(2) Shipcloud GmbH under no circumstances concludes transport contracts for goods excluded from transport (§ 18). If Shipcloud GmbH becomes aware of the transport of goods that are excluded from transport, it is entitled to refuse further transport and/or to demand a reasonable premium from the customer. Shipcloud GmbH refuses to organize the transport of shipments to recipients that are included in sanctions and/or embargo lists or are subject to a ban on cooperation. Shipcloud GmbH is entitled to request information from the client about the content of the shipment even after the shipment has been taken over by a third party commissioned by it. If the customer refuses to provide the information or if the information cannot be obtained in good time, Shipcloud GmbH is free to check the content of the shipment with regard to the transport exclusions mentioned in § 18 or to have it checked by third parties commissioned by Shipcloud GmbH.

(3) In addition to these GTC, the provisions of the HGB and the General German Forwarding Conditions (ADSp) apply, each in their latest version. In the event of contradictions, the General Terms and Conditions take precedence.

(2) If the customer buys shipping labels via the Shipcloud GmbH WebUI, the customer owes the stated price/fee (plus statutory VAT) from the moment the shipping label is created. If shipping labels are generated via the API, the customer owes the price/fee shown on the Shipcloud GmbH platform or according to the offer as soon as the create_shipping_label=true parameter is specified during generation. If a transport is commissioned using the shipping service provider DHL as part of a transport contract between Shipcloud GmbH and the customer, Shipcloud GmbH grants customers the option of deleting/cancelling shipping labels that have already been created/purchased, provided that the deletion/cancellation – using the corresponding deletion/ Cancellation function on the online platform Shipcloud.com – before 18.00 CET on the calendar day of the creation/purchase of the shipping label.

Shipping labels deleted/cancelled according to these rules will not be charged to the client. The option of deleting/cancelling shipping labels that have already been created/purchased after the deadlines specified in the two previous paragraphs has expired is expressly excluded.

Shipping via the other shipping service providers offered is not affected by this regulation.

(3) In addition, exclusions that go beyond these carriage exclusions according to the general terms and conditions and/or conditions of carriage of the executing transport company are decisive.

(3) Shipping labels for returns are valid for one hundred and twenty days from the date of creation via the Shipcloud GmbH platform when transport is commissioned independently of the shipping service provider within the framework of a transport contract between Shipcloud GmbH and the customer.

(10) If goods (electronic devices, e.g. smartphones) have a technical remote switch-off that makes them unusable or at least restricted/difficult to use, the customer / sender will immediately use such a mechanism to reduce damage and deter in every case of loss.
