The content and works on these webpages, produced by the site operator, are subject to German copyright laws. The reproduction, editing, distribution or reuse in any way beyond the limits of copyright law is subject to the prior written consent of the respective author or creator. Downloads and copies of these pages are only permitted for private, non-commercial use. Insofar as the content and works on these webpages have not been produced by the site operator, the intellectual property rights of third parties have been respected. Specifically, third party intellectual property is identified as such. Should you, however, detect a violation of copyright, we request that you inform us. We shall remove such content as soon as we are made aware that there is a breach of law.

As the provider of information, we are responsible according to general law, and specifically according to §7 Para. 1 of the Telemedia Act, for the content of these pages. According to §8 – §10 of TMG, however, providers are not obliged to monitor external data they provide or save, nor are they required to investigate or search for situations which may indicate illegal activity. The responsibility to remove or block information according to general laws is not affected by this. Liability, however, only exists from the point in time that the provider has been made aware of a definite breach of law. We shall remove offending content as soon as we are made aware that it is in breach of law.

Liability for links

This website includes links to external, third-party websites. We do not have any influence on the content of these sites. We are therefore unable to accept any liability for this third-party content. The respective providers and/or operators are responsible for the content of linked pages. The linked pages have been checked for potential breaches of law at the time of placing the link. Illegal content was not identified at the point of placing the link. Continual monitoring of the contents of linked pages is, however, not a reasonable expectation without any definite basis for suspecting a breach of law. We shall remove such links as soon as we are made aware that there is a breach of law.

We take data protection very seriously and strive at all times to ensure that the gathering, storage, and usage of personal data is in accordance with the data protection laws valid at the time. With the following data protection declaration we would like to explain to you whether or not we gather, save, and use data when you visit our website, and if so, which data.

Which personal data do we gather?

As a basic principle, we do not gather any personal data when you visit our website. We do, however, store IP addresses in the limited scope defined below; to date, it has not been conclusively established whether or not IP addresses constitute personal data.

Beyond this, we only gather personal data when we are permitted to do so by law or when you have expressly authorised us to do so. Furthermore, we only gather data needed to facilitate the optimal design of our website; we use cookies to simplify your use of our website.


We use so-called session cookies when you visit our web pages; these provide us with information on user behaviour and navigation, aiding us in the optimisation of our website. Cookies are small text files, saved on your computer, and they make it possible for us to adjust our web pages to suit your interests. When you visit our website, our server delivers our cookies to your browser. The settings in your web browser then determine whether or not these cookies are saved on your computer. If you do not want us to recognise your computer via our cookies, you may configure your browser so that it deletes all cookies from your computer’s hard disk, blocks all cookies, or warns you before saving a cookie. Such settings, however, mean that we can no longer guarantee that you can use our website in an unrestricted way.
