Principles and definitions
- Anyone who creates or modifies content for the wiki as an author is an active user. Anyone who wants to become an active user must register with a user name, a password and an e-mail address.
- Active and passive users are hereinafter jointly referred to as users.
- Unless otherwise indicated, all content on this website is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International (CC BY 4.0) This license permits sharing (reproduction and distribution in any format and media) and adaptation (remix, modification and construction on the licensed content) of the licensed content for any purpose, including commercial purposes. This is permitted on the condition that the name of the author is mentioned: Users must affix the appropriate copyright and rights notices, link to the license, and indicate whether any modifications have been made.
- All brand names and trademarks (e.g. MediaWiki) mentioned on this website and possibly protected by third parties are subject without restriction to the provisions of the applicable trademark law and the ownership rights of the respective registered owners. The mere mention of a trademark does not imply that it is not protected by the rights of third parties.
- This website contains links to third-party websites.
- According to the provisions of the German Telemedia Act (TMG), these websites are the responsibility of the respective website owners within the meaning of §§ 7 ff TMG.
- Hallo Welt! has checked the external content for possible legal violations when the external links were first created. Hallo Welt! has not, however, completely checked the contents referred to in the links for their correctness. Hallo Welt! also has no influence on the current and future design and content of the linked pages.
- The setting of external links does not mean that Hallo Welt! adopts the contents behind the reference or link as its own and/or is liable for their correctness. A constant control of the external links is not reasonable for Hallo Welt! without concrete evidence of legal violations or content errors and is also not provided for by law.
- However, in case of knowledge of legal violations, such external links will be deleted immediately. Should Hallo Welt! becomes aware that links refer to pages with obviously incorrect information, these links will also be deleted immediately.
Rights and obligations of users
- The active user declares that he/she is either the author of the content used by him/her, in particular the texts, or that he/she has duly acquired the rights to use them.
- Each active user agrees that all content of which he is the author himself is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International (CC BY 4.0) .
- The active user is responsible for the content and contributions used by him and posted on the wiki. Hallo Welt! is not obligated to check the legality of content before it is published or to regularly check its Internet pages for possible illegal content. Illegal content is content that offends common decency or general ethical sensibilities or violates intellectual, industrial or other property rights of third parties, in particular copyrights and trademark rights as well as general personal rights.
- The users of the platform are expressly informed that the dissemination of illegal content may be prosecuted. In such cases, Hallo Welt! is entitled and under certain circumstances obligated to remove such content immediately and to secure it for evidence purposes if it becomes aware of illegal or unlawful content or if it becomes aware of content that offends common decency. In these cases Hallo Welt! is entitled to exclude the respective user from further use of the platform.
- The user indemnifies Hallo Welt! from all claims of third parties due to the violation of their rights by illegal content posted by the user. In particular, the user must compensate Hallo Welt! for all damages that Hallo Welt! incurs as a result of third parties making claims against Hallo Welt! due to the violation of their rights.
