Business Liability

CONSULEGIS is an international network of independent law firms, in-house lawyers and related professional advisors. According to its Articles of Association the task of CONSULEGIS is the support of the professional activities of its members. Herewith, it is understood that CONSULEGIS itself shall take on no clients, and shall give no advice and offer no services directly to the public. Therefore, any kind of business relation based on legal advice, legal consultation and/or legal representation will solely become effective between the client and the respective individual member law firm. Neither CONSULEGIS as such nor any other member firm of CONSULEGIS can be held liable for any reason whatsoever occurring before, during or after the relation between a client and the specific member law firm.

Limitation of liability for internal content

We do not assume any liability for the timeliness, completeness or accuracy of any of the pages on our site.

Pursuant to section 7, para. 1 of the TMG (Telemediengesetz – Tele Media Act by German law), we as service providers are liable for our own content on these pages in accordance with general laws. However, pursuant to sections 8 to 10 of the TMG, we as service providers are not under obligation to monitor external information provided or stored on our website. Once we have become aware of a specific infringement of the law, we will immediately remove the content in question. Any liability concerning this matter can only be assumed from the point in time at which the infringement becomes known to us.

Limitation of liability for external links

Our website contains links to the websites of third parties (“external links”). These contents and links are provided solely for convenience and information purposes. CONSULEGIS has no control over, does not assume any responsibility for and makes no warranties as to any third party content or websites, including, but not limited to, the accuracy, subject matter, quality or timeliness of these websites. In all cases, the provider of information of the linked websites is liable for the content and accuracy of the information provided.

Copyright

The content and works published on this website are governed by the copyright laws of Germany. Any duplication, processing, distribution or any form of utilisation beyond the scope of copyright law shall require the prior written consent of the author or authors in question.

Data protection

A visit to our website can result in the storage on our server of information about the access (date, time, page accessed). This does not represent any analysis of personal data (e.g., name, address or e-mail address). If personal data are collected, this only occurs – to the extent possible – with the prior consent of the user of the website. Any forwarding of the data to third parties without the express consent of the user shall not take place.

We would like to expressly point out that the transmission of data via the Internet (e.g., by e-mail) may be inherently insecure and can offer security vulnerabilities. Although “guaranteed security” does not exist either on or off the Internet, CONSULEGIS makes commercially reasonable efforts to make the collection and security of such information consistent with applicable laws and regulations. However, it is therefore impossible to safeguard the data completely against access by third parties. We cannot assume any liability for damages arising as a result of such security vulnerabilities.

The use by third parties of all published contact details for the purpose of advertising is expressly excluded. We reserve the right to take legal steps in the case of the unsolicited sending of advertising information; e.g., by means of spam mail.

To the fullest extent permitted by law, CONSULEGIS or any of its directors, employees or agents (the “CONSUELGIS Parties”) shall have in no event any liability to any person whatsoever for any direct or indirect loss, liability, cost, claim, expense or damage of any kind, whether in contract or in tort, including negligence, or otherwise, arising out of or associated with the use of the website, even if a party has been advised of the possibility of such damages. In particular the CONSULEGIS Parties are not liable for the disclosure of data to third parties or your internet service provider as a result of using the website.

Use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, California, 94043 USA (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files, which are saved on your computer and which make it possible to analyse how you have used the website. Normally, the information gathered by the cookie about your use of this website will be transferred to and stored on a Google server in the USA. Where the anonymisation of the IP address is activated on this website, Google will first shorten your IP address within one of the Member States of the European Union or the European Economic Area. In exceptional cases, the complete IP address will be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate the use of the website in order to produce reports on the website activity and render other services related to the use of the website and the internet. The IP addresses transferred from your browser by way of Google Analytics will not be combined with other data by Google. You can use the settings in your browser software to prevent cookies from being saved; please note, however, that disabling cookies may mean that you cannot use all the functions of this website to the full extent. In addition, you can prevent both the data gathered by the cookie and the data related to your use of the website (including your IP address) from being transferred to and used by Google via this link:

In light of discussions on the use of Analysetools with full IP addresses, we would like to point out that this website uses Google Analytics with the add-on “_anonymizelp()” and that IP addresses are therefore only analysed in their abbreviated form in order to prevent them from being linked to a particular individual.
