  1. General
    1. This agreement is entered by Mategra GmbH (“Mategra”) and you (“The Customer”). Mategra means Mategra GmbH, Fasanstraße 25/14, 8052 Graz, Austria.
    2. Mategra customers are business owners and/or entrepreneurs as specified in §1 (2) KSchG (Austrian Consumer Protection Act).
    3. Standard business conditions and/or general terms and conditions of the Customer do not apply, regardless of whether or not Mategra has expressly objected to them in a particular case. Any terms and conditions of the customer will only apply if Mategra expressly confirms this in writing.
    4. Individual agreements have to be accomplished in writing and also have to be signed by all parties. Any informal statements and declarations by Mategra, also including ones by email, are not binding.
    5. These Terms of Service can be unilaterally changed by Mategra at any time. The customer gets notified of any changes via email at least two months before the changes will take effect. Within four weeks from the date the email was sent, the customer will be entitled to object to the changes in writing. If the customer has not objected to the changes within a four-week period or if the customer has agreed to the changes, the changes are deemed accepted and binding. These legal consequences (including the option to object) will be highlighted separately in the notification mail. In case of an objection, Mategra is entitled to terminate the contracts concluded with the customer within a one-month notice period under the old Terms of Service for good cause. For the case, Mategra does not terminate any contracts in the event of an objection by the customer, the old Terms of Service shall continue to apply on the affected contracts.
  2. Scope of Services and Downtime
    1. Mategra provides the customer with “testiny”, a service platform, including but not limited to a cloud system for software testing, test management, test documentation, infrastructure services, and the possibility to store data, as software-as-a-service (“SaaS”; each a “Service” and together the “Services”) in the respective current app version (hereinafter referred to as “Software”) to the extent licensed under this agreement.
    2. Mategra provides its Software and its modules to Customers on an online platform or to be downloaded via the internet for the duration of the agreement on the terms and conditions set out in these terms and conditions.
    3. Mategra reserves the right to perform ongoing development and modify the Software as well as specifications of the Software at any time (e.g. applying newer technologies, toolstack changes, etc.). Such adjustments, changes and updates of the Software that help to improve the software, or avoid, or maintain dysfunctions of the Software, may lead to temporary service degradations or suspensions. Mategra will try to limit downtime of the service or restrictions of accessibility to a minimum and will try to do regular maintenance works during the weekend or at times where a minimal number of users is normally active. Mategra will inform the customer in a timely manner about upcoming maintenance works. The customer benefits from such maintenance and improvements and thus acknowledges potential downtimes.
    4. The customer has the option of using the Software free of charge during the initial, clearly marked beta phase. At least one month before the end of the beta phase, the customer will get informed of the date the beta phase will end. The day after the end of the beta phase, the customer will fall under the terms of the first day of the “trial phase”, as outlined in these Terms of Service.
    5. The customer has the option of using the Software free of charge in a trial period for 30 days after sign-up. Before the end of the trial period, Mategra will reach out to the customer with the offer to convert the trial into a paid subscription plan to continue using the Software. When the customer does not take this offer, the customer’s account will get handled according to the conditions lined out in “Term and Termination”, especially point 7.6.
    6. Mategra is solely responsible for providing their own services. In case of any Software malfunctions caused by a third party intervention or the customer himself, the customer may not raise any claims against Mategra. The Customer is aware that the Service relies on a working internet infrastructure. Any end devices and the internet connection are not covered by the service of Mategra.
  3. Customer’s Obligations
    1. The software shall only be used by the customer for its intended purpose and shall not be misused in any manner, especially like storing or distributing unlawful content, copyright protected material etc. No software system, data or any other technical system must be used by the customer which could impair the software or other systems operated by Mategra.

    3.

    4. The Customer shall not cause, permit, or attempt the change, disassembly, decompilation, or the reverse engineering of the Software, unless (and only to the extent that) applicable law expressly and compulsorily permits it, notwithstanding this limitation.

Mategra reserves the right to disable the customers access to the software in case of a violation of these Terms and Conditions or the violation of any other individual agreements, especially if the customer is misusing the software as lined out in 3.3 or defaults payment. Such a measure does not affect the customers obligations to continue the payments for the contractual usage fees.

The customer agrees to assist Mategra free of charge to amend any errors. Mategra reserves the right to prioritize and refuse any kind of bug fix, feature, system improvement, etc. at its own discretion.
