General Terms and Conditions / Terms of Use

1. Preliminary remarks, validity

Laserscanning Europe GmbH operates an Internet portal at www.laserscanning-europe.com that enables natural persons and companies to use services and/or trade in goods and services of all kinds.

Contractual partners (users) can only be natural persons with full legal capacity as well as legal entities.

Users of the internet services (website, forum) are not consumers in the sense of the law.

By using the Internet services of Laserscanning Europe GmbH, visitors/users/contractual partners (hereinafter referred to as "users") agree to the terms of use defined herein. All users declare their agreement by confirming that they have read and accept the General Terms and Conditions of Business/Terms of Use already in the context of partial use of a website. Partial use of a website exists as soon as it is called up in a stationary or mobile Internet browser.

Contractual supplements concerning the use of special services, for which a registration at Laserscanning-Europe.com is necessary, become legally effective as soon as the user has successfully registered at Laserscanning-Europe.com. A successful registration comes into effect with the formulation of a corresponding confirmation on the Laserscanning-Europe.com website or by e-mail.

If users do not agree to the Terms of Use, they may not use any features of the Web site. If users do not agree with any part of these Terms of Use, but still use any services/features of the website, they release the authors/responsible persons/associates from any legal responsibility in the sense of the respective valid legal regulations.

Furthermore, only those persons may use services/features of the website who have already reached the age of 18.

Any terms and conditions of the user that are inconsistent with these Terms of Use shall not be considered unless Laserscanning-Europe.com agrees to them in writing.

In any contractual relationship with Laserscanning-Europe.com, these Terms of Use shall apply even if Laserscanning-Europe.com does not specifically refer to them in connection with the use of other services, such as those for which a fee is charged.

Laserscanning-Europe.com is entitled to subcontract the provision of some or all of the services to third parties. In such case, these Terms of Use shall also apply.

Laserscanning-Europe.com reserves the right to modify these Terms of Use at any time. Users will be informed of any changes regarding existing contractual relationships in a timely manner by e-mail. The contracting parties are granted a right of termination for a period of 6 weeks after notification of the changed terms of use. After expiry of this period, the contractual relationship shall continue on the basis of the new terms of use.

2. Scope of services

This forum serves the exchange of opinions of like-minded people, people looking for contact, information gathering and much more. The usage should be enjoyable for all of us. Therefore, we ask you to read and agree to the following terms of use before joining the forum. By joining the forum you accept by explicit confirmation (see below) all the following regulations:

Joining the forum is only allowed with an email address that explicitly identifies you as the sender. It is forbidden to join under a false name as well as using bogus e-mail addresses of any kind.

Only one account per forum member is allowed.

Please note that you are not allowed to share your password with others. Each forum user is allowed to access and/or use the forum only with their own credentials, not with third party credentials.

Please note that the forum operators are not responsible for the content. Despite all precautions, security devices and even good intentions, we by no means guarantee the identity of the authors, the correctness and usability of content of any kind. All content does not necessarily reflect the opinions of the forum operators.

It is not allowed to use this forum and its contents for commercial purposes without the express written consent of the operators - outside of forum areas expressly marked for this purpose. Should it be apparent to the moderators that the general forum is being used primarily for advertising purposes, even if only indirectly, they will remove the relevant links from threads.

We would like this forum to be characterized by a certain quality. Therefore, please grant your discussion partners in the forum the respect they deserve by using appropriate words, spelling as correctly as possible, and being polite. Personal hostility, disparagement and amusement at the expense of other forum participants are expressly undesirable. The administrators are instructed to pay particular attention to the fair treatment of all participants.

The creation of multiple topics or posts with the same content is expressly prohibited.

The forum operators have the right to delete topics or posts without giving a reason. This applies in particular if there are violations of the terms of use formulated here.

Instructions from administrators and moderators should be the exception in a forum. If they occur nevertheless, these instructions are to be considered expressly.

Within the scope of their forum activities, the forum moderators and experts pass on their knowledge to other members free of charge. By using this forum and in particular by making use of the help/advice provided, you release all moderators and experts from any conceivable liability.

Please note that help/advice that you request via PN or other direct contact with the moderators/experts may be subject to a charge.

The personal data stored during registration will not be shared by us with third parties or used to create spam email lists.

By joining and/or using the forum, you agree not to post any topics, amounts, links, etc. in the forum that are not truthful, that contain slander, hatred, violence, pornography, threats, that are obscene, that violate the privacy of others, that discriminate against other people's groups, minorities, etc., that are against morality or that violate any existing laws. You further agree not to violate any trademark and/or copyright laws, to refrain from spamming, flooding, advertising messages, chain letters, advertising any form of pyramid schemes, pyramid games, etc. These instructions also apply to the choice of your member name as well as for any photos and drawings posted in your profile and/or postings.

All prohibitions also apply to any references, links, etc. in the signature.

Since the forum is not monitored continuously, rule violations may not be removed immediately. Therefore we do not take any responsibility for the content of the users of our forum. Each user is responsible for his own activities in the forum and takes the forum operator insofar as possible from the obligation.

We reserve the right, without explicitly giving reasons, to temporarily or completely revoke the writing permission of participants, to block accounts or to permanently deny forum members access to the forum. This applies not only to violations of the rules of use, but also to repeated violations of the general forum peace. Corresponding cases will be logged internally for any necessary proof. In the event of violations of these Terms of Use, the offending party must expect further legal action.

If a member is excluded from the forum, he is prohibited from registering again without the express consent of the forum management. He is also forbidden to participate in the forum life in any way using a third party account. A violation may result in criminal charges for trespassing and coercion, as well as possible claims for damages.

These forum conditions apply to the entire forum, all open and all closed forum parts. They can be changed and adapted at any time. Any adjustment will be published on the forum. With the further use of the forum after the publication each user declares his agreement to the changed terms of use.

Laserscanning-Europe.com does not guarantee that a successful contact will be made and is therefore not liable if no contact is made within the specified contract period (if any, e.g. for paid services, delete as appropriate).

The user can add personal information, descriptions, photos, etc. within his profile, which are helpful for the communication with other users. Please note: Laserscanning-Europe.com reserves the right to take civil action against any user who intentionally or fraudulently provides false information in his or her profile or in other areas of the portal, and will terminate the existing contractual relationship without notice. Laserscanning-Europe.com is also entitled to verify the identity of the user by means of appropriate official documents and to delete the user if necessary - e.g. in case of incorrect information.

Contact is made via system-internal e-mails or via the offered service phone numbers.

A user is entitled to unsubscribe in writing or by e-mail at any time without giving reasons. The previously concluded contractual relationship is terminated upon deregistration.

The current prices published on the website apply to all services and products.

All prices do not include the statutory sales tax.

Payment can be made by prepayment, Paypal or credit card.
Any other method of payment is not possible.

A right to set-off is excluded and thus only applies if Laserscanning-Europe.com agrees to a possible set-off or if the user can assert legally binding counterclaims against Laserscanning-Europe.com.

7. Place of jurisdiction, severability clause

For the present general trading conditions/terms of use as well as all further agreements of the contracting parties (users) with the Laserscanning-Europe.com exclusively the right of the Federal Republic of Germany (FRG) is applicable.

Should any provision of these terms and conditions be or become invalid in whole or in part, the validity of the remaining provisions shall not be affected thereby. Should individual provisions of this contract be wholly or partially ineffective or lose their effectiveness at a later date, this shall not affect the validity of the remainder of the contract. The ineffective provision shall be replaced by the parties by an effective provision which corresponds as far as possible to the economic purpose of the ineffective provision. The same shall apply to any loopholes in the contract.

Cancellation policy

The user may revoke his declaration of intent to enter into a contract (use of services against payment) within two weeks without giving reasons in writing to (Laserscanning Europe GmbH), by fax or by sending an e-mail.

The time limit begins with the receipt of these instructions. The timely dispatch of the revocation is sufficient to meet the deadline.

In the event of an effective revocation, the services received by both parties shall be returned to each other. The user will be invoiced for any paid services already received.

The member's right of withdrawal expires prematurely if Laserscanning-Europe.com has begun to provide services for a fee with the explicit consent of the member before the end of the withdrawal period or if the user has initiated the provision of services for a fee, for example, by sending a message.
