Liability for Contents of Online Information
As the provider of contents in accordance with Section 7 Paragraph 1 of the Tele-Media Law, the MIPLC shall be responsible for any contents which it makes available for use in accordance with general legal provisions. The MIPLC makes every effort to provide timely and accurate information on this Web site. Nevertheless, errors and inaccuracies cannot be completely ruled out. Therefore, the MIPLC does not assume any liability for the relevance, accuracy, completeness or quality of the information provided. The MIPLC shall not be liable for damage of a tangible or intangible nature caused directly or indirectly through the use or failure to use the information offered and/or through the use of faulty or incomplete information unless it is verifiably culpable of intent or gross negligence. The same shall apply to any downloadable software available free of charge. The MIPLC reserves the right to modify, supplement, or delete any or all of the information offered on its Internet site, or to temporarily or permanently cease publication thereof without prior and separate notification.
Links to Internet Sites of Third Parties
This Internet site includes links to external pages. The respective provider shall be responsible for the contents of any linked external pages. In establishing the initial link, the MIPLC has reviewed the respective external content in order to determine whether such link entailed possible civil or criminal responsibility. However, a constant review of linked external pages is unreasonable without concrete reason to believe that a violation of the law may be involved. If the MIPLC determines such or it is pointed out by others that an external offer to which it is connected via a link entails civil or criminal responsibility, then the MIPLC will immediately eliminate any link to this offer. The MIPLC expressly dissociates itself from such contents.
