The subject of the contract is the access to and the use of the Asia Garment Hub.

The system environment consists of a database in which user data, the program code and uploaded files are stored.

Users without administrator rights can access the data and material only via the frontend functions of the platform.

  1. Access / registration

The self-registration on the platform will include the full name and email address of the user. The self-registration can only be completed by confirming the email address in an email sent by the platform to the email address specified by the user. This email contains an activation link. By clicking on the link, the user account is activated and further data is requested to complete the user profile and a password must be entered and confirmed. The consent to the Terms of Use is necessary for the completion of the self-registration and is also stored. Upon consent, the extended offer of registered users on the Asia Garment Hub can be accessed. By registering and accepting the corresponding checkbox, these Terms of Use are accepted. Accounts without confirmation will be deleted.

  1. Content and responsibility

It is prohibited to disclose, share or sell any personal data of other users to third parties without explicit prior consent of the user.

By agreeing to this contract, users consent to keep the personal data of other users confidential. Users also consent to follow all legal provisions and especially the regulations for data protection.

GIZ and ILO reserve the right to terminate the digital services of the Asia Garment Hub platform given a prior notification to the users of the platform.

The Asia Garment Hub as well as all offered services, content and files may only be used for network and learning purposes. Content underlying the Creative Commons license is excluded from this provision.

It is prohibited to post any content, files or data that violate legislations. This particularly applies to racist, violence-promoting, abusive and pornographic content or any other content that violates existing legislations. If users post links to external websites, it is their responsibility to check that the content on the external website does not violate this provision.

Any links to external websites with illegal content are prohibited. In principle, any use of published material protected by copyright requires the permission of the respective copyright holder. Any user who uploads, transfers or otherwise uses third party materials or materials on the platform ensures that such material is either free of rights of third parties or that the use is approved accordingly or otherwise permissible. If a user disregards the rights of third parties within the scope of the use of the platform, he must fulfil the injunctive relief or claims for damages asserted by these third parties.

As a service provider, the GIZ is responsible for its own information according to §§ 7, Abs.1 und 2 TMG, which it makes available for use. According to §§ 8 TMG, there is no responsibility for the information provided by participants in the courses offered on the Asia Garment Hub platform or for the content provided by other providers to which reference is made via hyperlinks.

Users undertake to be liable for damages caused by them, indemnify GIZ and ILO against all claims arising from the infringement of the rights of third parties and reimburse GIZ for all costs incurred in this context for legal defence measures or due to sanctions imposed by state authorities.

As soon as users culpably breach legal obligations and provisions enshrined in laws or in these terms of use, they shall be liable in accordance with the generally applicable statutory provisions.

GIZ and ILO reserve the right to exclude users from access to the Asia Garment Hub in the event of serious violations of the terms of use stated here. In this case, the contract with users will be terminated and they will not be able to conclude a new contract for a period of 5 years.

  1. Deletion of accounts and data

Users can terminate their account on the Asia Garment at any time by sending a deletion request to the administrator or deleting their profile via the profile page. Upon account deletion, the contract with GIZ and ILO also terminates. By ending the contractual relationship, the account of the user will be deleted and the user cannot access their profile but the open access version of the Asia Garment Hub.
