Liability for Contents

The contents of my website have been created with utmost care. For their correctness, completeness and being up-to-date I can, however, not take any guarantee. According to § 7 para 1 TMG I am responsible as a service provider for own contents on these pages according to the general laws. According to §§ 8 to 10 TMG I am, however, not obliged as a service provider, to control transferred or saved third party information, or to research circumstances that suggest illegal activities. Obligations to remove or block the use of information according to the general laws remain unaffected. Any liability in this respect is, however, only after I have gained knowledge of a concrete infringement of the law. As soon as corresponding legal violations become known I will immediately remove those contents.  

Liability for Links

My offer contains links to external websites of third parties on which contents I do not have any influence whatsoever. Therefore I also cannot assume any liability for those external contents.  The respective provider or operator of the pages is always liable for the contents of the linked pages. The linked pages were checked for possible  infringements of the law at the time of linking. Illegal contents could not be recognized at the time of linking. A permanent control of the contents of linked pages, however, is not reasonable without any concrete evidence. Upon learning of any infringements of the law I will immediately remove such links.


The contents created by the operator of the pages and works on these pages are subject to German copyright law. Duplication, processing, distribution and any kind of use outside of the limits of the copyright law require written consent of the respective author or creator. Downloads and copies of this page are allowed for private purposes only, not for commercial purpose. In so far as the contents on this page have not been created by the operator, the copyright of third parties is taken into account. Third party contents, in particular, have been marked as such. Should you become aware of a copyright infringement in spite of this I kindly ask you to send me a respective note. As soon as I become aware of any infringements of the law I will remove such contents.
