(1) Limitation of liability
Contents of this website
The contents of this website have been compiled with the utmost care. The provider shall not, however, be held liable for the correctness, completeness and updating of the contents provided. The user shall use the available contents at his or her own risk. Contributions assigned by name to writers reflect the opinion of the respective writers, which is not necessarily the opinion of the provider. As a service provider we are responsible according to § 7 paragraph 1 of TMG (German Telemedia Act) for the content of this site under the general law. According to §§ 8 to 10 TMG, as a service provider we are not, however, obligated to monitor transmitted or stored external information or to research into circumstances that suggest an illegal activity. Obligations to remove or block the use of information in accordance with the general laws remain unaffected by this. Any liability in this respect is, however, only incurred from the moment that knowledge of the specific breach of law is obtained. As soon as such breaches of law are known, we shall remove the relevant content immediately.
Availability of website
The provider shall endeavour to ensure that the service can be retrieved with as few disruptions as possible. But, even with all due care, downtimes cannot be precluded. The provider reserves the right to amend or cancel the offer at any time.
This website contains links to websites of third parties ("external links"). These websites are the responsibility of the respective operators. The provider verified the third-party contents at the time the initial link was created in order to determine any legal violations. At that time, no legal violations were apparent The provider does not have any influence on the current and future design and content of the linked pages. The placing of external links does not mean that the provider has adopted the content behind the reference or link as his own. The provider cannot be expected to constantly monitor these external links without any concrete evidence of legal violations. With knowledge of legal violations, however, such external links shall be deleted immediately.
The respective author is responsible for the content of the advertisements and for the content of the website that is promoted. Displaying the advertisement shall not constitute acceptance of its content by the provider.
No contractual relationship
Using the provider's website does not result in a contractual relationship between the user and the provider. In this respect there is also no ground for any contractual or quasi-contractual claims against the provider. However, in the event that use of the website should lead to a contractual relationship, the following liability limitations shall apply: The provider is liable for intent and gross negligence as well as for the breach of an essential contractual obligation. The provider's liability is limited to the damages typically applicable to such a contract at the time that the contract came into effect, which are caused by the slightly negligent violation of essential contractual obligations or are caused by his legal representatives or agents. The provider is not liable for the slightly negligent violation of secondary obligations that are not essential contractual obligations. Liability for damages that occur in the scope of a guarantee or assurance given by the provider and liability for claims on the basis of the product liability law and damages resulting from injury to life, body or health remain unaffected by this.
