ALOEUS - why this name:

Using the Aloeus portal

The Aloeus portal is intended to serve as an optimal cost-neutral tool for all users, so we ask you to keep normal and proper behavior in mind while using our website, so that all users can consistently enjoy our portal. Nevertheless, a few remarks are to be found here, which should also be regarded as legally binding, in addition to our terms and conditions.

 


I – User creation of locations
You are welcome to create your own locations in the Aloeus portal and thus expand the content database of Aloeus, but please note:

  • Under the following conditions:

 

a. Responsibility: You take responsibility for your edits, as we only provide your content on the ALOEUS portal.

b. Courtesy: Please contribute to a pleasant climate and do not bother other users.

c. Statutory behavior: You do not violate copyrights or other rights.

d. Do not harm: Please do not damage our technical infrastructure.

e. Terms of use and guidelines: You follow the terms of use as well as the applicable community guidelines when visiting our sites or participating in our communities.

 

  • The ALOEUS portal is not comparable to "Yellow Pages" or is even to Internet search engines, but has its own content database structures. The Aloeus team will therefore first verify whether the location data entered by you fits at all into the address list of the ALOEUS database before the publication of your location record. Only after checking, this location record is cleared in the ALOEUS or again completely deleted by the Aloeus team.

 

  • You consent to the transfer of the content-location records you have submitted to the content database of the ALODATA Information Publishing Company GmbH & Co.KG after saving the locations. You agree to this by entering the content-data-record, which defines this entry as completely cost-neutrally, as a result of which no professional consultation took place and you have automatically transferred the copyrights of the content-data record to the ALODATA Information Publishing Company GmbH & Co.KG.

 

  • So, you must be aware of the following:

You place your contributions under a free license. You must, in principle, be subject to a free and open license (unless your contribution is in the public domain), contributions and edits that you make to one of our ALOEUS Internet pages or in one of our ALOEUS projects.

 

  • Not professional advice:

The content of articles and other projects is for information purposes only and does not constitute professional advice.

 

 

II - User reviews:

You can evaluate each location data record located in the ALOEUS portal yourself. Your review is evaluated according to a mathematical schema. We use the weighted Bayes valuation. We are of the opinion that through this valuation method, the fairest evaluation for the individual ALOEUS database location takes place. Please note:

 

  • Responsibility: You take responsibility for your edits, as we only provide your content on the ALOEUS portal. Other users can use a symbol to evaluate your review. We do not have any influence on this as the ALOEUS portal operator, which is why this responsibility lies with the ALOEUS portal users.

 

  • Please keep in mind that single small details should not be decisive for an evaluation, but instead the whole.

 

  • You can change your rating at any time, because more experiences result in possible different individual evaluations. Nevertheless, you always only have one vote. If you do not change your rating, you cannot cast multiple votes at the same time.

 

  • Courtesy: Please contribute to a pleasant climate and do not bother other users.

 

  • Not professional advice:

The contents of user ratings are for informational purposes only and do not constitute professional advice.
