Terms and conditions of use

The use of the websites of Belden Electronics GmbH (hereinafter referred to as "Belden") is exclusively governed by the following provisions. Hereby, Belden reserves the right to adapt the websites as well as the general terms and conditions of use in compliance with legal and in-house requirements without any special notice being necessary. It is therefore the user's responsibility to inform himself regularly about potential alterations.

Any information in Belden's websites is subject to copyright. Unless permitted expressly duplication, processing, alteration and/or dissemination of such information against payment is only allowed after Belden's prior express consent in writing.

All so-called brands are Belden's property, unless they are expressly marked with third party's rights. The unauthorized use of those brands is prohibited and constitutes a violation of copyrights, trademark rights or any other protective rights.

The information published in the websites has been compiled as carefully as possible. It is subject to alteration without notice in technical as well as in price-related/commercial respect. Mandatory information can only be obtained by a concrete query.

When information, software and / or documentations are relinquished free of charge, liability for false or legally deficient information, software and documentations, especially with respect to their correctness, presentation without errors, non-violation of third parties' protective rights and copyrights, completeness and/or usability - except for intent or gross negligence - is excluded, unless liability is imperatively demanded by law. Compensation for the violation of substantial contractual obligations, however, is limited to the contractually typical, predictable damage, unless it is caused by intent or gross negligence.

Belden makes a tremendous effort to keep its websites virus-free. However, a guarantee cannot be given. It is the users' responsibility to provide for reasonable precautions and virus scanners.

As far as hyperlinks to third parties' websites are concerned, Belden cannot accept any liability for the contents there nor does it accept them.

Should the buyer be a businessman, the sole venue is Cologne. German material law applies to the contractual relationships.
