Hartmann®, Vivano® and Hydrofilm® are trademarks of PAUL HARTMANN AG. Product names which are registered trademarks may not have been specifically designated as such in every case.


Despite careful examination, a liability for the accuracy of the information presented in the case studies and responses from the experts cannot be assumed on the part of PAUL HARTMANN AG. All reports reflect the opinion of the individual author which is not necessarily in line with the opinion of PAUL HARTMANN AG. The authors are responsible for the information given in their reports. 
Prior to use of our products be sure to read the entire product leaflet carefully, in particular the instructions for use. The information in the case studies and responses of the experts do not constitute a recommendation for a certain treatment or application, nor shall it be construed as a medical advice in any way.
There is no guarantee that the results of the case studies are reproducible in comparable cases. Every patient’s case has to be evaluated and examined by a physician who has to decide about the appropriate treatment.
Insofar as in the case studies and responses of the experts applications are mentioned, this does not involve any (express or implied) guarantee or responsibility on the part of PAUL HARTMANN AG in respect of any forms of application stated herein. Every user is requested to examine carefully the product leaflet and to check, if necessary in consultation with a physician or specialist, whether the applications mentioned therein differ from the statements made in the case studies and responses of the experts. Every form of application used is entirely at the userʼs own risk and responsibility.
The case studies contain information about products which may not be available in any given country. Furthermore, the products may not have received approval or market clearance by a governmental regulatory body for different indications for use.

Liability for Content
The contents of the website of PAUL HARTMANN AG are provided with greatest of care. However, no guarantee can be given for the correctness, completeness and currency of content. As a service provider PAUL HARTMANN AG is responsible for its own contents on this website in accordance with the general laws.
PAUL HARTMANN AG is not obligated to monitor third party information that is provided or stored or to search for circumstances that indicate any infringement of laws.
Any obligation to remove or block the usage of information in accordance with the general laws remains unaffected. No liability in this respect shall arise prior to the actual knowledge of any infringement of laws. We will remove such content without undue delay upon becoming aware of the infringement.

Liability for Hyperlinks
The website of PAUL HARTMANN AG contains links to external websites of third parties, on whose contents PAUL HARTMANN AG does not have any influence. Therefore, we cannot be held responsible for any such third party content.
Only the relevant third party provider or operator is responsible for the content of linked websites. At the time the links were placed the content of linked websites was examined for possible infringements of law. Infringements of laws were not recognizable at the time the links were placed. Permanent control of the linked websites is not feasible without any specific indication of infringements. We will remove such links without undue delay as soon as we become aware of any infringement.
