1. Contents of Online Presence

HCS Hydraulic Control Systems GmbH, hereinafter referred to as HCS, does not assume any liability for the topicality, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims against HCS concerning damages of material or immaterial nature, which were caused by the use or disuse of the information provided respectively by the use of incorrect and incomplete information, are principally excluded, unless there is a wilfully or grossly negligent fault on the part of HCS. All offers are subject to change and non-binding. HCS expressly reserves the right to change, supplement or delete part of the pages or the entire presence  or to discontinue the publication temporarily or permanently without separate notice.

2. References and Links  

Concerning direct or indirect references to external websites ("links"), which lie outside the responsibility of HCS, a liability obligation would only come into force if HCS had knowledge of the contents and if it were technically possible and feasible to prevent the use in case of illegal contents. HCS therefore expressly declares that the correspondingly linked pages were free of illegal contents at the time of linking. HCS does not have any influence on the present and future design and contents of the linked pages. Thus, HCS hereby expressly dissociates from any contents of any and all linked pages, which were changed after linking. This statement applies to any and all links and references set up within our own internet presence as well as for third-party entries in guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists possibly set up by HCS. The provider of the page referred to, not the party which only refers to the publication in question through links, is solely liable for any illegal, incorrect or incomplete contents and particularly for any damages caused by the use or disuse of information provided in such a way.

3. Copyright and Trademark Rights

HCS endeavours to observe the copyrights of graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts we use in all publications, to use graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts created by ourselves or to fall back on royalty-free graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts. All and any trademarks mentioned in the online presence and possibly protected by third parties are subject without reservation to the regulations of the applicable trademark law and the proprietory rights of the respective registered owners. The mere mention alone does not signify that trademarks are not protected by third-party rights! The copyright for published objects created by HCS itself belongs solely to HCS. Any reproduction or use of such graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without explicit consent by HCS.

4. Data Protection

Should the online presence provide the possibility to enter personal or business data (email addresses, names, addresses), the disclosure of this data by the user is made expressly on a voluntary basis. The use and payment of all services offered is - if technically possible and reasonable - permitted also without entering such data respectively by entering anonymised data or an alias. 

5. Legal Validity of this Liability Disclaimer

Should any parts or certain formulations of this text not, no longer or not completely correspond to the current legal position, all other sections of the document remain unaffected with regard to contents and valitdy.
