Rights to website contents and their use
We, our guest authors and other providers of information reserve all copyrights and other legal rights to contents of the website, including layout.
The website contents may only be used for private purposes, not for commercial purposes. The presentation, publication, reproduction and transfer to third parties of website contents (including extracts), especially the use of articles, parts of articles or images, requires our written permission.
It is forbidden to change or remove copyright information and/or brand names and/or other information in the contents.
Any use of the contents for commercial purposes is forbidden without our written permission for individual cases. It is not permitted to set up a hyperlink on this portal if the website it connects to contains offensive material, glorifies violence, is racist and/or illegal.
We reserve the right to end or limit the website or parts thereof at any time. This particularly includes free services and provisions, especially those in an area where registration is required.
We expressly point out that users can also post contents within the portal. These statements, information, opinions, recommendations, photos, graphics, audio and video data are not by us and are not presented in our name. These are exclusively contents provided by portal users which are not checked by us and have been independently posted by users. It could be that the contents do not correspond to the truth or infringe the rights of third parties. It could also happen that the person said to be the sender is not the sender or the author of the content. Statements can be consciously made with the aim of misleading or deceiving the reader.
We will, of course, delete such statements among user-generated content and kindly request any relevant information to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Users should in no case use such statements as the basis for decisions. We cannot be responsible for such contents.
In areas where users can post on their own initiative such as readers’ contributions, on principle we only publish user-generated content with the full first and surname of the author, so that active participation under a pseudonym is not possible.
A user is given a password when registering for the portal. Your first name and surname should be used as your log-in name. A fictive log-in name is not possible. The user is responsible for not making his password accessible to third parties. The user takes full responsibility for all actions undertaken using his e-mail address in combination with his password as a log-in name.
The user shall immediately inform us of any misuse of his log-in name/registration as soon as it is noticed. In the case of such misuse we advise the user to change his password immediately. We and our guest authors exclude any liability for damages occurring due to unauthorized and/or incorrect use of a password-protected log-in of a user.
A user can cancel his access authorization to the portal at any time by giving notice, so that it will no longer be possible to access beginning well with his password and e-mail as log-in name. Any change to information given at registration should be notified immediately.
It is planned that registered users shall have the opportunity of posting their own content e.g. articles, photos, audio and video data (hereafter “user-generated content”).
When a user sends us content for publication he grants us free of charge, the perpetual, global, non-exclusive right to use the content in whole or in part and to reproduce, adapt, publish, translate, modify, rework, distribute and present it, to grant simple rights of use to third parties and to use the content in other works and/or media.
The user shall ensure that the content he publishes is correct and is not legally contestable. In this respect the user affirms that he is either the author of the content or has the relevant rights to publish the content and grant us the above-mentioned rights of use. Insofar as the content (e.g. photos, video etc.) depicts people, the user affirms that, where necessary, those people agree to publication.
We expressly point out that the whole internet presence of beginning well is intensively analyzed by various search engines and the contents are also listed there. This automatically includes user-generated content, so that this can also be found at any time on the internet via beginning well.
The user shall not post on the portal advertising of any kind nor content in breach of the law, especially right-wing extremist, pornographic, racist, offensive or libelous content damaging to reputation or business. In case of infringement we reserve the right to delete the relevant content and take legal action.
The Guidelines for readers’ contributions additionally apply for readers’ opinions (more information can be found lower down this page).
We reserve the right to delete user-generated content without consultation or notice and to exclude users from using particular areas or the whole website.
We do not guarantee that the contents meet the expectations of the user nor that he should achieve a particular goal with his content. We do not guarantee that the website is available to the user at any particular time. In particular we can therefore not guarantee that the data posted by the user will be permanently stored and permanently accessible in cases of malfunction, interruption or other possible breakdowns of the website.
The contents published on the portal also originate from third-parties. Neither we nor our information providers can guarantee that the contents are accurate, complete or up-to-date, so liability is excluded insofar as nothing else is agreed.
