Section 1 - Scope of application and right of amendment

1. PSA.PAGE® GmbH (hereinafter ‘PPE.PAGE’) operates a marketplace (hereinafter also referred to as the ‘Platform’) around the themes of PPE and occupational and industrial safety at the domain PSA.PAGE/PPE.PAGE, alongside a free online forum. Via this Platform, companies can request fee-based services from PPE.PAGE, especially creating job offers, product displays and/or image sites and connecting to the internet, but also sending out newsletters. The General Licence Conditions apply to all contracts between the customer and PPE.PAGE which have the time-limited provision of services on the Platform/market place PPE.PAGE via a telecommunications connection (hereinafter also referred to as: ‘Application’). Deviating, additional or contradictory terms and conditions of the customer which PPE.PAGE does not explicitly recognise shall not be binding for PPE.PAGE, even if PPE.PAGE does not explicitly reject them. The General Licence Conditions shall apply even if PPE.PAGE carries out the customer’s orders in full awareness of the latter’s contradictory or deviating terms and conditions.

2. These General Licence Conditions shall also apply to all future business relationships between PPE.PAGE and the customer or its legal successor which have the time-limited provision by PPE.PAGE of services on the PPE.PAGE Platform via a telecommunications connection, even if they have never been explicitly agreed.

3. PPE.PAGE is authorised to amend these General Licence Conditions at the start of an extension period (cf. Section 14). If PPE.PAGE intends to do this, the customer shall be informed of the changes in writing at least six weeks before they come into effect. The customer shall have a special right of termination on the date when the changes come into effect. If the customer does not terminate the contract in writing within six weeks of receiving the change notification, the changes shall be incorporated into the contract on the date when they come into effect. PPE.PAGE shall explicitly refer the customer to these consequences in the change notification.

Section 2 - Registration and conclusion of contract

1. Users must register on the PPE.PAGE Platform in order to use services on this Platform. Only natural persons of unlimited legal capacity may do this on behalf of their employers. Consumers, minors, and persons of limited or no legal capacity may not register. PPE.PAGE is entitled to reject registration attempts and contractual offers without giving reasons for doing so.

2. By completing and submitting the web form, the customer submits an offer relating to the time-limited use of particular services on the PPE.PAGE marketplace, incorporating these Licence Conditions, as specified in these Conditions.

3. The registration data provided must be complete and accurate. The customer shall receive a confirmation of receipt immediately after registering. PPE.PAGE may accept the customer’s offer within this framework.

4. Each customer may only register once.

5. The customer undertakes to carry out changes to their registration data immediately.

6. The contractual languages are German and English.

7. These Licence Conditions, that is the contractual text, are stored by PPE.PAGE and can be accessed on the Platform at any time.

Section 3 - General object of the contract

1. The object of contracts subject to these General Licence Conditions is the provision of services from the PPE.PAGE Platform and the mediation of corresponding time-limited rights of use.

2. PPE.PAGE offers the temporary use of services from the marketplace via a telecommunications connection including the connection of the content created by use of the services to the internet, limited in time to the term of the contract, for a fee.

Section 4 - Nature and scope of services, provision of services and further development

1. PPE.PAGE shall make the Platform and the contractually agreed services available for the customer’s use from the contractually agreed date on a central data processing system or systems (hereinafter referred to as ‘Server’, even where there are multiple). No applications shall be provided. The handover for PPE.PAGE’s contractual services is rather the router output of the computer centre used by PPE.PAGE, in which the Server on PPE.PAGE provides the marketplace and the services are hosted by the computer centre operator. The customer’s connection to the internet, the maintenance of the network connection and the procurement and provision of the hardware and software required on the customer side is not covered by the contract falling under these General Licence Conditions.

Alongside this, PPE.PAGE allows the customer to access the application documentation associated with the services. Printed application documentation is neither owed, nor is it an object of PPE.PAGE’s services.

2. To this end, PPE.PAGE grants the customer the simple, geographically unlimited right, limited to the relevant term, to use the marketplace in the form of the contractually agreed services for its own operational purposes. We would like to clarify that, where PPE.PAGE provides new versions of and updates or upgrades to the applications during the term of the relevant contract, the aforementioned right of use shall likewise apply to these. The parties agree, however, that - except for troubleshooting purposes - PPE.PAGE shall be entitled to update the services, but shall not be obliged to do this unless otherwise agreed.

The applications are protected by copyright. All further rights to the applications including their copies shall remain with PSA.PAGE, regardless of the statutory minimum rights of use according to Section 69(d) UrhG (Copyright Act). The customer is not permitted to issue sub-licences. The rights correspondingly granted to the customer shall not be transferable without PPE.PAGE’s consent.

3. The functionalities of the PPE.PAGE marketplace are derived exclusively and finally from the functional description issued on conclusion of the contract, and are known to the customer as of this time.

4. Within the framework of any further development of the PPE.PAGE marketplace, partial functions may be changed or eliminated. This shall not have any effect on the existence of the contract in question or its term, as long as the customer’s achievement of the contractual purpose is not put at risk.

5. Unless otherwise agreed, configurations, implementations, parametrisations, instructions, training sessions, adjustments, service and support etc. are not included in the contractual services, nor are other additional services which are not explicitly specified as objects of the services.

Section 5 - Legality of and responsibility for content and right to exemption

1. PPE.PAGE shall not appropriate the content configured by the customer, but rather shall merely provide technical options for creating and transmitting content. In particular, PSA.PAGE shall not check the content for completeness, accuracy, legality, currency, quality or suitability for a particular purpose.

2. The customer is fully responsible for the content it configures. It is itself obliged to comply with the applicable laws and in particular to ensure that its content is legal and that it does not breach any third-party rights. In particular, the customer is prohibited from carrying out the following actions:

- configuring, offering and advertising pornographic content, services and/or products, or content, services and/or products which break youth protection, data protection and/or other legislation, and/or fraudulent content, services and/or products;

- using content which abuses or defames other users or third parties;

- using, providing and distributing content, services and/or products which are legally protected or subject to third-party rights (e.g. copyrights), without being explicitly entitled to do so.

- distributing offensive, indecent, sexual, obscene or defamatory content/communication, or content/communication which is likely to promote or support racism, extremism, hate, physical violence or illegal acts (explicitly or implicitly);

- harassing other users, e.g. by repeated personal contact without or against the other user’s consent, or promoting/supporting such harassment;

The customer is also especially obliged to do the following:

- To design the content it creates according to the legal requirements which apply in the area of its intended distribution, and in particular to observe the corresponding competition, copyright, trademark, patent, name and labelling laws as well as other third-party commercial property rights and rights of personality.

- To ensure that applicable obligations, especially relating to labelling providers, distance selling, electronic commerce and data protection, are fulfilled.

3. The customer shall release PPE.PAGE from all third-party claims arising from violation of their rights by content configured by the customer. It shall also assume the costs of necessary legal defence by PPE.PAGE, including all court and representation costs. This shall not apply if and insofar as the legal violation is not the customer’s fault.

Section 6 - Removal of content and blocking of access

1. PPE.PAGE reserves the right to reject the configuration of content and/or to edit, block or remove content which has already been configured, where the configuration of the content by the customer or the configured content itself is subject to a complaint of illegality and is not obviously legal, or there are specific indications that it is illegal. PPE.PAGE shall, however, take the customer’s legitimate interests into account when doing this, and shall choose the mildest means and give the customer opportunity to take a stance beforehand where possible.

2. In the event of obvious legal violations, PPE.PAGE shall be entitled on request to obtain information regarding the relevant registration data of the customer that configured the content in question on the marketplace.

3. In the event of a serious breach by the customer of its obligations arising from these Licence Conditions, especially from Section 5 above (Legality of and responsibility for content and right to exemption from this condition of use), PPE.PAGE shall be entitled to terminate the contractual relationship for good cause and without complying with a notice period. If the customer is responsible for the breach, PPE.PAGE shall be obliged to compensate it for the resulting loss.

Section 7 - Remuneration, prices and payment terms as well as price adjustments

1. The remuneration for the services to be provided in relation to granting of use shall be derived from the relevant contractual documents. It depends on the booked components.

2. All prices and price details should be understood as exclusive of statutory VAT.

3. Unless otherwise agreed, only the services explicitly specified in the relevant contractual documents are included in the prices. Unless otherwise agreed, configurations, implementations, parametrisations, instructions, training sessions, adjustments, service and support etc. shall be compensated separately, as shall other additional services which are not explicitly specified as objects of the services. Where the customer uses such PPE.PAGE services, these shall be compensated unless otherwise agreed according to the general price list and generally applicable PPE.PAGE hourly rates at the time of commissioning.

4. In order to account for increased personnel and other costs, PPE.PAGE has the right to amend the prices and remuneration for the relevant contractual services. Such a price adjustment shall, however, be permitted twelve months at the earliest after the contract is concluded, and only once a year. PPE.PAGE shall inform the customer in writing of the changes six weeks at the latest before they come into effect. In the event that the customer does not accept the price increase, it shall be entitled to terminate the whole contract with a notice period of one month to the end of the calendar month. In the event of termination, the original prices shall apply until the termination comes into effect.

Section 8 - Cooperation obligations

The customer undertakes to actively support PPE.PAGE to the best of its abilities in providing the services. It undertakes in particular:

1. to inform PPE.PAGE immediately if disruptions arise in the use of the services;

2. to keep access data to the Platform (username, password) confidential and not to make it accessible to third parties; it is responsible for ensuring that the username does not breach third-party rights, especially naming and trademark rights, or violate common decency; the customer is aware that PPE.PAGE will never ask it for passwords;

3. to inform PPE.PAGE immediately should it have reason to believe that its registration is being misused by third parties;

4. to refrain from recording or other access to other customers’ content using automated mechanisms (e.g. boots or bots);

5. to refrain from recording and storing other customers’ information without their consent;

6. to refrain from spreading viruses, trojans and other harmful files when configuring content on the Platform and communicating with other users;

7. to refrain from sending out chain letters, junk or spam emails;

8. to refrain from distributing and/or publicly reproducing content available on the Platform, unless the original copyright holder explicitly allows this or it is explicitly provided as a function on the Platform;

9. to refrain from any action which is likely to adversely affect the smooth operation of the Platform, especially excessive loading of PPE.PAGE’s systems;

10. to take appropriate precautions for the event that the applications completely or partially fail to work properly, by testing this thoroughly for its applicability for the intended purpose before deploying it operationally;

11. to provide PPE.PAGE in good time with all information, documents and data which may be required or helpful for executing the contract;

12. to obtain the necessary consent from data subjects where personal data is collected, processed or used while using the Application and there is no existing legal permission for this;

13. to carry out regular backups commensurate with the importance of the data, and to create its own backup copies in order to facilitate reconstruction of the data and information if it is lost, whereby this shall not affect any obligation on the part of PPE.PAGE to create its own backups.

Section 9 - Liability for defects

1. PPE.PAGE shall be liable for defects in the contractual services exclusively according to this Section 9.

2. A defect has arisen if suitability for contractual use is eliminated or significantly reduced. If suitability for contractual use is completely eliminated, the customer shall be exempt from paying remuneration until the defect is rectified. In the event of partial unsuitability for use, the remuneration shall be reduced by a reasonable amount until the defect is rectified.

3. The customer shall inform PPE.PAGE immediately of defects in text form as they arise.

4. The customer shall support PPE.PAGE as much as possible and feasible in rectifying the defect, and shall in particular provide it with all the necessary documents, data etc. which it requires in order to analyse and rectify the defect.

5. The customer shall have no entitlement to compensation due to a defect which is present when the contract is concluded, or which arises later in the contractual services due to a circumstance which is not the provider’s fault.

Section 10 - Granting of rights

Unless otherwise agreed, the customer may not transfer individual rights from this contract and the contract as a whole to third parties, unless PPE.PAGE issues its explicit consent to this. PPE.PAGE shall issue its consent if the customer’s legitimate need to transfer rights outweighs PPE.PAGE’s legitimate interests in its refraining from doing so.

Section 11 - Liability

1. PPE.PAGE does not provide any guarantees as regards availability, reliability, functionality or suitability of the portal for particular purposes. Liability is excluded wherever it is not mandatory according to the Produkthaftungsgesetz (Product Liability Act), due to injury to life, body or health, due to takeover of a quality guarantee, due to fraudulent concealment of a defect or due to breach of important contractual obligations. Important contractual obligations are those which must be fulfilled in order for a contract to be carried out at all, and which the contracting parties are generally entitled to trust will be fulfilled. Compensation due to breach of important contractual obligations is limited to the contractually typical, foreseeable losses, except in cases of intention and gross negligence.

2. The above limitation of liability applies at the same time to the representatives, employees and vicarious agents of PPE.PAGE.

Section 12 - Providing references

The customer declares its agreement to PPE.PAGE naming/describing it for its own marketing purposes in connection with the contractual applications of PPE.PAGE within a reasonable scope, and providing corresponding references using the customer’s company logo/brand names.

Section 13 - Offset and right of retention

The customer shall only have rights of offset and rights of retention if its claim is based on the same contractual relationship, concluded under these Licence Conditions.

Section 14 - Start and term of contract, termination

1. The relevant contract shall start on the day when it is concluded. The minimum term shall be derived from the relevant contractual documents.

2. The contractual relationship may be terminated by either party at the earliest when the minimum term expires, with a notice period of two calendar months. Otherwise, the contract shall be extended by the agreed term and may then likewise only be terminated with a notice period of two calendar months to the end of the relevant extension period.

3. The right to termination for good cause remains unaffected. The customer’s right to extraordinary termination of the contract without notice if it is not granted the full contractual use of the rental item, or this use is completely or partially withdrawn, is excluded (Section 543(2)(1) BGB (German Civil Code)).

4. All notices of termination according to the relevant contract must be given in writing.

Section 15 - Obligations at and after end of the contract

PPE.PAGE undertakes to erase the customer’s stored data one month at the earliest after the end of the relevant contractual relationship, or to arrange for this to be done.

The customer itself is responsible for exporting any application data which it still requires after the end of the contract. PPE.PAGE shall, however, provide it with appropriate support in doing so. Associated support services shall be provided for a fee, and shall be compensated separately.

Section 16 - Text form

Amendments or supplements to contracts concluded under these General Licence Conditions shall require the text form. This also applies to the waiver of this text form requirement.

Section 17 - Severability clause

Should a provision of these Terms and Conditions of Participation and Use be or become invalid, this shall not affect the legal validity of the remaining provisions.

Section 18 - Place of jurisdiction and choice of law

If the user is a business entity, legal entity under public law or special asset under public law, Celle shall be the place of jurisdiction for all legal disputes arising from and associated with this contractual relationship. The right to appeal to the court at another legal place of jurisdiction remains unaffected.
