General Terms and Conditions for workupload
A. PROVIDER, SCOPE
1. These General Terms and Conditions (GTC) govern the contractual relationship between the operators of workupload and the users.
2. workupload is operated by Julian Liebig, Steinstr. 9, D-37603 Holzminden.
3. workupload is available on the www.workupload.com website.
4. Users are private persons or legal persons who use the workupload offer or register at workupload. Users are private persons (consumers) within the meaning of § 13 BGB, i.e. natural persons who conclude the respective legal transaction for a purpose, which can neither be predominantly attributed to their commercial nor their independent professional activity. In other cases, the users are entrepreneurs according to § 14 BGB.
1. workupload offers a range of services to enable online users to share and manage digital content. In so doing, workupload users' content is not checked, edited or otherwise acknowledged. However, workupload reserves the right to review and delete the content, insofar as this is required by law or if there is reasonable suspicion that the same is in violation of the law.
2. workupload does not provide any search functionality that could search the infrastructure of content posted by users. The files cannot be catalogued by users nor listed in tables of contents. Only the user who provides a file through workupload controls whether, how, and for what files he will allow access by others.
3. The workupload offer can be used free of charge and without registration. With registration and paid offers, users have more options to share and manage digital content.
4. The fee-based offer of workupload is only available to users who are domiciled or have their place of business in the European Union.
5. workupload endeavors to constantly develop, maintain and make the offer available to users. It is constantly being expanded and is based on various factors, such as user requirements, market requirements and technical and economic factors. Users are therefore not entitled to the content or scope of the offer remaining unchanged, or having certain functions. There is also no claim that the offer is always accessible and if available, will work flawlessly.
6. A contract is concluded between the users and workupload either by users using free offers and accepting these Terms and Conditions or registering in order to use paid offers. As part of the registration, users must also agree to these Terms and Conditions.
C. TERM, TERMINATION
1. Paid contracts are concluded with a contract term of one month. If the contract is not terminated with one month's notice to the end of the contract, the paid contract will be extended for another month.
2. The right to extraordinary termination of the contract remains reserved to both contracting parties. This is particularly the case if users violate contract terms.
D. REGISTRATION, PAID USAGE
1. If users register at workupload, they set the corresponding access data for the access to the offer. Users are obliged to treat access data confidentially and are liable for any misuse resulting from unauthorized use of the access data.
2. If the users become aware that the access data are known to unauthorized third parties, the users have to inform workupload thereof immediately. If, due to the fault of the user, unauthorized third parties use workupload services, the users are liable for this.
3. In case of suspicion, the users therefore have the option and the obligation to renew the access data.
4. workupload reserves the right to block or restrict access at any time if there is a suspicion that an unauthorized third party has obtained the access data of a user.
E. COSTS, TERMS OF PAYMENT
1. The costs for the extended offer functions are clearly communicated to the users in advance.
2. Unless otherwise stated, these costs include statutory VAT.
3. The costs have to be paid in advance and are independent of the actual use of the offer.
4. The billing by workupload occurs on a monthly basis.
5. The payment is made using one of the offered payment options.
F. USER CONTENT, PROHIBITED CONTENT, RELEASE FROM LIABILITY
1. By using the workupload offer, users agree to comply with applicable laws, including but not limited to copyright, trademark and competition law.
2. In addition, users must observe third-party rights. This applies in particular to offensive, obscene, racist, threatening, harassing or defamatory content. In doing so, the users undertake in particular not to violate the rights of third parties, nor to distribute or upload any content that violates applicable law.
3. workupload also prohibits users from providing data that is sexually-targeted. If there are doubts about the classification, the users guarantee to contact workupload Support.
4. Furthermore, users are prohibited from using the workupload offer to provide malware (malware, hacking tools, password generators, etc.).
5. Users are exclusively responsible for the content they provide on workupload. If workupload has to be held accountable for a user's content (e.g., due to the use of a copyrighted file or the distribution of illegal content), the users indemnify workupload and its vicarious agents from all claims and the necessary costs incurred in connection with the defense against claims, which third parties assert against workupload due to an infringement for which the user is responsible. The necessary costs include, in particular, court fees and legal fees at the statutory rate.
G. LIABILITY UNDER TELEMEDIA LAW
Users acknowledge that workupload assumes no responsibility for the content that workupload has not created or has not acknowledged.
1. The German warranty law applies.
2. The following applies to companies: With the exception of claims for damages, warranty claims due to material defects lapse after one year. The statute of limitation begins with the granting of the possibility of using the workupload offer.
1. The following disclaimers and limitations apply for workupload's liability for damages, without prejudice to the other statutory eligibility requirements.
2. On an unrestricted basis, workupload bears liability, as far as the cause of damages is based on intent or gross negligence.
3. Furthermore, workupload is liable for the slightly negligent breach of material obligations, the breach of which puts the achievement of the contractual purpose at risk or is a breach of obligations, the fulfillment of which is the proper execution of the contract in the first place and on whose compliance you regularly trust. In this case, however, workupload is liable only for foreseeable, contract-typical damage and not for the slightly negligent violation of others, other than those obligations mentioned in the preceding sentence.
4. As far as the liability of workupload is excluded or limited, this also applies to the personal liability of its employees, its representatives and vicarious agents.
1. workupload processes users' personal data for specific purposes and in accordance with statutory provisions. This is the data that users provide when registering and that are collected when using the offer. This personal data that is used for the purpose of providing the service is exclusively used by workupload to fulfill and execute the contract. This information will be kept confidential and will not be disclosed to third parties who are not involved in the contract fulfillment and payment process.
2. The user has the right to obtain information from workupload about the personal data stored about them, free of charge. In addition, the user has the right to correct inaccurate data and to block and delete their personal data to the extent that there is no legal obligation of retention.
L. ONLINE DISPUTE RESOLUTION, DISPUTE SETTLEMENT
1. The platform of the European Commission for online dispute resolution (OS platform) can be reached via the following link: http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/
2. We are not obligated to participate in a dispute resolution procedure before a consumer-enforcement agency and are not prepared to do so.
M. APPLICABLE LAW, CONTRACT LANGUAGE, CONTRACT TEXT, JURISDICTION. PLACE OF PERFORMANCE
1. German law shall apply to this contract, to the exclusion of international private law (IPR) and the United Nations Convention on the International Sale of Goods (CISG), insofar as no mandatory provisions preclude this.
2. The contractual language is German.
3. The contract text is saved by workupload. The Terms and Conditions can be found on the workupload website and can be printed out.
4. The workupload registered place of business is agreed with entrepreneurs as the place of jurisdiction and place of fulfillment.
