2. Provision of the Ordering App
Cerve has developed a business to business cloud-based platform that facilitates, simplifies and unifies online purchasing between wholesalers and buyers (the “Platform”).
For a Buyer to be able to place orders with a wholesaler, Buyer needs access to the Ordering App through a Buyer Account. We will provide and allow the Buyer access to the Ordering App in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Agreement.
This Agreement does not grant you any rights to Intellectual Property and Intellectual Assets in or to the Ordering App, any of its components, or our Platform, other than a limited right to use the Ordering App and Buyer Account under the terms of this Agreement.
During the term of the Agreement, we undertake to provide and allow the Buyer and its Users access to the Ordering App at the Access Point.
While the Ordering App facilitates orders and communication between wholesalers and buyers Cerve has no control over and makes no warranties in relation to any wholesaler, Wholesaler Products or any information available to Buyer in a wholesaler’s store in the Ordering App, such as information on prices, delivery slots, methods and wholesaler terms.
Cerve is not a contracting party to any of the orders made between a wholesaler and buyer though the Ordering App and shall thus be considered a third-party supplier in the legal relationship between a wholesaler and the Buyer.
The Service Provider will not charge the Buyer for use of the Buyer Account so long as the Buyer acts in accordance with the terms of the Agreement.
We may immediately deny Buyer or a User access, permanently or temporarily, to the Ordering App or terminate the Agreement, at any time and for any reason.
The Ordering App is provided “as is” and “as available” and we make no warranties in relation hereto if not specifically expressed in this Agreement. Consequently, we do not warrant that the access to and use of the Ordering App will be uninterrupted or error free nor does it make any warranty as to the results that may be obtained from using it.
We will make commercially reasonable efforts to provide continuous access to the Ordering App. We may carry out planned measures that affect the availability of the Ordering App, which is required for technical, maintenance, operational, safety reasons, or other reasons.
The Buyer’s or Users’ access to the Ordering App may also be suspended temporarily for the duration of any unscheduled downtime or unavailability for any reason outside our control, including because of power outages, system or Internet failures, or if it is necessary in order to comply with international and national laws and regulations.
The Buyer is not entitled to compensation resulting from such limitation or lack of access as described in this Section 2.3.
2.4 Registration of Buyer Account

A Buyer Account is to be associated with a valid email address and account credentials. The individual registering the Buyer Account on behalf of Buyer must be at least 18 years old.
The Buyer may not register more than one (1) Buyer Account without our approval. Once a Buyer Account has been registered, you may authorize additional Users to use the Buyer Account on behalf of you and using the same login credentials. This is done by registering them as Users within the Buyer Account. An individual User may also be registered as a “User” with several buyers, if authorized by such buyers.
