The user can start the customer transformation process via the C-iD platform. The user has the choice between the possibilities (licenses) that C-iD offers at that moment. The user must closely follow the various steps that the process imposes.

A number of services and functionalities are assigned to each user by default. Other services and functionalities depend on the user group to which the user and/or the (legal) person in whose name and on whose behalf the user acts, or on compliance with additional conditions. Still others must be activated separately by the user.
The user acknowledges that even before the conclusion of the agreement, he has received all the documents that constitute the agreement and all information about the characteristics and functions of the additional services and functionalities offered in C-iD, so that he can check whether or not he wants to use the application and that he can only use the additional services under the conditions stipulated in the agreement.
In order to improve the ease of use and the experience of the C-iD user, the user is forwarded to the C-iD environment and platform in the sales processes. There, the user can select a usage license from a customer formula.
With C-iD, the user can, if necessary (also) in the name and on behalf of the (legal) person for whom he acts, also subscribe to agreements with an affiliated company of C-iD or with third parties.
In that case, C-iD only serves as a platform for the conclusion of that agreement. In that case, the user does not enter into a contract with C-iD but with that affiliated company or with the third party, which must comply with all applicable laws and regulations. C-iD does not act as an intermediary and does not mediate between the user and those other entities or those third parties. These agreements are subject to their own terms and conditions.
The liability of C-iD towards the user as a result of a shortcoming of C-iD can under no circumstances give rise to compensation for indirect damage of a financial, commercial or other nature.
C-iD cannot be held liable for direct or indirect damage that could result for the user from a total or partial disruption of its services due to force majeure.
