Disclaimer of liability

Limitation of liability
The contents of this website have been created with the greatest care. However, the provider accepts no liability for its being correct, complete or up-to-date. Use of the website contents is entirely at the visitor’s risk. Named articles reflect the opinion of the author and not necessarily that of the provider. Merely using the provider’s website does not imply that a contractual relationship has come about between user and provider.

External links
This website contains links to external websites. The operators of such websites are liable for their content. When first providing the external link, the provider checked its content for any infringements of valid legislation. At the time of the check, no legal infringements were apparent. The provider exercises no influence whatsoever on the current and future design and content of pages it provides links to. Placing external links does not imply that the provider claims ownership of the content thus linked. The provider is unable to constantly check external links without concrete indication of legal infringement. If any such infringement comes to the provider’s attention, any links to such content will be immediately deleted.

Copyright and ancillary rights
The content published on this website is subject to the German law on copyright and ancillary rights. Any use not permitted by such legislation requires the prior written consent of the provider or copyright owner. This applies in particular to the duplication, editing, translation, storing, processing and/or reproduction of content in databases or other electronic media and systems. The content and the rights of third parties are indicated as such. Duplication or reproduction of sections or whole pages is not permitted and is liable to prosecution. Solely copies and downloads for personal, private and non-commercial use may be made.
Written consent must be sought if this website is to be displayed in non-native frames.

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, text files saved to your computer that allow analysis of your use of the website. The information created by the cookie about your use of this website (including your IP address) is sent to a Google server in the US where it is saved. Google uses this information to evaluate your use of the website and to compile reports on website activity for its operator and to provide further services related to Internet use. Google may pass this information on to third parties where required by law or if such third parties process this data on behalf of Google. Google will never connect your IP address with other data it has collected. You can prevent the installation of cookies by making the relevant settings in your browser. However, we inform you that in this case you may not be able to use all its functions in their entirety. By using this website you give your consent that the data collected about you is processed by Google in the manner and for the purposes described above.
The provider states explicitly that transferring data in the Internet (e.g. by e-mail) may be vulnerable to risks and cannot be protected entirely against access by third parties.
Use of the contact details in the publishing information for advertising purposes is expressly discouraged unless the provider has provided prior written consent or a business relationship already exists.
