8.1. The provider uses PPC Rocket to access preliminary services in the context of Google Ads. The services, technical capabilities and/or requirements offered by Google Ads are subject to regular changes. Therefore, the provider is free in individual cases and in particular with regard to individual modules of PPC Rocket to release itself from the obligation to perform. In case of non-performance due to changes in Google Ads, the provider will immediately inform the user about the unavailability and promptly refund any services already provided by the user.

12.4. The provider is entitled to increase the agreed prices for the contractual services appropriately to compensate for personnel and other cost increases. The provider will notify the user of these price increases in writing or by email; the price increases do not apply for periods for which the user has already made payments.

The only exception to this is data transfer for the provision of PPC Rocket, for example to hosting providers or for billing purposes.
18.3. No information that needs to be treated confidentially is present if the contract partner receiving the information proves that it: 18.3.1 Was known to them or generally accessible before the date of receipt; 18.3.2 Was known or generally accessible to the public before the date of receipt; 18.3.3 Became known or generally accessible to the public after the date of receipt, without the contract partner receiving the information being responsible for this.
18.4. The contracting parties will maintain silence about all confidential information that has come to their knowledge in the context of this contractual relationship or will only use it vis-à-vis third parties - for whatever purpose - with the prior written agreement of the other contract partner.

If the user does not have a general place of jurisdiction in Germany or the EU, or if their residence or habitual residence is unknown at the time the lawsuit is filed, the seat of the provider is also the place of jurisdiction.
