1. Content of the Online Offering
Kunsthistorisches Museum mit Museum für Völkerkunde und Österreichischem Theatermuseum (“KHM”) will vouch for the correctness and accuracy of the website’s contents according to its best knowledge and belief. However, KHM is not liable for the topicality, correctness, completeness, or quality of the information supplied. Liability claims towards KHM referring to material or non-material damage resulting from the use or non-use of the information supplied, or from the use of incorrect or incomplete information, are generally excluded, provided that KHM cannot be blamed for having acted with intent or gross negligence.

All offers are non-binding and without obligation. KHM explicitly reserves the right to alter, complement, or delete parts of this website or the entire contents thereof without notice, or to discontinue publication either temporarily or permanently.

2. References and Links

KHM disclaims any liability for the contents provided by third parties that are referred to this website directly or indirectly ("links").

KHM has no influence whatsoever on the current or future design, contents, or authorship of linked websites. Thus, KHM herewith explicitly declines all responsibility for the entire contents of off-site or linked pages. This applies to all of the links and references supplied within KHM own online offering, as well as to third-party entries made in guest books, discussion forums, and mailing lists provided by KHM. The provider of a linked website bears sole responsibility for any illegal, incorrect, or incomplete information it may contain, and especially for the damage resulting from the use or non-use of such information, whereas the one who only refers to published information via links cannot be held responsible.

3. Copyright and Trademark Law
KHM makes a point of respecting the copyrights for texts, images, artworks, video sequences, and audio documents used in all of its publications, as well as of using texts, images, artworks, video sequences, and audio documents produced by KHM itself or its contract parties, or of referring to licence-free texts, images, artworks, video sequences, and audio documents.

All of the identification marks or logos displayed within the online offering and possibly protected by third parties are subject to the legal provisions of the respective trademark law in force and governed by the proprietary rights of the respective registered owner. The mere fact that a trademark, service mark, or logo is displayed does not suggest that it is not protected and that no titles of third parties are involved.
The copyright for published materials produced by KHM or its contract parties rests solely with KHM. Any reproduction or use of such artworks, audio documents, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed media without the explicit consent of KHM is strictly prohibited.

4. Data Protection
In cases where the online offering includes the option of entering personal or business data (e-mail addresses, names, postal addresses), such data is supplied by the user on a strictly voluntary basis.

By indicating their postal addresses or e-mail addresses, users agree (on a revocable basis) to receive requested information material (newsletter, postal mailings) from KHM by post and/or e-mail. Furthermore, users agree that the data supplied by them be collected and processed electronically.
This personal information will be used by KHM exclusively for the supply of services ordered by users, as well as for the announcement of dates, new events, programmes, online, and other services of KHM.
The data supplied by users will be handled in accordance with the provisions of the data protection law in force and is strictly confidential, unless it should become legally necessary to defend the legal titles or the property of KHM, or to protect the interests of other users.

5. Legal Effectiveness
This clause is part of the online offering referring to this page. In case parts of this text or individual phrases do not, no longer, or do not completely comply with the legal provisions in force, the contents of the remaining parts of this document and their validity will remain unaffected.
