The platform is a network accessible via the websites https://myframen.com, https://framen.io, https://framen.tv, their subdomains on the Internet or via the mobile applications of the FRAMEN Photo App and FRAMEN Play App in the Google Play and Apple AppStore. The purpose of the platform is to discover, create, upload or share photo playlists with other users. This includes in particular information as well as contact and device information.
  3. "User" in the sense of these Terms of Use means all registered users or users directly "logged in" via link (e.g. QR Code) via (temporary) access token entering users who have been invited to the platform registered users. A use of the platform without prior registration is not possible. Our platform may only be used by users with good intentions, an exclusion by FRAMEN can be made at any time without notice, in case of immoral use.
  1. Prerequisite for the use of the platform is a registration of the user on the platform. The details, e-mail address, user name and passwords provided by the User in the course of registration may be freely chosen and correct. In addition, the User must assign a password to himself. There is no legal claim to admission to the platform. We can therefore refuse to accept the offer embodied in the registration form without giving reasons.
  2. After the user has sent the registration form, he is directly admitted to the platform without confirmation.
  3. The platform is accessed by entering the user's personal access data in the login form. A password can be reset if the user so requests and agrees that the platform will send him a new password by e-mail.
  4. The user is obliged to keep the access data, especially the password, safe from access by third parties. It is not permitted to pass on this data to third parties. This also applies to family members and colleagues. The User undertakes to keep all access data, in particular the password, secret at all times and to prevent unauthorised use of the Platform by third parties. Sharing the account with several users is technically possible.
  5. The user must inform us immediately if he/she knows or suspects possible misuse of the access data. In this case we have the right to block any access of the user to the platform. The user shall be liable for all consequences of misuse of the access data by third parties, unless he is not responsible for the unauthorised use.
  6.  
  1. We make the platform available to the user in order to be able to use his own photos or moving images/ videos and to get in contact with other users of the platform. It is exclusively a contact and information platform. The platform contains the following functions:
    • Registration: The registration function is described in section 2 of these terms of use.
    • User profile: After registering on the platform, including the assignment of a password and the creation of the basic profile, the user can log in at any time and adapt his user profile or extend it by entering his user name, password and profile picture. The information provided by the User in his user profile must be correct and complete. Each user profile has the following sections:

    • Service providers can post articles and contributions themselves and display them on the dashboard for users. These entries are checked by the Community Manager after publication. Service providers can also write offers and post them on the platform. Service providers can discuss in the projects to which they have been invited by business customers and also post their offers in the projects/chats. Service providers cannot start their own projects or invite to chats.
  3.  
  1. The user grants us a simple, transferable and permanent right to use the content provided ("user content") in his own name and in the name of his company. The user is responsible for ensuring that he has sufficient power of representation in the internal relationship between him and his company.
  2. We grant the User's company a simple, non-transferable, permanent right of use to the information provided via the Platform that is not User Content ("Provider Content"), whereby the User and the User's company are entitled to permanently store, copy and further process the Provider Content on the respective device.

  5.  
  1. The contract of use begins with the registration of the user on the platform.
  2. The contract of use can be terminated by both parties at any time without giving reasons. A termination is deemed to have been made if the user requests the deletion of his account or user profile from us. In the event of termination, the registration including the user profile of the User expires and the User loses the right to access the Platform and its contents.
  3. We reserve the right to temporarily or permanently block and/or withdraw the user's access in the event of violations of these terms of use without giving reasons and to terminate the contract of use extraordinarily. This applies in particular if the user
    • provides false information during registration, and/or
    • passes on the access data, in particular the password, without authorisation.
  4. Defect rights and liability, data backup
    1. We assume no guarantee or liability that the platform is available around the clock. This applies in particular in the event that the platform becomes inoperable due to external attacks.
    2. The contents of the platform serve the user for information and to support his independent work processes. In no way does the platform or the information retrievable via the platform replace an accurate, independent and case-related review by the respective user. We expressly point out that the User may make selection or input errors when using the platform, which may lead to false and incorrect results. Similarly, programming errors not previously known to us could lead to incorrect output.
    3. Our liability for material and legal defects of the information accessible via the platform is limited to the liability for fraudulently concealed defects.
    4. In addition, we shall only be liable for intent and gross negligence. This does not apply in cases of mandatory statutory liability, in particular under the Product Liability Act.
    5. The user is obliged to take appropriate measures to prevent and reduce damage. In particular, the user must make backup copies, if necessary. The user must check the information to see whether it is suitable for the intended use in the specific situation. Failure to comply with these obligations shall be deemed contributory negligence.
  5. Amendment of the terms of use
    1. The user will be notified of any changes to these terms of use by e-mail. The notification of changes shall be deemed received no later than three days after sending it to the last known e-mail address. If the user does not object to such changes within four weeks of receipt of the notification, the changes shall be deemed to have been agreed. The objection must be made in text form. We shall expressly draw the user's attention to the right of objection and the consequences of silence.
    2. If the user objects, both parties have the right to terminate the contract of use with immediate effect by giving notice. In this case, the user must terminate the use of the services immediately.
  6. Final provisions
    1. The User Agreement including these Terms of Use constitutes the entire agreement of the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior written or oral agreements of the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof. Terms and conditions of the user or the user's company, including those contained in offers, acceptances, letters of confirmation or other communications with the user, shall not apply, even if we have not expressly objected to them.
    2. All changes and amendments to the contract of use as well as the notifications required within the scope of its implementation must be made in writing to be effective. The written form requirement can only be waived in writing.
    3. The contract of use is subject to German law.
    4. If the user is a merchant, legal entity under public law or a special fund under public law, the exclusive place of jurisdiction for all legal disputes arising from or in connection with this contract shall be Frankfurt/Main. However, we are entitled to sue the user as well as the user's company at any other legal place of jurisdiction.
    5. Should any provision of the User Agreement or these Terms of Use be invalid or unenforceable or contain a loophole, this shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions.
  7.  
  1. 1 [General note B&M: The individual clauses of the terms of use are general terms and conditions in the sense of § 305 ff. BGB (GERMAN CIVIL CODE). There is therefore a risk that individual clauses may be declared invalid. This risk exists in particular if a clause unreasonably disadvantages the contractual partner or if a clause is not clear and comprehensible. In this document, this applies above all with regard to clause 7. If a clause is invalid, the content of the contract is governed by the statutory provisions. In addition, there is a risk that other companies may bring injunctive relief against FRAMEN GmbH for the use of invalid standard contractual clauses].

    2 [B&M's note: We recommend that the use of the telephone number for validation purposes in the registration process be explicitly mentioned].

    3 [B&M note: We assume that the platform is not designed for electronic conclusion of contracts. If it is, further information on the conclusion of the contracts concluded between the service provider and the business customer must be included].

    4 [B&M note: We assume that the service providers do not wish to make binding offers (as they may have to check availability first) and that the conclusion of a contract - if it is concluded at all via the platform - will at best be achieved through individual communication].

    5 [B&M note: We have included the upload function as a service obligation on the part of FRAMEN GmbH/essential component of the platform. In this case, we consider it to be justifiable not to obtain consent under data protection law. However, if FRAMEN GmbH does not wish to commit itself to this service, consent must be obtained. In order to grant voluntary consent, this would require participation in the platform even without the upload function. Please let us know if you would like to obtain consent after all, as in this case we will also have to adapt the data protection declaration [German].

    • You have the right to know which data you are processing. Please contact us under "Contact" on the platform in the menu. To avoid misuse, you will receive the information in writing. You also have the right to request the correction or, if necessary, the completion of the incorrect personal data concerning you. Please contact us under "Contact" and let us know which data is incorrect and which you would like to have corrected. You can correct your password and user profile information by changing it in your user profile. You also have the option to have the registration and user profile information deleted if you no longer wish to use the Service. Please contact us under "Contact". You also have the right to request that the processing be restricted if you (i) refuse to allow the accuracy of your personal data, (ii) the processing is unlawful and you refuse to have it deleted and instead request the restriction of your personal data; the personal data is no longer required, but you need the personal data to assert, exercise or defend legal claims. You also have the right to receive personal data concerning you provided by you in a structured, common and machine-readable format and to transfer the personal data directly to another responsible party. The above law applies.
