Terms and conditions

In general

The general terms and conditions regulate the contractual relationship between Textination GmbH, Eichelhäherweg 10a, D-48155 Münster, as operator of www.textination.de or other TLD supplements (hereinafter referred to as Textination) and the registered users of this website. By registering with Textination you accept our terms and conditions. If you have any questions about our terms and conditions or the functioning of Textination, please contact us by e-mail (info@textination.de). Textination is a vertical industry portal for the textile industry for companies, institutions and the interested public.

Textination offers:

  • Information and presentation opportunities around the textile industry,
  • a tender service (GER & EU)
  • a directory platform (suppliers A-Z) and
  • Knowledge data bases such as TextileTechnology (in cooperation with Deutscher Fachverlag) or DownCheck (in cooperation with the VDFI).


§1. Directory Platform: Suppliers

The list of suppliers is open to juridical and natural individuals with unlimited legal capacity in the textile industry and associated industries, who can register here with a profile on the platform. Textination are prohibited to use the addresses, contact details and e-mail addresses obtained through the use of the Textination website for commercial advertising, unsolicited advertisements (such as spamming) and the like.


§2. Conclusion of the contract of use

Textination's services may be used upon filing a registration request and its acceptance by Textination. A claim for the use of the services of Textination does not exist. With the acceptance of the registration request by Textination, a contract of use is concluded between Textination and the registered user. The application is made by opening a user account in accordance with the present General Terms and Conditions. The acceptance by Textination takes place in written form (fax, letter or E-Mail) under confirmation of the account. When registering, the user of Textination receives a user name and a password. Only the password can be changed by the user. The password must be kept secret. A claim for the use of the services of Textination does not exist. The data requested by Textination in the application form must be complete and correct, e.g. company name, first and last name of the managing director(s), current address, telephone and fax numbers as well as a valid e-mail address. If there is a change in the data to be provided by the user in the application form, the user is obliged to correct the information immediately to Textination.


§3. Contract duration, termination

Contracts of use between Textination and the user will be finalized for a period of one year, beginning with the next first of the month following the application for registration. A prior ordinary termination is not possible. This does not affect the possibility of extraordinary termination. For this purpose, a written notice from the user to Textination GmbH, Eichelhäherweg 10a, D-48155 Münster or an e-mail to info@textination.de stating the reason for termination is sufficient. The right to block Textination remains unaffected by this regulation. The contract will be renewed for another year if it has not been terminated at least 3 months before expiration. If contracts of use are to be made for a period deviating from this regulation, Textination shall be contacted directly.


§4. Blocking the user account

Textination may suspend the user's account if the user violates the provisions of these terms and conditions or in the context of using the Textination platform against applicable law or another legitimate interest to protect other users against fraudulent activity. A pro-rata refund of the user fee does not take place in this case. Textination can block a user account especially if:

  • the user intentionally or grossly negligently made false statements when registering
  • the User violates intellectual property rights of third parties or the copyright in connection with the use of the Textination Platform
  • the user abuses services of Textination in connection with its use.

Textination will consider the legitimate interests of users when deciding whether to block a user account.


§5. Free use

The publication of:

  • company profiles (basic version and trade),
  • internships and apprenticeships opportunities
  • the first circuit of a job application

    are free of charge


§6. Fee based use (fees)

The use of the supplier directory, which goes beyond the basic package, as well as the use of our tender service and the database TextileTechnology are subject to a fee. The scope of use and the user fees result from the respective service packages. The service packages and the respective usage fees (price list) are available at https://textination.de/en/my-textination/becomemember or under BUSINESS, JOBS and TextileTechnology. The fees listed there are valid per company and contract period regardless of the amount of the data transfer volume. Per company a maximum of 500 individual accesses for employees may be set up independently. The individual fees are due for payment immediately. Textination sends the bill to the user by letter or e-mail.


§7. Exemption

The user exempts Textination from any claims that other users or other third parties assert against Textination for infringement of their rights by content posted by the user to the Textination website or published for publication or other use of the Textination website. The user also bears the costs of the necessary legal defense of Textination, including all legal and attorney's fees. This does not apply if the user is not responsible for the infringement.


§8. Availability of Textination

Textination will endeavor to ensure trouble-free operation but does not guarantee that its services are always available and error-free at all times. This applies in particular to the extent that access to the services and Textination website is caused by disruptions outside the scope of Textination. If cooperation partners who supply paid content for publication on www.textination.de (e.g. TextileTechnology) no longer provide this content, the user agreement (see § 6) can be terminated prematurely.


§9. Liability

Textination is liable for damages except in the case of a breach of material contractual obligations, only if Textination, its vicarious agents and / or legal representatives are guilty of intent or gross negligence. Except for intent and gross negligence, Textination, its vicarious agents and / or legal representatives have no liability for the compensation of indirect damages, in particular for lost profits. Except in cases of intent and gross negligence, the liability of Textination, its vicarious agents and / or legal representatives is limited to the damage foreseeable at the conclusion of the contract. The aforementioned disclaimers and limitations do not apply in the event of the assumption of express warranties and for damages resulting from injury to life, body or health or in the case of mandatory statutory regulations.


§10. Online dispute resolution procedures

The European Commission provides a platform for out-of-court online dispute resolution (so-called OS platform) at http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/. We are neither willing nor obliged to participate in a dispute settlement procedure before a consumer arbitration board.


§11. Severability clause

The law of the Federal Republic of Germany applies. The application of UN sales law is excluded. Textination reserves the right to change these terms and conditions at any time without giving reasons. A link to the changed conditions will be sent to the user by e-mail two weeks prior to the effective date. If the user does not object to the validity of the new terms and conditions within two weeks after receiving the e-mail, the changed terms and conditions shall be deemed accepted. If any provision of these Terms and Conditions is ineffective, the remaining provisions remain unaffected. The ineffective provision shall be deemed replaced by one which comes closest to the meaning and purpose of the invalid provision in a legally effective manner. The same applies to possible regulation gaps.
