§ 6 Copyright and database rights

  1. All content included in or provided through the provider of the website, such as text, graphics, logos, button icons, images, audio clips, video clips, PDF-documents, digital downloads, and data compilations, is the property of the provider or of a third party that provides the content to or through the site and is protected by German copyright and database right laws.
  2. All content included in or provided through any of the provider’s online services is the provider’s exclusive property and is protected by German copyright and database right laws. All content is also licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-Non-Derivate Works 4.0 International License.
  3. You may not systematically extract and/or re-use parts of the website provider’s service without the provider’s written consent. In particular, you may not use any data mining, robots, or similar data gathering and extraction programs to extract (whether once or many times) to re-use any substantial parts of any services from the provider without the provider’s explicit written consent. You may also not create and/or publish your own database containing any substantial parts of any service provided by the website provider without the provider’s written consent.

All patents and trademarks registered on the provider are also applicable to all services and other website providers’ products.

The respective patents or trademarks may be operated under one or more patents and trademarks.

§ 8 Claims from intellectual property rights

The website provider respects the intellectual property rights of third parties.

If you believe that your intellectual property rights have been used in a way that gives rise to a fear of infringement, please immediately contact help@smartbusinessredefined.com.

§ 9 Liability

  1. We always try to ensure that the provider’s services are available without interruptions and that transmissions are free of errors. However, due to the nature of the Internet, this cannot be guaranteed. Also, your access to the provider’s services may be interrupted or limited from time to time to allow for repairs, system maintenance, or the implementation of new functionalities. We try to limit the frequency and duration of any such temporary interruptions or limitations.
  2. The website provider is liable without limitation if the cause of damage is based on an intentional or grossly negligent breach of duty by the website provider or a legal representative or vicarious agent of the provider.
  3. Furthermore, the operator is liable for the slightly negligent violation of essential obligations. Essential obligations include those whose violation endangers the achievement of the purpose of the contract or whose fulfillment makes the proper execution of the contract possible in the first place and on whose compliance you regularly rely. In this case, however, the provider is only liable for the foreseeable, contract-typical damage. The provider is not liable for the slightly negligent violation of other obligations than those mentioned in the former sentences.
  4. The above limitations of liability do not apply to injury to life and health or for a defect after assuming a guarantee for the product’s quality and fraudulently concealed defects. Liability under the Product Liability Act shall remain unaffected.
  5. If the operator’s liability is excluded or limited, this also applies to employees, representatives, and agents’ personal liability.

§ 10 Privacy

  1. Data and information of visitors and users (date, time, accessed page) about the access can be stored on the server. We point out that – without consent – no personal data (e.g., name, address, or e-mail address) will be stored.
  2. If personal data is collected, we commit ourselves to obtain the user’s prior consent of the website. We commit ourselves not to pass on any data to third parties unless the visitor or user gives his prior consent.
  3. We point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g., by e-mail) can have security gaps. Accordingly, an error-free and trouble-free protection of third-party data cannot be fully guaranteed. In this respect, our liability is excluded.
  4. Third parties are not authorized to use contact data for commercial activities unless there has been prior written consent of the provider to the persons concerned.
  5. The user has the right to obtain information. You have the right at any time to receive complete information free of charge from us about the data stock concerning you.
  6. Furthermore, the user has the right to correct/deletion of data/restriction of the processing.
  7. Further details are given separately in the privacy policy.

§ 11 Cookies

  1. Cookies may be used to display products and services. Cookies are small text files that are stored locally in the cache of the visitor’s Internet browser.
  2. Many websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a cookie ID, which is the unique identification number for the cookie consisting of a string of characters that can be used to assign Internet pages and servers to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the Internet pages and servers to distinguish the individual browser of the person concerned from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recognized and identified by the unique cookie ID.
  3. The use of cookies can provide users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without cookies.
  4. The provider would like to point out that some of these cookies are transferred from the website server to your computer system, whereby these are mostly termed session-related cookies. Session-related cookies are characterized by the fact that they are automatically deleted from your hard drive at the end of the browser session. Other cookies remain on your computer system and enable us to recognize your computer system during your next visit (permanent cookies).
  5. You can object to the storage of cookies. For this purpose, a consent manager is available to you that allows you to object or accept cookies’ storage.
  6. Of course, you can set up your browser so that no cookies are stored on the hard disk or cookies already stored are deleted. The instructions regarding the prevention and deletion of cookies can be found in your browser or the software developer’s help function.
