Liability for content
The content of our site has been created with the greatest of care. We cannot however guarantee that the information in it is accurate, complete or up-to-date. As a service provider we are responsible under Section 6(1) of the German Media Services Inter-State Agreement and Section 8(1) of the German Teleservices Act for our own content on this site. Service providers are not however obliged to monitor third party information transmitted or stored on their site by them or to look for circumstances which may suggest a violation of the law. This does not affect our statutory obligations to remove or block the use of information. Our liability in such cases shall however commence from the time we become aware of an actual violation. On becoming aware of such violations we shall remove this content immediately.
Liability for links
Our website contains links to external third-party websites, over the content of which we have no control. We cannot therefore make any guarantees for this third-party content. Responsibility for the content of linked sites lies solely with the provider or operator of the site concerned. All linked sites were checked for possible violations of the law when they were linked to ours. At that time we were not aware of any content which may violate the law. However, we cannot be expected to monitor the content of linked sites on an ongoing basis unless we have reason to suspect a violation of the law. On becoming aware of such a violation we shall remove the respective link immediately.
The operators of the site make every effort to respect the copyrights of outside parties and to employ our own material and material in the public domain. All content and material on this site created by the site operators is governed by German copyright law. Contributions by third parties are identified as such. Reproduction, processing, distribution and any form of exploitation beyond that permitted by copyright law requires the written consent of the author or creator concerned. Downloads and copies of this site may be made for private, non-commercial use only.
Any personal data (e.g. name, address or email addresses) collected on our site is as far as possible given on an entirely voluntary basis. The use of offers and services is, as far as possible, always possible without the provision of personal information. The use of contact details published under the statutory requirement to provide acknowledgements by third parties for the purpose of the transmission of unsolicited advertising and informational material is thus expressly opposed. The site operators expressly reserve the right to take legal action against the unsolicited mailing of advertising information by way of spamming or similar.
