The author takes no responsibility for the timeliness, accuracy, completeness or quality of the information provided. The author is in no event liable for damages of any kind incurred or suffered as a result of the use or non-use of the information presented on this website or the use of defective or incomplete information unless the author has been acting deliberately or in a wantonly negligent manner.

2. References and links
In cases of direct and indirect references to third-party Internet pages or other documents on the Internet (hyperlinks) the author is not responsible for, the author can only be made liable if the author was aware of the content of the website or if it would have been reasonable and technically feasible to prevent the use of websites with illegal content. The author hereby explicitly states that, at the time of setting the link, there was no evidence of illegal content on the respective website. The author has no influence on the current or future design, the content or the copyright of the linked website. Therefore, the author dissociates him-/herself explicitly from all changes concerning the contents of linked pages that were made after the link was set.

All trade marks and brands mentioned on the website, including those protected by third parties, are without limitation subject to the provisions under the respective labelling law and the rights of the copyright holder. The sole mentioning of a trade mark on this website should not lead to the assumption that it is not protected by the rights of a third party!

4. Data Protection
On some pages you have the possibility to enter personal or business data (e. g. e-mail addresses, names, postal addresses, etc.). The disclosure of this data is voluntary. If technically feasible and where reasonable, all services offered can be used without disclosing personal information or by use of anonymised data or aliases. Exceptions are forms for ordering publications or other materials, registration forms for events or accreditation forms. Third parties are prohibited to send unsolicited information to mailing addresses, phone or fax numbers or e-mail addresses published on the imprint page or similar pages. We reserve the right to take legal action against anyone violating this prohibition by sending so-called spam.
5. E-mail Communication
Security gaps can occur in e-mail communication, if the connection is not encrypted. An e-mail sent to a recipient can be intercepted and read by experienced Internet users. E-Mails are received by the WAPP Head Office. If you send an e-mail to the WAPP Head Office, we assume that the staff is authorised to reply by e-mail. If you do not wish to receive an e-mail, we kindly ask you to consider alternative ways of communication, for example regular mail.
Every access to the WAPP (Positum) website will be stored on the web server as a protocol file for a maximum of 24 hours exclusively for the purpose of data security. The protocol file includes the following data:

We will handle these data confidentially and will only use them as permitted by data protection legislation, and for the purpose for which they were requested. If personal data (such as your name, address or e-mail address) need to be saved for a particular information service, your data will only be retained for the time period required to carry out the service in connection with the data that were collected. If a service is terminated, or you unsubscribe from an information service (e.g. a mailing list), personal data will be irrevocably deleted after six weeks at the latest.
