References and links
castLabs shall not be liable for any content of third-party Internet sites, which are referred to directly or indirectly from his pages by links and which are beyond his sphere of responsibility, unless he has full knowledge of the content and it would be technically possible and reasonable to expect him to prevent use in the case of illegal content. Therefore, castLabs expressly declares that such sites accessed by links were free of illegal content at the time the links were created. CastLabs has no influence whatsoever on the current and future design, or on the content of linked sites that are altered after the links are created. This applies to all links on castLabs’s own Internet site, as well as to postings made by users of guest books, discussion boards or mailing lists provided by castLabs. Only the provider of the Internet site to which reference is made, and not the provider who merely refers to such a site by means of links, shall be liable for illegal, incorrect or incomplete content, and particularly for damage resulting from the use or ignorance of such information.
No warranties and limitation of liability
This website is provided “as is” without any representations or warranties, express or implied. castLabs makes no representations or warranties in relation to this website or the information and materials provided on this website.
Without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing paragraph, castLabs does not warrant that:
- this website will be constantly available, or available at all; or
- the information on this website is complete, true, accurate or non-misleading.
Nothing on this website constitutes, or is meant to constitute, advice of any kind.
castLabs makes no guarantees whatsoever for the topicality, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims against castLabs regarding damage caused by the use or ignorance of any information provided, including any information which is incorrect or incomplete, are therefore excluded, insofar as there is no evidence of willful intent or gross negligence on the part of castLabs. castLabs expressly reserves the right to edit, expand or delete sections of pages, or the entire publication, or to suspend publication temporarily or permanently, without separate announcement.
These limitations of liability apply even if castLabs has been expressly advised of the potential loss.
The user hereby indemnifies castLabs and undertakes to keep castLabs indemnified against any losses, damages, costs, liabilities and expenses (including without limitation legal expenses and any amounts paid by castLabs to a third party in settlement of a claim or dispute on the advice of castLabs legal advisers) incurred or suffered by castLabs arising out of any breach by the user of any provision of these terms and conditions.
Breaches of these terms and conditions
Without prejudice to castLabs’ other rights under these terms and conditions, in case of breach these terms and conditions in any way, castLabs may take such action as castLabs deems appropriate to deal with the breach, including suspending user’s access to the website, prohibiting the user from accessing the website, blocking computers using IP address from accessing the website, contacting user’s internet service provider to request that they block user’s access to the website and/or bringing court proceedings against the user.
If a provision of these terms and conditions is determined by any court or other competent authority to be unlawful and/or unenforceable, the other provisions will continue in effect. If any unlawful and/or unenforceable provision would be lawful or enforceable if part of it were deleted, that part will be deemed to be deleted, and the rest of the provision will continue in effect.
These terms and conditions, together with “Castlabs’ Privacy and cookies policy” constitute the entire agreement between the user and castLabs in relation to the use of this website, and supersede all previous agreements in respect of the use of this website.
