Labdoo’s Terms, Conditions and Data Protection
Welcome to project Labdoo. By registering and using the Labdoo platform, you are agreeing to these terms. Please read them carefully.
Using the Labdoo humanitarian social network
The users of the Labdoo social network expressly understand that Labdoo is a collaborative, non-profit, freely available and open source project whose goal is to help spread education around the world and agree that your use of the services provided by the Labdoo platform is at your sole risk and that the services are provided “as is” and “as available.” Labdoo shall not be liable to you for any direct, indirect, incidental, special consequential or exemplary damages which may be incurred by you, however caused and under any theory of liability.
Labdoo does not represent or warrant that:
- Your use of the services will meet your requirements,
- Your use of the services will be uninterrupted, timely, secure or free from error,
- Any information obtained by you as a result of your use of the services will be accurate or reliable,
- That defects in the operation or functionality of any software provided to you as part of the services will be corrected.
Any material downloaded or otherwise obtained through the use of the Labdoo system is done at your own discretion and risk and you will be solely responsible for any damage to your computer system or other device or loss of data that results from the download of any such material. No advice or information, whether oral or written, obtained by you through or from Labdoo shall create any warranty. Labdoo expressly disclaims all warranties and conditions of any kind, whether express or implied.
Liability for content
While the contents of the Labdoo site were created with great care for the accuracy, completeness or timeliness of the content, Labdoo cannot take any responsibility for the ways such contents are used. As a platform Labdoo is not obliged to monitor transmitted or stored information or to investigate circumstances that indicate illegal activity. Obligations to remove or block the use of information under the general laws remain unaffected. Labdoo will only be able to actuate on a specific infringement from the date of knowledge of such infringement. Upon notification and proof of such violations, Labdoo will remove the content.
Liability for links
This site contains links to external websites over which the Labdoo platform has no control. In consequence, Labdoo cannot accept responsibility for these websites. While the linked pages are checked for possible legal violations at the time of linking, a permanent control of linked pages is unreasonable without concrete evidence of a violation. Upon notification and proof of such violations, Labdoo will remove the notified links.
The content uploaded to the Labdoo platform is subject to Copyright Laws. The reproduction, adaptation, distribution or any kind of exploitation outside the limits of the copyrights require the written consent of the author. Insofar the content is created by a user, the authorship is respected. A user uploading content to Labdoo should note that such content may at some point be shared with other third party social network platforms. Because these other social networks have their own terms and conditions, Labdoo cannot take any responsibility for the ways the content is managed in their platforms.
Should a user become aware of any copyright infringement, Labdoo asks for the prompt notification. Upon notification and proof of such violations, the content will be removed.

Jurisdiction and legality of content
Publication of information found inside the Labdoo platform may be in violation of the laws of the country or jurisdiction from where you are viewing this information. The Labdoo database is stored on servers located in various places such as the European Union and the United States of America, and is maintained in reference to the protections afforded under local and federal law of these countries.

Users should be aware that data transmission over the Internet (such as communication by e-mail) can have security gaps and that a complete protection of data against access by third parties is in general not possible.
Server log files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
- Browser type and browser version.
- Operating system used.
- Referrer URL.
- Host name of the accessing computer.
- Time of the server request.
These data cannot be assigned to specific persons. A merge of this data with other data sources will not be done. We reserve the right to check this data retrospectively, if we become aware of specific indications for illegal use.
If you send us inquiries via the contact form, your details from the inquiry form, including the contact details you provided there, will be stored in order to process the request and in case of follow-up questions. We will not share this information without your consent.
If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we require an e-mail address from you, as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and that you agree to receive the newsletter. Further, data is not collected. We use this data exclusively for the delivery of the requested information and do not pass it on to third parties. The granted consent to the storage of the data, the e-mail address and their use for sending the newsletter can be revoked at any time, for example via the “unsubscribe” link in the newsletter.
This website uses functions of the web analytics service Google Analytics. The Provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”. These are text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of the use of the website by you. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
We have activated the function of IP anonymization on this website. This feature ensures your IP address cannot be associated with a specific person. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The anonymized IP address provided by Google Analytics as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
You can prevent the storage of cookies by a corresponding setting of your browser software; however, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use all the features of this website to the fullest extent possible. In addition, you may prevent the collection by Google of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your anonymized IP address) as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading the browser plug-in available under the following link and install: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en (link is external)

Note that the Labdoo website already anonymizes your IP address to protect your privacy regardless of whether you opt-out from Google Analytics. (See also IP Anonymization section.)
We have entered into a contract data processing agreement with Google and fully implement the strict requirements of the data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.
Demographics in Google Analytics
This website uses the demographics feature of Google Analytics. As a result, reports can be produced that contain statements on the age, gender and interests of the site visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google and third-party visitor data. This data cannot be assigned to a specific person. You can disable this feature at any time through the ad settings in your Google Account, or generally prohibit the collection of your data by Google Analytics as outlined in the section “Opposition to data collection”.
