For further information about the services see the Description of Services in Section 3.

Section 2 Amendments to the Terms of Membership and Use

The Service Provider reserves the right to amend these Terms of Membership and Use at any time with effect also for existing contractual arrangements. The Service Provider will inform you of such amendments at least 30 calendar days before the amendments are due to take effect. As long as you do not object within 30 days of the receipt of the notice and continue to use the services after the expiration of the cancellation period, the amendments shall be considered as agreed to from the time the 30-day period expires. If you object to this the contract will continue on its existing terms. In the amendment notice the Service Provider shall make reference to your right to object and to the consequences.

II. Services and content on the Careers Website

Section 3 Range and availability of services

(1) On the careers website the Service Provider provides you with different information and other services for temporary use. Such services may e.g. make available data, documents, articles, photographic records and audio recordings, information, and other content (together “Content”).

The content and scope of these services will depend on the specific contractual arrangements and on the respective current functionality otherwise available on the careers website.

The services made available on the careers website are free of charge unless otherwise specified.

(2) The services available on the careers website may include services of third parties to which the Service Provider simply provides access. In order to use such services, which are in each case marked as third-party services, regulations may apply which differ from or supplement these Terms of Membership and Use, of which the Service Provider will make you aware in each case.

(3) A right to use of the services available on the careers website only exists within the framework of the Service Provider’s technical and operational capacity. The Service Provider will attempt to ensure its services may be used as far as possible free of interruption. However, temporary restrictions or interruptions may occur as a result of technical faults (such as e.g. power cuts, hardware and software errors, and technical problems with data lines).

Section 4 Alterations to services

The Service Provider is entitled at any time to make changes to the services offered free of charge on the careers website, to make new services available free of or subject to a charge, and to cease to provide free-of-charge services. In so doing the Service Provider will consider your legitimate interests.

Section 5 Protection of content, responsibility for third party content

(1) The content available on the careers website is largely protected by copyright or other property rights and is in each case the property of the Service Provider, the other members, or other third parties who made the relevant content available. The compilation of the content as such is, where relevant, protected as a data bank or data base under Sections 4 (2) and 87a (1) of the German Copyright Act. You may only use this content in line with the Terms of Membership and Use and within the context prescribed by the careers website.

(2) The content available on the careers website is sourced partly from the Service Provider and partly from other members or other third parties. The content of members and of other third parties is together referred to further as “third party content”. The Service Provider does not check third party content for completeness, accuracy, or legality and therefore accepts no liability for and does not guarantee the completeness, accuracy, legality or up-to-dateness of third party content. This also applies in relation to the quality of the third party content and its suitability for a specific purpose and also to the extent this relates to third party content on externally linked websites.

All content on the careers website is third party content other than content marked with the Service Provider’s copyright notice.
