General Terms and Conditions

General Terms and Conditions of SwopIt

1. applicability

These General Terms and Conditions of SwopIt govern the use of the online platform SwopIt (hereinafter referred to collectively as "marketplace") and the products and services offered via the marketplace. In particular, the General Terms and Conditions also apply to all contractual agreements with SwopIt. Persons who have concluded a contractual agreement with SwopIt are hereinafter referred to as customers.

2. entry into force, right of revocation, withdrawal by SwopIt

SwopIt has the right at any time to deactivate the user account of a customer without stating reasons or to terminate a concluded agreement without stating reasons and without compensation consequences within 14 days of conclusion.
In the event of the customer using the marketplaces and/or the products or services offered via the marketplaces contrary to contract, unlawful or immoral, or in the event that the customer has given rise to complaints due to the poor quality of the data transmitted to SwopIt, such as advertising data, for example, SwopIt may immediately withdraw from the agreement without compensation consequences and discontinue the provision of services without prior notification to the customer and without compensation consequences, or deactivate the customer's user account; in both cases, a price already paid in advance for a specific term expires, and the customer is not entitled to claim reimbursement. SwopIt reserves the right to all claims.

3. use of the marketplaces with or without registration

The marketplaces can be used with or without registration. However, the use of certain services and products requires registration.
For SwopIt, the customer is the person who uses the user identification and password, irrespective of whether this person actually has the access authorisation. The person who has registered is responsible for the proper use of the user identification and password.

4. prices and terms of payment

Unless expressly agreed otherwise, prices shall be calculated on the basis of the valid price list. SwopIt reserves the right to adjust prices to market and/or price developments at any time. Unless expressly agreed otherwise, the prices are net prices in Swiss francs including value-added tax. Depending on the product or service of SwopIt, an advance payment is required, which can be processed via the payment options offered by SwopIt, or the payment period is 10 days from the date of invoicing, subject to deviating payment periods in accordance with a separate agreement or deviating information on the invoice. If the customer does not pay within the payment period, the customer is automatically in default. SwopIt may also refuse performance of the service and terminate the agreement without notice and compensation and without reminder. In the event of late payment during the term of the contract, SwopIt also has the right to block the customer's access to his user account. Once all outstanding invoices have been paid in full, the block will be lifted again. In this case, the customer has no right to an extension of the agreed contractual period by the duration of the blocking. After expiry of the payment period, the statutory default interest shall be due. In addition, reminder costs of CHF 50.00 per reminder are to be paid. Furthermore, the customer shall pay SwopIt for any damage incurred as a result of the default in payment and/or the dissolution of the agreement.

5. prohibition of further use of information

The commercial use of information and content is reserved for customers. Apart from that, customers do not acquire any rights to content or information made available on the marketplace. Infringements will be prosecuted under civil and criminal law.
Customers expressly undertake not to use the information and content made available on the marketplaces in any way or form outside the marketplace. In particular, customers shall refrain from copying, publishing or otherwise (e.g. on the Internet) reproducing in any form or linking the data accessible on the marketplaces with other data.

6. intellectual property rights

All rights to information, elements and contents of the marketplace, in particular copyrights, brands and trademarks contained therein, are reserved.
Insofar as the contractual use of the marketplace presupposes the granting of rights of use to the customer with reference to SwopIt's copyrights, trademarks and/or know-how, these shall be granted to the customer non-exclusively, non-transferably and to the required extent by SwopIt for the duration of the corresponding agreement. The rights of use granted to the customer are personal and non-transferable. If the customer agrees with SwopIt to use a service of a partner (cf. clause 14), this section shall also apply analogously to such services.

Contents, data, texts, videos, musical pieces, graphics and other contents which the customer transmits to SwopIt for publication on a marketplace (hereinafter referred to as "insertion data") may not infringe any rights whatsoever, in particular no rights of third parties such as personal rights and intellectual property rights. The customer may only transmit insertion data to SwopIt which he has created himself or whose use the rights holder has agreed to.
No addresses (e-mail address or postal address), telephone numbers or vehicle number plates may be visible on photos used in the advertisements. Photos of persons whose faces are clearly recognisable in the photos may only be used with the consent of the relevant person.
All object documents, photos and templates created by SwopIt on behalf of the customer are the property of the customer as soon as the customer has paid the corresponding invoice in full to SwopIt.

any other way and store and process them for this purpose.
The customer expressly agrees to the direct or indirect transfer of the insertion data necessary for the use of the services of partners (cf.
