Clarifying: LIMAKILO grants User the right to use its Services, which are provided online; no further rights and/or licenses are granted.
  4. LIMAKILO is entitled to immediately block the User account and/or published contents of the User if there is a reasonable suspicion that the stored data and/or contents are illegal and/or violate the rights of third parties. A reasonable suspicion for an illegality and/or a violation of rights is deemed in particular if courts, authorities and/or other third parties inform LIMAKILO thereof.

§ 4 Obligations of User

  1. The User shall not store, upload and/or publish any content that violates the law, official requirements or the rights of third parties.
