All copyright and other intellectual property rights in the design and content of this Website are and will remain the property of Containerships.

Excepted from this are specific instances in which we expressly direct or enable you to make commercial use of the Website (e.g. if we direct you to download specific forms or information). All other commercial uses, including duplication, modification and, in particular, dissemination in return for payment (on-selling), are prohibited.


Where we refer via links or hyperlinks to other websites or web pages, we assume no liability or responsibility for the privacy policies or the content of those pages. The links are provided solely for information or advertising purposes and in no way give rise to any legally binding obligations on the part of Containerships.


In so far as Containerships enables you to conclude contracts with Containerships via the Website, any such contracts concluded are governed exclusively by the relevant terms and conditions of business of Containerships. You can access these terms and conditions of business by clicking on a dedicated web link or by requesting them from Containerships – CMA CGM GmbH, Chilehaus A Fischertwiete 2, 20095 Hamburg, Germany. If Containerships transfers data electronically to you, you must immediately check the data for correctness. In the event of transmission errors, Containerships has the right to contest the validity of any incorrectly transmitted declarations of legal intent received by you from Containerships. Containerships constantly scans its data transfers for computer viruses. However, it is not possible to eliminate the risk that software owned or used by you may become infected by these data transfers if you fail to take appropriate countermeasures to protect your systems. Therefore, if you receive and store data which you have requested from Containerships, you do so entirely at your own risk. In particular, Containerships accepts no liability whatsoever for data in respect of which you have omitted to make back-up copies at regular intervals (at least once daily).


While the information provided via the Website is accurate and correct to the best of Containerships’ knowledge, it may nevertheless contain errors and inaccuracies. The information is provided “AS IS,” and Containerships makes no representations and gives no warranties, express or implied, as to its correctness or completeness. Containerships therefore accepts no liability for any errors or omissions in the information provided via the Website or for any consequences arising from the use of the information provided via the Website. Arrangements contrary to or inconsistent with this exclusion of liability are valid only if they are expressly agreed in writing between Containerships and yourself or if Containerships demonstrates a manifest intention to vouch for the correctness of the information.


Access to and use of password-protected areas of this Website is restricted to authorized persons. You are responsible for maintaining password secrecy. Do not share your password with any other person. Change your password regularly to minimize the possibility of unauthorized access to your account.
