4. rights of use of content

4.1 The user who places content in the service grants EBI gUG transferable simple, spatially and temporally unlimited rights of use to the content to the extent necessary for the operation of the service.

4.2 Against this background, the user particularly grants EBI gUG the right to make the relevant content technically available to the service for retrieval and to make the necessary reproductions (saving on the servers etc.). Furthermore, the user grants EBI gUG the right to edit the contents in order to be able to present them better on the website. Furthermore, EBI gUG has the right to make the contents publicly accessible within the framework of the service, to send and otherwise publicly reproduce the contents, whereby this also includes in particular making the contents accessible or sending by transferring the contents to fixed or mobile terminals of other users within the framework of automated subscription services (push services) or retrieval services (pull services) (e.g. via podcasting, RSS feed, Atom feed, XML interface or other technologies). The right to broadcast is understood to include, in particular, the right to reproduce content in the service by continuous transmission of the data (streaming), including the possibility of arranging the stream in such a way that the data broadcast can be stored by the recipient.

5. commercial use / other improper behaviour

5.1 The Service is intended for private use only. Use for commercial and/or business purposes is not permitted. This applies in particular to the offering of goods or services of any kind against payment or the invitation to submit a corresponding offer, and the naming of value-added service numbers (in particular 0900 numbers) or value-added SMS numbers (Premium SMS) within the scope of the Service. This prohibition applies in the same way in the relationship between users, provided that the communication in question is made using the Service and its functions, as well as to the advertising of products and services offered by third parties against payment.

5.2 Furthermore, the User may not use any automatic or manual procedures to read, store, process, change, forward or otherwise misuse data from the Service. No e-mails may be intercepted.

6. Newsletter / Advertising

On explicit request EBI gUG sends the user an e-mail newsletter to his e-mail address at appropriate intervals, which contains editorial information from and about the offer of EBI gUG (e.g. that a new basic income is drawn by lot). Furthermore, EBI gUG reserves the right to inform the user by e-mail about its own products and offers of third parties. The user has the possibility to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time, for example by choosing the corresponding function in the newsletter itself or by sending an e-mail to info@ubi4all.eu.

7. warranty and liability of the user/release with regard to illegal content

7.1 The user guarantees to EBI gUG that he/she is entitled and in a position to transfer the rights to the extent determined by clause 6. The user further guarantees towards EBI gUG that he/she will not place any content in the service whose subject matter or content violates clauses 4, 5 and 7.

7.2 The user is solely responsible for all content posted by him/her as well as for the existence of any legal positions required for this. EBI gUG does not check the contents posted by the user.

Any further claims for damages by EBI gUG remain unaffected.

8 Liability of EBI gUG

EBI gUG is basically liable according to the legal regulations. However, two restrictions apply: If damages to the user result from the loss of data, EBI gUG is not liable for this insofar as the damages would have been avoided by regular and complete back-up of all relevant data by the user. In the case of only slightly negligent actions or omissions, EBI gUG's liability is also excluded for contract-untypical or unforeseeable damages, provided the damage does not affect life, body or health.

9. vicarious agents

EBI gUG reserves the right to use third parties to fulfil contractual obligations.

10. breaches of the terms of use

EBI gUG reserves the right to delete contents which are inadmissible according to these terms of use as well as to warn users after breaches of these terms of use in order to encourage users to comply with their obligations. Warnings and suspensions are communicated to the user in text form. In addition, an extraordinary termination of the user relationship may be pronounced.

11. termination of the user agreement

11.1 The user relationship can be terminated by the user at any time, by EBI gUG with a notice period of two weeks. Both parties reserve the right to terminate the contract without notice for good cause. Each termination requires text form, i.e. at least one e-mail.

11.2 After termination of the contract all user data will be deleted, unless storage is required for legal reasons. A reactivation is therefore not possible.

11.3 If EBI gUG declares extraordinary termination to the user, the user may not re-register for the service without the consent of EBI gUG.

C. Conditions for supporters

1. principles

1.1 EBI gUG mediates donations of supporters to the recipients of basic income (beneficiaries) and collects donations for the realisation of its organisational purposes.

1.2 All payments of the supporters (one-time payments, current payments) into the "pot for basic income" are administered by EBI gUG in trust and are used on behalf of the donors exclusively for the payment of unconditional basic income to the beneficiaries.

1.3 Donations are used by EBI gUG exclusively for the realisation of its purposes.

2. provision on the use of payments of the supporters

2.1 Supporters can decide whether their one-off or ongoing payments are to be granted as a donation for the purposes of EBI gUG or as a gift to the basic income pot, or how a payment is to be divided between the two purposes.

2.2 In the absence of a provision on the use, EBI gUG is entitled to collect up to 50% of the payment as a donation. In case of payments of 1.000 € and more EBI gUG will ask the supporter how the payment is to be used, if contact can be established.

3. payments into the pot for basic income

3.1 Payments into the pot for basic income are made by the supporter with the condition and instruction that EBI gUG administers these funds, together with all other payments into the pot for basic income, in trust and separately from its other assets for the supporters and forwards them to recipients of Unconditional Basic Income as donations by the supporters. The transfer is anonymous. EBI gUG will neither disclose the names of the donors to the beneficiaries nor the names of the beneficiaries to the donors.

3.2 The supporters authorise EBI gUG to select the recipients of their donations from the applicants. The selection is currently made by drawing lots.

3.3 The supporters authorise EBI gUG to determine the amount of the donations. At present, basic income of 9.600 € per recipient, payable in 12 monthly instalments of 800 € each, is drawn by lot.

3.4 When forwarding the donations, the payments received first are considered to be used first (first-in, first-out) and distributed equally to all recipients of the respective forwarding.

3.5 The supporters waive claims for repayment of payments not yet forwarded to the basic income pot. If EBI gUG finally stops granting unconditional basic income, a remaining balance of the funds administered in trust, which is smaller than the amount of a last granted basic income, can be allocated to EBI gUG to pursue its organisational purposes.

3.6 Proof of proper use

EBI gUG will have the proper administration and use of the funds in the basic income pot audited by an auditor and will publish the audit result in its annual report.

4. donations

Donations to EBI gUG will be used exclusively for the statutory purposes. Upon request the donors will receive a donation receipt ("donation certificate"). For donations for forwarding to recipients of basic income no donation receipt can be issued.

4.5 There is no legal entitlement to payment of Unconditional Basic Income and no notification of the prize is required.

5 Premature termination of the raffle

5.1 EBI gUG reserves the right to cancel or terminate a raffle at any time without prior notice. EBI gUG makes use of this possibility in particular if for technical reasons (e.g. viruses in the computer system, manipulation or errors in the hardware and/or software) or for legal reasons a proper execution of the raffle cannot be guaranteed. If such a termination was caused by the behaviour of a participant, EBI gUG can demand compensation for the damage caused from this person.

5.2 Fulfilment and compensation claims of the participant in case of premature termination of the lottery are excluded.
