Data privacy statement

1. Limitation of liability

The content of this website is created with the greatest possible care. However, the provider does not accept responsibility for the information provided being correct, complete and up-to-date. The use of the website content is at the user’s own risk. Personally identified contributions reflect the opinion of the author in question and not necessarily the opinion of the provider. The use of the provider’s website shall not by itself give rise to any contractual relationship between the user and the provider.

2. External links

This website contains links to third-party websites (“external links”). These websites are subject to the liability of the relevant operators. When first linking to these external websites, the provider checked the third-party content to determine whether it contained any legal infringements. At that time, no legal infringements were apparent. The provider has no influence over current and future design or over the content of the linked web pages. The creation of external links does not mean that the provider is appropriating the content behind the reference or link. The provider cannot be expected to carry on continuous monitoring of the external links unless alerted to specific legal infringements. If any legal infringements are established, however, such external links will be deleted immediately.

3. Copyright and ancillary copyright rights

The content published on this website is subject to German copyright and ancillary copyright law. Any use not permitted under German copyright and ancillary copyright law shall require the prior written consent of the provider or the appropriate copyright owner. This applies in particular to copying, editing, translation, storage, processing or reproduction of content in databases or other electronic media and systems. Third-party content and rights are identified as such. The unauthorised copying or reproduction of individual content items or complete pages is not authorised and liable to prosecution. Only the creation of copies and downloads for personal, private and non-commercial use is permitted. Displaying this website in third-party frames is only permissible with prior written permission.

4. Data protection

Information about access (date, time, page viewed) may be stored as a result of visiting the provider’s website. This data is not personal data but is anonymised. It is analysed solely for statistical purposes. It is not passed to third parties for commercial or non-commercial purposes. The provider expressly warns that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) may be subject to security breaches and cannot be completely protected against third-party access. The use for commercial advertising of the contact data contained in the Imprint section is expressly not desired unless the provider has given prior written consent or there is already an existing business relationship. The provider and all individuals identified on this website hereby object to their data being circulated and used for any commercial purpose.

Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and which make it possible to analyse your use of the website. The information that the cookie generates about your use of this website (including your IP address) is passed to a Google server in the USA, where it is stored.
