Although the greatest care has been taken in compiling the information and programs contained on this website, we cannot guarantee their accuracy. The information contained may be changed without prior notice. We do not enter into any obligations with it.

In no event shall we be liable for any damages of any kind arising out of or in connection with the use of the information provided herein, whether direct, indirect, consequential, or special damages, including lost profits, or damages resulting from lost data. We reserve the right to make changes to the information on this server, which we provide without obligation, without prior notice.

Notice to rights holders[edit]

The website provider points out on all input pages not to use any material that is subject to copyrights of third parties. However, given the very large number of electronic and, above all, written publications available in German, it cannot rule out the possibility that users may nevertheless submit material that infringes existing intellectual property rights and that is not immediately recognized as such.

If the provider is notified of a corresponding copyright infringement, the material in question will be removed from the server immediately. The official contact persons for such cases are the macwrench administrators.

The notification should accurately identify the affected content in |macwrench (please include URL) and also name your publication or website from which the material was unauthorizedly taken.

Data from external sources[edit]

On some macwrench pages, information exists that is incorporated via feeds provided by third parties for this purpose - for example, the latest Apple updates on the main page. This information is provided with an acknowledgement of the source. The following disclaimer applies to this content:

  • The provider - i.e. macwrench - does not adopt these contents as its own
  • The data are subject to the appropriate license as well as the copyrights of those who provide these data
  • The provider cannot guarantee their correctness and completeness, although the sources have been carefully selected based on their credibility
  • As a result, the provider cannot be held liable for any damages resulting from the use of or in connection with the use of this information, whether direct or indirect damages, consequential damages or special damages, including lost profits, or damages resulting from the loss of data.

In case of questions and complaints about as well as problems with this information, one of the administrators should be informed, if necessary.


The above information is usually updated continuously at intervals of 4 hours. This is done exclusively for reasons of speed for the presentation on the page and is not due to any kind of evaluation of the sources or a targeted selection of the information. For technical and optical reasons, it is possible that not all entries of an integrated news ticker are presented - this is - depending on the scope of the sources - not always feasible due to the amount of available information alone. For this reason, the number of entries is limited to a fixed amount, currently to 10. Thus, always the 10 most recent entries of such an included news source are presented. We reserve the right to vary this value at any time and without notice.

Within the scope of this, however, we do not knowingly make any changes to the user data.

However, it is possible that the information is not updated or not displayed correctly for technical reasons - for example, due to software malfunctions, conversions in character sets or syntactical errors in the source material. In such cases, the malfunctions must be reported to one of the Administrators so that the error can be corrected accordingly.
