Use of this website does not create a contractual relationship between the provider and the user. We cannot be held liable for any losses arising from the use of this website. This legal disclaimer shall not be valid in cases where the provisions of Section 839 of the German Civil Code (Liability in case of breach of official duty) are applicable. We shall not accept liability for any losses caused by accessing or downloading data through malware or by the installation or use of software. This legal disclaimer does not apply to the specific instances where information falls within the scope of the EU Services Directive (Services in the Internal Market Directive 2006/123/EG). In these cases, the information is guaranteed to be accurate and up to date.

Liability for contents

As service providers within the meaning of § 6.1 German Interstate Media Services Agreement (Mediendienste-Staatsvertrag - MDStV) and § 7.1 German Telemedia Act (Telemediengesetz - TMG), we are liable for ensuring that our own content on this site complies with the relevant general legislation. Notwithstanding, service providers are not obliged to monitor any third-party information transmitted or stored by them or to investigate circumstances indicating illegal activity. Any obligations under the relevant general legislation to remove or block the use of information remain unaffected. However, liability in such circumstances shall commence at the point in time that we become aware of a specific infringement of the law. Upon notification of any such infringement, we shall take immediate action to remove the contents concerned.

Liability for links

It is important to distinguish between our own content and links to third-party websites. These links are provided purely in order to enable access to third-party content in accordance with Section 8 of the German Telemedia Act. When we originally created the links to the relevant websites, this third-party content was checked to establish whether it could result in civil or criminal liability. However, since we are unable to continuously monitor for changes to third-party content, we cannot accept liability for it. It is the relevant website provider who shall be solely liable for any unlawful, inaccurate or incomplete content and in particular for any losses arising from the use or non-use of third-party information.
