sets up at least one profile, either in their own name as a natural person, or
as a representative of an organisation, a company, an institution, etc. An
Account allows the User to set up several profiles, to contact other Users on
behalf of these profiles, and to negotiate and conclude agreements with them;

and sign-in of a natural person on www.gigmit.com, and results in assigning an
Account to the User;
c. A "Profile" is a representation of an industry actor (artist, promoter,
agent, label, publisher) created by a User for the purposes of promotion on a
"Profile Page", "Artist Page", "microsite" and/or "Promoter Page", created and

with multiple Accounts, following User approval.
3. GIGMIT FREE User Agreement; GIGMIT PREMIUM Services
3.1. The Registration on, and use of the Portal are free of charge; however,
GIGMIT FREE does not allow Users unlimited access to the full range of services
provided on the Portal. A successful Log-in or the creation of a Profile by the
User merely represents an offer to conclude a User Agreement regarding the use
of GIGMIT FREE or, where applicable, of GIGMIT PREMIUM services. gigmit reserves
the right to accept or reject this offer. The conclusion of a User Agreement
lies at gigmit's discretion; the User does not have a right to demand the
conclusion of a User Agreement with gigmit.
3.2. Once the User has created a Log-in and set up their first Profile, gigmit
will confirm the conclusion of a GIGMIT FREE or GIGMIT PREMIUM User Agreement by
contacting the User at the email address provided by the latter. The
confirmation email will activate the above-mentioned User Agreement. Should the
User choose to sign up for GIGMIT PREMIUM services at a later stage, having
already completed the registration process for GIGMIT FREE, the same
confirmation process shall apply. The GIGMIT PREMIUM User Agreement shall be
activated upon reception of a confirmation email by gigmit. When concluding a
User Agreement with gigmit, the User shall not require a notification of
acceptance, in accordance with §151 of the German Civil Code.

and all associated Profiles. The User must provide truthful and complete
information, in particular with regard to the age and identity of the natural
person associated with a User Profile.
3.4. Should the misuse of a Log-in Account or a User Profile be due to the
negligent or intentional actions of a User, said User shall be liable for any
damages incurred. The User accesses and uses the Portal at their own risk. This
applies in particular to the use of any content downloaded from or otherwise
provided by the Portal or other Portal users. The User must keep all Log-in
information confidential. As soon as the User becomes aware of unauthorized
access to their Log-in information by third parties, they must inform gigmit
without undue delay. This also applies to any other misuse of the Account that
the User may become aware of.
3.5. The User may not engage in any illegal activity while using the
portal. In particular, the User may not:
a. Save, publish and/or transmit content (such as statements, information,
images, or other data) or external links that violate the rights of third
parties, or any content that is unlawful, immoral, harassing, insulting,
obscene, pornographic, violent, youth-endangering, racist and/or discriminatory,
or otherwise inappropriate;
b. Collect, copy, distribute, or use the content or data stored on
the platform by other users without their prior explicit consent;

unauthorized third parties;

4.1. With regard to services falling under GIGMIT PREMIUM, the content, scope,
duration and price of any such services is determined by the current offer
outlined on the Portal.
4.2. Any fees associated with the use of GIGMIT PREMIUM services are payable in
advance; depending on the particular offer, they may be payable on a monthly or
annual basis. The administrator and owner of a specific Profile is always the
person responsible for covering any fees associated with the use of any GIGMIT
PREMIUM services, and the recipient of all relevant invoices.
4.3. Payments can be made using any of the payment methods proposed by gigmit,
such as by invoice or by credit card. gigmit reserves the right to modify or
expand the available payment methods.
4.4. Invoicing is done digitally; the User accepts that there will be no
invoicing in printed form. Invoices shall either be sent to the User by email or
stored in the User’s Account on the Portal, where they can be accessed at any
time. If the invoices are stored online, only the initial invoice shall be sent
by email upon the conclusion of a new User Agreement. Subsequent invoices, where
applicable, will not be sent by email.
4.5. When payments are made by direct debit, the User must ensure that the bank
details provided are correct, that they have access to the bank account in
question, and that sufficient funds are available at the time of payment. Any
costs associated to failed payments, especially return debit and reminder fees,
are payable by the User. This does not apply if gigmit is responsible for the
failed payment. Payments between the User and gigmit may be processed by a
service provider, or directly by gigmit. All information required for the
processing of payments will be used by the service provider and/or gigmit
exclusively for that purpose, and transmitted securely via the "SSL" protocol.
4.6. All prices are exclusive of VAT, which, if applicable, is clearly noted in
the relevant invoice, if not at an earlier stage.
4.7. If the User defaults on payment, gigmit may, after a reasonable period of
time and at least ten days after a notification email, suspend their access to
any contractual services, terminate their contract without notice, and/or block
the User's access to their Account or to individual Profiles. All
above-mentioned measures are lifted once all outstanding invoices have been paid
in full. If the User has been blocked from accessing gigmit services due to
outstanding payments, the duration of their User Agreement will not be prolonged
5. Termination & Extension of GIGMIT PREMIUM
5.1. A GIGMIT FREE User Agreement can be terminated at any time and without
justification, unless a GIGMIT PREMIUM product is associated with it, because
the use of GIGMIT PREMIUM requires an underlying GIGMIT FREE account. The
underlying GIGMIT FREE User Account remains in effect even after the termination
of any GIGMIT PREMIUM products associated with it, unless it is canceled
5.2. The deadline for the ordinary cancellation of a GIGMIT PREMIUM User
Agreement depends on the product-related offer as outlined on the Portal. The
offer, as it is presented on the Portal, shall form the content of the ensuing
User Agreement. If the User does not cancel their contract for a GIGMIT PREMIUM
product within the applicable deadline, the GIGMIT PREMIUM User Agreement will
be automatically renewed for a period equal in length to the one agreed upon in
the initial Agreement. In such a case, the duration of the extension period and
any fees incurred will be determined in accordance with the conditions outlined
when the GIGMIT PREMIUM Agreement was originally signed.
5.3. gigmit may terminate any existing GIGMIT FREE and/or GIGMIT PREMIUM User
Agreements and/or Profiles at any time without notice for an important reason,
and in particular in the event of a breach of the present Terms and Conditions
or of any other legal provisions.
5.4. Notice of termination must be given in writing. A notice of termination by
the User may be communicated to gigmit using the email address
email@example.com. Moreover, the User may cancel any GIGMIT Premium services by
accessing the "Manage membership" section of their Account and clicking the
"Cancel" button of the relevant GIGMIT PREMIUM service. The termination is
confirmed by a notification on the User's profile, as well as by email. Should
gigmit wish to terminate a User Agreement, it will do so by sending a notice of
termination to the email address provided by the User.

6.1. When creating a Profile, Users must submit personal information, some of
which may be required as mandatory for the creation of the Profile. Users will
be asked to submit such information when creating their Profile, and may edit or
modify that information at any time. All mandatory information is indicated by
an asterisk. The Profile contains all essential information regarding the User.
The information contained on the Profile will not be disclosed beyond the
Portal. That information may be used for various purposes, including for
optimally connecting Users on the Portal. gigmit bears no responsibility for the
true identity of the persons behind the individual Profiles, as it does not
verify that information.
6.2. Users can create and customize their presence on the Portal (for example,
by creating a microsite, an artist page, or a promoter page). For that purpose,
certain information may be extracted from the User's Profile, including the name
of the User's authorized representative. Users may also add their own content
and provide additional information. The User may also decide whether their
microsite, artist page, or promoter page can be viewed exclusively by registered
Portal Users or made publicly available to non-registered guests to the Portal.

their Profile, publishing them on the Portal, and then submitting and/or

find and select the right applicant.

conclusion of any event contracts.

gigmit, which are selected and thus activated by the Users themselves. The User
