PRIVACY POLICY

Disclaimer – legal notices

1. Limitation of liability

The contents of this website are created with the utmost care. However, the provider does not guarantee the accuracy, completeness or timeliness of the content. The use of the content of the website is at the user’s own risk. Contributions identified by name reflect the opinion of the author and not necessarily the opinion of the provider. The mere use of the website does not create any contractual relationship between the user and the provider.

2. External links

This website contains links to third party websites (“external links”). These websites are the responsibility of the operator. The provider checked the external content at the time of initial connection of the external links to establish whether there were any legal violations. At that time, no violations were found. The provider has no influence on the current and future design and content of linked pages. The inclusion of external links does not mean that the provider agrees with or adopts the content behind the reference or link. Constant monitoring of these external links is not reasonable for the provider without concrete evidence of violations. When the operator gains knowledge of rights violations, such external links will be deleted immediately.

The information published on this website are subject to German copyright and ancillary copyright law. Any use not permitted by German copyright and ancillary copyright law requires the prior written consent of the provider or their respective owners. This applies in particular to copying, editing, translation, storage, processing and reproduction of contents in databases or other electronic media and systems. Contents and rights of third parties are marked as such. The unauthorized reproduction or distribution of individual contents or complete pages is not allowed and punishable. Only the production of copies and downloads for personal, private and non-commercial use is permitted. The presentation of this website in external frames is only allowed with written permission.

The provider expressly points out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) may involve gaps in security and cannot be completely protected against access by third parties. The use of the contact information from the legal notice for commercial advertising is expressly not desired unless the provider has given his written consent or a business relationship already exists. The provider and all persons named on this website hereby object to any commercial use and disclosure of their data.
