Data Privacy

Content of the website

We do not provide any warranty in regard to the information provided being up to date, correct or complete, or concerning its quality. Any liability claims against us which refer to losses of a material or notional nature which have been caused through the use or non-use of the information presented or through the use of erroneous and incomplete information shall, in principle, not be entertained unless there is proven fault on our part based on intent or gross negligence. We expressly reserve the right to amend, supplement or delete sections of the web pages or the entire website without any specific announcement, or temporarily or permanently cease to publish them.


Indications, news, links and RSS feeds

In the case of either direct or indirect references to web pages (“links”) and news feeds (RSS feeds) which exclusively fall outside our sphere of responsibility, any obligation to assume liability would only come into force in the event of our being aware of the content and it being technically possible and reasonable for us to prevent use in the case of any illegitimate content. We therefore expressly declare that the corresponding linked pages were free of any illegal content as at the date of the link being placed. We have no control whatsoever over the current and future design or content of the linked pages. We therefore hereby expressly dissociate ourselves from any content of any linked pages which has been changed after the links have been placed. This provision shall apply to both any links and references placed on our own website and any third party entries in any visitors’ books, discussion forums or mailing lists set up by us. Solely the provider of the page to which reference has been made shall be liable for any illegal, erroneous or incomplete content, and in particular for any losses arising from the use or non-use of such information displayed, and not the party merely making reference to the respective publication via links.


Copyright and trademark law

We endeavour to pay attention to the copyrights of the graphics, audio files, video sequences and texts used, and make use of graphics, audio files, video sequences and texts that we have created ourselves, or to use graphics, audio files, video sequences and texts not subject to any licence in any publications. Any trademarks mentioned on the website and any trademarks protected by third parties shall, to an unlimited extent, be subject to the provisions of the respective applicable trademark law and the proprietary rights of the respective registered proprietors. The conclusion is not to be drawn, solely on the basis of a trademark merely being named, that trademarks are not protected by rights of third parties! We shall retain the copyright for any objects that we ourselves have created. It is not permitted to duplicate or use such graphics, audio files, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications without our express consent. Should any of these proprietors not be in agreement with the publication of the data shown here, they should please let us know. We shall then remove the data/information once we are aware of the notification.
