Limitations of liability:

Limitation of liability for internal content
The content of our website has been compiled with meticulous care and to the best of our knowledge. However, we cannot assume any liability for the up-to-dateness, completeness or accuracy of any of the pages.
Pursuant to section 7, para. 1 of the TMG (Telemediengesetz – Tele Media Act by German law), we as service providers are liable for our own content on these pages in accordance with general laws. However, pursuant to sections 8 to 10 of the TMG, we as service providers are not under obligation to monitor external information provided or stored on our website. Obligations for the removal or barring of the use of information in accordance with legal regulations remain unaffected. Any liability concerning this matter can only be assumed from the point in time at which the infringement becomes known to us. Once we have become aware of a specific infringement of the law, we will immediately remove the content in question.

Limitation of liability for external links
Our website contains links to the websites of third parties (“external links”). As the content of these websites is not under our control, we cannot assume any liability for such external content. In all cases, the provider of information of the linked websites is liable for the content and accuracy of the information provided. At the point in time when the links were placed, no infringements of the law were recognisable to us. Permanent monitoring of the content of the linked pages cannot be reasonably expected without concrete evidence of unlawful content. As soon as an infringement of the law becomes known to us, we will immediately remove the link in question.

The content and works published on this website are governed by the copyright laws of Germany. Any duplication, processing, distribution or any form of utilisation beyond the scope of copyright law shall require the prior written consent of the author or authors in question. Downloads, copies, of this website and services are meant for exclusively for personal use and not for commercial purposes. Insofar as the contents of this website were not created by the operator, third-party copyrights are respected. In particular third-party contents will be indicated as such. Should you still have reason to believe that a copyright infringement has occurred we request that you notify us accordingly. As soon as an infringement of the law becomes known to us, we will immediately remove the content in question.


Data protection
The use of our website is possible without providing personal information. To the extent that personal data (name, address, email address etc.) are collected this only occurs – to the extent possible – on a voluntary basis by the user of the website. Any forwarding of the data to third parties without the express consent of the user shall not take place.
We would like to point out that the transmission of data via the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can offer security vulnerabilities. It is therefore impossible to safeguard the data completely against access by third parties.
We hereby expressly prohibit the use of the contact data published as part of our duty to publish an imprint for the purpose of sending us any advertising or informational material. The owners expressly reserve the right to take legal steps in the case of the unsolicited sending of advertising information; e.g., by means of spam mail.

Data Protection Declaration for the use of Google +1
Collection and disclosure of information:
The Google +1 button is a way for you to share information publicly with the world. The Google +1 button helps you and others to receive personalised content from Google and its partners. The fact that you +1’d something will be recorded by Google, along with information about the page you were viewing when you clicked on the +1 button. Your +1’s may appear to others as an annotation with your profile name and photo in Google services such as in search results or on your Google Profile or elsewhere on websites and ads on the Internet. Google will record information about your +1 activity in order to provide you and other users with a better experience on Google services. In order to use the Google +1 button, you need to have a public Google Profile visible to the world, which at a minimum includes the name you chose for the profile. That name will be used across Google services and in some cases it may replace another name you’ve used when sharing content under your Google Account. Google may display your Google Profile identity to people who have your email address or other identifying information.
Use of the collected information:
In addition to the above-described uses, the information you provide is used subject to Google’s main Privacy Policy. Google may share aggregate statistics related to users’ +1 activity with the public, our users, and partners, such as publishers, advertisers, or connected sites.
