Liability for Contents

The contents of our pages have been prepared with great care. However, we cannot guarantee that the contents are correct, complete, and up to date. Section 7 (1) of the German Telemedia Act (TMG) rules that as a service provider, we are responsible for our own contents on these pages according to the general laws. However, Sections 8 to 10 of the German Telemedia Act (TMG) rule that as a service provider, we are under no obligation to monitor transmitted or stored third-party information or to search for circumstances implying illegal activities. This does not affect the obligations to remove or block the use of information according to general laws. However, liability for such is only possible from the time that a specific infringement becomes known. If such infringements become known, we will remove such contents without delay.

Liability for Links

Our website contains links to external third-party Web pages on whose contents we have no influence. Therefore, we cannot assume any liability for such third-party contents. The respective provider or operator of the referenced pages is responsible for their contents. The referenced pages were reviewed for potential infringements when the links were set. Illegal contents were not evident when the links were set. However, permanent content screening of referenced pages cannot be reasonably expected unless there are specific indications of an infringement. If infringements become known, we will remove such links without delay.

Reproduction, processing, dissemination, and any kind of utilization outside the limits of the copyright are subject to the written approval of the respective author or creator.

In the case of contents on this site that were not created by the operator, the third-party copyrights shall be observed. Third-party contents will be explicitly designated as such. Should you still notice a copyright infringement, we would appreciate your feedback. If infringements become known, we will remove such contents without delay.

These data will not be forwarded to any third parties without your express approval.

Please note that data transfers via the Internet (e.g. during communication by e-mail) may be subject to security vulnerabilities. Full protection of the data against third-party access is not possible.

The use of the contact data published within the scope of the legal notice obligation by third parties for the transmission of unsolicited advertising and information material is hereby expressly objected to. The site operators expressly reserve the right to take legal steps in the case of unsolicited delivery of advertising information, e.g. in the form of spam mail.
