1.4 Deviations from these GTC are only deemed to be agreed if they have been expressly confirmed in writing by cirplus. Any existing General Terms and Conditions of the Customers are expressly not recognized by cirplus. In particular, the mere omission of an objection by cirplus to the Customer’s General Terms and Conditions shall not cause them to be considered as agreed. This shall also apply if cirplus performs services unconditionally upon knowledge of opposing terms and conditions of the Customer or terms and conditions diverging from these GTC.

1.5 For important reasons, in particular in the event of changes to statutory provisions, the supreme court jurisdiction or the market conditions, cirplus may notify the Customer of an amendment to these GTC by identifying the vital amendments. The amended GTC shall be deemed to have been agreed to if the Customer has not objected to the amendment within one month upon receipt of the notification and cirplus has explicitly notified the Customer of this consequence while informing them about the amendments. Regardless of the foregoing regulations, amendments to the service content agreed on with the Customer require the express consent of the Customer
