Terms and Conditions of Use for the E-Card as of October 2011
The following terms and conditions of use apply to Hansgrohe UK's provision of the e-card function.
1. E-Card Services
We provide the users of the website www.hansgrohe.de with the e-card function, which they can use to send e-mails to recipients they have selected and e-mail addresses they have entered. The user independently determines the contents of the messages with the exception of the e-card images selected by us and the legal notice. Messages are sent in unencrypted format and will not be sent if the recipient informs us that they are not desired.
2. Our Responsibilities
The e-card function is an optional and free of charge service supplied by ourselves, which can be discontinued or limited at any time. We do not check the accuracy of the e-mail addresses entered by the user and do not guarantee the availability of the function or that e-mails can be successfully sent and accessed.
3. User Responsibilities
The user confirms that the recipient agrees to receive a message.
The user is solely responsible for the contents which are generated, selected and sent by him, his representatives or other persons with access to his access. The user must not violate current laws, and in particular not distribute content which is illegal, in breach of contract, infringes copyright or is offensive. The e-card service must not be used to send spam e-cards or any other form of advertising or marketing messages or chain letters.
4. Liability of the User for his Behaviour
The user is liable for breaches in his contractual or legal obligations in accordance with the legal regulations.
In addition, the user releases us from any third-party claims asserted against us due to an infringement of third-party rights through his use. If the user is in breach of his obligations, applicable laws or common decency, we reserve the right to temporarily or permanently block his usage.
Information on Data Protection
If you use our e-card function, we will collect and use the e-mail addresses and names which you have provided for the sender and recipient as well as the message you have entered and your IP address within the scope allowed by law and in accordance with our information on data protection.
