Legal Notice

Please note:
The following Legal Notice represents a translation of the German text for the purpose of understanding and has no legal validity. Only the original Legal Notice (Impressum) written in German is legally binding.

 

Liability for Contents
The contents of our website pages have been created with utmost care. However, we accept no liability for the contents being correct, accurate and up-to-date. As a service provider, we are responsible under § 7 paragraph 1 German Telemedia Act (TMG) for our own contents on these pages in accordance with the general laws. However, according to §§ 8 to 10 TMG, we are not obliged as a service provider to monitor any external information transmitted or stored, or to investigate any circumstances that indicate illegal activities. Obligations to remove or block usage of information in accordance with the general laws remain unaffected. Any liability in this respect is only incurred, however, from the moment that knowledge of a specific breach of law is obtained. As soon as we become aware of legal violations, we will remove these contents immediately.

 

Liability for Links
Our site contains links to third-party websites, over whose contents we have no influence. Thus we can accept no liability for these external contents. The relevant provider or operator of the sites is always responsible for the contents of these linked pages. The external pages were checked for legal violations at the time of making the links. Illegal contents were not discernible at the time of linking. Permanent monitoring of the contents of the linked pages is not reasonable, however, without concrete indications of a legal violation. Once we become aware of legal violations, we will remove such links immediately.

In particular, third-party contents will be marked as such. Should you nevertheless become aware of a copyright violation, we kindly request that you notify us. Upon becoming aware of copyright violations, we will remove such contents immediately.
