On the basis of the present GTC, agreements under the Inlernet System may only be concluded with contracted Product Partners; the present GTC is not applicable to external companies. The list of current Product Partners can be found on the Inlernet Website (www.inlernet.com).

5.3. Purchases made by cash, bank transfer, and banking card, which differ from those set forth in Section 5.2, may be validated in the Inlernet System only if following receipt of the purchase certificate (e.g. invoice, receipt, bill), Frequent Buyer quotes her/his Inlernet System Frequent Buyer ID to the Product Partner. After this, the Product Partner shall register purchase data in its Product Partner Web Office within 30 calendar days, as prescribed by the Contract for Product Partners.
Vouchers obtained by Frequent Buyer from sources other than Inlernet or any of the companies in the Inlernet Corporate Group, or not obtained through the mediation of Inlernet (in particular vouchers issued directly by the Product Partner), or if the vouchers were not issued by Inlernet through any of its voucher issuance Systems, shall not entitle their holders the procure goods and services in an automatically validatable way within the Inlernet System. With the above vouchers, Frequent Buyer may not benefit automatically from discounts set forth herein, and they shall not give rise to any obligations whatsoever for Inlernet to automatically provide services, commissions, or discounts until these purchase data are not registered in the Inlernet System by the Product Partner (as with non-voucher payment methods), and until the commission invoice sent to the Product Partner is not settled.
5.4. For the procurement of goods and services, Inlernet issues a so-called “online” (that is, accessible only through the Internet) voucher, or allows for the print-out of a copy thereof. In all cases, such vouchers shall be issued in the currency of the country where the Product Partner’s store is located.
5.5. None of the voucher types issued by Inlernet shall be considered the provision of services.

5.6. Inlernet online records, and electronically archives, vouchers in the Inlernet System. When ordering any kind of Inlernet Vouchers, Frequent Buyer must provide the information of the Product Partner (exact name of store, Product Partner ID) where s/he intends to purchase goods and/or procure services, and therefore, intends to redeem the voucher.
5.7. Frequent Buyer has the right to order Inlernet Online Vouchers and/or Product Partner Vouchers from Inlernet, as described above. Frequent Buyer has the right to request the issuing of the vouchers in her/his personal Web Office on the Inlernet Website, using her/his personal Frequent Buyer ID and password (in case of Online Vouchers). Frequent Buyer acknowledges that in order to be issued, the requested vouchers must be of a value of at least HUF 5,000, that is, five thousand Hungarian Forints. Inlernet undertakes to issue the Inlernet Online Voucher and to deliver the Product Partner Voucher only if all the following criteria are met simultaneously:

- the consideration for the requested voucher has been deposited to, and registered on, the bank account of Inlernet; Frequent Buyer has thus paid for the whole value of the voucher in the course of ordering, which is registered to Inlernet within the Inlernet System,
- in case an order for Product Partner Voucher was placed, the Product Partner has sent the voucher to Inlernet following placement of the order.
Following the issuing of a given Online Voucher to Frequent Buyer, Inlernet sends a copy thereof to the Product Partner without delay.
5.8. Inlernet is obliged to transfer consideration for the voucher, minus Inlernet’s commission, to the Product Partner after the Online Voucher was issued or the Product Partner Voucher was received.
5.9. Inlernet Vouchers are not transferable to, or to the benefit of, third parties.

If the copy of the Inlernet Online Voucher, or the Product Partner Voucher issued by the Product Partner is presented by Frequent Buyer, the Product Partner is obliged to sell goods or provide services within the framework of the Inlernet System, the detailed regulations of which are contained in the agreement concluded between Inlernet and the Product Partner.
5.10. Inlernet Vouchers entitle Frequent Buyer only to procure goods and services, and to receive rebates on the prices of goods and services, only at the Product Partner indicated on the voucher, and in the value indicated thereon. There is no cash or cash substitute alternative to Inlernet Vouchers, they may not be used at other (not contracted) salespersons, Inlernet, or any of the companies in the Inlernet Corporate Group.
5.11. Frequent Buyer expressly acknowledges that once the voucher order is placed with Inlernet and/or the voucher is paid for, the voucher order, and thus the voucher, may not be withdrawn or invalidated, consideration for the voucher may not be reclaimed, and the voucher may not be transferred to another Product Partner or replaced by another voucher. Once the Inlernet Voucher is issued, Frequent Buyer may only redeem it at the contracted Product Partner for purchasing the goods and/or procuring the services requested.
5.12. Frequent Buyer shall have the opportunity to pay retainers on vouchers by paying the value of the retainer, set forth in Appendix 1 of the present GTC, for the voucher to Inlernet. Frequent Buyer acknowledges and expressly accepts that Inlernet shall pay commissions to Frequent Buyer and to other Frequent Buyers registered with the Inlernet System from the value of the retainer paid by her/him, since retainers forms contributes toward the consideration for the purchase voucher issued by Inlernet, therefore following payment, it shall be at Inlernet’s disposal. The value of the retainer shall be deposited by Inlernet to a deposit account, among others as a guarantee for the payment of commissions.
Frequent Buyers declare that they are familiar with the rules of down payment set out in 6:185 of Act V of 2013 on the Civil Code, and in light of this fact, they take note of the fact that they cannot reclaim the down payment on Inlerten Purchase Vouchers. Frequent Buyer asserts that s/he is familiar with regulations governing retainers as set forth in Sections 243, 244, and 245 of Act IV of 1959 on the Civil Code of Hungary; in this regard s/he also acknowledges that if s/he has only paid a retainer for an Inlernet Voucher, then the retainer may not be reclaimed. However, Frequent Buyer shall at any time have the opportunity to amend the retainer for the voucher ordered by her/him to the total value of the voucher by paying the remaining sum to Inlernet in order to be able to request an Inlernet Voucher to the given Product Partner and to redeem it at the Product Partner. In accordance with this, a total voucher value (subject to change depending on the rebate offered by the Product Partner) corresponds to each voucher retainer sum paid; such voucher values can be found in the Voucher Value Table in Appendix 2 of the present GTC, which forms an integral part hereof.
Total values of vouchers in the above mentioned table shall be jointly determined by the rebate offered by the Product Partner selected in the course of payment of retainers for vouchers as well as by the sums of retainers. If Frequent Buyer claims only a part of the value of the voucher for which the retainer is paid, then the ratio of the sum of the retainer to be paid for the given voucher part and the total retainer value is proportionate to that of the value of the voucher part and the total voucher value, as indicated in the Voucher Value Table. Accordingly, the percentage difference between the value of the voucher part ordered and the total voucher value indicated in the Voucher Value Table equals that between the total and the usable value of the retainer. The remaining retainer sum may be used in accordance with the above for the future ordering of one or more voucher parts.
Following payment of the retainer, the selection of the Product Partner may be modified in the course of the payment of the total or partial value of the voucher. In this case, the value of the retainer to be used for the given voucher part may change in accordance with the above, since the rebate offered by the Product Partner may also change, which in turn determines the total voucher value.
Individual voucher values may be consolidated, or amended with voucher parts, in the course of the payment of the value of the voucher. In this case, multiple retainers paid for purchase vouchers may be consolidated, but only at the ratio of, and in accordance with, the total voucher value, set forth in Appendix 2 of GTC and determined by the rebate offered by the Product Partner, and the actual value of vouchers ordered and paid for.
Total voucher values for rebates not included in Appendix 2 of GTC shall be determined on the basis of the table, using proportionalization method.
5.13. Inlernet Online Vouchers are valid for three years from its issuing date. After the expiration of their term of validity, vouchers automatically become void without any legal action. If the term of validity has expired and the voucher was not used by Frequent Buyer, then s/he shall acknowledge that s/he may make no claims whatsoever to Inlernet or to any of the companies in the Inlernet Corporate Group. Such loss of claim enforcement shall not concern the fact that Frequent Buyer may request the transfer of the goods or the provision of the services in concern from the Product Partner before the expiry date, except when the selling of goods or service provision are of such nature that the performance thereof may not be claimed from the Product Partner anymore. Frequent Buyer shall have no right to take action against Inlernet or any of the companies in the Inlernet Corporate Group even if the Product Partner’s services or delivery are non-contractual or fails. Frequent Buyer acknowledges that the legal relationship regarding of the selling of goods and/or service provision shall be established only between her/him and the Product Partner. With regard to this reason as well, if the Product Partner delivers defectively, fails to deliver, or otherwise breaches the contract, then Frequent Buyer shall not be entitled to reclaim the value of the voucher, request the replacement of the voucher or the issuing thereof to another Product Partner, or make any other claims to Inlernet or to any company in the Inlernet Corporate Group even during the above term of validity for these reasons.
5.14. Upon registration with the Inlernet System, Frequent Buyer shall learn her/his Frequent Buyer ID and Web Office password from an e-mail sent to the e-mail address provided.

5.15. The password provided by Inlernet and then changed by Frequent Buyer is of a strictly confidential nature. Inlernet may not be held liable in case Frequent Buyer fails to observe the rules for the management of confidential data, and for this reason, a third party misuses the above information to the detriment of Frequent Buyer. If Frequent Buyer detects any kind of misuse in connection with her/his own access or after logging in to the personal Web Office, then s/he shall be obliged to notify Inlernet of this within 1 day of the detection thereof via Inlernet’s official e-mail address. If as a result of the notification, Frequent Buyer’s information needs to be changed, then such new access information shall be delivered to her/him via e-mail.
5.16. Under those set forth herein, the Inlernet System shall only be aimed at, and limited to, establishing relationship between Frequent Buyer and the Product Partners as well as facilitating the flow of goods and services in the course of this relationship, and providing Inlernet Online Vouchers and Product Partner Vouchers facilitating the procurement of goods and services.
Frequent Buyer acknowledges that goods and services procured from contracted Product Partners originate only from Product Partners, and in this regard Inlernet shall assume no obligations or liability of any kind for delivery by, and the behavior of, Product Partners. Product Partners shall be held liable to Frequent Buyer for their delivery in accordance with the regulations on liability of the Hungarian civil and commercial law.
5.17. Inlernet shall offer no warranty of quality and title on products and services procured by Frequent Buyer from Product Partners through the Inlernet System.

In regard of her/his claims arising from the lack of conformity, Frequent Buyer must negotiate primarily with the Product Partner, or if this proves unsuccessful, with the Product Partner Referee of the Product Partner. Frequent Buyer is not entitled, by any virtue whatsoever, to devolve her/his claims made to the Product Partner regarding the selling of goods or provision of services to Inlernet, or to take action of any kind directly against Inlernet in order to enforce such claims. Frequent Buyer acknowledges that Inlernet is not entitled to take action in regard of claims for warranty of quality and title made under the agreement for the selling of goods and procurement of services entered into by Frequent Buyer and the Product Partner.

6. Benefits Arising from the Use of the Inlernet System
6.1. By participating in the Inlernet System, Frequent Buyer shall have the opportunity to participate in the preferential terms and conditions of purchase provided by Product Partners to Inlernet as well as to Frequent Buyers connected thereto, and to share such terms and conditions with Inlernet in the form of commissions, rebates, and other discounts.
Inlernet is not obliged to guarantee for the settlement of discounts, commissions, or rebates that are not paid to Inlernet by the Product Partner before deadline, which constitutes material breach of contract.
If default payment is made, or payment is made through debt collection, then Inlernet shall make such payments in arrears to those entitled to receipt. In case of default for reasons due to contractual breach by Product Partner Inlernet shall not be obliged to pay default interest to Frequent Buyer, and this shall be expressly disclaimed by the parties.
Given that the terms and conditions of the contract between Inlernet and the Product Partner may change over time, the parties expressly acknowledge that settlement of discounts, commissions, and rebates shall be performed on the basis of the terms and conditions of the contract concluded with the Product Partner in question effective as of the date of invoicing to the Product Partner. Inlernet undertakes to publish potential changes that may affect Frequent Buyer on its Website within 15 days of the modification of the Contract for Product Partners. In regard of this reason, Frequent Buyer acknowledges that during the above 15-day deadline, the Inlernet Website may contain potentially ineffective Product Partner terms and conditions, and Frequent Buyer shall not be entitled to make claims of any kind to Inlernet for this reason.
6.2. A detailed breakdown of discounts to which Frequent Buyer shall be entitled on the basis hereof are set forth in the numbered Appendices of the present GTC that can be found on the Inlernet Website. These Appendices form integral parts of the present GTC.
6.3.

Prior to the submission of official request for the use of the license plate, Frequent Buyer must seek permission from Inlernet to use the license plate. Following this, the use of the license plate starting with the letters “INET” may be requested from the relevant authorities; however, Inlernet cannot guarantee that such use is authorized. Inlernet shall not authorize the ordering and use of custom license plates from INET-01 to INET-06 for Frequent Buyer, as these license plates are reserved for Inlernet executives. Fees for requesting the use of license plates starting with the letters “INET” shall be borne by Frequent Buyer, not by Inlernet. Unauthorized use of license plates starting with the letters “INET” before reaching the Division Director Position may result in the immediate termination of the Contract for Frequent Buyers.
7. Fees Related to the Use of the Inlernet System
7.1. Frequent Buyer may participate in the Inlernet System free of charge. Transaction and other fees for purchases made shall not be charged to Frequent Buyer, except for those set forth in Section 7.3 as well as in the separate Costs & Charges Table and Notice.
7.2. Frequent Buyer may use the services of Inlernet through the Inlernet Website; no fees shall be payable by Frequent Buyer to Inlernet for using these services.
7.3. Frequent Buyer acknowledges that to Product Partners registered abroad, only Online Vouchers may be ordered (provided they are accepted by the Product Partner).

Sums in foreign currencies shall be exchanged at the median exchange rates offered by the Hungarian Central Bank (MNB) effective as of the day the transaction was recorded.
8. Modifying the Contract for Frequent Buyers
8.1. Frequent Buyers acknowledge and agree that these General Terms of Contract qualify as general terms of contract under Article 6:77 of the Civil Code which Inlernet has laid down in advance unilaterally without the involvement of the other party for the conclusion of more than one contract.
By signing the Contract for Frequent Buyers, Frequent Buyer also asserts and acknowledges that s/he familiarized her-/himself with the present GTC, and is aware that the provisions of GTC form parts of the Contract for Frequent Buyers. Moreover, Frequent Buyer accepts that given the extraordinary nature of the legal relationship, in certain cases the provisions of the present GTC may differ from standard contracting practices.
8.2. Modifications made to GTC and its Appendices by Inlernet shall in all cases be considered valid, effective, and approved by Frequent Buyer, if Frequent Buyer submits no written complaint against the given modification proposal within 30 days from receipt of written notice thereon, or continues using the Inlernet System following receipt of written notice.
Frequent Buyer acknowledges that Inlernet may not use more than one effective GTC at a time; therefore, if Frequent Buyer submits a complaint regarding the given modification of GTC within the above deadline, then Inlernet shall become entitled to terminate the Contract for Frequent Buyers on 15 days’ notice.
At all times, the text of GTC and its Appendixes found on the Inlernet Website must be considered the effective version. GTC and its Appendices may also be consulted in the Customer Service Office of Inlernet Hungary Partners Zrt.
8.3. Frequent Buyer acknowledges that Inlernet has the right to send any and all changes, modification proposals, regulations, business policies, notices, and newsletters to the e-mail address and phone number (via text message, if phone number is provided) provided by Frequent Buyer to Inlernet as well as to her/his Web Office and residential address.
9. Extinction of the Contract for Frequent Buyers
9.1. If Frequent Buyer ordered a voucher to a Product Partner, then following the issuing of the voucher Frequent Buyer shall not be entitled to avoidance hereof, or of voucher ordering, since by issuing the voucher, Inlernet has performed all its obligations hereunder in regard of the given legal transaction as set forth in Section 5.11 of the present GTC; thereafter, legal relationship exists only between the Product Partner and Frequent Buyer, therefore Frequent Buyer is entitled to exercise her/his right of avoidance only against the Product Partner.
Parties hereto agree that the parties are not entitled to exercise their rights of avoidance in regard hereof, including in regard of voucher ordering or the payment of retainers for vouchers.
If in spite of the above provision, a court ruling establishes that Frequent Buyer lawfully exercised her/his right of avoidance in relation hereto (following payment of retainers for purchase vouchers or of the total value of purchase vouchers), then unused sums of retainers for vouchers paid by Frequent Buyer to Inlernet or, in case of unredeemed vouchers paid for in full, the total value of the voucher paid shall be considered earnest money by the parties; therefore in case of avoidance, such sums may not be refunded to Frequent Buyer. Frequent Buyer expressly asserts that s/he is familiar with the concept of earnest money, expressly accepts the above rate thereof, and asserts that s/he shall initiate no legal disputes against Inlernet in relation thereto. Setting forth a forfeit clause is expressly reasonable since if the retainer paid for vouchers were used, Inlernet would gain economic leverage from the purchases made by Frequent Buyer at the Product Partner, which would be forfeited due to avoidance, and Inlernet provides services to Frequent Buyer and to other Frequent Buyers (payment of commission, provision of other leverages in accordance with the Appendices of the present GTC) the remuneration of which in case of avoidance can only be guaranteed through the application of earnest money.
9.2. Blanks of the present GTC and its Appendices as well as of the Contract for Frequent Buyers are identical to the contractual offer. Therefore, Inlernet shall notify Frequent Buyer within 8 calendar days on the acceptance of the completed proposal, or has the right to reject it without justification. The blank signed by Frequent Buyer shall be considered accepted by Inlernet (an agreement) after 8 calendar days, and a valid Contract for Frequent Buyers shall be concluded if Inlernet fails to notify Frequent Buyer on the rejection thereof. Frequent Buyer is only entitled to sign the contract blanks related hereto in person (and thus to the acceptance of the terms and conditions of contract published on the Internet). Frequent Buyer is not entitled to authorize the representative of another natural person or legal entity to sign the contract blanks. Bona fide false representation shall be excluded in regard of the signing of contract blanks, therefore blanks signed for Frequent Buyer by another party are null and void, and may be contested indefinitely. A person who enters into a Regular Customer Agreement in someone else's name in bad faith, with the falsification of signature, commits the misdemeanour of using false private documents under Article 345 of the Criminal Code. In case of a reasonable suspicion of a misdemeanor, Inlernet initiates criminal proceedings against an unknown perpetrator before the relevant investigating authority.
9.3. On the basis of the present GTC, the Contract for Frequent Buyers is concluded for an indefinite period. The Contract for Frequent Buyers may be terminated with 30 days’ notice, as of the end of any calendar month, by any of Parties hereto by sending a written statement to the other party.
9.4. Termination-related as well as other statements indicated herein must always be made in writing. Statements sent via postal mail, e-mail, through the Web Office, or by fax received by the other party shall be considered written statements.
Statements sent via postal mail shall be deemed delivered on the day of delivery if delivery was successful and on the day of attempted delivery if acceptance was refused. If delivery of the document failed because acceptance was refused (it was returned with the endorsement “unclaimed”), then the document shall be deemed delivered, unless proven otherwise, on the fifth working days after the second attempt to deliver. Statements sent via e-mail or fax shall be deemed delivered if addressee’s device sends an automatic confirmation on successful delivery to the sender or if addressee expressly confirms delivery in writing via any of the above devices.
During the notice period both parties are obliged to perform those set forth herein. At the end of the notice period Inlernet and Frequent Buyer pay off all commissions from completed advertisements and purchases. After this, former Frequent Buyer may not claim commissions and other discounts of any kind, and the accountability obligation of Inlernet shall become void. Frequent Buyer is obliged to return, within 15 days of termination of the contract, any and all documentation and Inlernet-specific printed matter to the Customer Service Office operated by the Hungarian subsidiary of Inlernet (14 Zivatar utca, 1024 Budapest, Hungary). Inlernet is entitled to claim damages arising from Frequent Buyer’s default of the performance of the above obligations. If Frequent Buyer terminates the present contract by ordinary notice, then following the expiry of the notice period, and subject to approval by Inlernet, s/he may re-register with the Inlernet System and conclude a new contract with Inlernet Worldwide AG. In this case only her/his original, pre-termination Referee may be her/his Referee, and s/he shall not repossess her/his previously established Frequent Buyer group, which shall be connected directly to her/his Referee. Inlernet may reject requests for repeated conclusion of contracts without justification.
9.5. Parties may also terminate the present contract immediately, if the other party is in material breach of any of its obligations arising herefrom, and fails to remedy such breach upon the other party’s written request, except if such breach is so severe that the other party may not reasonably expected to maintain the contractual relationship.
Beyond the above, Inlernet has the right to immediately terminate the present contract at any time in the following cases:
- Frequent Buyer fails to perform her/his data supply or change notification obligations, or provides false information,
- Frequent Buyer makes statements, or otherwise behaves in ways, that infringes or compromises the reputation and business reputation of Inlernet,
- Frequent Buyer advertises or promotes the Inlernet System in forms not authorized by Inlernet, or uses Inlernet trademarks on her/his own materials without permission, or makes statements or assumes liabilities on behalf and in the representation of Inlernet without permission (without separate written authorization),
- Frequent Buyer modifies without permission, or counterfeits, informational matter, instructional matter, and presentations issued by Inlernet,
- Frequent Buyer accepts discounts other than the rebates published on www.inlernet.com and on its partner media from, and in cooperation with, Product Partners, circumventing the Inlernet System,
- Frequent Buyer receives or accepts the value of rebates offered by Product Partners and published on www.inlernet.com and on its partner media from Product Partners in cash or other direct form, circumventing the Inlernet System,
- Frequent Buyer receives, in cooperation with Product Partners, the full or partial value of Online Vouchers redeemable at Product Partners from Product Partners in cash, via bank transfer, or otherwise, circumventing the Inlernet System,
- Frequent Buyer fails, in spite of Inlernet’s request, to refund commissions paid to her/him on no valid ground,
- Frequent Buyer intends to enter other Frequent Buyers and Product Partners into the Inlernet System using provably incorrect information or in a misleading way, or misinforms them in regard of the use of the System and the leverages achievable through the System,
- Frequent Buyer misrepresents the Inlernet System to other or during her/his Referee activities as capital investment or other financial activity subject to licensing, or through misinformation represents it as a System performing other activities subject to licensing, or incompatible with, or expressly infringing, effective legal regulations,
- As a Referee, Frequent Buyer registers a third person with the Inlernet System as a new Frequent Buyer without the knowledge or consent of the person concerned,
- Performs any activity competitive to the Inlernet System, through which s/he causes material or moral damages to, or harms the market position of, Inlernet, in particular by establishing or operating a system described in Section 4.21,
- Frequent Buyer takes legal action of any kind (litigious or non-litigious) against Inlernet,
- Deliberately incurs damages to, or commits criminal action against, Inlernet or its partners,
- Behaves in ways that make further cooperation within the System impossible or extremely difficult.
9.6. In case of Frequent Buyer’s death, the present contract shall be transferred to the lawful heir of Frequent Buyer so that in the contract, Frequent Buyer shall automatically be replaced by her/his heir. Upon becoming aware of the death, Inlernet discounts, Entitlements, commissions, and leverages (hereinafter, jointly: Inlernet Entitlements) shall be transferred to a so-called Temporary Database until the grant of probate comes into force, or in case of probate litigation, until the final decision is delivered by the heir to Inlernet. The opening of the Temporary Database shall at the same time mean the prohibition of access to the Web Office, which however shall not concern the opportunity of obtaining Inlernet Entitlements. Therefore, Inlernet Entitlements related to the deceased Frequent Buyer may grow in the Temporary Database even before the new (heir) Frequent Buyer is named. Warrants related to the inheritance of Inlernet Entitlement made in auxiliary probate procedures may not be enforced in the Inlernet System.
In the probate procedure (in case of both legal inheritance and inheritance by will) only one person may be designated the heir of Inlernet Entitlements. Inlernet Entitlements may not be shared even in case of joint inheritance. If Frequent Buyer has multiple heirs, the heirs must designate a single person to inherit the entitlements. If the deceased Frequent Buyer designated no heirs, and the identity of the heir does not become known, the domicile of the heir is unknown, or the probate procedure closes without decision, then the Inlernet Entitlements shall be received by the Referee of the legator Frequent Buyer, except when the death of the legator Frequent Buyer was the result of the voluntary or negligent act of Referee (certified by final sentence to this effect).
If the heir of the legator Frequent Buyer is a registered Frequent Buyer of the Inlernet System, then the Frequent Buyer branch (together with Inlernet Entitlements related thereto) forming part of the estate shall not be added to the existing Frequent Buyer branch and its related Inlernet Entitlements of the heir. In this case the heir Frequent Buyer shall replace the legator Frequent Buyer, with the denomination “ZW heir of XY,” with names replaced. In this and only this case, the heir shall use services of the Inlernet System under two or more Frequent Buyer IDs with different Inlernet Entitlements. The Frequent Buyer ID of the legator Frequent Buyer shall not change after the inheritance, and thus forms part of the estate.
9.7. All provisions of the present Contract for Frequent Buyers shall remain effective until the day of extinction of the contractual relationship. In case of termination, the day of extinction is identical to the last day of the notice period. After the day of extinction, Frequent Buyer shall not be entitled to use the Inlernet System and thus, the Web Office, which shall be automatically closed by Inlernet to Frequent Buyer. If Frequent Buyer has paid only retainer for an Inlernet Voucher, then the retainer paid for the voucher shall not be lost and may be amended to the total voucher value within one year of the date of extinction of the contract, in accordance with those set forth in Section 5.12. If Frequent Buyer does not amend the retainer paid for the voucher within the period specified above, then the retainer sum shall be lost after one year.
10. Liabilities and Rules for the Enforcement of Claims
10.1. Inlernet and the companies in the Inlernet Corporate Group shall only be accountable to Frequent Buyer in case of any claims arising from or in relation to present contractual relationship to be enforced by Frequent Buyer by any virtue whatsoever, if damages were caused intentionally or by gross negligence, or if damages were caused by an Inlernet employee by committing crime; among such cases, only when due to damage attributable to Inlernet, the life, physical integrity, or health of Frequent Buyer or its employee comes to harm.

10.3. Inlernet shall not be held liable for any misinformation or misleading information provided to Frequent Buyer by the Referee Frequent Buyer, or from any other Frequent Buyer or third party in regard of entering the Inlernet System, the structure and use thereof, about Inlernet Entitlements and the rates thereof.

natural disaster, fire, flooding, official or court proceedings, official or court orders, emergency, riot, civil war, war, strike or similar work stoppage, as well as the permanent outage of the Inlernet Website and of other technical facilities providing access to the Inlernet Database for reasons beyond the control of Inlernet, which directly or indirectly results in the impossibility, lasting outage, or significant encumbrance of the operation of the Inlernet System or the delivery of contractual obligations of Inlernet. Inlernet shall not be held liable for non-delivery, lack of conformity, or default of its contractual obligations where this is caused by a force majeure event as set forth above.

During the period of the force majeure event, effectiveness of the contract shall be suspended to the extent to which contractual delivery is not possible due to the force majeure event.
11. General Rules of Data Management
11.1. Inlernet processes and manages data provided by the Frequent Shopper as per this agreement, static and other data gained in relation with this agreement, and data gained from purchases made with the Inlernet Prepaid MasterCard.

11.3. Inlernet has the right to transfer Frequent Buyer’s known and processed data to companies in the Inlernet Corporate Group and to Referees (Instructors) related to Frequent Buyer, exclusively for facilitating the performance of Inlernet System-related services.

If for these reasons, Frequent Buyer prohibits the transferring of her/his data, then Inlernet shall not be entitled to transfer such data. In this case Frequent Buyer acknowledges that limitation of the management of her/his data may hamper or limit the availability of Entitlements achievable in the Inlernet System.

12.1. If the present contract is concluded with a company (Bt, Kft, Rt, etc.), then the company representative must make sure that all provisions hereof are observed by all representatives, employees, officers, and professional consultants alike. In case of any breach of contract committed by the above mentioned persons liability shall rest with the company and its representative.
12.2. Present contractual terms and conditions shall be governed by the material law of Hungary, in particular the provisions of the Civil Code of Hungary, regardless of Frequent Buyer’s nationality and domicile. The parties must attempt to resolve any dispute arising out of, or relating to, the present contract peacefully through negotiations. If the matter is not resolved by negotiation, then parties submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Court of First Instance having jurisdiction where the principal place of business of Inlernet Worldwide AG is located.
12.3. Parties hereto must observe the provisions hereof in full. Frequent Buyer shall not be entitled to assign or otherwise transfer her/his rights and obligations hereunder to third parties without the prior written consent of Inlernet.
