Terms of service

Last updated: November 17, 2016.
Since it is the primary language of this website the following terms are at the moment only available in English (a German version will be available soon).


Using this service

When using this website and/or any of our services you consent to the following terms.


Limitations of use and prohibited actions

You may use this site only in compliance with the law and for lawful purposes. You may not use this site for the purpose of harming or attempting to harm individuals or other parties in any way. You may not attempt to access accounts of other users without their permission and you may not try to access without authority, interfere with, damage or disrupt

  • any part of this site;
  • any equipment or network on which this site is stored;
  • any software used in the provision of this site;
  • any equipment or network or software owned or used by any third party.

Contributing and uploading material

Whenever you add content (links, files, images, videos, etc.) to this page you take full responsibility and liability for it and you grant us permission to reuse that content on our page or elsewhere for promotion and/or advertising purposes. You may only add content that you either own or for which you have explicit permission by the owner to share it on our page and therefore also grant us usage permissions as stated above. Giving credit is absolutely not sufficient to comply with these terms. You must under no circumstance knowingly transmit any data, send or upload any material that contains viruses, Trojan horses, worms, time-bombs, keystroke loggers, spyware, adware or any other harmful programs or similar computer code designed to adversely affect the operation of any computer software or hardware. You must also not transmit, or procure the sending of, any unsolicited or unauthorised advertising or promotional material or any other form of similar solicitation (spam).


Account obligations

For the case that you sign up for a user account you agree that all account information you provide to us will be true, accurate, complete and current information, and that you will maintain and update your account information as needed throughout your use of the service to keep it accurate and current. Failure to provide accurate, current and complete account information may result in the suspension and/or termination of your account. You understand and agree that we may access, use, preserve and/or disclose your account information and content if legally required to do so or if we have a good faith belief that such access, use, disclosure, or preservation is reasonably necessary to:

  • comply with legal process or request;
  • enforce these terms of service, including investigation of any potential violation thereof;
  • detect, prevent or otherwise address security, fraud or technical issues;
  • protect the rights, property or safety of this service, its users or the public as required or permitted by law.

Where we give you (or where you choose) a password which enables you to access certain parts of this site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.


Third party services

An essential part of our service is the integration of third party services (Facebook, Youtube, Vimeo, Spotify, Soundcloud, Google, etc.) especially for authentication and widgets (embedded code). We take all reasonable effort to verify the correct functioning and legality of those services at all times, but do not take any responsibility for it since we are not in control of them. See also the related section in our privacy policy.


Linking our page

You may link to this website, especially event pages and host profile pages, provided you do so in a way that is fair and legal and does not damage our reputation or take advantage of it, but you must not establish a link in such a way as to suggest any form of association, approval or endorsement on our part where none exists. We reserve the right to demand removal of links to this website without further reasoning.


Links to other pages

Where our site links to content on other pages provided by third parties, these links are provided for your information only. We have no control over those contents and do not take responsibility for them or for any loss or damage that may arise from your use of them.


Privacy and cookies

By using this website you consent to our privacy policy and cookie use.

  • requesting support regarding the use of this service;
  • expressing interest in selling event related services through our page;

You must however under no circumstance use the provided contact details for advertising purposes or in order to sell your own services to us. Also, you must never send us messages or emails generated by an automated system. We reserve the right to invoke legal action against any such attempt.


Indemnification

You agree to defend, indemnify and hold our brand, its affiliates, subsidiaries, directors, officers, employees, agents, partners and licensors harmless from any claim or demand, including reasonable attorneys' fees, made by a third party, relating to or arising from:

  • any content you submit, post, transmit, or otherwise make available through the service;
  • your use of the service;
  • any violation by you of these terms of service;
  • your violation of any rights of another service.

This obligation shall survive the termination or expiration of these terms of service and/or your use of the service. You acknowledge that you are responsible for all use of this service through your account, and that these terms of service apply to any and all usage of your account. You agree to comply with these terms of service and to defend, indemnify and hold harmless our entity from and against any and all claims and demands arising from usage of your account, whether or not such usage is expressly authorized by you.

All such rights are reserved. You may print off one copy, and may download extracts, of any page(s) from this site for your personal reference.
