Limitation of liability


Signite GmbH makes every effort to update the websites on an ongoing basis but does not guarantee the accuracy or completeness of the content. Furthermore:

Signite GmbH assumes no responsibility for the content or accuracy of information contained in user registration data or other content generated by users. Likewise, Signite GmbH assumes no liability for the possible misuse of information.

Signite GmbH is only liable for damages resulting from injury to life, body or health if they are based on an intentional or negligent breach of duty by Signite GmbH or an intentional or negligent breach of duty by a legal representative or vicarious agent of Signite GmbH.

Signite GmbH shall only be liable for other damages, insofar as they are not based on the violation of cardinal obligations (such obligations, the fulfillment of which make the proper execution of the contract possible in the first place and the observance of which the contractual partner may regularly rely on), if they are based on an intentional or grossly negligent violation of obligations by Signite GmbH or on an intentional or grossly negligent violation of obligations by a legal representative or vicarious agent of Signite GmbH.

Claims for damages based on injury to life, limb, health or freedom shall become statute-barred after 30 years; otherwise after 1 year, whereby the statute of limitations shall commence at the end of the year in which the claim arose and the creditor becomes aware of the circumstances giving rise to a claim and the person of the debtor or should have become aware without gross negligence (§ 199 Para.1 BGB).

Signite GmbH is not liable for unauthorized knowledge of personal user data by third parties (e.g. by “hacking” the database). Likewise, the operator is not liable for the misuse of user information by third parties, which was made accessible to third parties by these users themselves.


Availability of the website


The user has no claim to availability of the website. Signite GmbH endeavors to guarantee an availability of 97% based on the calendar year. Availability is the ratio of actual time (IZ) to target time (SZ): VF(%) =(IZ / SZ) *100. Actual time (IZ) is the time period in which the system is actually available at the router output of the website’s data center. Not included in the target time are maintenance times required for the maintenance of the system and interruptions for offline backups in each case within reasonable limits (industry standard) as well as interruptions due to force majeure or other causes for which the website is not responsible, due to intent or gross negligence.

Signite GmbH points out

that it is technically impossible to provide the website free of errors of any kind and that Signite GmbH therefore accepts no responsibility for them,

that errors can lead to the temporary shutdown of the websites,

that the availability of these websites is dependent on conditions and services beyond the control of Signite GmbH, such as transmission capacities and telephone connections between the individual parties. Signite GmbH is not responsible for any disruptions in this area.
