This Derivative Data is no longer associated with Client, Client Vehicles or Vehicle Operators and as such is not Client Data. FC may transfer or assign any of its rights in the Derivative Data to any third party.
- Suspension of Access. In addition to any termination rights of FC pursuant to this Agreement, extraordinary circumstances may require FC to suspend or terminate (where appropriate), as determined in FC’s reasonable discretion, Client’s access to and/or use of, or otherwise modify, the Service and/or any component thereof in order to: (a) prevent material damages to, or material degradation of the integrity of, FC’s network; or (b) comply with any law, regulation, court order, or other governmental order. FC will notify Client of such suspension or termination action as far in advance of such suspension or termination as reasonably possible, and if such advance notice is not possible, then as soon as possible after such suspension or termination.

- PROTECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
- Client is Data Controller. In relation to all Personal Information provided by or through Client to FC under this Agreement, Client will at all times remain the Data Controller and will be responsible for compliance with all applicable Data Protection Laws. Client warrants that it collects Personal Information lawfully, including with express, unambiguous and informed consent, or pursuant to another legal basis for the collection of Personal Information, as allowed under the Data Protection Legislation. To the extent that FC processes Personal Information in the course of providing the Service and related services under this Agreement, it will do so only as a Data Processor acting on behalf of the Client (as Data Controller) and in accordance with the requirements of this Agreement.
- FC’s Processing of Personal Information.
(a) Security and Processing. FC shall secure Personal Information with all necessary safeguards appropriate to the level of sensitivity of the Personal Information.

- Data Breach. Upon becoming aware of any unlawful access to any Personal Information, any unauthorized access to such facilities or equipment resulting in loss, disclosure or alteration of any Personal Information, or any actual loss of or suspected threats to the security of Personal Information (including any physical trespass on a secure facility, computing systems intrusion/hacking, loss/theft of a computing device, storage media or printed materials, or other unauthorized access) (each a “Security Incident”), FC will promptly notify Client of the Security Incident (and in all circumstances at least as soon as it reports to similarly situated customers of Client, but in any event as soon as reasonably possible in the circumstances), and will investigate or perform required assistance in the investigation of the Security Incident and provide Client with detailed information about the Security Incident. FC will take all commercially reasonable steps to mitigate the effects of the Security Incident, or assist Client in doing so; and will provide prior notice to Client of, and will not undertake any, proposed communications to third parties related to a Security Incident involving Personal Information without Client’s prior written approval, not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed. FC will work with and coordinate with Client on any such notices in any event. FC will comply with this Section 4 at FC’s cost unless the Security Incident arose from Client’s negligent or willful acts or FC’s compliance with Client’s express written instructions.
- Data Processing Agreement. As required, FC and Client will enter into a separate data processing agreement, governing the processing and protection of Personal Information by FC during the provision of the Service to the Client.
- CLIENT CONFIDENTIALITY OBLIGATIONS
The Service, in particular the Software, including without limitation, the specific design, structure and logic of individual programs, their interactions both internal and external, and the programming techniques employed therein are considered confidential and trade secrets of Fleet Complete Group and/or its licensors (the „Confidential Information“), the unauthorized disclosure of which would cause irreparable harm to Fleet Complete Group. Client shall use the same degree of care and means that it uses to protect its own information of a similar nature, shall use reasonable efforts to prevent the disclosure of Confidential Information to any third parties and take reasonable steps under the circumstances in accordance with Article 2 section 1 (c) Directive (EU) 2016/943 of June 8th, 2016 on the protection of trade secrets as implemented in the relevant EU Member State to protect the secrecy of Confidential Information of Fleet Complete Group. Client shall not use, reproduce or distribute the Confidential Information other than for the purposes authorized by this Agreement. This confidentiality obligation shall continue to apply to the Confidential Information following the termination hereof, provided that the confidentiality provisions contained herein shall not apply to Confidential Information which (i) was known by Client prior to disclosure, as evidenced by its business records; (ii) was lawfully in the public domain prior to its disclosure, or becomes publicly available other than through a breach of the confidentiality provisions contained herein; (iii) was disclosed to Client by a third party, provided such third party or any other party from whom such third party receives such information is not in breach of any confidentiality obligation in respect of such information; or (iv) is disclosed when such disclosure is compelled pursuant to legal, judicial, or administrative proceeding, or otherwise required by law, provided that Client shall give all reasonable prior notice to FC to allow it to seek protective or other court orders.
- LIMITED WARRANTY
- Service Warranty. FC warrants that the Service will perform substantially in accordance with the Documentation or other specifications published by FC during the Subscription Term. FC does not warrant, however, that Client’s use of the Service will be uninterrupted, that the operation of the Service will be error-free, that the Service will meet Client’s requirements or that all errors will be corrected.
- Warranty Exclusions. This warranty shall not apply if the Service is used on or in conjunction with hardware or programs other than the unmodified version of the hardware and programs with which the Service is designed to be used as described in the Documentation.
- Hardware Warranty. FC warrants the Subscribers in accordance with FC’s Hardware Warranty, a copy of which is available at https://fleetcomplete.de/legal/.
- No Warranty for Evaluations. IF CLIENT IS EVALUATING THE SERVICE THEN THE SERVICE AND DOCUMENTATION IS PROVIDED TO CLIENT BY FC ON AN “AS IS” BASIS, WITHOUT ANY WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF ANY KIND.
- Warranty Disclaimer. EXCEPT FOR THE EXPRESS WARRANTIES PROVIDED IN THIS SECTION 10, THE SERVICE IS PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” BASIS, WITHOUT ANY OTHER REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES, OR CONDITIONS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR NON-INFRINGEMENT, OR THOSE ARISING BY LAW, USAGE OF TRADE OR COURSE OF DEALING. FC DOES NOT WARRANT, GUARANTEE OR MAKE ANY REPRESENTATIONS REGARDING THE USE, OR THE RESULTS OF USE, OF THE SERVICE IN TERMS OF CORRECTNESS, ACCURACY, RELIABILITY, CURRENCY, OR OTHERWISE. FC DOES NOT OTHERWISE WARRANT THAT THE SERVICE WILL MEET CLIENT’S REQUIREMENTS THAT THE OPERATION OF THE SERVICE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR FREE, OR THAT ALL ERRORS WILL BE CORRECTED.
- Internet Connectivity Disclaimer. FC makes the Service available for access via the Internet. Client shall provide, at Client’s own expense, all necessary hardware, applications and Internet connectivity necessary to access the Service over the Internet. Client acknowledges that the Internet is known to be unpredictable in performance and may, from time to time, impede access to the Service or performance hereunder. Except as expressly set forth herein, Client agrees that FC is not responsible for any interference with Client’s use of or access to the Service to the extent caused by, arising from or attributable to the Internet.
- FC Vision™ Consent, Disclaimer and Limitation of Liability. The Service includes a Third Party Service known as FC Vision™ (“FC Vision”). If FC Vision is activated by Client then Client hereby consents to the collection, storage and use of the video data collected through the use of FC Vision as described in the Documentation (the “FC Vision Data”) by LightMetrics, Inc. (“LightMetrics”), FC’s licensor of the FC Vision software. With respect to FC Vision Data, FC is the Data Processor and LightMetrics is the sub-processor and FC shall cause LightMetrics to collect, store and use Client’s FC Vision Data in accordance with Client’s instructions. In addition, the following disclaimers and limitations on FC and its licensor’s liability apply. FC Vision is only meant to aid and augment the Vehicle Operator’s own skill and attention when driving a Vehicle. FC Vision’s primary function is to alert the Vehicle Operator to certain events described in the Documentation and accordingly, does not replace the Vehicle Operator’s requirement to be attentive to the surrounding traffic conditions, and drive in a legal and responsible manner without any distraction of any sort. It is expected that the Vehicle Operators do not rely on the FC Vision warnings as a substitute for their own judgement and attention. Certain features may not work in situations such as: (a) where visibility is challenging due to prevailing weather conditions; (b) lanes not being clearly marked or visible; (c) when the Vehicle is following a vehicle other than cars, buses or trucks; (d) when the camera’s field of view is occluded; (e) degradation of WiFi connection between camera and mobile device; and/or (f) changes in camera orientation post-installation. SAVE AS OTHERWISE EXPRESSLY PROVIDED HEREIN, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL FC OR ITS LICENSORS (INCLUDING LIGHTMETRICS) BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGES OR LIABILITIES WHATSOEVER THAT ARISE ON ACCOUNT OF A VEHICLE OPERATOR’S USE OF FC VISION.
- TELECOMMUNICATIONS CARRIERS AND GPS
- The Client acknowledges that communication services used in the provision of the Service are provided by third parties and the Client specifically acknowledges and agrees to the following:
(a) Client acknowledges that the Service may be temporarily refused, interrupted, curtailed or limited because of atmospheric, terrain, or other natural or artificial conditions and may be temporarily interrupted or curtailed due to usage concentrations, modifications, upgrades, relocation and repairs of the transmission networks. Client agrees that FC shall not be responsible for such interruptions of Service or the inability to use the Service.
(b) FC may temporarily suspend or permanently terminate the provision of some or all of the Service upon little or no notice in the event that Client violates a telecommunications carrier’s acceptable use policy or other network rules and policies.
(c) There must be a relatively clear “line of sight” between the GPS antenna and 4 or more satellites. Objects, such as buildings, overpasses, and other obstructions (such as parking in garages or underground structures) that shield the antenna from a satellite can potentially weaken a satellite’s signal such that it becomes too difficult to ensure reliable and/or accurate positioning. These difficulties are particularly prevalent in densely urban areas.
- The Client acknowledges that communication services used in the provision of the Service are provided by third parties and the Client specifically acknowledges and agrees to the following:
- IP INFRINGEMENT INDEMNIFICATION
- FC Indemnity. FC will defend and indemnify Client (including its employees, contractors, officers and directors) against fines, penalties, losses, costs, damages, injuries, claims, liabilities, settlements and expenses (including reasonable legal fees and expenses) arising from third party claims that the exercise of the rights granted hereunder infringes any third party patent, copyright, or trade secret („Infringement Claim Liabilities“).
- Conditions to Indemnity. As a condition of such obligation to defend and indemnify the Client pursuant to Section 12.1 hereof, Client shall give FC prompt written notice of any such claim, and cooperate and provide, at FC’s expense, reasonable information and assistance in connection with the defense and settlement of such claims. FC shall have sole control of the settlement or defense of all infringement claims.
- Exceptions.FC shall not be responsible for indemnifying Client to the extent that the infringement claim liability results from (i) compliance with Client’s designs, specifications, or written instructions as requested and provided by Client to FC; (ii) modification by Client of the Software if such infringement would have been avoided but for such modification; (iii) the combination of Software or Service with equipment or software not authorized or provided by FC or otherwise approved by FC in the Documentation, if such infringement would have been avoided but for such combination; or (iv) the failure by Client to use an updated or current version of the Service provided by FC following notice by FC that the previous version of the Service infringes any third party intellectual property right.
- Other Remedies. Without limiting the provisions of Section 12.1 above, and in addition thereto, when notified of an action or motion that seeks to restrict the exercise of any of the rights granted herein, FC may, (and in the case of a judgment, order or injunction that restricts the exercise of any of the rights granted herein, shall), in good faith, at its option and expense, (a) obtain the right for Client to exercise their rights in accordance with this Agreement, (b) substitute other non-infringing software with equivalent functional capabilities, (c) modify the Service while retaining equivalent functional capabilities, so that it no longer infringes, or (d) if none of the foregoing are commercially feasible, as determined by FC in its sole discretion, terminate the license(s) for such Service and refund to Client that portion of any prepaid subscription Fees that is applicable to the period following the termination of the license pursuant to this Section 12.4.
