Placement of an advertisement is limited to the form offered in each case (format, fields, text volume, etc.). Garage advertisements are published in the REVO GARAGE garage app. In addition, the advertisements may also appear on the websites of REVO GARAGE's cooperation partners.
REVO GARAGE cannot guarantee that the advertisements published on its platform will not also be copied, linked and/or additionally published by other Internet providers with the help of frames, disguised as its own offer, although REVO GARAGE will make every effort to prevent any copying, linking or framing described above within the scope of what is technically and legally possible.

7. compensation scheme
Garages that have a written contract with REVO GARAGE must compensate REVO GARAGE as follows:
7.1 Commission per vehicle sale
The Garage owes REVO GARAGE a variable commission for each sale of the Vehicle made through REVO GARAGE. The amount of the commission depends on the strength of the price increase that the vehicle performs on the REVO GARAGE platform.
REVO GARAGE's right to commission arises at the moment of the termination of the auction of a vehicle, when the Dealer purchases the vehicle from a Garage, which was advertised and auctioned via the REVO GRAGE platform.
Commissions are also due if Vehicle purchase contracts are signed only after (ordinary or early) termination of the Contract of REVO GARAGE with the Garages, but the conditions of clause 7.1 paragraph 2 are fulfilled.
7.2 Annual Base Price
The Garage shall owe REVO GARAGE a Base Price at the moment of signing the separate Contract Document, as well as each time at the moment of automatic renewal of the Contract. The amount of the Base Price shall be defined in the Contract Document with REVO GARAGE to be signed by Garages.
Accordingly, in addition to the Base Prices, the Garage shall pay commissions to REVO GARAGE only if a Vehicle has been sold on REVO GARAGE's Auction Platform and has achieved a certain price increase. Moreover, additional costs may arise in case of claiming additional services, such as sending SMS. One SMS costs the Garage 10 centimes.
REVO GARAGE provides the Garages with regular settlements of the owed commissions. All prices are exclusive of taxes (in particular VAT) and fees.
Payment shall be made by means of payment accepted by REVO GARAGE.
In case of late payment of the invoice, the Garages shall be charged interest on arrears and, if a reminder is sent, a reminder fee of CHF 20.00 shall be charged. Finally, the Customer shall reimburse REVO GARAGE for all additional costs arising from the enforcement of REVO GARAGE's claims (in particular reminder and collection fees as well as pre-litigation costs).
The retention of payments as well as the set-off of claims of the Garages against claims of REVO GARAGE shall be excluded, unless REVO GARAGE is insolvent, the counterclaim has a legal connection with the liability of the Garages, has been established by a court or has been acknowledged by REVO GARAGE. The Customer is not entitled to withhold payments due to incomplete total delivery, warranty or guarantee claims or complaints.
REVO GARAGE has the right to adjust the agreed compensation at any time. Any price increase must be notified to the Garages at least 14 days before it comes into effect. From the moment of receiving the notification, the Customer has the right to object to the change within 14 days (objection). In the event of an objection, the contract shall continue at the previous conditions and shall end at the end of the following month. If the customer does not object within the deadline, the compensation adjustment shall be deemed accepted.
8. other obligations of the garages
Garages are responsible for the complete and correct content of their advertisements when entering them themselves and must upload any image material in perfect condition. REVO GARAGE does not take any responsibility for the correctness of submitted advertisements or changes. Damages caused by late, incomplete transmission or unsuitable means of advertisement shall be borne exclusively by the Garages.
Garages are solely responsible for the content, in particular its correctness, up-to-dateness and legal admissibility of their advertisements (text and image material). Garages undertake to observe the applicable laws and the rights of third parties. REVO GARAGE is entitled, but not obliged, to check Advertisements for their legal admissibility, such as, in particular, for the impairment of third party rights.
From the activation of the Advertisement and until the expiry of the booked term, Garages are responsible for the maintenance of the Advertisement (for example, the deactivation of outdated Advertisements).
The Garage shall indemnify and hold REVO GARAGE harmless from and against any claims of third parties that may be asserted against REVO GARAGE on the basis of the contents of the Advertisement or its actions on the Vehicle Platform. This also applies to the costs of legal representation.
The Customer is obliged to keep his username, password and all data that allow unauthorized access to his user account secret and to protect them from unauthorized access by third parties. REVO GARAGE does not take any responsibility for unauthorized or improper use of the username or password of the Garages.
The Garage is also liable for third parties who use services of REVO GARAGE through his account. The Garage is obliged to immediately report to REVO GARAGE any unauthorized or improper use of its username or password. REVO GARAGE is entitled to keep logs of IP addresses.
The Garage undertakes not to misuse the information and data available through REVO GARAGE. Misuse is understood in particular as the use of the available information and data for commercial purposes within Switzerland, which are similar to the services offered by REVO GARAGE.
9. premature deactivation of the advertisement by the garage
The garage can no longer cancel the auction after a vehicle has been published. Once a vehicle is advertised, it cannot be removed from the BID module. By publishing the vehicle, the garage commits to sell the vehicle through the REVO GARAGE platform.
10. online purchase
10.1 General and conclusion of the contract
REVO GARAGE offers the Garages to offer their Vehicles on the platform of REVO GARAGE via the button "Publication in the BID module".

Even in case of purchase of a vehicle via the BID option, the purchase contract shall be concluded exclusively between the Advertiser as a Garage and the prospective Customer as a Dealer. REVO GARAGE is not involved in the purchase contract.

In addition to the provisions of the written purchase agreement, in case of purchase of a vehicle via the online purchase option on the website www.revo-garage.com, the parties to the purchase agreement shall in any case have the following mutual rights and obligations, which shall prevail over any deviating provisions in the purchase agreement or in other agreements of the parties to the purchase agreement:
Rights of the dealer / obligations of the garage:
● The vehicles purchased through REVO GARAGE are ex place and have no warranty. If the purchase contract provides for a longer warranty period in the form of a guarantee, this longer period shall apply. If the purchase contract does not contain a provision on the duration of the warranty, the general legal provisions apply. The scope of the warranty is defined in the purchase contract. If the purchase contract does not contain a provision on the scope of the warranty, the general statutory provisions shall apply.

The right of use also includes, in particular, the right to ward off illegal encroachments on the copyright by third parties within the framework of the publication in the Customer's own name or, if necessary, to assert claims resulting therefrom in court.
