Exclusion of liability

Liability for content

The content of our pages was prepared with the greatest of care. However, we cannot accept any liability for the accuracy, completeness or currentness of such content. As service providers, we are responsible in accordance with § 7, Para.1 TMG for our own content in accordance with general law. However, according to §§ 8 to 10 TMG, we are not obliged as service providers to monitor transmitted or stored third party data or to research circumstances indicating an illegal act. Obligations to remove information or bar its use in accordance with general law shall remain unaffected. However, a consequential liability is only possible from the time of gaining knowledge of a concrete violation of the law. Upon gaining knowledge of a corresponding legal violation, we shall remove such content immediately.

 

Liability for links

Our offer contains links to external third party web pages upon whose content we have no influence. For this reason, we cannot accept any liability for such third party content. The respective provider or operator of linked pages is always responsible for such pages. At the time of linking such pages, their content is examined for possible legal violations. Illegal content was not recognisable at the time of linking. However, permanent supervision of the linked pages without concrete indications of a legal violation would be unreasonable. We shall remove such links immediately upon gaining knowledge of legal violations.

 

Copyright

The content and works prepared by the page operators of these pages are subject to German copyright law. The written agreement of the respective author or creator respectively is required before copying, processing, distributing or using such information in any form beyond the scope of application of copyright law. Downloads and copies of these pages are only permitted for private use and not for commercial use. Insofar as the content of these pages has not been prepared by their operator, copyrights of third parties are observed. In particular, third party content will be identified as such. Should you nevertheless become aware of a violation of copyright law, we request a corresponding notification. We shall remove such content immediately upon gaining knowledge of legal violations.

Data protection

As a rule, the use of our web page is possible without the provision of personal data. Insofar as personal data is collected on our pages (for example, name, address or email addresses), this is always done on a voluntary basis. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your explicit approval.

We would like to point out that data transfer via the Internet (e.g. communication by email) may involve security issues. Complete protection of data from access by third parties is not possible.

The use of data published within the framework of the legal notice obligation by third parties for the purpose of sending unsolicited advertising and information material is hereby explicitly prohibited. The operators of the pages explicitly reserve the right to take legal action in case of the distribution of unsolicited advertising material, such as spam emails, for example.
