Liability for Content

The contents of our website have been compiled with utmost care. However, we do not accept any liability for the contents being correct, complete and up-to-date. According to the German Tele-Media Act, we are responsible, as a service provider, for our own contents on these web pages according to the general law. Service providers are not obligated, however, to monitor any third party information provided or stored by them or to investigate circumstances which point to an illegal act. Our obligation to remove or block the use of information according to the general law remains unaffected. Respective liability is only possible, however, upon becoming aware of a specific violation. We shall promptly remove any content upon becoming aware that it violates the law.

Liability for Links

Our service contains links to external third party web sites. We have no influence whatsoever on the contents of these websites and therefore do not accept any liability for these third-party contents. The content of such third-party sites linked is the responsibility of the respective owners/providers. At the time third-party web sites were linked to our web site, we found no indication whatsoever of any likely contravention of the law. However, permanent monitoring of the contents of the web sites linked to our web site without a specific indication for a violation of the law is not reasonable. We shall promptly delete a link upon becoming aware that it violates the law.
