Data protection

Liability for content

The content of our pages has been compiled with the utmost care. However, we cannot assume any guarantee for the correctness, completeness and currency of the content. As a service provider, in line with § 7 parag. 1 TMG (German telemedia law) we are responsible for our own content on these pages according to general laws. However, according to §§ 8 to 10 TMG, we as service providers are not obligated to monitor transmitted or saved third-party information or to search for circumstances that point to activity contrary to the law. Obligations according to the general laws to remove or block the use of information remain unaffected by this. However, liability in this respect will be possible only from the moment of knowledge of a concrete legal infringement. When a corresponding legal infringement becomes known we will remove this content without delay.

Liability for links

Our offer contains links to external Web pages operated by third parties, on whose content we have no influence. Therefore, we are also unable to assume any guarantee for this third-party content. At all times, the respective provider or operator of the pages is responsible for the content of the linked pages. The linked pages were examined for possible legal infringements at the time of linking. No content contrary to law was discernible at the time of the linking. However, without concrete indications of a legal infringement, permanent inspection of the content of linked pages is not reasonable. When legal infringements become known we will remove this content without delay.


The content and works on these pages created by the site operators are subject to German copyright law. Reproduction, editing, dissemination and all manners of exploitation outside the limits of copyright require the written consent of the respective author or creator. Downloads and copies of this site are permitted for private, non-commercial use only. As far as the content on this site was not produced by the operator, the copyrights of third parties are respected. In particular, third-party content is identified as such. In the event that you nevertheless become aware of a copyright infringement, we request that you let us know accordingly. When rights infringements become known we will remove such content without delay.

Use of this Website

Use of our website is generally possible without indication of personal details. As far as personal details are collected on our pages (for example name, address or e-mail address) this occurs, as far as possible, on a voluntary basis at all times. These details will not be forwarded to third parties without your express consent. We point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. during communication by e-mail) may exhibit security gaps. Seamless data protection against access by third parties is not possible. The use by third parties of contact details published in the context of the duty to provide a masthead, for the purpose of sending not expressly requested advertising and information materials, is herewith expressly contradicted. The operators of the pages expressly reserve legal measures in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising information, for instance through spam mails.
