Access to and use of this website is at the user's own risk. The German Environment Agency is not responsible and assumes no liability for any damage whether direct, indirect, accidental, pre-definable or consequential that is allegedly caused by or in connection with an access to and/or use of this website.

When content is requested from this website, access data is saved. This is data about the page from where the file was requested, the name of the requested file, date, time and duration of the request, the amount of data transferred, and the access status (e.g. file transferred, file not found). This saved data is evaluated exclusively for statistical purposes and never forwarded to third parties.

Copyright and trademark law

The German Emissions Trading Authority (DEHSt) at the German Environment Agency has undertaken to observe the copyrights of graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts used, to use graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts created by themselves, or to employ license-free graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts. All brands and trademarks mentioned within the internet services and possibly protected by third parties are without restriction subject to the provisions of the respectively valid trademark law and ownership rights of the respective registered owners. The mere naming of the trademark does not invite the conclusion that trademarks are not protected by third-party rights.

The copyright for published objects created by DEHSt themselves remains with them and the staff working on the pages. Unless otherwise indicated, objects, graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts created by DEHSt on this website are under a Creative Commons Attribution – non-commercial – no derivatives 4.0 international license.

References to links and metadata

In the case of direct or indirect references to third-party websites ("hyperlinks"), which are outside the area of responsibility of the German Emission Trading Authority (DEHSt), a liability obligation would only come into force in the event that DEHSt were aware of the content and it would be technically possible and reasonable for us to prevent the use of the illegal content. DEHSt hereby expressly declares that no illegal content on the linked pages was recognisable at the time of setting the link. DEHSt has no influence whatsoever on the current and future design, the contents or the copyright of the linked/connected pages. Therefore, we hereby expressly dissociate ourselves from all contents of all linked/connected pages, which were changed after setting the link. This applies to all links and references, and also to foreign entries in guest books, discussion forums, link collections, and mailing lists. It is the provider of the site to which reference has been made who is solely liable for any illegal, incorrect or incomplete content and in particular for damage resulting from the use or non-use of such provided information. The person who merely refers to the respective publication via links is in no way liable. Third-party websites accessed via external links may not meet accessibility standards.
