The DFL Deutsche Fußball Liga GmbH (the “DFL”) appreciates your interest in and your visit to the internet site (the "Website") of the DFL at www.rookie-award.com.
1. Limit on liability
The content in this Website was produced with the greatest possible care. However, the DFL assumes no guarantee for the accuracy, completeness, timeliness or other quality of the provided content. The use of the content on the Website is at the User’s own risk. Contributions for which an author is named reflect the opinion of the respective author and not always the opinion of the DFL. The mere use of the Website does not establish a contractual relationship between the User and the DFL. Liability for damages, regardless of the legal basis and type, is excluded, unless the damages are based on intentional or grossly negligent misconduct.
2. Intellectual property, copyright and protective rights
All rights are reserved. The intellectual property contained on or in this Website is protected. The User is not granted any license to use or exploit the intellectual property of the DFL in this Website. Especially the content published on this Website, such as text, images, illustrations, sound, animation and videos as well as how they are ordered are subject to German copyright law and law protecting work product as well as other protective laws. Any use or exploitation which is not permitted by German copyright law or the law governing work product requires the prior written consent of the DFL or the respective holder of the right. This applies especially for reproduction, processing, translation, storage and repetition of content in data bases or other electronic media and systems. The production of copies and downloads is only permitted for personal, private and non-commercial use. The display of this Website in third party frames is only permissible with written permission. The User is instructed that the content in the Website is subject in part to third party copyrights. If the User learns about a violation of a right, the DFL requests corresponding notification.
3. Trademarks and marking rights
All trademarks and marks of the DFL mentioned or displayed in the services are protected by law. This applies especially for trademarks, logos and emblems. All other trademarks and marks of third parties mentioned or displayed in the services are fully subject to the provisions of the respective trademark and marking right of the respective holder. Simply naming or showing in particular does not mean that such brands and trademarks are not protected by rights of third parties.
4. References and links
The Website contains links to websites of third parties ("external links"). These websites are subject to the liability of the respective operator. The DFL examined the content of the third party when first establishing the external links with regard to whether there were any violations of law. There were no apparent violations of law at that time. The DFL has absolutely no influence on the current and future design and content of the linked pages. The setting of external links does not mean that the DFL has assumed responsibility for the content behind the link. Continuous monitoring of the external links is not reasonably possible for the DFL without having specific information about violations of law. Upon learning about violations of law, however, such external links will be deleted without undue delay.
5. Services of third parties
If goods or services are offered by third parties on the Website, the User must accept the contractual terms and conditions when ordering because the terms and conditions of contract of the third party apply exclusively for the contractual relationship between the User and the third party. It is especially possible to order goods and services from partners of the DFL through the Website or to participate in their contests and other actions. The DFL is exclusively active as an intermediary in these situations. The action as an intermediary will take place, e.g. using a link which is activated on the Website in the context of the offerings by the partners and which leads to the specific offer on the own website of the partners. Questions and complaints must accordingly be directed directly to the respective partner whose terms and conditions of contract apply for the respective order or participation.
