  2. You alone are responsible for your postings and photos transmitted. You undertake not to violate laws or other rules and regulations within your participation of Geobla. We reserve the right, at our own discretion, to immediately exclude you from membership and to remove your postings and images from Geobla in the event of violations of laws, good morals, these Terms of Use or upon other good cause shown.

  3. You hereby agree
    • not to transmit any content to Geobla which infringes copyrights or author’s rights or any other rights of third parties;

    • not to offer any products or services except for private purposes within the buy and sell forums provided and only in compliance with the content of the forum set up by us;

  4. We reserve the right but do not undertake any obligation to review, edit, delete or disable your postings or images if these are in breach of your obligations as a member or if they violate the law. This shall also apply if such violation is suspected. We may delegate this right, e. g. to other members. A claim to the publication of postings on Geobla does not exist.

  5. By transmitting content to our server you guarantee us that you have the right to make this content available for use. At the same time you grant us a right of use this content. This right of use granted to us comprises the revocable right to publication, distribution, transmission, reproduction in public, publication or similar use of the transmitted content on a worldwide scale, exclusively within the internet offer of Geobla or in our mobile apps, without any claim for remuneration for yourself or any third parties. You may exercise your right of revocation at any time by deleting your content. Excluded from the right of revocation are GPS data and associated text-based information on places, which can be changed and supplemented together with other members. This data remains on Geobla, even if you delete individual contributions or terminate your membership.

  6. You shall indemnify us from all claims of third parties that these may assert against us for infringement of their rights, notably of copyrights and user, license, competition or other proprietary rights, based on the content you transmitted. You shall reimburse us the costs of any legal defence which may arise as a consequence of your infringing content. You undertake to use your best efforts to support us in the handling of any third-party claims based on your content and notably to submit to us all documents that may be required for defence.

  7. The content of Geobla is protected by copyright and/or other proprietary rights. Their use shall be subject to the applicable copyright and other protection laws. Any use of such content, also in part, notably for commercial purposes, requires the prior consent of the holder of the rights.

  8. A right to participate in any raffle or competition held by us does not exist, and neither is there a right to be granted a prize. If the prize granted is defective, the winner shall only be entitled to delivery of a defect-free prize if we were unaware of the defect of the prize due to gross negligence.

  9. The content and correctness of offers in the buy and sell and bartering forums shall be the responsibility of the offering member. A contract shall be concluded only between the members involved. We do not act as agents. The implementation of such contract shall be your sole responsibility. Only you shall be responsible for mutual performance. We only offer the electronic platform for the conclusion of your contract and do not provide any further assistance in the implementation of the contract.

  10. By becoming a member you declare your consent to advertising being displayed.

  11. We and our vicarious agents shall only be liable for breach of contractual obligations and in tort only in events of intent and gross negligence unless cardinal obligations are affected and/or mandatory legal provisions exist to the contrary. To the extent legally permitted, we and our vicarious agents shall only be liable up to the amount of typically foreseeable damage. We do not guarantee that the offer of Geobla will be available without interruptions. Rectification of faults and maintenance works may make it necessary to interrupt the service and access to the offer. We reserve the right to change parts of the offer of Geobla. We do not accept any responsibility for contents to which you are transferred through a link which obviously takes you out of Geobla. We have no influence on the content of such third-party websites and do not appropriate such content either.

  12. We reserve the right to change these Terms of Use without stating reasons. We shall inform you in due time of such changes. If you do not disagree the Terms of Use shall be deemed accepted. If you disagree your membership shall be terminated.

  13. Should any provision of these Terms of Use be invalid or unenforceable, it shall be replaced by a valid or enforceable provision that comes as close as possible to the legal intention of the invalid or unenforceable provision. These Terms of Use and the entire legal relationship between you and us shall be governed by the laws of the Federal Republic of Germany. To the extent admissible, Berlin shall be agreed as place of jurisdiction for all legal disputes that may arise. In all other aspects the statutory provisions shall apply.
