Limitation of liability for internal content
The content of our website has been compiled with meticulous care and to the best of our knowledge. However, we cannot assume any liability for the up-to-dateness, completeness or accuracy of any of the pages. Pursuant to §7 par. 1 of TMG (Telemediengesetz - German Tele-Media Act), the law limits our responsibility as a service provider to our own content on these Web pages.
According to §§8 to 10 of TMG, we are not under obligation to monitor external information provided or stored on our website. Once we have become aware of a specific infringement of the law, we will immediately remove the content in question. Any liability concerning this matter can only be assumed from the point in time at which the infringement becomes known to us.

External Links
Our website contains links to the websites of third parties ("external links"). As the content of these websites is not under our control, we cannot assume any liability for such external content. In all cases, the provider of information of the linked websites is liable for the content and accuracy of the information provided. At the point in time when the links were placed, no infringements of the law were recognizable to us. As soon as an infringement of the law becomes known to us, we will immediately remove the link in question.

On Public artist-info.com pages of artists are displayed in the right pane links to offers by amazon.com for new books and by abebooks.com for used and antiquarian books for the artist\'s name of this Public artist page. The search in amazon.com and abebooks.com database is in some cases of similar names difficult and does not always filter the artist\'s name displayed in artist-info. We apologize for any misfit of names. In case the displayed book isn\'t related to the artist\'s name then offers for the artist\'s name are most likely only be displayed when switching to these booksellers pages with the provided \'Show all\' link.

Any forwarding of the data to third parties without the express consent of the user shall not take place.
We would like to expressly point out that the transmission of data via the Internet (e.g., by e-mail) can offer security vulnerabilities.

Artist user group: For Artist-Portfolio Service;
Gallery, Museum, Non-Profit, Collector user-group: For Exhibition Announcements Service.

Conditions for images and video links
User\'s possibility to add in description for uploaded images and for video links the holder of the copyright for the image and for the video shown must be used by user to state copyright holder, permission and role or involvement to publish the image and or video in order to avoid any misunderstanding or infringement of any copyright involved. If the author of any of this material uploads himself e.g. in an artist-portfolio his material he has to state his author ship. As artist-info.com pages can be accessed worldwide we strongly recommend to carefully studying copyright used in your own country and any other country to avoid any infringement what so ever.
It is important to take into account all possible copyrights for your uploaded image and video link in particular. Even if the video may only display parts of copyrighted material, like text or music, it is necessary that user (as this is the artist-info.com account holder) who uploads image or video is the sole responsible person.
artist-info.com reserves all rights to take offline, or delete or close user accounts which don\'t apply to artist-info.com Terms of Service and Privacy Policy.

If any copyright or usage fee for the uploaded images and video content of video links is involved the user (as this is the artist-info.com account holder) who uploads them is the sole responsible to pay for it or must be able to state by written consent the release from charges what so ever.
artist-info.com excludes with no exception any responsibility for any copyright fees, charges or duties related to uploaded text, images or video links from YouTube® and/or vimeo® by user.
Any user who includes video links related to YouTube® or vimeo® must explicitly and in each detail comply with terms and conditions and Privacy Policy of these sources.

Because content owners have the right to change their mind about how their content is displayed on our site, it\'s possible that content that was once allowed is subsequently blocked. Also, it is possible that multiple parties hold rights to different components (e.g. audio, video, text, music) of a copyrighted work. While one owner may allow the use of their material on YouTube®, another may decide to disallow use.

If you have cleared the rights to use certain copyrighted material in your video, you may want to alert the original content owner of your video\'s title and address on YouTube®, vimeo® and artist-info.com, to avoid a mistaken removal. If your video is removed in error, you have the option to request a retraction from the claimant or submit a counter notification.

It\'s possible that you may be permitted to include small excerpts from copyrighted material in your video if what you intend to use is insubstantial or is incidentally included, or where the intended use you have for the copyrighted material falls within a exception or limitation to copyright under the law in your country.

We can\'t give you advice on either of these topics, and if you do plan to use even a small portion of copyrighted material in your video we\'d strongly advise you to take legal advice first.

Artist-info.com cannot advise whether or not your video will ultimately qualify as fair use; this is something that can only be decided by a court. It is your responsibility to know the laws in your country, and to understand fair use before you decide to make a video incorporating copyrighted content without permission. If you choose to do so, and your video is removed by the copyright owner, it is even more important that you understand your position before deciding to submit a copyright counter-notification.

You may not upload videos containing ads that are displayed before, during, or after the video unless given prior written permission from an authorized member of the artist-info.com staff. Videos with advertisements in them will be removed. You may not upload videos pertaining to multi-level marketing (MLM), get-rich-quick schemes, cash gifting, work-from-home businesses, or any other dubious money-making ventures. You may not upload product promotions or sales videos such as real estate walkthroughs. Television stations may not use artist-info.com to redistribute their programming. We reserve the right to allow the uploading of certain commercial content for businesses which have coordinated sponsored advertising campaigns or other partnerships with artist-info.com.

Registered user of artist-info.com understands that certain types of content are not permitted on artist-info.com. You may not upload sexually explicit material or pornography. Non-sexual nudity is allowed.
You may not upload videos that incite hatred; include defamatory or discriminatory speech; or depict unlawful acts or extreme violence.
You may post videos of yourself on TV, as long as you have permission to upload and the video depicts only your involvement in the program.
You may not upload videos that are clips or compilations of scenes from TV programs or movies.
You may not upload captures of video games or game-play, even if edited.
