III. Registration and conclusion of the contract
Dragonfolio China offers high-quality journalistic content from the areas of business, finance, economics, culture, and stock exchange in digital form on its Dragonfolio China websites. Parts of the content are generally freely accessible to everyone. For certain material, registration, and for other content in the premium area, payment by the customer is required. Registration is free of charge but requires a functional email address. There is no legal claim to access to the content.
To gain access to the premium area, which is subject to a fee, the customer must also have a premium membership. Premium membership requires electronic registration, which must be done using the registration form available on the Dragonfolio China websites. The data required for registration must be provided completely and truthfully by the customer.
By submitting the premium membership form, the customer submits a legally binding offer. The customer specifies a user name and a password when registering as when logging in. The access authorization only applies to the customer personally; it is not transferable. The customer is responsible for the confidentiality of the user name and password. The customer is entitled to have access blocked if he becomes aware of possible misuse of the services.
IV. Use and obligations of the customer
All contents of this website are protected by copyright law and other protective laws. The customer may only use the contents of the Dragonfolio China websites for personal needs, for their own, non-commercial purposes. This also applies expressly to parts of the content, such as individual articles, photos, or comments.

The customer is also prohibited from reproducing, editing, redesigning, publishing, distributing, selling, selling, passing on the content of the Dragonfolio China websites beyond what is stipulated, in any way whatsoever - economically exploitable.
The customer is further prohibited from circumventing the intended access control services by using technical means or otherwise overriding them. In particular, the customer will not misuse his access options, in particular not in contradiction to these terms and conditions, and will respect the laws and the rights of third parties.
Dragonfolio China reserves the right to investigate these processes if there is suspicion of improper use or significant breaches of contract, take appropriate precautions and, if there is reasonable suspicion, block the customer's access to the content - or at least until the customer has cleared a doubt - and if necessary, to terminate the contractual relationship without notice in the event of, particularly serious violations.
If the customer clears the suspicion, the block will be lifted. The customer must compensate Dragonfolio China for the damage resulting from its breaches of duty. The liability of the customer is limited to those cases for which he is responsible.

This is typically done, but not limited to, through a comment on articles, a contribution in the forums, or a guest contribution from the customer.
The customer is prohibited from posting or uploading content that is not permitted by law or otherwise prohibited or discriminatory content. The customer is obliged to observe the usage rules of the forum as well as the rights of third parties.

The website may contain hyperlinks to websites operated by parties other than Dragonfolio China. Such hyperlinks are provided for reference and convenience only. Dragonfolio China does not control such websites and is not responsible for their content. Just because Dragonfolio China has hyperlinks to such web sites does not mean Dragonfolio China endorses any of the material on such websites or has any association with their operators.
IX. Intellectual Property Rights
All text, graphics, editorial content, data, formatting, graphs, HTML, look and feel, photographs, music, sounds, images, software, videos, designs, typefaces, and other content that users see or read on this website or publicly display in any format at any venue including, but not limited to, any public presentations and/or lectures is owned by Dragonfolio China or is used with permission.

Any use of such proprietary material, other than as permitted herein, is expressly prohibited without the prior permission of Dragonfolio China and/or the relevant right holder.
X. Late payment
As soon as and as long as a customer is in default of payment, Dragonfolio China is entitled to block access to the content. If the customer does not make a timely payment, Dragonfolio China will warn the customer by setting a deadline. If the customer ignores these reminders, Dragonfolio China is free to take further appropriate legal action. In addition to the outstanding subscription fees, the customer has to bear all costs of legal proceedings (including reminder costs, costs for a collection agency, etc.). Dragonfolio China expressly reserves the right to assert further claims.
Ordinary termination from the customer is excluded in the event of an agreed minimum subscription period. The minimum subscription period for paid content depends on the contract concluded (normally one year).
Unless otherwise agreed, subscriptions are automatically extended for the term of the contract, but for a maximum of one year, unless they are canceled at least one month before the end of the contract.
Dragonfolio.net is entitled to change the scope, type, and content of the services offered at any time without notice, provided that the customer is not thereby made worse by the bindingly promised services.
Dragonfolio.net is also entitled at any time to discontinue the operation of the dragonfolio.net website, to transfer it in whole or in part to third parties, to reduce or adapt legally binding benefits or to terminate the contractual relationship with the customer prematurely. In this case, remuneration paid in advance by the customer will be reimbursed pro-rata to the extent that it relates to services that have not yet been received.
The extraordinary termination is free to both parties if the legal requirements are met. Terminations must always be made in writing. When the termination takes effect, the right to use the affected content expires.
XII. Right of withdrawal and consequences
If you are a private consumer, you have the right to cancel a contract within 14 days without giving a reason. The cancellation period is fourteen days from the day the contract is concluded.
In order to exercise your right of cancellation, you must inform me of your decision to cancel this contract through a clear statement (e.g., by email). To meet the cancellation deadline, it is sufficient for you to send your communication regarding your exercise of the right of cancellation before the cancellation period expires.
If you cancel a contract, I will refund all payments I have received from you, including delivery costs, immediately and at the latest within fourteen days from the day on which I received notification of your cancellation of this contract. For this repayment, I use the same means of payment that you used in the original transaction unless expressly agreed otherwise with you; Under no circumstances will you be charged any fees for this repayment on our part.
Since you have immediate access to all digital content with the activation and a return of our services is therefore impossible, I can only activate this after the above withdrawal period has expired.
If you want to avoid this waiting time, you can explicitly instruct me to execute the contract immediately. In this case, your right of cancellation expires, and I will promptly activate your digital content.

For the rest, liability – regardless of the legal reason – is excluded both towards dragonfolio.net and towards its employees, organs, and agents.
In particular, dragonfolio.net is not liable for legal violations in transmitted, stored, or linked third-party content insofar as dragonfolio.net did not know about these legal violations. As soon as dragonfolio.net becomes aware of such violations, this content will be removed immediately.
