§15 Agreement on internet access via LAN and/or WLAN

The hotel owner operates an internet access via LAN and WLAN. He gives the guest permission for internet access for the duration of stay. The permission for joint use is a service the hotel provides and may withdraw at any time. The log-in into our system means that the guest agrees to the conditions of use according to §15.

The owner particularly reserves the right to bar the access to certain websites or internet services via WLAN (e.g. presenting violent or pornographic content or subject to charge) at his own discretion at any time.
Gaining all technical and organizational means for using the internet is the sole responsibility of the co-user.
