II. Entry and downloading of data
Every user is individually responsible for the content he/she has entered (routes and further information on routes). Such content may not offend against public decency or violate criminal legislation, copyright of images or text or the personal rights of other people. In case of violation, the user in question is obliged to compensate the Münster University of Applied Sciences for damage arising. In such cases, the user is to release the Münster University of Applied Sciences from all claims by third parties with regard to the illegality of his/her content.
The Münster University of Applied Sciences reserves the right at any time to shorten or entirely remove content without stating reasons. In the case of awareness of illegal content, we request to be informed without delay, and the corresponding content will then be removed immediately by the Münster University of Applied Sciences.

If the user enters data from third parties, the user affirms that he/she is entitled to enter these data and that the data are free from the rights of third parties.

If individual provisions of this contract should be or should become invalid, this shall not affect the legal validity of the remaining provisions.
You decide on your privacy
Naviki takes protection of the data and the privacy of registered users very seriously. As a Naviki user, you yourself decide whether to input personal data and make them visible to the public. Insofar as Naviki employs statistical assessments, these are always carried out anonymously and without inference from individual behaviour.
Transparent handling of your information
The Münster University of Applied Sciences, as the operator of Naviki, will collect, store and process, if required, the following information from Naviki users: User name (a pseudonym can be chosen), first name, surname, email address and - if these have been entered voluntarily into the system - further personal data if required.
Naviki will never pass on personal data to third parties.
On registering as a user with www.naviki.org, the participant agrees to the collection and storage and also if required the processing of the above listed data. If the user retracts this agreement, all the user's personal data will be deleted. This will also end the owner and user relationship.
