This document explains your rights and obligations on the AmsterdamTourist.info website. We have tried to make it as readable as possible, but please read it carefully because you are bound by its content when using this website.
The AmsterdamTourist.info website contains a lot of information. We created most of it ourselves, while our visitors have created other parts of it. Although we carefully draft the information we publish and we try to correct any mistakes as soon as possible, you should be aware that you use any of the information on this website at your own risk. You should be even more careful when using the visitor-contributed information like the comments of our blog posts. This means that – to the furthest extent permissible by law – we are not “contractually” or “extracontractually” responsible, in any way, for any harm this website (or any external website we link to) might cause you … unless, of course, we publish information that is intentionally fraudulent or harmful information – consider this unlikely!
All materials on this site are protected by copyright and intellectual property laws and are the property of AmsterdamTourist.info or their respected owners. Unless stated otherwise, you may access and download the materials located on AmsterdamTourist.info only for personal, non-commercial use.
If we discover that you have used our copyright materials in contravention of the license above, we may bring legal proceedings against you, seeking monetary damages and/or an injunction to stop you using those materials. You could also be ordered to pay legal costs.

If you become aware of any material on our website that you believe infringes your or any other person’s copyright, please report this by contacting us.
When you participate in comment discussions attached to blog posts and/or articles, you are responsible for what you post. Although we will not screen all contributed content, we reserve the right to remove anything we deem inappropriate, without any possibility of recourse or redress on your part.
Be aware that some users will rely on the content of your posts. You – and not AmsterdamTourist.info – are responsible for your posts, and you hereby fully indemnify us from any claim we might receive from third parties harmed by your content.
We take privacy seriously.

We may also provide the information collected about you if, in cases of fraud or other criminal activities, we are subpoenaed to do so by competent legal authorities.
If you post to our blogs, you need to leave some additional traces of your identity: name, e-mail address, etc. However, unless we are legally forced to do so, we will not combine our server logs to create detailed tracking of your behavior or sessions on our website.
