2.3. DIBS shall also provide the Service with care and in accordance with good industry practice. DIBS must take reasonable measures to ensure that the Service is compatible with recognised operating systems on the market. However, DIBS does not guarantee that the Service is compatible or can be integrated with the Customer’s IT system.
3 SUPPORT, ETC.
3.1. DIBS provides support for the individual products and services that form part of the Service by e-mail. The Customer is entitled to additional support where this is stated in Section C or arranged by separate agreement.

4.2. Updated versions of elements of the Service will be made available to the Customer by DIBS.
5 SERVICE AVAILABILITY
5.1. DIBS aims for the Service to be available for the Customer around the clock, 365 days a year. The agreed availability for the Service is 99.5 %, measured retrospectively over a calendar quarter.
5.2. Service Availability (as a percentage) is calculated using the following formula:
- ”AT” is the agreed availability,
- ”TA” represents permitted interruptions in time, cf. point 5.4, and
- ”AB” represents other interruptions in time, but does not include interruptions for which DIBS is not responsible as per this Agreement.
5.3. The Service is regarded as available to the extent to which a response can be obtained from the DIBS gateway. The DIBS administration module, which can be accessed via the DIBS website, is not included in the calculation of availability, cf. point 5.2, unless the Customer’s contract is of the ‘DIBS Post og Telefon’ type, cf. Section C. DIBS aims for the administration module to have the same availability as the Service in general.
5.4. DIBS reserves the right to close the Service temporarily for maintenance, updates, upgrades or other servicing measures. Such interruptions will be considered Permitted Interruptions. The Customer will be notified, where practically possible, a minimum of three (3) days prior to Permitted Interruptions, which are aimed to be scheduled outside the Service’s peak hours.
5.5. DIBS is not responsible for interruptions or a lack of availability if this is due to circumstances for which DIBS is not responsible. Such circumstances will be considered to include: errors and/or viruses in the Customer’s or any third party equipment, software, communication tools and/or its IT environment in general; conditions resulting from the nature of the Internet or its procedures; force majeure, cf. point 9.5; the Customer’s use of the Service in violation of this Agreement; other circumstances for which the Customer or a third party is responsible, including interruptions to the Internet.
5.6. If the calculated availability, cf. point 5.2, in one calendar quarter is lower than the agreed availability, cf. point 5.1, the Customer is entitled to a rebate on the Subscription paid by the Customer for the calendar quarter in question, at a rate of 2 % of the Subscription for each percentage point the calculated availability is below the agreed availability. However, any such rebate may not exceed 50 % of the Subscription for that quarter.
5.7. In order not to lose the right to a rebate as per point 5.6, the Customer must present DIBS with a written claim for a rebate within one (1) month of the end of the calendar quarter in question.
5.8. DIBS is entitled to offset any rebate on the Subscription against the next Subscription invoice for the Customer.
5.9. This point 5, including point 5.6 in particular, exhaustively regulates the Customer’s rights and privileges, and DIBS’s liability in the event of the Service’s reduced availability. The Customer is not entitled to any other or further repayment, remuneration, rebate or compensation on these grounds. If DIBS is obliged to pay the Customer the maximum rebate for one calendar quarter, cf. point 5.6 and point 5.7, this will be considered a material breach of the Agreement, which may result in termination, cf. point 14.5.
6 SECURITY, ETC.
6.1. DIBS is obliged to comply with the current applicable demands from payment acquirers, including demands for security procedures.
6.2. Furthermore, DIBS is responsible for ensuring that credit card numbers and codes are handled in a secure manner in accordance with the requirements set out in the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).
6.3. DIBS makes daily backups of the data stored in the Service. The backed-up data/information is only stored to the extent the information is required for completing payment transactions and reversal in the event of operational disruption at DIBS. DIBS is responsible for ensuring that Customer Data, which means all data that the Customer sends to and/or via DIBS’s System when using the Service stored at DIBS, is kept for at least 12 months from receipt of the information by DIBS’s System.
6.4. DIBS shall handle all Customer Data in accordance with the terms in point 10, although DIBS is always permitted to disclose Customer Data at the request of acquirers, banks, the police or other authorities. In the event of any such request, DIBS will notify the Customer wherever possible.
6.5. The Customer is responsible for obtaining the approval of individual card acquirers or in connection with other forms of payment. DIBS may require the Customer to document relevant approvals at any time.
6.6. In the event that the Customer becomes aware of card numbers, the Customer is obliged to comply with the relevant PCI DSS requirements. Furthermore, the Customer must comply at all times with the rules and procedures developed by banks in accordance with which DIBS carries out payment transactions. The Customer is responsible for ensuring that sensitive information, such as login information, passwords and the like, are handled in a secure manner, including keeping such information confidential.
6.7. The Customer is not entitled to carry out security tests, analyses or evaluations, or other assessments of DIBS’s System, without the prior written consent of DIBS.
7 ERROR CORRECTION
7.1. If the Service’s function differs from what has been agreed, cf. point 2.2, this constitutes a Fault.
7.2. DIBS is obliged, within a reasonable time from having been informed by the Customer of any Fault, to begin remedying any such Fault so that the Service fulfils the agreed function.
7.3. The Customer must, when informing DIBS of any Fault, provide DIBS with all relevant information on the perceived Fault and the circumstances of this, as far as possible. In connection with DIBS’s error correction, the Customer must also, to a reasonable extent, be available to answer DIBS’s questions and assist in testing of DIBS’s error correction.
7.4. If rectification of a Fault is not practically possible for DIBS, if it cannot be remedied by use of reasonable measures, or if DIBS cannot remedy the Fault within a reasonable time, the Customer, provided it has complied with point 7.3, is entitled to a rebate on the subscription equivalent to the reduced function of the Service. Any rebate on the Subscription relates only to the period from the point the Customer informed DIBS of the Fault until the point DIBS has remedied it, and cannot exceed 50 % of the Subscription for that period.
7.5. In order not to lose the right to a rebate, the Customer must present DIBS with a written claim to that effect within one (1) month of the point when the Customer became aware that the Fault would not be remedied, cf. point 7.4.

7.7. DIBS is not responsible for or obliged to perform error correction, and the Customer is not entitled to a rebate on the Subscription, in the event of Faults or other deviations in the Service’s function that are irrelevant to the Service’s intended application, which only cause negligible inconvenience to the Customer, or are caused by:
i. the Customer’s use of the Service in connection with equipment, software or accessories other than those recommended or approved by DIBS,
ii. the Customer’s modifications or alterations to the Service or other software without DIBS’s prior written approval,
iii. external attacks, including viruses, or other circumstances beyond the control of DIBS, such as faults or deficiencies in equipment/accessories or software which are not included in the Service or part of DIBS’s System,
iv. force majeure, cf. point 9.5.
7.8. This point 7, including point 7.4 in particular, exhaustively regulates the Customer’s rights and privileges, and DIBS’s liability in the event of Faults in the Service.

If DIBS, cf. point 7.4 and point 7.5, is obliged to pay the Customer the maximum rebate on the Subscription for a period of one month or more, this will be considered a material breach of the Agreement, which may result in termination, cf. point 14.5.
