Exclusion of liability

1. Content of the online offer

The MESSE ESSEN GmbH shall accept no liability whatsoever for the relevance, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. The MESSE ESSEN GmbH shall particularly offer no guarantee for the fact that such brochure, forms or other documents as are accessible online, conform in content and form to the printed version of the publicised documents. In case of doubt, the printed form of the publicised version shall be binding. Such liability claims against MESSE ESSEN GmbH, as are related to damages of material or immaterial nature, caused by the utilisation or non-utilisation of the information presented or through the utilisation of wrong or incomplete information, are basically ruled out as long as this has not been caused by evidentially deliberate acts or wanton negligence on the part of MESSE ESSEN GmbH.

All offers are subject to change without notice and are non-binding. MESSE ESSEN GmbH reserves the exclusive right to change, complement, delete or halt publication completely or for a limited period, of parts of the pages or entire offer without separate notification.

2. Cross-references and links

In case of direct or indirect cross-references to such extraneous internet pages ("Links") as lie outside the range of responsibility of MESSE ESSEN GmbH, liability obligation will be applicable solely to such a case in which MESSE ESSEN GmbH is aware of the contents and in which it is technically possible and reasonably expectable of it to prevent usage in case of contents in violation of legal provisions.

MESSE ESSEN GmbH therefore declares exclusively that the respectively linked pages were free of illegal contents at the time the links were generated. MESSE ESSEN GmbH has no influence of any kind, on current and future design as well as on the contents of the linked pages. It therefore, hereby expressly dissociates itself from all linked pages that are altered after the generation of links. This disclaimer applies to all links and cross-references generated within its own website as well as to extraneous entries made in such visitors? books, discussion forums and mailing lists as were created by the author himself. The provider of the page, to which reference was made, not the party simply referring to the respective publication through links, shall, alone, be liable for illegal, wrong or incomplete contents and particularly for such damages as may result from the utilisation or non-utilisation of such information.

3. Copyright and Flag right

MESSE ESSEN GmbH does its best to respect the copyrights of the graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts applied in all publications and to use such graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts as are generated by it or take advantage of license-free graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts.

All brands and trademarks mentioned within the internet offer and if applicable, covered by the protective rights of third parties, shall be subject to the provisions of the respectively applicable flag rights and proprietary rights of the respectively registered owner, in an unlimited manner. The conclusion that trademarks are not covered by the protective rights of third parties shall not be drawn on grounds of mere specification!

The copyright for such publicised objects as were created by the MESSE ESSEN GmbH itself shall remain solely with the MESSE ESSEN GmbH. A duplication or application of such graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications is non-permissible without the express approval of the MESSE ESSEN GmbH.
