Handelsblatt Global is distributed digitally. For that reason, please observe our general terms and conditions as well as our data protection conditions, which also apply to our contractual relationship.
These General Terms and Conditions apply exclusively to Handelsblatt Global and to related services and both supplement and explain our contractual relationship. As more detailed terms and conditions, they take priority over our other General Terms and Conditions.
2. Delivery and time of delivery
As a general rule, we agree upon delivery time and period individually with our subscribers or with companies provided they have a My Company subscription. If no separate agreement has been made, the following applies:
a. Delivery begins on the date indicated in the order, unless we specify another later date to you in our order confirmation. You, of course, also have to agree to this date. Delivery will be made for periods of 12 months and can be terminated with a notice of 4 weeks prior to the end of the delivery period.
b. Delivery will take place as a browser-based online publication.
c. As a general rule, Handelsblatt Global is delivered by 12:00 noon on German trading days. Postponements and delays may occur while necessary editorial updates or revisions are being made (e.g. special events with significantly impacting economic and financial markets). In addition, delivery requires that subscribers have a functioning internet connection; we have no influence on technical problems of the subscriber.
3. Our Content
a. Handelsblatt Global provides you with independent, real-time insight into the economic and financial markets of Germany and other Continental European countries each trading day. Our content is carefully researched and compiled.
b. As a subscriber, you acknowledge that all usage and exploitation rights to content are reserved by us or by our partners from whom we have received the content. Use of the content outside of Handelsblatt Global and the use options provided to you therein require a separate agreement with us. If you are interested in any further use, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We will, of course, attempt to comply with your request to the best of our ability.
Since our content is our asset, any transfer, reproduction, use, editing or making content publicly accessible outside of Handelsblatt Global is not permitted without our prior written consent.
4. Liability, Exemption
a. Although we carefully research and review our content, errors cannot be precluded. We thus accept no responsibility for the accuracy, completeness or timeliness of our information. We bear no liability for whether our content serves your objectives or results in your desired economic success.
b. The content of the My Company page – provided you have a My Company subscription – is the sole responsibility of our contract partners. We accept no responsibility for this content and for any claims, regardless of their nature, which arise if this content is published, reproduced, distributed or made publicly accessible. This also applies if we have edited or revised the content in consultation with you.
c. It is our task to send Handelsblatt Global on time. However, we accept no responsibility for technical problems outside of our control.
d. We are liable for simple negligence to the extent that a material contractual obligation underlies the violation. In this event, our liability is limited to 500 euros for a single event or 1,000 euros for a 12-month period.
e. The above limitations on liability are not valid if our representatives or agents act deliberately or in a grossly negligent manner, in cases of injury to body, life or health or in the case of mandatory liability provided by law, i.e. under the German Product Liability Act (Produkthaftungsgesetz).
As is customary for online publications, Handelsblatt Global contains advertisement spaces. The placement of advertisements is subject to the General Terms and Conditions for the Placement of Advertisements, which can be found at www.iqm.de/digital/mehr/agb. Because Handelsblatt Global is an editorial product and subject to the rules of journalistic independence, no customer is entitled to appear in only a particular advertising environment.
We reserve the right to revise these terms and conditions from time to time. We will inform you of any revisions via e-mail. If you do not object to the change within four weeks, the latest terms and conditions are deemed to have been approved by you.
Venue for all disputes is Dusseldorf, Germany. The law of the Federal Republic of Germany shall apply, with exclusion of the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods.
