Denial of liability and protection of privacy
The following provisions apply to all services, advice and data media of the CASE (Council of American States in Europe) with its administrative office based in Frankfurt, Germany.
All users shall be assumed to have taken note of, understood and implicitly accepted these provisions and submit to them.
1.1. General data media
CASE exercises the utmost care in choosing its sources so as to provide, as far as possible, information that is reliable, complete and up-to-date in its various data media (websites, publications, leaflets, etc.).
If CASE were to detect errors or if errors were pointed out to it, it would ensure that these were corrected as quickly as possible. However, neither the Organization nor any of its members assume any responsibility whatsoever for the accuracy and quality of these data and this information. It should also be pointed out the CASE is not responsible for the information or any of the links that appear on each individual state pages within the CASE website.
These data media:
- are not necessarily complete, exhaustive, accurate or up-to-date;
- refer if necessary to external sources over which CASE has no control;
- in no way constitute an expert opinion on the subject in question.
1.2. Personalized information and advice services
CASE endeavors to provide personalized information and advice services with all the professionalism and seriousness one might expect of it. However, the quality of these services depends directly on elements of information and assessment that are beyond the control of the CASE. Neither it nor any of its members can therefore be held responsible for the accuracy and quality of the information and advice provided.
1.3. Use of information by the customer
CASE can neither control nor influence the way in which the customer uses or understands the information it has provided. As a result, CASE shall in no way be held responsible for damage, be it direct, indirect, accidental or specific, of any kind whatsoever (loss of earnings, loss of opportunity, damage caused by negligence or forgetfulness, writing, interpretation, reference and distribution) caused by or related to knowledge or use of the available information.
1.4. Availability of information
CASE attempts wherever possible to avoid technical difficulties in the provision of its information and advice. It cannot be held responsible for damage or losses which may arise out of possible disturbances or interruptions to or errors in the provision of this information and advice (interruption to work, damage to programs or equipment, etc.); any request for financial compensation is therefore ruled out.
