Conditions of use for e-cards

Status 10/03/11

For the provision of the e-card feature by Hansgrohe USA the following conditions of use apply.

1. Services of the e-card

We provide the users of the website with the e-card feature, with which the user can send e-mails to recipients selected by him/her and e-mail addresses entered by him/her. The user determines the content of the messages himself/herself, with the exception of the e-card pictures made available by us and the imprint details. Messages are sent unencrypted and will not be sent in the event of a corresponding declaration to us by the recipient.

2. Our responsibilities

The provision of the e-card feature is a voluntary and free service that we provide, which can be terminated or restricted at any time. We shall not check the accuracy of the e-mail address entered by the user and cannot guarantee the availability of the feature or that e-mails will be successfully sent and received.

3. Responsibility of the user

The user confirms that the recipient has agreed to receive a message.
The user shall be solely responsible for the contents selected and sent by him/her, his/her representatives or other people with access to his/her access details. The user must not breach current laws in doing so. This shall particularly include not being permitted to distribute any contents that are illegal, offensive or infringe upon copyrights. The e-card service must not be used to send mass e-cards or any other form of advertising or marketing messages or chain letters.

4. User’s liability for his/her actions

Should the user breach his/her contractual or legal obligations, he/she shall be liable to us in accordance with legal provisions.

The user shall also release us from all third-party claims made against us on the grounds of a breach of third-party rights through his/her usage. Should the user breach his/her obligations, current laws or good practice, we retain the right to temporarily or permanently terminate the rights of usage.
