Liability for content
The content of our web pages was compiled with the utmost diligence. However, we cannot accept any liability for the correctness, completeness and currentness of the content. As a service provider, we are responsible for our own content on these pages pursuant to § 7 Para 1 German Broadcast Media Act (TMG), however we are not obliged, according to §§ 8 to 10 German Broadcast Media Act, to check external information possibly saved or transferred without solicitation. Obligations to remove or block the use of information shall remain unaffected by this. Any liability in this respect is only possible, however, from the time at which a concrete violation is discovered. We will then remove this content immediately.

Liability for inks
Our website also contains links to external websites of third parties, for which we are not responsible regarding content. We cannot therefore assume liability for this third-party content. The respective operator of the third-party website is responsible for the contents of those pages linked on our website.

At the time of embedding the link, these web pages were checked for possible legal violations; we could not identify any illegal content at this time. However, a permanent checking of the content of these linked sites without concrete evidence for a legal violation is not reasonable. If violations are identified, the offending links will be removed immediately.

Any copying, processing, distribution and any form of exploitation outside the boundaries of the German Copyright Act (Urheberrecht) requires the written approval of the respective author or creator. Downloads and copies of this site are only permitted for private, non-commercial use. Wherever the contents of this site were not created by the operator, the copyrights of third parties must be observed. Content belonging to third parties shall be highlighted as such in particular. Despite all due diligence, copyright violations cannot in general be excluded. In this respect, we ask that you provide corresponding references so that offending links can be removed immediately upon identification of legal violations.

Privacy policy for use of Google +1
With the help of the Google +1 button, you can publish information globally. Using the Google +1 button, you and other users can get personalised content from Google and our partners. Google registers that you have logged a +1 for a piece of content, and also saves information on the page you saw when clicking on +1.

Your +1, together with your profile name and your Google account photo, may be displayed as a link, for example in search results, on your Google profile, or at other locations on websites and internet advertisements.
Google logs information about your +1 activities in order to improve its services for you and others. In order to be able to use the Google +1 button, you will require a globally visible, public Google profile that must contain at least the name selected for the profile. This name is used for all Google services. In some cases, this name may also replace another name that you have used when sharing content via your Google account. The identity of your Google profile may be shown to users who know your e-mail address or who hold other identifying information about you.

Besides the applications described above, the information you make available will be used pursuant to the provisions of Google's privacy policy. Google may publish compiled statistics on the +1 activities or users or pass this on to users and partners, such as publishers, advertisers or affiliated websites.
