Exclusion of liability

Content of the online presence

The author does not accept any liability for the current, correct or full status of the information provided, or for the quality of the same. Liability claims against authors that relate to damage of an immaterial or idea-based nature caused by the use or non-use of the information on offer and/or by the use of erroneous or incomplete information are excluded in principle if there is no proven wilful or grossly negligent culpability on the part of the author.

All offers are non-binding and without obligation. The author expressly reserves the right to modify, supplement or delete parts of the site or the entire presence without special notification or to stop publication temporarily or permanently.


All the materials on ICPMA's website are provided "as is". ICPMA makes no warranties, may it be expressed or implied. Furthermore, ICPMA does not make any representations concerning the accuracy or reliability of the use of the materials on its website or otherwise relating to such materials or any sites linked to this website.

Referrals and external links

Despite careful control of the contents ICPMA does not accept liability for the content of external links or for the content of this site. The operators of linked sites hold exclusive liability for the content of these linked sites.

In the case of direct or indirect referrals to third-party websites (‘hyperlinks’) that are not within the scope of responsibility of ICPMA, a liability obligation would only come into force if ICPMA is aware of the contents and it would be technically possible or reasonable for ICPMA to prevent use in the case of illegal content. To be clear, ICPMA has not reviewed all of the sites linked to its website and is not responsible for the contents of any such linked site. The presence of any link does not imply endorsement by ICPMA of the site. The use of any linked website is at the user’s own risk.

The author hereby expressly declares that no illegal content was visible on the linked sites when the link was created. ICPMA has no influence on the current and future design, the content or the authorship of the linked/connected sites that are changed after the link is created. For that reason ICPMA hereby expressly distances itself from the contents of all linked/connected sites that are changed after the link is created. This statement is valid for all links and referrals within its own internet presence and for third-party entries in objects established by ICPMA such as guest books, discussion forums, link directories, mailing lists and all other forms of data bases where external write access is possible to the content. The provider of the linked site holds sole liability for illegal, erroneous or incomplete contents and in particular for damage caused as a result of the use or non-use of information presented in this way. Parties that only refer to the relevant publication via links are not liable.

Copyright and trademark law

ICPMA will endeavour to take or procure the copyrights of the images, graphics, sound documents, video sequences and text into account in all publications and to use images, graphics, sound documents, video sequences and text that it has created or to use licence-free graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts.

All brands and trademarks named within the internet presence that may be protected by third-party rights are subject without restriction to the conditions in the relevant valid trademark law and the titles of the registered owners. The mere naming does not allow the conclusion that trademarks are not protected by third-party rights.

The copyright for published objects that were created by ICPMA remains solely with ICPMA. The duplication or use of such graphics, sound documents, video sequences and text in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without the express approval of the ICPMA.

Revisions and Errata

The materials appearing on this website may include technical, typographical, or photographic errors. ICPMA will not promise that any of the materials on this website are accurate, complete, or current. ICPMA may change the materials contained on its website at any time without notice but does not make any commitment to update the materials.


ICPMA will not be hold accountable for any damages that will arise with the use or inability to use the materials on ICPMA’s website, even if ICPMA or an authorized representative has been notified, orally or written, of the possibility of such damage. Some jurisdiction does not allow limitations on implied warranties or limitations of liability for incidental damages, these limitations may not apply to you.

Legal validity of this exclusion of liability

This exclusion of liability must be considered part of the Internet presence from which this page is linked. Where sections or individual formulations in this text do not comply, no longer comply or do not fully comply with the valid legal situation then the remaining parts of the document will remain unaffected in their content and their validity.

In the event of defects (e.g. with regard to content or a possible violation of copyright) ICPMA request prior contact to avoid unnecessary legal disputes and costs so that the discrepancies can be resolved amicably and informally where possible. Expenses for a legal warning notice will be rejected as unfounded in the context of the legal obligation to mitigate damages if no contact is made in advance via the email address pointing out possible defects
