Liability for content

The content of this website was created with the greatest possible care. However, we cannot guarantee that the content provided is complete, up-to-date or correct. According to §§ 8-10 TMG, we as a service provider are not obliged to monitor third-party information that has been transmitted or stored or to search for clues and circumstances that indicate the illegality of activities and information.

An obligation on our part to block the use of content within the framework of general laws remains unaffected. However, this liability only comes into question at the moment of becoming aware of a specific violation of rights. If we become aware of legal violations, we must remove the corresponding content immediately.

As a service provider, our liability for our own content is based on general laws.

Liability for links

This website contains links to third party websites – so-called external links. The content of these external links is beyond our control, so that we cannot accept any liability for such content.

The responsibility always lies with the respective operator of the external pages. At the time the external links were linked, no legal violations were apparent. We cannot reasonably be expected to continuously monitor third-party content for legal violations without specific information.

Should we become aware of legal violations, we will remove the corresponding external links immediately.

Copyright / ancillary copyright

German copyright and ancillary copyright law apply to the content published by the provider on this page. If the reproduction, processing, distribution or any other type of exploitation is outside of German copyright and ancillary copyright law, the written consent of the respective creator is required. Unauthorized copying or downloading of these pages is only permitted for private use, but not for commercial use. Unless we as the operator also act as the creator of the content, the copyrights of third parties will be observed. We always endeavor to mark such content as third-party content. In the event that, despite careful work on our part, you notice a copyright infringement, please notify us accordingly,


This website can be used regularly without providing personal data. Should such personal data be collected on this website, this is done in the form of voluntary data input by the user. The personal data will not be passed on to third parties unless the user has given their express consent.

If personal data is collected on our website, this data is always collected within the framework of the provisions of the data protection law of the Federal Republic of Germany. If personal data is collected, you can see the type, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data from this data protection declaration.

Please note that despite the greatest care, data transmission on the Internet is always associated with risks based on security gaps. The unrestricted protection of data is therefore impossible.
