§ 2 Subject matter of the contract

2.1 The contracting parties agree on the cooperation for automation ofAPI interfaces by means of iPaaS platforms and various development services(API, web and low-code), which are defined in the order before the start of services. An employment contract is not intended by the Parties and is not established.

2.3 The service provider is free to work for other clients.

§ 3 Conclusion of the contract

3.2 The subject of the contract or the exact task description is described in the written order.

3.3 Unless otherwise expressly agreed, offers are subject to change and are valid for two weeks after the date of the offer. The customer is bound to a placed order for four weeks, if no acceptance is received from MAKEITFUTURE,the order is invalid after the four weeks. An order is only considered accepted when it has been confirmed in writing, when we have sent an order confirmation by e-mail or when we have started delivery within this period.  

3.4 The conclusion of the contract shall be subject to correct and timely delivery by our suppliers. This shall only apply in the event that we are not responsible for the non-delivery, in particular in the event of the conclusion of a congruent hedging transaction with our (software) supplier and service providers. We expressly do not assume any procurement risk if we have concluded a procurement contract or service contract for the owed service with our supplier. The customer will be informed immediately about the unavailability of the service. The consideration shall be refunded without delay.  

3.5 Subsequent changes at the instigation of the customer shall be charged to the customer.

3.6 Cost estimates and offers are non-binding. If we realize during the execution of the order that the estimated costs will increase by more than 20%, we shall immediately stop the work and inform the customer thereof. At the same time, we will provide the customer with an estimate of the costs that are now expected to be necessary. The customer then has the right to decide whether the order is to be terminated with payment or continued. If the order is cancelled, the services and deliveries provided up to that point will be paid for. The customer will receive all work results produced up to that point.  

§ 4 Duration and termination of the contract
