More information about the WITTENSTEIN Group's data privacy policy and answers to frequently asked questions

1. Online content

We have taken great care in compiling our web pages. However, we cannot be held responsible for the accuracy, completeness and quality of the content, nor for ensuring that it is up-to-date. Liability claims against WITTENSTEIN AG regarding direct, indirect or consequential damages of a pecuniary or non-pecuniary nature caused through the use or non-use of the information presented or as a result of erroneous and incomplete information, are generally excluded, insofar as there is no demonstrable fault of an intentional or grossly negligent nature on the part of WITTENSTEIN AG. All offers are subject to confirmation and are not binding. We reserve the right to alter, extend or delete parts of, or the totality of, our online content without prior notice or to suspend or permanently prevent access to the features by the user. WITTENSTEIN AG accepts no liability for the availability or unavailability – for whatever reason – of the content or services provided.

2. Referrals and links

In the case of direct or indirect referrals to third-party Internet sites ("links") which are outside our sphere of responsibility, WITTENSTEIN AG only accepts liability if it has knowledge of the sites' contents and if it is reasonable and technically possible to prevent use in the case of illegal content. WITTENSTEIN AG herewith explicitly declares that no illegal content was identified on the linked sites at the time the links were placed. WITTENSTEIN AG has no control whatsoever over the current or future design, content or authorship of linked sites. It therefore distances itself herewith from the content of all linked sites that have been changed since the time the links were placed. This statement applies to all links and referrals placed within WITTENSTEIN AG's own Internet domain as well as to third-party entries in WITTENSTEIN AG's guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists. The provider of the linked site is solely responsible for illegal, erroneous or incomplete content and in particular for any damages arising from the use or non-use of such information. No liability will be accepted by the party which merely refers to such a website via a link.

3. Copyright and trademark laws

We endeavour to observe the copyrights of graphics, pictures, audio documents, video sequences and texts in all publications or to use graphics, pictures, audio documents, video sequences and texts we have created ourselves or alternatively to utilize license-free graphics, pictures, audio documents, video sequences and texts. All of the brand names and trademarks named or protected by third parties used on this website are unconditionally subject to the provisions of the respectively valid trademark laws and the rights of ownership of the respectively registered owners. The fact that brands and trademarks are named should not mislead the reader into assuming that brand names are not protected by the rights of third parties.

The copyright for contents we have created and published are the sole property of WITTENSTEIN AG. The reproduction or use of such graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications without our express consent is prohibited.

4. Privacy policy

Where it is possible to enter personal or business data (e-mail addresses, names and addresses) in the online content, the user shall divulge this data on an explicitly voluntary basis. The utilization of all offered services shall – as far as technically possible and reasonable – also be permitted without specifying such data and / or by specifying anonymous data or a pseudonym.
