Although we have designed our website with great care and due diligence, cannot guarantee nor be held legally liable for the complete accuracy, integrity, or actuality of content hosted on our website. Generally speaking, as a service provider under German law we are legally responsible for the content on this site. But the law does not expect us to permanently monitor third-party data, nor are we obliged to proactively research circumstances that might indicate unlawful activities.

Similarly, may contain links to external websites over which we have no influence. We could not determine an infringement of existing laws at the time of placing such links; but again, we are unable to permanently monitor the content of external providers in the absence of a specific indication of infringement. Because we have no control over third-party activities, we cannot be held responsible for content hosted on domains other than our own. Upon learning of any abuses — for example, by notification from legitimate site users or following verified requests from law enforcement — we will immediately take steps to remove the offending link.
