Links and References (Disclaimer)

The State of Bavaria Québec Office is only responsible for its “own content“ that is available for use.

Beside this “own content”, you can find references (Links) to websites from other providers. With the reference specified as a "Link", the State of Bavaria Québec Office grants access to the „other contents“.

With these references, the State of Bavaria Québec Office only offers access to use the contents. It is not responsible for the “other contents” since it does not induce the transmission of information, does not choose the addressee of the information transmitted and that it did not choose or modify the information. Also, an automatic intermediate storage of this other information does not occur because of the call-up and linking methods, so that the State Chancellery does not take any responsibility for these “other contents”.

However, during the first connection with the web site, the editorial office of the State of Bavaria Québec Office verified the other content, in order to be cleared of any possible civil law or penal law responsibility. However, as soon as the State of Bavaria Québec Office will notice an anomaly or that others draw its attention to the possibility that a concrete offer for which there is a link, can lead to a civil or penal responsibility, the link for this offer will be immediately removed as far as it is technically possible or reasonable.

For illegal, inaccurate or incomplete contents and particularly for damages that may come from the use or disuse of a third party, the provider at the time is sole responsible of the web page for which the links refers to.
