Exemption from Liability:
Liability for Content

The contents of the 'web pages' and the newsletter are prepared with the upmost care. The provider accepts no responsibility for the accuracy, completeness or timeliness of the content. The use of the content of the 'web pages' is at the user's own risk. Contributions mentioned by name reflect the opinion of the author and not necessarily the opinion of the provider. As a service provider we are responsible according to § 7 paragraph 1 of TMG for our own contents on these pages under the general law. According to §§ 8 to 10 TMG, we are not obligated as a service provider to monitor transmitted or stored information, or to investigate circumstances that suggest an illegal activity. Obligations to remove or block the use of information remain, in accordance with legal regulations, unaffected. Any liability in this respect can be assumed only from the moment that knowledge of the specific breach of law is obtained. In the event that the corresponding violations become known, we shall remove these contents immediately.

Liability for Links

Our offer contains links to external websites operated by third parties, on whose contents we have no influence. Therefore, we cannot assume liability for these contents. Instead, it is the relevant supplier or operator of the linked web pages who is responsible for the content of these pages. The linked pages were inspected for possible legal infringements at the time the link was established. At the time of linking, no unlawful contents were detectable. Permanent monitoring of the content of the linked pages is infeasible without any specific indication of an infringement of rights. In the event that corresponding violations become known, we shall remove the corresponding links immediately. Copyright The contents on these websites, as prepared and displayed by its operator, are subject to German copyright law. Their duplication, processing, distribution, or any form of commercialization beyond the scope of the copyright law requires the written consent of the respective author or creator. Copies and downloads are allowed solely for private and non-commercial purposes. Insofar as this page's contents were not created by its operator, third-party copyrights will be respected and observed. Should you still have reason to believe that a copyright violation has occurred despite the precautionary measures taken, we kindly ask you to notify us. In the event that the corresponding violations become known, we shall remove this content immediately.

When you are asked to provide personal data (e.g., name, address or e-mail address), this is, as far as possible, optional for you. We do not pass this information to third parties without your explicit agreement. Please note that the transmission of data via the Internet (e.g., e-mail communication) can be insecure.
