General

The following gives a simple overview of what happens to your personal information when you visit our website. Personal information is any data with which you could be personally identified. Detailed information on the subject of data protection can be found in our privacy policy found below.

Content

The author makes no warranty whatsoever for the actuality, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Claims for liability against the author, based on material or intangible damages, caused by the usage or non-usage of the information presented or through the usage or non-usage of faulty or incomplete information are categorically excluded, insofar as there is no evidence of wilful intent or gross negligence. All content is subject to change and non-binding. The author explicitly reserves the right to change, amend, and delete parts of the pages or the complete content without special notice or to temporarily or permanently stop publication.

References and links/ Integration of services and contents of third parties

For direct or indirect references to external websites („links“), which lie outside the area of responsibility of the author, an obligation of liability would only occur in the case of the author having knowledge of the content and that it would be technically possible and reasonable for him to prevent usage in the case of illegal content. The author hereby declares explicitly that at the point in time at which the link was created, the relevant linked pages were free of illegal content. The author has no influence whatsoever on the actual and future design, content or authorship of the linked/connected pages. Therefore, the author explicitly disassociates himself from all content of all linked/connected pages which have been changed since the link was created. This statement is valid for all links and references made within the own internet content, as well as for external contributions to guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists set up by the author.

The liability for illegal, faulty or incomplete content and in particular for damages caused by the usage or non-usage of such information presented there is only incurred by the provider of the pages to which reference was made, and not by he who only referred to the relevant publication in the form of links.

Our offer occasionally includes content, services and services of other providers. These are, for example, maps provided by Google Maps, videos from YouTube as well as graphics and images from other websites. In order for these data to be accessed and displayed in the user’s browser, the transmission of the IP address is absolutely necessary. The providers (hereinafter referred to as “third-party provider”) thus perceive the IP address of the respective user.
Although we endeavor to use only third-party providers who only need the IP address to deliver content, we have no control over whether the IP address may be stored. This process is used in the case, inter alia, statistical purposes. If we are aware that the IP address is being stored, we will inform our users.

 

Copyright and trademark rights

The author makes every effort in all publications to respect the copyright of graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts used therein, to use graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts which he has created himself or to resort to license-free graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts. All images from the University Clinic in the banner are the exclusive property of Universitätsklinikum Frankfurt. All images may not be reproduced, copied, downloaded, saved to your computer, transmitted in any form or manipulated without the written permission of the VRC.

All those trademarks and brands which are referred to within the internet content, which may be registered as such by third parties, are subject to the relevant valid trademark law and rights of ownership of the relevant registered proprietors. One should not come to the conclusion that trademarks are not protected by third party rights solely on the basis of simple naming.

The copyright for published objects which have been created by the author himself remains with the author of the pages. Duplication or usage of such graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications is not allowed without explicit authorization by the author.

If you contact us via the online form or by e-mail, we will save the information you have provided in order to answer your request and to ask possible follow-up questions.

The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies to ensure an optimized service provided free of technical errors. If other cookies (such as those used to analyze your surfing behavior) are also stored, they will be treated separately in this privacy policy.

Data Economy

Personal data is stored according to the principles of data avoidance and data economy only as long as required or required by law (legal storage period). If the purpose of the information collected is omitted or the storage period ends, we block or delete the data.

Information, blocking, deletion

In order to ensure that our privacy policy always complies with current legal requirements, we reserve the right to make changes at any time. This also applies in the event that the privacy policy has to be adapted due to new or revised services, for example new services. The new privacy policy will then take effect on your next visit to our offer.
