Liability for content
Responsibility for content on individual web pages rests with the institutions or persons who have uploaded this content. The content of our websites has been put together with greatest care. Nevertheless, we cannot give any guarantee for the correctness, completeness or relevance of this content. As a service provider, we are responsible by law for our own content on these web pages, in accordance with § 7 paragraph 1 of the Telemediengesetz, TMG [German Act on Telemedia Services]. According to §§ 8 to 10 of TMG, we are not obliged as service providers to monitor communicated or stored third-party information or to research for circumstances that point towards unlawful activity. Obligations to remove or block the use of information according to the general laws are unaffected by this. We can only be held liable from the point in time that we become aware of a specific violation of law. However, should we become aware of any violations of law, we shall immediately delete the unlawful content.
Liability for links
Our Internet presence contains links to external websites of third parties, the content of which we have no influence over. Therefore, we cannot be held liable for this third party content. The providers of the linked sites are solely responsible for their content. At the time of creating these links, we check the linked sites for possible violations of law. No unlawful content was detectable at the time of linking. However, without specific evidence for a violation of law, it is not feasible to conduct continuous checks of the content of linked sites. However, should we become aware of any violations of law, we shall immediately delete the corresponding links.
