The unauthorised use, reproduction or circulation of any part of the site content or full pages may be prosecuted under criminal and civil law.
However, the contents of this website may, to a limited extent, be circulated in copied or printed form, but only for personal, non-commercial information purposes. This does not include transmission or copying onto third party networks nor publication by media which is generally accessible to the public. Commercial use by third parties is prohibited.

Contents of internet pages
The information published on the ulti med internet site is not intended to replace, nor should it be interpreted as personal guidance and advice.
Third party internet sites
Where ulti med provides hyperlinks to another website, ulti med accepts no liability for any representations or content found on the third party site, nor does such a link establish any connection between ulti med and third party sites.
In a decision dated 12 May 1998 – 312 O 85/98 – “Liability for links” the district court of Hamburg ruled that anyone placing a link may be liable for the contents of the linked site. According to the district court of Hamburg, this liability can only be avoided if the party in question expressly distances itself from such content. We therefore expressly distance ourselves from all the content on all linked sites.
1. Content of online offer
The author provides no guarantee concerning the up-to-dateness, accuracy, completeness or quality of the information provided. Claims for liability against the author based on material or non-material damages, caused by the use or non-use of the information given, or the use of defective, incomplete information, are hereby excluded provided that there is no evidence to prove fraud or gross negligence by the author. All offers are subject to confirmation and non-binding. The author expressly reserves the right to change, add to or delete any parts of the pages, or the entire offer, or to discontinue publication on a temporary or permanent basis.
2. References and links
Where direct or indirect reference is made to third party internet sites (“links”) which are not within the author’s sphere of responsibility, the author will only be liable in the event that he has knowledge of the contents and it would be technically possible and reasonable to avoid using the link if it contains illegal information. The author also declares that at the time the link was placed, the linked site did not feature any illegal content. The author has no influence whatsoever over the present or future design or content of any linked or referenced sites. The author therefore distances himself from all the content of any linked or referenced sites which may be altered after the link was placed. This declaration applies to all links and references included in the author’s internet offer, and to entries made by third parties in guest books, discussion forums or mailing lists run by the author. Liability for any illegal, inaccurate or incomplete content, and in particular for any damages caused by the use or non-use of such information, is borne exclusively by the person offering the site on which the information appears, not by the person who merely refers to it through links to his own site.
3. Copyright and trade mark law
In all its publications, the author shall endeavour to observe the copyright of all the graphics, audio and video clips and text used, to use its own graphics, audio and video clips and text or to use graphics, audio and video clips, and text which is not subject to any licence. All the brand names and trade marks protected by third party industrial property rights and named on the internet site are subject to the provisions of trade mark law currently in force, and to the proprietor’s rights of ownership. It may not be deduced from the mere nomination of a trade mark that it is not protected by third party rights! Copyright over items published and produced by the author itself shall remain the exclusive property of the site author. The use or reproduction of such graphics, audio or video clips, and text in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without the express approval of the author.
4. Legal effect of disclaimer
This disclaimer should be interpreted as part of the offer presented on the website. If any parts or phrases of this text do not fully reflect the present or future position of the law, this shall not affect the content or validity of the remainder of the document.
