Liability for the contents
In compliance with the general laws, we as a service provider are liable for our own contents on these pages according to §7 para 1 of the TMG [German Teleservices Act]. However, in accordance with §§8 to 10 of the TMG we as a service provider are not obliged to monitor third-party information, which has been forwarded or stored. Nor are we obliged to research circumstances, which indicate unlawful activity.
This does not affect obligations to remove or block the use of information according to general laws. A liability in this respect, however, is only possible from the time we become aware of a definite statutory infringement. As soon as we become aware of the relevant statutory infringements, we shall remove such contents without delay.
Liability for links
Our website contains links to external third-party websites, and we have no control over the contents of these sites. Therefore, we cannot assume responsibility for the correctness, completeness and availability of the contents on these third-party websites. The respective provider or operator of the linked sites shall always be liable for the contents of such sites.
The linked sites were checked for statutory violations at the time of initial linking. No unlawful contents were detected at the time of linking. Continuous monitoring of linked sites, however, is not reasonable without concrete evidence of an infringement. However, as soon as we are informed about or become aware of any statutory infringements, we shall remove such links without delay.
The contents and works created by us on our website, including all its pages and links, are subject to the German copyright law.

However, should you still find any instance of copyright infringement, we request you to bring it to our notice accordingly. As soon as we become aware of any copyright infringements, we shall, as far as possible, remove such contents without delay.
Duplication, processing, dissemination and any kind of utilisation whatsoever outside the context of the copyright law shall require the written consent of the author or creator concerned. Downloading and copying the webpages operated by us is permitted solely for private use; downloading and copying this site for commercial use is not permitted.
Unless otherwise stated, the operator of the website shall own the image rights.
