Liability for contents

As a provider of services, we are responsible under section 7 clause 1 of the TMG for ensuring that our own contents on this site comply with the general law of the land. Under sections 8–10 of the TMG, however, we are not, as providers of services, obliged to monitor stored or transmitted information that does not originate with us, nor to investigate circumstances which might point to illegal activity. This disclaimer is without prejudice to legal obligations to remove, or prevent the use of, information. Any liability in this regard is however only possible from the time a specific breach of the law becomes known to us. If or when such breaches of law do become known to us, such contents will be removed immediately.

Liability for links

Our site contains links to external sites operated by third parties, on the content of which we have no influence. We can, therefore, not take any responsibility for the contents of these sites, for which the respective operator is always responsible. At the time the links were included in our site, the linked-to sites were investigated by us for any breach of legal regulations. No unlawful contents were detected. However, in the absence of concrete prima facie evidence of a breach of law, continuous monitoring of the linked-to sites is not possible. Should breaches of the law come to our knowledge, the links in question will be removed immediately.


The contents and works on this site created by the site operator are subject to the copyright law of the Federal Republic of Germany. Any duplication, reworking, distribution, and any form of commercial exploitation beyond that permitted by copyright law require the written consent of the respective author. Downloads and copies of this site may only be used for private and not for commercial purposes. Insofar as the contents of this site were not created by the operator, the copyright of third parties has been respected. In particular, contents created by third parties have been identified as such. Should anyone become aware of a breach of copyright on our part, we request to be informed of such. Should infringements come to our notice, the contents in question will be removed immediately.
