The contents of our pages were created with great care. However, we cannot assume any liability for the accuracy, completeness and timeliness of the content. As a service provider, we are responsible according to § 7 Abs.1 TMG for own content on these pages according to the general laws. However, according to §§ 8 to 10 TMG, we as a service provider are not obliged to monitor transmitted or stored third-party information or to investigate circumstances that indicate an illegal activity. Obligations to remove or block the use of information under general law remain unaffected. A liability in this regard, however, is only possible from the date of knowledge of a specific infringement. Upon notification of appropriate violations, we will remove this content immediately.


Accountability for Links

Our web pages contain links to external websites of third parties. We have no influence on the content of those pages. Therefore, we can not assume any liability for this external content.
