The user consents to these terms by registering or logging in.

Users shall inform EYZ immediately of any misuse of their access information. Furthermore, users of EYZ are liable for any damages caused by unauthorized use of their accounts. The user can terminate his or her membership at any time by canceling his or her account.
Usage of the website requires an Internet connection with a download capacity of at least 2 Mbit/sec. The contractual relationship between EYZ and the user does not include provisions for connection to the Internet. As regards access to the Internet, conditions contractually agreed upon between the Internet provider and the user govern that access. Users must provide for end-user devices that meet the technical requirements necessary to use the service. EYZ does not assume liability for nor make guarantees in the event of website malfunction due to users lacking the necessary technical equipment. To use our service, user or client systems must fulfill the following minimum technical requirements:
– Operating system: Windows Vista/7/8/10/, Apple Lion and higher, Linux
– Browser (recommended): Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Internet Explorer
– Current version of Flash Player
EYZ does not guarantee a speedy or successful streaming connection. In the event that despite proof of purchase streaming does not take place, EYZ will make every effort to facilitate successful streaming.
EYZ reserves the right to modify the technical requirements needed to access its service and to make the use of its service dependent on further conditions, for example, minimum age requirements etc. Furthermore, EYZ reserves the right to charge a fee for certain service components. EYZ will inform its users in advance of any fee-based service components, and will obtain user consent for such services or performances. Users are obliged to pay fees only upon use of such services.
EYZ reserves the right to transfer its contractual rights and duties to one or more third parties (transfer of contract or Novation Agreement). The above not withstanding, EYZ reserves the right, at any time and without forewarning, to discontinue the portal, the services offered therein, or parts of those services. To the same extent, the usage rights of users will be terminated.
§3 Scope of Services, Usage, Revocation
After successful account activation, users are entitled to access for non-commercial, personal viewing, the films available on the EYZ website.
In as far as EYZ offers viewing privileges for the duration of their active subscription, users purchase the right to access (stream) films as often as they want. EYZ grants users usage rights that are non-exclusive.
By using the service, users agree:
– to use accessed films for personal, non-commercial use only.
– not to show accessed films in public. Furthermore, users agree not to allow public access when a film is running, not to permanently or locally save or store, nor send, process, copy, disseminate, publicly play, advertise for, or in any other way distribute, circulate, or exploit the accessed films or aid in any such unauthorized use, nor to use the film for any other reason, or in any other form, other than has been explicitly authorized in this contract; films with licenses for educational use are subject to the terms for educational licenses. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
– not to circumvent, disable, or interfere with secure streaming technology or any technical security measures and/or data used.
Users must comply with national and international copyright and intellectual property rights law. Any film accessed must be used in compliance with the usage rights stipulated in this contract. The user is expressly prohibited from removing or modifying any copyright, property rights, and/or trademark notices. As a rule, users have the right to terminate contracts that have been entered into over the Internet (distance contracts). However, this right to terminate expires before the end of the revocation period in the event that EYZ has begun to provide services that have been placed with the explicit consent of the user before the end of the legal revocation period, and/or the user initiates this himself or herself (for example, by accessing content provided by EYZ). This is the case if any EYZ service is used, so that the right to terminate this contract expires once a film has been successfully accessed by users.
Cancellations should be sent to:
EYZ Media GmbH
Tel +49-30-9700 4330
The user agrees to pay applicable usage fees as they occur. Prior to accessing a film, the user will be informed of film usage fees. The user is also obliged to pay usage fees occurring in the event that third parties, whether with or without consent of the user, access or use content that has been retrieved over the user Internet connection, or by using the user name and password. This does not apply if the user cannot be held liable for the usage in question. The burden of proof of usage liability rests, in any event, on the user.
EYZ retains the right to alter at any time its film selection and the applicable prices and description of service (for example, when updating film catalogs). The same applies to the technical specifications for film access. In the event that a change in technical specifications affects the necessary technical requirements of users, EYZ will inform users of such change. It may occur that, due to licensing agreements, availability of certain films may be limited to specific geological regions, and may not be accessible worldwide. Film availability in such instances will be limited by way of geo-targeting and IP-blocking technologies.
The user of EYZ is authorized to rate films and film titles and to write comments and to make personal submissions to the platform. In regard to user entries and comments in the realeyz.de blog, be aware that insulting language is not permitted. Submissions or comments made by users do not in any way represent the opinion of EYZ. EYZ will make every effort to publish user submissions as quickly as possible. The user hereby acknowledges that the EYZ content is subject to change. Users are not legally entitled to uninterrupted access to, or publication of, any user submission.
EYZ is authorized, in particular for its own search function, to improve the way the platform offers or displays texts, pictures, and videos by creating thumbnails (small preview images), and to publish these on its website portal. Furthermore, EYZ is authorized to store and distribute content to third parties if provided for under mandatory statute, or, if according to our best judgment, such action is deemed necessary and permitted by law in order to:
1. fulfill legal requirements or court order or official directive,
2. to enforce these Terms and Conditions of Use,
2. to fulfill third-party liability claims based on an enforceable rights infringement or violation of the law, or
4. to ensure the rights, the property, or the personal safety of EYZ, its users, and/or the general public.
§4 Warranty and Liability
Because the EYZ platform operates in real-time mode, it is not feasible for EYZ to audit all member submissions. EYZ, as a general rule, does not audit member submissions, nor does EYZ audit content provided by users. Therefore, EYZ does not assume liability for the form, accuracy, appropriateness, or quality of such content. Authors of submissions to the website are responsible for their own submissions, and they agree not to contribute content or make entries that: violate existing German law or the rights of third parties (copyright, trademark, personal rights, and name and publicity rights); violate these terms and conditions of use; or go against accepted principles of morality or public decency. The same applies to the user name chosen by users. In addition, it is prohibited for users to make comments, disseminate, or otherwise make content or information available that is libelous, offensive, abusive, discriminating, or otherwise illegal. The same applies to choice of user name, regardless of form (text, link, image, sound recording, etc.).Furthermore, the user agrees to abstain from actions that impair or could impair the functionality or performance of the EYZ portal. EYZ is not required to publish users submissions. EYZ is authorized to reject contributions by members or users, and subsequently prohibit them from making future contributions at any time, and without stating grounds.
Furthermore, EYZ retains the right to prevent at any time, also subsequently, users from participating in or using some or all of its services if it becomes known that these users:
– abuse services or product offerings, for example through the use of “robots”, “spiders” or “offline” readers or other similar malware,
– fail to comply with or violate contract specifications,
– violate the rights of EYZ or third parties,
– use the EYZ service or portal in such a way as to jeopardize the good reputation of EYZ.
Users are liable to EYZ for any damages, costs and expenses arising from any violation to the contractual agreement between EYZ and users, in particular those obligations arising from the regulations contained herein, and releases EYZ from any third party claims upon initial request. This also includes the costs for adequate legal representation. This provision is not applicable in the event that a user is not responsible for the violation. Burden of proof rests in all cases on the user.
Furthermore, in the event of liability, violations against this contractual agreement between EYZ and the user, as well as in the event of reasonable and serious grounds for suspecting such infringements of user contractual obligations, EYZ is authorized to suspend the service or features related to the infraction. Along these same premises, EYZ is also authorized in the event of good cause, to immediately terminate this contractual agreement without prior notice. EYZ’s liability is limited exclusively to malicious intent, gross negligence, or negligent breach of contractually significant obligations. This liability is limited to foreseeable, typically occurring damages. Above mentioned is not applicable if EYZ has misrepresented or failed to disclose a defect, or has assumed guarantee for the existence of a feature. The same applies for EYZ’s vicarious agents.
Liability for culpable injury to life, body, or health, as regards product liability law, remains unaffected. EYZ is not liable, except in the case of malicious intent and gross negligence, for the misuse of information by other users, or by third parties, or for unauthorized third parties obtaining user information. Likewise, EYZ is not liable for damages due to disruptions of service caused by third parties, as, for example, by viruses, email bombing, DDoS attacks or for similar damages for which EYZ is not accountable. Further claims of the user, especially damage claims due to lost profits or other lost property or financial damages are excluded.
EYZ attempts, to the best of its knowledge, to keep its Internet site content and services free of viruses, worms, trojans, and other malware. In the event that EYZ is liable for a disruption to service that prevents or considerably disrupts contractual use of an accessed film, EYZ will, at its own discretion, either immediately make improvements to, or provide replacement for, the film in question. In accordance with §536a of German Civil Code, EYZ cannot be held liable, regardless of negligence or fault, for damages due to defects already in existence at the time this contract goes into effect. Users shall immediately report any noticeable service malfunction by mailing a service disruption report to email@example.com (malfunction report).
§ 5 Copyright, Confidentiality
The user is aware that EYZ and third parties (rights holders) hold copyrights to content on the website. All materials available on the portal (text, pictures, graphics, music, animation, etc.), as well as the related layouts, are protected by copyright laws. These rights are owned by EYZ. EYZ also owns all rights to the web design, trademark, usage rights and technologies therein. In the event of infringement of the aforementioned obligations, EYZ is entitled to full compensation for any resultant damages.
Publication rights to submissions made by users will be transferred permanently and irrevocably to EYZ, or the provider, at the time these submissions are sent – as long as the user is the legal holder of these rights. Submissions to which the sender is not publication rights holder may be submitted and published. However, the user warrants that in doing so, the rights of third parties will not violated.
Users agree to handle with confidentiality, and not to disclose to third parties, all files, data, and or any other information received or obtained from other users within the capacity of this website’s service or features unless authorized by the individual in question.

§ 8 Final Provisions

EYZ can also file suit in a court of law at the place of jurisdiction of the user.
