The provider offers its customers a free mobile app (hereinafter referred to as “LeadHound”) in the Apple App store under itunes.apple.com/de/app/leadhound/id1083406634&mt=8. The customer receives access to the back end, configuration manager, and customer-specific database for customized use of the LeadHound app computer program (program) with LeadHound Business api keys, if it purchases “Business” licenses. These licenses include a non-exclusive and non-transferable right to use programs under the following conditions (charged usage for a limited time).
2. Installing LeadHound
LeadHound is installed by downloading the current release of the app in the apple app store from the internet using an iPad or iPhone. LeadHound is then ready for immediate use. However, access to the back end, configuration manager, and customer-specific database and export are only available after the access key has been successfully activated. An Apple App store account is required to install the LeadHound app.
3. Delivery/provision/conditions of use/training
(1) The program was developed for use on certain data processing systems (iPhone and/or iPad) and for collaboration with other specific programs via individual interfaces. The customer’s system must fulfill certain requirements for its specific data processing unit. These are: an iPad or iPhone with at least iOS 8.x or newer, as well as at least one table calculation program that can interpret the XLSX and CSV formats.
(2) The program will be installed on the customer’s device through uploading on certain data processing units designated by it (iPad and/or iPhone) or installed by the customer itself.
(3) If access necessary to use all components of the program fails during transmission, or if it is deleted accidentally after being received by the customer, the provider shall provide a replacement. All previously provided access details will then be blocked.
(4) Access shall be delivered / provided within 24 h after the order is confirmed.
(5) If the provider exceeds the agreed delivery / provision time by more than 72 h for reasons for which it is responsible, the provider shall charge a percentage of the fee for each further day of delay based on the fee invoiced to the customer for the program affected by the delay under Sec. 6. The flat-rate claim for damage indicated in clause 1 does not have to be paid if the provider can show that no damage was suffered, or that damages were lower.
(6) Updates for new framework conditions, such as new versions of iOS and/or new versions of the iPad or iPhone, will be provided to the customer within an appropriate time period after they become available as part of program updates and new release publications. If the customer takes advantage of the offer, these shall be delivered as indicated in para. (1). Para. (2) shall apply accordingly.
(7) Employees can discuss the program during telephone-based training sessions, and explanations will be provided using case studies. Employee questions will be answered by telephone, and employees will practice initial operating processes and learn about others’ experiences.
(8) Case studies will be developed alongside opinion leaders who have already been trained, then presented to other employees. The best course of action is to tailor customer processes to process leads before the training and establish these processes in a handbook so LeadHound can be integrated efficiently.
