Disclaimer – legal notes

1. Limitation of liability

Content of this website
The content of this website is compiled with the greatest possible care. Nevertheless, the provider cannot guarantee that the information provided is entirely correct, complete and up to date in all cases. Use of the content is at the user’s own risk. Contributions showing the author’s name reflect the opinion of the respective author, which is not always that of the provider.

Website availability
The provider will endeavour to provide the online service in an uninterrupted manner. However, despite the utmost care, downtimes cannot always be avoided. The provider reserves the right to change the content or to discontinue providing content at any time.

External links
This website contains links to the websites of third parties (“external links”). Liability for these websites lies with the respective operators. When initially placing these external links on its website, the provider checked their content for any legal infringements. At that time, no legal infringements were apparent. The provider has no influence whatsoever on the current or future design and content of the linked websites. The placing of external links does not mean that the provider assumes responsibility for the content to which the reference or link leads. In the absence of definite indications of legal infringements, continuous monitoring of these external links cannot reasonably be expected of the provider. However, if any legal infringements become known, such external links will be removed without delay.

The respective authors are responsible for the content of advertisements and the content of the promoted websites. The presentation of the advertisement does not constitute acceptance on the part of the provider.

No contractual relationship
The use of the provider’s website does not constitute any contractual relationship between the user and the provider. In this respect, no contractual or quasi-contractual claims can arise against the provider.

The provider and all persons named on this website herewith express their objection to any commercial use or transmission of their data.
