Limitations of Liability

The contents found on our pages were created with great care. However, while Gilead Sciences GmbH strives to keep the Website up-to-date at all times, it specifically does not guarantee that such contents is accurate or exhaustive.

Pursuant to § 7 (1) of the Telemedia Act, we are responsible as the service provider for any of our own content on these pages subject to applicable law. Under §§ 8 through 10 of the Telemedia Act, however, we are not obligated as service provider to monitor transmitted or stored third-party information or to probe such information for circumstances indicating unlawful activity. Our obligations to remove or block the use of information under applicable law are not affected. However, no liability arises in such regard until we have knowledge of a specific violation of law. Once such violations of law have become known, we will promptly remove the content in question.

Gilead Sciences GmbH bears unlimited liability if and to the extent that damages were caused by an intentional or grossly negligent breach of duty attributable to Gilead Sciences GmbH or its legal representatives or (vicarious) agents. Furthermore, Gilead Sciences GmbH is liable for the slightly negligent violation of cardinal obligations – i.e., those whose violation place the object of the agreement in jeopardy, whose proper fulfilment is a prerequisite of the agreement’s implementation and on whose observation the user typically relies. In such a case, however, Gilead Sciences GmbH’s liability is limited to foreseeable damages typically associated with the agreement. Gilead Sciences GmbH does not bear liability for the slightly negligent breach of duties other than those mentioned in this paragraph. The foregoing limitations of liability do not apply to injuries to life, body and health, nor to fraudulently concealed defects.

Liability for Links

Offers found on the Websites contain links to external, third-party websites, the contents of which Gilead Sciences has no means of influencing. As a result, Gilead Sciences GmbH cannot assume any responsibility for such third-party contents or their compliance with data-protection regulations. Instead, responsibility for the contents of any linked pages rests with the relevant service provider. When links of this nature were included, the pages in question were checked for potential violations of law. No unlawful content was discerned at such time. Monitoring the contents of linked pages on an ongoing basis when there is no concrete indication that applicable law was violated would amount to an unreasonable burden. Accordingly, Gilead Sciences GmbH will promptly remove such links if and when relevant violations of law become known.
