Note on comments
ICPMA is not in a position to inspect content entered by visitors to this site (‘comments’) in advance. The author is personally liable for his or her content. The author guarantees ICPMA that all legal provisions will be upheld and that the ownership of all necessary rights and the safeguarding of contractual obligations will be upheld. Any liability on the part of ICPMA is excluded for all reasons.
Content does not necessarily reflect the opinion of ICPMA. ICPMA reserves the right, if it receives information on illegal content or content that is contrary to common decency or other content that is contrary to the image and/or commercial interests of ICPMA, to delete or modify the same or to block access to it. ICPMA also reseves the right to modify and/or delete comments at any time without stating a reason. No claims can be made against ICPMA in this event. ICPMA expressly reserves the right to claim compensation and bring charges for relevant events. The authors must fully indemnify ICPMA and keep it harmless in any case.
Note on external links
Despite careful control of the contents we do not accept liability for the content of external links or for the content of our own site. The operators of linked sites hold exclusive liability for the content of these linked sites.
Exclusion of liability
1. Content of the online presence
The author does not accept any liability for the current, correct or full status of the information provided, or for the quality of the same. Liability claims against authors that relate to damage of an immaterial or idea-based nature caused by the use or non-use of the information on offer and/or by the use of erroneous or incomplete information are excluded in principle if there is no proven wilful or grossly negligent culpability on the part of the author.
All offers are non-binding and without obligation. The author expressly reserves the right to modify, supplement or delete parts of the site or the entire presence without special notification or to stop publication temporarily or permanently.
2. Referrals and links
In the case of direct or indirect referrals to third-party websites (‘hyperlinks’) that are not within the scope of responsibility of the author, a liability obligation would only come into force if the authors are aware of the contents and it would be technically possible or reasonable for them to prevent use in the case of illegal content.
The author hereby expressly declares that no illegal content was visible on the linked sites when the link was created. The author has no influence on the current and future design, the content or the authorship of the linked/connected sites that are changed after the link is created. For that reason the author hereby expressly distances himself/herself from the contents of all linked/connected sites that are changed after the link is created. This statement is valid for all links and referrals within its own Internet presence and for third-party entries in objects established by the author such as guest books, discussion forums, link directories, mailing lists and all other forms of data bases where external write access is possible to the content. The provider of the linked site holds sole liability for illegal, erroneous or incomplete contents and in particular for damage caused as a result of the use or non-use of information presented in this way. Parties that only refer to the relevant publication via links are not liable.
3. Copyright and trademark law
The author will endeavour to take the copyrights of the images, graphics, sound documents, video sequences and text into account in all publications and to use images, graphics, sound documents, video sequences and text that he or she has created himself or herself or to use licence-free graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts.
All brands and trademarks named within the Internet presence that may be protected by third-party rights are subject without restriction to the conditions in the relevant valid trademark law and the titles of the registered owners. The mere naming does not allow the conclusion that trademarks are not protected by third-party rights.
The copyright for published objects that were created by the author himself or herself remains solely with the site author. The duplication or use of such graphics, sound documents, video sequences and text in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without the express approval of the author.
4. Data protection
Insofar as there is an opportunity to input personal or business data (email address, name, address) within the Internet presence, the user will provide this data on an expressly voluntary basis. The use of and payment for all services on offer is also permitted without the entry of such data or with the entry of anonymised data or a pseudonym where this is technically possible and reasonable. The use by third parties of contact details published as part of this site’s legal notice or similar declarations, such as postal addresses, telephone and fax numbers as well as email addresses, for the purposes of sending information that is not expressly requested is not permitted. We expressly reserve the right to take legal steps against the sender of so-called spam mails in the event of violation of this interdict.
5. Legal validity of this exclusion of liability
This exclusion of liability must be considered part of the Internet presence from which this page is linked. Where sections or individual formulations in this text do not comply, no longer comply or do not fully comply with the valid legal situation then the remaining parts of the document will remain unaffected in their content and their validity.
In the event of defects (e.g. with regard to content or a possible violation of copyright) we request prior contact to avoid unnecessary legal disputes and costs so that the discrepancies can be resolved amicably and informally where possible. Expenses for a legal warning notice will be rejected as unfounded in the context of the legal obligation to mitigate damages if no contact is made in advance via the email address firstname.lastname@example.org pointing out possible defects.
