- any Customer who orders the PRISMA API Service (hereinafter referred to as “Customer”).
- The provisions of the Platform Usage Contract shall apply mutatis mutandis for the use of the PRISMA API Service unless these Terms and Conditions provide otherwise.
Article 2: Definitions
Each capitalized term within these Terms and Conditions shall have the meaning provided below:

- “Text Form” means a readable declaration, in which the person making the declaration is named. The Text Form must be made on durable medium. A durable medium is any medium that enables the recipient to retain or store a declaration included on the medium that is addressed to him personally such that it is accessible to him for a period of time adequate to its purpose, and that allows the unchanged reproduction of such declaration; e.g. declarations via email and fax.

- PRISMA offers its API Service within different packages, which comprise a different level of services and access via REST API related to confirmations, reporting data and transactions of the PRISMA platform.

Article 5: Token
A valid token will be created upon confirmation of the ordering process by the Customer. This token must be used to authenticate against the PRISMA API. The token may be newly generated at any time. The Customer is obliged to treat the respective valid token strictly confidential to avoid any abusive behaviour.
Article 6: Fees
- For the provision of the ordered PRISMA API Service package, the Customer shall pay a yearly fee as displayed and confirmed for the respective API Service package. Subscriptions made during the year will be charged on a monthly pro-rata basis for the remainder of the relevant calendar year.

- The fees mentioned in these Terms and Conditions are net sums in Euro and are subject to applicable taxes.
Article 7: Terms of payment
- The fees shall be paid via SEPA business to business direct debit scheme on an inter-bank level. For this purpose, the Customer must provide a SEPA mandate form as part of the ordering process. With this mandate form, the Customer authorises (i) PRISMA to send instructions to the Customer’s bank to debit the Customer’s account and (ii) the Customer’s bank to debit Customer’s account accordingly. This mandate is intended for business-to-business transactions only.
- The Customer will receive a pre-notification fourteen (14) days prior to the debit from the Customer’s account. The Customer must ensure sufficient funds are available in their account.
- Costs incurred due to non-payment or rebooking of a direct debit shall be borne by the Customer if the non-payment or rebooking was caused by the Customer.
- The SEPA mandate may be revoked by the Customer by sending a corresponding declaration in Text Form to PRISMA, with the result that subsequent payment transactions will no longer be authorised.
