1. Field of application

The present Conditions of Use apply to the SmartCatalog App and the SmartCatalog website (hereinafter referred to as "App") of Plasser & Theurer, Export von Bahnbaumaschinen, Gesellschaft m.b.H. (hereinafter called "Plasser & Theurer").

By installing and using the App and the SmartCatalog website, the User consents to these Conditions of Use as amended.

2. Using the App

Authorised employees of Plasser & Theurer customers, as well as employees of customers of Plasser & Theurer service partners and / or representatives, are entitled to use the App.

It allows the rapid identification of spare parts in machine-specific catalogues via smartphone, tablet computers, in the online or offline mode. Furthermore, the User can send non-binding spare part inquiries or lists of inquiries or requests for catalogues on their machines to Plasser & Theurer or the Plasser & Theurer service partner or representative in charge of the respective geographical region.

After downloading the App, the User sends a request for registration.  Upon receipt of a request for registration, Plasser & Theurer verifies that the User is an employee of the company indicated by them. Requests for catalogues with missing or erroneous data will also be verified. This verification is made with the employer indicated, or by addressing the service partners or representatives in charge of the respective geographical region who support Plasser & Theurer’s customers on the spot. When this request for registration has been finished affirmatively, the User will receive their personal access data (User name and password). Plasser & Theurer is entitled to decline users for submitting incomplete or misleading data, or for other reasons.

Plasser & Theurer on their own assign the User to a service partner in charge of the geographical region or to one of their representatives. The assignment to a geographical region is carried out based on the employer indicated by the User upon registration, as well as their collaboration with Plasser & Theurer or with one of their service partners or representatives. After this assignment, Plasser & Theurer or, respectively, their service partner or representative, exclusively obtain and / or control all requests for catalogues and spare parts.

In order to prevent the App from being used without authorisation, annual checks will be carried out to verify that the User is still employed by the company (Plasser & Theurer customer, service partner or representative) indicated upon registration. For this verification, Plasser & Theurer or the service partner in charge of the respective geographical area, will send an inquiry to the employer indicated by the User. If the result of this check is that the User is no longer employed by the customer, their access will be deactivated. They will not be able to continue to use the App.

The use of the App is free of charge for the User. Plasser & Theurer point out that data transfer expenses might arise with the Internet provider, which the User has to bear himself. If additional software or other contents are necessary to be able to use the App, Plasser & Theurer will notify the User in good time.

The User is not allowed to amend, copy, disassemble, re-assemble, publish, reproduce ("reverse engineer") or duplicate the App. The User may only use the App for the purpose of their employer's business, whose name they have indicated at the time of registration. If the User leaves their employer's company, they will no longer be entitled to use the App. The User must not make the App accessible to Third Parties.
