Disclaimer for users of the website

1. Limitation of liability

2. External Links

This website has links to the websites of third parties ("external links").  These websites are subject to the liability of the respective operator. When the external links were created for the first time, the provider checked the third party content for any possible legal violations. At that time, no legal violations were apparent.The provider has no influence on the current and future design and content of the linked sites. The provision of external links does not mean that the provider  makes the content behind the reference or link his own. It is not reasonable to expect the provider to exercise permanent control over the external links without concrete evidence of legal violations. If we become aware of any legal violations, however, any such external links will be deleted immediately.
