RIGHTS IN THE PLATFORM / SOFTWARE
The Platform and the Software contain elements and content which do or may enjoy protection (pursuant to e.g. Copyright and Allied Copyright Law, Trademark Law, Patent / Utility Model Law, Design Law, Competition Law or other laws) for the benefit of Provider or co-operation partners of Provider (with the exception of possible open-source elements referred to above). Provider and its co-operation partners expressly reserve(s) any and all rights in and to the same. Any use of these elements and content (or parts thereof), extending beyond what is necessary for using the Platform or Software by User under normal circumstances, is inadmissible without the prior written consent of Provider. This applies in particular, but without limitation, to the Software (excluding possible open-source elements), names, characters, GINNS (as described below) trademarks and other marks/signs, content, layout, design and interface of the Platform, databases, videos, photographs, texts and graphics.
using THE PLATFORM, user-content
The Platform allows users to activate animated content (like figurines, characters etc, called “GINNS”) by scanning particular markers (QR-Codes, symbols or similar) which appear in e.g. print-materials, advertisements, posters other carriers etc (as determined by Provider). These GINNS may be (but not necessarily are in any given case) linked to special content, benefits, promotions or discounts (as described in proximity to the respective marker to be scanned) for the User which can be redeemed by e.g. taking a photo / video with the GINN and showing the photo / video to an advertising or co-operation partner of Provider.
When User makes a photo / video containing the GINN, it might be the case that in the background of said photo / video other persons, objects or otherwise become visible. Provider has no influence thereon and accepts no responsibility or liability in this respect – all such photos / videos made by User are considered user-generated-content (“User Content”).
User hereby acknowledges that such User-Content may potentially be perceived by an unlimited, indeterminable number of persons worldwide when distributed (“shared”). User-Content may also be further distributed (“shared”) and made publicly available by third parties through other applications, in particular social-media platforms.
User bears the sole responsibility for its User-Content (including its title/denomination, description and comments, content as well as relating information). Provider does not embrace User-Content and does not assume any responsibility, warranty or liability for the lawfulness, correctness, completeness or accuracy of User-Content or for freedom from third-party-rights. User-Content is in particular not subject to any pre-examination or categorisation in terms of legality or content by Provider.

User-Content must not threaten, disparage, denounce, insult and/or put into an incorrect, inappropriate and/or misleading context, any user, persons/group of persons, religions/religious communities, entities, trademarks, products or similar. In particular, the GINNS must not be put in a context violating any of the aforementioned. The same applies to descriptions left in the context of User-Content or sent with User-Content.
Provider is under no obligation to examine User-Content in respect of its lawfulness but reserves the right (where technically possible) to immediately delete or block User-Content (as well as similar infringements) so that the same cannot be perceived within the Platform, should any third party assert an infringement (of rights) and/or claim own rights in and to the User-Content (“notice-and-takedown”). Provider is not obligated to verify the entitlement of such third party and/or the asserted infringement (of rights). User is not entitled to any claims against Provider on the basis of such measures.
User hereby guarantees, represents and warrants, that:
User-Content has been generated and created by User, has not been copied and User holds all necessary rights in respect of the User-Content provided (including its content, title/denomination and description but not in respect of the GINN) and has the power and authority to grant the rights hereunder to the extent that the User-Content can be used by Provider and addressee(s) accordingly;
