Aachen City Council reserves all rights, in whole and in part, including those pertaining to photographic reproduction, copying and proliferation using special procedures (for example data processing, data storage media and data networks).


Aachen City Council is at pains to publish on this website only such information as be accurate and complete. No liability or warranty in respect of information and data being up-to-date, accurate or complete is accepted except in the case of actions or behaviour of a grossly negligent or malicious nature on the part of the provider. No responsibility is taken for direct or indirect loss or damage to rights and entitlements of users suffered as a result of program alteration or manipulation (in particular resulting from viruses) of Aachen City Council web content and linked-to third-party web content.

(Access Provider)
The following applies in respect of labelled links to other sites over which the provider has no control and for whose content Aachen City Council bears no responsibility:
1) Our site contains links to other sites, over whose current and future content Aachen City Council has no influence. As a result we are unable to accept any responsibility for such content. When the links to these pages were created, they were checked for illegal content. At such time no illegal content was ascertained. Regular checks are conducted, and where illegal content is ascertained the links are removed immediately.
2) Aachen City Council is responsible for third-party information which it transmits or to which it provides usage access only in such cases where it has initiated the transmission or where it has itself selected or altered the information addressee. The relevant providers bear responsibility for third-party web content linked to by means of hyperlinks. The same applies to embedded Twitter and Flickr feeds within www.aachen-emotion.com; in such instances responsibility and liability shall remain with the authors and/or Internet platforms. Published content is embedded using a “widget”, meaning that Fachbereich Presse und Marketing has no influence on the wording of such content. Fachbereich Presse und Marketing does however reserve the right to de-activate services temporarily in the case of feeds which are illegal, racist or sexist in nature.
(Host provider)
Aachen City Council accepts responsibility for information which it stores in relation to third parties only where expressly aware of the illegality of the stored activity or information or where aware of facts or circumstances causing the illegal activity or information to be obvious. Similarly no liability is accepted where after gaining knowledge of the illegal information Aachen City Council immediately causes it to be removed or access to be prohibited.
(Cache provider)
Aachen City Council is not responsible for temporary automatic data buffering aimed exclusively at speeding up access to third-party information where it does not alter such information, observes the information access conditions and widely recognised and used industry standards for rules governing update of information, does not impair permitted use of widely recognised and used industry standard technologies for the collection of information usage data and acts without delay to remove, or block access to, the stored information as soon as it has gained knowledge of a removal from the network of information at the original point of transmission or blocking of access thereto or of a court or government order concerning removal or blockage.
Aachen City Council shall not be obliged to monitor information transmitted or stored by it or to hunt for circumstances which indicate illegal activity.
In accordance with the country-of-origin principle all information and data, their use and registration on the Aachen City Council website and all acts of commission, omission and tolerance associated therewith shall be subject exclusively to German Law.
