Conditions of Use for Dealer Recommendation

Status 10/03/11

For the provision of the dealer recommendation feature by Hansgrohe USA the following conditions of use apply.

1. Services

We provide the users of our website with the dealer recommendation feature. With the aid of the Shopfinder, the user can select retailers and then send their address data to recipients selected by him/her via e-mail or text message. The user thereby enters the recipients and their address data (e-mail address or cell number) himself/herself. We then create the message content (dealer address data and required imprint details). In case of text messages, the user cannot change or supplement the text. In case of e-mails, the user can additionally insert contents in the reference line and in the message text. 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 dealer recommendation 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 recipient address details entered by the user and cannot guarantee the availability of the feature, or that e-mails or text messages will be successfully sent and received.

3. Responsibility of the user

The user confirms that the recipient has agreed to receive a message.

With the exception of the dealer address details provided by us, 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. If the user can add to or create contents, he/she 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 dealer recommendation feature 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.
