Scope of application
The following legal provisions apply to all individuals who access the website of Vorwerk Switzerland Ltd., irrespective of their place of residence. Unless otherwise stated, they are applicable to all information and services published on the Vorwerk Switzerland Ltd. website.
1. WEBSITE CONTENT
The operator of the website and the authors accept no liability for the topicality, accuracy or quality of the information provided. Liability claims against operators and authors based on material or non-material damage resulting from the use of, or failure to use, the information made available or the use of incorrect or incomplete information are generally excluded, unless it is possible to prove that the operator or authors acted intentionally and/or with gross negligence. All offers are non-binding. The operator and authors explicitly reserve the right to modify, supplement or delete parts of the website or the entire website without prior notice, or to cease publication temporarily or completely.
2. REFERENCES AND LINKS:
In cases involving direct or indirect references to third-party websites (links) that do not fall within the sphere of responsibility of the operator or the authors, the operator or authors are only liable if they are aware of the content and if it should be technically possible and reasonable to prevent the use of any illegal content. The operator and authors have no influence whatsoever over the current or future design or content of the linked pages. As a result, they explicitly dissociate themselves from any content of the linked pages and reject any responsibility for the content of linked websites. This declaration applies to all links and references on the website, and to all entries made by third parties in visitors’ books, discussion forums and mailing lists of the operator. Only the provider of the page to which reference is made is liable for all illegal, incorrect or incomplete information and, in particular, for any damage arising from the use of, or failure to use, such information and not the party that merely refers to the publications in question using links.
