On 1 May 2013, the following changes will enter into force in the annex titled “General terms and conditions for the use of search systems of the Centre of Registers and Information Systems” of the document “Approval of the general terms and conditions for the use of search systems of the Centre of Registers and Information Systems and the website of the Centre of Registers and Information Systems”:
Clause 5.8 will be worded as follows:
“5.8. Upon the development of arrears, the RIK first sends the Client a reminder, which is issued when 14 (fourteen) calendar days have passed from the payment deadline of an invoice with a specified payment deadline of 14 (fourteen) calendar days. If the claim in the reminder is not fulfilled, a debt notice will be sent to the Client with a payment deadline of 14 (fourteen) calendar days. At that same time that the debt notice is sent out, the Client’s access to the search systems will be restricted until the arrears are eliminated (access restriction will be terminated within 3 workdays of the elimination of the arrears). If the claim is not fulfilled by the payment deadline specified in the debt notice, the Client will be sent the debt notice no. 2 for immediate fulfillment. If the claim is not satisfied, the debt notice no. 2 is considered to be a declaration of the termination of the contract and the contract is considered to be terminated by the RIK in 5 (five) calendar days as of the issuance of debt notice no. 2.”
Clause 5 will be amended with sub-clause 5.10 in the following wording:
“5.10. Amounts overpaid by the Client will be calculated as a prepayment for the next invoice. An amount overpaid by the Client, which is less than € 11.50, will be calculated as a prepayment without notifying the Client thereof. If the amount is greater than € 11.50, the RIK will notify the Client latest by the last day of the corresponding quarter pursuant to the procedure prescribed in clause 9.2. If the Client wishes to have the overpaid amount refunded, the RIK will refund the overpaid amount to the bank account specified by the Client. Upon the termination of a contract, the RIK will refund the overpaid amount to the Client.”
Change regarding sub-clause 5.8 means that from May 1st 2013 in case of elimination of the arrears, access restriction to the search systems will be terminated within 3 workdays.
Amended sub-clause 5.10 means that overpaid amounts less than € 11.50 will be automatically calculated as a prepayment. In case of greater amounts RIK will notify the Client. If the Client wishes to have overpaid amount refunded or upon the termination of a contract, RIK will refund the overpaid amount.
