Use, rights of use
Rights of use:
Unless otherwise agreed in individual cases, Fotografiska Berlin grants you a non-exclusive and non-transferable right to use the contents of this website exclusively for your own purposes.
The content may not be distributed, rented or otherwise made available to third parties at any time without our express consent. You may not edit, translate or extract parts of documents provided if you do not (or no longer) have our consent to do so or are not entitled to do so by law (e.g. right to quote).
Regardless of the aforementioned provisions in this chapter of this document, information, brand names and other content from our Internet pages to which you do not own any rights may not be modified, copied, reproduced, sold, rented, used, supplemented or otherwise exploited in any other way without the prior written consent of the rights holder.
Outside of the rights of use expressly granted above, no further rights of any kind whatsoever, in particular to the company name and industrial property rights (patents, utility models, trademarks, etc.), are granted to you, nor is Fotografiska Berlin obligated to grant you any such rights as a result of the use.
Liability and warranty
The availability of the website is only guaranteed within the scope of the technical circumstances. Temporary failures of the service cannot be excluded and do not justify any claims against Fotografiska Berlin.
Services that are not subject to a special contractual relationship (which includes the operation of this website itself) may be discontinued at any time without notice.
Please note that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) has security gaps and cannot be completely protected against access by third parties. In case of doubt, choose the postal route.
Liability for contents:
The contents of our pages were and are carefully created and regularly updated. However, we assume no liability for the accuracy, completeness and timeliness of the content. We are responsible for our own content in accordance with general laws. We are not obliged to monitor third-party content on our pages – in particular guest contributions or comments – or to investigate circumstances that indicate illegal activity (§ 8 – § 10 TMG). We will remove content immediately as soon as we become aware of a concrete violation of the law that justifies removal.
The use of the contents of our website is at your own risk; the information provided is for non-binding general information purposes only and is intended to prepare your actions in a more informed manner, if necessary, but is not a substitute for detailed individual advice for a (contractual) decision.
Therefore, please do not rely on the accuracy, completeness or timeliness of the information if its incorrectness could result in harm to you!
Liability for links:
This Fotografiska Berlin website may contain links to third-party websites (external links). Such websites are the responsibility of their respective operators.
Fotografiska Berlin would like to make interesting information and useful, but occasionally also critical, things accessible to you by means of external links. Sometimes a link serves only as a (prescribed) reference to a source and can therefore not simply be omitted. The setting of external links therefore does not mean that Fotografiska Berlin adopts the content behind the reference or link as its own, especially since the external content is (or can be) subject to permanent change.
Fotografiska Berlin has established an internal process that ensures that when external content is linked for the first time, it is checked within the usual framework to determine whether any legal violations exist. If at this point in time a legal violation is apparent, this link will be marked by a special display (award) – provided that the external link is then set at all (e.g. because we are obliged to do so). However, Fotografiska Berlin has no influence on the current and future design and content of the linked external pages!
Help us to make the Internet as free as possible from legal violations: If you discover one on a page to which we have set an external link, please send us an e-mail or contact us. We assure you to check links to such content again immediately and to remove them if necessary.
Other liability, liability for malware (viruses):
Fotografiska Berlin constantly strives to keep the website and its contents free of malware (viruses). Nevertheless, Fotografiska Berlin cannot guarantee that the website and/or its contents are always free of viruses. Therefore, for your own protection, always ensure that you have adequate and updated security precautions and virus scanners before downloading and opening any content from the Fotografiska Berlin website!
The above provisions do not change the burden of proof to your disadvantage.
