Terms of Use

Use of the website “www.newyorker.de” and all other New Yorker websites that are aimed at users in Germany is subject to the following Terms of Use.
The Terms of Use will be amended from time to time in line with changes, but explicit notice of amendments will not be given. For this reason, you should check the Terms of Use yourself from time to time for amendments. By using our websites, you are deemed to have accepted these Terms of Use.

If you are under 18, use this website only with the consent of your legal guardians. The privacy of data pertaining to children is particularly important to us and we therefore never knowingly collect data pertaining to minors without the consent of their legal guardians. Whenever we become aware that minors have entered their personal data without their guardians’ consent or that data pertaining to minors has been entered by anyone without the necessary consent, the data is deleted.

1. Right of use

2. Liability

New Yorker will do everything appropriate to make sure that the information on the website is correct and up-to-date. However, we cannot guarantee or promise that it actually is correct and/or up-to-date. Please also note that we cannot be held liable for the consequences of our website being unavailable. For this reason we reserve the right to modify or withdraw content and services at any time, unless contractually agreed otherwise. We therefore take no responsibility for the availability or otherwise of our website and assume no liability, when we are not at fault, either for the website being unavailable or for loss of data.

Where this website contains links to websites provided by third parties, we do not adopt the third party content as our own and are not able to subject other companies’ websites to continuous monitoring. The sole purpose of such links is to serve as a pointer to you. Neither are we responsible for the availability of linked sites. New Yorker is not obliged by law to monitor information that is transmitted or saved, or to look out for indications of illegal activity (§ 7 German Telemedia Act (TMG)).

Where we offer you the opportunity to participate in interactive services, responsibility for the content you provide lies with you.

We assume unlimited liability on the merits for intent and gross negligence. In cases of ordinary negligence, however, we are liable only when a material contractual obligation has been breached, and our liability is limited to foreseeable and contractually anticipated damage.

We are not liable for consequential damage, and specifically not for loss of earnings or immaterial damage. Furthermore, we assume no liability for loss of data or for other damage to your hardware or software attributable to downloading material from the website.
The above limitations of liability do not apply in cases of death, injury or impaired health in which we are at fault or to claims under the Product Liability Act.

The above limitations of liability apply analogously to New Yorker’s staff, legal representatives and subcontractors.

The user is liable for all the losses incurred by New Yorker either as a result of the website being used in an improper or illegal manner or as a result of your culpable failure to fulfill your contractual obligations.

5. Miscellaneous

Should any provision of these Terms of Use be or become invalid or contradict statutory provisions, the validity of the remaining terms of use will remain hereby unaffected. The invalid provision will be replaced by a provision agreed upon by the parties that achieves as closely as possible the economic purpose of the invalid provision in a legally effective manner. The same shall apply analogously to loopholes in the Terms.
