We would love to have just a gentle(wo)men’s agreement with you, where we say we’ll do our best to keep the Hotglue.me service running as good as possible and where you state that you will “behave” yourself within the digisphere of your Hotglue.me subdomain.

This document contains the terms applicable to users of Hotglue.me service (http://www.hotglue.me), which is managed by the WORM Foundation (PO Box 25045, 3001 HA, Rotterdam, Netherlands), hereinafter to be referred to as: WORM.
This document determines inter alia the following aspects of the relationship between users and the WORM Foundation:

• The operation of the service (Article 4)
• Conditions applicable to content placed on Hotglue.me (Article 5)
• Privacy (Article 6)
• Liability of the parties in the event of damage or loss (Article 7)
By creating an account on Hotglue.me, the user indicates acceptance of these conditions. Once a user account is created, the conditions can be accessed on www.hotglue.me/terms.
In these Conditions for Use, the following terms have an initial capital letter. These terms are defined as follows:
1.1 Account: personal section that is managed by the User and which is created when the User registers for the Service.
1.2 Visitor: a natural person or company who visits the Website and who reads the information and Content placed on the Website. If Users read the Content of other users, they also qualify as Visitors.

Article 2 - Applicability
2.1 These Conditions for Use apply to any and every use of the Service by the User. They do not apply to Visitors.
2.2 WORM is entitled at all times to amend or supplement these Conditions for Use. In such an event, a notification will be sent to the User by email. If the User continues using the Service after receiving the notification, he thereby irrevocably accepts such conditions. If the User does not agree to the amended or supplemented Conditions for Use, he must refrain from using the Service, and he must close his Account. The current Conditions for Use are available on the Website at all times.
3.1 Before Content can be placed on the Website, the User must create an Account in the manner described on the Website. During registration, the User must also enter a Username and a Password, which will provide access to the Account.
3.2 It is the responsibility of the User to keep the Username/Password combination confidential. The User is therefore responsible for all use that is made of the Service through the Username and the Password. WORM may assume that the User is in fact the person who is seeking access with the Username and the Password that belong to him. As soon as the User is aware or as soon as he may have reason to suspect that a Username and/or Password has become known to unauthorized persons, the User must notify WORM immediately. This does not affect his own obligation to take effective measures immediately, such as changing the Password.
3.3 If the User is younger than 12 years of age, he is only allowed to use the Service if he has the consent of his legal representative(s). By accepting these Conditions for Use, the User guarantees that he is in fact older than 12 years of age, or that he has obtained the consent of his legal representative(s) to create an Account and to use the Service.
3.4 WORM reserves the right to alter the login procedure, the Password and/or the Username, if it considers this necessary in any way, for instance if this is in the interests of the operation of the Service. In that event, the User will be notified of this by email using the email address entered upon registration.
4.1 The User accepts that the Service only contains the functionality and other features found by him when using the Service. The Service is, therefore, delivered "as is". WORM expressly excludes explicit and tacit guarantees, undertakings and warranties of any nature whatever, including but not limited to guarantees, promises and warranties with respect to the quality, safety, availability, lawfulness, integrity and correctness of the Service.
4.2 WORM does not guarantee that the Service will at all times be accessible without interruptions or failures. Failures in the Service may occur as a result of, amongst other things, failures in internet or telephone connections or because of viruses or faults/defects. WORM is in no way responsible or liable for compensating the User for any damage or loss arising from or as a result of the Service being unavailable or temporarily unavailable, or in case of a breakdown of the Service.
4.3 WORM is entitled, without any prior notice being required and without being liable to compensate the User, to close down or to temporarily close down the Website and/or the Service and/or to limit the use of it if it considers this necessary, for instance in connection with any reasonably necessary maintenance of the Website and/or the Service.
4.4 WORM is entitled, without any prior announcement being required, to make procedural and technical changes and/or improvements to the Website and/or the Service.

6.1 In connection with the Service the User will provide WORM with personal data as meant in the Dutch Personal Data Protection Act (Wet bescherming persoonsgegevens (“Wbp”)).

7.2 WORM assumes no liability for the substance of the Content, nor, therefore, for damage or loss to Users or other third parties that arises from any unlawful substance of the Content.
7.3 The User indemnifies WORM against all third-party claims on any grounds whatever that relate to the compensation of damage, loss, costs or interest, in connection with or arising from his use of the Service and/or any breach of these Conditions for Use and/or any other rights of third parties.
7.4 This restriction of liability does not, however, intend to exclude WORM’s liability for intent and/or willful recklessness by WORM (“own actions”) itself and/or its executive managers.

9.2 Where national or international rules of law do not contain mandatory provisions to the contrary, all disputes between the User and WORM will, at the discretion of the party serving a summons or the party making an application, be brought before the competent court in the district of his place of residence or place of business, or before another court that is competent pursuant to national or international rules of law.
9.3 Should any provision of these Conditions for Use be or become invalid, the User and WORM will remain bound to the remaining provisions.
