Terms of use

§ 1 General terms and conditions/ procedure

The NECE Database contains the names, contact addresses and information on the key activities and publications of experts and organisations dealing with citizenship education in Europe. The following information, which will be made accessible to the users of the database, must be provided before admission: Name of the expert or organisation, place of residency or work, and E-mail address. If desired, the E-mail address can be kept anonymous. The provision of biographical information and details of postal address, telephone- and fax numbers is voluntary. The bpb retains the right to accept or reject an application. All other rights and duties arise from the terms of use. They are an integral part of this agreement, and both parties acknowledge their cognizance and validity. The experts/ organisations admitted to the database agree to make their name, contact address and information about their key activities and publications available to the database users.

§ 2 Password

Please keep your password confidential. By entering your password, you will gain personal access to your data and will be able to change or delete your entries. The password is no longer valid when the expert or organisation has deleted all the data. Data may be deleted by the bpb for reasons specified in § 7.

§ 3 Contents of the database

Information about the experts/ organisations may only be published in the NECE Database if their content fulfils the intended purpose. It is not permitted to publish content that is not relevant to the themes and goals of this database. The bpb reserves the right to reject applications for admission. Content, nature, and theme of entries shall conform to applicable laws of the Federal Republic of Germany.

§ 4 Area of application

The agreement made herewith shall be limited to adding personal and professional data to the NECE database. Further claims and legal relationships are not justified. The bpb commits itself to use information within the NECE Database and to observe applicable data protection laws.

§ 5 Update/ extension of expert database

The NECE Database is regularly updated and extended. The experts/ organisations will be asked in regular intervals by the database administrator to confirm or update their data. If the editors receive no reply after the third request, following a period of 18 months, they may reserve the right to delete the entries in question. (See § 7)

§ 6 Cancellation/ deletion of entries

After being admitted to the NECE Database, the experts/ organisations shall retain the right to delete their entries at any time. A deletion of the entire entry shall be deemed equivalent to a termination of this agreement. The allotted password shall no longer be valid. The bpb shall have the right to delete entries, either partially or entirely, at any time, should the experts/ organisations infringe on a law with their publication or should they misuse their admission to the database for purposes other than those agreed upon. (See § 3 of the terms of use). Should the bpb delete an entry or terminate the agreement, the expert/ organisation concerned will be immediately informed in writing of the action and the reasons behind it.

§ 7 Final provisions

In the event of a dispute, German law shall apply.

§ 8 Commencement of agreement

The agreement shall become valid when the expert/ organisation has agreed to the terms of use and has provided the necessary data. The bpb will inform the expert/ organisation of his or their admission to the NECE Database via E-mail.
