1. Scope of Application

These Spryker Community Terms govern the registration for and the use of the platform provided under (the “Spryker Community Platform” aka "CommerceQuest") and are deemed to be accepted upon registration.

Use of the Spryker Community Platform is permitted only to businesses within the meaning of Section 14 of the German Civil Code (BGB) and their representatives who are of legal age (each a “User”). Spryker does not consider any of the Users to use the Community Platform in its capacity as a consumer.

Terms and conditions of a User or a  business such User represents do not apply.

2. The Community Platform

The Spryker Community Platform is provided by Spryker Systems GmbH, Heidestraße 9-10, 10557 Berlin, Germany ("Spryker") free of charge and aims at enabling customers, partners and interested third parties (the “Spryker Community”) to engage more with Spryker on its products and services

The Spryker Community Platform offers a place to discuss (e.g. in open discussions or around planned events), information resources, and support from Spryker. The Spryker Community Platform does not offer or replace customer support and must not be used to request it. Any provisions on customer support in the agreement between the respective customer and Spryker remains unaffected.  

3. Registration

In order to use the Spryker Community Platform, you must register by creating a password-protected user account (“Account”). You are not allowed to create an Account by automatic means, including by using automatic devices, scripts or robots, spiders, crawlers or scraper services.

You can do so by using the embedded registration form. The information requested by Spryker during registration (email address, username, first name, company, password, reason for wish to join the Spryker Community) must be provided completely and accurately. After having provided all required information and accepting these Spryker Community Terms, you can click on “Register”. This is considered your registration request.

After submission of your registration request, an administrator of the Spryker Community will review your registration request and approve it in their own discretion. The approval will be sent to you by way of an email (conclusion of the contract). You also will be asked to confirm your email address before you can use your Account.

If you have been a member of the Spryker Community in Slack prior to moving to the Spryker Community Platform, Spryker may initiate your registration by setting up an Account for you, send you an email and ask you to confirm your registration. 

4. User Accounts and User Profiles

You must keep your password confidential and carefully protect your Account against unauthorized access by third parties. If you become aware of any misuse of your Account by third parties, you must immediately inform Spryker.

After your registration is complete, you will have access to your Account, where you can personalize information about you and set your preferences.

Spryker will also use its own database and an additional community growth engine and aim at enriching your profile by connecting it to your public LinkedIn profile, Slack account, Twitter profile, Stackoverflow account, Reddit account or Youtube account.
