Note on liability

1. Contents of the website

The IfL endeavours to ensure that the information presented on this website is correct and up to date. However, mistakes may occur. Therefore the IfL does not guarantee the relevance, correctness or quality of the information. The IfL does not accept liability for material or immaterial damage arising directly or indirectly from the use or non-use of the information presented or the use of inaccurate and incomplete information, insofar as the IfL cannot be proven to have been at fault intentionally or by negligence. All offers are subject to alteration and are not binding. The IfL expressly reserves the right to alter, add to or delete the entire website or parts thereof without separate notice, and to terminate their publication temporarily or permanently.

2. References and links

Responsibility for “foreign contents”, provided e.g. through direct or indirect links to other providers presupposes positive knowledge of illegal contents. The IfL has no influence whatsoever on “foreign contents” and does not accept these as its own. The IfL has no knowledge of illegal or offensive contents in the pages of other providers linked to the IfL website. Should the linked sites of other providers contain illegal or offensive contents, the IfL dissociates itself from these contents for all links and references outside its own internet pages as well as outside entries in guestbooks, discussion fora and mailing lists set up by the IfL. Only the provider of the website to which the link leads is liable for illegal, inaccurate or incomplete contents and especially for damage arising from the use or non-use of such information, and not the provider who merely refers to the respective publication via links.

3. Copyright and trademarks

The IfL endeavours to respect the copyright of graphics, recordings, video sequences and texts used in its publications, and endeavours to use graphics, video sequences and texts produced by the IfL or unlicensed graphics, recordings, video sequences and texts. All protected brands or trademarks named in the website are subject to the relevant applicable trademark law and ownership rights of the registered owners without limitation. Naming alone does not imply that brands or trademarks are not protected by the rights of third persons. The copyright for objects published and produced by the IfL itself remains solely the property of the author of the pages. Reproduction or utilization of such graphics, recordings, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without the express permission of the IfL.
