The right of withdrawal can be exercised by using the revocation form template available at https://nuki.io/en/service-shop/refunding/ and provided to the User together with the information on revocation.

    The revocation declaration does not require a specific form; it may be sent by post or e-mail to
    Nuki Home Solutions GmbH
    Münzgrabenstrasse 92/4,
    A-8010 Graz
    Austria
    Fax: +43 316 22 84 12 50
    Email: contact@nuki.io

  2. Dispatch of the revocation notice by the specified deadline shall suffice to observe the revocation period.

If a User is not able to return the services rendered to Nuki in full or in part, Nuki shall be reimbursed for the value lost. Users shall therefore fulfill any payment obligations until cancellation has become effective. Obligations to reimburse costs must be fulfilled within 30 days.

  5. Revocation instruction:. The revocation instruction and the revocation form available to the Customer (that is, however, not mandatory) are enclosed in Annex 1 to these GTC. At contract formation (e.g. in the course of placing an order), Users confirm that they’ve been informed about their cancellation rights.

§ 10 Warranty and liability

Our warranty and liability are restricted. We do not accept any liability for the content of third-party Websites the links of which are quoted under tips and recommendations.

  1. Nuki provides its services on the basis of generally valid industry sector norms and practises. However, Users are aware that, pursuant to current state of the art, it is not possible to render web-based services that are completely free of faults or errors. Nuki does not represent or warrant that the Website will be available at all times, or that it and the necessary hardware and software will be completely free of errors.
  2. Network outages, disruptions, maintenance work or other events, which are unavoidable and for which Nuki bears no responsibility, may give rise to interruptions of service. In such cases, Nuki shall exert reasonable efforts to the best of its knowledge and ability to eliminate faults and disruptions as quickly as is possible in technical and economic terms.
  3. Nuki assumes no liability or warranty whatsoever for the correctness of the data forwarded to it by Members, such as details regarding their identity, addresses, qualifications, references or creditworthiness. Furthermore, Nuki cannot guarantee that data transfer via external systems, in particular the internet or telecommunications networks, will not be tracked, recorded or falsified by third parties.
  4. Use of the Product Portfolio shall be at Users own risk. This applies to the unlimited use of hardware (e.g. personal smartphones, Nuki Smart Lock and/or Nuki accessories etc) as well as downloading of the User’s own and third party content.
  5. Additionally, Nuki does not make any representations or warranties with respect to external links, banners or other information and marketing offers that may be made accessible to the user. Any contractual arrangements entered into between the User and a third party provider, e.g., via linked websites or banners, result in a contractual relationship between such User and the third party provider only. Nuki does not make any representations or warranties with respect to products or services of third party providers.
  6. Nuki further assumes no warranty with respect to errors or other outages on the Website or the Member Account, to the extent that these are the result of:
    • errors of the hardware, the operating system or software of other manufacturers or wireless telephony providers;
    • errors of use, irrespective of the type thereof, and which could have been avoided if proper and careful use had been made;
    • infection with computer viruses or other external influences for which Nuki bears no responsibility, such as fire, accidents, power outages etc.;
    • unauthorised modification by the Counterparty or third parties to the system environment for which the Website or the Member Account was configured.
  7. Nuki shall bear liability within the scope of applicable tort laws caused by executive officers, employees, vicarious agents or other persons engaged to provide services to counterparties only where behaviour of Nuki or personnel attributable to Nuki is evidenced to be intentional or grossly negligent. Liability for slight negligence is excluded, except for damages to life and limb.
  8. Unless required by statutory law, neither Nuki nor any of its business affiliates shall be liable for damages resulting from the use of content made accessible through the use of the Product Portfolio. This also applies to damages resulting from errors, problems, viruses or loss of data.

The Registered User is solely responsible for any damages caused by such materials to his computer system or for information that is lost as a consequence of downloading materials from the Website.
  10. Users remain exclusively liable for any claims of lawsuits of any kind in any way derived from or related to conflicts with other users. The User acknowledges and accepts that Nuki will not, under any circumstances, be liable for the acts and omissions of other users, including the damages associated with such acts or omissions.
  11. Events of force majeure which render the provision of the contractual services significantly more difficult or impossible shall entitle Nuki to defer its performance of the contractual obligations by a period of time equal to the period of the impediment plus a reasonable grace period. The following events are considered as equivalent to force majeure: strikes, lock-outs, interventions of public authorities for which Nuki bears no responsibility, and similar circumstances, provided that they are unforeseeable, not susceptible, controllable and not due to default. In such cases, Nuki shall likewise bear no liability.

    • react to claims of breaches of law raised by third parties; or
    • safeguard the rights, property or personal safety of Nuki, its Users and the general public.
  5. The user grants Nuki the irrevocable, free, non-exclusive and unlimited right to use all content generated, transmitted, saved and published by such user. Accordingly, Nuki shall have the right to use, irrespective of the type of usage, all content as part of the service offer and any other activity of Nuki or any company affiliated with Nuki. This shall include the right to change and edit such content, unless such changes or edits impair material interests of the User. In this connection, the User waives, to the extent legally permissible, all Intellectual Property rights. However, to the extent feasible, in the event that Nuki uses content created by a user outside the Website, Nuki shall note that such content was created by the User.
  6. Users warrant that content uploaded to and communicated by them via the Website shall
    • be free of rights of third parties, in particular of Intellectual Property rights;
    • be their own (Intellectual) Property or be subject to proper authorisation by a third Party with entitlement to give such authorisation to use the content in question via the Website;
    • not breach applicable law or other applicable binding statutes and in addition
    • not be apt in any manner to give rise to legal obligations (liability) on the part of Nuki.
  7. The User shall hold harmless and indemnify Nuki from and against any third party claims raised because of an alleged breach of proprietary rights due to content being uploaded by the User within the Nuki network or due to any other use of applications available throught the Nuki network. User shall bear the costs of a legal representation that becomes necessary including but not limited to court- and lawyer’s expenses up to the amount required by law. This, however, shall not apply if the alleged infringement is not attributable to culpable behaviour of the User.
  8. The User shall promptly and correctly inform Nuki of any third party claim and provide any information available and relevant for an examination of the claims and for an adequate defence. Any damage claims beyond this scope that Nuki may have vis-à-vis the User shall remain unaffected.
  9. Nuki does not claim ownership of any content and will not supervise such content.
  10. Nuki reserves the right to delete content created by Users, such as routes, events or comments without giving reasons. In this event, the user shall be notified and, in the event of a breach of these GTC, may be sanctioned.
  11. Nuki shall not be responsible for inaccurate content created by Users.

§ 12 Compensation, terms of payment

Unless otherwise agreed, our services are subject to a fee. By registering with us, Users agree to the service fees and price schemes of Nuki.

  1. Pricing of Nuki is based on customary calculations and refers to the scope of services, the Product Portfolio in particular, requested by a User.
  2. All prices are denominated in euros. Delivery costs, if any, shall be charged separately and apply only to the present contract.
  3. As a rule, payments demanded are due upon receipt of an invoice on the due date indicated in the invoice or, in the absence of such due date, within seven calendar days following receipt of the invoice by the User. The invoiced amount shall be credited to the bank account indicated in the invoice on the due date, at the latest. Use of Products shall be conditional upon settlement of open accounts with Nuki; the latter may withhold provision of Services until payment has been received.
  4. Payment shall be deemed received on the date the amount is available to Nuki or credited to the bank account indicated on the invoice. In case of delayed payments, Nuki shall charge legal default interest as of the 15th -day following the invoice date, unless costs in excess thereof have been incurred. Dunning, enquiry and other costs incurred in the context of recovering a claim shall be born by the User. This shall not restrict Nuki to assert any further damages if applicable.
  5. Nuki accepts credit cards, online payment (Paypal, online-banking) as well as down payments. The Customer shall bear all expenses arising in connection with payment transactions.
  6. The User waives his right to set off any counterclaims against compensation claims, unless these counterclaims have been acknowledged by Nuki in writing or determined by a court. Moreover, the Member may not withhold payments on the grounds of incomplete total delivery, guarantee or warranty claims or complaints.
  7. All tax liabilities arising from or pertaining to payments to Nuki, except income tax, shall be born solely by the User. The Customer shall hold harmless and indemnify Nuki for any wrongful assertion of such tax claims.

§ 13 Software

In the event that we provide software you will be entitled to use the software with a limited User license. The software shall in any case be subject to a final User license agreement that specifies the provisions in detail.

  1. To the extent software is made available to the User, the User shall, for the period and purpose of using the services, be granted a non-exclusive and non-transferable license, that must not be used for commercial purposes (e.g. granting of sub-licenses), for the use of the software for private purposes and in conformity with any final User provisions.
  2. With the exception of the right to make a backup copy, the User (to the extent permissible by law) shall not be allowed to duplicate, publish or distribute the software or the relevant documents or make them available to third parties by any other means beyond what is considered usual and common scope.

§ 14 Mobile applications, technical requirements

Smooth and trouble-free use of our services requires that you have modern technology available and Internet access. We are unable to guarantee protection from viruses and other technical risks; we do not assume any liability for uninterrupted or trouble-free access to our services.

  1. Mobile applications (Apps) of Nuki are only available to owners of smartphones (see § 4). Please note that these GTC neither replace nor amend the general terms of use and conditions of business of smartphone suppliers that consequently apply to the User without restriction.
  2. Internet access and a correspondingly modern device including browser are required to use the Product Portfolio; the equipment needs to be capable of presenting the graphics of the App and/or Website. Data traffic resulting from the use of the services and Products of Nuki is substantial and may cause costs, especially for mobile use of the services. Nuki therefore recommends a flat rate. Costs and risk of Internet data traffic shall be assumed by the User exclusively.
  3. The User is aware of the fact that, due to the technical nature of the Internet, it is impossible to ensure complete protection from viruses, trojans, spyware, etc. Nuki is therefore unable to warrant such protection. Nuki does not provide any warranty for specific availability of services and Products and expressly reserves the right to interrupt them for technical or other reasons.
  4. Nuki is unable to warrant that access to the Product Portfolio will be available at all times and free from any problems. Nuki shall not be liable for failures, disruptions and/or impairment for which Nuki is not accountable. Consequently, it shall be the User’s responsibility to carry out regular updates of the software used by him, save his data regularly, install appropriate virus protection and effective firewall systems.

§ 15 Privacy Policy

Users are called upon to consider Nuki’s Privacy Policy available on https://nuki.io/en/service/privacy/ zu beachten.

Where notices are transmitted as between Nuki and a Member or between Members inter se by email and thus in electronic form, the Member is deemed to acknowledge the unrestricted effectiveness of statements of intent transmitted by this means. The email must contain the name and email address of the sender as well as the time of dispatch (date and time).
