Liability for contents
The contents of my pages were created with the greatest care. However, I cannot assume any liability for the correctness, completeness and topicality of the contents. As a service provider I am responsible for my own contents on these pages according to § 7 Abs.1 TMG (German Telemedia Act) and the general laws. According to §§ 8 to 10 TMG I am not obliged to monitor transmitted or stored information or to investigate circumstances that indicate illegal activity. Obligations to remove or block the use of information according to general laws remain unaffected. However, liability in this respect is only possible from the time of knowledge of a concrete infringement. If I become aware of any such violations, I will immediately remove these contents.
Liability for links
My offer contains links to external websites of third parties, on whose contents I have no influence. Therefore I can not take any responsibility for these external contents. The respective provider or operator of the linked pages is always responsible for the contents of these pages. The linked pages were checked for possible legal violations at the time of linking. Illegal contents were not found at the time of linking. However, a permanent control of the contents of the linked pages is not reasonable without concrete evidence of a violation of the law. If I become aware of any infringements, I will remove such links immediately.
The contents and works on these pages created by the site operators are subject to German copyright law. The reproduction, editing, distribution and any kind of use outside the limits of copyright law require the written consent of the respective author or creator. Downloads and copies of these pages are only permitted for private, non-commercial use. Insofar as the content on this site was not created by the operator, the copyrights of third parties are observed. In particular, third-party content is identified as such. Should you nevertheless become aware of a copyright infringement, please inform me accordingly. If I become aware of any infringements, I will remove such contents immediately.
