Please make sure to not use DBLSQD only in accordance with applicable laws. If we are notified of any legal violations, we reserve the right to terminate your account immediately. We also reserve the right to refuse the renewal of your subscription if you are using DBLSQD to share content classified as hate speech.
By using our services, you agree that all claims and disputes related to this contract and our services shall be settled according to the laws of the Federal Republic of Germany and exclusively at German courts.
You agree that we may automatically upgrade our Services, and these terms will apply to any upgrades. Your agreement is with Pentacent – Philipp Schmieder Medien ("Pentacent" or "we"). Please read this Agreement carefully before accessing or using our Services. By accessing or using any part of our Services, you agree to become bound by the terms and conditions of this agreement. If you do not agree to all the terms and conditions of this agreement, then you may not access or use any of our Services. If these terms and conditions are considered an offer by Pentacent, acceptance is expressly limited to these terms.

You will be solely responsible and liable for any activity that occurs under your user account.
If you use our Services, create content or upload files to DBLSQD, or otherwise make (or allow any third party to make) material available (any such material, "Content") through our Services, you are entirely responsible for the content of, and any harm resulting from, that Content or your conduct. That is the case regardless of what form the Content takes, which includes, but is not limited to text, photo, video, audio, software, or code.
