1. Limited liability
The contents of this website are and will be created with the utmost care. However, USG GmbH will assume no responsibility for the correctness, completeness and topicality of the contents provided. Use of the contents of the website is at the user’s own risk. Contents attributed to a certain author only reflect the author’s opinion and not necessarily the opinion of USG GmbH. By merely using the website of USG GmbH, no contract will be made between the user and USG GmbH.
2. External links
This website contains links to other websites of third parties ("external links"). Such websites are subject to their respective owners. At the time the external links were created, USG GmbH checked those links to external websites for possible legal violations. At that time, no legal violations were found. USG GmbH has no influence on the current and future design and content of the external links. Linking external pages to their website does not imply that USG GmbH accepts or approves the contents of the external links. USG GmbH cannot reasonably be expected to permanently check the external links, unless there are specific indications of any legal violations. In the event of known legal violations, however, such external links will be deleted immediately.

4. Data Protection
By visiting the website of USG GmbH, certain access information (date, time, pages accessed) may be saved on the server. These data are anonymous and cannot be associated with any particular person. They are used exclusively for statistical purposes. They are not disclosed to any third parties, neither for commercial nor for non-commercial purposes. The provider expressly points out that data transfer on the Internet (e.g. communication by email) is exposed to safety gaps and cannot not always be completely protected against access by third parties. It is expressly undesired to use contact data from our Legal Information page for purposes of soliciting or advertising, unless USG GmbH has given their previous written consent or a business relationship already exists.

To avoid the costs of a legal dispute you should always contact us by ordinary mail in case of incomplete information, incidents involving competition law or similar problems. In the absence of any such preceding contact, financial claims relating to legal cautions will be rejected as being inadmissible in the context of the legal obligation to minimise damages.
