Gender notice
We want to address men and women equally with our texts and content. To make my texts easier to read, we use either the feminine or masculine form of personal nouns. The reason: the use of both forms in the text is at the expense of easy and quick readability, we don’t like the ‘Binnen-I’, we also do not like ‘_ ‘(underscore) and‘ / ’(slash) in words. That is why we chose this approach.

Liability notice and links
We check all links to external websites, but assume no responsibility for their functionality, completeness, correctness and topicality. The contents of this website are created to the best of our knowledge. There is no claim to completeness, functionality, topicality, quality and correctness and therefore no liability is assumed.

The prerequisite for this is that the customer notifies BRASCOM immediately of the assertion of such a claim, grants it the power to independently defend against the claim and its settlement, provide all available information at its own expense and provide it with all support and power of attorney to defend it granted such a claim and did not settle such legal disputes by way of settlement without the prior consent of BRASCOM.

You undertake to use, exploit or pass on to third parties such confidential information only with the express written consent of the other contracting party outside of the contractual relationship.

The confidentiality obligation does not apply to information which the other contracting party has demonstrably received or received from third parties, or which was already generally known at the time the contract was concluded or subsequently became generally known without the publication being based on a violation of this confidentiality agreement.

This obligation remains for both parties even after termination of the contract for a further two years from the end of its term.
