Data Protection Declaration

Liability for content

The articles accessible via the Web pages are intended purely as general information and not advice in specific cases. We strive to ensure that all information contained on the website and data in accordance with § 7 Section 1 TMG (German Telemedia Act) is accurate and up-to-date. However, we give no guarantee under §§ 8 to 10 TMG regarding the quality of the information and data provided, or that it is accurate, complete or up-to-date. The liability for the content of downloadable information is excluded, providing this is not misinformation issued with willful intent or as a result of gross negligence. This does not affect obligations to remove or block the use of information in accordance with general legislation. However, any liability in this respect can only be accepted with effect from the date on which we become aware of a specific infringement of the law. As soon as we become aware of corresponding infringements of the law we will immediately remove such content.

Liability for Links

We are not responsible for the content of websites accessed via a hyperlink. Exclusive responsibility for the content of linked pages lies with the operators of these linked sites. We expressly do not adopt the contents of these Internet pages as our own and therefore give no guarantee about the availability of the content or that I is accurate and complete. Although we checked the external content when the first connection was made to determine whether this created a potential liability under civil or criminal law, we are under no obligation to continually check the content to which reference is made in our offer for any changes which could establish new grounds for responsibility. Only if we discover that a specific offer to which we have provided a link triggers liability under civil or criminal law, or our attention is brought to this fact by others, will we remove the link to this offer, providing this is technically possible and reasonable for us.

Copyright

The content and works on these Web pages created by the operator of this site are subject to German copyright law. All third party contributions are designated as such. The reproduction, editing, distribution and any form of exploitation outside the boundaries of copyright law shall require the written consent of the respective author or creator. Copies of these pages are permitted only for the private domain and not for commercial purposes.

Data Protection

Our Web site can normally be used without the need to disclose personal data. Insofar as personal data (e.g. name, address or e-mail addresses) is collected on our site this will on a voluntary basis as far as possible. This data will not be forwarded to third parties without your explicit consent.

In conjunction with your access, data which might allow for identification (for example IP address, date, time and name of the requested file) is temporarily stored in our server for data security purposes. No data evaluation is carried out, except for statistical purposes in anonymous form.

Should you order information material from us, we require name, e-mail address as well as details for delivery and billing so we can process and execute your order. This data is stored electronically for the duration of the order processing. Personal data will not be used for other purposes or forwarded to third parties without your express consent.

By submitting your ordering you are agreeing to your personal data being processed as mentioned above, insofar as this is necessary for the purpose of the contract. You can withdraw this consent from us at any time in writing or by e-mail, effective for the future.

Liability Exclusion

As the content provider, CONICA AG is responsible for its “proprietary content” which it makes available for use. Although all content is carefully checked and continually updated, no guarantee can be given that the content is complete, correct and up-to-date. CONICA AG is therefore not liable for losses associated with the use of this content.

A distinction must be drawn between this proprietary content and links to content supplied by other providers through which CONICA AG makes this “external content” available for use.

CONICA AG provides access to the use of this content through the links. It is not responsible for this “external” content since it does not initiate the transmission of the information, select the recipients for the information transmitted nor has it selected or modified the information transmitted. Because of the selected call-up and linking methodology, this “external information” is not automatically stored by CONICA AG on a temporary basis so CONICA AG does not incur any liability for this external content.

However, links are always references to “living” (dynamic) websites of third parties. Although the external content was checked by CONICA AG when the first connection was made to determine whether this created a potential liability for it under civil or criminal law, it is under no obligation to continually check the content to which reference is made in its offer, for any changes which could establish new grounds for responsibility. Only if it discovers that a specific offer to which it has provided a link triggers liability under civil or criminal law, or its attention is brought to this offer by others, will it remove the link to this offer providing this is technically possible and reasonable for it. The question as to whether this is technically possible and reasonable is not influenced by the fact that even after suppression of access from the BASF Construction Chemicals Europe AG homepage, the unlawful or criminal offering can be accessed from other servers.
