  • has provided incorrect information upon registration,
  • has violated these terms or his due diligence obligations concerning the handling of the access data, or
  • has violated applicable law when accessing or using the website.
The data submitted and the user account shall be immediately deleted by Vlieseline upon request by a dealer.

It is furthermore the sole responsibility of dealers to update their user account data at all times.
