The Keeping Nature Beautiful Blog Rules
We welcome you to the Keeping Nature Beautiful Blog of ADA Cosmetics International GmbH. The blog is supposed to be a venue for knowledgeable and well-founded discussion, but also emotional discussion as well. We look forward to jointly exchanging ideas with you and developing new ideas in the blog.
This is supposed to also be a pleasant atmosphere for all participants which is characterized by fairness, friendliness, tolerance and respect.
The following rules shall be valid for all users of the blog:
- Preliminary Comments
The Keeping Nature Beautiful Blog deals with themes relating to “green” aspects in the hotel industry. Themes are addressed which are related to energy savings, climate protection, sustainable management, green products and similar developments, knowledge and tendencies.
We look forward to open and objective discussions with you.
- Participation in the Blog — Contributions
In our blog, participants can formulate comments to blog articles and write their own articles. If you would like to insert your own article in the blog, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
The requirement for participation in the blog is the successful registration of the user while providing his name and/or a nickname and an e-mail address (no free e-mail address) and a successfully implemented opt-in mail procedure.
Each participant is responsible for the articles and/or comments he writes (hereafter collectively referred to as: “Contributions”).
After writing a Contribution, the participant hereby approves its release by sending it to the blog for publication.
- Contribution-Related Etiquette
In our blog, real persons communicate about central themes that are very important to us. Before this backdrop, we wish to have fair interaction, a friendly tone, tolerance and respect for differing opinions. Thus, the following basic rules must be adhered to by all participants when drafting articles and comments:
- Each personal opinion is very important to us. However, you should provide substantiation by means of objective and constructive arguments.
- Make it clear if you are putting forth hypotheses. Allegations or conjecture should be avoided.
- Caution should be maintained when using irony and humor. On the Internet, things are often taken seriously which were meant to be humorous.
- In order for real facial expressions and gestures to be correctly perceived, it is recommended that you use smileys (emoticons).
- Comments should always refer to the theme of the relevant blog article or the discussion.
- In the interest of all readers of the blog, excessive use of off-topic content should be avoided.
- Content of a commercial and/or a promotional character as well as the placement of links for commercial purposes are likewise not permitted.
- The private sphere must absolutely be respected. Thus, we request that all participants refrain from providing confidential details such as, for example, contact addresses in their Contributions.
- Insults are not permitted.
- Illegal and unethical Contributions whose content includes pornographic, racist, violence-inducing or other unacceptable content or which discriminates against other people e.g. due to their gender, age, language, national/ethnic origin, religion, sexual orientation or belief system as well as links to corresponding content may not be inserted in the blog
- Publishing and Deletion of Contributions
Any Contribution which has been written and approved for release by the participant shall be published under his name and/or the nickname which he himself has selected. Once a Contribution has been published, it may not be amended or deleted by the participant. If you wish to have a Contribution deleted, please write a short e-mail and send it to email@example.com .
No Legal Right to Publication, Right of Deletion
No participant shall have a right to have the Contribution, which he has written and approved for release, published in the blog.
The owner of the blog shall have the right to remove any Contribution from the blog at any time.
In the event of substantial violations of Contribution-related etiquette — if, for example, a participant discriminates against other people due to their gender, their age, their language, their national/ethnic origin, their religion, their sexual orientation or their belief system, — the owner may also cancel the respective participant’s registration and block his future participation in the blog.
