Directions for use of GEZE MediaPool

GEZE provides users of the GEZE portal with files containing free images of products and installation situations. The use of the MediaPool and its contents is permitted under the following conditions.

Users have the non-exclusive and non-transferable right to use images and files in their own advertising, such as print media (e.g. brochures, posters, flyers and advertisements in publications of third parties) and online media (e.g. their own websites and advertisements on third-party websites). GEZE retains all existing rights to the images.
Users must have each individual use authorised in advance by GEZE. For this purpose, files of advertising materials must be sent for release in advance to Only after written consent from GEZE may the materials be used. GEZE will agree to relevant requests promptly.
It is prohibited to integrate the files in advertising or media, the contents of which violate statutory regulations and/or morality, that is to say in particular contents that glorify violence or are sexually explicit or contain discriminatory, insulting or defamatory statements about race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation or age.
The user is not authorised to make changes in the files.
Private use is also prohibited, as is use of images on auction sites (such as eBay).

Users must be properly registered and have accepted these terms and conditions of use. Registration may be cancelled at any time by the user by de-registration. GEZE reserves the right to reject individual registrations or to withdraw the right to use at any time.
The collected data is exclusively used by GEZE for security purposes and are not disclosed to unauthorised third parties.

All files used must be published with the identification ©GEZE GmbH, as well as the photographer's name.

Scope and contents of the image database are at the discretion of GEZE and can be changed at any time. GEZE accepts no liability with regard to currentness, functionality, quality, availability or completeness of images.
If the internet site is not usable, GEZE accepts no liability. Nor does GEZE accept liability for loss that may arise from or in connection with the use of MediaPool.
GEZE only accepts liability in cases of intent or gross negligence as well as in injury to life, body and health. In cases of slight negligent breach of fundamental obligations, GEZE is liable according to the amount of typically foreseeable loss, which in no case exceeds € 1,000. This also applies to loss due to consequential damage.

GEZE reserves the right to modify these terms and conditions for use at any time. You will be informed about such changes by email, at least, 30 days before they come into effect. The further use of the GEZE MediaPool after a change goes into effect is considered to represent acceptance of said change. The user shall be specifically informed of this legal consequence in the context of the information.

Should one or more provisions of these terms and conditions of use be partially or entirely ineffective, the remaining provisions shall continue to be effective. In such a case, the parties undertake to agree on a legally binding clause that comes as close as possible to the regulatory purport of the partially or entirely ineffective clause.

German law applies.
Place of jurisdiction is Stuttgart.

Terms of standards

The standards may be printed out, copied or sent by email within the GEZE group of companies for use within GEZE with the proviso that they must not be passed on to third parties outside of the company in any form. This would represent an infringement of the licensing rights held by the Beuth Verlag publishing house. Consequently, the standards have a pointer to the download options from Beuth Verlag in the left hand margin.
