Privacy Policy


By judgment of 12 May 1998 (312 0 85/98) the 12th Civil Division of the Regional Court in Hamburg decided that linking may result in joint responsibility for the contents of the linked website. According to the Regional Court, this can only be prevented by expressly dissociating oneself from such contents. We hereby expressly dissociate ourselves from the content and design of all linked sites. This declaration also applies to all links on the website and to all contents of sites connected by links or banners.


The contents and works of this website, which we, Binding Brauerei USA, Inc., 194 Main Street, Norwalk, CT 06851, have prepared with the utmost care, are subject to German copyright. Reproduction, adaptation, dissemination and exploitation of any kind require our written consent. No guarantee is given that the contents are accurate, complete and up-to-date.

Integration Of Third-Party Services And Contents

It is possible that third-party contents such as YouTube videos, maps provided by Google Maps, RSS feeds or charts from other websites are integrated with this website. This always presupposes that the providers of such contents (hereinafter referred to as “Third-Party Providers”) notice the user’s IP address because they could not send the contents to the browser of the user concerned without the IP address. Consequently, the IP address is required in order to display such contents. We endeavour to use only contents whose providers merely use the IP address to deliver the contents. However, it is beyond our control if Third-Party Providers store the IP address, e.g. for statistical purposes. In so far as we are aware thereof, we will inform the user.

On the other hand they serve to collect the statistical data of website use and to be able to analyse them in order to improve the website. Users can influence the use of cookies.
