Content of the website
The content of this website has been compiled with the utmost care. The provider does not, however, guarantee the accuracy, completeness, and timeliness of the content. The use of all content that can be accessed is at the user’s own risk. Contributions attributed to a specific author reflect the opinion of that author and may not always reflect the opinion of the website provider.
Availability of the website
The website provider shall endeavor to provide access to the website without interruption to the greatest degree possible. However, despite all due diligence and care, downtimes cannot always be avoided. The website provider retains the right to change or discontinue its offerings at any time.
This website contains links to third-party websites (“external links”). The respective provider or operator is responsible for the contents of external websites linked here. The provider of this website has no control over the current or future design or the content of these third-party websites. Providing third-party links does not mean that the provider of this website has adopted the content of websites that are referred to or for which links are provided as its own. It is unreasonable to require that the provider of this website constantly reviews these third-party websites without concrete evidence of violations of the law. As soon as the provider of this website becomes aware of any violations of the law, the affected third-party links shall promptly be deleted.
The respective author is responsible for the content of advertisements and for the content of the advertised website. Displaying an advertisement does not constitute acceptance of the content by the provider of this website.
No contractual relationship
Using the provider’s website does not constitute a contractual relationship between the website provider and the user. Therefore, no contractual or quasi-contractual claims against the website provider can be derived from use of the provider’s website. In the event that the use of the website does result in a contractual relationship, the following limitation of liability shall apply solely for precautionary purposes:
The website provider is liable in the event of intent and gross negligence and in the event of a breach of a significant contractual obligation (cardinal obligation). The provider’s liability is limited to compensation for damages foreseeable at the time the contract was executed given the nature of the agreement that are due to minor negligence and result in a breach of cardinal obligations by the provider or one of its legal representatives or vicarious agents The provider is not liable in the event of a breach of ancillary obligations due to minor negligence that are not cardinal obligations. Liability for damages that occur within the scope of a guarantee or assurance given by the provider and liability for claims based on the German Product Liability Act [Produkthaftungsgesetz] and damages sustained through injury to life, limb, and health shall remain unaffected hereby.

This information is not deemed to be personal information but is anonymous. This information is analyzed solely for statistical purposes. It is not shared with third parties for commercial or non-commercial purposes.
The provider explicitly stipulates that data transmission on the Internet (e.g., when communicating by email) may be subject to security vulnerabilities and cannot be fully protected from being accessed by third parties.
The use of the contact details given in the provider identification, including, but not limited to the telephone/fax numbers and email address, for the purpose of commercial advertising is expressly unwelcome unless the provider has given its prior consent in written form or a business relationship already exists.
