Data protection and notice of liability

Great care has been taken in putting together the content of our pages; however, we cannot guarantee that the latter is correct, complete and topical. As a service provider, we are, in accordance with general law, responsible for our own content on these pages. Nevertheless, service providers are not obliged to monitor the third-party information they transfer or store or to investigate circumstances which point to unlawful acts. The obligation to remove or block usage of information according to general law remains unaffected. Any liability in this respect is only incurred from the moment we receive knowledge of a specific infringement. If such infringements of the law become known to us, we shall erase this content immediately.

Liability for links

Our service includes links to the external websites of third parties, upon whose content we have no influence. We cannot therefore assume any liability for this third-party content. The content of linked pages is solely the responsibility of the respective provider or site operator. At the time of linking, the linked pages were examined concerning possible infringement of the law. During this period, no unlawful content was apparent, however, permanent monitoring of the linked pages is not reasonable unless we have concrete proof of an infringement of the law. Should we receive notice of any violation of the law, we shall immediately remove such links.
