c) Avoidance of errors
The customer shall routinely carry out preventative maintenance and cleaning.

VALEO IT Services International GmbH is entitled to adjust the fees and service content by notifying the customer in writing or electronically (i.e. by email) with a notice period of 60 days, provided that this does not unreasonably disadvantage the customer. If shorter notice periods are agreed on the basis of agreements between suppliers and VALEO IT Services International GmbH, VALEO IT Services International GmbH shall be entitled to shorten the agreed notice period of 60 days to a reasonable extent. The prerequisites and reasons for such a change in services or charges may be technical or legal requirements; in individual cases, economic requirements may also justify an adjustment.
The amendment shall be made in such a way and to such an extent that the interests of both parties are balanced as far as possible. If the customer does not wish to continue the contract with the modified charges, it is entitled to extraordinary written termination with a notice period of 14 days from the date of the change. Otherwise, the customer’s rights arising are excluded in this connection.

The customer acknowledges that the services are intended solely for the customer’s internal purposes and that the customer may not directly or indirectly transfer, lease or resell the services to any third party unless VALEO IT Services International GmbH authorises the customer to do so in writing
