    1. the operator is entitled to change these general terms and conditions, as far as essential regulations of the contractual relationship remain unaffected, the change is necessary for the adaptation to developments, which were not foreseeable at contract conclusion and whose disregard would noticeably disturb the balance of the contractual relationship.

The operator is entitled to limit the scope of the content to be provided by a member by changing the subject matter of the service.
    3. The Operator is entitled to increase the agreed remuneration if this is done in order to pass on increased costs to the Member. The right to price adjustment covers in particular the case that third parties from whom the operator obtains the necessary advance services for the provision of the services owed under this contract increase their prices. Furthermore, the operator is entitled to adjust the prices accordingly in the event of an increase in value-added tax.
    4. according to art. 15.1 to 15.3 intended changes of the general terms and conditions, the object of performance as well as the subscription remuneration will be communicated to the member at least one month before they become effective by e-mail to the e-mail address indicated by the member. The member has a special right of termination at the time the changes take effect. If the member does not cancel in writing within one month of receipt of the notification of change, the changes shall become an integral part of the contract at the time the changes take effect. The member shall be specifically informed of this consequence in the notification of change.
  16. FINAL PROVISIONS
