The content of our site has been compiled with the utmost care. We are, however, unable to guarantee its correctness, completeness and up-to-dateness. As a service provider we are, according to § 7 para.1 TMG (German Telemedia Act), responsible for our own content on this website in accordance with general laws. However, according to §§ 8 to 10 TMG, we as service provider are not obliged to monitor transferred or stored information of third parties or investigate any indication of unlawful activity. This does not affect any obligations for the removal or blocking of use of information in accordance with general laws. However, liability in this respect is only possible from the actual time of knowledge of a specific infringement. If a specific infringement becomes known to us we will remove this content immediately.

Liability for links

Our site contains links to external sites of third parties, the content of which we have no influence on. We therefore assume no liability for the content of these sites. It is solely the relevant provider or operator that is responsible for this content of linked sites. The linked sites were examined for any possible statutory violation at the time of linking and no illegal content was recognised at that time. However, ongoing control of the content of the linked sites without any specific indication of a violation is not possible. We will remove any links as soon as we become aware of any violation.


The content and works created by the site operator are subject to German copyright law. The reproduction, processing, publication and any form of use outside the limitations of copyright law requires the written agreement of the relevant author / provider. Any downloads and copies of this site are only permitted for private, non-commercial use. If the content of this site is not created by the operator, the copyright laws of the third parties are to be observed. Content of third parties is indicated as such. If you do, however, become aware of an infringement of copyright law, please inform us. We will remove such content as soon as we become aware of any violation.

Data protection 

The use of our website is generally possible without stating any person related data. If our site does require person related data (for example name, address or email address) this is done as much as possible on a voluntary basis. This data is not passed on to third parties unless you give express permission indicating otherwise.

We would like to point out that online data transmission (e.g. communication via e-mail) can involve security gaps and a complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.

We hereby expressly object to the use of contact data, published within the limitations of the imprint obligation, by third parties for sending un-requested advertising and information material. The operators of the sites have the right to take legal steps if advertising material e.g. spam mails are sent un-requested.
