Liability for content
The content of this website has been compiled with the utmost care. However, we cannot accept liability for the correctness, completeness or currency of the content. In accordance with Art. 7, Section 1, TMG (German Internet Act), we as service providers are responsible for our own content on this site under general laws. According to Arts. 8 to 10, TMG, we as service providers are not obliged to monitor transmitted or stored third-party data or search for evidence of illegal activity. Our obligations to remove or block the use of data under general laws remain unaffected by this. However, liability in this respect is only possible from the time of knowledge of a specific infringement of the law. As soon as we become aware of such infringements of the law, we shall remove this content without delay.
Liability for links
Our website contains links to external third-party websites, over the content of which we have no influence. We cannot therefore accept any guarantee for this third-party content. The external provider or website operator is always responsible for the content of the linked websites. The linked websites were checked for possible infringements of the law at the time of linking. Illegal content was not identifiable at the time of linking. However, it would be unacceptable for us to continuously check the content of the linked websites without specific evidence of an infringement of the law. As soon as we become aware of such infringements of the law, we shall remove such links without delay.
The content and work on these websites issued by the website operators are subject to German copyright. The duplication, editing, dissemination and any form of exploitation beyond the bounds of copyright require the written approval of the author or issuer in question. Downloads and copies of this website are only permitted for private, non-commercial use. If the content on this website is not issued by the operator, third-party copyright is observed. Third-party content is thus marked as such. If you nevertheless become aware of a copyright infringement, we request you to notify us accordingly. As soon as we become aware of such infringements of the law, we shall remove this content without delay.
It is usually possible to use our website without disclosing personal data. Should personal data (e.g. name, postal address or email address) be gathered on our website, this is always done as far as possible on a voluntary basis. These data are not passed on to third parties without your explicit consent.
We wish to point out that data transmission on the Internet, e.g. during communication by email, is not always entirely secure. Complete protection of data from third-party access is not possible.
We explicitly oppose the third-party use of contact data published in connection with the website credits for the transmission of not explicitly requested advertising and information material. The operators of the website explicitly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising information, e.g. in spam mail.
Data protection declaration for the use of Google Analytics
This website makes use of Google Analytics, a Web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, i.e. text files that can be stored on your computer to facilitate the analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie on the use of this website are generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. If IP anonymising is activated on this website, your IP address is abbreviated beforehand within the member states of the European Union or other states party to the agreement on the European Economic Area.
Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your website usage in order to compile reports on website activity and in order to provide further services associated with website and Internet use for the website operator. Google does not bring together the IP address transmitted by Google Analytics from your browser with other data.
You can opt out of cookie storage by adjusting your browser software accordingly; we must however point out that you may then be unable to make full use of all functions of this website. Furthermore, you can prevent the collection of the data (including your IP address) generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website and the processing of these data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB.
Data protection declaration for the use of Facebook plugins (Like button)
Plugins of the social network Facebook, 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA are also integrated on our website. The Facebook plugins are identified by the Facebook logo and the Like button on our website. You can find an overview of Facebook plugins here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
When you access our website, the plugin establishes a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook server. In this way Facebook obtains the information that you have visited our website with your IP address. When you click the Facebook Like button while you are logged into your Facebook account, you can link the content of our website to your Facebook profile. As a result, Facebook can assign the visit to our website to your user account. We must point out that we as the provider of the website receive no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or of their use by Facebook. Further information on this can be found in the Facebook data use policy statement at
If you do not wish Facebook to assign the visit to our website to your Facebook user account, please log out of your Facebook user account.
Data protection declaration for the use of Google +1
Data collection and transfer
With the aid of the Google +1 button, you can publish data worldwide. Via the Google +1 button, you and other users receive personalised data from Google and our partners. Google stores both the information that you have given +1 for content and information on the page that you have seen when clicking +1. Your +1 can be indicated as reference data with your profile name and picture in Google services, such as in search results or in your Google profile, or elsewhere on websites and advertisements on the Internet.
Google records data on your +1 activities in order to improve Google services for you and others. To use the Google +1 button, you need an internationally visible, public Google profile that must contain at least the name selected for the profile. This name is used in all Google services. In some cases, this name can also replace another name that you have used when sharing content via your Google account. The identity of your Google profile can be indicated to users who know your email address or have other identifying information from you.
Use of the collected data
In addition to the purposes explained above, the data you make available is used in accordance with the valid Google data protection provisions. Google may publish summarised statistics on +1 activities or users or pass it on to users and partners, such as publishers, advertisers or associated websites.
Data protection declaration for the use of Twitter
The functions of the Twitter service are integrated in our website. These functions are provided by Twitter Inc., Twitter, Inc. 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA. By using Twitter and the Re-Tweet function, the websites you visit are linked to your Twitter account and disclosed to other users. In this connection, data are also transmitted to Twitter.
We must point out that we as the provider of the website have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data and of their use by Twitter. You can find further information on this in the Twitter data privacy declaration at https://twitter.com/privacy.
You can change your data protection settings at Twitter in the account settings at https://twitter.com/account/settings.
