1. Description of services

LEICHT offers registered Users a market place for kitchen design in which natural and legal persons and partnerships (hereinafter: “Users”) can publish data, texts, images, graphics (hereinafter: “Information”). The scope of services offered by LEICHT is detailed in the service descriptions which can be called up on our Website as well as in the special conditions for these services. Our services solely concern rendering services and providing storage capacity; this in no way constitutes a promise of specific success.

As part of our major obligation within our technical and operational possibilities as well as within those of our providers, we offer an average availability of the database of 28 days a month. Within this Agreement we are entitled to power down the database for purposes of updating or technical verification and maintenance. The User agrees to all interruptions to service which are useful or necessary for technical reasons – even those which take place at short notice or without notice. In return, we undertake to execute such interruptions at times at which the call up of data tends to be minimal.

Users must register in order to use and view the market place.
Users do not have a right to us publishing the information provided.
Use of the Website is free of charge.

If we offer services free of charge, we are entitled, at any time and without prior notice, to change, limit or even no longer offer these services. Gratuitous services in no way represent essential contractual obligations on our part.

2. Use of the Website / obligations of the User

2.1 Use of this Website and the provision of Information are subject to the User having full legal capacity. Before providing Information, you must register. You are required to provide correct Information when registering. Information about the personal data of the User collected during the registration process is set out in the Data Privacy Statement.

2.4 You are solely responsible for your own content, particularly for the texts and images you provide us and for their correctness and legal admissibility. You particularly undertake to ensure that the contents you provide or upload, especially texts, images, graphics, etc., do not infringe rights of third parties, particularly copyright, personal rights, design/taste sample and/or trademark rights of third parties and do not otherwise violate any legal provisions. Please ensure, particularly in the case of content depicting persons or in the case of works protected by copyright, that you obtain or have permission to publish it on the Website. Furthermore, please note that you are obliged to name the originators/copyright holders.

2.5 If the content you have uploaded or provided is protected by copyright, trademark or other property rights, you grant LEICHT a simple right of usage for the reproduction of the protected content, particularly the corresponding copying, dissemination and processing rights as well as the right to make this content publicly available.

2.6 LEICHT is entitled, but not obliged, to verify content, particularly texts and images, uploaded or provided, to see whether they violate rights of third parties or in any other way violate general legal provisions. If the User violates the aforementioned provisions, the User is obliged to release LEICHT from all claims by third parties resulting from this violation. This includes any penalties, fines or costs which become due as part of criminal proceedings as well as any judicial and extrajudicial costs of LEICHT in the course of a civil dispute. This shall not apply if you are not responsible for the infringement. In the event of a claim by third parties, you shall provide LEICHT with all information necessary for the purpose of examining and defending against the claims in full and without delay. Until all disputes are clarified, LEICHT is always and at all times entitled to remove or block relevant content.

2.7 The elements of LEICHT’s Website created by LEICHT are copyright-protected for the benefit of LEICHT. This applies, in particular, to logos and emblems. Layout, images, logos, texts, data, graphics and similar material from LEICHT and design elements on the Website may not be copied or reproduced, disseminated or made publicly available without authorisation or otherwise used in a manner not authorised by copyright or trademark law.

2.8 You undertake not to use the information and services provided to
- violate the applicable law (especially copyright, licence rights and rights of use), the rights of third parties or offend against common decency,
- violate official provisions,
- impair LEICHT’s interests,
- breach this Agreement.

2.9 You are liable for ensuring that the files transmitted are free of viruses. LEICHT can delete files with viruses without the User being entitled to any claims as a result. LEICHT reserves the right to claim compensation for damage caused by viruses.

3. Links of third parties

The following applies to all links which refer to websites of third parties: LEICHT has no influence on the content of these sites and cannot assume any liability for their content. When these websites are linked for the first time, the third-party websites are examined to determine whether they contain illegal or criminal content. However, links are dynamic and can change swiftly. We therefore expressly distance ourselves from all content of all linked websites of third parties and refuse to accept any liability in connection with their use.

4. Limitation of liability

LEICHT shall only be liable for damage caused by intent or gross negligence by LEICHT or its statutory representatives or vicarious agents or by a breach of an essential contractual duty.

5. Duration of the contract – termination

The duration of the contract is unlimited. Each party can terminate the contract by observing a period of one week. Each party is nevertheless entitled to terminate the contract for good cause. From the point of view of LEICHT, good cause results from Users violating their obligations as stipulated in Paragraphs 2.2., 2.3., 2.4., 2.6., 2.7.7 and/or 2.8.. Access is blocked for a particular User whenever a contract has been terminated for good cause.

6. Final provisions

In commercial business transactions, exclusive place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from this Agreement is Schwäbisch Gmünd.
