    2. Only persons over the age of 18 may create a User Account. If the User Account is registered for a company, legal entity under public law or special fund under public law, the user guarantees that it is authorised to represent the legal entity.
    3. The user provides only correct and complete information and updates the information if necessary. Furthermore, the user undertakes not to use a pseudonym or other name that could infringe third party rights in any way (e.g. surnames and brand names of third parties as well as pseudonyms which could infringe intellectual property or similar protective rights).

    1. The basic use of the Website is free of charge, whereby this includes that ArcelorMittal may use the content generated within the scope of use for its own purposes, i.e. this content constitutes a consideration for the use of the website.
    2. The respective user is responsible for all activities within the framework of the User Account and the services provided for the User Account. In particular, users are obliged to use the services only within the scope of the offered functionalities and only for lawful purposes in accordance with the agreed terms of use and the applicable laws.

    7. Users shall indemnify and hold us harmless from and against any and all claims asserted against us by third parties alleging that the content contributed by the user infringes their rights or violates statutory provisions; this includes the reasonable costs of legal defence. This does not apply if the users are not responsible for the infringement.
    8. ArcelorMittal may block users temporarily or permanently from all or individual services if (i) there are concrete indications that users are violating or have violated these TOU and/or applicable law, unless the users are not responsible for this violation, (ii) ArcelorMittal has specific evidence that the security of the login information has been compromised, or (iii) ArcelorMittal has another legitimate interest in the blocking, e.g. in order to address specific dangers to the website. The legitimate interests of the users will be taken into account before blocking. If users repeatedly violate these TOU, we reserve the right to permanently block the User Account and to permanently exclude the user from future use of the Services. Other rights of termination remain unaffected.
