The buyer shall have the right to terminate the agreement in the event of default by amberspice after providing an adequate grace period by written notice.

Granting of licence
With the gratuitous download of the digital media data, the Client shall receive a non-exclusive licence to install the digital media data in accordance with the following indications and conditions.

The digital media data may be incorporated into derived works such as animations, visualisations, film, video, TV, multimedia, advertising, live performances, internet, presentations, product or print jobs (DVD, entertainment and training videos, music videos, computer games etc.) without additional cost and without any limitations except for those expressly set out below.
The limitations on use are as follows:
No digital media data may be published, marketed, distributed, transferred, sold or relicensed, in full or in the form of extracts (that stand on their own).
No digital media data may be used as an integral part of computer graphics, animations, software applications or other derived works if the digital media data is published, marketed, distributed, transferred, sold or relicensed in full or in form of extracts so as to enable each part of the original digital media data to be exported, extracted or decompiled.
No digital media data may be published, marketed, distributed, transferred, sold or relicensed in full or in the form of extracts (that stand on their own) as a Clip Art file or a comparable format. This includes animations, images and the like, which are relicensed or otherwise distributed by a special agency/a special trader of that type of visual and audio media and whose main value is justified by the fact that it is made available in a form and manner which is similar to a Clip Art file.

Single licence
The digital media data may at any given time only be used on a computer in a modified or unmodified form. The Client may not rent, lease, sell or relicense the digital media data to other persons, companies or corporate bodies. Everything created using the digital media data must be intended for the own use of the client or the use of the employer/principal, client or customer, who is the end user of the client’s work.

Breach of contract
The Client/user herewith declares he agrees to hold amberspice harmless from redress and damage compensation claims and to compensate for those damages and liabilities which arise in any form out of the use of the digital media data, particularly – but not exclusively – out of the violation of these GTC and terms of use or of statutory provisions of any kind.

amberspice guarantees that the digital media data is free from defects and, in the case of prior written or electronic (email is sufficient) agreement to deliver it on a data carrier, that these are free from defects and that in any event, the intended functionality shall be warranted. The Client is solely and exclusively entitled, in the case of breach of this guarantee, to request compensation for the defective digital media data. amberspice may in such case also opt for the reimbursement of the purchase price but is not obliged to do so. amberspice shall not make any guarantees or assurances in respect of the digital media data extending beyond the above, and any anticipated inherent guarantees concerning the marketability, suitability for a specific purpose, rights of possession/use or protection against legal breach are herewith denied.

Supplements and amendments
amberspice reserves the right to supplement or amend this agreement at any time.

Severability clause
If any part of this agreement should be invalid or unenforceable or lose its legal validity or enforceability due to a subsequent circumstance or reveal a gap, this shall not affect the validity of the other parts of the agreement which shall continue to be valid and enforceable pursuant to their wording. Instead of the inoperative contract provision or in order to fill the gap, an adequate rule should apply which approximates as closely as possible the intent of the contract parties insofar as they considered the issue.

Applicable law and jurisdiction
This agreement is governed by Swiss law with the exception of the Vienna Sale of Goods Act. The courts of Zurich shall have jurisdiction.
