In such cases, the special terms and conditions apply to the respective case in addition.

This website contains data and information of all kinds that falls under the protection of registered brands and/or copyright in favour of SHW AG or, in isolated cases, of third parties. For this reason, it is not permitted to download this website as a whole or parts of it, to copy it and/or disseminate it. It is, however, permitted to copy it for technical reasons for the purposes of browsing, provided this act does not serve any commercial purpose.

(3) SHW AG accepts liability for the contents of its website as required by the law. However, no warranty is made for the accuracy or completeness of the information contained on this website.

(4) This website contains forward-looking statements. These statements are based on expectations, market estimates and forecasts of the Management Board as well as the information currently available to the Board. In particular, the forward-looking statements should not be construed as warranties that the future trends and results mentioned will actually eventuate. Although the Management Board is convinced that the statements made and the underlying convictions and expectations are realistic, they are nevertheless based on assumptions that could turn out to be inaccurate. Future events and trends are dependent on a number of factors, risks and uncertainties that could lead to a need to adjust the expectations and estimates expressed here. These factors include, but are not limited to, changes in the general economic background or business environment, fluctuations in exchange rates and interest rates, a lack of acceptance for new products and services as well as changes in the business strategy.

The user will be instructed of such changes separately, provided he has registered. In the event that individual provisions of these terms and conditions are invalid, the validity of the other terms and conditions remains unaffected.
