IJAB constantly endeavours to keep this website up to date and to provide users with comprehensive and accurate information. However, we offer no guarantee for the currency, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided here.

Any claims for liability against IJAB that are brought due to material or immaterial damage caused by the use or non-use of the provide information, or by the use of inaccurate or incomplete information, shall be excluded on principle provided there is no evidence that the author acted with intent or gross negligence.

All information provided here now and in future are subject to change and non-binding. We expressly reserve the right to amend, supplement or delete individual pages or the entire contents of this website and to cease publication thereof either temporarily or permanently without separate advance notice.

References and links

Where this site contains direct or indirect references ('links') to third-party websites that are outside the sphere of responsibility of the author, liability can only be assumed in cases where the author is aware of the content of said websites and it is technically feasible and reasonable to expect that the author is able to prevent access to them should they offer illegal content. The author hence expressly declares that the linked websites were free of illegal content at the point in time the links were placed.

The author has no influence over the current and future design and content of the linked websites. For this reason the author expressly distances itself from all content on the linked websites that was changed after the links in question were placed on this website. This declaration shall apply to all links and references contained on the author's own website as well as to all third-party entries written in virtual guestbooks, discussion forums and mailing lists that were set up by the author.

Liability for illegal, inaccurate or incomplete content and in particular, for damage caused by the use or non-use of said content shall be assumed exclusively by the operator of the website to which the link directs, not by the entity that merely points to said content via a link.

Rights of use concerning texts and files

Unless otherwise indicated, all rights are held by IJAB – International Youth Service of the Federal Republic of Germany.

Texts and files subject to a Creative Commons Licence shall be exempt from this rule; in such cases, the applicable rights of use reserved by the authors of said texts and files must be observed.

Unless otherwise agreed in individual cases and to the extent this does not affect third-party rights, the sharing of documents and images held on either electronically or in print, either entirely or partially, shall be permitted provided the URL is cited as the source.

The commercial sharing of texts, information and images held on without IJAB's prior written consent shall be prohibited.
