Liability and Disclaimer
(1) Limitation of liability
Contents of this website
The contents of this website have been compiled with the greatest possible care. However, the provider assumes no liability for the accuracy, completeness and timeliness of the content provided. The use of the retrievable contents is at the user's own risk. Contributions marked by name reflect the opinion of the respective author and not always the opinion of the provider.
Availability of the website
The provider will endeavour to offer the service as uninterruptedly as possible. However, even with all due care, downtimes cannot be excluded. The provider reserves the right to change or discontinue his offer at any time.
This website contains links to third-party websites ("external links"). These websites are subject to the liability of the respective operators. When the external links were first established, the provider checked the external content for possible violations of the law. At that time, no violations of the law were apparent. The provider has no influence whatsoever on the current and future design and content of the linked pages. The inclusion of external links does not mean that the provider adopts the content behind the reference or link as his own. A constant control of these external links is not reasonable for the provider without concrete evidence of legal violations. However, in the event of knowledge of legal infringements, such external links will be deleted immediately.
The respective author is responsible for the content of the advertisements, as well as for the content of the advertised website. The presentation of the advertisement does not represent any acceptance by the provider.
No contractual relationship
The use of the provider's website does not constitute a contractual relationship between the user and the provider. In this respect, there are no contractual or quasi-contractual claims against the provider. In the event that the use of the website should nevertheless lead to a contractual relationship, the following limitation of liability shall apply purely as a precaution: The provider shall be liable for intent and gross negligence as well as for breach of an essential contractual obligation (cardinal obligation). The provider shall be liable, limited to compensation for damages foreseeable at the time of conclusion of the contract and typical for the contract, for such damages as are based on a slightly negligent breach of cardinal obligations by him or one of his legal representatives or vicarious agents. The provider is not liable for slightly negligent breach of secondary obligations which are not cardinal obligations. The liability for damages which fall within the scope of protection of a guarantee or assurance given by the provider as well as the liability for claims based on the Product Liability Act and damages from injury to life, body or health remains unaffected by this.
The contents and works published on this website are protected by copyright. Any use not permitted by German copyright law requires the prior written consent of the respective author or originator. This applies in particular to duplication, editing, translation, storage, processing or reproduction of content in databases or other electronic media and systems. Contents and contributions of third parties are marked as such. The unauthorized duplication or passing on of individual contents or complete pages is not permitted and punishable by law. Only the production of copies and downloads for personal, private and non-commercial use is permitted.
Links to the provider's website are welcome at any time and do not require the consent of the provider of the website. The presentation of this website in external frames is only permitted with permission.
(3) Data protection
By visiting the website of the provider, information about the access (date, time, page viewed) may be stored on the server. These data do not belong to the personal data, but are anonymous. They are evaluated exclusively for statistical purposes. It is not passed on to third parties for commercial or non-commercial purposes.
Furthermore, data can be stored on the computer of the website user. This data is called a "cookie" and is used to simplify the user's access behaviour. However, the user has the option of deactivating this function within the respective web browser. In this case, however, the usability of our website may be restricted.
The provider expressly points out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) is subject to security gaps and cannot be completely protected against access by third parties.
The use of the contact data of the provider identification - in particular the telephone/fax numbers and e-mail address - for commercial advertising is expressly not desired, unless the provider has previously given his written consent or a business contact already exists. The provider and all persons named on this website hereby object to any commercial use and disclosure of their data.
(4) Applicable law
The applicable law of the Federal Republic of Germany shall apply exclusively.
