The use and limitations of liability concerning the website

Elo’s website (including the services available on the website) is published online without obligation and as is. Elo has endeavoured to thoroughly ensure the accuracy of its site content. The information on the site is, however, general in nature and, thus, Elo does not guarantee its applicability to all individual cases.

The user is liable for ensuring that no illegal or inappropriate materials are sent through Elo’s website or electronic services. The user shall ensure that any materials being sent are free from viruses or other damaging content.

Confidentiality cannot be guaranteed for messages (e.g., unprotected e-mail or chat service messages) that are sent over an open data network. If customers choose to send messages that contain confidential information to Elo via an unprotected connection, they do so at their own risk. Upon the customer’s request, Elo has the right to deliver, via e-mail, general information to the e-mail address specified by the customer. Elo is not liable for the online disclosure of information or for any resulting direct or indirect damages, if such information has been sent via an unprotected e-mail connection.
