Limitation of liability

The content of this website has been compiled with all due care. The operator of the site is however not liable for the correctness of the content. The use of the website and its content is at the user’s own risk. Contributions listed by name solely reflect the opinion of the respective author and not necessarily that of the site operator. No contract is established between the user and provider solely as a result of the use of the provider’s website.

External Links

This website includes links to the websites of third parties (“external links”). These websites are the responsibility of the respective operator. When first setting up the external links we checked the contents of the third party sites for any violations of rights. No such violations were determined at the time. We have no influence on the current and future design and contents of the linked pages.

The inclusion of external links does not mean that the provider has adopted as his own the contents of the reference or link. It is not possible for the provider to continually check external links without concrete information that indicates violations of the law. If knowledge of infringements is received, however, such external links will be deleted without delay.

Any utilisation which is not allowed under German copyright and ancillary copyright law requires the prior written content of the provider or the relevant right holder. This particularly applies to the duplication, adaptation, translation, saving, manufacture and respective reproduction of content in databases or other electronic media and systems. Contents and third-party rights are clearly indicated as such. Any unauthorised reproduction or disclosure of individual contents or complete pages is prohibited and subject to criminal penalties.

They are used solely and exclusively for statistical purposes. We do not pass on customer data to third parties for either commercial or non-commercial purposes. We explicitly draw attention to the fact that data transmission on the internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) is not completely secure and cannot be completely protected from being accessed by third parties. The use of contact information in the imprint for commercial advertising is expressly undesired unless the provider issues its written consent in advance or if there is a pre-existing business relationship.
