The "Docuware Process Planner" (hereinafter also referred to as “PP Application”) is operated by DocuWare GmbH, Therese-Giehse-Platz 2, 82110 Germering, Germany (hereinafter referred to as "DW" or "We") as a web-based application.
1. Scope of Application/Non-remuneration
- With the PP Application, DW offers an efficient, scalable process planning and diagram application that You can easily operate thanks to an intuitive user interface. Your process representations, diagrams, etc. ("Your data") are not saved by us, but have to be saved by You at the end of your respective session.
The PP application is open for use to both consumers ("Verbraucher") within the meaning of § 13 BGB (Bürgerliches Gesetzbuch (German Civil Code) and entrepreneurs ("Unternehmer") within the meaning of § 14 BGB.
- A consumer is any natural person who concludes a legal transaction for purposes which can predominantly neither be attributed to its commercial nor its freelance professional activity.
- An Entrepreneur is a natural or legal person or a partnership with legal capacity, which acts in the exercise of its commercial or independent professional activity when concluding a legal transaction.
2. Registration / Availability
- The PP Application can only be used in its entirety after a successful login to the PP Application and the creation of a personal customer account. The registration takes place via the PP Application under the button "Register". Within the scope of your first-time registration, we draw your attention to the possibility of registration via providers of so-called single sign-on procedures. If you wish to use this option, you will be forwarded directly to the provider. Your authentication will then be carried out directly with the provider and on the basis of the terms and conditions of use that you concluded with the provider when you registered with them. Registration by other third parties (in particular third parties who register individual persons commercially with various telemedia service providers) is not permitted.
- Your registration will take place via a registration form set up for this purpose. First You have to create a new customer account. To do this, we only ask You to enter your e-mail address, your full name (surname and first name) and a sufficiently secure password for your future customer account. For organizational reasons, the creation of a new customer account is necessary, even if a customer account already exists at DW. Registration for the Process Planner is only possible if You consent to the use of your data by DW for advertising purposes when registering your data. DW uses your data to send You promotional information on a regular basis (hereinafter referred to as "Newsletter"). After your registration You will receive an e-mail from DW asking you to confirm your registration by clicking an activation link (so-called "double-opt-in"). After that your customer account will be activated. Only after the activation of the customer account You can use the functions of the PP application. There is no entitlement to activation. DW can refuse the use of the PP application for any reason.
- You may only register for the PP Application and use it if You are of legal age and legally competent. Minors, i.e. persons who have not yet reached the age of 18, or Persons who are not legally competent, are only entitled to use the PP Application if they have the consent of their legal representative(s). By registering, You also confirm that You are either of legal age or have the consent of your legal representative(s).
- If the registration form also provides the possibility of registering legal persons or partnerships, this may only be done by a natural person authorized to represent the company, who must be named.
- You are obliged to provide all information required for registration correctly, up to date and completely and to keep it up to date and correct in the future. Multiple registrations are not permitted.
- Due to the fact that DW's offer is free of charge, You may not claim to a certain quality, availability at any time or permanent availability of the PP Application and/or your data. However, DW will try to maintain its PP Application as accessible and trouble-free as possible. As far as possible, non-availabilities due to maintenance work shall be notified by DW in advance by e-mail or on the PP Application, taking into account the legitimate interests of the users.
3. Collaboration & sharing of content
- If you have the right to edit content of the PP application, you can invite other PP users or third parties who otherwise have no access to the PP application (collectively referred to as "Recipients") to collaborate and share diagrams you have created with them. You can decide whether you want to assign editing rights to your diagrams or whether you want to allow read-only access. You undertake to release only those diagrams to which you have the necessary rights and authorisations to share the applicable contents.
- If you decide to release diagrams without assigning editing rights, you are aware that - beyond simple notification of the contents by the recipients - the contents released in the process could be downloaded or copied by the recipient through the use of additional tools. If diagrams are released with editing rights, the contents of the diagram can also be deleted, distributed or changed by the recipient.
- Only the respective creator of the diagrams is entitled to delete diagrams completely. All other collaborators only have the possibility to terminate the collaboration in addition to the aforementioned editing rights in section (2). Upon termination of the collaboration, the respective recipient no longer has access to the diagram and its shared content.
4. User’s Obligations Towards DW:
- You are obliged to keep your self-chosen password for the use of your customer account confidential and not to make your customer account available to third parties for use. You are solely responsible for the security of your password (which should ideally consist of upper and lower case letters, numbers and special characters and should not contain any personal data or readable words) and your customer account. For security reasons, You must change your password periodically (at least every six months) as well as immediately upon DW's request.

You are obliged to inform DW immediately of any misuse of your customer account by e-mail and to change your password immediately.
