In addition, the cang App is entitled to suspend, block, terminate and delete your member account, your posted content and any other use of the services by you in any case, if the cang App must reasonably assume that you violate these Terms of Use or do not comply with essential basic ideas of the Terms of Use.

5. General obligations of the user

5.1 The cang app is based on the idea of participation in opinion-forming processes, common challenges, provision of informative content, for example, on the topics of sustainable lifestyle, sustainable cosmetics, nutrition, etc. This presupposes that the opinions expressed by you, e.g. within the framework of questions or answers, are your actual opinions or justifications. This presupposes that the opinions you express, e.g. in the context of questions or answers, are your actual opinions and that the reasons given are actually correct. You recognise this as a basic principle, as you would expect from other members of the cang app.

If you participate in challenges and mark tasks as completed, you have actually completed them. Abuse or dishonesty can lead to immediate exclusion from the cang community.

5.2 You must ensure that your member account is only used by yourself and you must keep your password secret for this purpose. You are responsible for ensuring that third parties do not obtain knowledge of your password. You must inform us immediately of any misuse of your password or membership account, as well as of any other breach of security in this context. Your liability for any misuse of your member account caused by you remains unaffected.

5.4 You undertake to refrain from actions that impair or may impair the integrity or functionality of the services provided by the cang app or the servers and networks connected to them (e.g. through software or scripts). This applies in particular to the use of robots, spiders, scrapers or similar technologies for the automated retrieval of content or data. It is also prohibited to modify areas of the website not made available to you by the cang app for this purpose, including areas of other users, or to disseminate information, data and evaluations contained therein. You undertake not to access the offers/services in any other way than via the user interface provided by the cang app.

The opinions of users do not necessarily reflect the opinion of youtiful GmbH or its bodies. In this respect, we do not assume any responsibility for the content, correctness and form of the posted contributions.
