1.Website contents

The editorial department assumes no liability for the topicality, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Any liability claims against the editorial department, which refer to material or non-material damage, and which may be caused by the usage or non-usage of the information provided, or, respectively, by the usage of any incorrect or incomplete information, are generally excluded unless in cases of evidenced or gross negligence on the part of the webmasters. All offers are non-binding and without obligation. The editorial department reserves the right to modify, append or delete parts or the complete online content without prior notice, or to cancel the publication temporarily or permanently.

2. References and links 

With regard to direct or indirect references to third-party websites (“links”) that are beyond the scope of the responsibility, a liability obligation only applies if the contents of such pages was known to the webmasters, and if it is reasonable and technically possible for the webmasters to prevent their use in the case of illegal content.
The editorial department herewith explicitly declares that at the time of creating the link, no unlawful content could be detected on the pages linked. The editorial department has no influence on the current and future design, content or copyright of the linked/hyperlinked pages. For this reason, it hereby expressly distances itself from the contents of all linked/hyperlinked pages that have been modified since the link was created. This declaration applies to all links and references within this website, as well as for postings and outside contributions to the discussion forums, link directories, mailing lists and all other forms of databases which the webmasters have created and in which the content can be modified externally. Please notify the webmasters about any web page that can be accessed from the Ruhr West University of Applied Sciences (HRW) site with content that gives grounds for complaint.
Ruhr West University of Applied Sciences (HRW) accepts no responsibility for external hyperlinks, which were not created by Ruhr West University of Applied Sciences (HRW), but by linked third-party providers.

Where illegal, erroneous or incomplete content is concerned, especially damages arising from the usage or non-usage of the information offered, the provider of the page to which the reference is made shall be solely liable, and not the party who merely refers to the respective publications via links.
