Defects in the Service

The Service shall be considered defective if the features of the Service essentially deviate from the specified features and the defect is such that it clearly hinders the use of the Service.
Maintaining the Service and eliminating defects

Valtra aims to offer the Service 24/7. Valtra does not guarantee error-free functionality and availability of the Service, however. Valtra will eliminate any defects and errors observed in the Service as soon as possible. The Service is provided as is, with the functionalities and features currently available. Maintenance and any disturbances may cause disruptions in the use of the Service. Whenever possible, Valtra will announce any changes of the Service or any disruptions of use within a reasonable time on the website.
Valtra reserves the right to temporarily discontinue the Service or limit the Service availability if this is necessary to make changes/improvements to the Service or maintain/create a connection, a system, a network or hardware. Valtra will keep such disruptions as short-term as possible so that they will cause as little harm to the User as possible. Whenever possible, Valtra will notify the User of any disruptions in the Service on the Valtra website. Valtra cannot be held liable nor will Valtra be obliged to compensate any costs, losses or damage caused to the User by a Service disruption.
Limitations of Service maintenance

Service maintenance does not cover the elimination of defects that have been caused by a reason independent of Valtra for which the User is responsible. These include but are not limited to erroneous use of the Service; carelessness or negligence in following instructions on using the Service or Service maintenance; hardware, software or definitions not included in the scope of the Service; and changes or corrections made by parties other than Valtra.

Unless otherwise specified in the Service-specific Instructions and Terms of Use, Valtra will not review in advance any Materials made available in the Service but will delete any Materials that are in violation of the Terms, any laws or good practices as soon as Valtra becomes aware of such Materials. Valtra cannot be held liable for any Materials made available by users in the Service nor any consequences thereof or any information generated or added to the Service by the users. Furthermore, Valtra does not support or sponsor any opinions, recommendations or advice given in the Service.
The Service Providers try to ensure that the Service meets all data security requirements but they cannot be held liable for any damage caused to the User by defective data security or data security risks, such as viruses. The User acknowledges the fact that the Internet as an operating environment may cause defects in the functionality of the Service and that data security is always a risk when using data systems. The User is obliged to ensure that his/her computer, data system or other similar computer hardware are properly protected against such risks.
The User is liable for his/her own actions. If the User violates the Terms, the User is obliged to compensate Valtra for any damage incurred.

Valtra has the right to terminate the user rights to the Services or completely or temporarily close the Service at any time for any justified reason, and Valtra is not liable to pay any compensation to the User if Valtra decides to do so. The above-mentioned terms may also apply to a single Service or part thereof.
Furthermore, Valtra has the right to prevent the User from using the service if the User:

15. Compensating costs and damages
Limitations to liability for damages

Valtra is not liable to compensate any consequential damage or damage Valtra could not have reasonably anticipated. Neither is Valtra liable to compensate any damage arising from an issue for which the User or a third party is liable nor any damage caused by reasons Valtra is unable to influence.
Valtra's total liability for damages is limited to compensating the damages specified in this Paragraph 16, taking into account any other limitations specified in the Terms.
Faults in hardware managed by the User

If the User connects to the Service any defective hardware, definitions or software, or hardware, definitions or software that cause disturbances to the Service, or if a fault announced by the User is due to any hardware, data communications, definitions or software managed by the User, the User is liable to compensate Valtra for any damage incurred and any troubleshooting expenses.
16. Statutory issues
Valtra is obliged to hand over to the authorities any information about the User, data communications or other issues requested by the authorities if the valid legislation allows or provides that such information must be handed over.
17. Validity and termination of the Contract

18. Force majeure
A Contracting Party shall be freed from its contractual obligations and liability for damages if the Contracting Party is in violation of its contractual liabilities or the Contracting Party is unable to fulfil its contractual obligations due to a force majeure event. A force majeure event is a war, a requisition or confiscation for public needs, an export or import prohibition, a labour dispute, an act of God, a thunderstorm, a storm, a fire, a cable connection disruption or a similar disruption caused by a third party, a flood or water damage, an electrical grid surge, a disruption in the delivery of electrical energy or any other essential raw material, defective telecommunications, Internet connections or hardware obtained from a third party and managed by the third party or delayed delivery thereof, a cable connection disruption caused by a third party or any other event caused by a third party that the Contracting Party is unable to influence or any other reason the Contracting Party could not reasonably have anticipated, prevented or eliminated. Furthermore, delays in the deliveries of subcontractors or erroneous deliveries of subcontractors are also considered force majeure events as specified in this Paragraph.
If one of the Contracting Parties fails to comply with their contractual obligations due to one of the force majeure events specified above, the Contracting Party shall be provided as much time for meeting their contractual obligations as is considered reasonable taking into account all conditions therein.
