Content of the website

The Centre Responsible Digitality (ZEVEDI) makes every effort to ensure that the information provided on this website is correct and up-to-date. Nevertheless, errors and ambiguities cannot be completely excluded. Therefore ZEVEDI does not assume any liability for the topicality, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided.

ZEVEDI shall not be liable for any material or immaterial damage caused directly or indirectly by the use or non-use of the information provided or by the use of incorrect or incomplete information unless ZEVEDI can be held liable for intent or gross negligence. The same applies to software made available for download free of charge.

ZEVEDI may without prior notice change, supplement or delete parts of the internet offer or the whole offer or cease publication temporarily or permanently.

References and links

The responsibility for “external content”, which is made available, for example, through direct or indirect links to other providers, requires, among other things, positive and up-to-date knowledge of the content. ZEVEDI has no influence on the current and future design and contents of the linked pages and does not adopt these contents as its own. Therefore ZEVEDI expressly dissociates itself from all contents of all linked/connected pages which have been changed after the link was set. This statement is valid for all links and references within the own internet offer as well as for external entries in guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists established by ZEVEDI.

For illegal, faulty or incomplete contents and especially for damages resulting from the use or non-use of such information, only the provider of the linked page is liable, not the one who only refers to the respective publication via links. ZEVEDI has no positive knowledge of illegal or offensive contents on the linked pages of other providers. Should the linked pages of other providers nevertheless contain illegal or offensive contents, ZEVEDI expressly distances itself from these contents.

ZEVEDI is not responsible for any contents linked or referred to from his pages – unless he has full knowledge of illegal contents and would be able to prevent the visitors of his site from viewing those pages.

Copyright and trademark law

In all publications ZEVEDI endeavours to observe the copyrights of the graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts used, to use graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts created by ZEVEDI itself or to use licence-free graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts. All brand names and trademarks mentioned within the Internet offer and possibly protected by third parties are subject without restriction to the provisions of the respective valid trademark law and the ownership rights of the respective registered owners. The mere mention of a trademark does not imply that it is not protected by the rights of third parties!

The copyright for published objects created by ZEVEDI itself remains solely with the Centre Responsible Digitality. Any duplication or use of objects such as diagrams, sounds or texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without ZEVEDI’s agreement. The layout of the homepage, the graphics used and all other contents are protected by copyright.

If parts or individual formulations of this text do not, no longer or not completely correspond to the applicable legal situation, the remaining parts of the document remain unaffected in their content and validity.
