In the case of a simple registration, Kickbase cannot technically determine with certainty whether the registered user is actually the person the user claims to be. Kickbase therefore does not guarantee the actual identity of the user. Users must therefore, if necessary, convince themselves of the identity of other users.
In case of incomplete or incorrect data in the mandatory fields, especially in case of an incorrect e-mail address, Kickbase reserves the right to delete the respective user. The user may, however, create a new user account by entering his or her data completely and correctly. The content posted by users in the public area of their profile, in particular e.g. the user and league name, texts and photos, will be made available to other users if required, in the context of the game.
Content may only be posted by users if they are the authors and/or possess sufficient rights (such as rights of use and, if applicable, exploitation rights) for this use and if they are permitted to use it, in particular to reproduce it publicly, make it publicly accessible, edit it and sublicense it.
If content is posted, in particular e.g. photos on which other persons can be recognized in addition to users, this may only be done if the consent of the third person(s) has been obtained
Users are further prohibited in particular from:
- to harass other users unreasonably (in particular through spam), e.g. to send game invitations to e-mail addresses of other players whose presumed consent for this has not been obtained.
- to post content protected by law (e.g. by copyright, trademark, patent, design patent or utility patent law) or to advertise, offer or distribute goods or services protected by law without being entitled to do so and without having received the consent for this from Kickbase.
- to distribute and publicly reproduce third party generated content of the Game outside of the Game, if and to the extent that this is not done through the functions of the Game provided for this purpose; in doing so, own user generated content may be further distributed, unless it infringes the rights of third parties or contains parts of the Game.

In particular, it is not guaranteed that this content is true, fulfills a specific purpose or can serve such a purpose. In the event that users become aware of any use of the Game in violation of the law or this Agreement, Kickbase shall be notified immediately.
By posting content in the public area of the user account, users grant Kickbase a royalty-free, sublicensable simple right of use to the content in the context of the game as well as its promotion, with the right to use the content in all known types of use.

There will be no refund of paid amounts. Furthermore, the subscription memberships must be cancelled by the user and will not be automatically cancelled by Kickbase.

The game is available during the respective use within the framework of the technical and operational possibilities with an availability of 98.0% on a monthly average. Excluded from this are maintenance work as well as disruptions that occur outside of operations, e.g. due to severe weather or internet disruptions.

Kickbase is liable in accordance with the statutory provisions for damages of users caused by intentional or grossly negligent conduct of Kickbase or its vicarious agents as well as for personal injury and damages under the Product Liability Act.
In all other respects, Kickbase's liability for claims for damages - irrespective of their legal basis - is limited in accordance with the following provisions, unless otherwise stipulated in a guarantee given by Kickbase:
Kickbase is liable for damages caused by slight negligence only to the extent that they result from a breach of material contractual obligations (cardinal obligations). Cardinal obligations are those contractual obligations whose fulfillment is essential for the proper execution of the contract and on whose fulfillment the users could rely. As far as Kickbase is liable for simple negligence, Kickbase's liability is limited to the typically foreseeable damage. Kickbase's liability for the loss of data and/or programs caused by Kickbase's slight negligence is limited to the typical recovery effort which would have been incurred if the user had backed up the data regularly and appropriately under the circumstances. The provisions of the preceding paragraphs shall apply mutatis mutandis to a limitation of the obligation to compensate for futile expenses (§ 284 BGB). The above limitations of liability also apply in favor of Kickbase's vicarious agents. Kickbase is not liable for any costs incurred by users due to the use of services which are explicitly not offered by Kickbase itself. This applies in particular to costs due to data transfer to or from the users' mobile device.
Should any of the provisions of these Terms and Conditions of Participation be or become void, the validity of the remaining provisions of the Terms and Conditions of Participation shall remain unaffected. The invalid provision shall be deemed to be replaced by a provision that comes as close as possible in economic terms to the meaning and purpose of the invalid provision in a legally effective manner. The same shall apply to any loopholes.
