- Limitation of liability
The contents of this website are prepared with the greatest possible care. However, the provided does not assume any guarantee for the correctness, completeness and currentness of the contents provided. The use of the website contents takes place at the user’s risk. Contributions which include the author’s name reflect the respective author’s opinion and not necessarily the provider’s. Simple use of the provider’s website by no means denotes the existence of a contractual relationship in any form between the user and the provider.
- External links
This website contains links to third parties’ websites (“external links”). These websites are subject to the liability of their respective operators. The provider checked whether the third-party links contain any legal violations when he made the first connection to the external links. At this point in time, no legal violations were evident. The provider has no influence whatsoever on the current and future design and contents of the linked pages. The use of external links does not mean that the provider behind the reference or link makes the contents his own. Constant checking of the external links is not reasonable to be expected of the provider without concrete information of legal violations. However, in case of knowledge of legal violations such external links will be removed immediately.
- Copyright and intellectual property rights
The contents published on this website are subject to German copyright and intellectual property rights. Each non-permissible use according to German copyright and intellectual rights must be previously agreed to in writing by the provider or the respective owner of the rights. This specifically applies to duplication, handling, translation, storage, processing and the reproduction of contents in databases or other electronic media and systems. Contents and rights belonging to third parties are marked as such here. Non-permissible duplication or passing on of individual contents or full pages is not permissible and liable to prosecution. Only the preparation of copies and downloads for personal, private and non-commercial use is permissible.
The depiction of this website in third-party frames is only permissible with written permission.
Our website makes use of so-called cookies in order to recognize repeat use of our website by the same user/internet connection subscriber. Cookies are small text files that your internet browser downloads and stores on your computer. They are used to improve our website and services. In most cases these are so-called “session cookies” that are deleted once you leave our website.
To an extent, however, these cookies also pass along information used to automatically recognize you. Recognition occurs through an IP address saved to the cookies. The information thereby obtained is used to improve our services and to expedite your access to the website.
You can prevent cookies from being installed by adjusting the settings on your browser software accordingly. You should be aware, however, that by doing so you may not be able to make full use of all the functions of our website.

For technical reasons, data such as the following, which your internet browser transmits to us or to our web space provider (so called server log files), is collected: – type and version of the browser you use – operating system – websites that linked you to our site (referrer URL) – websites that you visit – date and time of your visit – your Internet Protocol (IP) address. This anonymous data is stored separately from any personal information you may have provided, thereby making it impossible to connect it to any particular person. The data is used for statistical purposes in order to improve our website and services.
