Liability and Rights
Liability for Contents
The content of this website is prepared with utmost care and to the best of our knowledge. In our role as service provider we are responsible for our content according to the general laws. However, we do not assume responsibility for the accuracy, completeness and reliability of the content. We are under no obligation (§§ 8, 9, 10 Telecommunications Act) to monitor transmitted or stored external information or search for circumstances that indicate an unlawful act. This does not affect, however, the duty to remove and block the use of information according to the general laws. We accept liability only from the time of becoming aware of a concrete infringement. We warrant to remove content immediately upon gaining knowledge of an infringement. Moreover, we would like to point out that contributions by name reflect the opinion of their author and not that of the provider.
Liability for Links
Our website contains links to websites of third parties. We do not assume responsibility for the content of such sites as we have no bearing on them. The responsibility for such content is always that of the provider or operator of the sites. At the time of linking we verified external websites for possible infringements. However, a constant review of the content of the linked websites without concrete evidence of an infringement is not reasonable. We will, however, remove a link immediately upon gaining knowledge of a possible infringement.
Data Privacy Protection
You may be asked for personal information when using our services. Answering such questions is voluntary. Personal data collected in the context of using our websites are used for purposes of contract implementation and handling your inquiries. We will process and use your data for the purposes of consulting, promotion or market research only upon your prior consent. You have the right at all times to revoke your consent with future effect.
Access-related information (date, time, visited site) are stored when our website is accessed. These data are anonymous and are not personal data. They are analyzed exclusively for statistical purposes and are not passed on to third parties for commercial or non-commercial use. Also note that data transmission via the internet (e.g. through email communication) may encounter security gaps and not be fully protected from third party access.
Copyrights and Ancillary Copyrights
The contents published on this website are subject to the German copyrights and ancillary copyrights legislation. Every use not protected under this legislation requires the prior written consent of the provider or the respective rights holder. In particular, this applies to copying, handling, translating, storing, processing or reproducing contents in databases or other electronic media or systems. Content and rights of third parties are marked as such. Unauthorized copying or dissemination of individual contents or entire sites is not permitted and liable to prosecution. Permitted is only the making of copies and downloads for personal, private, non-commercial use. Displaying this website in external frames presupposes our written consent.
