Liability for content

As a service provider, we are responsible for our own content on these pages in accordance with general legislation pursuant to Section 7 Paragraph 1 of the German Telemedia Act (Telemediengesetz (TMG)). However, according to §§ 8 to 10 TMG, we are not obliged as a service provider to monitor transmitted or stored third-party information or to investigate circumstances that indicate illegal activity.

Obligations to remove or block the use of information in accordance with general laws remain unaffected by this. However, liability in this respect is only possible from the point in time at which a concrete infringement of the law becomes known. If we become aware of corresponding infringements, we will remove this content immediately.

Liability for links

Our website contains links to external websites of third parties over whose content we have no influence. Therefore, we cannot assume any liability for these external contents. The respective provider or operator of the pages is always responsible for the content of the linked pages. The linked pages were checked for possible legal violations at the time of linking. Illegal contents were not recognisable at the time of linking.

However, permanent monitoring of the content of the linked pages is not reasonable without concrete indications of a legal violation. If we become aware of any violations of the law, we will remove such links immediately.


The contents published on this website are subject to German copyright. Any use not permitted by German copyright requires prior written consent of the operator or the respective copyright holder. This applies in particular to duplication, editing, translation, storage, processing or reproduction of content in databases or other electronic media and systems

Insofar as the content on this site was not created by us, the copyrights of third parties are respected. In particular, contents and rights of third parties are marked as such. Should the visitor nevertheless become aware of a copyright infringement, we ask for a respective note. As soon as we become aware of any infringements, we will remove such content immediately.
