Exclusion of liability


Content of internet offers

The contents of this internet offer were researched and implemented with the utmost care. As the publisher of this internet offer, iMOVE at the Federal Institute of Vocational Education and Training, assumes no liability for the accuracy, completeness and relevance or topicality of information provided. Any and all liability on the part of the publisher or of co-workers and employees of iMOVE at the Federal Institute of Vocational Education and Training for any and all damages which may incur as a result of direct or indirect use of information provided is fundamentally excluded. All offers are non-binding and non-obligatory. The publisher reserves the right to delete, expand or change the entire offer or excerpts thereof for a limited period of time without express notification.

Cross-references and links

In the case of direct or indirect links to external websites outside the publisher's realm of responsibility, liability obligations would come into effect if the publisher had been aware of the contents and if it would have been possible and reasonable, technologically, for him to prevent utilization of illicit content. The publisher expressly disassociates himself from illegal content on externally linked websites. The publisher bears no influence whatsoever on the existing or future design or composition of content on linked web pages. Thus, the publisher expressly disassociates himself from all linked web pages, which were changed after the links were set up. This statement applies to all links and references set up within the internet offer itself, as well as external entries set up by the publisher in guest books, cooperation exchanges, discussion forums and mailing lists. Liability for illegal, erroneous or incomplete content and, in particular, for damages which arise as a result of utilization or non-utilization of said information offered, lies solely with the provider of the page referenced and not with the individual who only cross-referenced the respective publication via links. Furthermore, iMOVE reserves the right, in principle, to delete unsuitable external entries in the cooperation exchange at any time.

Copyright and trademark law

In all publications, the publisher strives to observe the copyrights of all graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts used, and to use in-house graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts, or, to resort to graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts that are royalty-free. All trademarks and brand names mentioned within the internet offer and which may be patented by third parties, are subject to the provisions of applicable trademark law and titles of registered owners, without limitation. The simple usage of a brand name does not mean it is not protected by a third party!

Copyright for items created and published by the publisher remains solely with the publisher of said pages. Copying or utilizing these graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without the express approval of the publisher. Copies and downloads for personal, private and non-commercial use are permitted.

Legal effectiveness

The liability and copyright guidelines constitute part of the internet offer, which provided a link or reference to this page. If any part or individual formulation of this text should fail to conform to prevailing legal norms, or no longer conforms or does not fully conform therewith, the content and validity of the rest of the document will not be affected.




The guidelines of the German Accessible Information Technology Ordinance pursuant to the German Disability Discrimination Act are followed during implementation of the internet offer.
