1. The website https://greenhats.com is operated by the greenhats® GmbH.

The operator shall provide an Internet platform for auditing and testing computer or network systems for members on the basis of these Terms and Conditions (TCs). This might include employment of techniques which might be used in the same manner as they would be used during an actual attack. Discovered vulnerabilities will be reported to the member, together with a rating of the vulnerability and recommendations for mitigation. The operator does not act as an agent in the manner of a brokerage contract. The provision of services by the operator only happens on the basis of these TCs insofar as no previous differing or supplementing individual agreements exist in written form (§ 126b BGB). Differing conditions of the user shall not form part of the contract with us, unless explicitly agreed upon previously in written form (§ 126 BGB).

2. A user can only make use of the Internet platform, if he has entered a usage contract with the operator. For this the user needs to fulfill the following requirements:

A registration is only possible for juristic persons or natural persons of legal age that are contractors in the sense of Section 14 of the German Civil Code (BGB).

No contract will be entered with consumers in the sense of Section 13 of the BGB. Upon registration the user has to truthfully declare his entrepreneurial status in the respective field on https://greenhats.com/users/sign_up. Only then a registration and the conclusion of a contract can take place. All further personal data must be provided truthfully as well. The operator reserves the right to deny the conclusion of a contract with users providing incorrect information. If the provided information change after registration the user is obliged to correct their information in the user profile immediately.

3. Conclusion of a contract

Upon successful registration the operator sends a registration confirmation to the user. With the reception of this confirmation the contract is concluded.

4. Purpose and scope of the usage contract

During the term of the contract the user may have its owned computer or network systems checked by the operator for their IT security.

The usage contract is concluded for an unlimited time period. The minimum contract term is twelve months and starts on the day of contract conclusion. The contract is extended automatically by twelve months, unless one of the two contracting parties terminates the contract at the latest with a notice period of 90 days to the end of the agreed upon contract period or to the end of the respective extension period. The termination must be in writing. The right to extraordinary termination in accordance with the regulations of the BGB (§ 543) remains unaffected.

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