content of this website
The contents of this website are created with utmost care. However, we do not assume any liability for the correctness, completeness and topicality of the content provided.
We strive to offer the service as uninterrupted as possible for retrieval. Even with all due diligence, however, downtimes cannot be ruled out. We reserve the right to change or discontinue our offer at any time. We cannot assume any liability for interruptions or other disruptions caused by files that are not created correctly or formats that are not structured correctly.
All content and structures of this website are protected by copyright and ancillary copyright. Publication on the World Wide Web or in other Internet services does not constitute a declaration of consent for any other use by third parties. Any use not permitted by German copyright law requires our prior written consent.
We expressly allow and welcome the citing of our documents and the setting of links on our website, as long as it is indicated that the content is from our website and this content is not linked to third-party content that contradicts our interests.
Note on the problem of external links
As a content provider, we are responsible for our “own content”, which we make available for use, in accordance with Section 7, Paragraph 1 of the Telemedia Act, in accordance with general legislation. Cross-references (“links”) to the content provided by other providers are to be distinguished from this own content. Through the cross-reference, we make “external content” available for use, which is marked in this way:
“Links” are always “living” (dynamic) references. When the link was first established, we checked the third-party content to determine whether it might result in civil or criminal liability. However, we do not constantly check the content to which it refers in its offer for changes that could give rise to new liability. If we determine or are informed by others that a specific offer to which we have provided a link gives rise to civil or criminal liability, we will remove the reference to this offer.
Note for providers who want to adopt this disclaimer:
The disclaimer can be accepted without further enquiries. However, we expressly point out that due to the largely unclear legal situation with regard to responsibility for links, we cannot guarantee that a provider will effectively absolve itself of responsibility for third-party content that is based on its own content by including our disclaimer in its offer Offer links can be set free sign.
