GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
These General Terms and Conditions ("GTC"), including the additional conditions set out in the annexes for accommodations in certain countries, together with the Individual Terms and Conditions and the Additional Terms and Conditions and Media Offers accepted, ordered or otherwise applicable to the Partner's Contract, constitute the whole of the "Agreement" between Szallas.hu Zrt. (“Service Provider) and the Partner for the services provided by the Service Provider to the Partner (the "Services"). Different additional terms and conditions included in the annex to the GTC may apply to accommodations in different countries.
The Services consist of (i) the Basic Service and (ii) Other Services used by the Partner.
Other Services are (i) advertising services provided on the basis of advertisements ordered by the Partner (under a Media Offer) (defined in Section II, details in Section 7) for which the Partner pays a fee as set out in the Media Offer and (ii) services or discounts set out in the Additional Terms and Conditions ("ACTS") (defined in Section II, details in Section 8) accepted by or otherwise applicable to the Partner, which do not always involve an obligation to pay on the part of the Partner. The use of Other Services is generally, but not always, at the discretion of the Partner.
Concepts in this clause may be accompanied by additional terms in the Annex.
Some important concepts defined below shall have the following meanings in the GTC:
Registration, conclusion of the Contract
The Contract between the Service Provider and the Partner for the Basic Services is concluded by the Partner registering on the Platform partner registration website and accepting these GTC and ACTS, the acceptance of which is mandatory (if any). The Service Provider may, at its own discretion and without obligation to state reasons, decide not to accept the registration of a natural or legal person, and thus no contract shall be concluded between the person wishing to register and the Service Provider under these GTC.
During the registration process, the Partner shall register all the accommodation facilities it operates and wishes to publish in the Service Provider’s online reservation system, in addition to providing the data requested by the Service Provider
During registration, the Partner provides a secret password that allows them to access the Administration Interface.
In addition to the Online Platform Service, such as the normal display of the Offer, other advertising surfaces and options may be ordered to promote Reservations using the options indicated in the Media Offer. In this regard, where the GTCs, the Order or related documents refer to an Offer, the term Offer shall be understood to include the term Advertisement where the Offer is displayed pursuant to a separate order under the Media Offer. With regard to the Other Services (advertising) included in the Media Offers, a contract is concluded between the Partner and the Service Provider when the Partner orders the given advertising service from the Service Provider by e-mail or in another manner specified in the given Media Offer.
With respect to the Other Services included in the ACTs, the contract shall be concluded in accordance with the relevant Additional Terms. Where ACT states that it covers the Partner subject to certain conditions, it will become part of the Partner's Contract without any further action by the Partner if those conditions are met. Where ACT states that the Partner must accept it in order to be covered by it, that ACT will only become part of the Partner's Contract if accepted by the Partner in the Administration Interface or as otherwise specified in that ACT.
The contract and all its elements are concluded online, the Service Provider does not store or post them on paper.
The Partner agrees and acknowledges that in order to provide the Service, it must actively take the actions set out in the GTC or the ACTS. The Partner undertakes to continuously monitor the information provided by the Service Provider.
The Service Provider has the right to conclude a contract with other persons engaged in the same activity as the Partner, or for the same or similar services as the Partner's Service.
Certain Specific Terms of the Partner's Agreement may be set up or displayed in the Administration Interface in accordance with the relevant terms and conditions. The Partner may enter and set the parameters of its Offer for the Partner's accommodation and related services on the Administration Interface.
The Partner shall not provide any data, information and contact details (telephone number, email address, web addresses, links, social media contact, Facebook/Twitter address, etc.) in relation to its Offer, neither on the Administration Interface nor by any other means, which are public to the Users and which allow the Users to contact it directly. The Partner shall not otherwise encourage the Guest or the User to contact them directly. Any breach of these provisions shall constitute a serious breach of contract.
The Partner shall act in accordance with the applicable legislation, in particular with regard to the respect of personal rights, copyright and consumer protection regulations, in its activities under the GTC, in particular when uploading data and in any activities that it may perform on the Administration Interface.
It is the sole responsibility of the Partner to keep the secret password, used for accessing the Administration Interface, as a secret and to take all necessary measures to ensure that it is not disclosed to unauthorised persons. The Partner is also responsible for ensuring that the secret password is only known and used by persons authorised to make statements on behalf of the Partner in relation to the Contract. The Partner shall be liable for any damage caused by a breach of the above.
The Service Provider will take reasonable care to ensure that unauthorized third parties cannot modify the content of the public data uploaded by the Partner.
Online Platform Service
The Service Provider enables the Partner, within the framework of the Online Platform Service, to use the Service Provider Platform, to be searchable and bookable by Users, and to conclude a contract between the Partner and the Guest by means of the Reservation pursuant to Section VII. The Service Provider is not subject to any contract or legal relationship between the Guest and the Partner. The Partner shall pay the Service Provider a commission for the Online Platform Service (pursuant to clause X).
With regard to the Online Platform Service, the relationship between the Partner and the Service Provider 6:293 - 6:301 § of the Civil Code, on the basis of which (i) the Service Provider, acting independently, is obliged to mediate the Partner's contracts with third parties (Users), to conclude them on behalf of the Partner and to perform the obligations of the Partner under the Civil Code. (i) the Partner is obliged to act as an intermediary for the Customer and to receive and forward the contractual fees from the Guests pursuant to Article 6:129 of the PPA, (ii) the Partner is obliged to pay the commissions and fees set forth in the Agreement. The Contract is not a consumer contract as neither party is a consumer. The activities of the Service Provider do not constitute payment services with regard to Article 6 (4) b) of Act CCXXXVII of 2013 on Credit Institutions and Financial Enterprises, as the Service Provider is an independent commercial agent acting solely on behalf of the Partner, which is also entitled to conclude a contract between the Partner and the User (Guest).
The Partner acknowledges and accepts that the Service Provider is entitled, at its sole discretion, to determine – subject to the Partner's prior information as set out in these Terms and Conditions – a set of conditions that may be imposed by the Platform and the offers of other Partners, or to influence the order in which they are found ("Ranking"). The ranking criteria are multi-factorial; factors include but are not limited to: the amount of the Commission paid (payable) by the Partner, the ratio of visitors on the accommodation sub-page on the Platform to the number of Reservations ("Conversions"), the number of Reservations, the cancellation rate, the score of the Guest Reviews, the number and type of guest complaints, and the Partner's payment discipline rating. The priority of these key parameters over other potential parameters is justified by their technical priority. A Partner with a higher conversion rate, commission level, booking rate, guest rating (score), customer service quality and payment discipline, and a lower cancellation rate and number of guest complaints, may be ranked higher in the ranking. The criteria are based on pre-defined criteria, applied uniformly to all Partners along the defined criteria and automated.
The Partner can monitor the evolution of each factor through the Administration Interface. In view of the above, the Partner may not raise any objections, claims or assert any claims against the Ranking, the order of priority resulting from it or the individual factors on which the Ranking is based. You may not take any action to influence the order of the results by artificial or manipulative means or by circumventing the provisions of the GTC. Any breach of these provisions shall constitute a serious breach of contract.
The Partner expressly authorizes the Service Provider to use the parameters of the Offer uploaded by the Partner on the Administration Interface (including any photos, illustrations, data and information, protected or protectable signs, images,) for the purpose of increasing the number of Reservations, to communicate the Offer to the public online and offline and promote it on online and offline platforms, in the manner and duration determined by the Service Provider. To appear on Other Platforms, other than the Platform, the policies of the respective Other Platform shall also apply to the publication.
The Service Provider is entitled, but not obliged, to make the Offer available in a foreign language. If the Service Provider has prepared a description of the accommodation in a foreign language, it shall provide the Partners with the opportunity to choose in the Administration Interface whether the description prepared by them or by the Service Provider shall be displayed in the respective language. The Service Provider is entitled to provide a foreign language presentation containing only the relevant elements of the Offer. Such foreign languages may include English, German, Slovak, Czech, Polish, Romanian and Croatian. A translation into another language does not change the law governing the contract. The presentation is independent of the language in which you use the Administration Interface.
The Service Provider is entitled to organize a "Sweepstakes" or "Promotion" in connection with the Service. The Service Provider and the Partner may conclude a separate or supplementary agreement on this.
The Partner acknowledges and accepts that the Service Provider may, at its discretion, create Recognition Awards (e.g.: Excellent Accommodation Logo, Accommodation of the Year Award), which may be awarded to Partners or other partners of the Service Provider in accordance with the criteria set by the Service Provider. The Recognition Titles may be used by the Partner within the time frame determined by the Service Provider. In the absence of a separate revocation, the right to use the Recognition Titles shall automatically terminate upon termination of the Agreement. In such case, the Partner may no longer use or display the Recognition Award anywhere.
The Partner shall ensure that they can be contacted by the Service Provider at the telephone or e-mail contact details provided to the Service Provider for consultation, contact or quality assurance purposes. The Partner undertakes to provide the Service Provider with relevant information in the course of such inquiries. Unless otherwise provided for in the GTC, the Partner is obliged to fulfil its obligation to provide information within 5 working days of the request by the Service Provider at the latest. A repeated breach of the above contact and data provision rules shall be considered a serious breach of contract.
The Service Provider is entitled to send promotional and advertising materials about its own products or services or those of its partners (third parties) other than the Partner to the e-mail address provided by the Partner.
The Partner is obliged to notify the Service Provider of any problem or circumstance that arises due to a reason in the Partner's interest and temporarily or permanently affecting or preventing the service provided to the Guest or the cooperation, the communication with the Service Provider, the use of the Platform or that of the Administration Interface (e.g.: renovation, maintenance, malfunction, unavailability of a room or service for any reason, insufficient Internet connection, change of e-mail address, telephone number, etc.). The Partner is liable for any damages resulting from the failure to notify the Service Provider.
The Partners are prohibited from using any systems or solutions that may interfere with the Service, Platform or the servers used for the operation of the Administration Interface, or which otherwise endanger the intended operation of the Platform.
The Service Provider reserves the right to modify or discontinue any Intellectual Property Product and/or any element of the Service on the Platform at its sole discretion.
The Partner acknowledges that the User and/or the Guest may (i) learn about the Offers, request further information about the Offers (ii) share the Offers, information with others on known social networking sites - Facebook, Twitter - or send them by e-mail or on any other communication channels (iii) write opinions, comments, reviews about the Partner's Offer and/or the services used by the Guest ("User Content") and (iv) make Reservations as indicated in the Offer, up to the available capacity (dates and places) indicated therein.
The Partner's Offer
The Partner will provide information, data and photos relating to the Offer through the Administration Interface. When entering the name of the accommodation, the basic formal requirements must be met.
When uploading and providing information, the Partner is obliged to provide actual and truthful data. The Partner declares that any data, information, text, images, videos or other intellectual property and any part thereof that the Partner may otherwise communicate or upload on or in connection with the Administration Interface or the Service are correct, accurate, complete and true, and that the Partner is entitled to upload them. The Partner undertakes to include all data and information that is required by applicable law or regulation or that is otherwise relevant to the Users or the Service Provider in relation to the Service. The Partner shall provide the prices in gross value (net + VAT). As long as the Partner does not set other prices in the Administration Interface or does not use a channel manager service, the Service Provider is entitled to upload the Partner's standard list prices to the Administration Interface. As long as the Partner does not change the prices thus uploaded to the Administration Interface or does not use a channel manager service, the Users will be able to book the Partner's Offer at the standard list prices as set out above for 365 days in advance from the day of opening of the respective Offer by the User.
The Service Provider has the right, but not the obligation, to correct any incorrect or inaccurate data provided by the Partner. If the data provided by the Partner is systematically untrue or incorrect, this shall constitute a serious breach of contract and shall constitute grounds for termination. The Partner declares and warrants that the advertisements ordered under the Media Offer are not subject to any advertising prohibitions or restrictions, in particular the provisions of Act XLVIII of 2008 on the Basic Conditions and Certain Restrictions of Economic Advertising Activities and Act XLVII of 2008 on the Prohibition of Unfair Commercial Practices against Consumers. The Service Provider does not undertake any obligation to adapt the Offers in accordance with the applicable legal provisions. The Service Provider may omit or reformulate data that violate the provisions of the Contract.
The Service Provider does not assume any responsibility or liability for the display of the Offer or for the failure to display the Offer if the Partner uploads or provides data or information related to the Offer incompletely or incorrectly, or if the display is in violation of the rules of the GTC.
The Partner undertakes to use the Administration Interface to keep the information and data relating to its Offer, including data on available and reserved capacities, up to date and current.
In order to avoid that the Partner uses the services of the Service Provider as an advertising platform, which is intended to direct the Users to the Partner's own website, and thus to use the marketing services provided by the Service Provider free of charge, the Partner undertakes that the terms and conditions of the Offer are not less favourable than the terms and conditions published on its own website ("Parity Requirements") with regard to pricing and capacity availability. Any breach of the following Parity Requirements shall constitute a serious breach of contract and the Partner shall immediately remedy the breach upon notice to do so:
The Partner shall not set a higher price in its Offer for its accommodation, rooms and services with the same parameters and characteristics (e.g., comfort level, room type, number of beds, meal types and services, conditions of use, cancellation and modification conditions, seasonality, validity, special conditions) than the price it applies and advertises on its own website ("Price Identity"). Conduct which seeks to circumvent the above is prohibited (e.g., where a Partner provides partially different information, features or service elements in its Offer and on its own website in respect of its accommodation, room or service package in order to formally circumvent the undertaking to provide price identity). Where the Partner entrusts the operation of the website to another person but the website is operated in the interest of the Partner, the website shall also be deemed to be the Partner's own website.
If the Partner does not specify its prices in Hungarian forints in its own offers, but also indicates them in Hungarian forint equivalents, they shall calculate the Hungarian forint equivalent in accordance with the previous day's MNB central rate in order to comply with the Price Identity ("Forint Equivalence").
If the Partner also uses another service similar to the Online Platform Service from a third party, the Partner ensures that the same amount of free capacity (bookable space / service) is available on the Platform at a given time for a given Offer as on any other site. (“Capacity Identity”)
The Partner is not subject to the requirement of Price Identity when offering its prices to Closed Consumer Groups, provided that (i) the prices are not widely or fully disclosed, either directly or indirectly, and (ii) the prices offered within the group are provided to persons who have already used the Partner's services at least once as a member of the Closed Consumer Groups.
If the Service Provider itself has a Closed Consumer Group, it will inform the Partner accordingly. The Service Provider shall be entitled to provide a discount to its Closed Consumption Group to an extent not exceeding its commission, but at all times at its own expense.
The terms and conditions set out in this clause may be completed by additional terms and conditions in the Annex.
At the time of registration or subsequently in the Administration Interface, the Partner may choose to use either the real-time booking system (hereinafter referred to as the "Real-Time System") or the confirmation-based booking system (hereinafter referred to as the "Confirmation System")
In case of a Real-Time System, Users can make immediate reservations on the Platform for available dates set and kept up to date by the Partner, at the prices and conditions displayed in the Partner's Offer with regard to the Offers uploaded by the Partner at any given time. The Partner is responsible for keeping the data displayed on the Platform up to date.
The reservation made by the User will be automatically accepted in the form of a response message. In case of incorrect information, the reservation cannot be refused. The reply message shall constitute a contract between the Guest and the Partner at the prices and conditions displayed in the relevant Offer in the real-time reservation system managed by the Partner, up to the maximum available capacities defined by the Partner.
In the case of the Confirmation System, after the User sends a booking request, the Service Provider sends an automatic e-mail message to the User with the subject "reservation request" on behalf of the Partner, which message is not considered as confirmation of the booking. If the Partner accepts the booking request made by the User (directly through the administration interface or indirectly in consultation with the Service Provider), the Service Provider will notify the User by an automatic e-mail message, which will establish the Reservation and the contract between the Partner and the User. If the Partner refuses the User's booking request, the Service Provider is entitled to offer the User other accommodation options.
If the Partner contacts the User with an offer other than the booking request instead of a confirmation, this shall be considered as a rejection by the Partner of the original booking request made by the User and the initiation of a new booking. If the (new booking) offer is accepted by the User, the Reservation and the contract between the Partner and the User are concluded, and the Service Provider is entitled to a Commission based on the content of the offer.
The Service Provider does not assume any obligation to produce results for the Service. The Service Provider shall not be liable for the initiation or the number of reservations made by Users. The Partner may not assert any claims against Service Provider in connection with the failure to achieve such a result, including, without limitation, claims for damages and loss of profit.
46. If an Offer was published at an incorrect price with a numerical error and it is clearly recognisable to the User, and the Reservation was made at this incorrect price, the Partner shall be entitled, with the consent of the Service Provider, to reject the resulting Reservation. The Service Provider is also entitled to cancel the Reservation made at an incorrect price. The party who initiates the cancellation of the Reservation shall inform the Guest of the cancellation and the reason for it, as well as the other party (Service Provider or Partner). Any deposit or other charges already paid during the Reservation will be refunded to the Guest.
In the event of a connection outside the Platform after the Reservation (sending a reply message to the Guest) which changes the terms and conditions of the original Reservation, the Partner is obliged to inform the Service Provider about the content of any changes. Such conditions may include, in particular, the following: modified date or duration, different number of Guests, modified package, etc. Violation of these provisions shall be considered a serious breach of contract.
The Partner shall immediately notify Service Provider if it is unable to fulfil its original contractual obligation towards the Guest. In such a case, the Partner shall be obliged to provide the Guest with the same or a higher standard of accommodation as a substitute service without any extra charge ("Substitute Service"). The Substitute Service must have the same basic characteristics as the original service (number, comfort level, location of the accommodation, geographical distance, location within the municipality, areas for independent use). Any additional costs incurred in using the Substitute Service shall be borne by the Partner (e.g. the difference in price between the original and alternative accommodation, reimbursement of the additional travel costs of the Guest concerned by the reservation or the travel to the alternative accommodation, etc.).
If the service provided by the Partner does not correspond to the service detailed in the Offer, the Reservation or the amended contract agreed with the Guest, or if the Partner is unable to provide a Substitute Service or the Guest does not accept it, the Partner shall indemnify or compensate the Guest for any adverse consequences, damages and costs incurred by the Guest in connection with the above. The compensation or indemnity to which the Guest is entitled shall be paid at the time the event occurs. In the cases regulated in this clause, the Partner shall notify and inform the Service Provider. The Partner is obliged to indemnify the Service Provider against all claims, costs and damages incurred against the Service Provider in connection with the above. This provision shall also apply in the event that the Partner has a real-time booking system and fails to comply, or does not fully comply, with its obligation to update the real-time booking system. Any breach of this clause shall constitute a serious breach of contract.
The Partner agrees that if the Partner fails to fully indemnify or compensate the Guest within 7 working days of the occurrence of the event, the Service Provider may (at its own discretion) pay the compensation to which the Guest is entitled on behalf of the Partner and invoice the Partner the amount of the compensation.
If, based on the Guest's information, the Partner is not available through the contact details provided and the Service Provider is unable to contact them in writing and by telephone within 7 days, the Guest has the right to withdraw from the Reservation without penalty.
The Service Provider shall not be liable for any damage caused by the Guest to the Partner or any other third party, in particular for any failure to use the accommodation or for any breach of the terms and conditions of use.
52. If the Guest has paid the deposit for the Reservation directly to the Partner and the deposit or part of it is to be returned to the Guest due to any failure of the Reservation, the Partner shall repay the deposit directly to the Guest immediately upon the failure, but no later than 7 days after the failure. The amount to be repaid may not be reduced by any bank or other transaction costs incurred by the partner in making the repayment.
Relationship of the Service Provider with Users and Guests
The Service Provider operates a telephone customer service for Users and Guests in connection with the Service. The operation of the customer service by the Service Provider does not exempt the Partner from fulfilling its obligations towards the Guests.
The Service Provider has the right to contact the User or Guest by telephone, SMS or any other means of contact recorded in the system in connection with other requests for offers not yet answered by the Partner, related to the operation of the Platform.
The Service Provider is entitled to contact the Guests in order to:
inform the Guest of the existence of the contract between the Guest and the Partner and of the obligations arising from it;
provide information on the use of the accommodation service;
consult them for information about their reservation and the services.

The Partner accepts that the Service Provider is entitled to publish the Guest's opinion by filling out the online questionnaire, which is part of the Platform and which facilitates objective evaluation, after the Guest has used the accommodation.
The Service Provider is not obliged, but entitled, to contact the Partner in connection with complaints reported by the Guest and to investigate the Guest's report.
For the use of the Online Platform Service, the Partner shall pay the Service Provider a commission for the actual payment obligation of the Reservations and/or the Guest to the Partner, as set out below.
The Service Provider is entitled to the commission if:
the Reservation has been successfully realized;
the Partner fails to notify Szallas.hu Zrt. in due time that the Guest has contractually cancelled the reservation;
the Partner mistakenly or negligently fails to provide actual and true information through the Administration Interface;
the Guest has actually used the service, but the Partner has mistakenly or for some other reason claimed otherwise in the Administration Interface;
the Guest has otherwise incurred a payment obligation to the Partner under the contract between the Guest and the Partner as a result of the cancellation of the Reservation;
the contract between the Partner and the Guest is amended by omitting the Service Provider’s system.
Net Commission basis:
for points 59(a) to (d), the total gross consideration for the Reservations (including supplementary services, provided meal type); and
for points 59e) to 54.f), the actual payment obligation of the Guest to the Partner (e.g. penalty, cancellation fee or value of the services actually used).
The Commission rate is determined based on the location and category of the accommodation; the Commission rate will be published in the Additional Terms and Conditions for the country where the accommodation is located. The rate of the Commission is accepted by the Partner during the registration process, about which the Service Provider informs the Partner in the e-mail confirming their registration, and it is also available on the Administration Interface. The Partner may adjust the level of the Commission at will - upwards from the basic expected level - in order to improve the ranking of the Offer. The unilateral modification of the commission by the Service Provider is subject to the rules of the modification of the GTC as set out in clause XVI.
If the Guest cancels the Reservation before the planned occupation (use) of the accommodation with the cancellation conditions provided by the Partner and no payment obligation arises towards the Partner, the relevant Reservation will be cancelled and the Service Provider will not receive any commission. If the Guest has not cancelled the Reservation via the customer service of the Service Provider or via the online interface created for this purpose, the Partner is entitled and obliged to report the Guest's cancellation by the 10th day of the following month and to confirm the cancellation to the Service Provider by the Guest's cancellation declaration. Commission reconciliation shall take place via the Administration Interface (Billing / Szallas.hu (or RevNGo) reconciliation).
In the event that the Guest has actually used the service, but the Partner has mistakenly or otherwise stated the opposite in the Administration Interface, the Service Provider may exercise its rights under the GTC and is entitled to the Commission. The Partner may prove that their setting was not incorrect by sending the Guest's cancellation declaration to the Service Provider
The terms and conditions set out in this point may be accompanied by additional terms and conditions in the Annex.
The Service Provider shall send the Partner an invoice for commissions and other fees on a monthly basis or at the intervals specified in the ACT, Media Offer or other agreement of the Parties, for successfully realized and cancelled Reservations, if subject to payment, and for any other services used in the previous month for which payment is due.
Standard invoicing method: electronic invoice via e-mail. The Partner will receive the electronic invoice to the e-mail address provided by the Partner. In the event that the Partner informs the Service Provider in writing that they do not wish to receive an electronic invoice, the Service Provider will issue a paper invoice.

Payment by bank transfer shall be made to the bank account number specified in point XIX of these GTC. The Service Provider shall provide the possibility of payment by bank card through a bank service provider in the Administration Interface.

In the event of a breach of payment obligations towards the Service Provider, the provisions of Section XV shall apply.
The Partner may lodge a written complaint within seven working days of receipt of the invoice. The Partner must clearly state the reasons for the invoice complaint and attach all supporting documents. The Service Provider will examine and decide on its acceptance within five working days.

These provisions shall also apply to persons employed or otherwise engaged in an employment relationship with the Parties.

The Service Provider shall forward the personal data of the Guests to the Partner based on the consent of the Guests solely for the purpose of fulfilling the Contract, the Partner shall not forward such data to third parties and shall not use such data for other purposes (e.g. advertising, direct contact with the Guests). The Service Provider and the Partner agree that the Service Provider shall not be liable for the lawfulness of the processing of this data by the Partner after the data has been transferred to the Partner, and the Partner undertakes and warrants that it will process the Guest's data, including the data recorded by the Partner, within the legal framework, for the purpose and for the permitted and necessary duration. The Service Provider does not provide any information to the Guests in connection with the Partner's data management, only the Partner is obliged to do so. The Partner shall be liable and shall indemnify the Service Provider against any claims and damages arising from the Partner's breach of these data protection provisions.

The Partner provides the data and has the right to modify or delete it. It is the sole responsibility of the Partner to ensure that the data is provided lawfully when using the Service and on the basis of proper information of the individuals concerned. The Service Provider is not obliged to verify the existence of such information. The Partner shall be liable for and shall indemnify the Service Provider against any claims and damages arising from the Partner's breach of the above provisions.

The Partner expressly acknowledges and accepts this.
If the Partner does not terminate the Agreement (or, if the amendment concerns a part of the Agreement which is severable and independently terminable, only that part) within 15 days of the publication of the amendment, it shall be deemed to have accepted the amendment.
