Data protection

ontent of the online offering
IFN does not provide any guarantee whatsoever for the topicality, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. All liability claims against the author, which relate to material or intangible damage, caused by use or non-use of the information presented or by use of erroneous and incomplete information, are excluded, provided the author is not verifiably culpable of deliberate intention or gross negligence. All offers are subject to change without notice and non-binding. The IFN explicitly reserves the right to change, add to or delete parts of the pages or the entire offer or to temporarily or finally cease publication without separate announcement.

In the case of direct or indirect links ("hyperlinks") to third party websites, which lie outside the IFN's area of responsibility, an obligation to accept liability would only come into effect if the IFN had knowledge of the content and it was technically possible and reasonable to expect it to prevent its use in case of unlawful content. The IFN herewith expressly declares that at the time of setting the link there was no identifiable illegal content on the pages to be linked. IFN has no influence whatsoever on the current and future design, content or authorship of the linked pages. Therefore, it herewith expressly distances itself from all content of all linked pages, which were changed after the link was set. This applies to all links set within our own internet offering and to third party entries in guest books, discussion forums, link lists, mailing lists and in all other forms of databases set up by IFN, to which external write access is possible. The provider of the site to which links are set is solely responsible for illegal, incorrect or incomplete content and in particular for any damage or losses resulting from the use or non-use of such information provided, and not the person who merely refers to the respective publication by setting links.

Copyright and trademark law
The IFN makes every reasonable effort to observe copyrights of the graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts used in all publications, to use graphics, sound documents, video sequences texts created by itself or to use licence-free graphics, sound documents, video sequences and tests. All brandmarks and trademarks named within the internet offering and possibly protected by third parties are subject to the unconditional provisions of the respective valid trademark law and the rights of ownership of the respective registered owner. Mere naming of a brand or trade name gives no cause to conclude that trademarks are not protected by third party rights! The copyright for published objects created by the author themselves remains solely the right of the author of the pages. Reproduction or use of such graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without the explicit prior consent of the author.

Data protection
If, within the internet offering, there is an option for entering personal or business details (e-mail addresses, names, addresses), the disclosure of this data by the user is on an explicitly voluntary basis. Use of and payment for all services offered - where possible and reasonable - is also permitted without giving such details or by giving details rendered anonymous or a pseudonym. Use of the details published in the website imprint or similar information such as postal addresses, phone numbers and fax numbers as well as e-mail addresses by third parties to send information not explicitly requested is not permitted. We expressly reserve the right to take legal steps against the senders of so-called spam e-mails in case of breach of this ban.
