Terms of use

These terms of use ("contract") are understood to be the contact between you and Gira Giersiepen GmbH & Co. KG (hereafter referred to as "we", "our" and "us"). This contract governs both your and our rights and duties regarding the use of the HomeServer/FacilityServer portal.

In the course of the continual development of our devices and Internet services, we occasionally incorporate additional functions and features. This means that the contract and guidelines must be modified to take these adjustments into account. For this reason, modifications to this contract and these guidelines may be made at any time and then published on our website, thus taking legal effect. Except for the case described below, all modified conditions take effect 30 days after their initial publication on our website. Future modifications are published on the "Updated Usage Guidelines" page, which can be accessed via the "Updated Usage Guidelines" link on the "Account Overview" page when you have logged on to the Gira HomeServer.gira.de or FacilityServer.gira.de portal. You can also configure your settings in such a way that you will be notified via e-mail of all updates to the usage guidelines.

1. Entitlement

You must register for a basic account in order to use our service. For this purpose, click the "Registration" option under HomeServer.gira.de or FacilityServer.gira.de. Alternatively, you can send Gira the registration form included with the device via post or fax.
Registration can be carried out during start-up or at a later date. You can repeat the procedure at any time to change your personal registration data. Whenever your data are changed, you must reconfirm that they are correct via an activation link in an e-mail that is sent whenever your registration data are changed.

Our service is available only to individual persons or companies permitted to conclude legally binding contracts based on valid legislation. For this reason our service is not available to people under 18 years old.

We reserve the right to cease provision of our service, change requirements for your use of the service and/or to terminate this contract with you at any time by informing you via e-mail. Termination of the contract will take immediate effect if the reason is important. Otherwise, the termination period is 14 days from the day of notification.

2. Services

The Internet services provided include access to the user interface of the HomeServer or FacilityServer.

Additional separate conditions may apply to individual areas of the HomeServer.gira.de and FacilityServer.gira.de portal. When registering for these areas, users are expressly notified of the conditions applicable for these areas. Those specialised conditions then precede these conditions for use of such services.

We reserve the right to recall parts of our online services and the agreed-upon modules at any time if we are not or no longer authorised to grant user rights pursuant to this contract and if we are not expected to acquire the rights for further use.

3. Enforcement and delivery channel

Our service is provided via the Internet transport medium. The communication protocols used here include HTTP and HTTPS (HTTP via Secure Socket Layer).

4. Warranty

We are committed to doing everything possible to ensure the accuracy and reliability of our online services. We will not be held liable by you or third parties in case of errors, interruptions, delays, incorrect data or messages or other malfunctions or their cause(s). We will only be liable for wilful and grossly negligent causes of damage, irrespective of the legal and contractual grounds.

5. Data protection

The protection of your private sphere and, accordingly, your personal data while using our online services is of utmost importance to us. For this reason, we have explained our methods of handling your personal data in our declaration of data protection.

6. Other provisions

6.1. These terms of use and the relationship of the user to us are subject to German law only.

6.2. Should one or more of these terms of use be or become ineffectual, the validity of the remaining conditions will not be affected.
