By using the contents of the www.vitaphone.de website you accept the Terms and Conditions of Use specified below.


The contents of www.vitaphone.de are designed solely for the purpose of informing the visitors, and cannot replace any personal examination, consultation and treatment by a licensed physician. In any specific individual case, our services cannot make proposals for therapies or provide any remote diagnosis. They are meant to be non-individualised and non-binding, but well-founded, information of experts facilitating the communication between patients and physicians. www.vitaphone.de requests that all users with health problems always visit a physician in case of need. The contents of www.vitaphone.de cannot and may not be used for the generation of independent diagnoses or for the selection, application, discontinuation or change of treatment methods or pharmaceuticals. For this purpose, always contact your physician or pharmacist.


The information on health products and therapies of any type provided on the pages only serve the purpose of informing customers. We recommend always asking a physician or a pharmacist prior to purchase or application.


Vitaphone GmbH points out that, through the use of our pages, no contractual relationship, particularly no consultancy agreement, is entered into.
If a contractual relationship should nevertheless come into force, no liability is assumed for damages that are not based on a violation of a material contractual obligation (so-called "cardinal obligations") or an intentional or grossly negligent violation of an obligation by Vitaphone GmbH or one of its vicarious agents. These limitations are not valid for claims arising from product liability or for liability for injuries to body or health or the loss of life that is attributable to Vitaphone GmbH.


The contents of the Internet presence provided by Vitaphone GmbH are subject to German copyright law. Contributions of other authors are characterised as such. Without written approval of the particular author, contents may not be copied, processed or dispersed outside of the limits of copyright law. Copies and downloads of contents from www.vitaphone.de are permitted only for private use, and not for commercial use.


Our contents are generated by health experts, and are examined and updated in appropriate intervals. In particular, due to the complexity and rapid development of the subject matter, we can assume no guarantee, however, for the completeness, correctness and timeliness of all the contents of our pages.

In accordance with § 7, para. 1 TMG (Telemediengesetz, German Telemedia Act), we are responsible for own contents on these pages under the general laws. However, under §§ 8 to 10 TMG, as a service provider we are not obligated to monitor transmitted or stored external information or to search for facts that refer to an illegal act. This does not affect the obligation under the general laws to remove or block the use of information. However, any liability in this area is possible only from the point in time of gaining knowledge of a specific violation of the law. As soon as Vitaphone GmbH becomes aware of a violation of the law, it shall immediately remove all relevant contents.

The Internet platform of Vitaphone GmbH contains links to Internet offers of third parties, on the contents of which Vitaphone GmbH has no influence. As such, Vitaphone GmbH cannot assume any guarantee for such outside content. Rather, the respective vendor or operator of the linked site is always responsible for its contents. At the point in time of linking, Vitaphone GmbH examined the linked sites for possible violations of the law. At the point in time of linking, such were not identifiable. Without specific evidence for possible legal violations, the continued monitoring of the contents of the linked sites is not reasonable. As soon as Vitaphone GmbH learns of any legal violation, it shall immediately remove the links in connection therewith.

To the extent that information is characterised as promotion or advertising, such contents were made available to Vitaphone GmbH from the advertising company. As such, the latter is responsible for the contents in question.

Despite careful examination of the advertising, Vitaphone GmbH assumes no guarantee for completeness, correctness and timeliness. As soon as Vitaphone GmbH becomes aware of any legal violation, it shall immediately remove the corresponding promotion or advertising.


If an individual provision of these Terms and Conditions of Use is or becomes ineffective, the effectiveness of the remaining provisions is not affected thereby. The ineffective provision is to be replaced by an effective provision that corresponds to the meaning and purpose of the ineffective provision.
