1. Right to change the contents at any time
We expressly reserve the right to change, supplement, delete parts of the pages of www.gva-leistungselektronik.de, gva-leistungelelkronik.com und igct.de (called GVA in the following) or the entire service range in whole or in part without separate announcement or to discontinue publication temporarily or for good.
2. References and links
a) In a judgement dated 12 May 1998 (File No. 312 O 85/98 – “Liability for Hyperlinks“), the Hamburg Provincial Court decided that, by placing a hyperlink (= direct or indirect reference to external websites), the provider of a website bears, under appropriate circumstances, a joint responsibility for the contents of the linked external website. The court decided that this can only be counteracted by expressly distancing oneself from the contents of the linked external website. We herewith expressly distance ourselves from all linked external websites. We expressly disclaim any liability for these linked external websites. For the contents of a linked external website and particularly for damage which occurs by the use or non-use of information presented on such external websites, only the provider or author himself can be held liable, not we who established a link to these websites.
b) The Local Court Berlin Tiergarten decided on 30 June 1997 (File No. 260 DS 857/96) that liability is likewise excluded, if the external website, which the provider who placed the link or the defendant makes reference to, was legally harmless at the time of placing the hyperlink and was changed subsequently without the knowledge of the provider who placed the link or the defendant, in a way which is relevant for prosecution. According to this decision, the provider who places the link or the defendant is insofar not obliged to continuously check the external websites which he refers to. As soon as any legal infringements on external websites, which we refer to in hyperlinks, become known, we will immediately remove such hyperlinks from our website. We herewith expressly declare that at the time of placing the link to an external website, no illegal contents were perceptible on the linked sites. We do not have any influence whatsoever on the current and future layout, contents or authorship of the linked external websites. For this reason, we herewith expressly distance ourselves from all contents of all linked external websites, which were changed after placing the link.
c) The above statements shall apply to all hyperlinks and references placed within our current internet presentation on the pages of GVA and to all entries made by third persons in visitors’ books, discussion groups, link lists, mailing lists and in any other type of database established by us, which provide access to the contents of external websites.
