License Agreement

THE COPYRIGHTED WORK OR OTHER PROTECTED SUBJECT MATTER (AS DESCRIBED BELOW) IS PROVIDED ON THE TERMS OF THIS CREATIVE COMMONS PUBLIC LICENSE ("CCPL" OR "LICENSE AGREEMENT"). THE PROTECTED SUBJECT MATTER IS PROTECTED BY COPYRIGHT AND/OR RELEVANT LAWS.

 

BY EXERCISING A RIGHT GRANTED THROUGH THIS LICENSE AGREEMENT TO THE PROTECTED SUBJECT MATTER YOU AGREE TO THE TERMS OF THE LICENSE WITH LEGALLY BINDING EFFECT. THE LICENSOR GRANTS YOU THE RIGHTS DESCRIBED HEREIN ON THE CONDITION THAT YOU CONSENT TO THE TERMS OF THIS CONTRACT.

1.         Definitions

a.         "Adaption" is defined as a translation or any other adaption of the work which is your personal intellectual creation. Free use of the work is not considered to be adaption.

c.          A "licensor" is defined as a natural or legal person that offers the protected subject matter on the terms of this license.

This also includes those compilations whose elements are systematically or methodically arranged and are accessible individually with the aid of electronic means or in any other manner (database works). A compilation is not considered adaption (as described above) in connection with this License.

e.         "You" means any natural or legal person who exercises the rights of use granted through this license and has not previously acted in breach of the terms of this license regarding the work or has received the licensor's express permission to exercise these rights of use granted through this license despite a previous breach.

f.          "Protected subject matter" is defined as the work or compilation or the protected item of a related right that is offered to you on the terms of this license.

g.         "Author" is defined as the natural person who created the work.

h.         A "related right" is defined as the right to copyrighted protected subject matter other than a work, for example a scientific edition, a posthumous work, a photograph, a database, a sound storage medium, a radio broadcast, a moving picture or a performance by a performing artist.

i.           "Work" is defined as a personal intellectual creation that is offered to you on the terms of this license.

2.      Copyright restrictions. This license shall not affect any authorizations whatsoever which arise from copyright restrictions, restrictions of the principle of exhaustion or other restrictions of exclusive rights of the holder of rights.

3.      Licensing. Under the terms of this License Agreement, the licensor grants you a royalty-free simple right of use without restriction in terms of time and territory (for the duration of the copyright or related right) to use the protected subject matter in the following manner:

a.         To exploit the protected subject matter in tangible form, in particular to duplicate, distribute and exhibit it.

b.         To play back the protected subject matter in intangible form in public, in particular to recite, perform and present it, make it accessible to the public, to broadcast it, to play it back using image and audio carriers and play it back in radio broadcasts and by making it accessible to the public.

c.          To record the protected subject matter on image or sound carriers, to make photographs thereof, to rebroadcast it and to exploit it to the extent named in a. and b.

d.         To adapt the protected subject matter or to rearrange it in any other manner and to publish the adapted work and to exploit it to the extent named in a. to c.

The rights of use named may be exercised for all known types of use. The named rights of use include the right to carry out modifications to the work which are technically necessary in order to exercise the rights of use for all types of use. In particular, this includes adjustment to other media and to other data formats.

4.      Restrictions. The rights of use according to no. 3 are expressly granted solely on the following terms:

a.         You may only reproduce or distribute the protected subject matter or play it back in public in compliance with the terms of this license and you must always enclose a copy or the complete Internet address in the form of the Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) of this license when you reproduce or distribute the protected subject matter or play it back in public. You may not offer or demand any terms of contract that amend or restrict the terms of this license or the rights granted through them. You may not sublicense the protected subject matter. You must leave all notices unchanged that draw attention to this license and the exclusion of liability. You may not provide the protected subject matter with any technical protective measures which monitor access or use of the protected subject matter in a manner that is inconsistent with the terms of this license. The restrictions named also apply in case the protected subject matter is a part of a compilation; however, they do not require that the compilation as a whole is made a subject of this license. If you create a compilation, you must - insofar as practical - remove any indication of a licensor or an author from the compilation if you are requested to do so by the licensor or the author. If you adapt the protected subject matter, you must - insofar as practical - remove any indication of a holder of rights if you are requested to do so by the holder of rights.

b.         You may only reproduce or distribute an adapted work or play it back in public in compliance with the terms of this license, a later version of this license with the same license elements as this license or a Creative Commons iCommons license containing the same license elements as this license (e.g. Attribution(s) - Non-commercial - Share Alike 2.0 Japan). You must always enclose a copy or the Internet address in the form of the Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) of this license or another license of the kind described in the preceding sentence if you reproduce or distribute the adapted work or play it back in public. You may not offer or demand any terms of contract that amend or restrict the terms of this license or the rights granted through them and you must leave all notices unchanged that draw attention to this license and the exclusion of liability. You may not provide the adapted work with any technical protective measures which monitor access or use of the adapted work in a manner that is inconsistent with the terms of this license. The restrictions named also apply in case the adapted work is a part of a compilation; however, they do not require that the compilation as a whole is made a subject of this license.

c.          You may not exercise the rights of use granted in no. 3 in any manner that primarily aims at or is oriented to gaining a business advantage or cash remuneration owed by contract. If you also receive protected subject matter in connection with the granted rights of use without there being any contractual obligation to do so, this shall not be considered a business advantage or cash remuneration owed by contract, unless a payment is made or cash remuneration is paid in connection with the exchange of the protected subject matter (e.g. file sharing).

d.         If you reproduce or distribute the protected subject matter or adapted work or a compilation or play it back in public, you must leave all the copyright notices for the protected subject matter unchanged and accept the copyright or ownership of rights in a form reasonable for your use thereof by stating the name (or the pseudonym if one is used) of the author or the holder of rights if it is stated. This also applies to the title of the protected subject matter if it is stated and - to a reasonable, practical extent - to the Internet address connected with the protected subject matter in the form of the Uniform Resource Identifier (URI), as stated by the licensor if this has been stated, unless this Internet address does not refer to the copyright notice or the license information on the protected subject matter. For adapted work, a notice must be shown of the manner in which the protected subject matter was adapted (e.g. "French translation of the … (work) by … (author)" or "The script is based on the work of …. (author)"). Such a notice can be provided in any reasonable manner, although in case of an adaption, a database or a compilation, the notice must at least be placed in the same position and be just as conspicuous as similar notices to other holders of rights.

e.         Although the rights of use granted in no. 3 may be exercised comprehensively, this permission is limited by law because the personal rights of the author and the performing artist whose legitimate intellectual and personal interests and standing or reputation may not be jeopardized by the protected subject matter being adversely affected beyond the legally permitted extent. 

5.      Warranty. Unless otherwise agreed in writing by the contracting parties, the licensor shall not provide any warranty for the rights granted except in the case where defects were fraudulently concealed. For defects of any other kind, in particular in case of the defective delivery of materializations of the protected subject matter, the warranty shall be based on the agreements that you made with the person who provided the protected subject matter to you outside this license - or if such agreements were not made - based on statutory provisions.

6.      Liability. In addition to the warranty named in no. 5, the licensor is only liable to you for intent and gross negligence.

7.      Expiry of the contract

a.         This License Agreement and the rights of use granted through it automatically end if you act in breach of any of the terms of contract. For natural and legal persons who have received an adaption, a database or a compilation from you on these terms of license, the license shall continue to apply, provided that these natural and legal persons comply with all terms of contract. Nos. 1, 2, 5, 6, 7 and 8 continue to apply in the event of the expiry of the contract.

b.         The license is granted for an indefinite period on the terms set out above (for the duration of the protected right). However, the licensor reserves the right to use the protected subject matter on other terms of license or to end its own sharing of the protected subject matter at any time, provided that such acts do not serve to revoke this license (or any other licensing which was carried out or must be carried out on the basis of this license) and this license remains effective until it ends on the preconditions named above.

8.      Final provisions

a.         Each time when you reproduce or distribute the protected subject matter or play it back in public the licensor offers the acquirer a license for the protected subject matter on the same terms of contract on which it granted you the license.

b.         Each time when you reproduce or distribute an adapted work or play it back in public the licensor offers the acquirer a license for the original protected subject matter on the same terms of contract on which it granted you the license.

c.          Should a provision of this License Agreement be invalid, this shall not affect the validity of the remaining terms of license and a provision which most closely approximates the purpose intended with invalid provision shall replace the invalid provision.

d.         Nothing shall be interpreted in such a manner that a provision of this License Agreement is waived or a breach of contract is approved as long as such waiver or such approval is not available in writing and is not signed by the waiving or approving contracting party.

e.         This License Agreement constitutes the complete agreement between the contracting parties for the protected subject matter. It does not provide any additional agreements or verbal arrangements for the protected subject matter. The licensor is not bound to any additional arrangements that might arise from any agreement with you. The License Agreement cannot be amended without a mutual written agreement between the licensor and you.

Consequences of revocation

In the event of an effective revocation, the services received on both sides and any benefits which may have been accrued (e.g. interest rates) shall be returned. If you cannot return the service rendered entirely or partially or only in a deteriorated condition, you must compensate us for lost value in this respect. This may mean that you have to fulfil the contractually agreed payment obligations for the period up to the time of revocation. Obligations for the reimbursement of payments must be fulfilled within a period of 30 days. The deadline for you commences when you send your declaration of revocation, and for us on its receipt. Important notice: your right of revocation expire at an earlier date if the contract has been fulfilled in its entirety by both parties at your explicit request before you have exercised your right of revocation.

 

Special notes

Your right of revocation will no longer be effective if the contract has been fulfilled in its entirety by both parties on your explicit request before you have exercised your right of revocation.
