Additional Terms for Premium Add-ons

A. Additional Terms for Premium Add-ons

Premium membership may be enhanced by add-ons offering additional benefits.

These Additional Terms for Premium Add-ons apply when a user purchases an Add-on alongside his/her Premium membership.

The Terms and Conditions for Usage of the XING Service also apply.

 

1. Add-on usage principles and synchronisation with Premium membership

  1. Add-ons may only be purchased in combination with Premium membership.
  2. A user who only has free membership at the time of purchasing an Add-on acquires a Premium membership contract upon purchasing the Add-on. This membership has the same duration as the chosen Add-on.
  3. If a user already has Premium membership at the time of purchasing an Add-on, an additional contract is concluded by purchasing the Add-on.
  4. Companies or third parties are prohibited from using the Add-on for active or passive recruiting purposes.

 

2. Term and expiry of the Add-on and/or Premium membership

  1. Upon expiry of the minimum usage period purchased by the user, the Add-on and Premium membership respectively renew for a renewal period of the same duration, up to a maximum of 12 months, unless the Add-on and/or Premium membership are cancelled by the user or XING by the applicable deadlines.
  2. The user and XING may cancel an Add-on and/or Premium membership via contact form, letter, fax or e-mail without stating reasons, subject to a notice period of three (3) weeks; cancellation is then effective upon elapse of the minimum usage period purchased during the registration process or at the end of a renewal period as applicable.
  3. If only the Add-on is cancelled, Premium membership and any other Add-ons that have not been cancelled remain in place. If the Premium membership is cancelled, XING reserves the right to cancel Add-ons to the end of the next-possible contract term.

 

3. Fees

  1. Add-on fees for the entire duration are due for payment immediately upon invoicing.
  2. XING reserves the right to implement reasonable increases to the Add-on fee with effect from the start of a new renewal period commencing at the end of either the minimum usage period or the current renewal period. No more than one fee increase may be implemented per calendar year. In such case, XING shall notify users a minimum of six (6) weeks in advance of the end of the minimum usage period or current renewal period. A user may indicate non-acceptance of the fee increase within three (3) weeks of notification via contact form, letter, fax or e-mail. Non-acceptance is equivalent to cancellation of the Add-on by the user, meaning the Add-on expires at the end of the existing minimum usage period or current renewal period.

 

4. Supplementary Terms and Conditions for Data Protection

  1. Depending on the Add-on selected, additional personal data may be collected and used in order to provide the services and functions included in the respective Add-on. Even after the user has cancelled the Add-on, this data will be continued to be stored for the duration of the membership if the user has not already deleted it. This primarily serves to allow the user to use previously entered data should he/she decide to reactivate an Add-on.
  2. The assertion of rights of persons affected as defined by Article 12 et seqq. EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) shall remain unaffected.

 

5. Applicability of the Terms and Conditions for Usage of the XING Service

The Terms and Conditions for Usage of the XING Service apply in addition.

B. General Terms and Conditions for the use of XING Benefits Plus

XING Benefits Plus is an optional paid add-on for XING members. XING Benefits Plus users gain access to a wide range of discounts on products and services from a number of external providers (Top Deals). XING collaborates with one of more contractors who acquire Top Deals from external providers which are then served to XING Benefits Plus users.

These General Terms and Conditions for the use of XING Benefits Plus apply when users book XING Benefits Plus in addition to their membership.

The General Terms and Conditions for the use of the XING service also apply.

 

1. Basis for using XING Benefits Plus

  1. As and where appropriate, XING only provides users with the option to book XING Benefits Plus in combination with a Premium membership. In this case, the following applies:
    1. If, at the time of booking XING Benefits Plus, a user only has free membership, the user will also acquire a Premium membership contract when booking XING Benefits Plus.
    2. If, at the time of booking XING Benefits Plus, a user already has Premium membership, the user will acquire a second, additional contract when booking XING Benefits Plus.
  2. The Top Deals portfolio made available to the XING Benefits Plus user may change during the term of contract. XING is not obliged to provide a certain Top Deals portfolio on a permanent basis.
  3. The amendment, discontinuation or other termination of XING Benefits Plus does not have any impact on the contractual relationship between XING and the user in terms of the user's XING membership.
  4. By providing XING Benefits Plus, XING merely enables users to take advantage of the Top Deals. Specific agreements pertaining to Top Deals are entered into solely by the user and the respective external provider. Any and all claims (e.g. warranty) arising from these agreements between users and external providers may only be asserted against the external provider.
  5. XING does not assume any warranty or liability for the correctness or completeness of the product information and contact provided by external providers. XING also does not assume any warranty or liability for the availability, quality or rendering of the services offered, nor does it assume any liability in the event that an external provider’s services breach third-party rights.
  6. XING provides no warranty that the Top Deals offered by an external provider will actually be provided. XING provides no warranty that the discounts offered by external providers represent actual savings for the user.

 

2. Term, termination

2.1 XING Benefits Plus shall run for the initial term chosen by the user at the time of booking. After this term, XING Benefits Plus will be renewed by a term of the same length as the original term, unless terminated in due time by the user or XING. The user and XING may each terminate XING Benefits Plus without cause to the end of the initial term chosen by the user in the course of the registration process, or to the end of any renewal period after said minimum term expires, by serving notice of three (3) weeks via the contact form, letter, fax or e-mail.

2.2 XING may also terminate XING Benefits Plus during the first contract year by serving notice of one (1) month to the end of a calendar month. In this case, the user will be reimbursed pro rata temporis for any XING Benefits Plus fees paid in advance.

2.3 Both parties are entitled to immediate extraordinary termination for good cause at any time. Extraordinary termination for good cause is defined as an event which makes it unacceptable for the terminating party to continue the agreement to the end of the termination period, taking into account all circumstances of the individual case and weighing the interests of both parties.

2.4 If XING Benefits Plus is terminated, the user will continue to hold Premium membership and any other unterminated add-ons.

2.5 The user's right to claim reimbursement of any fees paid in advance shall not be excluded in this case if the user has terminated the agreement for a good cause attributable to XING. The user's right to claim reimbursement of any fees paid in advance shall be excluded if XING terminates the agreement or the XING member’s membership for good cause.

 

3. Remuneration

3.1 The fees for XING Benefits Plus are due immediately for the entire term of contract upon invoicing.

3.2 XING reserves the right to reasonably increase the fees charged for XING Benefits Plus with effect from the start of a new renewal period, either after the initial term or the respective current renewal period. Prices may only be increased once per calendar year. In such cases, XING will inform the user at least six (6) weeks prior to expiry of the initial term or respective current renewal period. Should the user not agree to this increase in fees, it may revoke consent to do so within three (3) weeks of notification via the contact form, letter, fax or e-mail. The user’s submission of a revocation is tantamount to cancelling XING Benefits Plus, meaning that said add-on will expire at the end of the initial term or respective current renewal period.

 

4. Other obligations of the user

4.1 XING Benefits Plus is a personal offer for users. This means that the Top Deals may only be used by users themselves. The user is not permitted to disclose login details, discount codes, vouchers and the like to other people, nor may the user pass on Top Deals content for other people to use. Such content must be handled in confidence and may only be used for purposes pertaining to private use of the Top Deals.

4.2 XING may take appropriate action to prevent user misuse.

 

5. Validity of the provisions of the General Terms and Conditions for the use of the XING service

Otherwise the validity of the provisions of the General Terms and Conditions for the use of the XING service shall apply.
