Nexway AG, having its headoffice at Vincenz-Priessnitz-Str. 3, 76131 Karlsruhe, Germany,

The present Terms and Conditions define the applicable Conditions of Sales of the downloadable products on this Website by Nexway. They apply exclusively to Buyers (*1) (hereinafter referred to as the « Customer » or « you »).
No Sale will be finalized without the Customer’s express consent of these Terms and Conditions. Their acceptance is materialized by the mandatory “ticking” of the validation box stating “By checking this box, I acknowledge having read the Terms and Conditions of Sales and the personal data charter of the online store and I expressly accept them”.
These Terms and Conditions can be registered and printed at any time by the Customer. For any purpose, we strongly recommend that you print and save them.
The terms mentioned below are within the scope of these Terms and Conditions and have the following meanings:
1.1 The term “Website” means any website operated by NEXWAY for the sale of products and services and subject to these Terms and Conditions. Websites operated by Suppliers are expressly excluded from this definition.

1.5 The term “Software” refers to all computer programs marketed in any form or medium from this Website.
1.6 The term “Subscription” refers to Products and Services covered by recurring payment obligations pursuant to which payments are due at the agreed interval or intervals.
1.7 The term “Supplier” means any natural or legal entity that provides, produces, manufactures or delivers products and services to NEXWAY for resale to Customers.
These Terms and Conditions apply to all offers, acceptances, deployments and the provision of services and supplies, by NEXWAY or to the Customer, in connection with the sale of Products and Services from this Website, as previously defined.
Any conflicting terms or divergent conditions applied by a Customer or a third party needs prior written consent of NEXWAY to be included to these Terms and Conditions.
These Terms & Conditions apply even if NEXWAY executes its contractual obligations without reservation and in full knowledge that the conditions of the Customer differ from these Terms & Conditions.
If the sale of Products and Services includes the provision of services or other activities performed by third parties, the special conditions relating to licenses and other special conditions of the third party concerned apply in addition to these Terms and Conditions.
An order placed by the Customer is considered an offer to purchase Products and/or Services addressed to NEXWAY and in accordance with these Terms and Conditions.
An order requires acceptance of NEXWAY. The Customer’s order is accepted at the time of delivery of the Products and Services ordered. The delivery of the product can occur by email or on the Website (either on the confirmation page or in the customer’s client account).
NEXWAY may, in its sole discretion, use third parties for the performance of its services.
Only Customers already registered on the Website may place an order.
The registration on the Website is validated after filling the required information.
The Customer certifies that all the information he has given when placing the order (including, but not limited to, personal data and payment data) is current and accurate in all material respects.
The registration carried out for a purchase on this Website is reserved for adults. Any registration made by a minor person under the age of sixteen (16) years old requires the prior authorization of his/her legal representative.
The costs resulting from any inaccurate information submitted by the Customer, or data modified by the Customer after the order has been transmitted, will be borne by the Customer.
If the Customer has a Customer account with NEXWAY, he must manage and update his account information immediately to ensure the accuracy and completeness of such information.
NEXWAY reserves the right to immediately close the Customer’s account in the event that information mentioned at the time of its opening proves to be false.
Once registered, the Customer has a login and a password allowing him to connect to his account.
Only the account holder is allowed to log in using the login and password corresponding to that account. The Customer agrees to keep his password strictly confidential.
As such, any connection via the Customer’s account is deemed to have been made by the Customer himself or with his authorization, unless the Customer is able to prove otherwise.
The Customer can ask at any time the closure of his account via this form of contact.
The Products available are exclusively distributed in dematerialized form, unless otherwise indicated on this Website.
The offers of Products and prices are valid as long as they are visible on this Website, and within the limits of available stocks.
Therefore, orders are deemed accepted only after checking the inventory status. In the event of unavailability of Product after placing your order, we will notify you by email upon receipt of information provided by the publisher of the Product.
In case of unavailability of Product and if your payment has been accepted, NEXWAY will refund the sums paid within 15 days of such payment being accepted.
An email confirming the order is sent to the address entered by the Customer when registering, upon approval of payment.
The confirmation email contains the Product purchased, its price and, for Products sold in box, the delivery time.
In the case of an order for a downloadable product (such as a software activation key), access to the Product is done by clicking on the download link present either directly on the accepted payment return page or later on the confirmation email. The Customer automatically benefits from a period of 21 days from the date of receipt of the confirmation email to download the Product. At the end of these 21 days, the download is no longer available automatically and requires its release by customer service available via this contact form.

NEXWAY reserves the right to cancel or refuse any order from a Customer following a payment incident involving a previous order or where the information transmitted is manifestly incorrect.
Unless proven otherwise by the Customer, the data recorded by NEXWAY constitute proof of all transactions between him and NEXWAY.
A DVD backup copy of some downloaded Products may be ordered by the Customer, when he has a postal address in Metropolitan France.
The sending of the backup copy is carried out by post way and the expenses engaged for this option depend on the selected article.
By purchasing a Subscription, at the end of the initial period, you agree that your Subscription is automatically renewed for an identical period (1 month or 1 year as the case may be) and at the same price (plus applicable taxes) as your initial purchase.
Renewals will occur on the anniversary date of purchase on a monthly or annual basis (as per your initial purchase plan). This principle applies by default, with the exception of special promotions at the time of the initial purchase, for which the renewal price or the renewal period may change. These special conditions will be clearly stated during your initial purchase.
In case of annual subscription you will receive at least one email informing you of the imminent automatic renewal of your Subscription. You must ensure that NEXWAY has a valid email address to be able to notify you by sending emails, and that the nexway.com domain is not blocked by your anti-spam filtering software.
At the end of the initial period and of each successive renewal period, except in the event of termination of your Subscription, you expressly authorize NEXWAY to charge you each renewal by the reuse of the same payment information that you entered at the time of the initial purchase.
In the event of any price changes, NEXWAY will promptly notify the Customer, so that the Customer can cancel his Subscription before the first billing after the price change.
At any time, you can cancel your Subscription from your Customer account in the “My Account” section.
The cancellation only takes effect from the expiry date of the current subscription period.
NEXWAY may cancel the Subscription under the same conditions that apply to the Customer.
The use of Products and Services sold by NEXWAY may be dependent on Supplier-hosted online platforms, Supplier-processed data, and the Supplier’s ability to perform its services. If the Supplier interrupts the offer of the online platform in whole or in part, ceases the data processing or stops performing the Services in question (“Interruption”), NEXWAY may cancel the Subscription as of the date of the Interruption. NEXWAY will reimburse the Customer pro rata for the remainder of the subscription period following the Interruption.

The Product may not be copied, adapted, translated, made available, distributed, modified, disassembled, decompiled or used in combination with any other software, except with the express authorization of the publisher of such Product, unless otherwise required by law.
The Customer is warned that non-observance of the license agreement conditions may be sanctioned by the publisher of the Product and potentially exposes him to legal proceedings.
The sale prices indicated on this Website are in the displayed currency and all taxes are included, unless stated otherwise. As part of a box order, any delivery charges are indicated to the Customer according to his choice of Products and are billed at the end of the order in addition to the price of the selected Products.

The selected payment method is debited upon receipt of the order and subject to the prior authorization of the competent payment service provider. In the absence of authorization, the order will not be processed.

The Customer can exercise his right of withdrawal (*2) as follows:
- For Products sold on physical media (Backup DVD, CD Boxes), the Customer has a period of thirty (30) calendar days after receiving the Product to exercise his right of withdrawal. The Customer informs NEXWAY by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by post (Nexway Customer Support, 1 Bd Amiral Courbet 30000 Nîmes FRANCE or Nexway Customer Support 236, 8th street – San Francisco, CA 94103) of his decision of withdrawal by completing this withdrawal form (or any other document with equivalent indications) before the expiry of the aforementioned period.

NEXWAY will refund the Customer [all amounts paid/the purchase price of the Product], [including delivery charges], within fifteen (15) calendar days of NEXWAY’s receipt of the relevant Product(s). However, NEXWAY is not obliged to refund additional costs if the Customer has chosen a more expensive mode of delivery than the standard delivery method used at the time of the initial delivery of the relevant by NEXWAY to the Customer.
- For download Products or software activation keys, for which the Customer has previously and expressly agreed to waive the exercise of his right of withdrawal (*3):
The waiver of your right of withdrawal is materialized by the mandatory “ticking”, prior to sale’s closing, of the Tick Box stating “I have read and I accept the Terms and Conditions of Sales. When proceeding to download or by receiving a software activation key I want to immediately access purchased content, and I therefore waive the exercise of my right of withdrawal”.
If the Customer did not have to waive the exercise of his right of withdrawal to access the product or the service, he has a period of thirty (30) calendar days from the date of the order to exercise his right of withdrawal. The Customer shall inform NEXWAY by email (email@example.com) or by post (Nexway Customer Support, 1 Bd Amiral Courbet 30000 Nîmes FRANCE or Nexway Customer Support 236, 8th street – San Francisco, CA 94103) of his decision of withdrawal by completing this withdrawal form (or any other document with equivalent indications) before the expiry of the aforementioned period.

In any case, the exercise of the right of withdrawal is free and does not have to be justified.
