General terms and conditions
for the use of W&H Video Channel and wh.com websites
1.1 The following General terms and conditions apply for all those who register as users (“the User”) for the offers contained on the national and international websites of the internet platform wh.com and video.wh.com.
The conditions apply for the wh.com and video.wh.com websites.
2. Changes to the General terms and conditions/right of termination
2.1 W&H reserves the right to make changes to these General terms and conditions (GTC) and to the code of conduct. W&H will provide information about the changes via the wh.com and video.wh.com websites.
In the case of legal acts carried out before the changes take effect, the original conditions shall continue to apply. The changes to the GTC are seen and understood as having been approved by the User if they continue to use the offers of the wh.com and video.wh.com websites after the end of a month following the introduction of the new GTC, or if they have not terminated the use within two months from the introduction of the changes.
3. Recognition of the GTC as a basis of the contract
3.1 When the application for registration and the registration on the wh.com and video.wh.com websites is carried out, a licence agreement comes into force between W&H and the User (“the Licence Agreement”). In their application, the User recognises the validity of these General terms and conditions and the code of conduct as the basis of the Licence Agreement.
4. Conclusion of the Licence Agreement and registration/authorisation for use
4.1 This is concluded via the registration of the User.
4.2 The registration requires that the User
- provides the data requested in the registration form and
- is an individual over the age of 18 years with unrestricted legal capacity.
4.3 There is no legal right to registration. W&H is entitled to refuse the registration, i.e. the conclusion of the Licence Agreement, without providing reasons.
4.4 Upon registration, the User is entitled to make use of all the services offered on the wh.com and video.wh.com websites.
5.1 W&H has the right to terminate the Licence Agreement and to retract the registration at any time without giving reasons. This means that the authorisation to use the offers of the wh.com and video.wh.com websites no longer applies.
5.2 Irrespective of this, W&H will terminate the Agreement and retract the registration if false information is given in the registration, if registration requirements are not met, if infringements are made against the provisions of these GTC and the code of conduct or if there is serious evidence available which suggests that the User has been committing illegal actions.
5.3 The User will be notified of the registration on the corresponding confirmation page; notification of the termination of the registration will be given in writing via e mail.
5.4 The User has the right to terminate the Licence Agreement at any time without giving reasons. If the User terminates the Agreement by deleting the profile, W&H will retract the registration once this declaration has been received.
The termination can also be directed to W&H in writing and sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. The subject line should state “Cancellation of wh.com and video.wh.com website registration”.
6. Individual password
6.1 Each User chooses an individual password upon registration. It is only possible to access the wh.com and video.wh.com websites using this password.
The User must not disclose the password to third parties and must keep it safe so that it cannot be abused.
6.2 The User is obliged to inform W&H immediately if they have lost the password or if they are aware that unauthorised third parties know what the password is. If the User cannot prove that a third party has used the access to the wh.com and video.wh.com websites without their permission then all declarations made using their access data will be attributed to the User.
The User is liable for any abuse by third parties unless they can prove that they are in no way responsible for this abuse.
7. Data collection, data protection, limitation of guarantee
7.1 W&H will not transmit to third parties the User’s data which is collected, processed and saved during the registration and the use of services unless there is any legally or officially imposed obligation to do so or unless the transmission is required for the purposes of evidence.
7.2 In the case of a termination on the part of W&H or the User, the User’s registration will be retracted and all data saved about this User will be deleted within one month of W&H receiving the termination unless the data is required to be saved for the fulfilment and execution of the existing legal relationship or for the purposes of evidence. W&H does not grant any guarantee for the security of the data exchange (chat messages, online messages etc.).
8. Changes to and discontinuation of the offers of the wh.com and video.wh.com websites
8.1 The User does not have any claim to the provision of the services offered. W&H reserves the right to change or completely discontinue the offers of the URLs of the wh.com and video.wh.com websites at any time at their own discretion and without stating reasons.
This does not result in any claims for the User against W&H, unless this is specifically stated in the Special terms and conditions.
9. Liability of W&H
9.1 W&H is liable without limitation for intent and gross negligence.
9.2 In the case of slight negligence, W&H shall only be liable if the legal representatives or assistants infringe an obligation which is of essential importance for the achievement of the purpose of the contract (“Cardinal Obligation”).

Data protection statement and information
Sensitive and responsible handling of the personal data of all users is a matter of the utmost importance for W&H Dentalwerk Bürmoos GmbH. All statutory laws and provisions relating to data protection are strictly adhered to. These statutory data protection measures include the legislative requirements at EU level.
The data protection statement provides information on how it is ensured that all personal data is protected and secured on the websites operated by W&H Dentalwerk Bürmoos GmbH in accordance with the currently valid statutory provisions.
2. Intended use
2.1 The collection, saving, processing and use of the personal data by W&H is carried out in accordance with statutory provisions.
2.2 The data collected is used for the following purposes, whereby not all data is actually used for all purposes:
•The data which the user provides upon registration is used by W&H to establish and manage the contractual relationship.
•W&H uses data collected during the use of the wh.com and video.wh.com websites for the provision of the services offered.
•W&H is entitled to analyse the behaviour of its Users in the network in order to continually improve the services offered by the wh.com and video.wh.com websites.
The evaluation of this data will not be person-specific under any circumstances, i.e. the identity of the user will remain unknown. W&H guarantees that under no circumstances will the analysis data be combined with the personal data of the users, from either a technical point of view or from personal/organisational points of view.
3. No transmission of data to third parties
3.1 W&H shall not transmit the personal data of its users to third parties unless the user has previously given their express permission for this to happen or there is a legal obligation for the data to be transmitted. If the user gives their permission, this can be revoked at any time with effect for the future simply by sending notification (e-mail).
4. Server log files
4.1 Every time a page is called up by the user, the user’s internet browser transmits access data which is automatically saved in server log files by the wh.com and video.wh.com websites during the use.
These data are not combined with other data sources, in particular with the personal user data.
5. Data security
5.1 The firewalls in use which are constantly updated and the other security systems are intended to protect the users from viruses and unauthorised external access to the wh.com and video.wh.com websites to as great an extent as possible. Nonetheless, the users should be aware of the fact that as new viruses and other means to attack secured data systems of internet services are constantly emerging, it is not possible to guarantee one hundred per cent protection from attacks. W&H is not responsible for the damage or destruction of data by unknown viruses. W&H will prosecute any detected access by hackers etc. under civil and criminal law.
6.1 All users have the right to receive a disclosure free of charge on the personal data which are saved about them. The request for the disclosure must be directed to W&H (firstname.lastname@example.org) in writing.
The request for disclosure must be accompanied by a certified copy of a valid, official piece of personal identification. The disclosure will be sent by post to the address stated in the user’s personal identification.
7. Amendment, deletion and blocking
7.1 If the User changes or amends the personal information which they provide and in doing so deletes old information, then the data which they previously entered will be automatically deleted in full. There is no need to apply to make amendments or delete information.
7.2 Regardless of this, the user has the right at any time to request that inapplicable data which is saved about them on the wh.com and video.wh.com websites is corrected.
However, the simplest method for the user to do this is to make the appropriate changes to their entries themselves.
7.3 The request for the deletion must be directed to W&H (email@example.com) in writing. All data they have previously entered will be deleted in full.
7.4 Regardless of this, the user has the right at any time to request that all personal data which has been collected from them and is saved on the wh.com and video.wh.com websites is deleted.
7.5 If the user chooses to request that their personal data is changed, amended or deleted then this request can be made by e-mail, fax or by post. In order to ensure that the details are assigned correctly, the request must include a minimum of the following information:
•Surname, first name
•Identification via a copy of a form of identification (valid passport or personal ID card)
7.6 W&H would like to point out that due to caching systems and the interconnection of proxy servers, under certain circumstances it may still be possible to call up data which has been deleted for up to 24 hours. It may be possible to access image for an even longer period of time.
8. Change to the data protection statement.
As the services offered are subject to change, in individual cases it may be necessary to make alterations to the data protection statement and information.
