Legal notice / Website publisher

1. Content
The „Lebendige Stadt” Foundation assumes no responsibility whatsoever for the topicality, accuracy, completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims against the „Lebendige Stadt” Foundation relating to immaterial or material damage caused by the use or non-use of any information provided, including any kind of information which is incomplete or incorrect, will therefore be rejected unless wrongful intent on the part of the "Lebendige Stadt" Foundation is proven. In this connection, the Foundation would like to point out that the details contained herein are partly based on independent reports and information from third parties. Moreover, the content of this website does not constitute a contractual offer. The Foundation reserves the express right to change, extend or delete parts of the website or the complete website, or to temporarily or finally discontinue operation of the website without special announcement.


2. Referrals and links 
The „Lebendige Stadt” Foundation is not responsible for any contents of external sites linked or referred to from these pages unless the Foundation has full knowledge of illegal contents and unless it has the technical means to, and can be reasonably expected to, prevent access to such sites. The „Lebendige Stadt” Foundation therefore explicitly states that it had no knowledge regarding illegal information on sites to which links are provided. The Foundation has no influence whatsoever on the current and future design or content of such sites. The content of these sites may be changed after the links were published and is not monitored by the Foundation. This provision applies to all links and referrals to external sites published on the Foundation website as well as to third-party contributions made in guest books, forums and mailing lists set up by the Foundation. The provider of the linked external site, and not the site which simply features links referring to the said site, is solely liable for illegal, inaccurate or incomplete content and in particular for damage resulting from the use or non-use of the provided information.


3. Legal validity of this disclaimer 
This disclaimer is to be regarded as part of the Internet publication from which you were referred to this page. If parts or wordings of this statement do not comply, no longer comply or do not fully comply with the current legislation, this will not affect the content or validity of the remaining parts of the document.
