Type of service

The collection database of COLLECTORBASE.net enables you to manage every object type in one single collection database.
Furthermore the database allows you to create presentations and private trading lists that can be disseminated via the internet.
You can use these functions for free with a CB-free account, or you can choose one of the payable subscription versions (CB-light, CB-supporter, CB-premium).

up

Allocation of features

COLLECTORBASE.net is in the middle of development. This means that different functions will come into operation gradually.

CB-supporter: the user of this account agrees to wait for a variety of functions until they are available. Therefore the fee for this account is 17 Euros/year less than the CB-premium account for the same service.

CB-premium: this account will be activated as soon as the first premium features are available. Nevertheless, CB-premium users agree to wait for additional premium features. This includes among other things the "budget manager", "free buildable statistics", at least eight various presentation ways, etc.
The specific timeframe in which additional features will be programmed cannot be specified, but normally it should not take more time than one month in between two features.

up

Subscription fee

If you use an account type with costs (CB-light, CB-premium, or CB-supporter) a subscription fee is due.
By paying the fee you have the right to use the collection database of COLLECTORBASE.net for one year.

A "Collectorbase.net subscription-Year" has 365 days and begins with the day of your registration to an account with costs. After 365 days a renewal fee is required in order to continue the subscription.

up

Subscription period / extension

The subscription lasts for each account type 12 months (365 days) and ends after this period. There is no automatic renewal.
To use the collection database of COLLECTORBASE.net without interruption, we will remind you on time to renew your subscription.

up

Switch to another account type

You can upgrade your account anytime (e.g. from CB-light to CB-premium). You just have to pay the difference to the desired account. The contract duration starts from the date of upgrade. It is not possible to downgrade within the contract period.

up

Electronic invoicing

The user agrees to receive the invoice exclusively as a PDF Document and via email.

Payment methods

Paypal
You may want to pay your annual fee immediately with Paypal.

Bank Transfer
If you want, you can also pay the amount by bank transfer (EU standard transfer within the EU is for free). Note with a bank transfer you have to identify yourself and therefore your bank transfer has to include your customer number and invoice number.
If it is not possible to identify your bank transfer, we will transfer the amount back minus a possible bank commission and two Euros processing fee.

up

Deferment of payment

A deferment of payment is possible for up to 60 days if notice is given prior to the renewal date. We will provide the formerly agreed service and the duration of the contract will not be affected.
Notification must be given when the payment is subsequently made during the 60 days period.

CAUTION: A deferral of more than 60 days is not possible.

up

What happens if the annual fee is not paid?

There are no overdue fines, collection charges or similar due in the case of overdue payment.
If you have not paid your fee after 14 days at the latest you will be automatically be downgraded to the CB-free account.

This has the following consequences for your archive:

    You can only manage up to 50 objects.
    If you have more than 50 objects in your database, the data for the most recent 50 objects only will be displayed.
    On all other private data you have no longer access.
    You can only use one predefined type of presentation and can activate only one presentation. You only have access to the simple commercial lists. It is not possible to create multiple lists.

Your data is not lost but will be accessible again as soon as the pending invoice has been paid.
Your subscription starts with the invoice date.

up

Trade in search and sales lists (commercial lists) / exclusion of liability

The allocation of the trading lists is another service of the collection database on COLLECTORBASE.net.
This refers to lists that show objects which you want to buy or sell. These lists are generated automatically from the collection database and can be disseminated by the user via a link.

CAUTION - Exclusion of liability
Trading based on these lists is exclusively private between the parties as individuals. COLLECTORBASE.net requires neither a commission nor takes any liability. Therefore we offer this service WITHOUT GUARANTEE. This means that we are not responsible in case of an unsatisfied deal. We are not going to intervene if any problems occur. COLLECTORBASE.net accepts no liability for defective items.

up

Data protection

COLLECTORBASE.net does not pass on personal data to third parties.

Your data will - together with the data of all other users - be used to create statistics and information that we will present to you.
One example is the current price or the price trend of a particular object.

This data can also be used to provide statistics to stores or manufacturers, for example to estimate the sales possibilities of upcoming products or the age-group demand for a particular product. However, only calculated and aggregated figures may be passed on; numbers may never be traced back to a single person.
In the future, there may be the possibility that stores can sell directly through COLLECTORBASE.net. In this case, stores may be provided with statistics on their clients' collections - IF permission is given. Again, only calculated and aggregated figures may be passed on (for example, no statistics provided for an object with under 10 customers) to avoid the identification of individuals.

If you delete your account with us, your personal data will be deleted irrevocably. Data such as purchase prices will remain in our possession as a historical record, for example, in order to be able to create trending.

up

Illegal collection

If your collection includes objects which infringe against morality or law (e.g childporn, hard drugs etc.) and/or you try to deal on such objects via COLLECTORBASE.net we reserve the right to forward your data to the police without notifying you or seeking your agreement.
We will never tolerate anything which can harm other persons.

COLLECTORBASE.net is a community based on trust. We do not tolerate any abuse.

up

Protection against insight of third parties

Within the frame of our technical/financial possibilities we endeavour to protect both your collection and your personal data.

Therefore we do not use any Server in countries where the State has access right to all data where we know about cases.

up

Image rights

You can use each photo that is available about COLLECTORBASE.net, or use your own images.
Your pictures can be used only in your presentation or in commercial lists, if you have specified who has the copyright to these images. By declaring your consent to using the image, you are declaring that you have indicated the correct copyright and that you know where the picture comes from and that is allowed to use them at COLLECTORBASE.net.

With your approval you allow us that other users can use your images. By doing this you are giving us the right to be able to use these images free of charges indefinitely.
Also other users can use those images then.

up

Violation of image rights

It is not possible to check every single image on COLLECTORBASE.net for its copyright.
If your image is used without permission on COLLECTORBASE.net, we will remove the image. A proof of your copyright over the image with the request that this is removed from COLLECTORBASE.net is fully sufficient to do this.
We will delete your picture after checking the copyright within two business days.
Alternatively we suggest that you rectify the copyright. So you have a further reference and an additional link. With your permission we will use your pictures permanently.

If you are still concerned about potential copyright infringement, simply talk with us.

up

Data security

Your data is backed up once a day. We are not liable for the loss of any data in the interval, nor are we liable to pay damages.
