2) Unless otherwise specified in the product-specific service descriptions or individual agreements, the following regulations apply. Different terms and conditions of the users or other contractual partners do not apply. They do not apply even if MH does not expressly contradict them.
3) MH reserves the right to change these terms and conditions at any time. The changes will take effect as soon as they are announced on the website at ”myhostess.company/agb”. Registered users are informed of the changed terms and conditions when dialing into the user account (“Account”).

4) Subject to separate regulations, the use of MH’s chargeable services in particular can only take place if the user is over 18 years old or if the consent of a legal representative has been obtained. By registering with MH, the user assures that they are of legal age or that they have the consent of a legal representative.
5) Since MH is an exclusively internet-based service, the user expressly agrees that all information exchange between him and MH takes place online, via email or fax and accordingly all contracts between the user and MH online, via email. Mail or fax can be closed. For this purpose, the user must have an email account that can be reached at any time at his own expense.
6) MH reserves the right at any time not to publish content posted or commissioned by the user (data sets, texts, photos, images, etc.) without prior information from the user according to uniform, objectively justified principles or at its own discretion – also in retrospect – to change. This applies in particular if said content violates legal or official prohibitions or common decency or if publication for MH is unreasonable for other reasons.

Any blocking and / or termination of the contract without notice does not release the user from his payment obligations. MH’s right to assert the fees or claims for damages accrued up to that point remains unaffected. The user has no right to reimbursement for fees already paid in the above cases.
3. Prices, payment, default, retention of title
1) In particular with regard to the chargeable services, MH is aimed exclusively at commercial companies or the self-employed, and expressly not at private individuals / consumers within the meaning of BGB § 13 or end consumers within the meaning of PAngV § 1.

The user pays MH for the use of the respective services – unless otherwise agreed in writing – the remuneration resulting from the price lists available on the Internet under “myhostess.company” and product-specific service descriptions.

6) In the event of late payment, MH is entitled to block the user account concerned without notice without notice, to terminate all current contracts without notice and / or to withdraw from them entirely. Any blocking and / or termination of the contract without notice does not release the user from his payment obligations. MH’s right to assert the fees or claims for damages accrued up to that point remains unaffected. The user has no right to reimbursement for fees already paid in the above cases.
7) Interest on arrears will be charged at eight (8) percent above the base rate. The user reserves the right to prove less than the claimed damage caused by delay.

The use of such content on other internet offers requires the express and written consent of MH or the respective rights holder. This applies in particular to the so-called “screen scraping” of all content published on MH. In the event of an unauthorized transfer / takeover of content published on MH – in whole or in part – the user and MH are already agreeing a reasonable license fee in the amount of EUR 500.00 plus the legally applicable value added tax for each content concerned as defined above as a binding compensation regulation. This applies in particular to job advertisements (industrial customers, conceptual advertising and event agencies etc.) and for SetCards set by job seekers (promoters, hostesses etc.).

5) The user declares that he neither deliberately nor negligently gives third parties the opportunity to access his user account with MH. In addition, the user assumes full responsibility for the use of his account. He is therefore also liable for the improper use of his user account and has to bear all costs of unauthorized use, unless he can exculpate himself against MH.
6) The user must therefore take appropriate measures to ensure that his access data does not fall into the unauthorized hands of third parties. If the user suspects that his user data has passed into the unauthorized hands of third parties, the user bears the sole responsibility to inform MH of this fact immediately online, via email or fax, and to change his user data to cause.

10) In the event of defects on the MH website, the user must document them appropriately (e.g. by taking screenshots) and, in particular, immediately report them by logging the displayed error message (s). In addition, the user has to support MH in the event of a possible rectification of the defect. This obligation is a basic prerequisite for the assertion of any warranty or defect claims. The user must notify MH of any obvious defects in writing within two weeks of the discovery; Deadline is sufficient for the timely dispatch. After the grace period has expired, the assertion of warranty claims is excluded.
11) For the rest, MH points out that other rights and obligations of the users of MH are mentioned in other – context-related – places in these terms and conditions.
7. Rights and obligations of MH
1) MH is not obliged to ensure that its website is accessible and error-free at all times. This applies in particular to the extent that access to MH’s services is affected by faults that are beyond MH’s sphere of influence.

8. Disclaimer of liability
1) MH is liable with reference to § 7
- for damage covered by liability under the Product Liability Act;
- for damage based on an intentional or grossly negligent breach of duty by MH, a legal representative or a vicarious agent of MH;
- for damage caused by simple negligence on the part of MH, insofar as this negligence concerns the violation of essential contractual obligations (“cardinal obligations”). Cardinal obligations are those obligations that the contract has to grant to the contracting partner according to their meaning and purpose or whose fulfillment enables the orderly execution of the contract in the first place and on the observance of which the contracting partner can regularly rely. In these cases, MH’s liability is limited to damage that is typically associated with the contract and is foreseeable;
2) The above regulation includes all contractual and legal claims that result from these terms and conditions or the use of MH’s services. For the rest, MH’s liability is expressly excluded. This applies in particular to data loss that was not caused by intentional behavior on the part of MH, a legal representative or a vicarious agent of MH.
3) MH offers its users a platform on which users can offer or search for jobs and services in exchange or for payment. The MH offer is therefore limited to bringing its users together. The negotiation of any contracts and their conditions in the contractual relationship between the respective users is exclusively a matter for the contracting parties. Therefore, MH assumes no liability for the content, fulfillment, success and / or payment of the contracts negotiated between the parties.
4) Both MH and its users assume that the job offers advertised here – unless otherwise stated and expressly stated in the advertisement text – are equivalent to an advertisement (“pitch”) between companies or the self-employed. However, should an employment relationship between the respective users be subject to social insurance, the contractual arrangement and compliance with the statutory provisions are the sole responsibility of the contracting parties.
5) For the rest, MH points out that other liability-related aspects are mentioned in other – context-related – places in these terms and conditions.
9. Disclaimer for references / links
1) In the case of direct or indirect references to external Internet offers (“links”) that are outside MH’s area of responsibility, a liability obligation only comes into force if MH is aware of any illegal content on the website and MH is technically possible and it is reasonable to prevent the use of appropriate content.
2) MH hereby expressly declares that at the time the links were created, no illegal content was discernible on the linked Internet sites. MH has no influence on the current and future design, content or authorship of the linked internet offers. Therefore, MH hereby expressly distances itself from all content of all linked internet offers that were changed after the link was created. This statement also applies to all links set within our own website as well as for all third-party entries in services offered by MH.
3) The provider of the linked website is solely liable for illegal, incorrect or incomplete content.
10. Copyright, trademark law
1) MH endeavors to observe the copyrights of the content used (data records, texts, photos, images, etc.) in all publications and to use only content created by MH itself or to use license-free or properly licensed content.
2) All brands and trademarks mentioned on the MH website and possibly protected by third parties are subject without restriction to the provisions of the applicable trademark law and the ownership rights of the registered owner. The mere mention does not mean that the corresponding trademark is not protected by the rights of third parties.
3) The copyright for content created by MH itself (data sets, texts, photos, images, etc.) remains solely with MH. Duplication or use of such content in other electronic or printed publications is strictly prohibited without the express and written consent of MH. This applies in particular to the so-called “screen scraping” of all content published on MH.

1) MH’s data protection practice complies with the general data protection regulations of the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG), the Teleservices Data Protection Act (TDDSG) and the Telemedia Act (TMG) for the individual use of combinable data such as characters, images or sounds as well as for the offer and use of information and communication services aimed at the general public in text, sound and images.
2) The collection, processing and use of personal data of MH users is carried out in accordance with the strict requirements of German data protection law under the principle of data avoidance, data transparency and data security. The data collected will only be processed and used by MH and its trading and service partners to the extent necessary for the conduct of the business concluded with the users of MH and the maintenance of the resulting customer relationship, permitted by law and desired by the individual user.
3) In order to carry out the registration-requiring services offered by MH, MH requires from its users: name (s), address (es), delivery address (es), telephone number (s), fax number (s), e-mail address (es) and information on payment processing. For the successful bringing together of job providers (industrial customers, conceptual advertising and event agencies etc.) and job seekers (promoters, hostesses etc.), MH also needs data from its users, which is usually from the job providers registered with MH in one Personnel forms are recorded. Depending on the type of service, it may also be necessary for all or part of this information to be passed on to MH’s trading and service partners.
4) If the MH website is accessed, several data records are saved on the MH web servers. These data records are necessary for the correct handling of the functionalities of MH and are only evaluated internally to optimize the MH website.

For the rest, MH refers to the “Disclaimer third-party providers” section under “myhostess.company/impressum”.

Upon informal application, users of MH receive free information about the personal data stored about them. Similarly, MH users can request the deletion of their data at any time in writing by email, letter or fax from the data protection officer of MH: firstname.lastname@example.org.
8) If MH’s services requiring registration are terminated, the user data (e.g. open fees owed, ongoing law enforcement proceedings) may remain stored on MH’s web servers, provided that this does not conflict with legal regulations. Basically, MH interprets the deletion request of a user in such a way that all user data is immediately deleted from MH’s web servers. As a rule, “deletion” really means deletion!
12. Job letter / newsletter, email communication
1) MH sends regular job letters or newsletters to registered users.
2) The job letters or newsletters can be canceled at any time directly from the job letters / newsletters.
3) By accepting these terms and conditions, the user agrees until the cancellation of the sending of our job letters or newsletters to the email address provided by him.
