Content Liability
All content for this website was created with the greatest possible of care. The provider assumes no liability for the accuracy and timeliness of the provided, freely accessible contributions. Contributions identified by name reflect the opinion of the respective author and not necessarily always the opinion of the provider. Should the contributions contain illegal content, the provider will remove or block them. However, corresponding actions can only be taken from the time point of the knowledge of a concrete infringement. Upon becoming aware of such infringements, this content will be removed immediately.

Link Liability
The website contains links to external websites over whose content the provider has no influence. Therefore, no liability can be assumed for the external content. The external content was checked for possible legal violations at the time of linking. Illegal content was not recognized at the time of linking. The provider has no influence on the future content of the linked pages. A permanent control of the contents of the linked pages is not reasonable without any concrete evidence of a concrete violation. Such links will be removed immediately if infringements become known.
