1. Providing general data and information

RWE makes every effort to ensure that the information and data contained on its websites or newsletter are correct. A liability or guarantee for the timeliness, accuracy and completeness of the information and data provided - in particular for displayed price information - is excluded. RWE reserves the right to make changes or additions to the information or data provided without notice.
The information in the newsletter or on the websites contain forward-looking statements. These statements reflect management's beliefs, expectations and assumptions at the time of their preparation and are based on information available to management at the time of its preparation. Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future results and developments and involve known and unknown risks and uncertainties. Therefore, actual future results and developments may differ materially from the expectations and assumptions expressed herein due to various factors. These factors include, in particular, changes in the general economic situation and the competitive situation. In addition, developments in the financial markets and exchange rate fluctuations, as well as national and international changes in legislation, particularly with respect to tax regulations, and other factors, may affect the future results and developments of RWE or any of its affiliates. Neither RWE nor its affiliate undertakes any obligation to update such statements.

Furthermore, RWE accepts no liability or guarantee for third-party websites, which are referred to by means of a hyperlink. RWE is not responsible for the content of such websites.


2. Registration, use and termination of the newsletter

RWE offers interested persons to subscribe to a newsletter. RWE thus offers the opportunity to receive regular information about the RWE shares and the RWE Group by e-mail. This offer is subject to the following terms and conditions, which are accepted by registering for the RWE newsletter.

RWE may change the Terms of Use for this voluntary offer in whole or in part at any time. In this case, the changed terms of use will be notified to the users via the e-mail address provided in the registration process. By further referring to the newsletter, the user's consent to the changed terms of use is deemed to have been granted, unless the user expressly objects. RWE draws particular attention to this approval effect in its change notification. If the user refuses to agree to the changed conditions of use, this will result in the user being deregistered from the newsletter subscription and not receiving another newsletter in the future.

A claim of the user on the newsletter service does not exist. RWE is entitled to temporarily suspend or discontinue the distribution of the newsletter at any time without prior notice.
The termination of the newsletter subscription is possible by the user at any time and without notice. To cancel the subscription, use the unsubscribe link in the newsletter.
Termination shall cause RWE to delete the personal data stored in accordance with the deadlines set internally. In the event of termination of the newsletter subscription, RWE will not send any further e-mails with newsletters.


3. Stock exchange data

The stock exchange data contained on the RWE websites and in the newsletter are provided by third parties. RWE is not liable for the topicality, correctness and completeness of the transmitted information and data. They merely provide the user with an overview of the RWE Group for information purposes, but no suggestion or solicitation to buy, sell or otherwise trade in securities. RWE shall not be liable for any direct or indirect damage, including lost profits, arising from the use of the information or data found on the RWE websites or in the newsletter.

Rights and obligations between RWE and the user of the websites or the newsletter or third parties are not substantiated by the provision of the stock exchange data.


4. Offers from partner companies

RWE cooperates with various partner companies and presents their offers on the RWE websites or in the newsletter. Users of the websites or the newsletter have the option of accessing the offer pages of the partner company via these offers and receiving services there. A contractual relationship is concluded exclusively with the partner company at the conditions stated by the partner company. The content of the offer and the design of the supply side are the sole responsibility of the partner company.


5. Liability

RWE endeavors to avoid technical disruptions concerning the sending of the newsletter and the provision of services offered under the RWE websites as far as possible. However, RWE assumes no responsibility for their availability or failure-free function. Furthermore, RWE shall not be liable for damages resulting from errors, delays or interruptions in the transmission, in the event of faults in the technical equipment and services, inaccurate contents, loss or deletion of data, viruses or in any other way when using the websites or the newsletter unless such damage is caused by RWE, its employees or vicarious agents intentionally or through gross negligence.

RWE also assumes no responsibility or liability that the services offered by the partner companies on the RWE websites or in the newsletter comply with the statutory provisions. Otherwise, RWE is not liable for the behavior of the partner companies.

Insofar as RWE itself offers services, the General Terms and Conditions of the respective service-providing RWE Group companies apply, which are available at the appropriate place.
Incidentally, RWE is liable - for whatever legal reason including tort - only

  • if RWE, its executive bodies or executives cause damage by gross negligence or intentionally or culpably violate a contractual obligation (cardinal obligation) in a manner that endangers the purpose of the contract, or
  • if other vicarious agents of RWE, who are not members of the executive bodies or executives, violate a contractual obligation (cardinal obligation) through gross negligence or intentionally in a manner that jeopardizes the purpose of the contract.

If RWE's organs or executives do not violate a cardinal obligation by gross negligence or intent, RWE is liable to a limited extent for such typical damages that were reasonably foreseeable at the time the contract was concluded. This limitation of liability also applies to the scope of damage.

The liability of RWE under the Product Liability Act and other mandatory statutory provisions remains unaffected by the above limitations of liability.

Otherwise, the liability of RWE is excluded. In particular, RWE shall not be liable for any direct or indirect damages, including lost profits, arising out of or otherwise in connection with any information or data provided on the RWE Websites or in the newsletter.
