Smartconnect will have no liability in case the integration or functioning of the Third Party Software can no longer be guaranteed and/or is ceased (including in case of bankruptcy or financial problems of providers, take-overs or company/group restructuring, decisions of providers or right owners to not provide rights/access to the Third Party Software, etc.).

The price of the connector to link the Third Party Software to the Software is mentioned in the Smartconnect pricelist. This connector is developed by Smartconnect, who owns all rights to this connector.
Smartconnect has the right to change its prices in case the right holder of the Third Party Software changes its prices or applies new conditions or in case new developments need to be done on such Third Party Software or the Smartcall connector.
