13.1. The Administrator is not liable for:
      13.1.1. A violation committed in or sustained by the Tourism Information System or its consequences, or consequences thereof of which it is unaware or concerning which it has actively taken measures to terminate the violation or to eliminate the consequences.

      13.1.2. the damage caused to the User or third parties in connection with the fact that the Administrator used their remedies (e.g., they removed Content that was in violation from the Tourism Information System or prevented access to it, restricted the rights of the User or prevented them from accessing their user account or the Tourism Information System), if this was necessary due to a complaint submitted to the Administrator concerning the violation or due to the Administrator's suspicion of violation, or directly due to that fact that the Content or User's behaviour is in violation with the Conditions of Use, the good practice enforced in the Tourism Information System or legislation. In such a case, the Administrator shall not be liable for the damage sustained even if the complaint was unfounded or it later becomes apparent that it was not a violation;
