2. Use of the film offering

In principle, the platform can be accessed via the internet and accessing individual pages does not require any registration. In order to use the video service, it is necessary to log in to the streaming portal via the ‘Register’ button.

The user needs a valid library id card and a password to do this. It is necessary that the user's library offers the service of myfilmfriend.com.

After successfully logging in, the entire video offering can be used free of charge and without restrictions, while taking into account the age ratings of individual films as appropriate.

3. Obligations of the user

The user may not hand over their password to third parties and must keep it protected from access by third parties. If there is reason to suspect that unauthorised persons have gained knowledge of the password, the user must immediately request a new password.

Using the streaming service requires that the user have an internet connection through any provider. A DSL broadband internet connection with a download speed of at least 2,000 Kbit/s and a flat rate tariff are recommended. Bandwidths below this recommendation may lead to waiting times or interruptions. Additional costs, which will be invoiced by the internet provider, may arise for the use of VoD services depending on the provider and tariff of the internet connection used, especially in the case of time or volume tariffs.

It is the user’s responsibility to ensure that their device meets the necessary system requirements for playing the videos and that the internet connection has the necessary speed. The user may not post any illegal, racist, sexist, pornographic, discriminatory, defamatory or insulting content when submitting comments. myfilmfriend, Inc. reserves the right to review and release the content as well as delete it.
