"Hände weg" ist Xybernauts Devise.

"Ohne Hände" ist unsere/Xybernauts Devise Devise.
Wenn es sich um Xybernauts eigene Website handelt, würde ich eher ... "ist unsere Devise" nehmen.

Hdh, Eva

"Hands off" means no intervention, and the term is often used in the context of hands-off management.
Schäfer, Wirtschaftswörterbuch, 6. Aufl., gives "interventionsfrei".
For hands-on management, Schäfers Management & Marketing Dictionary gives "straffe Unternehmensführung". If the hands off refers to management (which I think it might, but it's hard to tell from just one sentence), you might use like
Im Hause X. herrscht eine Politik der lockeren Unternehmensführung.
Nichteinmischung and Laissez-faire also came to mind, see if those terms will work within your context.
Hope this helps.
