What are the terms of use about?

The WeValCo GmbH offers you via its network access to a variety of services including online tools, communication platforms and information. The terms of use contain regulations for the relationship between you as user and WeValCo GmbH as provider of these services. These regulations cover all current and future services including all new features and the websites and platforms on which these services are provided.

There may be more specific terms of use for individual services. These have priority over the general terms of use listed here.

back

May the terms of use change?

Yes, because we are constantly improving our services. We therefore reserve us the right to revise, remove or supplement services as well as to introduce or abolish restrictions of use. Therefore, we also reserve us the right to change these general terms of use at any time and if necessary without giving reasons. You will always find the current Terms of Use at the bottom of our website under the link “Terms of Use”. Of course, new terms of use only apply to all actions taken after the publication of the new terms of use.

If we change the terms of use, we will inform you. If new terms of use affect the regulations of current contracts, you will be informed ahead of time about the planned contract changes. You will also be given the opportunity to terminate the contract at least 30 days before the changes take effect. If you do not terminate it during this time, the new terms of use will take effect for you and we will inform you accordingly. If you object within 30 days, the WeValCo GmbH can terminate the contract with effect from the beginning of the new terms of use. Of course, all completed transactions remain unaffected.

Not all services require an account. When you create an account, all the information you provide during registration must be updated, complete and accurate. You will also need a username and password. You are responsible for keeping both secret and not sharing it with others. If you suspect that someone knows your user name and / or password and has gained or could gain unauthorized access to your account, you are obliged to change your access data and inform WeValCo GmbH immediately about the possible unauthorized access. The WeValCo GmbH is not liable for any damage caused to you or third parties as a result of unauthorized usage of your account with or without your knowledge. It is therefore possible that claims for compensation may be asserted against you arising from the use of your account by a third party. On the other hand, you are also not permitted to use the account of a third party.
