By downloading the software you enter into a contract for use of the App Audit Manager (hereinafter referred to as “Software”) with Robert Bosch GmbH, Robert-Bosch-Platz 1, 70839 Gerlingen (hereinafter referred to as “Bosch”). By downloading the Software you declare that you agree to the following conditions.

The Software is designed for assessments, auditing and interviews. The Software serves to support the auditing of production, process or product developments in accordance with the Standard VDA volume 6, part 3, version 2010. Only one production process and the process or product development can be audited in parallel. To use the Software we recommend that you use a pen and a hand-held appliance for the device.

1. Use:

Upon downloading the Software, Bosch confers upon you the non-exclusive right of use on a device which you own or is in your possession on which the Software can run in accordance with the system requirements which you may inspect prior to agreeing to these conditions. The right of use does not encompass provision of the Software via a network for simultaneous use by several terminal devices. You are not permitted to copy or distribute the Software or to make it otherwise available to third parties (including rent, leasing, loan or sub-licensing), with the exception of temporary provision to a third party free of charge together with the terminal device on which you have installed the Software. You are not entitled to change, reverse engineer, decompile or disassemble the program code of the Software or of parts thereof, or to otherwise identify the source code or to produce derived works therefrom. The compulsory, mandatory provisions of §§ 69d, 69e German Copyright Act (UrhG) shall remain unaffected hereby, however. The foregoing conditions shall also apply to all updates/upgrades and program supplements for the Software which Bosch makes available for you to download, except insofar as they form the subject matter of a separate agreement. In such a case solely the applicable terms of the conditions for the respective update/upgrade or program shall apply.

2. Collaboration Duties:

When using the Software you must comply with the duty of care necessary for use and must test the results generated by the Software to an adequate extent before using the results. You are further obliged to secure your data regularly in order to ensure that the data can be recovered in the event of loss. Insofar as you acquired the Software against payment as an entrepreneur within the meaning of Section 14 German Civil Code (BGB), then the requirements to make a complaint in respect of a defect set forth in Section 377 German Commercial Code (HGB) shall apply.

3. Data collection/use:

The Software can capture the personal data (first name and surname, telephone number and e-mail addresses) of the auditor and of the persons audited. These data will not be processed and cannot be read out by Bosch.

4. Warranty, Liability:

a. Warranty and liability for free Software Bosch shall be liable for material defects and defects of title, regardless of the legal basis, only insofar as Bosch fraudulently concealed the material defect or defect of title. In other respects, based on the free provision of the Software, Bosch, the statutory representatives of Bosch and persons engaged in performance of an obligation of Bosch [Erfüllungsgehilfen] shall only be liable in the event of intentional or grossly negligent misconduct to compensate for any damage which may have arisen. Claims under the German Product Liability Act [Produkthaftungsgesetz] shall remain unaffected.

b. Limitation of liability for Software subject to payment. Insofar as you acquired the Software against payment, Bosch shall only be liable, regardless of the legal basis, in accordance with the following provisions:
In the following cases liability shall be governed by the provisions of statute:
• damage caused intentionally or by gross negligence,
• damage occurring as a result of non-compliance with guarantees given in writing, to the extent covered by the purpose of the guarantee,
• in case of fraudulent intent,
• in case of bodily harm or personal injury,
• in cases of product liability pursuant to the German Product Liability Act [Produkthaftungsgesetz],
• insofar as the scope of Section 44a German Tele-communications Act (TKG) (Liability of the provider of publically accessible telecommunications services) applies.
Insofar as the liability is not governed by the provisions of statute pursuant to the aforementioned list, the following shall apply: In cases of a breach by simple negligence of only non-material contractual obligations, Bosch shall not be liable for damages. In other respects the liability for damage caused by simple negligence shall be limited to the damage which could typically be foreseen in the context of the respective contractual relationship (foreseeable damage typical of the type of contract). This also applies to negligent breach of duty by the statutory representatives, executive staff [leitende Angestellten] and persons engaged in performance of a simple obligation [einfache Erfüllungsgehilfen]. If you are an entrepreneur within the meaning of Section 14 BGB, the parties agree that the foreseeable damage typical of the type of contract ensuing from breaches of duty under this Agreement shall not exceed the value of the remuneration paid to Bosch under this Agreement. The foregoing limitations of liability shall also apply to claims for compensation of expenses.

c. Insofar as the liability of Bosch is excluded or limited under these provisions, then this shall also apply to the liability of the officers, persons engaged in the performance of an obligation and vicarious agents [Organe, Erfüllungs- und Verrichtungsgehilfen], including employees of Bosch.

d. The warranty period for claims for material defects and defects as to title in the Software you have acquired against payment as an entrepreneur is for 12 months.

5. Transfer/Assignment:

Insofar as you make your device on which the Software is installed, temporarily available to a third party free of charge, you remain responsible for compliance with the provisions of this Agreement. Our explicit consent is required for any other transfer of the rights of use. In addition, such transfer can also be excluded by means of technical blocks set by the provider which distributes the Software.

6. Applicable law, Jurisdiction and Venue:

The substantive law of the Federal Republic of Germany shall apply to the exclusion of the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. Insofar as you are not a consumer or have no normal place of jurisdiction in Germany, the courts of Stuttgart, Germany shall have jurisdiction over all disputes arising through or in connection with this Agreement.

7. Miscellaneous

If any individual provisions or parts of this Agreement should be ineffective, the remaining provisions and parts hereof shall remain in effect. You may approach the following contact addresses if any problems arise in the use of the Software:

Furthermore the imprint of the Robert Bosch GmbH is valid.
