Furthermore, Retailers may register themselves as customers with the Provider. These General Terms and Conditions govern the relationship between the provider and the partner as well as between the provider and the customer.

If the customer uses anybill via one of the provider's partners, the partner's General Terms and Conditions may also apply in addition to these General Terms and Conditions, which may result in deviations. 

1.3 Changes 

The provider is entitled to make changes to the service description or the general terms and conditions and other conditions. The provider shall only make these changes for valid reasons, in particular due to new technical developments, changes in case law or other equivalent reasons. If individual provisions place the partner or customer in a worse position in such a case, the provider shall grant the partner or customer an extraordinary special right of termination of the contract which is not bound to any period of notice. If the contractual balance between the parties is significantly disturbed by the amendment, the amendment shall not be made.
