1. General terms
Upon registration with the BabyClub, the user must be of legal age and must enter and send the required data truthfully. This is assured by the user. As there is no entitlement to registration, the operator has the right to refuse registration without giving reasons. Any later changes to user data must be provided unsolicited by the user, by updating their online profile. Each user may only register once and only have one user profile. The operator is not responsible for any identity fraud of individual users or for any inaccurate or out-of-date information.
Following confirmation of successful data entry, the user has the possibility to make use of all current offers in their chosen field of registration. This also applies to areas to which the user alone has access. The operator reserves the express right to change, extend or cancel offers and services at any time without prior warning.
The user chooses an individual user name and password at the time of registration with which they can gain access to the restricted areas. They themselves are responsible for this data and should take care that it is not misused. The operator can accept no liability for this. Should the password be lost or misuse is suspected, the operator shall be informed immediately in writing. The user shall be liable for any abuse by a third party, as long as they cannot prove that they are not in any way responsible for the misuse. The user name can, in principle, be chosen freely. However, it must not infringe on current German law. It is especially forbidden to infringe on the rights of third parties, to use unethical names or codes as names, or to use names with extremist content, even if the disputed content is not recognisable to outside parties. Commercial use of these services is also prohibited.
The HiPP group of companies regularly sends e-mails to registered users, relevant for their baby’s age. These e-mails (newsletters and regular pregnancy and parents’ letters) can be unsubscribed by e-mail at any time by the user, without stating a reason.
3. Special regulations for competitions
Participation in the various competitions is only possible for adult users. There is no legal obligation for the competitions to be held; there are no cash alternatives to the prizes unless otherwise stated. Employees of the HiPP group of companies and their relatives are not allowed to take part. If the competition is held with a cooperation partner, then the employees of the partner company and their relatives are also excluded from participation. The entry data is not sold or lent to third parties, or otherwise diverted from its intended use.
4. Special regulations for photo competitions
Users who enter pictures declare that they have the unrestricted right of use to the images, and agree that they may stay online for the dureation of the contest together with the additional data provided by the user. Participating users agree that we may publish the winners’ first names and first letters of their surnames or their correspondingly chosen data; the winners’ data may be passed on to the competition partner in order for the prizes to be delivered. Third parties will not receive any additional data. The photos may not be unethical, show the depicted persons in any inappropriate way or infringe in any way on current law. In particular, insinuating, extremist and offensive images of any kind are strictly prohibited. The operator is under no obligation to publish any pictures. Non-compliance will lead to the immediate disqualification of the user and, if necessary, criminal prosecution. Further rights to use the images are not given and remain entirely with the user who has entered them.
