Only persons legally capable to enter into agreements on their own behalf shall be permitted to register with WMRC. Minors may only register with WMRC subject to the explicit consent of their parents or legal guardians. A written consent shall be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Each user shall register with WMRC only once and confirms with its registration that it has not registered with WMRC before and has not deleted a previously activated user account.
In principle, different ways of registration exist:
Registration by use of the registration form.
Adoption of registration details from the social network Facebook and via Facebook.
The registration with WMRC begins with a registration form. The user shall provide the details requested on such forms (e.g., first name, last name, date of birth) completely and correctly, unless such details are marked as voluntary. The registration is only possible by use of the civil name (hence no phantasy names or pseudonyms).
Registration via Facebook requires the confirmation that the selected details, which the user has already confirmed on Facebook, shall be adopted by the WMRC network. The user can subsequently add to or reduce such details in its own profile.
Following successful registration, the user can log in to WMRC by either (i) entering its user name or email address as well as the chosen password or (ii) causing the log-in via Facebook.
If the registration has not been completed (e.g., as a result of missing personal details or the lack of consent to these General Terms and Conditions), we will delete the (partially) activated user account within a period of seven days.
We reserve the right to reject users without giving reasons. In this event, any transmitted details will be deleted promptly.
C.S.M is not responsible for the actual identity of the user, since personal identification via the internet is possible only to a limited extent. Each user shall itself confirm the identity of other users prior to entering into any form of interaction with such users (e.g., adding as a friend, writing messages). In this connection, the user shall observe the recommendations regarding the sharing of personal details.
