Terms of Use - SwissOffices

SwissOffices Hakkında

1. Scope

1.1 Use of this site ("Website") is provided by SwissOffices subject exclusively to these Terms of Use. These Terms of Use may be supplemented, amended or replaced in specific instances by further terms and conditions, applicable for example to the purchase of products and/or services. By logging in or, where no special login procedure is required, by simply using the Website, you agree to be bound by the current version of these Terms of Use.

2. Services

2.1 SwissOffices provides access to viewable or downloadable information and software, including documentation, on the Website.

2.2 SwissOffices is entitled to suspend all or part of the Website at any time. Owing to the nature of the Internet and computer systems, SwissOffices does not warrant the uninterrupted availability of the Website.

3. Registration, password

3.1 Some pages on the Website may be password-protected. In the interests of secure business transactions, access to these pages is restricted to registered users. Users are not automatically entitled to be registered by SwissOffices. SwissOffices reserves the right, in particular, to restrict future access to previously freely accessible pages to registered users. SwissOffices may revoke access authorization at any time by blocking access data, without being required to state its reasons for doing so, if the user

  • makes false registration entries,
  • infringes these Terms of Use or the user's own duty to take due care of the access data,
  • infringes any applicable law when accessing or using the Website, or
  • does not use the Website for a prolonged period of time.

3.2 If registration is required, the registration entries made by the user must reflect the truth. Any subsequent changes in the registration data entered must be immediately notified (online where possible) to SwissOffices. The user must ensure that e-mails sent to the e-mail address specified by the user are in fact received by the user.

3.3 After successful registration, the user shall be given a user name and password (also referred to in the following as “user data”). When the Website is accessed for the first time, the user must change the password issued by SwissOffices to a password which is known only to the user. The user data enables the user to view or change the user’s personal data or, as applicable, to extend or withdraw consent to data processing.

3.4 The user shall ensure that the user data is not made accessible to third parties and shall be liable for all transactions and other activities carried out using this user data. The user must log off from the password-protected Websites at the end of each online session. If the user becomes aware that third parties are misusing the user data, the user must notify SwissOffices of the same immediately in writing, or, as the case may be, by e-mail.

3.5 As soon as the notification referred to under 3.4 is received, SwissOffices will deny access to the password-protected area under such user data. Access shall only be restored if a separate application to SwissOffices is made by the user or following re-registration.

3.6 The user may at any time request termination of its registration in writing, provided that such deletion will not conflict with existing contractual relations. In such event SwissOffices will remove all user data and any other user personal data it has stored as soon as such data is no longer required.

4. Rights of use to information, software and documentation

4.1 The use of any information, software and documentation made available on or via this Website is subject to these Terms of Use or, in the case of updated information, software or documentation, to the applicable license terms previously agreed to with SwissOffices. Separately agreed license terms shall prevail over these Terms of Use.

4.2 SwissOffices grants the user a non-exclusive and non-transferable license to use the information, software and documentation made available to the user on or via the Website to the extent agreed, or - in the event of no such agreement - to the extent of the purpose intended by SwissOffices in making same available.

4.3 Software shall be made available free of charge in object code. There shall be no right for the source code to be made available. This shall not apply to source code related to open source software, the license conditions of which take priority over these Terms of Use if open source software is transferred and which conditions require the source code to be made available. In such a case SwissOffices shall make the source code available in return for payment of costs.

4.4 Information, software and documentation may not be distributed by the user to any third party at any time nor may it be leased or in any other way made available. Unless permitted by mandatory law, the user shall not modify the software or documentation nor disassemble, reverse engineer or decompile the software or separate any part thereof. The user may make one backup copy of the software where necessary to secure further use in accordance with these Terms of Use.

4.5 The information, software and documentation are protected by copyright laws, international copyright treaties and other laws and conventions related to intellectual property. The user shall comply with such laws and in particular shall not modify, conceal or remove any alphanumeric code, marks or copyright notices either from the information or from the software or from the documentation, or from any copies thereof.

5. Intellectual property

5.1 Notwithstanding the specific provisions of Section 4 of these Terms of Use, information, brand names and other contents of the Website may not be changed, copied, reproduced, sold, rented, used, supplemented or utilized in any other way without the prior written permission of SwissOffices.

5.2 Except for the rights of use and other rights expressly granted herein, no other rights – including but not limited to the company name and intellectual property rights such as patents, utility models or brands - are granted to the user nor shall any obligation be implied requiring the grant of further rights by SwissOffices.

6. Duties of the user

6.1 In accessing or using the Website the user shall not

  • harm other persons, in particular minors, or infringe their personal rights;
  • act in a manner which breaches public morality;
  • violate any intellectual property right or any other proprietary right;
  • upload any contents containing a virus, a so-called Trojan Horse, or any other program that could damage software;
  • transmit, store or upload hyperlinks or contents to which the user is not entitled, in particular in cases where such hyperlinks or contents are in breach of confidentiality obligations or unlawful, or
  • distribute advertising or unsolicited e-mails (so-called "spam") or inaccurate warnings of viruses and/or defects, or any similar material; the user shall furthermore not solicit or request the participation in any lottery, snowball system, chain letter, pyramid game or similar activity.

6.2 SwissOffices shall be entitled to deny access to the Website at any time, particularly in cases in which the user infringes the duties arising from these Terms of Use.

7. Hyperlinks

The Website may contain hyperlinks to the web pages of third parties. SwissOffices disclaims all liability for the contents of such web pages and does not make representations about or endorse such web pages or their contents as its own, as SwissOffices does not control the information on such web pages and is not responsible for the contents and information given thereon. The use of such web pages shall be at the sole risk of the user.

8. Liability for defects in title or quality

8.1 Insofar as any information, software or documentation is made available at no cost, any liability for defects in quality or title concerning the information, software and documentation, especially in relation to correctness or absence of defects or absence of claims or third party rights or in relation to completeness and/or fitness for purpose, are excluded except for cases involving willful misconduct or fraud.

8.2 The information on the Website may contain specifications or general descriptions related to the technical possibilities of individual products which may not be available in certain cases (e.g. due to product changes). The required performance of the product shall therefore be mutually agreed in each case at the time of purchase.

9. Other liability, viruses

9.1 The liability of SwissOffices for defects of quality and title shall be determined in accordance with the provisions of Section 8 of these Terms of Use. Any further liability on the part of SwissOffices shall be excluded unless required by law, e.g. under Product Liability legislation or in cases of willful misconduct, gross negligence, personal injury or death, failure to meet warranted characteristics, fraudulent concealment of a defect or in case of breach of fundamental contractual obligations. The damages in case of breach of fundamental contractual obligations shall be limited to the contract-typical, foreseeable damage if there is no willful misconduct or gross negligence.

9.2 Although SwissOffices makes every effort to keep the Website free of viruses, SwissOffices does not warrant that it is virus-free. The user shall be responsible for taking the necessary protective steps to ensure appropriate security measures and shall utilize a virus scanner before downloading any information, software or documentation.

Sections 9.1 and 9.2 do not imply any changes to the burden of proof to the user's disadvantage.

10. Export controls

10.1 The export of certain information, software and documentation may, e.g. due to its nature or intended use or final destination, be subject to authorization. The user shall strictly comply with export regulations for information, software and documentation, in particular with those of the EU as well as of the individual EU member states and of the USA. SwissOffices shall label information, software and documentation in relation to German and EU export control lists and the US Commerce Control List.

10. Data privacy

SwissOffices complies with applicable law on data privacy and the SwissOffices privacy policy when collecting, using and processing personal data relating to the user of the Website; these laws and policies can be read via hyperlinks on the Website and/or at www.siemens.com.

11. Additional agreements, legal venue, applicable law

11.1 Additional agreements shall be made in writing to be effective.

11.2 SwissOffices is responsible for and has posted all the pages of the Website. The pages comply with the law applicable in the country in which the responsible company has its business residence. If users access the Website from outside the country in which the responsible company has its business residence, they shall be exclusively responsible for compliance with all applicable local laws.

SwissOffices accepts no responsibility for the articles and comments posted by users. Users are themselves responsible for all contents posted by them. No warranty for accuracy or authenticity is provided.
