1. Limitation of liability for content

As a service provider, we are responsible under section 7 (1) of the Teledienstegesetz(TDG - German Teleservices Act) for our own content on our website in line with general legislation. The content of this website is created with the utmost care. However, we assume no liability for the accuracy, completeness and status of the content provided.

Under sections 8-10 TDG, however, there is no obligation to monitor transmitted or stored external information or to search for facts that indicate illegal activity. This does not affect obligations to remove or block the use of information under general legislation. However, any liability relating to this becomes possible only upon becoming aware of a specific breach of the law. If we become aware of legal violations, we will remove this content immediately.

Use of the provider’s website does not in any way establish a contractual agreement between the user and the provider.

2. Liability for external links

This website contains links to third-party websites (“external links”). Liability for these websites is assumed by the respective providers. We have no influence over the content of these linked external sites. We examined the external content for possible breaches of the law when including the links for the first time. No breaches were found at that time. We have no influence on the current or future design and content of the linked pages. The use of external links does not mean that we adopt the contents of the reference or link as our own. Continuous monitoring of the external links cannot be reasonably expected without firm indications of breaches of the law. If we become aware of breaches of the law, however, any such external links will be removed without delay.

Any copy, processing, dissemination, translation, storage or reproduction of content in databases or other electronic media and systems and any other use of this content and works beyond the scope of copyright requires our prior written consent or the prior written consent of the respective copyright holder. In particular, copies are not permitted for commercial use. Unauthorised copies or reproductions of partial content or full sites are not permitted and are punishable.

Third party content and rights are indicated as such. If you nonetheless notice a breach of copyright, please notify us accordingly. If we become aware of corresponding breaches of the law, we will remove any such content immediately.

This website may be displayed in different formats only with written permission.

4. Objection to junk mail

The contact details published in this legal information must not be used to send commercial advertising or advertising and information materials not expressly requested. This is expressly not welcome, unless we have previously given our consent in writing or a business relationship is already established. We, and all other persons named on this website, hereby object to any commercial use or passing on of our data. The operators of the pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of unsolicited sending of advertising information, for instance through spam e-mails.
