These general terms of contract regulate the rights and obligations of the online use of the database portal DrugBasePlus between Wissenschaftliche Verlagsgesellschaft Stuttgart as provider and the customer.

2. Access to the online database portal

The Customer shall be granted access to the online products selected by him within the protected area of drubase.plus by means of remote data transmission and using the access code and password provided to him.

Customers, authorities or other institutions connected to the Internet with static IP address can agree with the provider to connect to the online database portal by IP check.

The Customer is obliged to keep the access codes and passwords secret and to prevent any misuse by third parties. Furthermore, he shall ensure that all users working in his company or institution also comply with this obligation.

3. Further obligations of the customer

3.1 The Customer is responsible for creating all technical requirements in order to be able to use the services of the DrugBasePlus database portal (for example, provision and setup of hardware, operating system software, Internet connection, current browser software, etc.). Upon request, the Provider shall inform the Customer about the browser to be used in each case. In case of further development of the database portal and other technical components of the system by the provider, the customer is responsible for making the necessary adjustments to the hardware and software he uses. In order to be able to use the DrugBasePlus database portal without any problems, it is assumed that the time and time zone of the computers used by the Customer are up-to-date and correctly set and that the Customer's system accepts the cookies transmitted by the Provider's server. It is the responsibility of the customer to make the appropriate settings.

3.2 The Customer is obligated to take the necessary precautions to secure its system. This includes in particular the use of up-to-date protection software to defend against computer viruses. The Provider shall not be liable for virus damage that could have been avoided by means of such software.

4. Scope of services, restrictions on use and the provider's right to make changes

4.1 The content to be provided to the Customer within the scope of its contract shall be specified in the User Agreement. The database portal DrugBasePlus is available 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.

This shall not apply to a) periods of unavailability of the DrugBasePlus database portal due to the fact that the necessary technical requirements for access to the online database to be created by the Customer are temporarily not given, b) periods of unavailability of the online database due to disruptions caused by errors in the data transmission network or within the responsibility of the data transmission company, c) periods of unavailability of the online database portal due to force majeure, in particular due to power failures, which are beyond the control of the Provider, d) periods of unavailability of the online database portal due to maintenance work of the Provider, which is usually carried out between 11 pm and 5 am.

The Provider warrants that no rights of third parties, such as copyrights, other property rights or intellectual property rights, will be infringed by the Authorized User through the use of the Licensed Publications (Database and its contents) set forth in this Agreement.

4.2 The Provider reserves the right to remove at any time, in whole or in part, from the provided Databases those parts for which it has lost the right to publish or which it believes to be in violation of copyright. Or that these are defamatory, obscene, illegal or otherwise offensive.

4.3 The nature and scope and content of the offered database portal DrugBasePlus are based on the currently applicable technical, legal and economic conditions for the data networks used. The place of data transmission is the interface between the server of Wissenschaftliche Verlagsgesellschaft Stuttgart and the Internet or other data networks. The responsibility of Wissenschaftliche Verlagsgesellschaft Stuttgart for data transmission ends at this point. The use of the licensed publications (databases and their contents) is at the user's own risk. Access to the online version of the licensed publications may be interrupted or incorrect under certain circumstances. The provider does not guarantee the completeness and correctness of the electronic data. The Wissenschaftliche Verlagsgesellschaft Stuttgart assumes no responsibility for any links to third-party websites contained in the licensed publications (database and its contents), neither for the accessibility of these websites at any time nor for their technical and content-related quality. The respective operator is responsible for these sites. Wissenschaftliche Verlagsgesellschaft Stuttgart reserves the right to deactivate or delete links of this kind.

4.4 Except as otherwise provided in these Terms of Use, Wissenschaftliche Verlagsgesellschaft Stuttgart makes no representations or warranties, including any warranties as to the design or accuracy of the information in the publications (databases and their contents), or as to its merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose, or as to its technical compatibility for use with computer systems of any kind. The licensed publications (databases and their contents) are provided "as is".

4.5 The provider shall not be liable to the authorized user for any damages or consequential damages that may result from the unavailability or use of the licensed publications (databases and their contents). The Wissenschaftliche Verlagsgesellschaft Stuttgart is only liable for damages caused by intent, gross negligence or deception with regard to the use of the publications. Notwithstanding the above, the Wissenschaftliche Verlagsgesellschaft Stuttgart's total liability shall not exceed the usage fee paid by the user within the subscription period in which the legal claim, loss or damage occurred. This limitation of liability under exclusion of certain damages remains valid regardless of the success or effectiveness of other legal remedies.

The above provisions shall also apply in favor of the Provider's employees and vicarious agents.

5. Remuneration and runtime

The remuneration to be paid by the customer shall be determined at the time of the order or its written confirmation. This also applies to the period of use.

The comprehensive copyright with all rights of use to the publications (database and its contents), in particular to the data processing program and the online help, is the exclusive property of Wissenschaftliche Verlagsgesellschaft Stuttgart. The publications and their contents are protected by copyright. The sole copyright to the publications remains with Wissenschaftliche Verlagsgesellschaft Stuttgart or the registered copyright holders.

The customer acknowledges that the database portal is a database work produced by the provider or a database in the sense of §§ 4 para. 2, 87 a para. 1 Copyright Act. The associated computer programs are subject to protection under §§ 69 a et seq. of the Copyright Act.

6. Rights of use of the customer

6.1 Within the scope of its order and its written confirmation, the Customer shall be granted the simple right to access or use the selected databases and their contents for the duration agreed in the order and its confirmation.

6.2 The use is limited to the number of users and the Customer's institution agreed in the registration/order and its written confirmation. The access authorization shall be confirmed by the Provider. The retrieved documents may only be used by the user for his/her own use. Any commercial transfer, in particular selling, renting, leasing or lending of the programs, the content or the documents is prohibited.

If the program permits the export of data for further processing in another program, the export and the associated use are permitted only for the end user's own needs. The data must be provided with the usual source references. The electronic storage of individual parts of the publications is permitted exclusively for the customer's own use. Any use of the work beyond this - in particular further reproduction or multiple use of the programs beyond the contractually agreed number of users - shall be liable to damages and may be punishable by law. This also includes the passing on and making available of the data to third parties and other commercial use of the complete data or parts thereof in connection with new programs or systems or print forms.

The provider is entitled to take technical measures to prevent use beyond the contractually permitted scope, in particular to install appropriate access barriers. The User may not use any devices, products or other means that serve to circumvent or overcome the Provider's technical measures. In the event of a violation by the User, the Provider shall be entitled to immediately block the Customer's access and to terminate the contract without notice. Further rights and claims of the Provider, in particular claims for damages, shall remain unaffected.

6.3 The legal right to make a copy pursuant to § 53 UrhG (German Copyright Act) is not covered by the User Agreement.
