Liability for contents

As a service provider, we are responsible under Sec. 7, paragraph 1 of the Tele-Media Act (TMG) for our own contents on these pages in accordance with the law in general. However, under Secs. 8 to 10 of the TMG, we as a service provider are not obliged to monitor transmitted or stored third-party information, or to search for circumstances that suggest illegal activity.

Obligations to remove or to block the use of information in accordance with the law in general are not affected by this. However, such liability is only possible after we have learned of a specific violation. If such violations become known, we will remove these contents immediately.

Liability for hyperlinks

This Web site contains links to Web sites of third parties ("external hyperlinks"), on the contents of which we have no influence. The respective operators are liable for these Web site. Upon the first linkage to the external hyperlinks, the provider has checked the third-party contents for any violations of the law. At that time, no violations of the law were apparent. The provider has no influence on the current and future structure or the contents of the linked pages. Therefore, we cannot warrant these third-party contents, either.

It is unreasonable to demand constant monitoring of these linked pages from the provider without specific indications of violations. However, if we learn of violations, such external links will be removed without delay.

The reproduction, revision, distribution, and every form of utilization beyond the limits of copyright law require the written consent of the respective author or creator.

Where the contents on this site have not been created by the operator, the copyrights of third parties are respected. Contents and contributions by third parties are marked as such. If despite this, you should notice a copyright violation, please inform us accordingly. If we learn of violations, we will remove such contents immediately.
