Legal note:

According to the judgement of 12 May 1998 – 312 O 85/98 – ‘Liability for links’, the state court of Hamburg ruled that by featuring a link on one’s site, one may also be held responsible for the content of the linked site. This may – according to the state court – only be avoided by explicitly distancing oneself from the content on linked sites. We hereby explicitly distance ourselves from all content on all linked sites across the entire site, and do not have any claim to their content.

The information provided on this website was carefully checked and is regularly updated. However, we cannot guarantee that all information is always complete, correct or in its most current form. This is especially valid for all links to other websites, to which we refer either directly or indirectly. Any information may be added to, removed or altered without prior notice.

If incorrect information is published on, or if there are errors in programs or databases, we may only be held liable where gross negligence of the corporation or its employees is the cause.
