  2. FRONIUS Solar.web, Access Data and Updates for Warranty
    1. FRONIUS Solar.web is accessible at, http://www.solarweb.com. FRONIUS Solar.web provides (registered) users with information, services and products; these services are essentially based on the recording, processing, management and use of parameters obtained from electrotechnical devices, solar energy systems, and photovoltaic systems (hereinafter referred to as “systems”). FRONIUS Solar.web enables the user to access the services provided via the internet. The services offered may be used by the operators of the respective systems or by a third party (e.g. an installer) acting on their behalf; this third party guarantees that they have been commissioned in this way by the system operator and indemnifies Fronius in this respect. The license agreement for FRONIUS Solar.web is always made between the system operator and Fronius.

Points 3.2.2. to 3.5. of the Fronius Webshop terms and conditions (available at https://shop.fronius.com/terms) will also apply in the same way with regard to registering for FRONIUS Solar.web and purchasing services via FRONIUS Solar.web, whereby in the absence of monetary compensation for using FRONIUS Solar.web, duty of payment rules will not be applied.

If no contract has been signed stating that costs must be paid for services, Fronius will use its discretion to decide whether to allow the user to use FRONIUS Solar.web and the services on offer, to restrict use or to bar them completely. If a contract has been signed stating that costs must be paid, Fronius is entitled to restrict access to the extent necessary or to end all use, in the event of misuse, or to terminate the license agreement with a suitable notice period. The user will not be entitled to any damages in under such circumstances.
