Abstract Background (What & where):


1. Content

The Ministry reserves the right not to be responsible for the topicality, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims regarding damage caused by the use of any information provided, including any kind of information which is incomplete or incorrect, will therefore be rejected. All offers are not-binding and without obligation. Parts of the pages or the complete publication including all offers and information might be extended, changed or partly or completely deleted by the Ministry without separate announcement.

2. Referrals and links

The Ministry is not responsible for any contents linked or referred to from its pages - unless it has full knowledge of illegal contents and would be able to prevent the visitors of his site from viewing those pages. If any damage occurs by the use of information presented there, only the Ministry of the respective pages might be liable, not the one who has linked to these pages. Furthermore the Ministry is not liable for any postings or messages published by users of discussion boards, guestbooks or mailinglists provided on his page.

3. Copyright

The Ministry intended not to use any copyrighted material for the publication or, if not possible, to indicate the copyright of the respective object. The copyright for any material created by the Ministry is reserved. Any duplication or use of objects such as diagrams, sounds or texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without the Ministry's agreement.

4. Privacy policy

If the opportunity for the input of personal or business data (email addresses, name, addresses) is given, the input of these data takes place voluntarily. The use of all offered services is permitted - if and so far technically possible and reasonable - without specification of any personal data or under specification of anonymized data or an alias.
