Terms of Use for Dealer Recommendation

As at 08/2010

The following Terms of Use apply to provision of the “Dealer recommendation” function by Hansgrohe India:

1. Services

We provide the users of our website with the “Dealer recommendation” function. The user can use the showroom locator function to find a dealer and then send the dealer’s address details to selected recipients by e-mail or text message. In doing so, the user independently enters the recipients and their address details (e-mail addresses or mobile telephone numbers). We then generate the contents of the message (dealer's address details and necessary legal and company information). The user cannot change or add to the text if sent by text message. If sent by e-mail, the user can add contents to the subject line and the message’s text. The message is non-encrypted when sent; it shall not be sent if the recipient sends us a request to this end.

2. Our Responsibilities

Providing the “Dealer recommendation” function is a voluntary and free service on our part, which can be terminated or restricted at any time. We shall not check the accuracy of the recipient address details entered by the user and cannot guarantee the availability of the function or that e-mails or text messages will be successfully sent and received.

3. Responsibility of the User

The user confirms that the recipient has agreed to receive a message. 

With the exception of the dealer address details provided by us, the user shall be solely responsible for the contents selected and sent by him/her, his/her representatives or other people with access to his/her access details. If the user can add to or create contents, he/she must not breach current laws in doing so. This shall particularly include not distributing any contents that are illegal, offensive or infringe copyrights. The “dealer recommendation” function must not be used to send mass e-cards or any other form of advertising or marketing messages or chain letters. 

4. User’s Liability for his/her Actions

If the user breaches his/her contractual or legal obligations, he/she shall be liable to us in accordance with the statutory provisions. 

The user shall also indemnify us against all third-party claims made against us on the grounds of a breach of third-party rights through his/her use. If the user breaches his/her obligations, applicable law or moral standards, we retain the right to temporarily or permanently terminate the rights of use.

Privacy Policy

If you use our “Dealer recommendation” function, we will record and use the e-mail addresses, mobile telephone numbers and names that you enter for the sender and recipients, as well as any message entered by you, in accordance with statutory provisions and our Privacy Policy.
