The downloading or printing of individual pages or parts of the Business Broker website is permitted for private purposes only. However, this does not constitute the granting of a licence or a right-to-use of images, registered brands or logos on the part of Business Broker AG. In addition, downloading or copying does not in any way signify a transfer of usage rights for the software or other elements of the Business Broker website.

3. No offer and advice

The content published on the Business Broker website serves exclusively for information purposes. It constitutes neither an invitation nor a recommendation, nor an offer for the acquisition or sale of products or services. Accessing the Business Broker website or requesting information does not establish a client relationship between the user of the Business Broker website and Business Broker AG. The Business Broker website content in no way constitutes advice (advice on purchasing, etc.). The information published does not serve as an aid to decision-making in commercial, legal, tax-related or other matters.

4. Access

The Business Broker website is not intended for legal or natural persons who, due to nationality, place of business, domicile or other reasons are subject to a legal system in which the dissemination, publication, provision or use of this information is in violation of applicable laws or provisions or in which Business Broker AG must fulfil obligations for registration or authorisation.

5. Links to third parties

Business Broker AG has not reviewed the third-party websites to which there are links in the Business Broker website. These websites are entirely outside the sphere of influence of Business Broker AG, hence no liability is given for the accuracy, completeness and legitimacy of their content and offerings. The creation of links to these sites is done entirely at the user's own risk.

Where an external website operator wishes to incorporate a link to the Business Broker website, permission must be obtained in advance from Business Broker AG.

The information contained within the Business Broker website comes from sources that can be considered reliable and the currentness, accuracy, regularity and completeness of the information is ensured to the greatest extent possible at the time of publication.

It particularly excludes any liability for damages that the user could have avoided through use of his or her own protective measures.

Business Broker AG can change the data, information etc. published on the Business Broker website at any time and with no advance notice.

7. Note on risk

The Business Broker website may contain information about future developments. The future development of investments cannot be predicted based on past value development, i.e. the value of an investment may rise or fall. Value development in the past does therefore not represent a guarantee of future development. The value preservation or even the increase in value of the invested capital cannot be guaranteed, since the value development is subject to fluctuation. Investments in smaller companies in particular, investments that focus on one sector or one region and/or investments that provide for the use of foreign capital are associated with particular risks. The risk of loss of the capital invested and the risk of further liabilities going beyond this loss are the sole responsibility of the individual.

8. Data protection and data security

Access to the Business Broker website can involve specific cookies or web bugs for the purpose of gathering non-personal data about usage. This data may be evaluated by Business Broker AG itself or by commissioned third parties, particularly for statistical purposes.

Personal data that the user has made available to Business Broker AG explicitly and knowingly may be processed by Business Broker AG. By filling in the contact form to request information about the object of a sale, the user gives his or her express permission to Business Broker AG for his data to be forwarded to the owners of the object for information purposes. Business Broker AG assures the user that these personal data are forwarded exclusively for such information purposes and are not sold to third parties. Business Broker AG will only disclose personal data to other third parties if expressly required by law or regulatory provisions. The user nevertheless grants Business Broker AG the right to contact him/her using this data in order to inform him/her of services or offerings and to provide him/her with information and publicity material for this purpose.

Communication via electronic media harbours the risk of misuse of data and hacker attacks. It therefore cannot be ruled out that data becomes accessible to unauthorised third parties and that the contact between the user and Business Broker AG can be traced.
