All brands and trademarks named in the website and which may be protected by third parties shall be subject without restriction to the terms and conditions of currently prevailing trademark law and to the ownership rights of the respective registered owners. Mere mention alone in our Internet site shall not constitute grounds for assuming that trademarks are not protected by third-party rights.

Images without an explicit reference have to be labelled as “© Bavarian Office for Africa”. Their use requires prior agreement of the Bavarian Office for Africa.

We have compiled and checked all the information provided on this Internet site to the best of our knowledge and belief. We cannot, however, assume any guarantee for the constant topicality, correctness, completeness, and availability of the information provided. Internet sites specifically designated by name reflect the views and knowledge of the authors. No contractual relationship has been established with the users of the Internet site.
We accept no liability for any damage arising from use of this Internet site. This disclaimer shall not apply, where the provisions of Art. 839 BGB [German Civil Code] (liability in case of breach of official duty) are of relevance. No liability is assumed for any damage caused by calling up or downloading data using malware or by the installation or use of software.
The Bavarian Office for Africa explicitly reserves the right to modify, supplement or delete individual web pages or the entire Internet site without special notice or to discontinue publication of the same on a temporary or final basis.
Link & Cross References Disclaimer
A distinction shall be made between our own contents and cross-references (links) to the websites of other providers. By providing such links, we merely facilitate access to use of third-party contents pursuant to Art. 8 of the German Telemedia Act [Telemediengesetz]. When a link to such Internet sites was used for the first time, we checked these third-party contents to ascertain whether they might give rise to responsibility under civil or penal law.
However, we are not able to continuously check these third-party contents for any modifications and we therefore assume no responsibility for the same. Illegal, incorrect, or incomplete contents and in particular damage arising from use or non-use of third-party information are solely the liability of the respective providers of the site.
