Legal information


The contents on this website created by SWISSME are subject to German copyright law. Therefore the reproduction, duplication, modification or distribution of the content of this website is not permitted without the express consent of SWISSME. The reproduction, editing, distribution and any kind of use outside the limits of copyright law require the written consent of the respective author or creator.

SWISSME always endeavours to respect the copyrights of others or to use its own or licence-free works. For this reason, third-party contributions are identified as such.


The contents of our website were created with the greatest care. Nevertheless, we cannot guarantee that the contents are correct, complete and up-to-date.

As a service provider, we are responsible for our own content on these pages according to § 7 para.1 TMG (German Telemedia Act) and general laws. According to §§ 8 to 10 TMG we are not obliged to monitor transmitted or stored information from third parties or to investigate circumstances that indicate illegal activity. Obligations to remove or block the use of information according to general laws remain unaffected by this. However, liability in this respect is only possible from the time of knowledge of a concrete infringement. If we become aware of any such legal infringements, we will remove the content in question immediately.


In its judgement of 12 May 1998 (AZ 312 O 85/98), the Hamburg Regional Court decided that the inclusion of a "link" may entail joint responsibility for the content of the linked website. This can, according to the Regional Court in its reasons for the judgement, only be prevented by expressly distancing oneself from these contents.

We have created "links" on our website to other websites on the Internet. The following applies to all these "links": We would like to point out that we have no influence whatsoever on the design and content of the linked websites. Therefore, we cannot accept any liability for the contents of these external websites. The respective provider or operator of the website is always responsible for the content of the linked websites.

The linked websites were checked for possible legal violations at the time of linking. Illegal contents were not identified at the time of linking. However, a permanent control of the linked websites is not reasonable without concrete evidence of a violation of the law. As soon as we become aware of any infringements, we will remove such links immediately. This declaration applies to all "links" on our website and to all contents of the websites to which the "links" lead.



The use of SWISSME's contact data published in the imprint by third parties for sending advertising and information material not expressly requested is hereby expressly prohibited. SWISSME expressly reserves the right to take legal action in the event that unsolicited advertising information is sent, for example by spam mails.

Finally, we would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet can have security gaps, e.g. when communicating by e-mail. Therefore, a complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.
