While the greatest of care has been taken in preparing the content of our website we give no guarantee that the content is accurate, complete or up to date. As a service provider, we are responsible for our own information contained on these pages in accordance with general statutory provisions. We are not, however, under any obligation to monitor third-party content which is transmitted or stored here, or to investigate any circumstances which indicate unlawful activity. This is without prejudice to any obligation to remove or block the use of information under general statutory provisions, although liability in this respect can only arise from the date on which we become aware of an actual infringement of the law. We shall remove the offending content as soon as we become aware of any such infringement.

Liability for Links

Our website contains links to external third-party websites the content of which is beyond our control. We cannot therefore accept any liability for the content of these external websites. Responsibility for the content of linked sites lies exclusively with the provider or operator of those sites. The linked websites were examined for any infringement of the law when the link was set up. No unlawful content was apparent at that time.


The content and works prepared by the operator of the website and shown on these pages are subject to German copyright law. Duplication, processing, distribution and all types of exploitation which go beyond the limits of copyright law require the written consent of the respective author or originator. Downloads and copies of this website are permitted for private use only and not for commercial purposes. Insofar as any content of this website has not been prepared by the operator, the copyright of third-parties has been respected in particular, by identifying third-party content as such. If, in spite of these efforts, you become aware of a breach of copyright, please notify us accordingly. We shall remove the offending content as soon as we become aware of any infringement.
