1. Contents of the online offer
The authors do not assume any liability for the topicality, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims against the authors, which refer to material or immaterial nature, caused by use or disuse of the information or the use of incorrect and incomplete information, are fundamentally excluded, provided that it can be proven that damages have not been caused either intentionally or due to gross
negligence on the part of the authors.

All offers are subject to change and non-binding. The authors expressly reserve the right to change, supplement or delete parts of the webpages or the entire offer without prior notice, or to cease publication temporarily or permanently.

2. References and links
The authors are not responsible for any contents linked or referred to from their pages - an obligation of liability would come into effect exclusively in the event that they had prior knowledge of illegal contents and it would have been technically possible and feasible to prevent the visitors of their site from viewing those pages. The authors therefore expressly declare that at the time the links were created, the corresponding linked pages were free of illegal content.

The authors have no influence whatsoever on the current and future design and content of the linked or referenced pages. Therefore, they dissociate themselves hereby expressly from all contents of all linked or connected sites, which were changed after the linking. This statement applies to all links and references set within the authors’ own internet offer. For illegal, incorrect or incomplete contents, and in particular, for
damages of any kind arising from the use or non-use of such offered information, the provider of the webpage to which reference was made is solely liable, not the person who merely refers to the respective publication via links.

3. Copyright and trademark law
The authors endeavour to observe the copyrights of the graphics and texts used in all publications, to use graphics and texts created by themselves or to use license-free graphics and texts.

All brand names and trademarks mentioned on the website and possibly protected by third parties are subject without restriction to the provisions of the applicable trademark law and the ownership rights of the respective registered owners. The mere mention of brands or trademarks does not imply that these are not protected by the rights of third parties.

The copyright for published objects created by the authors themselves remains solely with the authors of the webpages. Any duplication or use of objects such as diagrams, graphics or texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without the authors' prior express agreement.

4. Data protection
If the opportunity for the input of personal or business data (such as email addresses, names, addresses, etc.) is given, the input of these data takes place expressly voluntarily. By sending the information, the user agrees that personal data will be stored and processed in accordance with the German Federal Data Protection Act. The data will not be passed on to third parties, except among the three partners of In-Situ Microscopy Alliance: namely Alemnis AG, Imina Technologies SA, NenoVision s.r.o.
and point electronic GmbH.

The third party use of any published contact data listed in the imprint or elsewhere on the website (postal addresses, telephone and fax numbers, e-mail addresses) for the sending of unsolicited, unrequested or undesired information is prohibited and shall not be tolerated. The author and publishers of this website reserve the right to take legal action against senders of so-called spam-mail in the event of any infringement against
this prohibition.

5. Legal validity of this disclaimer
This disclaimer is to be regarded as part of the internet publication, which you were referred from. If sections or individual formulations of this text should no longer comply with the effective legal situation or be incomplete, then all other parts of this document remain untouched with regard to their content and its validity.

The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
