Content of the online offer
Österreichische Fachhochschul-Konferenz (FHK) accepts no responsibility for the topicality, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims against Österreichische Fachhochschul-Konferenz (FHK) , which refer to damages of a material or non-material nature caused by the use or non-use of the information provided or by the use of incorrect and incomplete information, are fundamentally excluded, insofar as there is no demonstrable intentional or grossly negligent fault on the part of Österreichische Fachhochschul-Konferenz (FHK). All offers are subject to change and non-binding. Österreichische Fachhochschul-Konferenz (FHK) expressly reserves the right to change, supplement or delete parts of the pages or the entire offer without prior notice or to cease publication temporarily or permanently.

References and links
In the case of direct or indirect references to external websites, so-called "links", which lie outside the area of responsibility of the Austrian Conference of Universities of Applied Sciences (FHK), a liability obligation would only come into force if the Austrian Conference of Universities of Applied Sciences (FHK) had knowledge of the content and if it was technically possible and reasonable for the FHK to prevent use in the case of illegal content. Österreichische Fachhochschul-Konferenz (FHK) hereby expressly declares that at the time the links were created, the corresponding linked pages were free of illegal content. Österreichische Fachhochschul-Konferenz (FHK) has no influence on the current and future design, content or authorship of the linked pages. For this reason, the Austrian Conference of Universities of Applied Sciences (FHK) hereby expressly distances itself from all contents of all linked pages that were changed after the link was created. This statement applies to all links and references set within the own internet offer as well as to external entries in services set up by the company such as guest books, discussion forums, mailing lists and the like. Liability for illegal, incorrect or incomplete content and in particular for damages arising from the use or non-use of such information lies solely with the provider of the page to which reference is made, and not with the person who merely refers to the respective publication via links.
