3. Haftung

3.1 Unsere Newsletter, ePublikationen, Webseiteninhalte (z. B. Blog), App und der entsprechenden Web-Software (Chartkalkulation) sowie Büchern, dienen ausschließlich zu Informationszwecken und sind nicht als Handlungsanweisung zu verstehen. Jeder Nutzer entscheidet selbstverantwortlich, ob er bestimmte Angebote nutzen möchte und handelt.

3.2 Die von uns bereit gestellten Informationen werden immer nach bestem Wissen und Gewissen recherchiert. Leider können sich bei den im Rahmen von Newsletters, ePublikationen, Webseiteninhalten (z. B. Blog), App und der entsprechenden Web-Software (Chartkalkulation) sowie Büchern, beschriebenen Aktionen kurzfristig immer wieder Änderungen ergeben, auf die CFC keinen Einfluss hat. Daher ist eine Haftung von CFC für die Umsetzbarkeit und Richtigkeit der in Newsletters, ePublikationen, auf der Webseite (z. B. Blog oder der errechneten Resultate), in der App und der entsprechenden Web-Software (Chartkalkulation) sowie Büchern, beschriebenen Sachverhalte ausgeschlossen.

3.3 Ebenso wird keine Haftung für etwaige Schäden übernommen, die sich durch unsachgemäße Anwendung seitens des Nutzers der Informationen aus Newsletters, ePublikationen, Webseiteninhalten (z. B. Blog), App und der entsprechenden Web-Software (Chartkalkulation) sowie Büchern bzw. durch CFC bei Erstellung dieser Publikationen nicht bekannte Aktionsänderungen und Aktionsbedingungen ergeben.

3.4 Im Rahmen unserer Mitgliedschaften bieten wir umfassende Beratungsleistungen an, bezüglicher der Handhabung der App / Software. Auch dies erfolgt nach bestem Wissen und Gewissen. Eine Haftung für Umsetzbarkeit und Richtigkeit ist ausgeschlossen.

3.5 CFC haftet nicht für die Inhalte Dritter, auch wenn auf diese mittels Links oder in Newsletters, ePublikationen und/oder Büchern von CFC verwiesen wird.

3.6 CFC kann insbesondere auch keine Haftung für die Freiheit von Viren und sonstigen schädlichen Programmen wie etwa Spyware, Trojanern und Ähnlichem auf Seiten Dritter übernehmen, auch wenn auf diese mittels Links oder in Newsletters, ePublikationen, auf der Webseite (z. B. Blog), in der App und der entsprechenden Web-Software (Chartkalkulation) sowie Büchern verwiesen wird.

3.7 Von der Haftungsbeschränkung ausgenommen sind Schadensersatzansprüche des Nutzers aus der Verletzung des Lebens, des Körpers, der Gesundheit oder aus der Verletzung wesentlicher Vertragspflichten (Kardinalpflichten) sowie die Haftung für sonstige Schäden, die auf einer vorsätzlichen oder grob fahrlässigen Pflichtverletzung der CFC SERVICES & ADMINISTRATION LTD, ihrer gesetzlichen Vertreter oder Erfüllungsgehilfen beruhen. Wesentliche Vertragspflichten sind solche, deren Erfüllung zur Erreichung des Ziels des Vertrags notwendig ist.

3.8 Bei der Verletzung wesentlicher Vertragspflichten haftet CFC nur auf den vertragstypischen, vorhersehbaren Schaden, wenn dieser einfach fahrlässig verursacht wurde, es sei denn, es handelt sich um Schadensersatzansprüche des Nutzers aus einer Verletzung des Lebens, des Körpers oder der Gesundheit.

3.9 Die vorstehenden Einschränkungen gelten auch zugunsten der gesetzlichen Vertreter und Erfüllungsgehilfen von CFC CFC SERVICES & ADMINISTRATION LTD, wenn Ansprüche direkt gegen diese geltend gemacht werden. Die Haftungsbeschränkungen gelten nicht, soweit CFC den Mangel arglistig verschwiegen oder eine Garantie für die Beschaffenheit der Sache übernommen hat. Das gleiche gilt, soweit die Parteien eine Vereinbarung über die Beschaffenheit der Sache getroffen haben. Die Vorschriften des Produkthaftungsgesetzes bleiben unberührt.

4. Registrierung auf unserer Webseite und Passwort

6. Angebot, Vertragsabschluss

6.2 Durch Absendung der Bestellung aus dem “virtuellen Warenkorb” mit Hilfe des Buttons “JETZT ZAHLUNGSPFLICHTIG BESTELLEN” gibt der Nutzer eine verbindliche Bestellung über die in diesem enthaltenen Artikel ab. Den Zugang dieser Bestellung wird CFC dem Nutzer unverzüglich per E-Mail bestätigen.

Versandkostenstaffelung:

Diese Gebühren werden in der Regel vom Versandunternehmen oder Frachtunternehmen bei Lieferung eingezogen oder wenn Sie den Artikel abholen. Bei diesen Gebühren handelt es sich nicht um zusätzliche Versandkosten.

8.1 Unter ebooks werden sämtliche Publikationen gefasst, die CFC seinen Kunden im Rahmen des Shops bzw. im Rahmen einer Mitgliedschaft elektronisch anbietet bzw. zur Verfügung stellt.

8.2 Der Verkäufer räumt dem Kunden gegen Zahlung des vereinbarten Preises das nicht ausschließliche, nicht übertragbare Recht ein, das von dem Verkäufer in elektronischer Form zur Verfügung gestellte eBook ausschließlich für den eigenen Gebrauch zu nutzen. Dies umfasst insbesondere die Verwendung des eBooks zum Zwecke der eigenen Information. Dabei können Inhalte auch für im selben Haushalt lebende Familienmitglieder genutzt werden.

Zukünftige Updates sind gesondert zu erwerben, es sei denn der Nutzer ist Premium-Mitglied auf dem Level Platin oder Diamant. In letzterem Fall hat der Nutzer stets Zugriff auf die jeweils aktuellsten ePublikationen – sofern diese in der jeweiligen Mitgliedschaft inkludiert sind.

8.6 Wenn nicht von CFC vorher schriftlich genehmigt, sind eine öffentliche Wiedergabe oder sonstige Weiterveröffentlichung sowie eine gewerbliche Vervielfältigung oder ein Weiterverkauf bzw. Weitergabe der ebooks oder von Teilen derselben ausdrücklich ausgeschlossen.

8.7 Für jeden Fall der schuldhaften Zuwiderhandlung gegen diese Nutzungsbeschränkungen ist eine Vertragsstrafe von 5.000 Euro an CFC zu leisten, es sei denn der Nutzer weist nach, dass CFC kein oder nur ein geringerer Schaden entstanden ist. Die Geltendmachung eines weitergehenden Schadens sowie von Unterlassungsansprüchen bleibt hiervon unberührt.

use or launch any automated system, including without limitation, “robots”, “spiders” or “offline readers” to generate artificial views of Video Content, or to otherwise access the CFC Site in a manner that sends more request messages to the CFC servers in a given period of time than a human can reasonably produce in the same period by using a conventional on-line web browser;

modify any specifications, technology or application codes, unless expressly authorized in writing by CFC.

Some Trial Features may be made available on an as-is basis only, which will be marked as such. Your use of the Trial Features is at Your own risk. All information relating to the Trial Features will be treated as “confidential” in accordance with Section 14 (“Confidential Information”).

As more fully set forth in Section 15 (“Representations and Warranties”), You may not submit any Member Comments that contain any sexually suggestive, pornographic, infringing, hate-related, violent or illegal content.

You are solely responsible for all video content You transmit or submit to CFC, whether created by or for You, including but not limited to graphics, music, sound, images, files, photos, animation, artwork, text, data, information, messages, hypertext links, scripts or other material (collectively, “Video Content”). CFC disclaims all liability relating to Your Video Content. As more fully set forth in Section 15 (“Representations and Warranties”), You may not submit Video Content that contains any pornographic, infringing, hate-related, violent or illegal content.

You agree and accept that CFC may, in its sole discretion, and without liability:

reject, suspend access to or remove any of Your Video Content from its websites at any time that CFC deems it, in its sole discretion, unsuitable for CFC;

modify any metadata You submit with Your Video Content, including without limitation meta tags, age rating, descriptive language, search terms, category and keyword modifiers.

In connection with CFC’s marketing, distribution and provision of the CFC Membership Program as contemplated herein, You permit CFC, as further described in Section 10, to:

host, index and cache Your Video Content;

tag Your Video Content with information that will be used by CFC to identity it as Your Video Content; and

engage in such further actions regarding Your Video Content as may be necessary or appropriate in order to effect the purposes of the CFC Membership Program.

During the term of this Agreement You may request that CFC remove any or all of Your Video Content from CFC. However, You acknowledge and agree that CFC shall have no obligation to attempt to remove from distribution any of Your Video Content that is otherwise publicly available through the Internet or other publicly accessible medium.

In the event that CFC fails to promptly remove such requested Video Content from CFC after Your request for removal, CFC shall not be liable to You for damages or charges of any kind in an amount greater than ten pounds (£10). For the avoidance of doubt, the Creative Commons BY-NC-ND License (defined below) that You have granted in Section 9(g) (“Content Providers: Your Irrevocable Non-Commercial Distribution License”) herein shall remain in effect for this purpose only.

You agree that You will not:

use or launch any automated system, including without limitation, “robots”, “spiders” or “offline readers” to generate artificial views of Video Content, or to otherwise access the CFC Site in a manner that sends more request messages to the CFC servers in a given period of time than a human can reasonably produce in the same period by using a conventional on-line web browser;

modify any specifications, technology or application codes, unless expressly authorized in writing by CFC.

Some Trial Features may be made available on an as-is basis only, which will be marked as such. Your use of the Trial Features is at Your own risk. All information relating to the Trial Features will be treated as “confidential” in accordance with Section 14 (“Confidential Information”).

7. Participation at Your Own Risk

Your Participation is at Your own risk. Although the CFC Membership Program enables users to connect and share Video Content and Member Comments with one another and with end users or viewers, CFC has no responsibility to control or monitor any information or exchanges between or among users. CFC does not control the Video Content or Member Comments made available through the CFC. Some people may find Video Content and Member Comments objectionable, inappropriate or offensive. CFC does not control or guarantee, nor is CFC responsible for, the truth, accuracy, ownership, completeness, integrity, safety, timeliness, quality, appropriateness, legality or applicability of any Video Content and Member Comments. CFC assumes no responsibility for monitoring any Video Content and Member Comments or conduct during Participation. If CFC chooses, at any time in its sole discretion, to monitor (in whole or in part) Video Content and Member Comments or conduct during Participation, CFC nonetheless assumes no responsibility for Video Content and Member Comments, no obligation to modify or remove any Video Content and Member Comments and no responsibility for conduct during Participation. You agree that CFC has no responsibility or liability for the deletion or failure to store, maintain or transmit any Video Content and Member Comments.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, You may accurately disclose and describe Your Participation and Your Video Content or Member Comments (for example, describing and promoting Your Video Content on Your blog or in emails).

(j) Reserved Rights. You will not attempt to modify, prepare derivative works from, translate, adapt, edit, decompile, disassemble or reverse engineer any specifications, technology, applications or software programs provided or made accessible to You or used by CFC in connection with the CFC Membership Program in any way, unless expressly authorized in writing by CFC.

The arbitrator shall apply the law of England and Wales to the merits of any dispute or claim. The decision of the arbitrator shall be final and unappealable. The arbitration shall be conducted in London, England and judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. In the event any action is brought by either party in connection with this Agreement, the substantially prevailing party will be entitled to recover from the other party all the costs, legal fees and other expenses reasonably incurred by such party. All offers, promises, conduct and statements, whether oral or written, made in the course of the arbitration by any of the parties, their agents, employees, experts and legal counsels, and by the arbitrator and any of their employees, are confidential, privileged and inadmissible for any purpose, including impeachment, in any litigation or other proceeding involving the parties, provided that evidence that is otherwise admissible or discoverable shall not be rendered inadmissible or non-discoverable as a result of its use in the arbitration.

(b) Injunctive Relief. Notwithstanding the “Governing Law; Arbitration” section above, You agree that certain breaches by You would cause irreparable injury to CFC, for which there are no adequate remedies at law, and nothing in this Section shall be deemed to prevent or delay CFC’s attempt to seek a temporary restraining order, preliminary injunction, specific performance or other interim or conservatory relief from any court having jurisdiction, without any abridgment of the power of the arbitrator, for Your breach of: (i) Section 9(a) (“CFC’s Ownership Rights”); (ii) Section 11 (“Copyright Infringement”); and (iii) Section 14 (“Confidential Information”).

Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement will bind and inure to the benefit of each party’s permitted successors and assigns.

(d) Waiver; Severability. The failure to require performance of any provision shall not affect CFC’s right to require performance at any time thereafter, nor shall a waiver of any breach or default of this Agreement constitute a waiver of any subsequent breach or default or a waiver of the provision itself. If any portion of this Agreement is found to be unenforceable, such portion will be modified to reflect the parties’ intention and only to the extent necessary to make it enforceable, and the remaining provisions of this Agreement will remain in full force and effect.

(e) Export Restrictions/Legal Compliance. You agree to comply with all United Kingdom and other applicable export laws and related restrictions and regulations, and not to directly or indirectly export, provide or otherwise make available the services and products of CFC in violation of any such export laws, unless any required prior authorizations or necessary approvals are obtained by You, at Your expense, from the applicable United Kingdom or foreign authority.

(f) Entire Agreement. This Agreement constitutes the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between You and CFC regarding this subject matter, and supersedes any and all prior or contemporaneous agreements or understandings, written and oral, between You and CFC relating to this subject matter. You may be subject to additional terms and conditions that may apply when You use or access certain features of the CFC Membership Program.

(g) Relationship. You and CFC are independent contractors, and this Agreement, including but not limited to submission of any Video Content or Member Comments, will not, in whole or in part, establish any relationship of partnership, joint venture, employment, franchise or agency between the You and CFC. Neither party will have the power to bind the other or incur obligations on the other’s behalf without the other’s prior written consent. Neither party is authorized to act as an agent or representative of the other or for or on behalf of the other party in any capacity other than as expressly set forth in this Agreement. Neither party shall in any manner advertise, represent or hold itself (or any of its agents) out as so acting or being authorized so to act, or incur any liabilities or obligations on behalf of, or in the name of, the other party, unless specifically provided for in this Agreement. Moreover, each party shall be solely responsible for the payment of all of its own taxes, assessments and all other similar withholdings from or assessments on any monies paid hereunder or in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby.
