Legal Note:

This Declaration is a translation of the original German text which is the legally binding version.



The content of our website has been created with care. However, we can´t accept any responsibility for the correctness, completeness and up-to-date nature of this content. As service providers we are responsible in accordance to § 7 Section 1 TMG for our own content on these pages. However, in accordance with §§ 8 to 10 TMG we are not obliged as service providers to monitor outside information which is transferred or saved, or to investigate circumstances which might indicate illegal activities. This is without prejudice to obligations to remove or block the use of information in accordance with general legislation. However, liability in this respect will not be incurred until the point in time when a concrete breach of the law is identified. If any breach of the law becomes known the applicable content will be removed immediately.



Our website contains links to external websites of third parties on content of which we have no influence. We can therefore accept no liability for this content. In each case the individual site operator is responsible for the content of linked websites. At the time the link was placed the relevant sites were checked for possible breaches of the law. At this time no illegal content was identifiable. However, without any concrete indication of a breach of the law it is not possible to carry out permanent monitoring of linked websites. If any breach of the law becomes known, we will immediately remove the relevant link.



The content of this website created by the site operator is subject to German copyright law. Its copying, processing, distribution and any type of use beyond the limits allowed by copyright require the written approval of the author. Downloads and copies of this website are only permitted for private, non-commercial use. In any content which was not created by the site operator the copyright of third parties is respected. Any third party content is identified as such. However, if you identify any infringement of copyright in spite of this, please inform us without delay. If any breach of copyright is established, we will immediately remove the relevant content.

However, if IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address is previously abbreviated by Google within member states of the European Union or in European Economic Area states.

Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there. On behalf of the operator of this website Google will use this information in order to analyse your use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide continued services towards the website operator related to the use of the website and the Internet. The IP address transferred by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be combined with other Google data.
