Information on professional liability insurance
ASGB Revisions- und Treuhand GmbH Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft maintains the professional liability insurance required under Section 54 of the Public Auditors Act [WPO] with HDI Versicherung AG, HDI-Platz 1, 30659 Hanover. The geographical scope of the insurance cover is not limited.
The texts on this website do not constitute legal advice. If legal advice is requested, the establishment of a client relationship is a prerequisite. If free contents or services are made available on the website, these are legally non-binding preliminary offers which merely call for the submission of an offer by the user and do not themselves constitute a binding offer to conclude a contract.
In accordance with § 7 para. 1 of the German Telemedia Act (TMG), the person responsible for the website within the meaning of § 5 TMG is responsible for his own information which he makes available for use in accordance with the general laws. The person responsible for the aforementioned website assumes no liability for the topicality, correctness and completeness of the content made available on this website. This does not apply if the responsible person can be accused of intentional or grossly negligent behaviour. The contents were created with the greatest possible care. Nevertheless, the accuracy of the content cannot be guaranteed, especially in the case of complex topics, so that the person responsible recommends the user to ask the responsible authorities for important information or to make use of legal advice.
According to §§ 8 ff. TMG, the website operator is not responsible for third-party content that he publishes, if
1. he has no knowledge of the unlawful act or the information and in the case of claims for damages no facts or circumstances are known to him from which the unlawful act or the information becomes obvious, or
2. he has taken immediate action to remove the information or to block access to it as soon as he has gained such knowledge.
If the website operator becomes aware of such illegal content, it will be removed immediately.
The website operator links from his website to external websites. Through these so-called "hyperlinks", the user is directed towards the external website. The website operator has no influence whatsoever on the information on the external website. Therefore no liability can be assumed for the topicality, correctness and completeness of the contents of the external website. However, the website operator assures that he was not aware of any legal infringements at the time the link was set and that he checked the external website within reasonable limits. If the website operator becomes aware of the illegality of the linked content, the corresponding link will be removed immediately.
Please send any comments on incorrect information or links, suggestions and criticism to firstname.lastname@example.org.
