We can accept your order by sending an order confirmation by e-mail or by delivering the goods.

2.3 The processing of the order and transmission of all information required in connection with the conclusion of the contract shall take place by e-mail. You must ensure that the e-mail address you have provided to us is correct, that the receipt of e-mails is technically ensured and, in particular, that it is not prevented by spam filters.

4.5 Partial deliveries/performances shall be permissible, provided that they are reasonable for the Customer.

4.6 Droniq may refuse performance if such performance requires an effort which, taking into account the content of the contract and the principles of good faith, is grossly inconsistent with the Customer's interest in performance. This shall be the case in particular if the omitted performance or production or the performance or production in breach of duty does not or only insignificantly affect the Customer.

24. force majeure

24.1 Droniq shall not be liable for events of force majeure which make the contractual performance considerably more difficult for Droniq or temporarily impede or render impossible the proper performance of the contract. During the existence of force majeure, Droniq's obligations shall be suspended.

24.2 Force majeure shall be deemed to be all circumstances beyond the control of the Parties, regardless of whether they were already apparent at the time of the contractual relationship. In this case, Droniq shall not be required to fulfill its contractual obligations. This shall also apply to subcontractors engaged by Droniq. Force majeure includes but is not limited to: Fire, flood, drought, earthquake, storm, epidemics, pandemics and other natural disasters; governmental actions and decisions of authorities such as.

Droniq has the right to store, process and evaluate all position data transmitted to the UTM system using HOD and/ or GBSAS or other components.

Droniq is obligated to provide the contractually agreed services properly and to maintain them during the entire rental period. Droniq shall not be liable for defects that were known to the customer at the time of the conclusion of this contract.

If there are any defects in the Hardware, Customer shall notify Droniq of such defects without undue delay.

If two or more HODs approach each other, the GPS signals may be affected. Droniq assumes no liability for this.

In case of simultaneous use of the UTM hardware and other transmitting devices, the proper functionality must be ensured by suitable integration tests by the purchaser. If these are not carried out, Droniq shall not assume any liability for possible impairments.

25.2 Services of the Droniq Academy

Droniq provides instruction to the best of its knowledge and belief. Droniq cannot assume any obligation for exact compliance with values and application possibilities.
Droniq does not owe the successful participation or the successful completion of a training course by the course participant. Furthermore, Droniq does not assume any guarantee for a learning success of the Course Participant.
When providing instruction and examinations, the Parties are entitled to terminate the contract in whole or in part at any time for good cause. If the important reason consists in the violation of an obligation of this contract, the extraordinary termination is only permissible after the unsuccessful expiration of a period set for remedy or after unsuccessful complaint.
In particular, an important reason for termination of instruction exists in the following cases, if:

  • a course participant endangers the learning success of the other participants, especially if he or she causes a tremendous slowdown in the training;
  • a course participant fails to attend more than half of the training units through his/her own fault;
  • a student repeatedly fails to follow the instructor's course-related instructions (e.g., preparation for the course);
  • a student insults or injures teachers or other participants in a manner that is not merely insignificant.

In these and comparable cases, Droniq may also exclude the relevant course participant from participation in the instruction without the customer having a right to reduce the price.
Any cancellation must be made in text form.
In the case of instruction, cancellation of participation by the course participant is possible free of charge up to 5 weeks before the start. Cancellation at a later date or non-participation shall not affect the obligation to pay the full course or seminar price. In such cases, the course participant shall be entitled to prove that Droniq has not incurred any damage or that the damage was of a lower amount. Participation in instruction sessions only for part of the time - regardless of the reason - shall not entitle the course or seminar price to be reduced.
Droniq reserves the right to cancel instruction sessions if the number of participants falls below the minimum number or if the teaching staff is ill or for other reasons for which Droniq is not responsible. The course participant will be informed immediately. In addition, Droniq will endeavor to offer an alternative date. If necessary, any training fees already paid will be refunded.

25.3. consultations

The subject of the order is an individually contractually agreed service. A concrete success is not owed.
The order shall be executed in accordance with the principles of proper professional practice. Droniq is entitled to make use of experts and other third parties for the execution of the order.
Droniq decides at its own discretion which employees will be used for the execution of the order. Droniq reserves the right to replace individual employees.
The Customer undertakes to provide Droniq with all necessary support free of charge and, in particular, to supply the information required within the scope of the subject matter of the contract. Upon Droniq's request, Customer shall ensure appropriate working conditions at the project site and shall inform Droniq, without special request, of all documents, processes and circumstances that may be of importance for the execution of the order.
Upon Droniq's request, Customer shall confirm in writing the correctness and completeness of the documents submitted by it as well as its information and oral statements.
Customer and Droniq may terminate the contract for good cause. The notice period is 14 days.
If the contractual relationship ends prematurely, Droniq shall be entitled to remuneration for the work performed up to that point.

26. severability clause

Should any present or future provision of this contract be invalid or void in whole or in part, or should a gap in this contract or its supplements become apparent that requires supplementation, this shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions. In the event of an invalid provision, the parties shall be obliged to negotiate an effective and reasonable replacement provision which comes as close as possible to the economic purpose pursued by the parties with the invalid provision.

27 Applicable law

The contractual relationship shall be governed by the laws of the Federal Republic of Germany to the exclusion of the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods.

28. place of jurisdiction

28.1 Insofar as Customer is an entrepreneur within the meaning of § 14 BGB (German Civil Code), a legal entity under public law or a special fund under public law, the place of jurisdiction shall be Frankfurt am Main or, at the discretion of Droniq, the general place of jurisdiction of Customer.

DRONIQlive: How drones help to rescue fawns

Rescuing fawns with the help of drones is a hot topic. Every spring, farmers start mowing their fields and unfortunately fawns are often caught by the mowing machines without being detected.

Drones can be a great help in saving the animals! Equipped with thermal imaging cameras, drone pilots can spot the animals from the air before it is too late. This allows farmers, hunters or other helpers to rescue the fawns in good time.

In our next edition of DRONIQlive on Thu, 23.05.2024 at 7 pm, we will take a closer look at this topic. We look forward to your participation!
