General Terms of Use for the website


Liability for contents

As service providers, we are liable for our own contents on these websites according to Sec. 7, paragraph 1 of the German Telemedia Act (TMG). However, according to Sec. 8 to 10 TMG, service providers are not obligated to monitor submitted or stored information permanently or to search for evidence indicating illegal activities.

Legal obligations to remove information or to block the use of information remain unaffected. In this case, liability is only possible from the time of knowledge about a specific violation of law. Illegal contents will be removed immediately as soon as we have knowledge of them.

Liability for links

Our offer includes links to external third-party websites. We cannot influence the contents of such websites and therefore cannot warrant for their contents. Providers or administrators of linked websites are always responsible for their own contents. The linked websites were checked for possible violations of law at the time the link was established. No illegal contents were detected at the time of linking.

A permanent monitoring of the contents of linked websites cannot be implemented without reasonable indications that there has been a violation of law. Illegal links will be removed immediately as soon as we have knowledge of them.


Contents and compilations published on these websites by the providers are subject to German copyright laws. Reproduction, editing, distribution as well as any kind of use outside the scope of the copyright require a written permission of the author or originator. Downloads and copies of these websites are permitted for private use only. The commercial use of our contents without permission of the originator is prohibited.

Copyrights of third parties are respected as long as the contents on these websites do not originate from the provider. Contributions of third parties on these websites are indicated as such. However, if you notice any copyright violation, please inform us. Such contents will be removed immediately.
