We make every effort to keep the information on our Web site current, but accept no liability whatsoever for the content provided. Pursuant to §7 par. 1 of TMG (German Tele-Media Act), the law limits our responsibility as a service provider to our own content on these Web pages. According to §§8 to 10 of TMG, we are not obligated to monitor third party information provided or stored on our Web site.

Liability for Links

With the judgement of 12th May 1998 - 312 O 85/98 - "Liability for links" the district court in Hamburg decided that references to outside Internet-pages ("links") are if necessary within the area of responsibility of the author. According to the district court this can only be avoided if the author dissociates itself expressly from all contents of all linked/referenced pages.

The internet appearance of the WAL Mess- und Regelsysteme GmbH contains links to outside Internet-pages. The WAL Mess- und Regelsysteme GmbH emphasises expressly that they have no influence on the design and content of the linked pages. The WAL Mess- und Regelsysteme GmbH does not take over any guarantee for the topicality, the correctness, completeness or quality of the information, made available. Therefore the WAL Mess- und Regelsysteme GmbH dissociates itself expressly from all contents of all linked/referenced pages. This statement applies to all links and references to outside internet-pages and their contents, set within the own internet offer.
