Liability for content
As service providers we are, according to the law § 7 Paragraph1 TMG, responsible for our own contents under general law. However, in accordance with §§ 8 to 10 TMG, we are, as service providers, not obliged to supervise transferred or saved information or to investigate in cases of potential illegal activity.
Obligations to delete or to lock the use of information according to the general laws remain unaffected here. However, the relevant liability is only possible after the knowledge of a concrete infringement of rights. Once we become aware of the infringement of rights, we shall remove the contents as promptly as possible.
Liability for links
Our service contains links to external websites by third parties. We have no influence on their contents. Therefore, we are not liable for these external contents. The corresponding provider or operator of the website would be responsible for the content of the linked sites. The websites which are linked were checked for possible violations of rights at the time when the linking was made and to the extent which was possible. At the time when the linking was made we could not recognize any contents, which were violating rights.
Nevertheless, a permanent supervision of the linked sites without concrete indications of violations of rights is not plausible. If we become aware of any rights infringements, we shall delete such links as promptly as possible.
The content created by the operators of the website, as well as the work on this website, is subject to the German copyright law. Reproduction, manipulation, distribution and any kind of utilization, which goes beyond the copyright, needs the written consent by the authors and creators. Downloading and copying this site is only allowed for private and non-commercial use.
In the case that the content on the website was not created by the operator, the copyrights of third parties are to be observed.
Content by third party is particularly identified as such. If nevertheless, you realize that there was a copyright infringement, we kindly ask you to send us a corresponding notice. Once we are informed about the violation of rights, we will delete said content as soon as possible.
