Toyota Material Handling Austria GmbH (the "Supplier") operates one or more websites or other internet-based electronic transaction systems (collectively the "Website") for the purchase and sale of certain spare parts of material handling equipment displayed or recorded on the Website (collectively "Products"). Each transaction for the purchase and sale of Products (a "Transaction) will begoverned by the general terms and conditions (collectively the "GTCs") applied by Supplier from time to time to such Transaction.
The customer identified below ("Customer") wishes to access and utilise the Website and Supplier is willing to provide such access upon the terms and conditions set forth in this password application and in Schedule 1 (Parts shop Access Terms) (the "Agreement"). For this reason, Customer confirms that the individual(s) indicated below (each a "Designated User") is/are authorized by Customer to execute Transactions on behalf of Customer.
Supplier shall issue to each Designated User a password (a "Password"). Customer understands and agrees that:
(a) it shall only request and maintain a Password for Designated Users who are employed by Customer from time to time and authorised by it to access and use the Website (including to execute Transactions by submitting orders for the purchase of Products displayed or recorded on the Website on Customer's behalf) and to no other person;
(b) it shall be solely responsible for any and all acts or omissions with respect to the use of the Website by any person using the Passwords (including the execution of any Transaction by the submission of orders for the purchase of Products displayed or recorded on the Website by such person on Customer's behalf);
(c) Supplier will have no responsibility whatsoever for controlling or monitoring the use of any Password and shall have no liability for the use thereof;
(d) Customer shall forthwith notify Supplier if and when any Designated User ceases to be an employee of Customer; and
(e) Customer will implement and enforce reasonable measures to protect the confidentiality of the Website and shall immediately notify Supplier of any unauthorised disclosure or use of any Password (whether by a Designated User or otherwise).
Any order submitted on the Website will result in a Transaction, which will be deemed to be "in writing" and to have been "signed" (and any record of the Transaction, any GTCs or any order placed will be deemed to be "in writing" for all purposes). Without limitation of the foregoing, Customer agrees that it will be bound by any order submitted on the Website through a "click" agreement (or other action specified on the Website from time to time) by any person using a Password, subject to and in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement. Customer warrants and covenants that all information provided by Customer to Supplier is true, accurate and complete in all respects and that Supplier shall be entitled to continue to rely on any information previously provided to it by Customer in connection with the execution of Transactions through the Website.
If a Designated User applies for access to the Website on behalf of Customer before Customer signature of the Agreement, said Designated User is representing to Supplier that he/she is authorized by Customer to execute Transactions on the Website. Supplier may therefore issue a Password to the Designated User before receiving the signed Agreement from Customer. However, if Supplier has not received the signed Agreement within five business days after the Designated User’s registration on the Website, Supplier reserves the right to close the account and/or to hold the Designated User responsible for the payment for Transactions executed by him/her.
Each Transaction executed by Customer on the Website will be governed by the applicable GTCs.
(a) Termination. This Agreement shall be effective until such time it is terminated, for whatever reason, by either Supplier or Customer by the giving of one week's written notice to the other.
(b) Survival. If this Agreement is terminated then all of the provisions of this Agreement shall lapse and cease to have effect and Customer's access to and use of the Website shall expire, provided, however, that no such termination shall affect the parties' liabilities with respect to any Transactions entered into prior to the time such termination is effective, which Transactions shall remain effective pursuant to the applicable GTCs, provided, further, that nothing in this paragraph (b) shall relieve Supplier or Customer of any liability for any failure or refusal to perform its obligations under this Agreement.
(c) Suspension Irrespective of whether this Agreement is terminated,Supplier reserves the right to suspend or restrict Customer's access to or use of the Website without prior notice.
