Liability for contents

The contents of our website were compiled with the greatest possible care and attention. However, we cannot assume any liability for the correctness, completeness and topicality of the contents. According to Section 7 (1) German Telemedia Act (TMG), we are in our capacity as service providers responsible for own contents within the scope of the general laws. However, according to Sections 8 to 10 TMG we are not obliged to monitor transmitted or stored third party information, nor to research circumstances indicating unlawful acts. The obligations to remove or block the use of information according to the general laws remain unaffected thereby. Any liability in this regard, however, is possible only from the point in time we gain knowledge of a concrete legal violation. When we become aware of corresponding legal violations, we will immediately remove those contents.

Liability for links

Our offer contains links to external third party websites the contents of which we cannot influence. Therefore we can also not assume any liability for these third party contents. The responsibility for the contents of linked sites always remains with the respective provider or website operator.

When we become aware of legal violations, we will immediately remove such links.
