The IU Group N.V. (hereafter IU Group), holding company behind IU International University of Applied Sciences, is a private university group. The IU Group strives to keep its website up to date, accurate and complete. Nevertheless, and despite careful processing of information, it cannot be entirely ruled out that errors occur.
The IU Group reserves the right not to be responsible for the topicality, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims against the IU Group, which refer to material or immaterial nature caused by use or disuse of the information or the use of incorrect or incomplete information are excluded, unless the IU Group is not intentional or grossly negligent fault. All offers are subject to change and non-binding. Parts of the pages or the complete publication including all offers and information might be extended, changed or partly or completely deleted by the IU Group without separate announcement.
The IU Group would like to point out that the information provided on its website is for non-binding information purposes only and does not constitute legal advice in the strict sense. The contents of its website - especially the legal articles - are researched with the utmost care. Nevertheless, the IU Group cannot assume any liability for the correctness, completeness and topicality of the information provided. The content of the presented offers cannot and is not intended to replace individual and binding advice that addresses the specific situation of the individual. In this respect, all information offered is without guarantee of correctness and completeness.
In its judgement dated 12 May 1998, Hamburg Local Court determined that by creating a link, one becomes jointly responsible for the content of the linked page. According to the Local Court, this can only be prevented by explicitly distancing oneself from this content.
IU Group has created links on its websites. These references to third-party websites, which are outside the sphere of responsibility of IU Group, would only result in liability in the event that IU Group had knowledge of the content, and that it would have been technically possible and reasonable to prevent the use of the third-party websites in the event of illegal content.
IU Group hereby explicitly declares that there was no illegal content on the corresponding linked websites at the time when the links were created. IU Group has no influence whatsoever over the current and future design and content of the linked websites. IU Group therefore hereby explicitly distances itself from the content of linked websites that are changed after the links are created. This stipulation applies to all links and references created within our own online services, as well as for third-party entries in the guestbooks, discussion forums and mailing lists set up by IU Group.
Liability for illegal, inaccurate or incomplete content, and in particular for losses resulting from the use or non-use of such information, lies exclusively with the provider of the website to which the link leads, and not with the one who only refers to the respective publication via links.
In all of its publications, IU Group endeavours to comply with the copyrights for the graphics, sound files, video clips and texts used, to use objects it has created itself, or to utilise licence-free graphics, sound files, video clips and texts. All trademarks and brand names mentioned within the online services, which may be protected by third parties, are subject without restriction to the provisions of the respectively applicable trademark law and the property rights of the respective registered owners. The mere fact of being mentioned should not permit the assumption, that the trademarks are not protected by third-party rights.
The copyright for published objects created or commissioned by IU Group itself is retained solely by IU Group and the company from which it was commissioned. The duplication or use of such graphics, sound files, video clips and texts in other electronic or print publications is not permitted without the explicit permission of IU Group and the companies involved. The layout of the homepage, the graphics and images used, the collection and individual articles are protected by copyright.
This disclaimer should be considered part of the online services from which a reference is made to this page. Where parts or individual formulations of this text do not or no longer fully correspond to the applicable legal situation, the remaining parts of the document shall remain unaffected in their meaning and validity.
In case of disputes with IU Group, the EU Commission's online dispute resolution platform: www.ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr would be responsible. However, IIU Group declines to participate in dispute resolution proceedings.
The IU Group always addresses its educational and service offerings to all genders. In order to ensure better readability and comprehensibility, the masculine form of persons is used, but in principle care is taken to use neutral terms such as "students" (instead of "female and male students").
