1. Content of the online offer

The MESSE ESSEN GmbH shall accept no liability whatsoever for the relevance, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. The MESSE ESSEN GmbH shall particularly offer no guarantee for the fact that such brochure, forms or other documents as are accessible online, conform in content and form to the printed version of the publicised documents.

Such liability claims against MESSE ESSEN GmbH, as are related to damages of material or immaterial nature, caused by the utilisation or non-utilisation of the information presented or through the utilisation of wrong or incomplete information, are basically ruled out as long as this has not been caused by evidentially deliberate acts or wanton negligence on the part of MESSE ESSEN GmbH.

All offers are subject to change without notice and are non-binding. MESSE ESSEN GmbH reserves the exclusive right to change, complement, delete or halt publication completely or for a limited period, of parts of the pages or entire offer without separate notification.

MESSE ESSEN GmbH has no influence of any kind, on current and future design as well as on the contents of the linked pages.
