Liability and web site content
In terms of § 7 para. 1 of the German Telemedia Act (TMG), we as service providers are responsible for proprietary content according to general law. According to §§ 8 to 10 TMG, however, we as service providers are not obliged to monitor transmitted or saved information, or to conduct research into circumstances that may indicate illegal activity. The requirement to remove or block the use of information under general law remains unaffected. Liability in that regard can only arise from the moment we are aware of a concrete legal infringement. Once we are aware of relevant infringements, we will immediately remove such content.
Liability for links
Our offer includes links to external websites of third parties, whose content we have no influence over. We consequently cannot accept liability for such third party content. The respective provider or operator of linked sites is always responsible for the content of linked sites. Linked sites were reviewed with regard to possible infringements at the time of linking. Illegal content was not apparent at the time of linking. However, permanent monitoring of content of linked pages is unreasonable without tangible indication of an infringement. In the event infringements do become apparent, we will immediately remove such links.
Liability for copyrighted material
Content and works generated by the website operator are subject to German copyright law. Reproduction, editing, publication and any kind of exploitation beyond the limits stipulated by copyright law require written approval by the respective author or creator. Downloads and copies of this site are only permitted for private, non-commercial use. Insofar as the operator did not create content on this site, third parties’ author’s rights are taken into account. In particular, third party content is identified as such. Should you nevertheless become aware of a copyright infringement, we would be grateful for an appropriate notification. In case of legal infringements, we will immediately remove such content.
