We have laid links with carefully selected web sites. We have however, no influence on the contents of these web sites. Only the operators alone of the linked web sites are responsible for the contents.
The assize court of Hamburg has ruled with its judgment from 12 May 1998, that the operator of a website may be made responsible for web links which she created. According to the court, shared responsibility can only be ruled out if a clear denial of responsibility for external web sites is expressed. As it has no influence on the contents of the linked websites, PAN Germany herewith expresses that it is not responsible for the contents of linked websites and that it does not consider these as its own. This declaration applies to all external links and contents on PAN Germany-owned websites.
PAN Germany is attempting to offer information of sound quality to the users of its Online Information Service on Non-chemical Pest Management in the Tropics, OISAT Info. Due to the fact that pest management based on non-chemical and ecological approaches cannot be standardized because of the diversity of local factors influencing its performance, PAN Germany does not assume any responsibility for damages which may arise from the use of the information presented in OISAT Info. This covers any direct, indirect or consequential damages.
PAN Germany, however, encourages the users to test the information presented first on a small scale within their location with the aim to study the performance of the presented information under local condition and to adapt it, if necessary. This local validation should be conducted in cooperation with competent local partners.
