This website, including all of its content such as, in particular, texts, graphics, photos, videos, etc. contained on the individual pages is protected by copyright. Services of third parties are marked as such. Any physical or electronic/digital exploitation outside the boundaries of the copyright law – even of just individual components and adaptations – requires the prior written consent from the website owner. This applies, in particular, to the reproduction/downloads and provision of public access to texts, graphics, photos and videos of this website for and within any form of other publications.
The website owner, conversely, will always endeavours to comply with the copyrights of third parties, i.e. to make use of works created by itself or licence-free works or, in the case of the use of works protected by copyright of third parties, to obtain the corresponding consent.

Limitation of Liability / Disclaimer
Content and technical context
Pursuant to § 7 (1) of the German Telemedia Act (TMG) the website owner only assumes liability for its own content of this website pursuant to the general statutory provisions.
Compensation claims of all kinds (e.g. due to damage of a material or immaterial nature that is caused by the usage or non-usage of the information on the website; damage that is caused by the usage of incorrect or incomplete information, etc.) against the website owner are excluded, regardless of the legal grounds for these, unless the website owner has acted in an intentional or grossly negligent manner. The website owner is only liable for simple negligence if a contractual obligation essential for achieving the purpose of the contract has been violated by the website owner, as well as in the case of damage arising from injury to life, body or health. The website owner is only liable for foreseeable damages which must typically be anticipated to occur.
No guarantee is assumed for the information on the website being correct, complete, up-to-date and available at all times. The user is aware that the full functioning and operational readiness of the website cannot be guaranteed and accordingly the website owner is not liable under any circumstances for such circumstances. In particular, necessary adjustments, changes and additions to the website as well as measures that serve to determine and rectify malfunctions can result in a temporary interruption or impairment of the operational readiness. The use of the internet is at the user’s own risk. The website owner is in particular not liable for the un-availability of the internet or access to the internet for technical reasons.
According to §§ 8-10 of the German Telemedia Act (TMG), there is no obligation to monitor transmitted or saved third-party information. As soon as breaches of the law become known, the corresponding contents will be removed immediately.
References and links to websites of third parties do not mean that the website owner adopts the content to where the reference or link is made as its own. The contents do not constitute any responsibility on the part of the website owner for the data and information contained therein. The website owner has no influence on the content behind the link. The website owner consequently is not liable for illegal, incorrect or incomplete content and for damage that has been caused by the use of the content behind the link, but rather the provider of the site to which the link is made. At the time of setting the links, the contents of the sites that were linked to were checked for possible legal infringements and no illegal contents were detected. Since it cannot be reasonably expected that checks are made of the content of these linked sites permanently or at regular intervals without specific indications of a breach of the law, the website owner hereby explicitly distances itself from all content that has been changed after the links were established. If, however, legal breaches should become known, the links to the sites with illegal content will be removed immediately.
