An important reason is provided in particular if the customer does not observe these GTC or abuses the adgoal program despite reminder. As an example, the latter occurs if the customer only pretends to perform real transactions incentivized with adgoal, if he concludes non-approvable business transactions with the adgoal partners, refuses to settle claims by the adgoal partners without justification or uses adgoal links in any indecent way. Above all, the latter includes methods such as advertising links via PaidMail, LayerAds, ForcedClicks, cookie dropping, spamming, placing of ads with terms protected by trademark rights, using terms protected by trademark rights within the adgoal program or advertising on pornographic, radical, indecent, political websites or websites that are morally damaging to juveniles. If the customer abuses the adgoal program in the above sense, his account shall be blocked as soon as the case of abuse becomes known.

    3. The termination must be made in writing or by email.
    4. adgoal reserves the right to terminate the adgoal program or to replace it with another program at any time without stating any reasons. Except when otherwise stipulated by a special regulation in the replacement program, both cases correspond to a termination by adgoal according to item 9.2 clause 1.
    5. If the customer terminates the membership with a partner company, this does not automatically imply a termination of the adgoal participation.
  10. Changing of the GTC
    1. adgoal is entitled to make changes to these GTC. Should these changes be disadvantageous for the customer, the new GTC shall only become effective if adgoal has notified the customer of the change and the customer does not object to this change within one month after the notification of the change. This notification may also be accepted if it is published separately on the website. Furthermore, a change shall be deemed as approved by the customer if he continues to collect commission after the expiry of one month after he was notified about the change. If the customer does not accept the new GTC according to the above, this shall apply as a termination of the adgoal participation by the customer according to item 9.1. adgoal shall separately inform the participant of this consequence when sending the new GTC.
  11. Other provisions
    1. The customer shall only be entitled to offset his own claims against adgoal’s claims if adgoal has accepted these claims or if these claims have been legally established in favor of the customer.
    2. Should individual provisions of this contract, in particular of these GTC, be or become wholly or partially ineffective, the effectiveness of the residual provisions or of parts of such provisions of the contract and/or these GTC shall remain unaffected. The ineffective provision shall be replaced with the respective statutory regulation or – if there is no statutory regulation available – with a regulation that adgoal and the customer would have chosen had they been aware of the ineffectivenessn.
    3. If the customer is a registered trader, Munich, Germany, shall be agreed as the place of jurisdiction.
    4. The contract including these GTC is subject exclusively to German law under explicit exclusion of all international and supranational legal provisions, in particular of the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods.
