Liability for content
In line with Article 7, Paragraph 1 of the German Teleservices Act (TMG), as service provider we are responsible for our own content on these web pages under general law. However, in line with Articles 8 to 10 of the German Teleservices Act (TMG), as service provider we are not obliged to monitor transmitted or stored third-party information or screen it for instances that indicate an unlawful activity. Obligations to remove or block the use of information under general law shall remain unaffected herewith. Liability of this nature is however only constituted from the time at which a specific legal breach becomes known. We shall immediately remove content in the case of such legal breaches becoming known to us.
Liability for links
Our service includes links to third-party websites. We have no influence over the content of such websites. We cannot therefore accept any responsibility for such third-party content. The respective provider or operator of the web pages is always responsible for the content of linked pages. When the links were set, the pages were checked for any legal breaches. At the time of linking, no unlawful content was identifiable. However, constant monitoring of linked pages without specific indications of a legal breach cannot be reasonably expected. We shall immediately remove such links in the case of legal breaches becoming known to us.

The reproduction, processing, distribution and any form of exploitation beyond the bounds of copyright law shall be subject to the written consent of the respective author or creator. Downloads and copies of this website are only permitted for private, but not commercial use. Insofar as the content on this website was not created by the operator, the copyrights of third parties shall be observed. In particular, content of third parties shall be marked as such. Should you nevertheless notice a breach of copyright, we kindly request you to inform us of such. We shall immediately remove such content in the case of legal breaches becoming known to us.
