Apartments and areas within businesses and government agencies that are not open to everyone are examples of places that are not open to the public. You are obliged to mark locations and the status of locations truthfully. We can delete incorrect marks at any time. In addition, we reserve the right to delete or partially remove entries and changes made by users who repeatedly (at least twice) add or mark locations incorrectly and if need be, to delete such a user’s account. 1.3 We do not check or monitor whether the entries and markings of places made by the users of MapMyDay.org and Wheelmap.org. are accurate or up-to-date. Also, changes can occur after a place has been added or marked that have not yet been taken into account on the Wheelmap and of which we have no knowledge. As a result, we are not responsible for the accuracy and currency of entries and are not liable therefor. In this we are also dependent upon your assistance. Should you find that a place has been added or marked incorrectly, you can correct this error yourself. 1.4 Users who mark places on Wheelmap.org using MapMyDay.org grant Sozialhelden e.V. the irrevocable, unlimited right of use of those place markings.
