Marketplace - General Conditions of Use

Article 1 Scope
The General Conditions of Use apply to the posting of material (e.g., images, text) in the Marketplace section (hereinafter „Marketplace“) on our www.biogas.org website. By posting material you accept these General conditions of Use and agree to abide by them.

Article 2 Object and procedure
  • We provide a free entry form for your offers and queries under the two headings „Classified ads“ and „Project cooperation“. The material posted in the entry form will be activated by us within three working days and can then be viewed in the Marketplace via the internet. We have no influence of any kind on the contents of the offers or inquiries posted in the Marketplace. We are neither the offerer nor a mediator for the contents posted. Any contract initiated in connection with an offer or inquiry is concluded and performed without our involvement.
  • To use the Marketplace, please complete the input fields, check the entries and confirm them and our General Terms of Use by clicking on the button „Post ad“ and checking the box „I have read and agree to the General Conditions of Use“. An e-mail with the data you have entered will be sent to you, by which a contract for using the Marketplace comes about. Users have no claim to the conclusion of a licence agreement.
  • You can offer substrates or plant components under „Classified ads“. The ads can be viewed by all members of the German Biogas Association.
  • If you look for a project or sales partner, manufacturer, planner or investor, you can place an ad in „Project cooperation“. The ads can be viewed by all business members (planners and manufacturers of biogas plants or parts of such plants) of the German Biogas Association

Article 3 Granting of rights

If you post copyrighted or otherwise protected material in the Marketplace, you grant us the right of using, editing, copying and disseminating, publishing and mailing this material without any restriction of time, space or content. You are responsible to see that the contents you post do not infringe rights held by others or any law or can be regarded as objectionable or defamatory. For the case of infringement of law you release us from any third-party claim, notably also from cost incurred by us in connection with the defence against such claims in or out of court. We are entitled at any time to remove the content or part of content posted by you without assigning reasons.

Article 4 Termination
  • You can terminate use of the Marketplace at any time without assigning reasons. In that case, please use the link in the confirmation mail to delete your material from the Marketplace. There is no other way of the early termination of your offer.

  • We exclude any liability in case an offer or inquiry does not comply with the statutory requirements.
  • Our liability for violation of contract or for tort is limited to intent and gross negligence. We are liable for cases of slight negligence exclusively for damage to life, limb or health or breach of a cardinal obligation. In that case, our liability is limited to the typical damage that was foreseeable at the time of use.
