We have taken the utmost care in preparing the content of our website. Despite meticulous work, we accept no liability for the correctness or the completeness of the contents; nor do we guarantee that they are up to date.

As a service provider we are responsible for our own web content pursuant to § 5 Telemediengesetz (TMG) (the German Telemedia Act) and to general legislation. However, pursuant to §§ 8–10 of the TMG, service providers are not obliged to monitor the external information transmitted or stored by them, or to research circumstances pointing to illegal activity. This does not affect their obligations pursuant to general legislation to delete or block the use of information. The latter liability only becomes possible, however, at the point that a concrete violation of the law becomes known. If such legal violations become known to us, we will remove the content in question immediately.

Our website contains links to the external websites of third parties (“external links”) over the content of which we have no control. We can therefore accept no responsibility for the content of these external links. Responsibility for external links always lies with the provider or operator of the website in question. At the time of linking, the external links were checked for possible legal violations. At the time of linking, no legal violations could be identified in the content of the external links. It is not reasonable to expect the provider to have permanent control over the external links without any concrete indication of a legal violation. If legal violations become known to us, however, we will remove the links in question immediately.

We make a continuous effort to provide accurate and up-to-date information. We cannot, however, accept any responsibility or liability for the up-to-dateness, accuracy, completeness or quality of the statements made or the information supplied, or of that referred to. Any access to the information contained on our website or information we refer to as well as their use and content are the user’s own responsibility. 

The DGI e. V. accepts no liability for damage, of whatever kind, incurred in connection with accessing its website, and its use or non-use, whether direct or consequential damage, nor for any erroneous or incomplete information on its website.

Any product information is intended only for users in the Federal Republic of Germany, even if users outside the Federal Republic of Germany have access to this information.

The Hamburg district court ruled on 12 May 1998 (Az.: 312 0 85/98) that when a person includes a link on a website, he/she may under certain circumstances be responsible for the content of the external link, unless he/she has explicitly ruled out such responsibility.

Despite the fact that we take great care to provide good-quality links, we hereby declare that we accept no responsibility for the content of the external links and do not claim these as our own. This declaration applies to all links on our website. We are in no way responsible for the content of the websites that contain links to our site. We are not in a position to identify or check such links. All violations of applicable law, common decency and good conduct that become known to us will result in the immediate deletion of links, contributions, graphics or similar.

In including links to external websites (hyperlinks) the DGI e. V. claims neither these websites nor their content as its own. Furthermore, the DGI e. V. is not responsible for the availability of these websites or their content. Users follow hyperlink connections to these websites at their own risk. The provider of the linked website bears sole responsibility for its content and in particular for any damages ensuing from the use or non-use of information supplied in this way, not the provider who merely referred to the website in question. This restriction likewise applies to external contributions in guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists. 

Furthermore, we have no influence on the way the information provided here is used, passed on, or passed on in altered form by the user; we can therefore not be liable for any damage incurred, lost advantages or any other direct or indirect consequences arising from the use of the information supplied here.

None of the information on this website may be used as advertising or as solicitations to purchase or use any product that can be construed as inadmissible under the laws of the country in which you are located. Certain links on this website lead to sources located on other servers that are operated by third parties and are therefore beyond our control. Therefore the DGI e. V. can accept no liability for the correctness, accuracy or any other aspect of information on such servers.
