1. Limitation of Liability

The supplier of this website assumes no liability for the correctness, completeness or timeliness of the offered contents. Contents identifiable by their author's name reflect the author's opinion only. Use of this website establishes no contractual relationship between user and supplier.

2. External Links

This Website contains links to websites of third parties ('external links'). Those websites are under the liability of their respective suppliers only. The supplier has no influence whatsoever on the current or future design and contents of the linked pages. Creating external links does not involve appropriation of the contents connected to the link or reference. A commentary in HTML code contains information on the date the link was created. At the time the link was first created there was no evidence of statutory violation. However, external links are deleted immediately upon knowledge of statutory violation.

The contents published on this website are protected by the German copyright and neighbouring rights law. Prior to content use not in accordance with the German copyright and neighbouring rights law, written consent is required from the supplier or respective holder of rights, unless otherwise stated (e.g. in the press section). This holds especially for duplication, editing, translating, data storage, processing or reproduction of contents in databases or other electronic media and systems. Contents and rights of third parties are identified as such. The illegal duplication or passing on of individual contents or entire pages is prohibited and presents a criminal act. Users may produce copies and downloads for personal and non-commercial use only.

The presentation of this website in foreign frames requires the supplier's written consent.

See the German version for details about third-party rights.

4. Data Protection

Using the supplier's website may lead to the storage of access information (date, time, pages visited). This data is anonymised and does not form part of the personal data. It is evaluated exclusively for statistical purposes.

Only that information is automatically stored which the browser has transmitted to the web server; this includes cookies, which represent random numbers and are created in order to differentiate among different users. These cookies do not enable inferences about the person of the user. IP addresses are anonymised by not storing the final byte. There is absolutely no gathering of information via Java Script. The supplier deliberately refrains from using Google Analytics.

There is no disclosure of data to third parties for commercial or non-commercial use. This holds for automatically stored data as well as for data which the user enters via forms on the website (e.g. the contact form).

The supplier makes it clear that data transfer on the internet (e.g. in email communication) presents a security hazard and cannot be completely safeguarded against access by third parties.

Using the contact information provided in the legal notice for commercial advertising is expressly not permitted, unless the supplier has given written consent or a business relationship exists between user and suppier. The supplier and all persons mentioned on the website object to any commercial use and disclosure of their data.
