10. Liability, Indemnity

The fact that A-ZBusinessFinder offers a platform to the content of third parties does not mean that A-ZBusinessFinder owns these content, nor does it mean that A-ZBusinessFinder agrees with them, takes a position concerning them or will necessarily edit them. The responsibility for external content is exclusively with the corresponding service provider and/or the reviewer who has posted such content in the A-ZBusinessFinder service, not with A-ZBusinessFinder. If A-ZBusinessFinder finds out, however, that external content contravene these conditions of use, then A-ZBusinessFinder will respond appropriately and in accordance with these conditions of use.

If, however, there is simply the suspicion of a contravention of the conditions of use, then A-ZBusinessFinder is not responsible for a failure to act unless the contravention can be proven.

If you culpably contravene these conditions of use, then you absolve A-ZBusinessFinder of any responsibility for any resulting damage that may occur, including the costs of legal defence at the level of the legally accruing fees. The onus is on you to provide proof that either no damage or damage lesser than that asserted by A-ZBusinessFinder has occurred.

Subject to the following conditions, A-ZBusinessFinder reserves the right to change the conditions of use and services in as far as the changes are reasonable to you under consideration of the interests of A-ZBusinessFinder; this is especially the case if the changes do not generally pose a disadvantage to you, e.g. changes to contact information, assumption of additional services or similar.

In general, prior to a change to these conditions of use, A-ZBusinessFinder will inform you in one of the following methods: Either the changed conditions of use will be made accessible to you prior to the activation of new functions or services on the homepage and your agreement requested, or A-ZBusinessFinder will inform you about them by sending an email to the mail address provided on registration in advance period of at least one month prior to the coming into effect of the change.
