Liability for Content

The obligations to remove or block the use of information in accordance with general laws remain unaffected by this. However, liability in this regard is only possible from the time when knowledge of a specific violation of the law is received. We will remove the content concerned immediately after we become aware of corresponding violations of the law.

Our liability for own content, as a service provider, complies with common laws.

Liability for Links

The relevant operator of the pages remains responsible for the content of linked pages at all times. At the time of generating the link no illegal content could be identified.

We will remove relevant links immediately in the event that we become aware of violations of the law.
