Liability for content
As a service provider we are responsible under Section 7 (1) of the TMG [German Telemedia Act, Telemediagesetz] for our own content on these pages under general laws. Under Sections 8 to 10 TMG we are not, however, obliged as service providers to monitor external information that has been transmitted or stored on them or to search for facts or circumstances indicating unlawful activities. This does not affect our obligation under general laws to remove or block the use of information. We cannot, however, assume any liability for such information until we have specific knowledge of a legal violation. In the event of any legal violation becoming known, such content will be removed immediately.
Liability for links
This website includes links to external websites over whose contents we have no control. Consequently, we cannot accept responsibility for this external content. In each case, the relevant website host or operator is responsible for the contents of their own site. Linked pages have been checked for potential legal infringements at the time of the links being created. No illegal content was found at this time. However, ongoing monitoring of the linked website’s content is not viable, without specific grounds for suspecting legal infringement. In the event of any legal infringement becoming known, the link will be removed immediately.
The content and works created by the site operators are subject to German copyright law. The copying, alteration, circulation and other use of the site’s contents than that included within the terms of copyright require the written consent of the relevant author or creator. Downloads and copies from this site are permitted only for private, non-commercial use. The copyright of third parties has been respected insofar as content on this site was not created by the operator. In particular, third party content has been identified as such. If you should nevertheless become aware of any infringement of copyright, we would ask you to notify us accordingly. If we become aware of rights infringements we will remove such content immediately.
