Online content

HEITEC AG assumes no warranty of any kind for the currency, correctness, completeness, or quality of the information provided. Liability claims against HEITEC AG relating to damages of a tangible or conceptual nature that were caused through use or non-use of the information offered or through the use of incorrect and incomplete information are fundamentally precluded hereby, unless HEITEC AG can be shown to be at fault due to intentional misconduct or gross negligence. All offers are nonbinding and subject to change. HEITEC AG expressly reserves the right to modify, add to, or delete portions of the pages or the entire content without separate announcement, or to temporarily or permanently discontinue publication. Naturally, HEITEC AG always strives to make its content as user-friendly as possible.

References and links

For direct or indirect links to external websites (“hyperlinks”) that are beyond HEITEC AG’s area of responsibility, any liability obligation would take effect exclusively in the event that HEITEC AG has knowledge of the content and if it were technically possible and could reasonably be expected that it could prevent use in the event of unlawful content. HEITEC AG hereby expressly states that at the time of linking no illegal content was evident in the pages being linked. HEITEC AG has no influence whatsoever on the current or future design, content, or authorship of linked pages. We therefore expressly disavow all content on all linked pages that were modified after linking. The provider of the referenced page is exclusively liable for illegal, erroneous, or incomplete content, and in particular for damages arising from the use or non-use of such offered information, and not the party who merely refers to the particular publication via links.
