Participation in this is completely optional for you. However, if you do not participate, you will not be able to take advantage of various information, materials and services.
In the following cases, for example, we require further information from you:

It may further be used to inform you about special offers, updated information, and new PrintersLounge products and services.
16. Paid memberships
Currently, no paid memberships are offered on PrintersLounge.
17. Right of withdrawal for consumers
If the user registers with PrintersLounge for a purpose that is neither commercial nor self-employed, the following provisions apply to the user as a consumer within the meaning of the law (§ 13 German Civil Code):
17.1 Right of withdrawal
The user may cancel the registration in writing (e.g., by letter, fax, or e-mail) within two (2) weeks without stating reasons. The period begins after PrintersLounge has activated the membership, but no earlier than upon receipt of this notice.
In each of the above cases, timely dispatch of the revocation is sufficient to comply with the revocation period. In each of the above cases, the revocation may be sent to PrintersLounge by mail. The revocation may also be sent to PrintersLounge via the contact form available on the PrintersLounge Web sites or by fax or e-mail.
The User's rights of termination under Section 18 shall remain unaffected by the User's right of revocation under this Section 17.
17.2 Premature expiration of the right of withdrawal
Pursuant to § 312d (3) of the German Civil Code (Bürgerliches Gesetzbuch), the user's right of revocation shall expire prior to the expiration of the two-week revocation period under Section 17.1 if PrintersLounge has commenced performance of the PrintersLounge services for which the user has registered with the express consent of the user or if the user has caused PrintersLounge to perform the PrintersLounge services for which the user has registered (for example, by the user using services of PrintersLounge provided to the user by PrintersLounge under the membership selected by the user upon registration).
17.3 Consequences of withdrawal
In the event of an effective revocation, the services received by both parties must be returned in accordance with the statutory provisions and any benefits derived (e.g., interest) must be surrendered. If the user is unable to return the received services to PrintersLounge, or is only able to return them in part or in a deteriorated condition, the user must compensate PrintersLounge for the loss of value. The user must fulfill obligations to refund payments within 30 days after sending its notice of cancellation.
18. Termination of the contract, refund of fees paid in advance
18.1 The User may terminate the free Membership at any time without giving reasons. Notice of termination may be given by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. The user name and an e-mail address of the user registered on the PrintersLounge Web Site must be provided when giving notice of termination.
The provisions in Clause 18.1 shall not affect the right of either party to terminate for cause.
18.2 Good cause for PrintersLounge exists, in particular, if the continuation of the contractual relationship until the expiration of the statutory notice period is unreasonable for PrintersLounge, taking into account all circumstances of the individual case and weighing the interests of PrintersLounge and the user.
Important reasons are in particular the following events:
- Failure of the user to comply with legal requirements,
- Violation by the user of his contractual obligations,
- The reputation of the services offered on the PrintersLounge Web sites is substantially impaired by the presence of the user (e.g., if after registration of the user it becomes apparent that the user has been convicted of an intentional criminal offense by a final court judgment and other users are aware of such conviction);
- The user promotes associations or communities - or their methods or activities - that are monitored by security or youth protection authorities;
- The user harms one or more other users, or
- The user is a member of a sect or a religious community that is controversial in Germany.
18.3 If good cause is shown in accordance with Section 18.2, PrintersLounge may also impose the following sanctions on the user, irrespective of termination in accordance with Section 18.2:
- Deletion of content posted by the user,
- Issuance of a warning or
- Blocking access to PrintersLounge website services.
18.4 In the following cases, the User's claim for reimbursement of fees already paid in advance is excluded:
- PrintersLounge may terminate the contract for cause in accordance with clause 18.2,
- PrintersLounge shall block the user's access in accordance with clause 18.3 or
- The user terminates the contract; however, the user's right to reimbursement of fees already paid in advance is not excluded if the user terminates the contract for good cause attributable to PrintersLounge.
19. Rights to content
By posting a contribution to the network, the user grants PrintersLounge an unrestricted, irrevocable, and transferable right to use the respective contribution, which entitles PrintersLounge to exploit the contribution in any way, in particular to permanently include the contribution in the corresponding topic area on its Web pages and on the Web pages of its cooperation partners, and to otherwise market the topic area.
PrintersLounge thus has the right to use all contributions to the topics it offers. Any duplication or use of objects such as images, diagrams, sounds or texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without PrintersLounge's agreement. Copying, downloading, distributing or storing any content of PrintersLounge or third parties, with the exception of caching in the context of visiting the Web pages, is not permitted without their express consent.
