The user’s contract for the use of the services at Die-Bibel.de is with the Deutsche Bibelgesellschaft.
The user can refer to these conditions of use at any time, including after having entered into a contract, at the ‘conditions of use’ link at Die-Bible.de. They can be downloaded, saved and printed.
1.1 Die-Bibel.de offers registered users a web portal for reading the Bible and for creating user-specific settings, along with the possibility of making donations. Registered users can also order goods through the Die-Bibel.de online shop, for which specific terms and conditions, cancellation policies and customer information are available.
1.2 Die-Bibel.de only makes user-supplied data and/or information available to other users as long as this data and/or information do not contravene legal requirements or these conditions of use. Die-Bibel.de is entitled to remove illegal content without prior notification.

2.4 By completing the registration process, the user is making an invitation to enter into a contract regarding the use of the services at Die-Bibel.de. Die-Bibel.de’s acceptance of this invitation is signified by activating the user’s account for the services at Die-Bibel.de.

2.7 It is not possible technically for Die-Bibel.de to be sure that a user registered at Die-Bibel.de is actually the person they claim to be. Die-Bibel.de therefore accepts no responsibility for the actual identity of a user.
3.1 The user is obliged to show only correct and clear information in their profile. However, the user may use any user name, as long as this does not infringe any privacy, copyright or related legislation.
3.2 The user must not undertake any activity designed to restrict the functionality of the infrastructure of the Die-Bibel.de web pages, in particular to overload them.
Die-Bibel.de reserves the right to make changes to the services offered on the web site or to offer alternative services.
5.1 The user is entitled to cancel their free membership at any time without giving a reason. Die-Bibel.de is also entitled to cancel free membership at any time without giving a reason. The cancellation must be made in writing or directly via the system.

A user’s failure to comply with legal requirements; a user’s contravention of their contractual obligations, especially those under clauses 2 and 3 of these conditions of use.
6.1 Die-Bibel.de is not responsible for the content of linked external web sites. Die-Bibel.de offers in particular no guarantee that this content is true, fulfills a particular purpose or can assist such a purpose.

Die-Bibel.de is aware that it is extremely important to users that all personal data supplied to Die-Bibel.de by its users are handled very sensitively. Die-Bibel.de therefore follows all relevant legal requirements regarding data protection (German data protection laws, European data protection directives and all other relevant data protection law). Details about how user data are handled are contained in Die-Bibel.de’s data protection clauses.
9.1 The contract and any changes to it must be in written form. There are no ancillary agreements in place.

Die-Bibel.de can send statements to users via email or by fax or letter to the addresses that the user has given as current contact data in their user account.
9.4 If individual clauses of these user conditions do not apply now, or cease to apply in the future, this does not affect the applicability of the other clauses. The partners to the contract are required to replace an inapplicable clause with an applicable one that is as close as possible in its content to the economic meaning and purpose of the inapplicable clause. This also applies to gaps in the contract.
9.5 The place of execution is the headquarters of the Deutsche Bibelgesellschaft in 70567 Stuttgart, Germany.
