License terms

1. Scope of application
The companies named above (hereinafter referred to as “WEISS”) supply computer programs in electronic form such as Simpati and PLC control and visualisation programs (hereinafter Software) to customers (licensees).

The terms and conditions indicated in the following apply exclusively to the granting of usage rights to Software by WEISS. Other general business terms and conditions of the customer shall not apply, unless expressly approved by WEISS (in writing as a minimum requirement).

2. Deliveries and services of WEISS
The scope of delivery is specified in detail by the current product description including additional information in the application documentation. WEISS supplies the Software in the version that is valid at the time of supply or provision. The scope of delivery does not include installation, instruction or training services. The Software is supplied on a data storage device or can be downloaded from a WEISS website at WEISS’ discretion. The customer receives rights to the object code of the Software exclusively. It shall not have the right to use or transfer the source code.

Services relating to the support and maintenance of the Software shall be provided by WEISS exclusively on the basis of a separate written agreement.

3. Granting of usage rights
WEISS grants the customer - subject to a divergent individual, written contractual agreement - and subject to the condition precedent of complete and timely payment of the agreed remuneration, the non-exclusive, permanent, irrevocable and irredeemable right to use the software, i.e. in particular to store or load it permanently or temporarily, display or execute it.

Unless expressly agreed otherwise, the usage rights shall be granted exclusively for the country in which the customer has its headquarters. If the customer's headquarters are within the European Union, usage rights shall apply across the EU. The customer may use the software only for the contractually stipulated purpose. Commercial sub-leasing is prohibited. Duplication of the software is permitted only to the extent necessary for use as contractually agreed. The customer may produce backup copies of the software in accordance with its codes of practice to the extent necessary. Backup copies on mobile data storage devices must be identified as such with the copyright notice of the original data storage device applied.

Should the customer transfer its usage rights to a third party, it must impose on this party its duties and obligations from these terms and conditions with respect to the content and scope of the usage rights. Transferring to a third party shall remove the customer’s entitlement to use the Software. It must delete any copies it holds of the Software, provided such are not copies produced for backing up in accordance with the terms and conditions.

The customer undertakes not to convert the software to an alternative code form or to make any changes, extensions or otherwise edit the software, except as permissible in accordance with statutory provisions.

Where WEISS provides to the customer extensions to (e.g. patches, extensions to user manual) or new editions of the software (e.g. updates, upgrades) replacing software provided previously (“outdated software”), such are subject to these terms and conditions. Where WEISS provides a new edition of the software, the entitlement of the customer to use the outdated software shall cease, including without the explicit request by WEISS to return the software, once it begins using the new edition in a productive capacity. WEISS, however, shall grant the customer a three-month transition phase in which it may continue using both versions side-by-side. Duplication or alteration of the application documentation is not permissible, subject to the above provisions.

In the case of software products of third party manufacturers sold by WEISS or third party software components implemented by WEISS, the terms and conditions of use of the respective third party manufacturer shall apply to these software packages/components in the first instance.

4. Duty of cooperation of the customer
The customer shall take reasonable precautions to safeguard against software supplied by WEISS failing to operate properly, either partially or entirely. It shall be required to test the Software thoroughly to ensure the absence of defects, its usability for the purpose it intends and in the hardware and software environment provided by it, before putting into operational use. This also applies to software that it receives from WEISS in connection with the provision of maintenance or based on warranty. The customer shall be solely responsible for ensuring the presence or establishment of a serviceable, adequately dimensioned hardware and software environment.

Furthermore, it shall ensure that its data is backed up using the latest systems. It shall ensure that any up-to-date data stored in machine-readable format is reproducible with reasonable effort. The customer shall maintain an IT security concept using the latest available systems, to consist of technical and organisational measures. This shall include in particular appropriate measures to prevent unauthorised third party access to the Software.

The customer must immediately report to WEISS any defects detected. Notifications of defects must include information on the nature of the fault, in the case of software the module in which the fault occurred, and the operations undertaken when the fault occurred. A prerequisite for supplementary performance in accordance with Section 5 is the reproducibility or detectability of the reported defect.

5. Material defects and defects of title
WEISS provides the customer with deliveries and services free of material defects and defects of title. The customer is aware that minor software bugs that do not restrict the usability of the software or which limit its use only to a negligible degree cannot be fully eliminated in software products. Bugs of this nature do not constitute software defects in terms of the warranty. In the case of software, moreover, functional impairments resulting from the hardware and software environment provided by the customer, incorrect operation, defective external data, malfunctions of computer networks or other causes originating from the area of risk of the customer are not considered defects.

WEISS shall not be responsible for software modified unlawfully by the customer, unless the customer can prove that the modification is not the cause of the reported fault. If products or services provided by WEISS are faulty and a corresponding complaint has been made in writing and in good time by the customer, WEISS shall provide replacements or rectify any issues at its discretion. WEISS is to be given the chance to do so within a reasonable time frame of at least 14 working days. In the case of software, rectification in particular may take the course of providing a new program version, or WEISS indicating reasonable methods to circumvent the effects of the fault. The customer must accept the provision of a new program version including if associated with acceptable outlay for adaptation.

Rectification in the case of defects of title occurs by WEISS providing the customer with the means to use the software legally. WEISS in this regard may replace the software product for one of equal value and which complies with contractual provisions, if acceptable to the customer. Should third parties claim against the customer on the basis of property rights, the customer must notify WEISS of this in writing immediately. WEISS shall at its discretion and in consultation with the customer defend against or settle such claims. The customer must not acknowledge third party claims or settle these amicably. WEISS shall defend against third party claims at its own expense and shall indemnify the customer against all necessary costs and losses associated with defending against such action, provided such is not due to conduct on the part of the customer in breach of the terms and conditions. If attempts at rectification fail, the customer shall be allowed to reduce the fee payable or withdraw from the contract. Withdrawal, however, is permissible only if the customer previously and explicitly threatens WEISS with this in writing with a suitable further deadline.

6. Compensation for damages
Unless otherwise stated in the following regulations, WEISS shall be liable in accordance with statutory provisions in the case of the breach of contractual and non-contractual obligations. WEISS shall be liable for compensation for damages - irrespective of the legal basis - in the context of fault liability in cases of intent and gross negligence. In the case of simple negligence, WEISS shall be liable in accordance with statutory provisions subject to a more moderate standard of liability (e.g. for diligence in own affairs) only

a) for losses resulting from loss of life, physical injury or damage to health,

b) for losses resulting from a significant breach of a material contractual obligation (an obligation the fulfilment of which is essential to the proper execution of the contract and which the contractual partner regularly expects and should expect to be complied with); in such cases, however, liability shall be limited to the compensation of predictable, typically occurring losses.

The liability limitations indicated above shall also apply to breaches of duty by or benefiting persons whose culpability WEISS is responsible for in accordance with statutory provisions. The limitations shall not apply if WEISS fraudulently conceals a defect or has assumed a quality guarantee, or to claims of the customer under the Product Liability Act [Produkthaftungsgesetz]. Statements on the properties of the Software are to be viewed as descriptive of performance and do not constitute a quality or durability guarantee as defined by Art. 443 of the German Civil Code [BGB - Bürgerliches Gesetzbuch].

In the case of data loss, WEISS shall be liable only for losses that would still have occurred had the customer properly backed up data (Section 4).

7. Liability of customer and extraordinary termination
The customer shall be liable to WEISS for all losses incurred by WEISS from the violation of copyright provisions in Section 3.

WEISS shall be entitled to revoke the usage rights granted to the customer if the customer repeatedly exceeds the usage rights granted under Section 3 despite a warning from WEISS or fails to take suitable IT security precautions using the latest systems as defined by Section 4. In this case, the customer shall be obligated to immediately cease use of the original software along with any copies and to destroy these. The customer must send a written confirmation of destruction to the address specified below.

8. Place of jurisdiction and choice of law
The law of the Federal Republic of Germany to the exclusion of the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) applies to all legal relationships between WEISS and the customer based on these terms and conditions.

The parties are aware that the software may be subject to export and import restrictions. In particular, authorisation requirements may exist or usage of the software or associated technologies may be subject to restrictions outside of Germany. The customer is required to adhere to applicable export and import control provisions of the Federal Republic of Germany, the European Union and the USA, and all other relevant regulations. Fulfilment of the contract by the Licensor is subject to the proviso that fulfilment is not impeded by national and international regulations of export and import law or by any other legal provisions.

If the customer is a merchant, public-law special fund or a legal entity under public law, the exclusive place of jurisdiction for all claims resulting from the aforementioned legal relationships shall be the registered office of WEISS; where legal action is taken by WEISS, the general place of jurisdiction of the customer shall also apply.

The companies named above (hereinafter referred to as “WEISS”) supply computer programs in electronic form such as Simpati and PLC control and visualisation programs (hereinafter Software) to customers (licensees).

The terms and conditions indicated in the following apply exclusively to the granting of usage rights to Software by WEISS. Other general business terms and conditions of the customer shall not apply, unless expressly approved by WEISS (in writing as a minimum requirement).

2. Deliveries and services of WEISS
The scope of delivery is specified in detail by the current product description including additional information in the application documentation. WEISS supplies the Software in the version that is valid at the time of supply or provision. The scope of delivery does not include installation, instruction or training services. The Software is supplied on a data storage device or can be downloaded from a WEISS website at WEISS’ discretion. The customer receives rights to the object code of the Software exclusively. It shall not have the right to use or transfer the source code.

Services relating to the support and maintenance of the Software shall be provided by WEISS exclusively on the basis of a separate written agreement.

3. Granting of usage rights
WEISS grants the customer - subject to a divergent individual, written contractual agreement - and subject to the condition precedent of complete and timely payment of the agreed remuneration, the non-exclusive, permanent, irrevocable and irredeemable right to use the software, i.e. in particular to store or load it permanently or temporarily, display or execute it.

Unless expressly agreed otherwise, the usage rights shall be granted exclusively for the country in which the customer has its headquarters. If the customer's headquarters are within the European Union, usage rights shall apply across the EU. The customer may use the software only for the contractually stipulated purpose. Commercial sub-leasing is prohibited. Duplication of the software is permitted only to the extent necessary for use as contractually agreed. The customer may produce backup copies of the software in accordance with its codes of practice to the extent necessary. Backup copies on mobile data storage devices must be identified as such with the copyright notice of the original data storage device applied.

Should the customer transfer its usage rights to a third party, it must impose on this party its duties and obligations from these terms and conditions with respect to the content and scope of the usage rights. Transferring to a third party shall remove the customer’s entitlement to use the Software. It must delete any copies it holds of the Software, provided such are not copies produced for backing up in accordance with the terms and conditions.

The customer undertakes not to convert the software to an alternative code form or to make any changes, extensions or otherwise edit the software, except as permissible in accordance with statutory provisions.

Where WEISS provides to the customer extensions to (e.g. patches, extensions to user manual) or new editions of the software (e.g. updates, upgrades) replacing software provided previously (“outdated software”), such are subject to these terms and conditions. Where WEISS provides a new edition of the software, the entitlement of the customer to use the outdated software shall cease, including without the explicit request by WEISS to return the software, once it begins using the new edition in a productive capacity. WEISS, however, shall grant the customer a three-month transition phase in which it may continue using both versions side-by-side. Duplication or alteration of the application documentation is not permissible, subject to the above provisions.

In the case of software products of third party manufacturers sold by WEISS or third party software components implemented by WEISS, the terms and conditions of use of the respective third party manufacturer shall apply to these software packages/components in the first instance.

4. Duty of cooperation of the customer
The customer shall take reasonable precautions to safeguard against software supplied by WEISS failing to operate properly, either partially or entirely. It shall be required to test the Software thoroughly to ensure the absence of defects, its usability for the purpose it intends and in the hardware and software environment provided by it, before putting into operational use. This also applies to software that it receives from WEISS in connection with the provision of maintenance or based on warranty. The customer shall be solely responsible for ensuring the presence or establishment of a serviceable, adequately dimensioned hardware and software environment.

Furthermore, it shall ensure that its data is backed up using the latest systems. It shall ensure that any up-to-date data stored in machine-readable format is reproducible with reasonable effort. The customer shall maintain an IT security concept using the latest available systems, to consist of technical and organisational measures. This shall include in particular appropriate measures to prevent unauthorised third party access to the Software.

The customer must immediately report to WEISS any defects detected. Notifications of defects must include information on the nature of the fault, in the case of software the module in which the fault occurred, and the operations undertaken when the fault occurred. A prerequisite for supplementary performance in accordance with Section 5 is the reproducibility or detectability of the reported defect.

5. Material defects and defects of title
WEISS provides the customer with deliveries and services free of material defects and defects of title. The customer is aware that minor software bugs that do not restrict the usability of the software or which limit its use only to a negligible degree cannot be fully eliminated in software products. Bugs of this nature do not constitute software defects in terms of the warranty. In the case of software, moreover, functional impairments resulting from the hardware and software environment provided by the customer, incorrect operation, defective external data, malfunctions of computer networks or other causes originating from the area of risk of the customer are not considered defects.

WEISS shall not be responsible for software modified unlawfully by the customer, unless the customer can prove that the modification is not the cause of the reported fault. If products or services provided by WEISS are faulty and a corresponding complaint has been made in writing and in good time by the customer, WEISS shall provide replacements or rectify any issues at its discretion. WEISS is to be given the chance to do so within a reasonable time frame of at least 14 working days. In the case of software, rectification in particular may take the course of providing a new program version, or WEISS indicating reasonable methods to circumvent the effects of the fault. The customer must accept the provision of a new program version including if associated with acceptable outlay for adaptation.

Rectification in the case of defects of title occurs by WEISS providing the customer with the means to use the software legally. WEISS in this regard may replace the software product for one of equal value and which complies with contractual provisions, if acceptable to the customer. Should third parties claim against the customer on the basis of property rights, the customer must notify WEISS of this in writing immediately. WEISS shall at its discretion and in consultation with the customer defend against or settle such claims. The customer must not acknowledge third party claims or settle these amicably. WEISS shall defend against third party claims at its own expense and shall indemnify the customer against all necessary costs and losses associated with defending against such action, provided such is not due to conduct on the part of the customer in breach of the terms and conditions. If attempts at rectification fail, the customer shall be allowed to reduce the fee payable or withdraw from the contract. Withdrawal, however, is permissible only if the customer previously and explicitly threatens WEISS with this in writing with a suitable further deadline.

6. Compensation for damages
Unless otherwise stated in the following regulations, WEISS shall be liable in accordance with statutory provisions in the case of the breach of contractual and non-contractual obligations. WEISS shall be liable for compensation for damages - irrespective of the legal basis - in the context of fault liability in cases of intent and gross negligence. In the case of simple negligence, WEISS shall be liable in accordance with statutory provisions subject to a more moderate standard of liability (e.g. for diligence in own affairs) only

a) for losses resulting from loss of life, physical injury or damage to health,

b) for losses resulting from a significant breach of a material contractual obligation (an obligation the fulfilment of which is essential to the proper execution of the contract and which the contractual partner regularly expects and should expect to be complied with); in such cases, however, liability shall be limited to the compensation of predictable, typically occurring losses.

The liability limitations indicated above shall also apply to breaches of duty by or benefiting persons whose culpability WEISS is responsible for in accordance with statutory provisions. The limitations shall not apply if WEISS fraudulently conceals a defect or has assumed a quality guarantee, or to claims of the customer under the Product Liability Act [Produkthaftungsgesetz]. Statements on the properties of the Software are to be viewed as descriptive of performance and do not constitute a quality or durability guarantee as defined by Art. 443 of the German Civil Code [BGB - Bürgerliches Gesetzbuch].

In the case of data loss, WEISS shall be liable only for losses that would still have occurred had the customer properly backed up data (Section 4).

7. Liability of customer and extraordinary termination
The customer shall be liable to WEISS for all losses incurred by WEISS from the violation of copyright provisions in Section 3.

WEISS shall be entitled to revoke the usage rights granted to the customer if the customer repeatedly exceeds the usage rights granted under Section 3 despite a warning from WEISS or fails to take suitable IT security precautions using the latest systems as defined by Section 4. In this case, the customer shall be obligated to immediately cease use of the original software along with any copies and to destroy these. The customer must send a written confirmation of destruction to the address specified below.

8. Place of jurisdiction and choice of law
The law of the Federal Republic of Germany to the exclusion of the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) applies to all legal relationships between WEISS and the customer based on these terms and conditions.

The parties are aware that the software may be subject to export and import restrictions. In particular, authorisation requirements may exist or usage of the software or associated technologies may be subject to restrictions outside of Germany. The customer is required to adhere to applicable export and import control provisions of the Federal Republic of Germany, the European Union and the USA, and all other relevant regulations. Fulfilment of the contract by the Licensor is subject to the proviso that fulfilment is not impeded by national and international regulations of export and import law or by any other legal provisions.

If the customer is a merchant, public-law special fund or a legal entity under public law, the exclusive place of jurisdiction for all claims resulting from the aforementioned legal relationships shall be the registered office of WEISS; where legal action is taken by WEISS, the general place of jurisdiction of the customer shall also apply.

Unless expressly agreed otherwise, the usage rights shall be granted exclusively for the country in which the customer has its headquarters.

Should the customer transfer its usage rights to a third party, it must impose on this party its duties and obligations from these terms and conditions with respect to the content and scope of the usage rights. Transferring to a third party shall remove the customer’s entitlement to use the Software.

This also applies to software that it receives from WEISS in connection with the provision of maintenance or based on warranty. The customer shall be solely responsible for ensuring the presence or establishment of a serviceable, adequately dimensioned hardware and software environment.

Furthermore, it shall ensure that its data is backed up using the latest systems. It shall ensure that any up-to-date data stored in machine-readable format is reproducible with reasonable effort. The customer shall maintain an IT security concept using the latest available systems, to consist of technical and organisational measures. This shall include in particular appropriate measures to prevent unauthorised third party access to the Software.

The customer must immediately report to WEISS any defects detected. Notifications of defects must include information on the nature of the fault, in the case of software the module in which the fault occurred, and the operations undertaken when the fault occurred.

In the case of software, rectification in particular may take the course of providing a new program version, or WEISS indicating reasonable methods to circumvent the effects of the fault. The customer must accept the provision of a new program version including if associated with acceptable outlay for adaptation.

Rectification in the case of defects of title occurs by WEISS providing the customer with the means to use the software legally. WEISS in this regard may replace the software product for one of equal value and which complies with contractual provisions, if acceptable to the customer. Should third parties claim against the customer on the basis of property rights, the customer must notify WEISS of this in writing immediately. WEISS shall at its discretion and in consultation with the customer defend against or settle such claims. The customer must not acknowledge third party claims or settle these amicably.

Withdrawal, however, is permissible only if the customer previously and explicitly threatens WEISS with this in writing with a suitable further deadline.

6. Compensation for damages
Unless otherwise stated in the following regulations, WEISS shall be liable in accordance with statutory provisions in the case of the breach of contractual and non-contractual obligations. WEISS shall be liable for compensation for damages - irrespective of the legal basis - in the context of fault liability in cases of intent and gross negligence.

In the case of data loss, WEISS shall be liable only for losses that would still have occurred had the customer properly backed up data (Section 4).

7. Liability of customer and extraordinary termination

2. Deliveries and services of WEISS
The scope of delivery is specified in detail by the current product description including additional information in the application documentation. WEISS supplies the Software in the version that is valid at the time of supply or provision. The scope of delivery does not include installation, instruction or training services. The Software is supplied on a data storage device or can be downloaded from a WEISS website at WEISS’ discretion. The customer receives rights to the object code of the Software exclusively. It shall not have the right to use or transfer the source code.

Services relating to the support and maintenance of the Software shall be provided by WEISS exclusively on the basis of a separate written agreement.

3. Granting of usage rights
WEISS grants the customer - subject to a divergent individual, written contractual agreement - and subject to the condition precedent of complete and timely payment of the agreed remuneration, the non-exclusive, permanent, irrevocable and irredeemable right to use the software, i.e. in particular to store or load it permanently or temporarily, display or execute it.

Unless expressly agreed otherwise, the usage rights shall be granted exclusively for the country in which the customer has its headquarters. If the customer's headquarters are within the European Union, usage rights shall apply across the EU. The customer may use the software only for the contractually stipulated purpose. Commercial sub-leasing is prohibited. Duplication of the software is permitted only to the extent necessary for use as contractually agreed. The customer may produce backup copies of the software in accordance with its codes of practice to the extent necessary. Backup copies on mobile data storage devices must be identified as such with the copyright notice of the original data storage device applied.

Should the customer transfer its usage rights to a third party, it must impose on this party its duties and obligations from these terms and conditions with respect to the content and scope of the usage rights. Transferring to a third party shall remove the customer’s entitlement to use the Software. It must delete any copies it holds of the Software, provided such are not copies produced for backing up in accordance with the terms and conditions.

The customer undertakes not to convert the software to an alternative code form or to make any changes, extensions or otherwise edit the software, except as permissible in accordance with statutory provisions.

Where WEISS provides to the customer extensions to (e.g. patches, extensions to user manual) or new editions of the software (e.g. updates, upgrades) replacing software provided previously (“outdated software”), such are subject to these terms and conditions. Where WEISS provides a new edition of the software, the entitlement of the customer to use the outdated software shall cease, including without the explicit request by WEISS to return the software, once it begins using the new edition in a productive capacity. WEISS, however, shall grant the customer a three-month transition phase in which it may continue using both versions side-by-side. Duplication or alteration of the application documentation is not permissible, subject to the above provisions.

In the case of software products of third party manufacturers sold by WEISS or third party software components implemented by WEISS, the terms and conditions of use of the respective third party manufacturer shall apply to these software packages/components in the first instance.

4. Duty of cooperation of the customer
The customer shall take reasonable precautions to safeguard against software supplied by WEISS failing to operate properly, either partially or entirely. It shall be required to test the Software thoroughly to ensure the absence of defects, its usability for the purpose it intends and in the hardware and software environment provided by it, before putting into operational use. This also applies to software that it receives from WEISS in connection with the provision of maintenance or based on warranty. The customer shall be solely responsible for ensuring the presence or establishment of a serviceable, adequately dimensioned hardware and software environment.

Furthermore, it shall ensure that its data is backed up using the latest systems. It shall ensure that any up-to-date data stored in machine-readable format is reproducible with reasonable effort. The customer shall maintain an IT security concept using the latest available systems, to consist of technical and organisational measures. This shall include in particular appropriate measures to prevent unauthorised third party access to the Software.

The customer must immediately report to WEISS any defects detected. Notifications of defects must include information on the nature of the fault, in the case of software the module in which the fault occurred, and the operations undertaken when the fault occurred. A prerequisite for supplementary performance in accordance with Section 5 is the reproducibility or detectability of the reported defect.

5. Material defects and defects of title
WEISS provides the customer with deliveries and services free of material defects and defects of title. The customer is aware that minor software bugs that do not restrict the usability of the software or which limit its use only to a negligible degree cannot be fully eliminated in software products. Bugs of this nature do not constitute software defects in terms of the warranty. In the case of software, moreover, functional impairments resulting from the hardware and software environment provided by the customer, incorrect operation, defective external data, malfunctions of computer networks or other causes originating from the area of risk of the customer are not considered defects.

WEISS shall not be responsible for software modified unlawfully by the customer, unless the customer can prove that the modification is not the cause of the reported fault. If products or services provided by WEISS are faulty and a corresponding complaint has been made in writing and in good time by the customer, WEISS shall provide replacements or rectify any issues at its discretion. WEISS is to be given the chance to do so within a reasonable time frame of at least 14 working days. In the case of software, rectification in particular may take the course of providing a new program version, or WEISS indicating reasonable methods to circumvent the effects of the fault. The customer must accept the provision of a new program version including if associated with acceptable outlay for adaptation.

Rectification in the case of defects of title occurs by WEISS providing the customer with the means to use the software legally. WEISS in this regard may replace the software product for one of equal value and which complies with contractual provisions, if acceptable to the customer. Should third parties claim against the customer on the basis of property rights, the customer must notify WEISS of this in writing immediately. WEISS shall at its discretion and in consultation with the customer defend against or settle such claims. The customer must not acknowledge third party claims or settle these amicably. WEISS shall defend against third party claims at its own expense and shall indemnify the customer against all necessary costs and losses associated with defending against such action, provided such is not due to conduct on the part of the customer in breach of the terms and conditions. If attempts at rectification fail, the customer shall be allowed to reduce the fee payable or withdraw from the contract. Withdrawal, however, is permissible only if the customer previously and explicitly threatens WEISS with this in writing with a suitable further deadline.

6. Compensation for damages
Unless otherwise stated in the following regulations, WEISS shall be liable in accordance with statutory provisions in the case of the breach of contractual and non-contractual obligations. WEISS shall be liable for compensation for damages - irrespective of the legal basis - in the context of fault liability in cases of intent and gross negligence. In the case of simple negligence, WEISS shall be liable in accordance with statutory provisions subject to a more moderate standard of liability (e.g. for diligence in own affairs) only

a) for losses resulting from loss of life, physical injury or damage to health,

b) for losses resulting from a significant breach of a material contractual obligation (an obligation the fulfilment of which is essential to the proper execution of the contract and which the contractual partner regularly expects and should expect to be complied with); in such cases, however, liability shall be limited to the compensation of predictable, typically occurring losses.

The liability limitations indicated above shall also apply to breaches of duty by or benefiting persons whose culpability WEISS is responsible for in accordance with statutory provisions. The limitations shall not apply if WEISS fraudulently conceals a defect or has assumed a quality guarantee, or to claims of the customer under the Product Liability Act [Produkthaftungsgesetz]. Statements on the properties of the Software are to be viewed as descriptive of performance and do not constitute a quality or durability guarantee as defined by Art. 443 of the German Civil Code [BGB - Bürgerliches Gesetzbuch].

In the case of data loss, WEISS shall be liable only for losses that would still have occurred had the customer properly backed up data (Section 4).

7. Liability of customer and extraordinary termination
The customer shall be liable to WEISS for all losses incurred by WEISS from the violation of copyright provisions in Section 3.

WEISS shall be entitled to revoke the usage rights granted to the customer if the customer repeatedly exceeds the usage rights granted under Section 3 despite a warning from WEISS or fails to take suitable IT security precautions using the latest systems as defined by Section 4. In this case, the customer shall be obligated to immediately cease use of the original software along with any copies and to destroy these. The customer must send a written confirmation of destruction to the address specified below.

8. Place of jurisdiction and choice of law
The law of the Federal Republic of Germany to the exclusion of the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) applies to all legal relationships between WEISS and the customer based on these terms and conditions.

The parties are aware that the software may be subject to export and import restrictions. In particular, authorisation requirements may exist or usage of the software or associated technologies may be subject to restrictions outside of Germany. The customer is required to adhere to applicable export and import control provisions of the Federal Republic of Germany, the European Union and the USA, and all other relevant regulations. Fulfilment of the contract by the Licensor is subject to the proviso that fulfilment is not impeded by national and international regulations of export and import law or by any other legal provisions.

If the customer is a merchant, public-law special fund or a legal entity under public law, the exclusive place of jurisdiction for all claims resulting from the aforementioned legal relationships shall be the registered office of WEISS; where legal action is taken by WEISS, the general place of jurisdiction of the customer shall also apply.

Release Notes

Weiss IoT Gateway 1.1.0 Release Notes

These Release Notes describe what is the content and the purpose of the Weiss IoT Gateway, following named Weiss IoT Gateway.

This is the second stable version released for production.

System requirements for the Weiss IoT Gateway installation Software:
Installed and running Simpati 2016 or later is required.

Built for .NET Core 3.1 LTS. The framework is also included in the installed package.

Hardware:
Can be found in the operating instructions Weiss IoT Gateway and Simpati 4.70 and in the download area for our software under: 

www.weiss-technik.com/software

Compatible products
The Weiss IoT Gateway collects data from Simpati using the SimServ protocol. Compatible to simserv.exe 1.4. Simserv.exe is installed during the setup process of Weiss IoT Gateway. Simserv.exe 1.4 requires .NET Framework 4.7.2 or later.

Weiss IoT Gateway
Introduction

The Software comes as a Windows service that launches an ASP.NET Core web application. Includes a browser-based application that provides a dashboard and tools for monitoring and diagnostics.

The Browser-based app provides a way to login to Simpati Online and register the application. Once registered, the application publishes data to Azure IoT Hub on a periodic basis.

Data Transmission
The data that is transmitted to the cloud includes: Simpati metadata, chamber metadata, chamber profiles, chamber mode and state, chamber errors and other notifications, chamber telemetry (profile values and limits).

The Weiss IoT Gateway checks every second for errors, notifications, or mode and state changes and publishes the change if detected. This includes both the coming and going of errors. The Software schedules the publishing of telemetry data in an interval that is taken from the "archiving rate" setting in "chamber configuration" dialog in Simpati.
Every 5 seconds runs a check, whether that setting has changed.
The connect and disconnect state and metadata are published as soon as a change has been detected in their value.

Message Queuing
If the connection is lost to IoT Hub then the messages will be queued in memory. When connection is retained and considered stable, the messages in the queue will be sent first before new messages are processed. This queue will periodically be stored to disk so that no messages are lost. Depending on the size of the queue it is subdivided into segments, each of which is swapped between memory and disk on demand. The queue is signed with a checksum against manipulation.

The Weiss IoT Gateway will not publish chamber-related data while the chamber is offline. This applies to all chambers while Simpati is offline.

Device Identification
The Chambers are identified by their internal serial number. If a chamber or controller does not transmit any serial number or transmits an invalid serial number, then Weiss IoT Gateway will generate and use a fallback serial number.
The Weiss IoT Gateway is identified by a Simpati serial number plus a unique ID. The unique ID is generated per installed instance of the Weiss IoT Gateway.

Error Handling
Errors related to the application itself (e.g. communication, registration etc.) are displayed on the dashboard in the web app and removed from the dashboard once they are solved.

This software supports different levels and categories of logging. The logging can be configured to log selected concerns in selected verbosity level. One log file is created per day. The log files are removed after a configured amount of days (default value: 14 days).

Health Monitoring
The health of the application like

  • memory consumption,
  • free disk space,
  • data traffic,
  • message queue size,
  • operation of services,

is constantly monitored and presented in the web app.

A bug reporter feature is included in the Weiss Iot Gateway where a ZIP file can be downloaded with recent logs and information about the chamber status and application health.

Cloud Protocol
Also the user can download a ZIP file which contains a set of CSV files with every single message that was delivered from IoT Gateway to Simpati Online on the cloud. These CSV files are constantly written to the local disk as soon as a message becomes successfully delivered. The retention time of these files can be adjusted between 1 and 30 days in the Configuration section. Writing of these files can also be turned off completely. There is one file per day and each of them is protected with a checksum.

Halting Operation
The operation of Weiss IoT Gateway can be stopped in the Configuration section. In the stopped state the Windows service continues to operate (so that the web application stays alive) but no data is collected from the devices and no data is sent to the cloud either. The operation of Weiss IoT Gateway can be resumed anytime again.

Gateway Recovery
When an instance of Weiss IoT Gateway must be moved to a different computer or must be installed again after a failure of the operating system or hard drive then the identity of the previous installation can be recovered. To do so the user must choose an “installation ID” that identifies the installation of IoT Gateway. The “installation ID” will be stored on the cloud. After recovery the access details to the cloud platform are restored and encrypted on the local computer. They cannot be copied to another computer without forcing the tenant admin to approve the gateway installation again.

Miscellaneous

  • Supports different deployment stages (development, preview, integration and production)
  • The name of the deployment stage and tenant is displayed in the Device Status section.
  • Supports configuration of SimServ connection settings and proxy settings.
  • Supports all chamber icons of Simpati 4.80
  • The Simpati chamber index is now transmitted to the cloud.

List of bugs fixed/corrected with this version

  • Helpful message when gateway registration fails: If an exception occurs during gateway registration (a typical reason for that would be if access to URL to Weiss API is blocked by a firewall) a helpful error message is displayed. A link to the target URL is displayed so the user can check if the URL is accessible. If it's not accessible, then there is a problem in the customer's network.
  • Prevent devices without metadata: When a device was not connected to Simpati while registering it to Simpati Online then its metadata was not sent. As a result, the device appeared without name and profiles in Simpati Online. As a fix, devices are not registered in Simpati Online until they are actually connected to Simpati. Once registered they will stay registered even if connection breaks down temporarily.
  • Display "Starting" on application startup: When application starts the home dashboard shows "Starting" instead of "OK" as long as the startup procedure is ongoing.
  • Quicker recovery after connection loss: Connection is detected as stable if 10 messages are successfully sent or 2 minutes (now instead of 10) have passed after one successful message.
  • Check for redundant token response: When service on backend returns the same token response one after the other then only the first of them is processed.
  • Ignore chamber errors while device not registered: When a new device is discovered do not check for chamber errors as long as it has not been registered on the cloud.
  • Do not send data to cloud before Simpati is completely initialized: Wait 20 seconds after Simserv has reconnected because Simpati might need time to connect to its devices and complete its initialization.
  • False detection of profile changes: Unnecessary profile change messages were sent whenever a warn or alarm limit changed (this affected all programs with a tolerance band).
  • Connection loss after ObjectDisposedException: Due to a synchronization issue it could happen that an ObjectDisposedException was thrown which stopped sending messages for a device.
  • Security improvements in login process: Verify if logged in user has got Tenantadmin role. Also verify that user cannot retain login by using the browser's back button.

The law of the Federal Republic of Germany to the exclusion of the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) applies to all legal relationships between WEISS and the customer based on these terms and conditions.

The parties are aware that the software may be subject to export and import restrictions. In particular, authorisation requirements may exist or usage of the software or associated technologies may be subject to restrictions outside of Germany. The customer is required to adhere to applicable export and import control provisions of the Federal Republic of Germany, the European Union and the USA, and all other relevant regulations. Fulfilment of the contract by the Licensor is subject to the proviso that fulfilment is not impeded by national and international regulations of export and import law or by any other legal provisions.

If the customer is a merchant, public-law special fund or a legal entity under public law, the exclusive place of jurisdiction for all claims resulting from the aforementioned legal relationships shall be the registered office of WEISS; where legal action is taken by WEISS, the general place of jurisdiction of the customer shall also apply.
