Liability for content
The content in this website has been selected with the greatest of care. However, we cannot entertain liability for the correctness, completeness or validity of the content.

According to the German Telemedia Act TMG §7 Para 1, we as a service provider are responsible for our own content on these web pages according to general law. According to TMG §8 to §10, we as a service provider are not under any obligation to monitor data transferred or stored or to investigate for any circumstances that may indicate illegal activity. This does not affect the obligation to remove or restrict the use of information according to general law. However, this responsibility only applies after we have become aware of the actual illegal activity. On becoming aware of such violations, we shall immediately remove the offending content.

Liability for links
Our website contains links to external websites with content outside our sphere of influence. For this reason, we cannot accept any responsibility of this external content. The owners or webmasters alone are responsible for the content on their websites that are linked to ours. We have checked linked sites for the possibility of illegal activity on linking them; there was no apparent illegal activity at this time. However, it would be unreasonable to demand permanent monitoring of linked external content without actual indications of illegal activity. We shall immediately remove links to the corresponding site on becoming aware of any illegal activity.

The content and works of the webmaster on this website are subject to German copyright law. Any copying, processing, or distribution or any type of use outside the confines of copyright law shall require prior written approval of the author or creator concerned.

Specifically, all content originating from third parties has been marked as such; however, we would appreciate it if you would inform us of any possible infringement you might notice. We shall immediately remove such content on becoming aware of the infringement.
