Terms & Conditions

These terms and conditions of registration and use for IC-1 Lift Plan (hereinafter referred to as the “T&C”), dated 9/4/2019, apply to the usage, by the customers and users (hereinafter referred to as the “USER”), of the online application for preparing lift plans provided by Tadano GmbH, Europaallee 2, 66482 Zweibrücken, Germany (hereinafter referred to as “Tadano”), as well as to the registration of the customers and users that is required for the usage. The USER and Tadano are hereinafter referred to individually as the “PARTY” and jointly as the “PARTIES”.

1.1. IC-1 Lift Plan – General Description
With its online IC-1 Lift Plan application, Tadano enables the USER to generate general lift plans for the Tadano crane models that are available on the online IC-1 Lift Plan application. Within this context, the term “lift plan” refers to information that makes it possible to determine which loads the previously selected Tadano crane model will be able to lift, turn, and lower, as well as the radiuses at which it will be able to do so.
1.2. Registration
The use of the IC-1 Lift Plan requires the USER to register first. The registration shall be subject to approval and confirmation by Tadano . When registering, the USER shall provide truthful and accurate information as required by the registration process. This information includes, but is not limited to: first name, last name, street address, city, state, country, e-mail, telephone number, and the USER’s position in the company. After registering successfully, the USER will be able to set up their account. The user must fill out the registration application in its entirety. Registration applications with missing, incorrect, or incomplete personal information shall not give the user the right to use the IC-1 Lift Plan; if the user submits an unacceptable registration application as outlined in this description, Tadano will not allow access to the application or will revoke access, if applicable.
1.3. Technical Requirements
In order to register for and use the IC-1 Lift Plan, the USER must have a working internet data connection (e.g., DSL, cable, etc.). The USER is responsible for ensuring that they have sufficiently powerful and up-to-date hardware and software, as well as safe and up-to-date antivirus protection.
1.3.1. Once the USER registers online as required and sets up a corresponding account, they will be able to select a Tadano crane model and proceed to enter the specifications available on the Lift Plan interface in order to calculate a lift plan. The application will then use these specifications to generate an appropriate lift plan for the selected crane. Every lift plan can be printed out and/or saved.
1.3.2. The use of the IC-1 Lift Plan shall be limited to the registered USER. It is hereby expressly prohibited to disclose login data to third parties or to allow third parties to use the IC-1 Lift Plan. To access the IC-1 Lift Plan, the user will have to use the login data assigned with it together with remote data transmission.

2.1. Crane Data and Specifications
All crane data and specifications disclosed to the USER by Tadano shall be treated confidentially by the USER and shall not be disclosed to any third parties. Furthermore, the data and specifications shall not be used for commercial purposes. The IC-1 Lift Plan may be used for technical purposes only. Any misuse or action contrary to public policy is hereby expressly prohibited. It is especially prohibited to technically modify, tamper with, or negatively affect the IC-1 Lift Plan. The USER hereby agrees to notify Tadano immediately if the USER becomes aware of, is made aware of, or is suspicious of the data and specifications disclosed to them being misused. Tadano reserves the right to block access to the IC-1 Lift Plan in case of misuse. The USER shall be liable for any misuse for which they are responsible.
2.2. IC-1 Lift Plan Results
All lift plan results are provided as general results only, meaning that they will only take into account the equipment that comes as standard with the Tadano crane model selected by the USER and will not account for any custom configurations featured by the USER’s Tadano crane model. Furthermore, all calculations are made assuming an ideal environment (solid ground, calm winds, etc.) and standard weight specifications (balanced, no one-sided loads, etc.), meaning that the results provided by the application may deviate from the actual circumstances involved. The USER shall be the sole party responsible for taking this into account. The use of the IC-1 Lift Plan and the corresponding lift plans shall not release users or operators from the obligation to closely follow all of the operating instructions and other warnings and the instructions for Tadano cranes. The IC-1 Lift Plan is not suitable for preparing statistics or for other applications that require measurement data that is exact, accurate, reliable, of verified quality, and up-to-date, and that is available continuously and without interruption. Due to technical reasons, the IC-1 Lift Plan is not suitable for providing third parties with proof of the loads that the previously selected Tadano crane model will be able to lift, turn, and lower, or of the radiuses at which it will be able to do so, in its actual environment and with regard to the actual application at hand.
2.3. Warranty/Liability
2.3.1. The use of the IC-1 Lift Plan and the generation of lift plan results shall in no way be construed as Tadano guaranteeing, making representations or warranties for, or otherwise making any binding statements concerning the Lift Plan, the results generated with it, and whether the use of the Tadano crane model planned by the USER is actually feasible under the conditions specified by the USER. The USER shall be the sole party responsible for the use of their Tadano crane model.
2.3.2. Tadano assumes no liability, nor makes any warranties or representations, for the results provided by the IC-1 Lift Plan. Tadano assumes no liability for indirect or consequential damages associated with the use of the IC-1 Lift Plan, regardless of whether in relation to the USER or third parties. Tadano assumes no liability for the availability and proper functioning of the IC-1 Lift Plan webpage, including any damages that may occur as a result of transmission errors, delays, or interruption; data problems or loss; viruses; or any other issues with the use of the IC-1 Lift Plan unless the damages are the result of intent or gross negligence on behalf of Tadano. This notwithstanding, maintenance, problems with the USER’s access requirements, and force majeure events, such as power outages, may result in the IC-1 Lift Plan not being available. Liability for damages in case of death or bodily injury resulting from intent or gross negligence on behalf of Tadano shall remain unaffected by the aforementioned provisions.

Tadano GmbH assumes no liability nor makes any warranties or representations for the calculations and will take no responsibility for any damage associated with the use of this software. The User must always confirm that the lifted load and the actual crane configuration are approved by the applicable load chart provided by the crane manufacturer and carefully follow the crane manufacturer´s operating instructions. In addition, the accuracy of the load and outrigger pressure calculation is entirely dependent upon the user inputting proper data/information. If inaccurate data is input, the load and outrigger pressure calculations will not be accurate. Design of ground support sufficient to withstand calculated loads is within the sole responsibility of the user of this software and/or the Site Supervisor (see ASME B30.5-2007 5- Reliance upon inaccurate calculations and/or improper ground support could lead to tip over (and potentially result in death, serious bodily injury, damage to the crane and/or damage to other property).
