Product Search provides the user with access to the database of products offered in the internet ("product database") made available by Become Europe GmbH. The individual offers are listed with a link to the website of the relevant internet shop.
1.2 These special conditions apply in addition to the general conditions of use of Become Europe. Insofar as these special conditions differ from the general conditions of use, these conditions take priority.

2. Availability Product Search is available to everyone. Registration is not necessary. For services provided by 1&1 Internet which do not require any registration or payment, the user is entitled to cease use at any time.

3. Service provided Product Search allows the user to browse the product database on the internet. To do this the user must be connected to the internet. The use of Product Search itself is free of charge to the user. 1&1 Internet expressly points out however that charges will be incurred for the internet connection for access to the internet and during the use of Product Search. Any costs incurred in this respect are not included in the services provided by 1&1 Internet.

4. Rights and Duties of the User
4.1 Each user of the services provided by 1&1 Internet carries full responsibility for his activities when using the 1&1 Internet site and associated services.
4.2 Any activities of the user which are aimed at making the services of 1&1 Internet or the 1&1 Internet site non-operational or which makes their use more difficult are prohibited and can be pursued by civil action and by criminal proceedings. In particular any activities are prohibited which could affect the physical and logical structure of the services.

This includes the right to introduce a requirement for payment for the Product Search. 1&1 Internet will give the user advance information of this where necessary.
