Exclusion of Liability - Disclaimer

Content of the Online Offer

The web team of the Berlin School of Economics and Law (HWR Berlin) accepts no liability whatsoever for the topicality, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims against the web team based on damage, whether of a material or idealistic nature, caused by the use or non-use of the information offered or by the use of faulty or incomplete information, are fully excluded, unless some deliberate or grossly negligent fault on the part of the web team can be shown to be the cause.

All offers are non-binding and are subject to change without notice. The web team of HWR Berlin explicitly reserves the right to alter, extend or delete parts of the page or the entire offer without giving prior notice, or to discontinue the publication, whether temporarily or permanently.

References and Links

In the event of direct or indirect reference to other Internet pages (links) that are beyond the sphere of responsibility of the web team of HWR Berlin, a liability obligation would only be effective in the event that the web team knew of the content of any such page, had the technical possibility to prevent use of the page in the event of its containing illegal content and could be reasonably expected to exercise this option.

The web team of HWR Berlin hereby declares explicitly that at the point in time of the setting of links no illegal content was recognizable on the linked pages. As regards the current and future design, the content and the copyright situation of the linked/associated pages, the web team has no influence on these aspects whatsoever. For this reason it hereby explicitly distances itself from the content of all linked/associated pages that have been altered since the date of linkage. This statement applies to all links and references set within one's own Internet offer as well as to all entries made by others in the guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists set up by the web team. For illegal, faulty or incomplete content and in particular for damage arising from the use or non-use of such information provided, the provider of the page in question bears sole liability, not those who merely refer to such publications in the form of links.

Copyright and Sign Rights

The web team of HWR Berlin makes efforts to ensure that in all publications the copyright to the graphics, soundtracks, video sequences and texts used is observed, to use self-made graphics, soundtracks, video sequences and texts, and to employ licence-free graphics, soundtracks, video sequences and texts.

All safeguarded proprietary names and registered trade marks referred to in the Internet offer and, where applicable, owned by third parties are subject - without limitation - to the provisions of the respective, valid sign-identification laws and the proprietary laws of the registered owner in each case. A simple reference alone must not be taken to imply that the trademarks in question are not protected by third-party entitlements!

The copyright for publications prepared by the web team of HWR Berlin itself remains exclusively with HWR Berlin. Neither duplication nor use of such graphics, soundtracks, video sequences or texts in other electronic or printed publications is permissible without the explicit consent of the web team of HWR Berlin.

Data Protection

If and to the extent that the Internet site offers the possibility of entering personal or business data (e-mail addresses, names, postal addresses), such data is provided by the user on an explicitly voluntary basis. Where both technically possible and reasonable, the use and payment of all services offered is permissible even without the disclosure of such data, or under the disclosure of anonymized data or use of a pseudonym.

Legal Effectiveness of this Disclaimer

This disclaimer must be regarded as a part of the Internet offer from which reference is made to this page. Should any of the individual formulations of this text fail to comply with current law – whether at present, or no longer, or incompletely – the remaining parts of the document shall remain unaffected, as regards their content and validity.

Analytic Services

Our Website uses Piwik. This is a so-called web-analysis service. Piwik uses so-called "cookies", i.e. text files that are stored on your computer and, for our part, permit an analysis to be made of your use of the web pages. To this end the utilization information generated by the cookie (including your shortened IP address) is transmitted to our server and stored for utilization-analytic purposes, allowing us to optimize the web pages. This procedure immediately anonymizes your IP address so that you, as the user, remain anonymous to us. The information generated by the cookie on your use of these web pages is not passed on to a third party. You can prevent the use of the cookies by adjusting your browser-software settings accordingly, though you may then be unable to use all of the functions of this website to the fullest extent.


If you are unhappy about the storage and evaluation of this data from your visit, you can object to the storage and utilization at any time by mouse click. In this case a so-called opt-out-cookie will be placed in your browser, with the result that Piwik will collect no session data whatsoever. Note! If you delete your cookies, this has the effect that the opt-out-cookie will also be deleted and where necessary will have to be activated by you again.
