Date Protection & Legal

Data protection
Personal data and all of the information and payment data required for running the image database is stored. This data may be assessed and evaluated for the purpose of internal analysis, but will nevertheless be treated in a strictly confidential manner and not passed on to third parties. Photographers offering images for sale through Sodapix may be given as references by Sodapix for advertising purposes.

Non-liability and Copyright
The copyright for all sites of the website is at the Sodapix AG. Texts and pictures may not used or copied in another relationship. All liability claims are excluded for information from contents of these websitse as well as for the direct or indirect use of these websites or the offered pictorial material. Changes at contents, prices and offers are at any time possible. Technical or typographic errors cannot be excluded despite extreme care.

All images and graphics as well as related arrangements are subject to copyright and to laws for the protection of intellectual property. Unless otherwise indicated, all images must be taken from the image database at and may in no way be copied, stored, distributed or processed without the consent of the licensor.

Note on websites to which links are provided

According to general laws, Sodapix AG, as a provider of content, is liable for its «own content», which it keeps ready for use. A distinction must be made between Sodapix AG’s own content and the links to content kept ready by other providers. Sodapix AG is thus only liable for this outside content if Sodapix AG has definite knowledge of it (i.e. also of illegal or punishable content) and if it is technically feasible for and also reasonable to expect Sodapix AG to prevent this content from being used.

Links are always «living» (dynamic) cross-references. When the links are initially being created, Sodapix AG checks the outside content to see if it may be becoming criminally or civilly liable as a result. However, Sodapix AG is not obliged to check on a permanent basis the content to which a link is provided in its website, for changes which could be used a reason for making Sodapix AG liable. Only when Sodapix AG discovers or its attention is drawn to the fact that a concrete offer to which it has created a link makes it liable in civil or criminal law will Sodapix AG remove the link in question, insofar as this is technically feasible and it is reasonable to expect Sodapix AG to do so. The technical feasibility and reasonableness are not affected by the fact that, once the link has been removed from Sodapix AG’s homepage, the illegal or punishable content can still be accessed via other servers.
