In order to protect the user against unauthorized deletion of his customer account by third parties, the operator may be entitled to perform an identity verification during the deletion, e.g. by sending an email with which the user must confirm the final deletion.

 

 

G. Warranty for services

 

The Operator shall not be liable for any direct, indirect, special losses and/or damages suffered by the Users as a result of the use of services provided by the Operator and which are associated with a malfunction in the communication or power lines, failures of the mobile phone operators, the effects of harmful software, unfair actions by third parties which are intended to gain unauthorised access to and/or the decommissioning of the software and/or hardware by the Operator, as well as circumstances of force majeure. In such cases, the Operator is not obliged to reimburse any losses incurred by the Users.

 

The operator is only liable for culpably caused damages from injury to life, body or health, for intentional or grossly negligent damages caused by the operator, the legal representatives or vicarious agents of the operator. Otherwise, the Operator shall only be liable for the slightly negligent breach of duties, the fulfilment of which is essential for the proper performance of the services and on the observance of which the User may regularly rely (cardinal duties) and limited to the contractually typical, foreseeable damage. The above limitation of liability applies accordingly to the personal liability of the operator's legal representatives and vicarious agents.

 

The liability according to the product liability law remains unaffected.

 

The operator reserves the right to change, supplement, delete and/or discontinue parts of the services, the services as a whole and/or individual functionalities and/or the entire offer without separate notice, e.g. to implement a court ruling and/or an official decision; in the event of changes to the law; to close security gaps or to expand the offer.

 

 

H. Responsibility of the Operator for User Contents and Contents of Third Parties

Users' own content may contain subjective representations, facts, opinions and ratings for which the respective user is responsible. Contents of users are not checked and/or monitored by the operator before publication, the operator does not adopt the contents of users as his own. The operator therefore assumes no responsibility for the content, data and/or information provided by users. The same applies to content on linked external websites. The operator does not guarantee the correctness of the content of either user content or content on third-party sites. Should the Operator become aware of content of any kind that is illegal and/or violates these Terms of Use, the Operator reserves the right to immediately block and/or delete this content - even without prior notification of the User.

 

 

I. Violations of Terms of Use by the User

 

In the event of a violation of these Terms of Use, the Operator reserves the right to block and/or permanently delete the User's customer account temporarily or permanently - including the respective content.

 

 

Part IV Final Provisions

 

Changes to the Terms of Use

The operator reserves the right to update these terms of use from time to time. Users will be informed about the change in due time and in a suitable manner (e.g. by email, push message, notification in the customer account). The use of the services depends on the valid version of the terms of use. If the user does not object within a period of 6 weeks after notification, the terms of use shall be deemed approved. If a service continues to be used after the changes have come into effect, the user declares his agreement to the changed terms of use.
