3. Applications and services

3.1 interface projects GmbH provides a platform where notified bodies and certification bodies can upload and manage their certificates and services. These are made available on the websites in point 1.1. Users can view information on certificates, holders or validity periods and check their validity.

3.2 The information offered is not legally binding within the meaning of § 145 BGB (German Civil Code) but serves only as a means of improving transparency between the consumer and the certification body. Binding information on the authenticity of certificates or deeds requires a direct inquiry to the notified body.

4. Right to adjustments and cancellation of the service

7. Liability

7.1 interface Projects GmbH shall not be liable for the topicality, correctness, completeness or quality of the contents provided by the Certification Authorities or for the type, scope and quality of the certificates or services presented. interface projects GmbH neither checks the contents provided by the certifiers nor does it adopt them as its own.

7.2 All applications, services and directly connected systems (catalogues, databases, etc.) are operated independently of offers from the certifiers. interface projects GmbH shall therefore not be liable for the contents and technical design of external certifiers or third parties to which links may be established or whose offers are part of their own applications, services or services but are not part of interface projects GmbH.

In the event of a breach of an essential contractual obligation, damages shall be limited to the foreseeable damage typical for the contract.
