AV Stumpfl GmbH, entered under FN237609a of the Wels register of companies, (in the following referred to as ‘AV Stumpfl’, including the persons entrusted with the moderated operation of the forum, provides users with an Internet-based forum (in the following referred to as ‘Service’).
It is agreed that Austrian law, at the exclusion of standards of competence and referral under international law, shall be the applicable law and that the place of jurisdiction shall be the court in Wels, Upper Austria, which is competent in the subject matter.
Scope of services
The purpose and objective of the Service is to enable users of AV Stumpfl products to exchange experience and provide support.
The user is not entitled to participate in the forum. Active participation may not be obtained by legal action or enforcement of any kind. The Service is free of charge and AV Stumpfl cannot guarantee accessibility of the Service. AV Stumpfl has the right to expand, redesign or even withdraw the Service at any time at its own discretion and without giving reasons. Since it is impossible to provide a totally faultless free Service for all application sectors, the user has no claim to its availability, punctuality, accuracy or reliability.
AV Stumpfl does not provide support for third-party software used in connection with the Service. AV Stumpfl shall not be held liable for any damage caused by malware (viruses, botnets, backdoor and phishing programs, etc.).
Registration for the AV Stumpfl Service requires a retraceable e-mail address, first name, family name, postal address and telephone or fax number. The user undertakes to keep these details updated continually. The password is sent by post. Anonymous e-mail addresses are not accepted. When registering, the user may adopt a nickname, undertaking however not to use a name protected by copyright, patent, personal or proprietary rights and such like. For the event that it becomes aware of interference with third-party rights, AV Stumpfl reserves the right to cancel the registration concerned and to bar the user from further utilisation of the Service without thoroughly examining the rights impaired.
The user has the option of participating in the discussion under a nickname. However, he may not use several nicknames and thus virtually assume different ‘identities. A nickname may not be identical with the name of another person or institution or otherwise liable to be misunderstood. Once adopted, a nickname may be changed only in exceptional circumstances.
The user undertakes to keep secret and withhold from unauthorised third parties the passwords sent to him. Thus he is also responsible for any use of the AV Stumpfl community made in his nickname. The nickname belongs to the user on whose e-mail address it is registered. The user shall inform AV Stumpfl immediately of any misuse by third parties.
By registering the user expressly agrees to the use of his registration details which will be used exclusively by AV Stumpfl and not be passed on to third parties. In cases of requests for information justified under current law and data protection regulations, AV Stumpfl will check, store and if necessary pass on a user’s details.
The user’s contributions will be retained even following the user’s withdrawal from the forum without any entitlement on his part to deletion, remuneration or other claims.
Amendments of the terms of registration may be made at any time and without the user’s agreement and shall be specially indicated. The user shall regularly call up the terms of registration and agrees to the version in force at the time of his contribution.
Until further notice E-mails (newsletter) to the user will be sent to the e-mail address supplied. The registration may be countermanded at any time by either party.
AV Stumpfl operates an open discussion platform and expects from users an objective, fair and friendly discussion. Abuses, legally and morally dubious or highly unobjective contributions are not permitted. The user undertakes not to violate by content and form of the contribution any Austrian and international law in force.
Contributions to our discussion forums are accessible to all. Prior to publication, the user must carefully check his contributions for any information not destined for the public. The user has to expect search engines to capture his contributions so that they may be called up worldwide without specifically calling up our offering. Any claim for deletion or correction of such entries vis-à-vis AV Stumpfl is ruled out. We reserve the right to delete from the forums contributions which break these rules or create unrest and to suspend or close accounts.
Please note that the topic of each discussion forum is set by the article or the brief description concerned. It is not admissible to publish there announcements or comments on other topics. AV Stumpfl reserves the right to move user comments not appropriate to the forum topic concerned to other forums or to delete the same.
The user alone is responsible for the contents or extracts thereof published by him in the Service and undertakes not to use any publications covered by copyright or being the (intellectual) property of third parties or to use the same only with the agreement of the proprietor concerned.
It is not allowed to publish any private or commercial sales offers.
AV Stumpfl does not accept liability for the contents produced and provided by users. The user indemnifies AV Stumpfl for any claims entered against it by third parties on account of such contributions and the user himself shall not have any rights (of recourse). Such indemnification also applies to the cost of legal defence.
