Liability for contents
The contents of our websites have been compiled with great care. However, Berlin Tourismus & Kongress GmbH does not guarantee that the information provided is up-to-date, accurate and complete. The use of the content on our website is at the user's own risk. The mere use of this website does not establish a contractual relationship between the user and us; liability claims against us, whatever their nature, arising from the mere use or disuse of the presented information, or by the use of incorrect and/or incomplete information, are strictly excluded.
According to § 7(1) of the German Telemedia Act (Telemediengesetz – TMG), as a service provider we are responsible for our own content on these sites in accordance with the general legislation. However, we are not required to monitor transmitted or stored third-party information or to investigate circumstances that indicate illegal activity (§§ 8-10 TMG). As soon as we become aware of content that suggests an illegal activity, we will remove it immediately from our website. However, liability in this regard is only possible from the moment that knowledge of the specific breach of law is obtained. Contributions identified by name reflect the opinion of the author and not necessarily the opinion of the provider.
Liability for links
Our website contains links to external third-party sites over whose content we have no control. Therefore, we cannot accept any responsibility for these external contents. The respective provider or operator of the linked website is always responsible for such content. The linked sites were checked for possible legal violations at the time the links were created. Unlawful contents were not recognisable at the time the sites were linked. A permanent control of the contents of linked websites is not reasonable without concrete evidence of an infringement. Upon becoming aware of legal violations, we shall immediately remove such links.
The content created by us on these sites (articles, graphics, etc.) and layout of this website are subject to German copyright and ancillary copyright law. Third-party contributions are identified as such. Any type of use not permitted under German copyright and ancillary copyright law requires prior written approval by us or by the respective copyright holder (author/creator). This applies in particular to copying, adaptation, distribution, translation, storage, processing and/or reproduction of contents in databases or other electronic media and systems. The reproduction of individual content or the website as a whole is only allowed for private use, and not for commercial use. The use of texts/articles in print form shall be made solely in the form of a quote with indication of the source, with a reference to the portal and portal operator. If textual content is published as a quote on other websites, the source shall be indicated in the form of a follow link to the relevant article.
