1. Intended group of people – scope
This internet portal including all the information, statements, documents, etc. is restricted solely to the users of this internet portal who reside or stay within the territory of the Federal Republic of Germany, and are not subject to any form of restriction whatsoever with regard to the use of this internet portal in terms of nationality or country of origin or residence. The internet portal including all the information, statements, documents, etc. is limited exclusively to the territory of the Federal Republic of Germany and is not intended for the territory of any state outside of Germany.
2. Right to amend
Alois Geiger Söhne GmbH & Co. KG (hereinafter referred to as “Geiger") expressly reserves the right to amend, add or delete parts of the pages or the entire offer without separate notice, or to delete or cancel the publication temporarily or altogether. All offers are subject to change and non-binding.
3. Copyright and trademarks
In all publications Geiger has made every effort to observe copyright laws concerning all graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts that have been employed; to use, wherever possible, Geiger's own graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts; or to employ graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts that are in the public domain. All trade and brand marks that appear in Geiger's internet content and are potentially protected by third parties are subject in full to the terms of the relevant copyright and trademark law and the right of ownership as applied to the registered owner in each case. It must not be assumed, based on the mere mentioning of trademarks, that these are not protected by a third party's rights. The copyright for published material created by Geiger remains the sole property of Geiger. The reproduction or use of such graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed forms of publication without the express consent of Geiger is not permitted.
4. Data protection
The disclosure by the user of any personal or business data (email addresses, names, and addresses) through the internet offer is purely voluntary. Geiger recognizes that any data provided by the users to Geiger is extremely important to the users, and Geiger shall therefore be particularly sensitive in handling such data. Geiger therefore complies with all applicable legal provisions concerning data protection. Geiger agrees not to transmit personal or business data of site users to unauthorized third parties or make it available to third parties in any other way. Third parties are not permitted to send unsolicited information using contact details such as postal addresses, telephone/fax numbers and email addresses published in the imprint or the like. The right of legal actions against the sender of so-called spam mails in case of infringement against this interdiction shall explicitly be reserved.
5. Safety notices
The use of the internet and these websites inevitably involves security risks. Despite the use of state-of-the-art technology and encoding processes Geiger cannot guarantee that confidential data of the user cannot be viewed without authorization during the transmission via the internet and cannot be changed without authorization. Typical risks on the internet at this time include:
Viruses and worms:
programs that self-replicate or are sent over the internet by email and can damage the user’s PC.
programs that, unnoticed by the user, carry out operations compromising the security of a PC, such as intercepting passwords.
Simulation of the reputable origin of emails or internet addresses to prompt users to disclose personal data.
Unauthorized persons invade the PC of the users via the internet.
Man in the middle attack:
Reading, amending and deleting data during the transmission.
Geiger has already initiated a series of security measures for these websites. For these measures to be effective, users must make sure that their systems are sufficiently protected and the data transferred safely, thus preventing any misuse.
6. Choice of law and place of jurisdiction
The law of the Federal Republic of Germany applies. The application of the UN Convention on the International Sale of Goods (CISG) is excluded. Place of fulfillment and place of jurisdiction is – insofar as it is legally permissible – Aschaffenburg.
