Liability exclusion (disclaimer)
Liability for content
As a service provider, we are generally responsible for our own content on these pages in accordance with § 7 subsection 1 of the TMG (German Telemedia Act). Pursuant to §§ 8 to 10 of the TMG, we are not obliged as a service provider to monitor transmitted or stored external information or to look for indications of illegal activity. Obligations to remove or block the use of information in accordance with general laws remain unaffected. Any liability in this respect, however, is only possible from the moment we obtain knowledge of the specific breach of law. Should any corresponding violation of the law come to our knowledge we will remove this content immediately.
Liability for external links
Our website includes links to external websites of third parties, over whose content we have no influence. Therefore, we cannot accept any responsibility for their content. Individual providers or operators of the linked pages are always responsible for their content. The linked sites were checked for possible legal violations at the time they were linked. Illegal content was not detected at the time of linking. Permanent control of linked content pages, however, is not reasonable without specific indications of a violation. Should any corresponding violation of the law come to our knowledge we will remove this content immediately.
The contents and work on this website created by the website operator are subject to German copyright law. Copying, editing, distribution and any use of the contents outside the limits of the copyright laws require the written consent of the author or creator. Downloads and copies of these pages are permitted only for private, non-commercial use. If the content of this page was not created by the operator, the copyrights of third parties will be respected. In particular, third-party content shall be identified as such. Despite this, if you become aware of any copyright infringement, we request that you provide us with the corresponding information. Should any legal violation come to our attention, we will remove such content immediately.
In general, our website can be used without providing any personal data. If personal data is collected on our pages (e.g. name, address or email address), this is done on a voluntary basis as far as possible. The data will not be disclosed to third parties without your explicit consent.
We hereby give notice that data transmitted via the internet (e.g. via email communication) may be subject to security breaches. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.
