Specific Terms and Conditions for Advanced Finder Services

Common Principles
RegProtect offers to its users advanced finder services which are priced and need to be purchased by the user.

Finder services may also be offered in co-operation with partners. If specific terms and conditions apply due to the respective co-operation we will inform you of these conditions in a separate communication.

Services and Benefits
RegProtect delivers to the users of an advanced finder service the corresponding materials for the identification of objects and valuables (e.g. stickers, key rings, etc). The complete list of RegProtect services and corresponding materials can be looked at and ordered on the website www.regprotect.com.

The materials are equipped with distinct and anonymous codes - the RegProtect Codes. Based on these RegProtect Codes the objects and valuables that are marked with these materials can be clearly and unambiguously identified.

Registration of Objects
The delivered materials will have to be activated once by the user at www.regprotect.de. Following activation each object you want to register should be attributed a RegProtect Code.

Protection of Personal Data with Advanced Finder Services
Your personal data remains anonymous for the finder of your objects. Also, your Email address will not be known to the finder while contact is established via the RegProtect platform: Using the RegProtect Number attached to the object the finder can make contact to the user (owner) via www.regprotect.de /.com .

The currently valid prices for the advanced finder services can be consulted in our Price List.

Key Finder Service
Key rings from RegProtect can easily be sent by the finder without any further packing via normal mail to the RegProtect Service Centre (the finder simply deposits keys and key ring in any post box).

For keys that thus arrive at the RegProtect Service Centre, RegProtect will inform the user about the finding by using the contact details the user registered at RegProtect and agree an address the keys should be sent to. RegProtect users agree for their own benefit to keep contact details registered at RegProtect (phone number, e-mail) constantly updated. Costs attached to the return shipment of found keys to an address in Germany (postage, packing, etc.) will be covered by RegProtect for a maximum of two cases per key ring and contract year. Costs arising for additional cases or for return shipment to addresses outside of Germany will be charged to the user.

Storage and Return of Keys
RegProtect will store registered keys and key rings that are sent to the RegProtect Service Centre free of charge for a period of six months. The six-months period starts with the date of the first communication about the found keys to the user.

If for reasons that RegProtect is not responsible for (e.g. because a user has not updated his contact information) found keys/key rings cannot be returned to the user within this six months period, any claims of the user against RegProtect concerning these keys/key rings will be invalid.

Liability for the Storage of Keys
During the storage of the keys in the RegProtect Service Centre RegProtect assumes liability only for the kind of accuracy RegProtect is used to apply to its own affairs.

Liability for the Shipment of Keys
RegProtect assumes no liability for loss or damage of keys caused by or during the shipment by third parties. This applies to the shipment of keys from the finder to RegProtect as well as the shipment from RegProtect to the legitimate addressee of the keys.

With handover of the keys to a adequate enterprise (e.g. post, parcel services, etc.) the liability for loss or damage is transferred to the user. Potential claims against a third party charged with the shipment will be assigned to the user be RegProtect. RegProtect will support users with the enforcement of their claim within limits of reasonable resource and feasibility.
