These general terms of use may in specific cases be supplemented, modified or replaced by other terms, e.g. for the purchase of products and/or services. By logging in or, should a separate log-in not be required, by commencing use, the user accepts the validity of these general terms of use as currently amended.

In the case of web offers that are directed at companies or public corporations, the respective company or corporation is represented by the user and the user’s action and knowledge will be deemed its own.

2. Services

On the SYSKRON Website SYSKRON holds particular information for retrieval or downloading. SYSKRON accepts no responsibility for the topicality, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided.

Liability claims against SYSKRON based on damages of a material or intellectual nature and caused by the usage or non-usage of information provided in the online site or by defective or incomplete information are excluded by principle provided no negligent or malicious behaviour can be demonstrated on the part of SYSKRON.

All offers on the SYSKRON Website are open and non-binding. SYSKRON reserves the right to change, add to or delete parts of pages or the entire SYSKRON Website or to cease publication temporarily or permanently. Given the nature of the internet and computer systems, SYSKRON does not offer any warranty for the uninterrupted availability of the SYSKRON Website.

3. Intellectual property

Data of the SYSKRON Website, its information, brand names and other content or results which have been generated or displayed using the presentation tools may only be viewed, copied and/or saved, either as a whole or in part, for private, non-commercial use. This use is limited to obtaining information about goods and services offered.

The acquisition, use, sale, leasing, exploitation, duplication, amendment, modification or dissemination of the data of the SYSKRON Website, its content or results for other than private (note: see above!) purposes shall require the written approval of Syskron GmbH.

SYSKRON retains sole copyright to all objects (graphics, sound files, video sequences and texts etc.) created by SYSKRON. The editing or re-editing, duplication or use of any such objects in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without written approval of SYSKRON. Copyright notices and brand designations may be neither modified nor removed.

All trade names and registered trade names cited within the SYSKRON Website and which may be protected by third parties are without exception subject to the conditions of applicable trademark law and rights of possession of the respective registered owners. The fact that a trademark is cited does not by itself indicate that the trademark is not protected by third parties.

Apart from the rights of use or other rights expressly granted herein, the user is not granted any other rights of any kind, in particular to company names and industrial property rights such as patents, utility models or brand names, nor shall SYSKRON have any corresponding duty to grant such rights.

The information on the SYSKRON Website is protected both by copyright laws and international copyright agreements and by other laws and agreements concerning intellectual property. The user shall observe these rights, and in particular shall not remove alphanumeric codes, brand names and copyright notices from the information. This shall in other respects be without prejudice to sections 69a et seq. of the German Copyright Act (Urheberrechtsgesetz).

If the user leaves ideas and suggestions on the SYSKRON Website, SYSKRON may exploit these free of charge for the development, improvement and distribution of the products in its portfolio.

4. Registration, password

Some pages of the SYSKRON Website may be protected by password. In the interests of protecting business relations, only registered users may access these pages. No entitlement to registration by SYSKRON shall exist. In particular, SYSKRON reserves the right to subject even previously freely accessible web pages to a duty of registration. SYSKRON shall have the right at any time to revoke the access authorisation by blocking the access details without the need to indicate the reasons, particularly if the user

  • provided false details when registering,
  • has breached these terms or their duty of care in the treatment of their access details,
  • has breached applicable law when accessing or using the SYSKRON Website, or
  • has not used the SYSKRON Website for a long period of time.

If provision is made for registration, the user shall be bound to provide truthful details when registering and to notify SYSKRON without undue delay (if provided for: online) in the event of any subsequent changes. The user shall ensure that they receive the emails that are sent to the email address they indicated.

On successful registration, the user will be given a user name and password (hereinafter also “User Details”).

The user shall ensure that the User Details are not accessible to third parties and shall be liable for all purchase orders and other activities undertaken using the User Details. The area protected by password must be quit following every use. If the user becomes aware that third parties are misusing the User Details, they shall be bound to notify SYSKRON in writing without undue delay, where appropriate by ordinary email in advance.

On receipt of this notification, SYSKRON will block access to the password-protected area using these User Details. The block may only be lifted upon the separate application of the user to SYSKRON or upon a new registration.

The user can at any time demand in writing that their registration be erased unless erasure conflicts with the processing of current contractual relationships. In this case SYSKRON will erase all User Details and all other stored personal data of the user as soon as these are no longer required.

5. References and links

The SYSKRON Website may contain hyperlinks to third-party websites. SYSKRON does not accept responsibility for the content of these websites, nor does SYSKRON make these websites and their content its own, since SYSKRON does not control the linked information and is also not responsible for the content and information provided there. They are used solely at the user’s own risk (note: see paragraph 2).

6. Duties of the user

When using the SYSKRON Website, the user may not

  • cause damage to persons or infringe their moral rights,
  • outrage public decency by their user behaviour,
  • infringe industrial property rights and copyrights or other ownership rights,
  • transmit content with viruses, Trojans or other programs that could damage software,
  • enter, store or send hyperlinks or content which they are not authorised to do, particularly if these hyperlinks or content breach confidentiality obligations or are unlawful, or
  • distribute advertising or unsolicited emails (known as spam) or inapplicable warnings of viruses, malfunctions and the like or request participation in lotteries, snowball systems, chain letters, pyramid games or comparable campaigns.
  • SYSKRON may block access to the SYSKRON Website at any time, particularly if the user is in breach of their duties under these terms.

7. Exclusion of liability

If information is provided free of charge, liability for material defects and deficiencies in title of the information – except in the case of malice or intent – is excluded, particularly in respect of its accuracy, freedom from errors, freedom from property rights and copyrights of third parties, completeness and/or usefulness.

The information on the SYSKRON Website may contain specifications or general descriptions of the technical possibilities of products which do not necessarily always apply in the individual case (e.g. because of product modifications). The desired performance features of the products must therefore be agreed on a case-by-case basis on their purchase.

Although SYSKRON always strives to keep the SYSKRON Website free of viruses, SYSKRON does not guarantee freedom from viruses. Before downloading information, the user must take appropriate security precautions and install a virus scanner for their own protection and in order to prevent viruses on the SYSKRON Website.
