Liability Exclusion and Further Terms of Use
The content published on this website is information of a general nature. It is neither intended nor suitable as a substitute for individual consultation with a qualified professional which takes into account the specific circumstances of the respective case. Please contact Schneider + Partner WP/StB GmbH if you require any additional information or advice regarding your specific circumstances.

The information presented on this website has been researched with the utmost in care. This notwithstanding, Schneider + Partner WP/StB GmbH assumes no liability for the validity, completeness and topicality of the information provided. Schneider + Partner WP/StB GmbH does not assume any liability for damages that occur due to the inaccuracy, incompleteness or lack of topicality of information provided on its website.

All information and advice on this website is also non-binding in cases where an advisor-client relationship exists between Schneider + Partner WP/StB GmbH and the user of content provided on the website. In the same way, any other information or advice communicated verbally or in writing outside of the framework of an advisor-client relationship is non-binding. Email enquiries neither automatically establish an advisor-client relationship, nor can they be regarded as evidence of an existing advisor-client relationship.

In its role as “content provider” under the terms of §5 para. 1 of the German “Mediendienste-Staatsvertrag” (legislation on electronic media), Schneider + Partner WP/StB GmbH is “responsible under the terms of general law” for any of its “own content” it makes available for use on its website. A distinction is to be made between this “own content” and cross-references (so-called “links”) to content made available by other providers. Insofar as a link is used to refer to content on a third-party website, the respective external provider shall be liable for the content referred to by that link. The linking of this website to third-party websites by the provider does not see them adopt the content or opinions of such websites as their own. It is not the provider’s intention to suggest that they have collaborated on the technical design, layout or content of linked third-party websites. Unless Schneider + Partner WP/StB GmbH has positive knowledge of linked external content (including any of a criminal or illegal nature) and it is both technically feasible and reasonable for Schneider + Partner WP/StB GmbH to prevent use of it, it is the respective third-party provider that is responsible for that content and its availability (see § 5 of the “Mediendienste-Staatsvertrag”).

“Links” are “living” (i.e. dynamic) references. Schneider + Partner WP/StB GmbH checks external content for potential violations of civil or criminal law prior to the initial creation of a link to it. Schneider + Partner WP/StB GmbH shall not be obliged to continuously monitor linked content for any changes which may give rise to other violations. Schneider + Partner WP/StB GmbH shall only remove links to third-party websites if it ascertains or is made aware that a specific piece of content to which it has created a link is likely to give rise to a violation of civil or criminal law. In addition, Schneider + Partner WP/StB GmbH shall only remove such links if it is technically feasible and reasonable to do so. Technical feasibility and reasonableness shall not be influenced by the fact that the illegal or criminal content may still be accessible from other servers even after access via the Schneider + Partner WP/StB GmbH website has been prevented.

Schneider + Partner WP/StB GmbH accepts no liability for damages that occur through the use or non-use of information available on third-party websites referenced by Schneider + Partner WP/StB GmbH using a hyperlink or other link.
