2. Legal notes

These legal notes are to be seen as part of the internet presence “palaisquartier.de/.com” belonging to PalaisQuartier GmbH & Co. KG from which reference has been made to this page. If parts or single definitions of this text should not correspond, no longer correspond or not completely correspond to the current legal position, the remaining parts of the document remain unaffected thereby in their content and their validity. The use of the internet presence “palaisquartier.de/.com” of PalaisQuartier GmbH & Co. KG is done on the assumption that the user accepts the following conditions and notes as follows without changes.

2.1 Disclaimer / Exclusion of liability

This internet presence has been set up by the PalaisQuartier GmbH & Co. KG with the greatest possible care. The PalaisQuartier GmbH & Co. KG cannot however take over any guarantee for the currency, the correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. The contents of this internet presence of PalaisQuartier GmbH & Co. KG do not form part of any contractual offer.

The internet presence contains links to external internet pages, on the contents of which the PalaisQuartier GmbH & Co. KG has no influence. For this reason the PalaisQuartier GmbH & Co. KG cannot take over any guarantee for the content of these outside pages. For the contents of the linked pages the provider in each case is responsible. The pages were examined at the time of linking for possible evident breaches of the law; but a permanent check of linked pages is neither practically feasible nor does it make sense without specific reference points. When breaches of the law become known the PalaisQuartier GmbH & Co. KG will remove these links without delay. On this point PalaisQuartier GmbH & Co. KG asks users of the internet presence for their help.

For the information and services provided by PalaisQuartier GmbH & Co. KG the following limitations of liability apply:

• Damages and other liability claims are ruled out if there has been no intention or gross negligence by PalaisQuartier GmbH & Co. KG or the following specific case of simple negligence exists.
• In the case of simple negligence PalaisQuartier GmbH is only liable if a duty is breached, the keeping of which is of particular importance for the purpose of the contract to be achieved (“a major contractual duty”) and only limited to the predictable damage typical for this kind of contact.

Where the liability of PalaisQuartier GmbH & Co. KG is ruled out, restricted or limited this applies also for the personal liability of its staff, employees, freelancers, representatives and agents.

In cases of initial impossibility to perform, PalaisQuartier GmbH & Co. KG is also only liable if the obstruction to its performance was known to it or its lack of knowledge thereof was caused by gross negligence.

The period allowed under the statute of limitations for claims for damages against PalaisQuartier GmbH & Co. KG amounts to one year calculated from the legal start of the statute of liability period.

The above exclusions of liability restrictions and limitations do not apply for claims under the Product Liability Act and for loss or damage from injury to life, the body or health.

The user is bound to notify any damage under the definition of the above rulings on liability without delay in writing to PalaisQuartier GmbH & Co. KG or to have them recorded by PalaisQuartier GmbH & Co. KG, so that PalaisQuartier GmbH & Co. KG is informed at the earliest possible time and can possibly limit the damage together with the user.

2.2 Copyright, brand and distinguishing marks

3.1 Storage of access data

For every access of a user to the internet presence of PalaisQuartier GmbH & Co. KG and with every calling-up of a file, access data about this process are saved in a record file on the server of the provider DomainFactory. Each data record consists of:

The completion of the statistic evaluations and/or the rectification of any errors is followed by the deletion of the data.

3.2 Collection and processing of data

If within our internet offers the possibility of entering personal or business data (names, e-mail addresses, postal addresses) exists, e.g. for ordering a newsletter, then the providing of these data by the user is done explicitly on a voluntary basis. With the sending of your data you declare yourself to be in agreement that we contact you in accordance with the purpose concerned by e-mail, post or telephone. The giving of a telephone number can serve a purpose depending on the matter concerned. Here too your data are treated confidentially and within the guidelines of the German Data Protection Act.

Passing of these data to others, such as for example service companies or collaborating firms, takes place only if the latter are appointed by us to carry out tasks corresponding to the purpose concerned. These third parties may not use the data for other purposes. Besides this they are bound to treat the data in accordance with these notes on data protection and the provisions of the Data Protection Act. Any passing of data to others going beyond this will not be done without the consent of the person affected.

Users have the right to obtain information about the personal data stored about them upon application and free of charge.

In addition users can at any time revoke their consent for the storage of data and arrange for the alteration or deletion of their data. In this case please write us an e-mail addressed to: .(Javascript muss aktiviert sein, um diese E-Mail-Adresse zu sehen)..

3.3 Cookies

On our pages – as with many other websites – cookies are used. Thus for example when our internet pages are called up, a cookie is deposited in the computer of the user. These are session cookies for that use, which are only stored for the duration of the session concerned.
Most internet browsers are so adjusted that they automatically accept cookies. You can deactivate the storage of cookies. We recommend to you however that the cookie function be left activated, since an extensive use of our pages can otherwise be impossible under certain circumstances.

3.4 Links to other internet pages

In our websites, links to other internet pages can be contained to which the above data protection declaration does not extend however. We have no influence on whether their operators keep to the provisions of the Data Protection Act. Please see also Point 2: “Legal Notes” on this.

3.5 Sundries
