Registration on the Website/data for people under the age of 16

Some data is collected simply through use of the Website (more details regarding this can be found in our privacy policy).

Since it is not always possible for us to precisely determine the age of users, however, we are not able to rule out the possibility that our offerings/services may nevertheless occasionally obtain personal data from people under the age of 16 without the consent of their parents or legal guardians. If we discover that people under the age of legal consent have registered on our Website without the consent of their parents or legal guardians, we reserve the right to exclude such offerings/services for these people, to block them or to erase the data.

The users undertake to provide correct and complete information during registration and in particular not to infringe the rights of third parties here. An infringement of the rights of third parties occurs if a third party's personal data or other information is used without their consent, among other things (e.g. name, email address).
