Exclusion of liability

Online content
Liability-based claims against the BNW relating to damage of material or immaterial nature caused by the use or failure to use the available information or by the use of incorrect and incomplete information are generally excluded, unless the BNW is shown to have caused the damage intentionally or through gross negligence.
All offers made are non-binding and subject to confirmation. BNW expressly reserves the right to amend, supplement or delete parts of the website or the entire online content without notice or to temporarily or permanently suspend its publication.

References and links
For third-party websites that refer to, the providers concerned shall be responsible. It is possible that other providers may refer to the webpages of BNW. We are not responsible for the representations and content of third-party webpages.
With direct or indirect links to external websites (‘hyperlinks’) that are outside the sphere of responsibilities of the BNW, the BNW will incur liability only if the BNW is aware of the content and has the technical means and can be reasonably expected to prevent the use in case of unlawful content.

The BNW herewith expressly declares that no illegal content appeared on the linked pages at the time the links were inserted. The BNW has no influence over the current and future design, content or copyright of the linked/connected pages. For this reason, the BNW herewith expressly distances itself from all content on the linked/connected pages that was changed after the links were inserted. This declaration applies to all links and references placed within their own Internet content.

Copyright and trade marks
The BNW strives to respect copyright in the graphic illustrations, sound recordings, video sequences and texts used, and to use graphic illustrations, sound recordings, video sequences and texts prepared by themselves or resort to licence-free graphic illustrations, sound recordings, video sequences and texts in all publications. All copyright and trade marks mentioned as part of the website content and possibly protected by third parties are subject without limitation to the provisions of the respective trade mark laws and property rights of the registered owners concerned. The mere mention on this website does not justify the assumption that trade marks are not protected by third-party rights!

The copyright for items created by the Training Institute itself remain solely with the author of the pages. The reproduction or use of such graphic illustrations, sound recordings, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications without the express consent of BNW is prohibited.

Legal validity of this liability exclusion

This exclusion of liability must be seen as part of the Internet content from which reference was made to this page. If parts or individual phrases of this text do not comply with the applicable laws in total or in part or any longer, the content and validity of the remaining parts of the document shall not be affected.

We are committed to the protection of your personal data and inform you in the section below about the treatment of your data.

Collection and processing of personal data
As a rule, you can visit the website of BNW without having to disclose any personal data to us.
