iMOVE is an initiative of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). iMOVE is part of the international division at the Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training (BIBB).
These General Terms and Conditions apply to German training providers, who would like to be included in the iMOVE Provider database.
German companies which are registered in the iMOVE Provider database−be they providers of vocational training and continuing education, consultancy services in the field of vocational education and training, or equipment suppliers - are obligated to comply the admission criteria.
No costs or fees will be levied to use the iMOVE provider database.
Company information submitted to iMOVE's provider database during the application process will be published in the provider database. By going through this process, provider agrees to have data published in the provider database.
Company information submitted to iMOVE's provider database during the application process, will not be transferred to third parties. However, iMOVE has the right to save content and to disclose it to authorized persons, if it becomes obligatory under law or pursuant to a court order, or, if it becomes necessary for the purposes of legal and criminal prosecution as a result of an attack on iMOVE's internet infrastructure at BIBB.
Account, Password and Security
A user name and password will be assigned to the account with the application. The provider must ensure there is no third party access to the password and account; providers are fully responsible for all activity undertaken using their password or account (including those undertaken by other persons). Providers are obligated to report any and all abuse of provider's password or account, as well as any other violation of safety regulations and procedures, to iMOVE immediately. Provider must also make sure to log out of the account after each use. iMOVE is excluded from any and all liability which may result from non-compliance with these obligations.
It is agreed that educational institutions registered in iMOVE's database will provide a link from their website to iMOVE's home page, using a text link or a text link with a graphic component. Graphic components, an accompanying text and a link code will be provided by iMOVE. The link should appear on the first or second layer of the web page. The link must be implemented within a period of two months from the time the educational institution has been accepted and incorporated into iMOVE's provider database.
Responsibilities of Participating Educational Institutions
Responsibility for content, which providers have provided (the upload), published, sent via email or forwarded by other means within the framework of the service, lies solely with providers or with the company providing said content. iMOVE assumes no liability for content, particularly not for errors, inaccuracies or incomplete information in association with content; no liability will be assumed for losses or damages which may incur as a result of content utilization.
In order to protect the quality of content provided, iMOVE expressly reserves the right to reject individual content accessible via the database and to exclude publication thereof in whole or in part. This applies, in particular, to the following banned content:
Content disguised as advertising, chain letters or surveys; unprofessional or false content; pornographic content and content that is offensive and otherwise unethical; content that is anti-constitutional or extreme or which originates from illicit groups; content that is punishable by law, particularly racist or offensive content; content that can impair, damage or destroy soft- or hardware, particularly content infected with a virus.
iMOVE reserves the right to correct or delete erroneous entries submitted by providers. Furthermore, iMOVE reserves the right to abridge or change unfavourable profile entries.
As a user of the iMOVE provider database, providers can create links to providers website or sources. iMOVE assumes no responsibility or liability for the availability of external sites or sources; does not adopt or claim ownership of content available via these sites or sources and is exempt from all liability or guarantee with respect thereto. Thus, iMOVE cannot be held responsible directly or indirectly for damages or losses incurred as a result of, or in connection with, utilization of content or as a result of material taken from said external sites or sources.
Use the provider database at your own risk. In each case, the services offered were found to be in good order by iMOVE and are offered subject to availability.
iMOVE does not guarantee that services offered will meet providers requirements or be available at all times, without interruption, be up-to-date, secure and without error. iMOVE does not accept any liability with respect to results which may be achieved by using the services, the accuracy and reliability of the information acquired within the framework of the services, or that the quality of goods, services or information acquired in connection with these services meet providers expectations. Furthermore, iMOVE does not guarantee that hard- and software used for the services will function perfectly at all times or that potential faults in the hard-or software will be corrected.
