Exclusion of Liability

Content of the online offering

Claims against the operator of the website based on liability relating to both material as well as intangible damages resulting from using or not using the provided information or by using incorrect or incomplete information are generally excluded unless the operator is proven to have engaged in intentional or grossly negligent misconduct.  All offerings are non-binding.  The operator of the website expressly reserves the right to modify, supplement, delete or temporarily or permanently stop publication of parts of the pages or the entire offering without any separate advance notice.

References and links

Copyright and trademarks

Data privacy

If the internet offering includes the possibility to enter personal or business data (email addresses, names, addresses), such data is disclosed by the user on an expressly voluntary basis.  Use and payment of all offered services, to the extent technically possible and reasonable, is also permitted without providing such data or providing anonymized data or a synonym.  Use by third parties of the contact data published in the Publishing Information or comparable information, such as postal address, telephone and telefax numbers as well as email addresses for the purpose of sending information that has not been expressly requested is prohibited.  Legal action is expressly reserved against parties sending so-called spam mails if this prohibition is violated.
