1. Limitation of liability
The contents of this website have been created with the utmost care. The provider assumes no responsibility for the correctness, completeness or topicality of the information provided. The user assumes all risks for the use of contents on the website. Bylined articles reflect the opinion of the author and not necessarily the opinion of the provider. No contractual relationship between the user and the provider arises through the mere use of the provider’s website.
2. External links
This website contains links to third-party websites (“external links”). The respective operators are responsible for the contents of these websites. Upon initial connection to the external links, the provider checked the third-party content for any statutory violations. No statutory violations were apparent at the time. The provider has no influence whatsoever on the current and future design or the contents of the linked pages. The connection to external links does not mean that the provider endorses the contents behind the reference or link. Constant monitoring of external links by the provider is not possible without concrete evidence of violations. If, however, the provider is made aware of statutory violations, such external links will be deleted immediately.
3. Copyright and intellectual property
The contents published on this website are subject to German copyright and intellectual property law. Any use not permitted by German copyright and intellectual property law requires the previous written consent of the provider or the respective owner of the rights. This applies in particular to reproduction, editing, translation, storage, processing or reproduction of contents in databases or other electronic media and systems. The content and rights of third parties are identified as such. Unauthorized reproduction or distribution of individual contents or complete pages is prohibited and punishable by law. Only the production of copies and downloads for personal, private and non-commercial use is allowed.
The presentation of this website using other frames is permitted only with written permission.
4. Data protection
When visiting the website of the provider, access information (date, time, page viewed) may be stored. These data are anonymous and do not include personal data. They are evaluated exclusively for statistical purposes. No transfer to third parties, for commercial or non-commercial purposes, takes place.
The provider expressly points out that data transmission on the Internet (such as when communicating by email) is subject to security gaps and cannot be protected completely against access by third parties.
The use of company contact data and information for commercial advertising is expressly not allowed unless the provider has previously provided written consent or a business relationship already exists. The provider and all persons named on this website hereby object to any commercial use and disclosure of their data.
You may visit our website without disclosure of personal data. Insofar as personal data (such as name, address or email address) is collected by us, this occurs as far as possible on a voluntary basis. These data are not passed to third parties without your explicit consent. Insofar as a contractual relationship between you and us is to be established, shaped in terms of content, or modified, or you make an inquiry to us, we collect and use personal data from you as far as necessary for these purposes (inventory data). We collect, process and use personal data insofar as this is necessary to enable you to use the website (usage data). All personal data is stored only as long as is necessary for the mentioned purpose (processing your inquiry or concluding a contract). Storage periods related to tax law and commercial law are observed here. By order of the competent authorities, we may provide information about this (inventory data) in individual cases insofar as this is necessary for purposes of law enforcement, security, the statutory tasks of intelligence agencies or military intelligence, or the enforcement of intellectual property rights.
As part of the comments feature, we collect personal data (such as name, email), when you comment on a post, only to the extent that you have provided such data to us. When you publish a comment, your email address is stored but not displayed. Your name is displayed unless you have written under a pseudonym.
This website uses a plugin from the provider Facebook.com, which has been made available by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. Users of our website on which the Facebook plugin (“like” button) is installed are hereby notified that the plugin establishes a connection to Facebook and a transfer to your browser takes place so that the plugin appears on the website. Through this use, data is also transferred to the Facebook server, which receives information about your visit to our home page. If the user is logged in to Facebook, this means the usage data will be associated with their personal Facebook account. If the logged-in user actively uses the Facebook plugin (for example, by clicking on the “like” button or using the comments feature), these data are transferred to their Facebook account and displayed. This can be avoided only by first logging out of your Facebook account.
For more information regarding the use of data through Facebook, please refer to the data protection provisions on Facebook under http://de-de.facebook.com/policy.php.
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, which are text files that are stored on your computer and enable analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookies about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the United States and stored there. We have enabled IP anonymisation.

The IP address sent by your browser in the framework of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data from Google. You can prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting your browser software accordingly. It should be noted, however, that you may not be able to use all features of this website fully in this case. In addition, you can prevent the acquisition of these data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) by Google, as well as the processing of these data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de

Through the use of web beacons, simple actions, such as visitor traffic on the website, can be recorded and collected.

Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website in terms of ads in order to compile reports about website activities and ads for the website operator and in order to provide further services related to website activity and Internet usage. Google may also transmit this information to third parties insofar as this is required by law or insofar as third parties process this data on behalf of Google. Under no circumstances will Google connect your IP address with other Google data.
