A. General Terms and Conditions for the use of avameet.

1. General provisions about these General Terms and Conditions:

1.1 The use of all web pages, software, media and Internet services which are operated by avameet and which are accessible over the various Internet domains or further programs and portals is regulated in the following General Terms and Conditions.

These General Terms and Conditions regulate the relationship between the company operating the avameet platforms and the registered Users which use these platforms. Similarly, they apply for all aspects of the Users within the platforms among each other.

avameet may be used exclusively over a computer or any other technical device with which Internet access is possible.

However, no aspects are regulated in these General Terms and Conditions which are connected with these devices or the software required to access avameet (Internet browsers, operating systems), in that avameet does not provide these services.

1.2 avameet reserves the right to make available certain services and applications only for certain User groups and Users.

For further applications and services, additional conditions may be required, which, however, it will be possible to clearly and explicitly note in advance.

2. About the platform, User groups, provision of services and offers.

2.1 avameet offers a platform on the Internet over which Users of virtual worlds, 3D on-line games and Web3D applications may come into contact with other Users.

Users may find these via various services and applications integrated in avameet, but also with the help of search functions based on suitable skills, interests and requests.

2.2  Additionally, besides applications of communication and presentation of content and media, avameet offers an integrated trade platform (hereinafter, "Marketplace") with various offer formats for virtual (digital) goods, virtual currencies and services.

The User's participation in this trade platform is possible without additional registration.


2.2.1 Via the Marketplace Users are able to publicize offers and requests.

These may be publicized by the User with information, media, price statements, special notes regarding usage and links to follow. Other Users may access and acquire these offers.

In this connection avameet offers technical solutions for presentation, delivery and marketing of these digital goods and services.

avameet also offers the technical prerequisites to categorize offers or to make them available in sorted form with further search filters.


2.2.2 avameet does not offer goods and services for a fee on its own account over the Marketplace. Contracts which are formed over the avameet Marketplace will  be exclusively concluded between Users. This may take place either directly with a purchase or download on avameet, or via further electronic communication paths in the Internet (for example, in the respective virtual world/ or online game).

Payments shall be made according to the payment terms and instructions of the offeror.

avameet is also not responsible for the processing and fulfillment of these contracts, and is not liable in this regard.


2.2.3 Price quotations in the avameet Marketplace are generally stated in the form of virtual currencies from the respective virtual worlds. The daily conversion rates in currencies such as EUR, US$, Yen, etc. may be found in the respective exchange information of the operators of these virtual currencies. Acquisition of these virtual currencies directly from avameet does not take place.


2.2.4 If the delivery of virtual/ digital goods takes place directly over avameet, the offeror shall be informed of the User name of the purchaser and may subsequently access the transaction history in his account.

A claim for disclosure of further purchaser data on the part of the seller principally  does not exist.


2.2.5 If a credit balance must be deposited on avameet in the form of virtual currencies for the conclusion of a contract, this shall occur via a third party service provider. These may be service providers for payment services or operators of virtual worlds.

In this case the General Terms and Conditions of the respective operator apply.

The technical interface of the avameet Marketplace only inquires with these services as to whether sufficient credit for a direct purchase is available. This may also mean in individual cases that a credit balance must be paid into an account in a virtual world for acquiring something in the avameet Marketplace.

Earnings which an offeror generates in such a case over the avameet Marketplace may be paid out at any time over this account.

A currency transaction as defined by the banking industry shall not at any time be conducted by avameet.


2.2.6 Users may place want ads in the avameet Marketplace for services or products.

Other Users may make offers for these want ads directly to this User and contact him for promotional offers.


2.2.7 The User who publicizes an offer hereby warrants by the acceptance of these General Terms and Conditions that he has all of the rights of exploitation, copyright, trademark rights and rights of use for the respective virtual/ digital good or service.

In addition, he warrants that he will continually maintain information which will enable the purchaser to make contact with the seller.


2.2.8 All offers and advertisements remain permanently disseminated, may however be deactivated by the offeror at any time.


2.2.9 In the event of problems, complaints and breaches of contract between the purchasers and the offerors due to a contract or offer received and mediated via avameet, both sides are obligated to seek mutual agreement before legal steps are initiated in which avameet could become involved.

avameet may in such a case nevertheless be contacted and if appropriate, step in as an intermediary.

A right to this, however, does not exist. avameet will however always make efforts to prevent or avert negative incidents and developments in the Marketplace.


2.3 For all aspects and contents of the platforms, avameet only offers the technical possibilities, the access and the software for the availability. The communication and the trade shall occur amongst the Users.


2.4 avameet Users are not obligated to communicate and act under their real names on the platforms. Apart from reasons of the philosophy and the goal of these platforms, the disclosure of personal information also does not offer any legal guarantee for other Users and for us as the operator - inasmuch as this does not occur via a recognized and explicit authentication system, which we are not legally obligated to implement for the purpose of operating this service.


2.5 avameet wishes to continually further develop and expand these platforms. Adaptation and updating is not always required for these changes and further developments. For informing the User, for example, a notice at the time of the next log in may occur.

avameet reserves the right to temporarily block or limit the use of individual offers and services. This may be the case if capacity limitations are reached, maintenance work is carried out on the servers or security-relevant modifications must be undertaken.


2.6 On avameet it is possible for Users to post commentaries and evaluations on contents but also on offers of other Users. avameet does not of its own accord monitor the truthfulness of these evaluations and commentaries. With your consent to these General Terms and Conditions you hereby obligate yourself in such cases to exclusively make truthful and applicable statements.


2.7 Details about the offers and services of avameet are listed in avameet Guide.



3. Costs


3.1 All of the offers and services operated by avameet may be used without incurring costs. Costs incurred by the User to access avameet services (access over the Internet and mobile services, etc.) are excluded from the provisions of these General Terms and Conditions and avameet is not the contracting partner for this.



4. Registration


4.1 To register yourself on avameet, you must be at least 16 years of age. Participation by younger Users is currently prohibited. To be allowed to conclude business transactions over avameet, you must be legally competent or have consent to conclude business transactions.

When you register, you may not use the identities of others (no matter if these are real or pseudonyms, etc.), trade names and the names of artists to which you do not have any rights, or racist, discriminatory or pornographic designations.

In avameet routine monitoring of accounts is set up which filters out such terms and which automatically blocks or deletes the corresponding accounts.


4.2 At registration, a name (however only for internal use by avameet), a User name, a valid e-mail address and a password must be provided. The User name is the only required information which is publicly accessible after registration is completed. You may later define in your privacy settings how and to what extent your profile should be publicly retrievable.

All further information is voluntary, but should be voluntarily supplemented for more effective use of the avameet platform for you and other Users.


4.3 Subsequent to registration, you will receive an e-mail at the e-mail address specified at registration. The registration must be confirmed over a link included in the e-mail to successfully complete the registration.

With the User name and password chosen by you, you may then log into avameet.


4.4 Users of the platform www.slinside.com(.de) are automatically registered in the User database of avameet and may log in to avameet with the SLinside User name and password.

Only after a first log in and the acknowledgment of these General Terms and Conditions is a user contract formed.


4.5 In addition avameet allows Users of external services (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, OpenID, Linkedin and many more) to register by clicking on avameet with the ID which is valid on those sites.


4.6 The contract for the use of avameet is only concluded subsequent to one of the registration typesunder items 4.2, 4.3, 4.4 and 4.5.

The user contract is concluded for an indefinite duration, insofar as no other terms are defined in individual avameet services.

If a registration process is incompletely carried out, the information from this process will be removed from our database shortly thereafter.

Please note that there is no right to the conclusion of a contract of use.

avameet may reject a registration without providing the reasons. In such case, all of the User's information will be immediately deleted.


4.7 The creation of several accounts on avameet is permitted insofar as no misuse of avameet services is undertaken (e.g. manipulation of evaluations for offers), or deception of other avameet Users (e.g. manipulation of forum topics).


4.8 The User is obligated to maintain the confidentiality of his password and not to communicate the password to third parties.

avameet employees and officials will never ask you for your password. Therefore every request for your User information which is disguised as a request on the part of avameet is absolutely to be ignored and reported to avameet.

Should you suspect or know that your avameet access information has become accessible to third parties or that your avameet account has been misused, you are obligated to inform us of this immediately.

This serves to protect you but also other avameet Users.

As a User, you are basically liable for all activities which are connected to your User account. Should this occur due to a misuse as previously mentioned and you are able to demonstrate that you have not violated your duty of care, then liability is of course excluded.



5. Grant of copyright rights of exploitation.


5.1 Recommending and exchanging the content of other Users on the Internet ranks among the most important and common methods / processes in the social web.

This takes place over buttons which are shown with "share", "bookmark" or special icons/ graphics of social web services and are integrated throughout avameet.

You hereby grant to avameet and also all other Users the rights unlimited in time and scope to your public content which you publish on avameet, to recommend, store and publish these contents on avameet itself and over external web services (e.g. RSS feeds, feed aggregators).

avameet will also publicize your public content in search engines, virtual worlds and other web services via automation and use the content for its own marketing.

In addition, information which you publish on avameet may also be used by other Users for their own commercial interests.

This of course applies only for content which you have set via your privacy settings to the status of "public".

All other content is also not publicly accessible, or only for the User groups on avameet selected by you.


5.2 Should there nevertheless be an instance of content becoming public which was not intended for the general public, the respective User which disseminated this content is thus the point of contact for clarification and not avameet.


5.3 In addition, you hereby grant your permission to avameet to categorize and process content in the event that presentations lead to technical problems and disadvantages in usage for other avameet Members.

For example, this can be the case for clearly inapplicable descriptions and titles of offers or for the inclusion of external media in a forum post which involve a long time to upload.


5.4 avameet shall not use your content to sell to third parties and also not pass on your personal information to for example, transmit to advertising partners.



6. Permissibility of content


6.1 Deemed to be "Content" are all texts, photos, videos, Marketplace offers & -requests, scripts / codes, links to follow to external web pages, User, event and group names.

For the trouble-free, safe and for all Users pleasant operation of the avameet platforms, the following principles are to be observed in publishing or disseminating Content in and over avameet:


- No Content for which you do not have the legal copyrights or trademark rights of use,

- No Content likely to corrupt the young and pornographic Content (in accordance with the German Juvenile Protection Act (Jugendschutzgesetz): http://bundesrecht.juris.de/juschg/)

- No Content relevant to criminal law (e.g. racist comments or inciting others to commit crimes),

- No discriminatory, insulting or defamatory Content,

- No violation of the data protection rights of others

- No extreme depictions of violence (e.g. photos / videos of accidents, torture scenes, theaters of war and its effects / consequences of physical violence),

- No disclosure and exchange of passwords as well as serial numbers of every kind,

- No instruction for hacking and illegal activities on the Internet,

- No Content and files which lead to damage and unauthorized access to the computers of others (e.g. viruses, trojans or links to same); and

- You shall not publish or advertise offers with hidden price information;

- No fraudulent and illegal network marketing and business models;

- No offers which do not have a reference to or do not have a connection to the topic of virtual worlds in the Internet, Web3D applications or on-line games;

- You shall not undertake attempts to obtain the registration information from User accounts of other avameet Users or attempt to access other avameet accounts; and

- You shall not undertake any acts or attempt to undertake any acts which impair avameet's operations or purposely overload avameet.


Moreover, community guidelines apply for the communication and interaction on avameet to which every User must adhere.



7. Consequences for violations of the conditions of use.


7.1 These General Terms and Conditions are obligatory for the User if he wants to participate in avameet and are essential for the functioning of these platforms.

avameet shall therefore, for violations of these General Terms and Conditions, in particular of the regulations in paragraph 6.1, impose sanctions against a User.

These will however only be imposed in the event that avameet determines that the violations were undertaken intentionally, repeatedly or purposefully to damage the platforms, avameet and its Users.


7.2 avameet reserves the right to remove without notice Content which is to be evaluated according to the prohibited Content set out in paragraph 6.1.

This may occur, for example, if a third party notifies avameet about questionable Content or violations.


7.3 avameet shall impose sanctions in the following order against a User, should intentional violations of these General Terms and Conditions occur:


a. admonishment of the User

b. warning the User

c. temporarily blocking the User's account over 4 weeks including blocking his Marketplace offers & requests

d. permanently blocking the User's account including the deletion of his Content and information (forum posts remain available).


7.4 avameet shall communicate an explanation about the type of violation for every sanction/ measure.


7.5 A permanent block and deletion of the User account shall be deemed to be an extraordinary termination of the contract of use in that a continuation of the contractual relationship for avameet is unreasonable.

In the event that such a case occurs, the User is also prohibited from using avameet under other registration information.

This is of course also prohibited in the event that a temporary block of the account is imposed.



8. Responsibility for User Content and limitations on liability.


8.1 The Users are entirely responsible for the Content which the Users publish on avameet. The User is obligated to assess whether these Contents are in accordance with law, do not violate the rights of third parties or do not violate applicable statutes.

avameet is not liable for these Contents on its own account.  These Contents also do not represent an opinion from or consultation by avameet.

avameet does not appropriate these Contents. In particular avameet does not guarantee that these Contents, data and information are true, fulfill a purpose or serve a particular purpose.


8.2 avameet does not evaluate and monitor User Content prior to publication and this is not obligatory according to statutory provisions.

Should Users or readers of avameet notice Contents which contain questionable Contents according to paragraph 6.1 or which violate their rights, this may be reported at any time.

For this purpose there are functions within avameet for directly reporting violations or a contact form which is accessible from every page.

Reported Contents shall be immediately evaluated and deactivated or deleted by avameet.


8.3 avameet is only responsible towards third parties for User Content if avameet demonstrably knew thereof, demonstrably acted with gross negligence or if a substantive contractual obligation/ material obligation was violated.

For this claim, however, it must have been technically possible and reasonable for avameet to prevent the incident.


8.4 The User shall indemnify avameet for all claims of third parties which such parties are able to assert towards avameet due to violations of their rights by Content which the User published on avameet.

The User is hereby obligated vis à vis avameet for demands asserted by third parties to immediately, truthfully and completely communicate all information and data available to the User which are necessary to evaluate the claims and for the defense.

Should the claims of the third parties be founded, the User is obligated to compensate for the damages.

This also applies to the costs of litigation as well as court costs and attorney fees up to the amount allowed pursuant to statute.

Claims for damages on the part of avameet vis à vis the User which exceed this are hereby unaffected.

In addition the regulations and obligations named herein do not apply if the User demonstrably did not commit the relevant violation of rights (such as by account misuse which he did not negligently commit).


8.5 avameet is unable to determine with technical means whether the User is actually providing truthful information about himself or is the person who he claims to be.

Therefore avameet is not able and shall not provide any guarantee concerning the true identity of a User.

The Users shall among themselves convince each other of the actual identity of other Users, in case this should be required.


8.6. avameet expressly distances itself from the contents of all web pages which are linked from avameet and does not assume any liability therefor. The respective providers of these web pages are themselves responsible for the contents.


8.7 Should the delivery of virtual/ digital goods not occur over servers directly operated by avameet (for example, for direct connection of the avameet Marketplace to a virtual world operated by a third party provider), no guarantee is undertaken for complete or correct delivery, in that avameet does not have any influence over these service providers.

This limitation of liability does not apply to technical problems on the part of avameet web pages and scripts.


8.8 Rights of use and licensing terms of offers are to be taken from the descriptions and instructions of the respective provider. avameet does not assume any responsibility for compliance by the Users therewith or for their legal validity.


8.9 The herein named limitations on liability and claims for indemnity also apply to all companies, employees, representatives and shareholders connected with avameet.



9. Guarantees and liability.


9.1 avameet is only liable for damages which are based on an intentional or grossly negligent violation of contract as well as for damages which occur due to contract violations due to ordinary negligence. For a claim for compensation of damages vis à vis avameet, the amount is limited to damages which are foreseeable or typical for the contract.

Liability on the part of avameet for damages to health, life and limb as well as under the Product Liability Act are unaffected hereby.


9.2 For the loss of recorded data and information, avameet is only liable for damages which would have occurred with regular data backup.


9.3 Even though avameet makes every effort to maintain the availability and stability of the avameet web pages and services, 100% availability cannot be guaranteed.

Capacity problems, expansion of the platforms, updating software and hardware, interruptions in communication networks, loss of power and many others, may be reasons for loss of service and inaccessibility.


9.4 avameet does not offer any guarantees which could be defined and interpreted as guarantees in the legal sense. Should such a guarantee be made in the individual case, then only in writing and such guarantees are excluded from all limitations on liability.



10. Termination


10.1 The cancellation of an avameet User account may be carried out by the User himself without providing the reasons and without complying with notice periods.

For this the User must simply choose the function "Delete Account" in his profile settings.

A cancellation may also be effectuated via e-mail. For this the User must send a simple written termination notice from the e-mail address with which the User is registered on avameet to account@avameet.com .


10.2 Subsequent to termination of the User account, all personal information of the User will be deleted. In addition, all Content such as profile information, commentaries, photos, videos, blogs and Marketplace content will be deleted. Some Content, such as for example forum posts, will continue to exist with the notation that the User has in the meantime been deleted.



11. Reservation of the right to make modifications.


11.1 avameet reserves the right to modify at any time provisions of these General Terms and Conditions without providing the reasons and observing the following regulations and requirements.

For modifications, expansion of functionality and services in avameet, avameet will only note the change no later than 4 weeks prior to its becoming effective via e-mail, at the next log in of the User or via the blog, even if these changes possibly make modifications of these General Terms and Conditions necessary.

If the User does not object to the modifications of the new General Terms and Conditions within 4 weeks, the modified provisions shall be deemed to be accepted.

avameet will always clearly note the importance of this time-limit.


11.2 For modifications of the provisions as to performance, services and costs according to Section 2 of these General Terms and Conditions, the provision in item 11.1 is excluded.

This howeveronly affects modifications for which it is not reasonable for the User to continue to use avameet as usual (if, for example, costs are incurred).


11.3 For modifications of these General Terms and Conditions which require a renewed consent to allow the contractual relationship to continue to be carried on, the notification shall occur no later than 4 weeks prior to the modifications becoming effective per e-mail or at the next log in of the User onto avameet.

Users may object to these modifications within 4 weeks of their announcement. If continued use of avameet occurs subsequent to the objection, the objection is ineffective.

If the modifications are not consented to by the User, the contractual relationship is deemed to be terminated.



12. Closing provisions, venue and applicable law.


12.1 Unless otherwise agreed, the User may deliver all declarations to avameet per e-mail or over the corresponding contact forms on avameet. avameet shall transmit declarations towards the User to the e-mail address provided by the User.


12.2 Should individual provisions of these General Terms and Conditions be invalid or modified, the validity of the remaining provisions shall remain unaffected thereby.


12.3 The place of performance is Berlin / Germany.


12.4 The venue for merchants within the meaning of the German Commercial Code (Handelsgesetzbuch, "HGB") is Berlin / Germany.


12.5 German law applies excluding private international law and the UN Convention on the International Sale of Goods as taken over by German law.

Community Guidelines

B. Community Richtlinien

Für den Spaß, Erfolg der jeweiligen Nutzeraktivitäten und den Mehrwert einer sozialen Community wie avameet sind vor allem Respekt, Toleranz und Ehrlichkeit wichtig.
Die nachfolgenden Community Richtlinien gelten für alle Dienste und Bereiche von avameet.
Um avameet zu nutzen musst Du diesen Richtlinien zustimmen.

1. Seid nett zueinander

Hinter jedem Nutzer einer Web-Plattform, egal ob reale oder virtuelle Identität, sitzt ein echter Mensch mit echten Gefühlen, Bedürfnissen, Erfahrungen und Wünschen. Dies sollte in der Kommunikation untereinander immer beachtet werden.
Hab Geduld mit neuen Nutzern. Erwarte nicht die gleichen Denk- und Handlungsweisen von anderen wie Du sie hast.
Beleidigungen und Intoleranz werden seitens des avameet Community-Supports umgehend und entschlossen geahndet.
Dass Belästigungen, Beleidigungen und Trolling verboten sind, ist sicherlich eine Selbstverständlichkeit.

2. Inhalte veröffentlichen auf avameet

2.1 Arten der Inhalte dieser Plattform und richtige Bereiche auswählen

avameet ist deine zentrale Plattform für alle Aktivitäten, Projekte, Geschäfte und Hobbies in und um Virtuelle Welten, MMOG's und das Web3D.
Von daher möchten wir Dich bitten bevorzugt Inhalte dieser Themen auf avameet zu veröffentlichen.
Bereiche wie Events, Videos, Marktplatz, Gruppen, Wiki oder Blogs sind ganz klar nur für Inhalte dieser oben genannten Themenbereiche ausgelegt. Sämtliche Offtopic Themen werden hier seitens des avameet Community-Supports ohne Angabe von Gründe gelöscht.
Wir sind uns aber sicher dass man auch ganz alltägliche Dinge sehr kreativ und originell in der virtuellen Welt thematisieren kann und dann ist es wiederum sehr Willkommen diese Inhalte auf avameet zu veröffentlichen.
Natürlich verbietet Euch niemand in Eurem Profil über Dinge die außerhalb von virtuellen Welten geschehen zu kommunizieren. Auch in den avameet Foren gibt es speziell dafür ausgewiesene Bereiche.

2.1 Treffende Überschriften und Titel
Wenn die Überschrift das Anliegens aussagekräftig ist, ist eine passende Reaktion wahrscheinlicher. Außerdem finden später Besucher mit dem gleichen Anliegen das Thema schneller. Bitte achte bei der Überschrift auf eine verständliche Rechtschreibung und Grammatik. Nur Großschrift stört die Übersichtlichkeit und wird üblicherweise als Schreien interpretiert.  Auch Sonderzeichen machen das Lesen und Finden schwierig und Inhalte wirken dadurch eher unseriös.

2.2 Feedback geben
Feedback und Meinungen sind sehr wichtig in Plattformen wie avameet.
Frage ruhig jederzeit wenn etwas nicht klar ist. Ein "Danke hat geholfen" freut Deinen Helfer und signalisiert später den Lesern, dass die Antwort gut war.
Und wenn du selbst eine Lösung gefunden hast, darfst Du andere Nutzer auch daran teilhaben lassen.
Wenn Du etwas gut findest, empfehle es ruhig anderen weiter. Dies kannst Du direkt in avameet machen, oder auch per Klick über weitere Social Web Services wie Facebook, Twitter, Google, Plurk, MySpace, MSN, AOL, uvm. .

3. Werbung in avameet

In avameet hast Du viele Möglichkeiten Werbung für Deine Produkte, Deine Projekte, oder Deine Dienstleistungen zu machen. Dies kannst Du ganz normal im Marktplatz machen, aber auch über soziale Web-Tools wie Blogs, Gruppen, oder das Forum.
Versuche aber Werbung nicht wie Werbespam wirken zu lassen. Das ist nicht nur nervig für anderen Nutzer, sondern auch unwahrscheinlich uneffektiv. Versuche lieber Fans und Anhänger Deiner Marke / Deiner Projekte zu mobilisieren und diese zu idealen Werbebotschafter zu machen, indem Sie z.B. zu Deinen Angeboten und Projekten Feedback, bzw. Bewertungen hinterlassen.
Halte Themen und Updates zu Deinen Produkte, Dienstleistungen und Projekten aktuell, reagiere transparent und ehrlich, gegebenfalls auch selbstkritisch auf Feedback.
Ist dies der Fall, werden die Grundmechanismen einer solchen sozialen Handelsplattform für den Erfolg eines jeden Teilnehmers greifen.

3.1 Handel mit virtuellen Währungen
Es ist derzeit nicht erlaubt auf avameet Diensten mit virtuellen Währungen zu handeln, sofern der Anbieter kein Gewerbetreibender im Sinne der jeweiligen Gesetzeslage im Land des Unternehmenssitzes ist.

3.2 Spendenaufrufe
Spendenaufrufe sind auf avameet nur erlaubt, wenn hinter diesem Aufruf eine seriöse und reale Organisation steht, bzw. nachvollziehbar wird, welche Person im Nachhinein die Spenden im Sinne des Spendenzwecks weiterleitet.

4. Nennung von Details und Namen bei Problemen mit anderen Nutzern

Bei geschäftlichen und privaten Komplikationen, insbesondere bei Konflikten (kein Geld bekommen, keine Ware erhalten, Partnerin mit bestem Kumpel beim Fremd gehen erwischt), sollte auf eine explizite Nennung des Namens (inkl. verbaler Entgleisungen) verzichtet werden. Dies beinhaltet natürlich auch jede Veröffentlichung von von Chatlogs, Voice-Aufzeichnungen und privaten Nachrichtenverkehr, sofern nicht alle Kommunikationsteilnehmer damit einverstanden sind.
Auch wenn Euch sowas geschehen ist, bedenkt bitte immer, dass weder wir als avameet Community-Support, noch andere Nutzer über die Hintergründe bescheidwissen, bzw. es erst einmal eine Art Gerücht ist, welches wir nicht nachvollziehen können.
Es ist bei solchen Vorkommnissen immer zu empfehlen sich mit dem jeweiligen Kontrahenten persönlich auseinander zu setzen. Eine Veröffentlichung bewirkt meist das Gegenteil und sorgt für nachhaltige negative Auswirkungen.
Auch private Kommunikation auf avameet selbst ist vertraulich zu behandeln und darf nicht veröffentlicht werden.
Sollte es durch Angebote anderer Nutzer, oder Probleme mit anderen Nutzern auf avameet zu Problemen kommt, kannst Du Dich selbstverständlich auch gerne an den avameet Community-Support wenden.
