Liability for content
We do not provide any guarantee for the correctness, completeness, topicality or quality of the information made available. As a service provider we are, according to Art. 7, paragraph 1 of the German Telemedia Act (TMG), responsible for our own content on these pages in accordance with general laws. According to Articles 8 to 10 of the German Telemedia Act (TMG) we are as service providers, however, not obliged to monitor transmitted or stored third-party information or to search for circumstances pointing to an unlawful activity. Obligations to remove or block the use of information in accordance with general laws shall remain unaffected by this. Liability in this regard shall, however, only be possible from the point in time at which knowledge is gained of a concrete violation of the law. Upon such violations of the law becoming known we shall remove this content immediately.
If information, software or documentation is made available free of charge, we shall not be liable for material defects and defects of title of the information, software and documentation, above all not for their correctness, freedom from errors, freedom from third-party industrial property rights and copyright, completeness and/or usability – unless we act with intent or fraudulently. Otherwise our liability shall be excluded, unless we are mandatorily liable because of intent, gross negligence, because of harm to life and limb or impairment of health, because of the providing of a condition guarantee, because of the fraudulent concealing of a defect or because of the violation of material obligations in accordance with the statutory regulations. By material obligations an obligation is to be understood, the meeting of which makes the orderly performance of the contract possible in the first place and on the meeting of which the other party to the contract may regularly rely. Damages for violation of material obligations shall, however – apart from in the case of intent or gross negligence – be limited to the foreseeable damage/loss typical of the contract.
Liability for links and references
Our offer contains links to external websites of third parties, on whose content we have no influence. Therefore we cannot accept any guarantee for this third-party content, either. For content of the linked sites the respective service provider or operator of the sites is always responsible. The linked sites were checked at the point in time of linking for any possible violations of the law. Unlawful content was not identifiable at the point in time of linking. Permanent checking of the content of the linked sites is, however, not acceptable without concrete indications of a violation of the law. Upon violations of the law becoming known we will remove such links immediately.

The content and works on these sites produced by the site operators are subject to German copyright law. Contributions by third parties are marked as such. Downloads and copies on this website may only be used to the extent agreed, or – if nothing has been agreed – that corresponds to the purpose pursued by us with making available and transfer by us. Irrespective of this information, trademarks and other content on our website must not be altered, copied, duplicated, sold, hired out, used, added or utilised in any other way without our prior written approval.
Should any one of the above mentioned provisions be ineffective, the effectiveness of the other provisions shall not be affected by this. The law of the Federal Republic of Germany shall apply to the exclusion of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods.
