Links to third parties
Liability for links
HUP offers can contain links to offers of third parties, on whose contents we have no influence. Therefore, we cannot assume any liability for these third-party contents. The respective provider or operator of the pages is always responsible for the content of the linked pages. The linked pages were checked for possible legal violations at the time of linking. Illegal contents were not recognizable at the time of linking.
However, a permanent control of the contents of the linked pages is not reasonable without concrete evidence of a violation of the law. If we become aware of any infringements, we will remove such links immediately.

If we use ideas, suggestions or recommendations (generally feedback) from you to improve our products and services, HUP will not be obligated to do so.

Should individual provisions of this contract be invalid or void in whole or in part or become invalid or void in whole or in part as a result of a change in the legal situation or as a result of supreme court rulings or in any other way, or should this contract contain any gaps, the parties agree that the remaining provisions of this contract shall remain unaffected and valid. In this case, the contracting parties undertake, taking into account the principle of good faith, to agree on a valid provision in place of the invalid provision which comes as close as possible to the meaning and purpose of the invalid provision and which it can be assumed that the parties would have agreed on at the time of conclusion of the contract if they had known or foreseen the invalidity or ineffectiveness. The same shall apply if this contract should contain a loophole.
