PALFINGER Communication Policy

We look forward to receive your comments. Please note the following general rules for comment submissions:

The purpose of the blog comments function is to promote objective discussion. To this end, the editorial team reserves the right to delete comments that are not conducive to such discussion. Although we do not check comments before they are posted online, we will use the option to delete them if so required. You do not have an automatic right to be published.

All comments will be unlocked by our editorial team. Not for censorship but to prevent insulting, racist or discriminatory comments.

Due to this there might be a delay at night and on weekends. We apologize for this.

Your e-mail address will not be made public and will only be stored in connection with the comment.
