I. General Terms and Conditions

General notes


The advertising user is solely responsible for content and legality of his or her advertisement. The operator reserves his right to remove advertisements, especially if their content violates the general terms and conditions, laws or other governmental regulations. The advertising user is obliged to enter only accurate information. Band membership in particular must be indicated by a so-called band registration. Band entries are published in the ads section only if the band's members confirm their membership in this band. This requires free registration of all band members at Musicians-in-your-City. The central musicians' register distinguishes between musicians' entries and band entries. Musicians' entries are for personal use. Band entries are for band use. Musicians' entries may not be used to introduce one's own band and/or for recruiting suitable band members. Only so-called band entries may be used for this.

Um u.a. die Richtigkeit/Folgerichtigkeit und Stimmigkeit der Einträge (Profile) der jeweiligen Mitglieder sicherzustellen behält sich das zentrale Musikerregister bei Verdachtsfällen das Recht vor, Kommunikationsinhalte zu prüfen. Zur Durchführung dieser Massnahme willigen Sie ein, auf den Schutz des Fernmeldegeheimnisses zu verzichten. Diese Massnahmen sind erforderlich um eine höchstmögliche Qualität der Einträge und die Einhaltung der allgemeinen Geschäftsbedingungen/Regelwerk sicherzustellen.

Any details which make contact possible may not be entered in the comment field, i.e. phone number/email address/band name, amongst others. Dates/manufacturer/brand name may not be indicated. Use of filling characters/repeating characters is not allowed. Furthermore it must be ascertained that any text in the comment field is meaningful, significant and adequate. Details about a band, i.e. band experience, stage experience, membership, lineup may not be given in the comment field. These details can be given in special form fields in the process of creating an entry (e.g. during band registration). Violations shall lead to account deactivation.




Automatically generated emails and other emails
Members regularly receive automatically generated emails. Should a member object to automatically generated emails, he or she may delete the account.

Note on the voice finder
Singers and vocalists are subject to special admission requirements: A valid voice finder entry is required. Admission requirements, amongst others upload of a voice sample and a photograph, must be fulfilled within 48 hours. Only the own voice may be recorded in real time using a telephone and no other technical means. Singers and vocalists who fail to meet admission requirements are obliged to remove their entries immediately and to deregister the user account. Failure to meet admission requirements shall lead to deactivation of the account. Singers and vocalists who record unmotivated/bored voice samples shall also face deactivation of their account.

Details about band name protection
The central musicians' register provides a registering service for the protection of band names which allows bands/musicians to publish their band name at www.bandnameprotection.org. The central musicians' register does not decide or clarify a party's rights to a band name. Trademark owners whose rights are being violated by use of a band name are asked to contact the user responsible and settle matters directly. The central musicians' register shall only deactivate a user's account in well-founded and proven cases, e.g. in case of trademark infringement or legal violations. The central musicians' register can testify in a court case to the precise time of registration of a band name with band name protection. Testification shall only be made on condition of the band name being published at www.bandnameprotection.org. Registry with band name protection is valid for the duration of official membership. Protection of a band name does not only depend on its registry with band name protection, but in a court case the central musicians' register will be able to judicially testify to the exact time at which a band name must have been in use at the least. The central musicians' register is not an information centre and does not provide legal counselling. Only specialised lawyers and information centres should be consulted for this purpose.

Damages/disclaimer
The central musicians' register does not guarantee uninterrupted or faultless functioning. The central musicians' register shall not be held responsible for any consequences that may result from interruptions or programming errors. The central musicians' register shall not be liable for defects in computer systems or for annoyances or damages to advertising users of the internet service that are caused by its hosting provider or by browsing its online content (as well as any external sites linked to or advertisements).

Right of withdrawal
Users may withdraw their agreement within two weeks without giving reasons in written form (email). This time limits starts with the receipt of these instructions at the earliest. The withdrawal may be addressed to: see Imprint. Compensation regulation In case of a compensation regulation both parties' benefits must be returned. If the received service cannot be returned, or can only be partially returned, the party concerned must provide compensation. Otherwise, the user may avoid the obligation to provide compensation by not using the item as an owner and by refraining from doing anything to negatively affect its value. Your right of cancellation shall expire prematurely if the contract is completely fulfilled by both parties, at your express request, before you have exercised your right of cancellation.
Refunding will be made solely to bank accounts within the European Economic Community. Refunding requires the date and sender of the original transaction for verification. Furthermore complete bank details must be given for the refund to be sent: Recipient, account number, and SWIFT/IBAN.

II. Privacy policy

The German Data Protection Law (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz, BDSG) as well as the German Telecommunications Law (Telemediengesetz, TMG) are applicable. The central musicians' register is very concerned about protecting your personal data. Your personal data is explicitly not being sold or otherwise passed on or marketed.

    1. Data necessary for registration and other user data (e.g. support requests)
The following data is collected (amongst others): Username, password, email address, phone number, address, sex, date of birth, IP addresses, entries in musician's profile, support correspondence, warnings, google-conversion-tracking-cookie, server log files. In the so-called server log files date and time of request of website, the user's IP address, browser version, information about the operating system, referring page and bytes transferred as well as error codes (if applicable) are automatically recorded. Session cookies with an identification number and a security string (token) are used to facilitate communication between the server and ensure users.

2. Use of personal data
Personal data is collected for the purpose of founding, maintaining and handling of the contractual relationship, i.e. for the purpose of making contact between members, to prevent misuse/multiple registrations, to prevent reregistration of blocked users, amongst other things. These data, collected during registration, are made accessible to other user only on a limited scale. Your contact details and your entries are visible to everyone if you have PBL status. Otherwise only official members may access these data.
You consent to your data being made accessible to other network users. You consent to your contact details being automatically sent along with your emails to other members. You consent to your contact details being automatically sent to other members if you have PBL status. You consent to your data being used for the purpose of personalised advertising or mailings of special offers. Note: Personalised advertising has not been sent so far. Your consent is given to the central musicians' register (see imprint for address).

3. No distribution of personal data to third parties
The central musicians' register takes the protection of your data very seriously. Your personal data is explicitly not being sold or otherwise passed on, except in cases of a legal obligation to do so.

4. Data security
To protect the user's account from viruses and illegal access as far as possible, the central musicians' register employs several security systems to ensure an adequate level of protection. Since new viruses and other hacking devices are permanently being developed, a hundred-percent-level of protection from attacks cannot be guaranteed. The central musicians' register is not responsible for virus protection outside of the network or for any damages incurred by unknown viruses. For every attack a complaint shall be lodged.

5. Right to disclosure of personal user data
All users have the right to disclosure of their personal data that has been recorded. Users must enquire specifically, indicating the type of personal data they wish to be informed about. The enquiry must be sent by post to the address given in the imprint, accompanied by a certified copy of the user's identity card. The information will be sent by email to the user's email address.

6. Deletion, correction or deactivation
Users are instructed to correct, change or delete any of their own data when faulty or inapplicable of their own accord. The necessary technical options are made available to users. If users request a correction, change or deletion of their personal data, the following details/documents must be given/handed in to ensure correct attribution: Name, first name, email address, user name, full address, certified copy of identity card (back and front). The central musicians' register points out that for technical reasons deleted data may still remain in the system marked as deleted for up to four weeks, since final deletion is carried out during maintenance work once a month.

In the event of objection: data shall be deleted in accordance with the provisions of the Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz, abbr. BDSG) unless this conflicts with other legal time limits (e.g. in fulfilling legal time limits for storage of data in accordance with the German Tax Code (Abgabenordnung, abbr. AO) and the German Commercial Code (Handelsgesetzbuch, abbr. HGB)), regulatory or contractual time limits for storage of data. Objectors shall be put on a stop list in accordance with section 28 of the BDSG to ensure the validity of their objection.
