1.1 The services you are registering for are offered by Checkdent, s.r.o. domiciled at Kopcianska 10, SK-85101 Bratislava, IDN 45 931 381 (hereinafter also referred to as “Checkdent” or “we”). Checkdent offers you the use of its services on the basis of these terms and conditions of use. By registering for or using our services you agree to the application of the terms and conditions of use. You may not use the services offered if you do not wish to be bound by these terms and conditions of use.
1.2 Checkdent reserves the right to amend the terms and conditions of use with future effect. In this case, Checkdent will notify you of amendments to the terms and conditions of use in advance and will draw your attention to the fact that the amendments will be deemed accepted if you do not reject them within four weeks, or when you next use the service. We may also inform you of amendments to these terms and conditions of use by publishing notices or links on our website.

2. Registration, eligibility requirements, legally binding declarations
2.1 Only users who have full legal capacity or who act with their legal representative’s consent are eligible to use the services.
2.2 You are obliged to provide truthful, accurate, up-to-date and complete information as requested on the registration form, and to keep your data up-to-date and correct at all times in your member account.
2.3 We wish to draw your attention to the fact that you may receive legally binding declarations (e.g. confirmation e-mails, amendments to the terms and conditions of use) by e-mail. In particular, these shall be deemed to have been received if, under normal conditions, they can be accessed in your mailbox on our website.
2.4 Your member account shall be neither transferable nor inheritable.
3. Termination, blocking of your member account
3.1 You may delete your member account at any time and for any reason. Checkdent will then delete the data stored on your behalf.

3.2 You agree that Checkdent may terminate your password, your member account (or parts thereof or certain content contained therein), or any other use of our services by you at its own discretion and for any reason, and may delete any of your content. This shall apply particularly if you have not used the Checkdent services for an extended period of time, i.e. for at least six months after initially registering for the Checkdent services, or for at least six months after your last registered use, or if Checkdent has reason to presume that you have violated these terms and conditions of use or have acted contrary to fundamental principles of the terms and conditions of use.
3.3 You agree that your access to the Checkdent services may be interrupted in accordance with the provisions of this agreement without prior notice and/or your consent, and that Checkdent may immediately block or delete your member account and all information and files without prior notice and/or your consent and/or prohibit any further access to such files or to the services.
3.4 In the event that your member account is deleted, you may only access our services again with our prior express written consent. Neither may you allow a user whose member account has been deleted or blocked to use your member account to access the services.
3.5 The obligations contained in figures 4.2, 4.3, 5, 6, 9, 10, 11, 12 and 13 of these terms and conditions of use shall continue to apply even after the member account has been deleted if their application relates to your behaviour prior to the deletion.
4. General duties of the user
4.1 You must ensure that your member account is used only by you personally and must keep your password secret to this end.
4.2 You accept that the registered holder of a member account is fully responsible for all activity connected with his or her member account. If you have permitted another person, e.g. a minor, to use your account without the consent of his or her legal guardian, you accept full responsibility for this user’s actions, for controlling their access, and for their use of the services and the consequences of any misuse.
4.3 You will inform us immediately in writing of any improper use of your password or member account, and of any other violation of security measures, and shall be liable to Checkdent for any misuse of your member account caused by you.
4.4 You will procure the enabling technology you require to use the services (e.g. Internet connection, mobile phone connection) yourself at your own expense.
4.5 You undertake not to take any actions which could affect the functioning of our services (e.g. by means of software or other scripts). In particular, you undertake not to use “robot”, “spider” or “offline reader” software which generates user requests automatically over the Internet. Neither will you modify, overwrite, copy or distribute areas of the website, including areas belonging to other users, which have not made provided by us for this purpose. You shall be held fully liable for damage caused by any of the above actions.

Any liability and/or possible claims for compensation against ourselves shall be excluded in this regard.

5.2 Checkdent does not generally monitor content that you or other users store, publish and/or transmit using our services and therefore accepts no liability and/or responsibility for the correctness, adequacy and quality of such content.

You are aware that by using the services you may be exposed to content of an offensive or otherwise objectionable nature if the user responsible for this content does not adhere to the provisions of these terms and conditions of use or the relevant laws.

  • save, publish and/or transmit data, text, files, links, software or other content that is illegal, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, hateful, racist or in any other way objectionable under the relevant statutory provisions or in the opinion of Checkdent, or which could cause harm to minors in any way, in particular content that is pornographic, glorifies violence, or is otherwise harmful to young people;
  • save, publish and/or transmit content that violates the rights of third parties, in particular patents, trademarks, copyrights and related rights, business secrets, personal rights or ownership rights;
  • save, publish and/or transmit material that contains software viruses or other information, files or programs that are intended for or capable of disrupting or limiting the function of computer software or hardware, or of telecommunications equipment;
  • save, publish and/or transmit content that you are not entitled to circulate;
  • impersonate another person within the scope of the Checkdent services, e.g. a representative of Checkdent or another person responsible for the services, or profess to a non-existent relationship to such persons;
  • falsify headers or manipulate identifying features in any other way in order to conceal the origin of content transmitted within the scope of the services;
  • save, publish and/or transmit unsolicited adverts, promotional material, junk or mass e-mails (spam), chain letters, snowball schemes or other advertisements;
  • breach national or international laws including exchange rules (e.g. those of the New York Stock Exchange, the American Stock Exchange, the NASDAQ or the Frankfurt Stock Exchange) in connection with the use of our services;

6. Users’ content
6.1 Checkdent permits you to use our services in compliance with the statutory provisions and the provisions of these terms and conditions of use in order to save, publish and transmit content, and to share it with other users. Checkdent does not check this content. Only the author shall be held liable for this content.

6.2. You guarantee that the content you transmit (text, images, videos, audio etc. in digital form) does not violate the rights of third parties (including their personal rights and ownership rights) and that you have the rights of use required to fulfil this agreement, and that you have, at no point in the past, either wholly or partially entered into an undertaking contrary to the granting of rights under this section. If you are prevented from making one of the above assurances for legal reasons, or if you doubt your capacity to do so, you must inform us immediately upon becoming aware of the actual or perceived legal obstacle, and issue the information specified in section 7.2 of these terms and conditions of use. If the legal obstacle or uncertainty cannot be resolved within a reasonable period, that is to say within 10 days at the latest, we shall be entitled to withdraw from the agreement with you and to immediately block or delete the relevant content available on the Checkdent website, to terminate any other use of our services by you, and to delete your member account and any content associated therewith.

6.3. You shall be held liable for any infringement of rights and undertake to reimburse us for all damages and costs incurred as a result thereof without delay at our first request. You undertake to release us from any liability pursuant to section 11 of this agreement and to hold us harmless and indemnify us from claims asserted by third parties.

6.4. By uploading content you grant us an exclusive right to use the content, which shall be unrestricted in terms of time and place and shall be free of charge for ourselves. This right includes the right to publish, edit, reproduce and circulate the content in electronic form on the Checkdent website. Also included is the right to distribute the content on data carriers in our own online database or in the online database of an affiliated company, and the right to lease the content transmitted in return for payment or free of charge (right of publication). This right to use the work shall exist regardless of the existence of your member account. You shall not be entitled to any further claims as a result of the use of the work. We shall be entitled to transfer the right to use the work granted by you in favour of Checkdent to third parties.
6.5 You are aware that ads will be placed in close proximity to your content (particularly in the case of videos) and expressly agree to this. You also permit us to generate reduced-size versions (thumbnails) of pictures and videos to improve the use of the website, particularly by means of a search function, and to include these on the Checkdent website.
