RushFiles A/S shall in no event be liable for:

For the avoidance of doubt, loss of data is always deemed to be an indirect loss.
The limitation of liability shall also apply to product liability to the extent statutory Danish law prohibits this. Any non-statutory product liability is thus expressly disclaimed.
A party shall not be liable for failure to perform its obligations, nor be liable for any claim for compensation or damage etc., nor be deemed to be in breach of its obligations, if such failure arises from an occurrence or circumstances beyond the reasonable control of that party (excluding an obligation to make payment).

If a party affected by such an occurrence causes a delay of three months or more, and if such delay may reasonably be anticipated to continue, then the parties shall, in consultation with each other, discuss whether continuation of RushFiles is viable, or whether the agreement regarding RushFiles should be terminated.
The user license to RushFiles can be transferred to third party but shall require (i) prior written consent from RushFiles A/S and (ii) that the party acquiring the user license accepts to be bound by the agreement with RushFiles A/S and these Terms.
RushFiles A/S will only refuse to give consent of transfer if a commercial argument for such denial exists
e.g. unethical or illegal activities with the acquiring third party or prior breach of RushFiles A/S terms and conditions.
RushFiles is available for the handling of files/data for the reseller and its users.
RushFiles A/S does not handle files/data and disclaims any and all liability for any content, validity or legality of data/files stored and transferred through RushFiles and whether this takes place in accordance with current legislation, including copyright legislation.
Only the reseller and reseller’s users shall be responsible for compliance with applicable rules on Processing of Personal Data, including the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). RushFiles A/S specifically
disclaims any liability for non-compliance with GDPR, except for fines issued by the relevant authorities against RushFiles A/S. RushFiles shall thus in no event be obligated to cover any cost, damages or fines issued against or taken on by the reseller in relation to processing of personal data.
If a third party raises objections against the reseller for the use of RushFiles as a result of third-party rights hereto, the reseller shall immediately notify RushFiles A/S hereof.
RushFiles A/S shall consequently ensure that the reseller and the users can legally use RushFiles or change the content of RushFiles so that it does not infringe third party rights, but RushFiles A/S may also choose to terminate the agreement and close access to RushFiles for the reseller and the users by declaring an “End of Life due to Third Party Rights” of RushFiles, by giving a reasonable short notice allowing reseller and users to move their data to a secure location outside RushFiles. The reseller and the users shall then be obliged to delete RushFiles including any installed RushFiles software.
In case RushFiles declares an End of Life due to Third Party Rights, RushFiles A/S shall be obligated to reimburse the reseller any pre-paid fees for the period after the notice of End of Life due to Third Party Rights has taken effect.
None of the parties can subsequently submit further claims against each other.
RushFiles can at any time be terminated or the number of users/storage reduced by both parties with effect from the end of a Subscription Period.
RushFiles A/S can furthermore terminate RushFiles without further notice in case of the reseller’s or reseller’s users’ misuse or abuse of RushFiles and reseller has not remedied such misuse or abuse within 10 days from receiving written notice hereto. Misuse and abuse cover, but is not limited to, reseller or a user in connection with RushFiles:
Termination can only take effect for the future.
When RushFiles terminates/the user license expires, it will no longer be possible to use RushFiles and the reseller and users shall be obliged to delete RushFiles from any applicable platforms. Likewise, RushFiles A/S shall be obligated to delete any of the reseller’s or users’ data on RushFiles platforms, to the extent RushFiles A/S is in possession of such. RushFiles A/S reserves the right (but is not obligated) to postpone permanent deletion of data for a shorter period of time making it possible for reseller and users to retrieve their data.
If RushFiles A/S is required by an authority to deactivate, limit or delete a reseller’s or a user’s access to RushFiles or data within RushFiles, RushFiles A/S shall be entitled to do this without notice and without any liability to the reseller or the users.
RushFiles A/S is entitled to use the reseller as reference in marketing material, unless otherwise agreed in writing.
The relationship between the parties, including disputes regarding its existence, interpretation or validity of any agreement between the parties including these Terms shall be governed and construed by Danish law irrespective of any conflict-of-laws rules which might refer the dispute to the laws of another jurisdiction.
Disputes between the parties that cannot be settled amicably shall be settled by the ordinary Danish courts at the current venue of RushFiles A/S.
