Services offered on the NCL Foundation website



1. Content of services offered on the website 


The NCL Foundation cannot be in any way held responsible for the timeliness, accuracy, completeness or quality of the information made available on the website. Liability claims against the NCL Foundation that refer to material or immaterial damage caused by use or non-use of the content presented on the website or by the use of erroneous and incomplete information are fundamentally excluded, provided that there is no evidence that the NCL Foundation has acted with wilful misconduct or gross negligence. All offers are nonbinding and without obligation. The NCL Foundation reserves the right to change, supplement, delete parts of the web pages or the entire website content or to temporarily or permanently discontinue publication without separate announcement.

2. References and links

For direct or indirect references to external internet pages ("links" ) which are not within the area of responsibility of the NCL Foundation, a liability would be effective exclusively when the NCL Foundation has knowledge of the contents and is technically able and when it is reasonable to prevent the use in case content is illegal. Therefore, the NCL Foundation expressly declares that at the time of creating links, the corresponding linked pages were free of illegal content. The NCL Foundation has no influence whatsoever on the current and future design and contents of the linked / connected pages. Therefore, it dissociates itself hereby expressly from all content of all linked / connected pages which were changed after the link was set. This statement applies to all links set within its own website and references, as well as to foreign entries in guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists of the NCL Foundation. As for illegal, incorrect or incomplete content, and especially for damages resulting from the use or disuse of such information, liability lies solely with the provider of the page to which the reference was made, not the one who has linked to these pages.

3. Copyright and trademark law 

In all publications, the NCL-Foundation strives to regard and respect copyrights of graphics used, sound documents, video sequences and texts, to use self-created graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts or to use license-free graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts. All brand names and trademarks mentioned and possibly protected by third parties within the website are the provisions of applicable trademark law and the ownership rights of the respective registered owners. Mere mention does not result in the conclusion that trademarks are not protected by third party rights. The copyright for any material created by the NCL Foundation remains solely with the NCL-Foundation. Any duplication or use of such graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without the express consent of the NCL Foundation.
