6.1.    Some jurisdictions and/or laws and regulations within such jurisdictions may have certain requirements for signatures of documents to be legally valid. Nexus can therefore not guarantee that a signature of a Document through use of the Services will be legally valid.

6.2.    Any Document signed by use of the Services will be entered into between the signing parties, which are solely responsible for the content of each Document. Except for the case where Nexus explicitly acts as a signatory of a document, Nexus will under no circumstances be a party to any Document signed through the Services, Nexus will have no knowledge of or responsibility for the content of a Document and will not, even if so requested, interpret, give legal advice regarding or act to enforce the content of any Document.

7. Access to Documents

7.1.   Nexus temporarily stores and processes uploaded PDF documents for the purpose of adding digital signatures and related information. Except for this case, Nexus will not access the content of the Documents unless explicit consent has been given by the Administrator who uploaded the Document. Such access may be necessary for Nexus to provide the Administrator with the relevant support. Any content of a Document to which Nexus has been granted access will be treated confidentially and only shared with personnel within Nexus on a strict need-to-know basis.

7.2.   Nexus may collect information about processed signature information such as digital fingerprints for the purpose of supplying a service to customers for validation of signatures.

8. Publishing

For the purposes of publicly sharing that the Customer is using the Services for electronic signatures, Nexus is entitled to publish the Customer’s trademark and/or the Customer’s name on Nexus’ web pages or publicly sharing this in any other manner, including through publications on a third party web page or through another media.

9. Restricted accessibility

9.1.    Nexus is entitled to immediately at any time restrict or limit the Customer’s (and Users’) access to the Services for (a) security reasons, (b) if required for updates, amendments or corrections of the Service, (c) unpredicted problems with the operation of the Service, (d) breach of maximum usage volumes of the Service, and (e) by order of competent authority.

9.2.    In the event of restricted accessibility pursuant to Section 9.1 above, Nexus shall notify the Customer thereof and inform of the reasons. Such notification shall include an estimate of when Nexus assumes the Services to be available again. Nexus will always use commercially reasonable efforts to allow the Customer to access the Services as soon as possible again.

10. Error notifications

10.1. Should the Customer identify any error in the Services (i.e. that the Service does not perform as stated in the Service Description), the Customer shall notify Nexus promptly in writing, describing how the error affects the Service (error notification). The Customer shall in any event notify Nexus within one month from the first occurrence of the error. Should the Customer fail to notify Nexus accordingly, its right to notify the error is forfeit.

10.2. Nexus will use its commercially reasonable efforts to rectify any error notified in accordance with Section 10.1 above. In the event of a material error, preventing the Customer from using the Service for its purpose as stated in the Service Description, which Nexus has failed to rectify within 30 days from the Customer’s notification, the Customer shall be entitled to terminate the Agreement forthwith in writing. In addition, in the event the error prevents the Customer from using the Service and persists for more than five days from the Customer’s error notification, the Customer shall not be liable to pay the monthly fee corresponding to the time during which the Service has been unavailable. This Section 10.2 sets forth Nexus’ sole liability and Customer’s sole remedy in the event of an error.

11. Limitation of liability

11.1. Each party’s liability under the Agreement shall per Document be limited to direct damages or losses, occurring as a direct consequence of the party’s breach of the Agreement, and to a maximum of SEK 10 000. Under no circumstances shall a party’s aggregate liability under the Agreement exceed SEK 100 000. These limitations are not applicable to liability arising from intellectual property right infringements, breaches of confidentiality obligations, the content of the Documents, or to any indemnification rights set out in these terms and conditions.

11.2. Nexus shall not be liable for damages incurred due to Swedish or foreign enactments, governmental actions, wars, strikes, blockades, boycotts, lock-outs or other similar circumstances affecting the Services. This shall apply even if Nexus itself is involved in the strike, blockade, boycott or lock-out. Should either party be prevented from fulfilling its obligations under the Agreement due to the circumstances set out above, the party shall be released from its obligations until the prevention has ceased.

12. Intellectual property rights

12.1. This Agreement does not constitute any transfer or assignment of any intellectual property rights and does not grant the Customer any right to use the Services in any other manner than as set out in this Agreement.

12.2. Nexus is not responsible for and will not obtain any intellectual property right, title or interest in any content uploaded or signed in the Services. For the avoidance of doubt, should the Customer upload or use any material owned by Nexus, such material will remain vested in Nexus.

Each party undertakes to not disclose any confidential information which it has received from the other party hereunder. Confidential information shall include any technical, commercial and any other information, whether documented or not, especially relating to the Services or any other services provided by Nexus.

Such written notice must include a specification of the nature of the breach. Notwithstanding the aforesaid, in case of the Customer’s breach of any one provision in Sections 4.2 - 4.8, Nexus shall be entitled to immediately terminate the Agreement.

16.3. Nexus is furthermore entitled to immediately terminate the Agreement if the Customer is declared bankrupt or such an application is made, goes into liquidation, initiates composition proceedings, is subject to company restructuring or on reasonable grounds can be expected not to fulfil its obligations under this Agreement or any other contract having an immediate connection with this Agreement.

17. Amendments to the Services or the Agreement

17.1. Nexus shall be entitled to amend the Agreement on 14 days’ prior written notice (e.g. by email). This means, for example, that Nexus may change the scope and content of the Services or adjust applicable fees.
