This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies" which are text files placed on your computer to help analyze how you use our website. As a rule, the information generated by such cookie about your use of our website will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers located in the United States of America. In the event you activate the IP anonymization option on this website, Google will shorten your IP address prior to its transmission within member states of the European Union or in other states which acceded to the treaty on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will your complete IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the United States and shortened there. Google, on behalf of the operator of this website, will make use of this information to analyze your usage of this website, to prepare reports on website activity and to provide vis-à-vis the operator of this website further services in connection with the usage of this website and of the internet. Google will not associate your IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics with any other data held by Google. You may prevent the storage of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser; however, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

For any further information please refer to http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en or http://www.google.com/intl/en/analytics/privacyoverview.html (general information about Google Analytics and data protection). Here, we should like to point out that on this website Google Analytics was extended by the code "gat._anonymizeIp();" to ensure an anonymized compilation of IP addresses (so-called "IP masking").
Contents of Our Online Offer
FRIATEC AG reserves the right not to be responsible for the topicality, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims against FRIATEC AG originating in any material or intellectual damage caused by the use or non-use of any information provided, including any use of information which is incomplete or incorrect, are therefore ruled out in general, to the extent FRIATEC AG may provably not be held liable for acts committed intentionally or by gross negligence.
All offers are not-binding and without obligation. FRIATEC AG hereby explicitly states that it reserves the right to modify, complete, delete or temporarily or finally discontinue parts of the publication or the entire publication without separate announcement.
Referrals and Links
FRIATEC AG will assume liability for direct or indirect referrals and/or links to third-party websites ("hyperlinks") which go beyond its sphere of influence solely in such cases in which FRIATEC AG had full knowledge of the illegal contents published therein and FRIATEC AG is technically in the position, and may reasonably be expected, to prevent visitors of its website from viewing such illegal contents.
FRIATEC AG hereby explicitly states that it could not identify any illegal contents on the websites to be linked at the point of time of its linking third-party websites. FRIATEC AG is not in the position to influence the current or future design, the contents or the authorship of the websites linked/referred to. In consequence, FRIATEC AG hereby explicitly distances itself from any contents of any websites linked/referred to and modified after FRIATEC AG’s linking them. The foregoing statement refers to any links and referrals made within FRIATEC AG’s own internet presence as well as to any third-party entries in guest books, discussion boards and mailing lists set up by FRIATEC AG. Solely the party offering the website linked/referred to by FRIATEC AG – and not the party only referring to the relevant online publication through links – may be held liable for any illegal, incorrect or incomplete contents and in particular for any damage arising from the use or non-use of the information so presented.
Copyright and Identification Right
FRIATEC AG makes every effort to observe any copyrights pertaining to any used diagrams, audio documents, video sequences and texts, to use diagrams, audio documents, video sequences and texts it has created itself, or to fall back on diagrams, audio documents, video sequences and texts which are not subject to licenses in all of its publications.
All brands and trademarks mentioned within FRIATEC AG’s internet offer and, as the case may be, protected by (a) third party/parties are without limitation subject to the provisions of the relevant applicable copyright/identification act and the property rights of the relevant registered proprietor. The mere indication of a brand or trademark alone does not give rise to the conclusion that such brand or trademark is not protected by third-party rights!
The copyright for any published material created by FRIATEC AG remains with FRIATEC AG exclusively. Any duplication or use of such diagrams, audio documents, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without FRIATEC AG’s explicit approval.
Legal Validity of the Present Disclaimer
This disclaimer is to be regarded as part of the internet publication which you were referred from. If sections or individual formulations of this text do – be it in full or in part – not or no longer comply with prevailing law, such non-compliance will not affect the content or validity of the remaining sections of this document.
Provision of Information and Revocation
We shall be pleased to respond at any time to your inquiries about any personally identifiable data we have stored free of charge. You may have your data corrected, blocked or deleted. You may revoke your consent to our processing your personally identifiable data at any time with future effect.
