LIABILITY FOR CONTENT
Under section 7, paragraph 1 of the TMG (Telemediengesetz – German Telemedia Act), we as service providers are liable for our own content on these pages in accordance with general laws. However, according to sections 8 to 10 of the TMG, we as service providers are not under obligation to monitor third-party information supplied or stored on our website or to seek evidence that could indicate illegal activity. This does not affect any obligations under general laws to remove or block usage of such information. However, any liability in such cases shall commence only from the point at which we become aware of a specific infringement of the law. Should we become aware of any such infringement, the content concerned will be promptly removed.
LIABILITY FOR LINKS
Our website contains links to the websites of third parties (“external links”). As the content of such websites is not under our control, we cannot assume any liability for such third-party content. In all such cases, responsibility for the content of the linked sites lies with the provider or operator of the websites concerned. At the time the links were placed on our website, their content was checked for potential infringements of the law. No unlawful content was identifiable at the time the link was created. However, permanent monitoring of the content of external links cannot be reasonably expected without any concrete indication of an infringement. Should we become aware of any such infringement, the links concerned will be promptly removed.
