Unless you expressly inform us otherwise, we will not consider any of the messages, statements, information, queries, comments or other data sent by you to our Website by e-mail or in any other form as confidential, nor will we treat this data as your intellectual property.

In regard to links, banners, and other external content which may be accessible on the Website of Adelholzener Alpenquellen GmbH, we would like to point out that Adelholzener Alpenquellen GmbH does not have any influence on the design and/or content of websites to which these links point, and therefore does not consider such content its own. Pages to which links point were checked for illegal content at the time at which the links were set. However, Adelholzener Alpenquellen GmbH has no influence whatsoever upon the current or future design or content of external websites to which links point. For this reason, Adelholzener Alpenquellen GmbH distances itself expressly from the content and design of all sites to which its links point, inasmuch as these have been changed since the links were set.
    Furthermore we would like to point out that Adelholzener Alpenquellen GmbH naturally has no way of checking which external sites may have set up links to our Website. Adelholzener Alpenquellen GmbH is therefore not responsible for the content of such sites.

  8. Although Adelholzener Alpenquellen GmbH may monitor and check the discussions, chats, messages, statements, bulletin boards and similar content on its website, it is not obliged to do so, nor does it take any responsibility or assume liability for the content of communication forums, be it for errors, defamation, libel, slander, omissions, damage of reputation, obscenities, pornography, religious offences, dangers, or inaccuracies in the information contained in the communication forums on the Website. You are forbidden from sending or posting as a message any material which is illegal, threatening, slanderous, libellous, obscene, offensive, salacious, pornographic or defamatory, or any material which represents punishable behaviour or which incites punishable behaviour, or which violates any other legal regulations. Adelholzener Alpenquellen GmbH shall comply fully with the authorities and courts should they request or instruct Adelholzener Alpenquellen GmbH to reveal the identity of anyone who submits or posts such information or material. Adelholzener Alpenquellen GmbH reserves the right to delete without further notice any material not permitted under this Section 8. Furthermore, Adelholzener Alpenquellen GmbH reserves the right to exclude users who contravene these Terms and Conditions of Use, in particular this Section 8, from using the services provided on the Website.
