(1) limitation of liability
contents of this website
The contents of this website are created with the greatest possible care. However, the provider is not responsible for the accuracy, completeness and topicality of the content provided. The use of the available content is at the user’s own risk. Contributions marked by name reflect the opinion of the respective author and not always the opinion of the provider.
Availability of the website
The provider will endeavour to offer the service as uninterrupted as possible. Even with all care, downtime cannot be ruled out. The provider reserves the right to change or disadjust its offer at any time.
This website contains links to third party websites (“external links”). These websites are subject to the liability of the respective operators. When the external links were first linked, the provider checked the foreign content to see if there were any legal violations. No legal violations were apparent at that time. The provider has no influence whatsoever on the current and future design and on the contents of the linked pages. The setting of external links does not mean that the provider makes use of the content behind the reference or link. Constant control of these external links is not reasonable for the provider without concrete references to legal violations. However, if legal violations are known, such external links will be deleted immediately.
The content of the advertisements is the responsibility of the respective author, as well as the content of the advertised website. The advertisement is not accepted by the provider.
No contractual relationship
With the use of the website of the provider comes no contractual relationship between the user and the provider. In this respect, there are no contractual or quasi-contractual claims against the provider. In the event that the use of the website should lead to a contractual relationship, the following limitation of liability applies as a precautionary measure: The provider is liable for intent and gross negligence as well as for breach of a material contractual obligation (cardinal obligation). The provider is liable under limitation to compensation for foreseeable contract-typical damage at the time of conclusion of the contract for such damages, which are based on a slightly negligent breach of cardinal obligations by him or one of his legal representatives or vicarious agents. In slightly negligent breach of ancillary obligations, which are not cardinal obligations, the provider is not liable. Liability for damages that fall within the scope of a warranty or assurance provided by the provider, as well as liability for claims under the Product Liability Act and damages resulting from injury to life, body or health remains unaffected.
The contents and works published on this website are protected by copyright. Any use not permitted by German copyright law requires the prior written consent of the respective author or author. This applies in particular to duplication, processing, translation, storage, processing or reproduction of content in databases or other electronic media and systems. Content and contributions of third parties are marked as such. The unauthorized duplication or passing on of individual contents or complete sides is not permitted and punishable. Only the production of copies and downloads for personal, private and non-commercial use is permitted.
Links to the website of the provider are always welcome and do not require the consent of the provider of the website. The presentation of this website in external frames is only permitted with permission.
