Bundesdruckerei does not assume any warranty regarding the correctness, quality and completeness of the information presented. Any liability claims against the supplier in conjunction with damage, whether tangible or intangible, caused by the use or non-use of the information presented or use of parts of or incorrect information, are generally ruled out unless Bundesdruckerei can be proven to have acted negligently or with intent. All offerings are non-binding. We expressly reserve the right to amend, alter or delete the offering or pages without special mention or to temporarily or permanently discontinue publications.

In the case of indirect or direct references to external websites (links) that are outside Bundesdruckerei's scope of responsibility, a liability obligation will come into effect in the event that Bundesdruckerei was aware of the contents and it would have been technically reasonable and possible for Bundesdruckerei to prevent the use of such unlawful contents. The linked pages were free of illegal content at the time the link was set; this was expressly declared. There is no possibility to influence the current and future designs or contents of linked pages. Bundesdruckerei therefore expressly distances itself from the contents of all linked pages that were amended after the links were set. The foregoing applies to all references and links, as well as external entries, forums and mailing lists within its own Internet offering. The supplier of the page to which the link referred is solely responsible for any damage that results from using such page.
