Liability for contents
The contents of our website were prepared with the greatest care. However, we cannot guarantee that the contents provided are accurate, complete and up to date. Pursuant to Sect. 7 (1) TMG, we as a service provider are responsible under general legislation for our own content on these pages. Pursuant to Sections 8 to 10 TMG, however, we as a service provider are not obligated to monitor transmitted or stored third-party information or investigate circumstances suggesting illegal activities. Any obligation under general legislation to remove or block the use of information remains unaffected. However, any liability in this respect is limited to a period commencing at the time that a concrete violation of the law becomes known to us. As soon as we become aware of such a violation, we will remove these contents without delay.
Liability for links
Our offer contains links to external third-party websites whose contents are beyond our control. We therefore cannot assume any liability for these external contents. The respective providers or operators of the linked websites are always responsible for their contents. The linked websites were checked for possible violations of the law at the time the links were established. No unlawful contents were apparent at that time. However, a constant check of the contents of linked sites is unreasonable without concrete evidence of a violation of the law. We will remove such links without delay as soon as we become aware of any such violations.

Any third-party contents are specifically identified as such. Should you nevertheless become aware of a copyright infringement, we ask you to notify us accordingly. We will remove such contents without delay as soon as we become aware of any infringement.
