1.5. Where individual clauses of these Terms and Conditions are invalid in whole or in part this shall not affect the effectiveness of the remaining clauses. The parties undertake to replace the invalid clause with another valid clause which comes as close as possible to the economic purpose of the original provision. The same shall apply to any gaps in provisions with regard to the contract purpose.
1.6. The contract language is German.
2. Offer of contract and subject of contract
2.1. The services provided by ANYDESK are addressed exclusively to natural persons or legal entities or partnerships with legal personality which, when entering into legal transactions, act in exercise of their trade, business or profession (Section 14 BGB).
2.2. The subject of the contract is determined by these General Terms and Conditions, the Supplementary Terms, which shall take precedence within the body of provisions, and the provisions agreed in the Service Specification pertaining to the respective offer. Agreements which deviate from these provisions must be in writing.
2.3. Unless expressly stipulated otherwise in the offer, ANYDESK shall not be liable for any particular outcome to be achieved by its services.

3. Contract conclusion and preconditions for service performance
3.1. The product options presented by ANYDESK on the ANYDESK websites constitute a non-binding offer to the Customer to use the ANYDESK software for a specific period of time against payment of a fee. The Customer may purchase licenses for one or more terminals (work stations). The Customer shall enter its contact and invoice details (company, contact person, email and invoice address) and its choice of products in the course of the ordering process. A binding offer by the Customer to conclude a licensing contract is only made upon clicking the button “kostenpflichtig bestellen” (“place binding order with costs“). An email containing confirmation of receipt of the order shall be sent immediately; this does not constitute acceptance of the offer. ANYDESK shall be entitled to accept the Customer’s offer within two working days by sending an order confirmation by email. Where no order confirmation is sent within this time period the Customer’s offer shall be deemed rejected and the Customer no longer be bound by its offer.
3.2. Upon acceptance of the Customer’s offer by email the Customer shall receive license keys in accordance with the individual contractual agreement and a link to the security-protected login page of my.anydesk.com; following successful initial login and entering of the licensing key all installed “AnyDesk” clients on the appropriate terminals may be used in accordance with the extent of the license. Once opened, the AnyDesk clients connect to the communications servers of ANYDESK to use, via the Internet, software functions to the extent described in detail in the Service Specification and subject to the conditions and system requirements described in the same.
3.3. Where ANYDESK has provided the Customer with a written offer this shall be deemed accepted if the services offered therein have been approved without change by countersignature; transmission by way of telecommunications technology shall be deemed sufficient compliance with the requirement of written form in this regard (Section 127 (2) BGB). A separate written order confirmation shall only apply where specific reference is made therein (specification of the offer/order and total performance). Unless stipulated otherwise, offers shall apply for two weeks from receipt of the offer. Order confirmations by ANYDESK shall replace the Customer’s order unless a written objection is received within two weeks; ANYDESK shall expressly draw attention to the consequences of no objection being received in the order confirmation.
3.4. The Customer may only access the user software made available to it simultaneously with the contractually agreed number of terminals (work stations).
4. Customer information: Storage of order details, usage instructions
4.1. ANYDESK stores the Customer’s order, including details on the contract concluded (e.g. type of product, price, etc.). Customers may access their past orders and the extent of their license via the Internet on my.anydesk.com. These General Terms and Conditions will be transmitted to the Customer with the order confirmation and may also be accessed at anydesk.com/de/agb.
4.2. The Customer may at any time save the product description provided on our website for its own purposes, e.g. by taking a screenshot at the time of ordering or alternatively printing the entire page.
4.3. The Customer may access installation and usage instructions at any time at support.anydesk.com.
5. Customer information: Correcting errors
5.1. Customers may correct their details online prior to placing an order by using the delete key. ANYDESK shall inform the Customer of further means of correcting details in the course of the order process.
5.2. The order process may be aborted completely at any time by closing the browser window prior to placing an order.
6. Availability and technical requirements
6.1. Subject to a different service level being expressly agreed, ANYDESK shall provide to the Customer use at the server-side point of delivery subject to the availability and quality values specified in the Service Specification. ANYDESK shall only be responsible for availability to the extent that any unavailability of the part of the network run by ANYDESK and/or the web or communications server of ANYDESK is due to a fault on ANYDESK’s part. ANYDESK shall not be responsible for the data connection between the Customer’s respective terminal or IT system and the server-side point of delivery operated by ANYDESK being established and maintained.
6.2. Regular maintenance measures are required to secure the availability of all services provided; ANYDESK may suspend service performance for defined periods of time in order to carry out such maintenance. ANYDESK shall announce the time and expected duration of maintenance works at least three working days in advance. Wherever possible ANYDESK shall take the Customer’s interests into account when planning maintenance works. These regular maintenance times do not constitute impaired availability in terms of the above.
6.3. Smooth running of the ANYDESK software depends on the hardware and software used by the user on mobile terminals, routers, data communication equipment, etc. meeting the technical minimum requirements applicable to use of the currently offered software version, which are available to the user in the current system requirements specification.
6.4. The Customer shall be exclusively responsible for the configuration of its IT system. ANYDESK offers a support service on the basis of a separate agreement, for a fee.
6.5. The Customer shall be responsible for creating a data connection between the terminals intended for use by the Customer and the data delivery point defined by ANYDESK. ANYDESK shall be entitled to newly define the data delivery point at any time if this is necessary to enable smooth use of the services by the Customer. The Customer shall create a connection to the newly defined point of delivery in this event.
7. Customer’s obligations
7.1. The services of ANYDESK may not be misused; in particular, no information or contents may be transmitted and/or temporarily stored on ANYDESK servers which are illegal or immoral, or the duplication, provision, publication or use of which breach applicable law, rights of third parties (e.g. copyrights, patents, trademark rights or data protection rights) or agreements with third parties. The Customer shall prevent the unauthorized access of third parties to protected data stores by taking appropriate measures. The Customer shall scan its data and information for viruses and other damaging components prior to submission and shall use a state-of-the-art anti-virus program for this purpose. In the event of a culpable breach against the above provisions the Customer shall be liable for the resulting damage; the Customer shall indemnify ANYDESK against all claims of third parties which are due to such breach and shall compensate ANYDESK for any costs which arise due to potential infringements of rights.
7.2. ANYDESK shall be entitled to suspend software functions with immediate effect if a justified suspicion of misuse in terms of Section 7.1 and/or use which infringes third-party rights arises. A justified suspicion of illegality and/or infringement of rights shall in particular arise where courts, authorities and/or other third parties inform ANYDESK of the same. ANYDESK shall inform the Customer of the suspension and the reason for the same without delay. The suspension shall be discontinued as soon as the suspicion has been proven to be groundless.
7.3. Where the Customer collects, processes or uses personal data in the context of use of ANYDESK services and no statutory provision allowing such collection, processing and use applies, the prior consent of the affected parties must always be sought. ANYDESK and its vicarious agents shall in this context be indemnified against all claims of third parties which are based on illegal use of the products and the related servicers by the Customer. If the Customer realizes or ought to realize that a violation of this type is about to occur, it must notify ANYDESK without undue delay. Where in addition sensitive data in terms of Section 3 (9) of the German Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz) are to be processed by ANYDESK the Customer must inform ANYDESK of this fact in writing without undue delay.
7.4. Personal access data (user name and password) may not be disclosed to third parties and must be kept safe from access by third parties. For security reasons, they must be changed prior to first use and at regular intervals thereafter. If there is reason to suspect that unauthorized persons have gained access to access data the Customer shall change them without undue delay.
7.5. The Customer shall be solely responsible for data backup. ANYDESK shall not be under any obligation with regard to retention or safekeeping of data transmitted and processed by the Customer.
7.6. The Customer shall reimburse ANYDESK any costs incurred for checking its equipment following submission of a fault report if the checks show that the fault was not in ANYDESK’s equipment and this could have been recognized by the Customer if it had made a reasonable effort to find the fault.
8. Usage rights and software integration
8.1. The “AnyDesk” software provided to the Customer for use under the contract is protected by copyright. ANYDESK is exclusively entitled to the commercial exploitation of the software.
8.2. Upon contract conclusion, ANYDESK shall grant the Customer a non-exclusive usage right limited to the contract term pertaining to the applicable offer, to download the client software of ANYDESK to a contractually specified number of data-processing terminals (work stations) in order to create a connection with the ANYDESK communications server and use the software functions via the Internet to the extent described in detail in the Service Specification and subject to the conditions and system requirements described therein.
8.3. Notwithstanding the possibility of unrestricted downloads in accordance with the Supplementary Terms “AnyDesk Free“ the Customer shall not have the right to use the software beyond the use permitted under this agreement in any way or to allow third parties to use it or to make it accessible to third parties. Vicarious agents of the Customer who make use of the services without charge shall not be deemed third parties; this includes, for example, the Customer’s employees, freelancers within the scope of their assignment, etc. In particular, the Customer shall not be permitted to duplicate, edit, make publicly accessible or sell the software or parts thereof.
8.4. The Customer shall not be permitted to change, adapt or decompile the software, to decode it, to undertake reverse engineering, or to try to reconstruct or detect a source code or underlying ideas, algorithms, data formats or programming or interoperability interfaces of the product or files contained in the product or created in the course of use of the product, or to reshape the product in any other way into a form readable by humans.
8.5. The Customer may not circumvent technical measures for the protection of the software or apply or provide processes for their circumvention.
8.6. The Customer shall pay the fees which become payable through the actions of users which are registered and therefore authorized by the Customer. The same shall apply in the event of unauthorized use by other third parties if and to the extent that this use is due to a fault on the part of the Customer.
9. Remuneration and terms and conditions of payment
9.1. Unless otherwise agreed, remuneration shall be payable in accordance with the AnyDesk price list applicable at the point of contract conclusion. Objections to invoices for services performed by ANYDESK must be declared within four weeks of receipt of the invoice, in writing, to the address stated on the invoice. Following expiry of the above period the invoice shall be deemed approved by the Customer. ANYDESK shall draw the Customer’s attention to the significance of its conduct when sending the invoice.
9.2. Fees payable for the use of ANYDESK services shall be paid by means of the payment method agreed for the order. Unless otherwise specified herein, invoices shall be payable immediately without discount. Where no payment date has been agreed, default periods shall be determined by the statutory provisions. Remuneration and ancillary costs are stated strictly as net prices exclusive of the applicable statutory taxes and charges.
9.3. Monthly fees are charged on a pro-rata basis for the rest of the month, starting with the first day of serviceable provision. Thereafter, fees are payable monthly in advance. Where the fee is charged for parts of a calendar month, it is charged pro-rata for each day. A full monthly fee will be charged if the Customer terminates the contractual relationship effectively before the expiry of one month; this shall not apply to termination for good cause. Other fees, in particular fees depending on usage, are payable after service provision.
9.4. The Customer shall have a right to offset claims only if its counterclaims have been finally established by a court of law or are undisputed. The Customer may only assert rights of retention for counterclaims from this contractual relationship.
10.1. In the event of payment default on significant amounts, ANYDESK shall be entitled to suspend the services at the Customer’s expense.
10.2. Where monthly payments have been agreed with the Customer, the Customer shall remain under obligation to pay the monthly fees in the event of default. Where the Customer
10.2.1. defaults on the payment of fees, or a significant part thereof, for two consecutive months, or
10.2.2. defaults on the payment of fees to an extent equivalent to the basic monthly fees for two months in a continuous period of more than two months, ANYDESK may terminate the contractual relationship without notice.
10.3. ANYDESK reserves the right to assert further claims due to late payment.
11.1. At the current state of technology, it is impossible to guarantee that data communication via the Internet or wireless will be completely safe, free of faults and/or available at all times. ANYDESK therefore does not guarantee the availability of its service at all times and shall not be liable for disappointed trust of the user in its faultless functioning.
11.2. Technical data, specifications and performance stipulations in public statements, in particular in advertising, do not constitute a warranty as to quality. The functionality of the software is in the first place determined by the contents of the applicable Service Specification and any supplementary agreements made. In other respects, the software must be suitable for the use presupposed under this agreement and otherwise be of the nature common to software of its kind.
11.3. The Customer shall be provided with the software in a suitable condition for use in accordance with the contract. The duty to maintain does not include adaptation of the software to changed conditions of use and technical and functional developments, such as changes in the IT environment, in particular changes of hardware or of the operating system, adaption to the scope of functions of competing products or creation of compatibility with new data formats.
11.4. No-fault liability for damages for defects present at the point of contract conclusion is excluded.
11.5. The Customer shall support ANYDESK in the detection and rectification of defects.
11.6. In the event of material defects in standard software supplied by third parties or performance by a third-party vicarious agent, ANYDESK shall be entitled, with the effect of releasing it from all liability, to assign claims against suppliers, the manufacturer or other third parties to the Customer for the purposes of rectification or replacement supply, unless this cannot reasonably be expected to be acceptable to the Customer. The above shall also apply where ANYDESK has adapted, configured or otherwise changed the software or hardware in accordance with the Customer’s requirements, unless the material defect has been caused by ANYDESK’s own performance.
11.7. The Customer shall inform ANYDESK of defects without undue delay. Warranty claims shall lapse after one year.
12.1. ANYDESK shall be liable without limitation for all resulting damage due to intent or gross negligence or the absence of a guaranteed property. ANYDESK shall be liable without limitation for ordinary negligence in the event of personal injury or death. In all other respects, ANYDESK shall be liable for ordinary negligence only where a duty is breached the performance of which is essential to the proper implementation of the agreement, the breach of which jeopardizes the purpose of the agreement, and on the performance of which the Customer may regularly rely (so-called cardinal duty). Liability for breach of a cardinal duty shall be limited to foreseeable damage typical of the type of agreement. This shall also apply to loss of profits and loss of expected savings. Liability for other remote consequential harm caused by a defect is excluded.
12.2. No-fault liability of ANYDESK for damages (Section 536a BGB) for defects present at the time of contract conclusion is excluded.
12.3. Liability for all other damage is excluded. This applies particularly to data loss or hardware malfunction caused by incompatibility of the existing components on the Customer’s terminals and/or IT systems with the hardware or software which is newly installed or to be amended, and to system malfunction which may be caused by existing faulty configurations or older, interfering drivers which have not been completely removed. This also particularly applies to data loss caused by the failure of the Customer to perform data backup and therefore ensure that lost data may be restored with a reasonable amount of effort.
12.4. Liability in accordance with the provisions of the German Product Liability Act is unaffected.
13. Data protection
13.1. The Customer consents to the collection, storage and processing of personal data, provided these data are required to create, define the substance of, or amend the contractual relationship (user data). These personal data shall be used exclusively for the purposes of contract implementation. In the absence of express consent or a statutory basis the Customer’s personal data shall not be disclosed to third parties who do not perform an active part in contract implementation. Following completed contract implementation the data shall be blocked to prevent further use. The data shall be deleted following expiry of the retention periods specified under tax and commercial provisions, unless the Customer has expressly consented to their further use.
13.2. For the purposes of identifying the terminals (work stations) under the agreement, ANYDESK shall, in the course of remote data access and within the scope of the purpose of the agreement, store the IP and MAC addresses of the respective terminals for a period of seven days for the purposes of preventing risks and removing malfunctions; these data are then deleted without trace unless statutory provisions or official orders require otherwise. Unless otherwise stipulated below, ANYDESK has no other direct or administrative access to the transmitted data contents and shall only store them temporarily for the purposes of transmission of the remote access initiated by the Customer.
13.3. ANYDESK shall, with reference to the respective ANYDESK Customer Identification Number, log the time a program is started and the time and duration of the pertaining session (session protocol); these data are stored in a databank which is not connected to the databank containing the user data of the respective user. ANYDESK shall only log and/or store the contents of the respective data connection (session) on behalf of the Customer if this is part of the agreement, in accordance with the offer chosen by the Customer (session recording).
13.4. With regard to data storage and/or processing pursuant to Section 13.2 and 13.3 above the Customer undertakes to check whether this could affect personal data of third parties. The Customer shall inform ANYDESK of the results of these checks prior to first use. In the event of processing of personal data of third parties on behalf of the Customer, ANYDESK shall collect, process, use or access personal data exclusively within the scope of the agreement concluded and in accordance with the instructions of the Customer. The Customer shall in this event, prior to first use, conclude a separate agreement on the processing of personal data, which shall form the basis of the Supplementary Terms for Data Processing on Behalf of the Customer. This must be sent, signed without amendment, to ANYDESK by postal service. The agreement to process data on behalf of the Customer shall only enter into force upon receipt of the signed agreement by ANYDESK. Where data is processed on behalf of another the Customer is always the responsible agent with regard to the personal data and is solely responsible for compliance with the provisions of the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG).
13.5. ANYDESK shall also store data on the type of processor, screen resolution, graphics card, operating system and potentially other technical data of the terminal used, exclusively in anonymised form and for purely statistical purposes.
13.6. Personal data during the ordering process is transmitted via the internet using TLS-based encryption. Credit card data is not stored by ANYDESK, but collected and processed by ANYDESK’s payment provider. ANYDESK secures its website and other systems using technical and organizational measures against loss, destruction, access, change or processing of the personal data by unauthorized parties.
13.7. ANYDESK warrants that technical and organizational security measures in accordance with Section 9 BDSG and the appendix to Section 9 BDSG are in place.
13.8. In accordance with the German Federal Data Protection Act, the Customer has a right to free information about the data saved about its person and a right to correction, blocking or deletion of these data. The responsible office in this regard is
AnyDesk Software GmbH
14. Support, updates and upgrades
14.1. ANYDESK shall provide the Customer with a support email address and a helpdesk phone number available on weekdays from 9 am to 12 pm and 1 pm to 5 pm with regard to its services. The hotline shall exclusively serve the purpose of providing support to the Customer during use of the ANYDESK services to be provided under this agreement.
14.2. The hotline is also available to other customers. Customer enquiries to the hotline are processed in the order in which they come in. Defects should not be notified to the hotline but directly to the defect team specified in the Service Specification or support.anydesk.com.
14.3. Any software updates will be announced online to all customers upon start of the client software and will be provided online; however, ANYDESK reserves the right to provide extensions to functionalities only to certain types of license (plan options).
14.4. Moreover, ANYDESK reserves the right at any time to deactivate outdated client software following an update. Any deactivation shall be announced online upon start of the client software with at least six weeks’ notice.
15. Amendments to the Terms and Conditions, Service Specifications and prices
15.1. Where ANYDESK intends to make changes to the General Terms and Conditions or Supplementary Terms, the Service Specification, or the prices, the changes shall – in the case of the services provided under the “Free” option – be notified online upon start of the client software at least six weeks prior to the time of their intended applicability and the Customer be required to give its express consent or declare its express objection. The Customer’s decision shall be logged by ANYDESK and stored under the respective Customer ID, IP and MAC address; the provisions of Section 13.1 shall apply in this regard. Where the Customer objects to the intended changes to the General Terms and Conditions or Supplementary Terms, ANYDESK shall be entitled to declare extraordinary termination, to take effect at the time of the changes coming into force. ANYDESK shall make express reference to this consequence in its notification of changes.
15.2. In all other cases, changes shall be notified to the Customer in writing at least six weeks prior to taking effect. Changes shall entitle the Customer to an extraordinary right of termination at the time of the changes coming into force. If no written notice of termination by the Customer is received within six weeks of issue of the notification of changes the changes shall become integral parts of the agreement upon coming into force. ANYDESK shall make express reference to this consequence in its notification of changes.
16. Contract term, termination and software removal
16.1. Unless expressly agreed otherwise, the following provisions shall apply with regard to contract terms and notice periods for termination:
16.1.1. Contracts with a minimum contract term: The minimum contract term shall be one year, to start, subject to agreement to the contrary, upon notification of serviceable access provision to the Customer. The contract shall be terminable in writing by either party subject to a notice period of three months, to take effect at the earliest upon expiry of the minimum contract term. Where no termination is declared the contract term shall in each case be extended by one year. A mere change in the number of users shall not affect the contract term.
16.1.2. Contracts without a minimum contract term: A contract without a minimum term shall be terminable in writing by either party subject to a notice period of six working days (not including Saturdays), to take effect at the end of a month. In the event that the Customer terminates the contract prior to the expiry of one month after the start of serviceable provision the full monthly fee shall be payable.
16.2. The above terms and deadlines shall also apply to terminations of parts of services, e.g. a change in the number of users.
16.3. This shall not affect the right to terminate the contract for good cause.
16.4. Notice of termination may be given in writing by letter, fax or email.
17. Miscellaneous provisions
17.1. The entire commercial relationship between ANYDESK and the Customer shall be governed by the law of the Federal Republic of Germany, to the exclusion of UN law on the sale of goods.

Written reported errors or repeated service requests are assigned a specific “ticket number” no later than the afternoon of the following business day after receipt.
