1. Content of the online service
Every effort is made in the preparation of this website to ensure that the information on this website is as up-to-date, factually correct and unambiguous as possible. Despite all efforts, it is possible that unintentional errors may occur. The website content is offered by the Controller without obligation and to the exclusion of any guarantees or assurances. This also applies to all websites to which reference is made by means of (hyper)links.
Insofar as there is no demonstrable intentional or grossly negligent fault on the part of the Controller, liability claims against the Controller relating to damage of a material or immaterial nature caused by the use or non-use of the information provided or by the use of incorrect and incomplete information are excluded.
2. Links and references
In the case of direct or indirect references to external websites (“links”), which lie outside the area of responsibility of the Controller, a liability obligation only exists if the Controller has knowledge of the content and it would be technically possible and reasonable to prevent use in the case of illegal content.
The Controller hereby expressly declares that at the time the links were created, no illegal content was discernible on the linked pages. The Controller has no influence on the current and future design, content or authorship of the linked pages. It is not reasonable to carry out a permanent control of the contents of the linked pages without concrete indications of a violation of the law. Therefore, we hereby expressly distance ourselves from all contents of the linked pages that were changed after the link was set. This statement applies to all links and references set within our own website as well as to entries made by third parties in the guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists set up by the Controller. If any damage occurs by the use or non-use of information presented there, only the author of the respective pages might be liable, not the one who has linked to these pages. This also applies to illegal, incorrect or incomplete content. We will remove such links as soon as we become aware of any infringements of the law.
3. Copyright and trademark law
The Controller endeavours to observe the copyrights of the graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts used in all publications, to use graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts created by the responsible person himself or to use graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts that are not subject to licensing.
All brands and trademarks mentioned on the website and possibly protected by third parties are subject without restriction to the provisions of the applicable trademark law and the ownership rights of the respective owners. The mere mention of a trademark does not imply that it is not protected by the rights of third parties.
The contents and works created by us on these pages are subject to German copyright law. The copyright for published works created by the Controller himself remains solely with the author. Any duplication or use of objects such as diagrams, sounds or texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without the author’s agreement. In the event of a lawful use of the information and image material made available on this homepage, this must be done with reference to the copyright source. We reserve the right to withdraw permission for the reproduction of copyrighted material at any time.

The corresponding content will be removed immediately after the relevant legal infringements become known.Unless there is evidence of wilful intent or gross negligence on the part of the Controller, liability claims against the responsible party relating to material or immaterial damage caused by the use or non-use of the information provided or by the use of incorrect or incomplete information are excluded.All offers are subject to change and non-binding.
