The Suppliers Guide “Technical Textiles Germany” is the intellectual property of the service company of IVGT, TreuTex GmbH, Mainzer Landstraße 55, D-60329 Frankfurt am Main. The textile database is the intellectual property of IVGT. Any use other than researching producers and products, in particular the copying of the structure of the databases is prohibited.

Use of the databases:

Users may within the framework of these conditions of use read the information contained in the databases electronically and may print a copy thereof. Any other measures, in particular the automatic search of scripts or circumvention of the search frame via search software are not permitted. The user is not entitled to use the data researched completely, partly or as an excerpt to construct his own database or for commercial information purposes of third parties or any other commercial purpose.

The user is not allowed to link the databases or single elements thereof with other databases via links, integration measures or in any other way.

Information on liability:

The liability is unlimited also for the same group of persons, if in the case of negligence the life, the body or the health of the user is harmed. The same holds true in the case of the violation of essential contractual obligations. In all other cases of violations of obligations by minor negligence the liability is limited to typical damages to be expected by a violation of duties causing material or pecuniary damage.
