1. Scope of Application

This legal notice applies to the website identified by this legal notice and which can be reached via the URL

2. Website Contents

The IRTG “Baltic Peripeties” assumes no liability for the up-to-datedness, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims, which are related to material or idealistic damages and were caused by the use or non-use of the provided information or by the use of incorrect and incomplete information, are generally excluded as long as there is no proof of negligence or gross negligence on our behalf. All of the information is subject to change and non-binding. The IRTG “Baltic Peripeties” explicitly reserves the right to change, complement or delete parts of the pages or all of the provided information without special notice, or to temporarily or definitively discontinue publication. According to §§ 8 to 10 TMG, we as a service provider are not obliged to monitor transmitted or stored third-party information or to research circumstances that indicate illegal activity. Obligations to remove or block the use of information according to general laws remain unaffected. As soon as we become aware of such violations, we will remove this content immediately.

3. Referrals and Links

Liability will only be assumed for direct or indirect referrals to external websites (‘Hyperlinks’) that lay beyond the boundaries of responsibility of the IRTG “Baltic Peripeties”, if the author knew about the content and it would have been technically possible and acceptable for him/her to avoid their use due to unlawful content. The linked pages were checked for possible legal violations at the time of linking. No illegal content was evident at the time of linking. A permanent control of the content of the linked pages is not reasonable without concrete evidence of an infringement. Therefore, we hereby expressly renounce responsibility for the entire content of any of the linked pages that were changed after they had been linked. As soon as we become aware of legal violations, we will remove such links immediately.

The duplication, processing, distribution and any kind of use beyond the limits of copyright law require the written consent of the respective author or creator. Downloads and copies of this page are only permitted for private, non-commercial use. As far as the content on this page was not created by the site operator, the copyrights of third parties are respected. In particular contents of third parties these are marked as such.

5. Legal Effectiveness of this Disclaimer

This disclaimer is to be considered a component of the webpages. If sections or individual sentences of this text do not, no longer, or do not entirely correspond to the valid laws, the contents and validity of the remaining parts of the document remain unaffected.
