II. Essential Characteristics of the Service contracted / Scope of Service purchased

SurveyTransfer is a web-based software for data sharing and visualization, designed primarily to facilitate the quick, convenient, and secure project-level sharing of large and specialized files (e.g., las, laz, obj, ply, ifc, shp, shz, dxf, dwg, geotiff) generated in the course of mapping and 3D surveying among business partners. 

This contract pertains to the limited usage rights and provision of services as defined in these General Terms and Conditions (GTC) for the purpose of using and accessing the SurveyTransfer service between the Service Provider and the business or individual client (hereinafter collectively referred to as the User) submitting the registration and order. The minimum system requirements for using SurveyTransfer are:

  • The latest Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox web browser
  • A 2.7 GHz Intel Core i3 or higher performance processor
  • 2 GB RAM
  • A GPU with 1 GB RAM 

Users can register and log in to the software at https://app.surveytransfer.net/sign-up/. After the successful uploading of files to SurveyTransfer software, the processing of the files begins for supported file types so that they can be displayed in the web browser, enabling the creation of maps and 3D representations from the data uploaded. Users can download and delete the uploaded files. After logging out or closing the application, the uploaded files and the projects and views created and saved are not deleted; they are stored under the user’s account and can be accessed even after logging in again (https://app.surveytransfer.net/sign-in/). To ensure continuous service, the maximum file size that can be uploaded to the software is currently limited to 10 GB. 

Prices are stated in net value and in US dollars. The software fee covers the package chosen for monthly or annual usage and always applies to the latest version of the software. The Service Provider is entitled to restrict the provision of services if the User does not meet their payment obligations by the due date. SurveyTransfer Ltd. allows Users to try out a trial version of the SurveyTransfer software with limited functionality, for 14 days with 10 GB of storage space, free of charge. In the paid packages of the software, file processing takes precedence over the trial version. After the trial period expires, the uploaded files will be deleted after a 7-day grace period, and the account will be locked. If a subscription is made after the free trial period (or during the trial period), the user’s account will be reactivated, and they can continue to use the SurveyTransfer data sharing software with the storage capacity specified in the selected package during the subscription period. 

1. If the User decides to upgrade to a higher-cost package, they can do so after logging into the software user account through the Packages page (https://app.surveytransfer.net/plans). 

2. If the User wishes to switch to a lower cost package, they must not exceed the limitations set in the package to be subscribed to. If the User exceeds the limitations of the lower cost package, they must ensure compliance with the limitations of that package before switching back. If the User’s subscription expires, they will receive a notification by email about the renewal of the subscription within 7 days. In so far as the User does not renew their subscription, the uploaded files will be permanently deleted after a 14-day grace period, and the User’s account will be locked until they renew their subscription.

IV. The Contract

The contract is created as soon as the User registers in the SurveyTransfer software, thereby indicating acceptance of these Terms and Conditions. The contract is electronic and cannot be considered a written contract. It is recorded in the Service Provider’s database as an order and is not available in paper format.

In order to use the Service and to pay, the User need to provide the following information

  • User information
    – Email address
    – Password
  • Billing information:
    – Name
    – Address
    – Telephone number (optional)
    – Tax ID

It is hereby stated the SurveyTransfer does not take responsibility for the authenticity of the data provided by the User.

● they will accept an electronic invoice for the purchase; 

● they have read and accepted the related Privacy Policy and the content of these Terms and Conditions; 

● they understand that, according to Chapter V, the right of withdrawal can be exercised before payment, and they waive the right of withdrawal by sending the payment;

After financial completion of the order, any request for the reissuing of an invoice due to data entry errors (e.g. registered office address) will incur a separate administrative fee determined on the basis of the current price list, which can be requested via the [email protected] email address or via the message sender on the https://surveytransfer.net/#contact website.

The User can withdraw from an order submitted without prior notice up until financial completion is initiated. The User cannot exercise the right of withdrawal once the service has been paid for, as the creation of the environment necessary for an electronic signature, hosting, an account, or invoice commences upon detection of the payment, meaning that from that point the service is considered to have commenced.

VI. Express Warranty, Product Warranty, Availability, Post-sales Services, Liability 

The provider guarantees that the software product, as described in the Help section (https://surveytransfer.net/how-to-use) and other web-based information, possesses the characteristics specified for the given package/module. Legal compliance, program updates, and bug fixes will always be made available in the latest version.

Availability 

The Provider may carry out both planned and extraordinary maintenance. The time of planned maintenance shall not be counted as downtime. The purpose of planned maintenance is software updates, maintenance, and server expansion to maintain infrastructure functionality.

The duration of planned maintenance may not exceed a total of 15 days within a one-year period. These 15 days are calculated by adding up the individual maintenance periods. The Provider is obliged to notify Customers in advance of the timing and expected duration of planned maintenance in the most reasonably accurate way possible – in so far as this is technically feasible.

Errors and Reporting 

Reporting a program error or a problem related to the operation of services can be done via email to [email protected] or through the message sender at https://surveytransfer.net/feedback/, preferably accompanied by a detailed description that facilitates the reproduction of the error. The determination of a program error is at the discretion of the Provider, and the warranty (implied warranty) is valid at the Provider’s premises. If the issue does not qualify as a program error and the User insists on further analysis or attempts to resolve the issue, the User is obliged to pay the software operation fee established based on the current price list.

Security of geospatial data (maps and 3D data) managed by SurveyTransfer

Upon upload to SurveyTransfer, geospatial data (maps and 3D files) undergoes processing and conversion into web-ready formats by Contabo GmbH’s (“Contabo”) servers, ensuring compatibility and accessibility. However, for long-term storage, the responsibility shifts to Backblaze, Inc. (“Backblaze”), where the data is securely retained. Both Contabo and Backblaze are accountable for the security and storage of the uploaded geospatial data, as well as any potential errors in handling or storage processes. For detailed information regarding security protocols and storage practices, individuals are encouraged to refer to the General Terms and Conditions of Contabo and Backblaze respectively.

SurveyTransfer employees may not disclose data stored in SurveyTransfer to third parties. The developers of SurveyTransfer can only use the data uploaded to the data sharer in extremely justified cases, such as ensuring the proper functioning of the application.

Liability and Compensation 

Liability for any damage arising from the Service is only applicable if the User proves that the Provider caused the damage through deliberate breach of contract or failed to provide information about an essential characteristic of the Service which the entitled party was unaware of.

The Provider does not assume responsibility for data loss during maintenance work or modifications made by the User.

The Provider does not guarantee that the software will fully satisfy the User’s needs; the User is responsible for evaluating this through preliminary testing (in the free trial period). It should be noted that content demonstrating use does not constitute personal advice; therefore, the Provider’s liability is limited to what is stated in this contract, and any potential compensation may not exceed the amount paid for the right to use the software product(s) or the consideration paid for the services.

The rules of the Civil Code apply to this chapter.
