    4. Registration, password

    A number of pages of the Krone website can be protected by passwords. In the interest of maintaining the security of our business connections, access to these pages is only possible for registered users. There is no entitlement to a registration through Krones. Krones retains the right, in particular to make registration compulsory even for those pages which till now were freely accessible. Krones is entitled at any time to revoke access entitlement by blocking the login data without needing to give reason, in particular if the user

    • made false statements when registering,
    • acted in breach of the conditions or did not exercise due diligence in the handling of the login data,
    • acted in breach of applicable law when accessing or using the Krones Website, or
    • has not made any contact with the Krones Website for a longer period of time.

    In cases where registration is prescribed, the user is under obligation to make truthful statements when registering and to advise Krones without delay (as far as provided: online) of any possible later changes. The user is to see to it that the emails are received that are sent to the indicated email address.

    After registration has been successfully completed, the user will receive a user name and password (in the following also referred to as "user data").

    The user must make sure that the user data are not accessible to third parties. The user is also liable for any orders or other activities which are carried out under said user data. The user should leave the password protected area after each use. As soon as the user receives knowledge that a third party has misused/is misusing the user data, the user is under obligation to advise Krones without delay in writing of such misuse and, as the case may be, ex ante directly via email.

    After receiving such a notification, Krones will block access to the password protected area containing this user data. Only after the user has made a separate petition to Krones or re-registered, is it possible to revoke the block.

    The user can at any time demand in writing the deletion of his/her registration, in as far as such a deletion does not compromise the processing of any current contractual relationship. In such a case, Krone will delete the user data and all other stored private data of the user as soon as such data is no longer required.

    5. References and hyper links

    The Krones Website can contain hyper links to the websites of third parties. Krones declines to take responsibility for the content of these websites, nor does Krones adopt these websites or their content as its own since Krones does not control the linked information and is not responsible for the content and information provided thereof. It is at one's own risk that the user employs such links.
