Any personal data collected through this website is treated confidentially and is protected against unauthorised access through appropriate safeguards. We cannot, however, accept responsibility or liability for the protection of data that is transferred electronically.

LIABILITY FOR CONTENTS

The contents of our sites have been compiled with the greatest care. However, we cannot accept liability for the accuracy, completeness and actuality of the contents. Pursuant to Section 7 Para. 1 of the German Teleservices Act (TMG), as a service provider we are responsible for our own content on this website under general law. According to Sections 8 to 10 of TMG, however, we are not responsible as a service provider to monitor transferred or stored information of third parties or to research circumstances that indicate illegal activity. Obligations to remove or block the use of information under general laws remain unaffected. Any liability in this respect is, however, only possible from the moment that knowledge of a specific breach of the law is obtained. We will remove these contents immediately upon discovery of any corresponding infringements.

LIABILITY FOR LINKS

Our online presence contains links to external websites of third parties, whose contents are not subject to our influence. For this reason we also cannot assume any guarantee for this external content. The respective provider or operator of the linked website is always responsible for the contents of the respective site. The linked pages were checked for possible legal infringements when the links were created. Illegal contents were not in evidence at the time of linking. However, permanent checking of the content of the linked pages is not reasonable as long as no specific indications of a legal violation exists. Should any infringements become known, we will remove the respective links immediately.

Insofar as the contents on this page were not created by the operator, the copyrights of third parties are recognised. In particular, the content of third parties is identified as such. Nevertheless, should you become aware of a copyright violation, we request that you notify us accordingly. We will remove the respective contents immediately upon becoming aware of any infringements.

DATA PROTECTION

If personal data is collected on our website (e.g. name, address or e-mail addresses), this is always done on a voluntary basis where possible. This data will not be forwarded to third parties without your express permission.

We wish to point out that data transfer on the internet (e.g. during communication via e-mail) can be subject to security vulnerabilities. Complete protection of data from access by third parties is not possible.
