All of this is referred to as “post content” respectively “posted content” in the following. When posting content, the following rules shall be observed. Your posted content must not contain any of the following:

  • Contents of a racist, pornographic, obscene, or insulting nature, contents that glorify or trivialise violence or that are otherwise unlawful or against public policy;

(2) In particular, your competitions may not encourage anyone to commit any acts endangering the life, body and health but also personal rights of participants or third parties or to commit any illegal acts.
(3) You may only post such content to which you have the required rights and/or to the posting of which any affected people, e.g. visible on pictures or mentioned in texts, have given their consent to the extent required.
(4) We expressly point out that you may also be liable for posting links (URLs) if these are referring
to illegal content.
(5) The use of crawlers or similar tools is also prohibited in our app.
(6) If we become aware that any content posted or the competition itself violates the preceding regulations or if we receive a request from a third party claiming any violation, we are entitled to instantly remove the content and/or the competition concerned and to block the violating Comps user and/or delete his or her account and to exclude him or her from the future use of Comps.

4 Granting Rights of Use; Affirmation of Ownership Rights

(1) You shall grant us a non-exclusive, free-of- charge right to use the posted content (see sec. 3 para. 1 of this Terms of Use) without any limitation as to place and time. This includes the right of copying, storage and making publicly available, as far as this is required for the operation of Comps and the services offered on it.

8 Disclaimer

We shall be liable exclusively according to the following regulations, no matter what the legal basis may be.
(1) We shall only be liable for intent and gross negligence. In the event of slight negligence, we shall be liable only in the case of a breach of a material contractual obligation whose fulfilment is essential to the due performance of the contract and on whose fulfilment you may always rely (cardinal obligation). In this context, we shall be liable only for foreseeable damage whose occurrence must typically be expected. This also applies to lost profit and unrealised savings. No liability will be accepted for other remote consequential damage.
(2) The limitation of our liability shall not apply in the event of injury to life, body and/or health and in the event of liability under the German Product Liability Act (ProdHaftG).
(3) We shall not be liable for any events of force majeure that make the contractual performance impossible, even if such events merely impair the due performance of the contract to a significant extent or hinder it temporarily. Force majeure comprises all circumstances that are independent from the will and influence of the contracting parties, such as terror attacks, embargo, confiscation, natural disasters, strike, official orders or other serious and unforeseeable circumstances for which the contracting parties are not responsible. In this context, a circumstance will be regarded as force majeure only if it occurs after the conclusion of the contract.
(4) Insofar as our liability is excluded or limited, this shall also apply to the liability of our employees, other staff members, representatives and agents.
(5) Within the scope of applicability of the German Telecommunications Act (TKG), the liability provision of Section 44a TKG remains unaffected in any case.

9 Applicable Law; Contract Language

(1) This Contract shall be governed by German law, under exclusion of the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG). Mandatory consumer protection regulations under the law of the state in which a consumer has his habitual abode remain unaffected. A consumer is any natural person that concludes a legal transaction for purposes largely not related to its commercial or self-employed activity.
(2) The Contract Language is German. The English version of this Terms of Use is for information only. In the event of contradictions between the German text and the English version, the German text shall have priority.

10 Amendments of these Terms of Use

We reserve the right to amend these Terms of Use by observing the following procedure if there is good cause, in particular based on new technological developments, changes in law or jurisdiction or other equivalent reasons. If the contractual balance between the parties is significantly disturbed, the amendment shall be waived. You will be sent the amended Terms of Use by e-mail to your e-mail address provided upon registration, indicating the respective amendments. If you do not object within two weeks of the
receipt of the said e-mail, your approval of the respective amendments will be deemed granted. In the e-mail containing the amendments, we will specifically draw your attention to the importance of this period. If you object to the amendments within this period, we may exclude you from the use of Comps and delete your user profile as soon as the amendments become effective.

11 Severability

Should individual provisions of these Terms of Use be fully or partially invalid or unenforceable or become invalid or unenforceable after the conclusion of the contract, this shall not affect the validity of the remaining part of the contract.
