Limitation of liability for internal content
The content of our website has been compiled with meticulous care and to the best of our knowledge. However, we cannot assume any liability for the up-to-dateness, completeness or accuracy of any of the pages.
Pursuant to section 7, para. 1 of the TMG (Telemediengesetz – Tele Media Act by German law), we as service providers are liable for our own content on these pages in accordance with general laws. However, pursuant to sections 8 to 10 of the TMG, we as service providers are not under obligation to monitor external information provided or stored on our website. Once we have become aware of a specific infringement of the law, we will immediately remove the content in question. Any liability concerning this matter can only be assumed from the point in time at which the infringement becomes known to us.
Limitation of liability for external links
Our website contains links to the websites of third parties (“external links”). As the content of these websites is not under our control, we cannot assume any liability for such external content. In all cases, the provider of information of the linked websites is liable for the content and accuracy of the information provided. At the point in time when the links were placed, no infringements of the law were recognisable to us. As soon as an infringement of the law becomes known to us, we will immediately remove the link in question.
The content and works published on this website are governed by the copyright laws of Germany. Any duplication, processing, distribution or any form of utilisation beyond the scope of copyright law shall require the prior written consent of the author or authors in question.
A visit to our website can result in the storage on our server of information about the access (date, time, page accessed). This does not represent any analysis of personal data (e.g., name, address or e-mail address). If personal data are collected, this only occurs – to the extent possible – with the prior consent of the user of the website. Any forwarding of the data to third parties without the express consent of the user shall not take place.
We would like to expressly point out that the transmission of data via the Internet (e.g., by e-mail) can offer security vulnerabilities. It is therefore impossible to safeguard the data completely against access by third parties. We cannot assume any liability for damages arising as a result of such security vulnerabilities.
The use by third parties of all published contact details for the purpose of advertising is expressly excluded. We reserve the right to take legal steps in the case of the unsolicited sending of advertising information; e.g., by means of spam mail.
Data Privacy Declaration for the Use of Twitter
Functions of the Twitter service are integrated in our homepage. These functions are being offered by Twitter, Inc. (795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA). The use of Twitter and the “Re-Tweet” function links the websites you visit with your Twitter account and makes this information available to other users. Data is transferred to Twitter in the process.
We want to make you aware that we as a provider of Med-Assess homepage have no knowledge of the content of the transferred data or of its use by Twitter.

Data Privacy Declaration for the Use of Facebook
Med-Assess homepage also uses social plugins provided by the social network facebook.com, operated by Facebook, Inc. (1601 S. California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”)). The social plugins are identifiable by plugin box or "Facebook social plugin". For a full list of all social plugins please see developers.facebook.com/plugins.
When you visit a page of our homepage that contains a social plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to Facebook servers. Facebook directly transfers the social plugin content to your browser which embeds the latter into the website, enabling Facebook to receive information about your having accessed the respective page of our homepage. Thus we have no influence on the data gathered by the plugin and inform you according to our state of knowledge: The embedded plugins provide Facebook with the information that you have accessed the corresponding page of our homepage. If you are logged into Facebook, your visit can be assigned to your Facebook account. If you interact with the social plugins, for example by clicking “Like” or entering a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted from your browser directly to Facebook and stored by it. Even if you are not logged into Facebook, there is possibility that the social plugins transmit your IP-address to Facebook. If you do not want Facebook to allocate the collected data via our homepage to your Facebook account, you must log out of Facebook before you visit Med-Assess homepage.
