Le­gal Ad­vice / Dis­claimer

The Ci­ty of Cologne has al­ways made the cor­rect­ness, com­plete­ness and top­i­cal­i­ty of the in­for­ma­tion on this its in­ter­net pres­ence a prime con­cern. Be that as it may, in­ac­cu­ra­cies and mi­s­un­der­s­tand­ings can­not be ruled out. The Ci­ty of Cologne is not li­able for any da­m­age or in­jury that may arise from the use of the da­ta and in­for­ma­tion pro­vid­ed here or from the use of er­ro­neous and / or in­com­plete in­for­ma­tion or da­ta in­so­far as no premed­i­tat­ed or gross­ly neg­li­gent be­haviour can be estab­lished on its part. This dis­claimer does not cov­er da­m­age(s)/claims aris­ing from in­jury to life, body or health.


In­so­far as the In­ter­net pres­ence of the Ci­ty of Cologne grants ac­cess, as for in­s­tance through links, to out­side sources and ma­te­rial pro­vid­ed by other bid­ders, we here­by state that the Ci­ty of Cologne nei­ther has any in­flu­ence on the con­tent of such sites nor ac­tive­ly sub­scribes to such con­tents. At the time of writ­ing the Ci­ty of Cologne has no knowl­edge of any un­law­ful or of­fen­sive mat­ter on any of the linked sites run by out­side par­ties. Should linked sites from out­side par­ties nev­er­the­less con­tain un­law­ful or of­fen­sive mat­ter, the Ci­ty of Cologne ex­press­ly dis­so­ci­ates it­self from them.
