1. Content of the online offer
Dithmarschen County does not assume any warranty for the topicality, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Any claims asserted against Dithmarschen County which relate to damages of a material or a non-material nature which are caused by the use or disuse of the represented information or by the use of incorrect or incomplete information are generally precluded insofar there is no proven wilful or gross negligence on the part of Dithmarschen County. All offers are subject to confirmation and non-binding. We expressly reserve the right to change, supplement or delete parts of the pages or the entire offer without a separate announcement, or to discontinue publication temporarily or for good.

2. References and links
For direct and indirect references to third party websites ("links") which are outside our scope of responsibility, a liability obligation would exclusively enter into force if Dithmarschen County had knowledge of the content and it would have been technically possible and could reasonably have been expected of it to prevent the use in the event of illegal content. We herewith expressly declare that no illegal content to the linked pages were recognisable at the time the link was created. We have no influence on the current and future design, the content or any copyright of the linked/combined pages. For this reason, we hereby expressly distance ourselves from all content of all linked/combined pages which were changed after the link was created. This applies to all links and references placed on the author's own Internet site, as well as to all entries by third parties in guest books, discussion forums, link directories and mailing lists. Any illegal, incorrect or incomplete content and in particular any damage resulting from use or non-use of information thus offered shall exclusively be within the scope of liability of the provider of the website to which the link leads and not within the scope of liability of the party that merely refers to such publication via links.

3. Copyright and trademark rights
We endeavour to honour, in all publications, the copyright on designs, sound documents, video sequences and texts, to use designs, sound documents, video sequences and texts we have created ourselves or to resort to designs, sound documents, video sequences and texts that are in the public domain. All brands and trademarks included within the web site and in some cases protected by third parties are, without limitation, subject to the regulations of the trademark laws applicable in each case and the ownership rights of the corresponding registered owner. The simple fact that the trademark is included in the web site should not lead to the conclusion that the trademark is not protected by the rights of third parties! The copyright for objects published and created by Dithmarschen County rests solely with us. Reproduction or use of such graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without our express authorisation.

Why is user data stored?
The storage of user data serves to guarantee the operational safety of this web site. It allows Dithmarschen County to determine where errors occur on this web site and correct or improve the content corresponding to the usage requirements.
