Liability for content
As a service provider and according to § 7 Abs.1 TMG we are responsible for own content on these sites. However, according to §§ 8 bis 10 TMG we are not responsible to examine transferred or saved external information or to explore circumstances which suggest unlawful activities. Obligations to remove or block the use of information due to general law remain unaffected by this. However, this responsibility comes into effect from the date of knowledge of a specific infringement. As soon as we become acquainted with such an infringement we will remove respective contents immediately.

Liability for Links
Our services contain links to external websites. We cannot influence their contents. Therefore, we cannot assume liability for external contents. For these contents the respective provider is responsible. All linked sites were checked with respect to potential infringements at the time of the linking. At this time, unlawful contents were not identifiable. However, a permanent control of the linked sites is not reasonable without concrete indications of infringements. After becoming aware of infringements we will promptly delete such links.

All contents developed by the service provider are liable to the German copyright law. Duplication, editing, distribution and each form of exploitation outside of the constraints of the copyright law are subject to written agreement of the respective author or originator. Downloads and copies of this site are only allowed for private use and not for commercial purposes. As far as the contents of this site are not created by the service provider copyrights of third persons will be taken into account. Specifically, contents of third persons will be marked accordingly. In case you nevertheless become aware of a copyright infringement we ask for an indication. We will then remove such contents.
