Exclusion of liability:
Liability for content
The content on our website was produced with the utmost care. However, we cannot guarantee that the content is correct, complete or up-to-date. Pursuant to section 7 (1) of the German Telemedia Act (Telemediengesetz, TMG), as a service provider we are responsible for our own content on this website in accordance with general legislative provisions. Pursuant to sections 8 to 10 TMG, however, as a service provider we are not required to monitor third-party information that is transmitted or stored, or to investigate circumstances indicative of unlawful activity. This does not affect obligations to remove or block the use of information under general legislative provisions. Liability in this regard, however, is only possible from the time of becoming aware of a specific violation. If we become aware of such violations, we will remove the relevant content immediately.
Liability for links
Our website contains links to external third-party websites over which we have no influence. Therefore we cannot provide any guarantee for this external content either. In each case, the respective provider or operator of the website is responsible for the content of linked sites. At the time of linking, the linked sites were checked for possible violations of the law. No unlawful content was identified at the time of linking. However, we cannot reasonably be expected to check linked sites on a permanent basis without any specific indication of a violation of the law. If we become aware of violations, we will remove the relevant links immediately.
Content and works on this site created by the site operator are subject to German copyright laws. Reproduction, modification, distribution and any type of use beyond the extent permitted by copyright law require the written permission of the respective author or creator. Downloads and copies of this website are allowed only for private, non-commercial use. If content on this website was not produced by the operator, the copyright of third parties is respected. In particular, third-party content is identified as such. Notwithstanding the above, we request that you inform us if a copyright violation comes to your attention. If we become aware of violations, we will remove the relevant content immediately.
