§ 2 Description of Services

  1. To the extent that the Software is provided to you free of charge, the agreement between you and us shall be classified as a loan agreement.
  2. THE USE OF OUR SOFTWARE IS GRANTED TO YOU AS IS. EVEN IF WE MAKE EVERY EFFORT TO ENSURE THAT OUR SOFTWARE IS PERMANENTLY AVAILABLE TO YOU, WE NEVERTHELESS CANNOT PROMISE UNINTERRUPTED AVAILABILITY. TOTAL OR PARTIAL UNAVAILABILITY IS POSSIBLE. DO NOT RELY ON THE AVAILABILITY OF THE SOFTWARE. IF YOU WANT TO CREATE DOCUMENTS OR THE LIKE WITH OUR SOFTWARE, WHICH MUST NECESSARILY BE AVAILABLE AT ALL TIMES, YOU SHOULD CAREFULLY CONSIDER THE USE OF OUR SOFTWARE AND, IF IN DOUBT, REFRAIN FROM USING IT.
  3. We may change features or the software as a whole at any time. Therefore, you are advised that the Software may lose features that are essential to your use of Typst, even without prior notice. In this respect, it may also happen that existing files become partially/fully temporarily/permanently damaged/useless. Of course, we try to avoid such inconveniences.
  4. In the case of gratuitous transfer of use, we can discontinue the availability of our software at any time and without giving reasons. We will try to inform you in such a case.
  5. We may use vendors to fulfill our performance obligations.

§ 3 Conclusion of contract

  1. All order or purchase buttons on our website, through which you can subscribe to/purchase our software or any other product/service, represent only an invitation to submit a contractual offer on your part. The acceptance of the offer on our part will only take place upon receipt of payment or provision of our software, products, or services. As far as you receive the software free of charge, the same applies at the time of registration.
  2. We make every effort to ensure that the relevant information about purchase-relevant features (especially price, scope, and duration) is correct. However, we reserve the right to reject your contract offer in case of incomplete or incorrect information or, in case of a contract conclusion within two weeks from the conclusion of the contract, to adjust the contract accordingly. You will be informed about this contract adjustment at least in text form. Should you not agree with the contract adjustment, you can terminate the contract free of charge or withdraw from it, and no charge will be made for any services already received. If you are not available or do not react in any other way to the contract adjustment, the contract will be automatically terminated by us.

§ 4 Termination of contract

  1. We are very sorry that you no longer wish to use our software. You may terminate the contract at any time. This must be done at least one day before the billing date for contracts subject to payment. If you have given notice of termination, the termination shall take effect at the end of the billing period or, in the case of contracts for which no fee is charged, on the next business day. After effective termination, you agree to no longer use the software - even if access is still possible.
  2. We may terminate the contract with you at the end of the billing period without stating any reasons.
  3. We reserve the right to withdraw from the contract effective immediately if circumstances arise that make it untenable for us to maintain the contractual relationship.
    Such circumstances exist if you have been in breach of contract, including breaches of these terms and conditions, or if you have provided incorrect information to us.
  4. We also reserve the right to withdraw from the contract with immediate effect if you or your behavior is otherwise evidently damaging to us or our interests. This is especially the case if you do not take our interests and assets into consideration or do not inform us about circumstances relevant to the contract.
  5. In the event of the corresponding dissolution of the contract, we will try to inform you about it as early as possible, so that you can make the necessary arrangements. However, in particularly urgent cases and considering the circumstances of the individual case, this may not be possible.
  6. If circumstances justifying immediate termination of the contract on our part arises or facts suggest that such circumstances exist, we reserve the right to temporarily block your access to our software. In such a case, we will make every effort to investigate the circumstances as quickly as possible and, if necessary, reactivate your account.

§ 5 Limitation of liability

  1. We are fully liable for personal injuries. The same applies to other damages incurred by the customer as a result of a breach of duty committed by us intentionally or through gross negligence. We shall also be liable for typical contractual damages incurred by the customer as a result of a material breach of contract on our part, even if we are only guilty of slight negligence, but the amount shall be limited to the damages foreseeable at the time of conclusion of the contract and typical for the contract. Otherwise, we shall not be liable for slight negligence. A material contractual obligation in the aforementioned sense is an obligation whose fulfillment is a prerequisite for the proper execution of the contract and on whose fulfillment the contractual partner regularly relies on and may rely on.
  2. In the case of the gratuitous transfer of use (loan), we shall only be liable for intentional or gross negligence.
  3. We shall be liable for damage caused by vendors in accordance with I. and II. as we are for damage caused by ourselves.
