I.  Usage relationship – establishment & termination

  1. By registering on our website, or by other means, in particular by clicking on the button “REGISTER” or similar on our website, which enables access to the services offered by POACHER, you agree that a legally binding contract is concluded between you and POACHER. The contract is for the use of our website and all services offered by us. If you do not agree with these terms or the conclusion of the contract, you should not register or otherwise use our services. The conclusion of the contract takes place with POACHER Sports GmbH. The contact details of POACHER Sports GmbH as well as further information about the commercial register data or names of the authorized representatives can be found in our imprint, or at the end of these terms and conditions.
  2. POACHER pursues the purpose of connecting amateur soccer players, coaches and clubs from all over Germany and would like to give players and clubs the opportunity to present themselves with a high-quality external image. So we offer clubs, companies and players the opportunity to get in touch. In addition, POACHER enables press institutions to publish news and content. They in turn enable players and clubs to consume news and content. The social network is the core application of our service.
  3. Registration is free of charge. The use of our services is also free of charge, unless you opt for our premium offer. For this see III. 7.
  4. During the registration it is obligatory that you give your first and last name completely and correctly. Furthermore, you must provide a valid e-mail address when registering. It is up to you whether you want to provide further information.
  5. The termination of the user relationship is possible at any time. You do not have to observe a cancellation period. The termination can be done by deleting the user account. Each party of the user contract is entitled to terminate the contract extraordinarily for an important reason. Such an important reason for POACHER also exists, if you violate the provisions of these terms and conditions despite a warning. POACHER may terminate the contract by blocking your user account. POACHER reserves the right to perform an identity check in case of your termination in order to prevent unauthorized terminations by third parties. Regarding POACHER’s premium offer see III. 7.
  6. Both as a visitor and as a registered user of our offers you are subject to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal data. This data collection is based on our privacy policy. We reserve the right to update the privacy policy on an ongoing basis. The currently valid version of our privacy policy applies.
  7. POACHER reserves the right to change the contract between you and POACHER, these terms and conditions or our privacy policy. If any material changes are made, we will notify you via our service or the email address you have provided. This notification is intended to give you the opportunity to review the changes made. You have the right to delete your account if you do not agree with the changes. If you continue to use our services after the changes have been made and you have been notified, you will be deemed to have accepted the updated terms as of the effective date.
  8. POACHER reserves the right to change these TOS at any time without giving reasons, unless this is unreasonable for you. POACHER will notify you of any changes to these TOS in a timely manner.

POACHER will inform you in the notification of your right to object and of the significance of the objection period. POACHER further reserves the right to change the TOU if the change is merely beneficial to you; if the change is purely technical or procedural, unless it has a material effect on you; if POACHER is required to bring the TOU into compliance with applicable law, in particular if the applicable legal situation changes; if POACHER is obliged to make a change due to a court judgment or an official decision against POACHER; or if POACHER introduces new services or other offers which were not previously part of POACHER’s services and which require a description of services in the GTC, unless the existing user relationship is adversely changed as a result. POACHER will inform about such changes of the GTC by e-mail, notices on www.poacher-sports.de, or other websites and services of POACHER.
