The right of termination for a special reason (cf. art. 5 g) is not affected by this.
b. When appropriate and possible for WCSO first to give a notice, the member will, upon receipt of such warning, have the possibility to explain and possibly solve the problem.

c. WCSO can, however, at any time delete an account or establish a blocking, if so requested by court or public authorities or if the membership has ended. This is also the case, if a cancellation or blocking is necessary in order to avoid any damages for WCSO or other members.

Information about the right of revocation
When registering at WCSO the member has the right to revoke the registration within a period of 14 days. The member is not under an obligation to give reasons for the revocation.

The right of revocation is valid, if the request as to cancellation is sent in due time.
