Legal information

On 12th May 1998, Hamburg regional court decided that, when links to external sites are created, joint responsibility is to be taken for the content of the linked site, if applicable.  According to the regional court, this can only be prevented by express dissociation from this content.

The links to external suppliers that feature on these pages were created to the best of our knowledge and belief. When setting up the links, attention was paid to the trustworthiness of each supplier. Case-by-case examination of all content is not possible in each instance. We therefore expressly dissociate ourselves from all of the content of all linked sites and we do not endorse the external content. We ask users to immediately draw our attention to any unlawful content on the linked sites.

Programs are downloaded at the user’s own risk. Hauck Hong Kong Ltd. undertakes no liability for damages that may result while downloading files and/or during installation (including files from external sites). By saving files, you alone are responsible for handling these files correctly. Hauck Hong Kong Ltd. indicates that the appearance of computer viruses cannot be ruled out, even if you perform a virus scan. Hauck Hong Kong Ltd. undertakes no liability for failures of the internet, damage by third parties, imported files of all kinds (viruses, worms, macro viruses, Trojan horses, diallers or spyware) or links to and from other websites.  Hauck Hong Kong Ltd. recommends that all users use the latest anti-virus software.

Under no circumstances does Hauck Hong Kong Ltd. undertake liability towards you or third parties for direct, indirect, special or other consequential damages that result from the use of this website or a website linked to this website, including downloading files. Any liability for loss of profit, business interruption or loss of programs or other data in your information systems is also excluded.

The firm Hauck Hong Kong Ltd., as operator, accepts no responsibility for the topicality, accuracy, completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims against Hauck Hong Kong Ltd. that relate to material or non-material damages that were caused by the use or failure to use the information provided or by the use of incorrect or incomplete information are fundamentally excluded, providing that there is no demonstrable intentional or grossly negligent fault on the behalf of the firm Hauck (Schweiz). All offers are subject to change and non-binding. The firm Hauck Hong Kong Ltd. expressly reserves the right to change, supplement or delete parts of pages or the entire website or to suspend them/it, temporarily or permanently, without separate notification.

This disclaimer is to be considered as part of the internet presence. If parts or individual phrasings of this text do not correspond, no longer correspond or do not entirely correspond with the valid legal position, the validity of all remaining text content shall not be affected by this.

Data protection
Every time a user accesses a Hauck Hong Kong Ltd. webpage and every time any file is retrieved, data concerning this procedure is saved in a log file. This data is not personalised, so we cannot deduce which user has retrieved which data. In detail, the following data set is saved for every retrieval:

File name


Amount of data transferred

Status notification of transfer

Web browser used

Operating system used

The IP address of the computer, from which the request was sent, is not saved.

User profiles related to individual users can therefore not be created. The data saved is only evaluated for further development of the presence for the editorial department of the “Sicherheit im Internet” online security initiative. Data is not forwarded to third parties, either for commercial or for non-commercial purposes. This site does not use cookies. No other technology that tracks users’ access behaviour is used.

Additional services such as site recommendation and e-cards are the exception. In the case of these services, it is necessary to save the information given for 6 months, on the one hand for internal statistical purposes and, on the other, to make this service possible and to prevent and/or punish abuse. This data is then deleted afterwards, unless this is against the user’s wishes.

These webpages use plugins from the social network, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (Facebook).

When you retrieve pages from our internet presence that have this kind of plugin, a connection is made to the Facebook servers and, in the course of this, the plugin is shown on the webpage by communicating with your browser. As a result of this, information about which of our webpages you have visited is sent to the Facebook servers. If you are logged in as a Facebook user, Facebook assigns this information to your personal Facebook user account. When you use the plugin functions (e.g. clicking the “Like” button or posting a comment), this information is also matched to your Facebook account, something that you can only prevent by logging out before using the plugin.

More detailed information about collection and use of data through Facebook, about your rights in relation to this and options for protecting your privacy can be found in Facebook’s privacy notice.
