1. Content of the Online Offering
    We do not assume any liability for the timeliness, correctness, completeness, or quality of the provided information. Claims for liability against us relating to material or non-material damage caused by the use or non-use of the presented information or by the use of incorrect and incomplete information are fundamentally excluded, provided that there is no demonstrably intentional or grossly negligent fault on our part. All offers are subject to change and non-binding. We expressly reserve the right to change, supplement, delete, or temporarily or permanently cease publication of parts of the pages or the entire offering without separate announcement.
  2. References and Links
    In the case of direct or indirect references to external websites ("hyperlinks") that are outside our area of responsibility, a liability obligation would only come into effect if we had knowledge of the contents and it was technically possible and reasonable for us to prevent the use in the event of illegal content. We hereby expressly declare that at the time the link was set, no illegal content was recognizable on the linked pages. We have no influence on the current and future design, content, or authorship of the linked/referenced pages. Therefore, we hereby expressly distance ourselves from all content of all linked/referenced pages that have been changed after the link was set. This statement applies to all links and references set within our own internet offering as well as to third-party entries in guest books, discussion forums, link directories, mailing lists, and all other forms of databases to which external write access is possible. For illegal, incorrect, or incomplete contents and in particular for damages resulting from the use or non-use of such information, the provider of the page to which reference is made is solely liable, not the one who merely refers to the respective publication via links.
  3. Copyright and Trademark Rights
    We strive to respect the copyrights of the images, graphics, audio documents, video sequences, and texts used in all publications, to use images, graphics, audio documents, video sequences, and texts created by us, or to use license-free graphics, audio documents, video sequences, and texts. 
    All trademarks and brand names mentioned within the internet offering and possibly protected by third parties are subject without restriction to the provisions of the applicable trademark law and the ownership rights of the respective registered owners. The mere mentioning of a trademark does not imply that it is not protected by the rights of third parties! 
    The copyright for published objects created by us remains solely with the author of the pages. Reproduction or use of such graphics, audio documents, video sequences, and texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without our explicit consent.
  4. Legal Validity of this Disclaimer
    This disclaimer is to be regarded as part of the internet offering from which this page was referenced. If sections or individual terms of this statement are not legal or correct, the content or validity of the other parts remain uninfluenced by this fact.
  5. Data Privacy
    If there is an option for entering personal or business data (email addresses, names, addresses) within the internet offering, the disclosure of this data by the user is on an expressly voluntary basis. The use and payment of all offered services is permitted - if technically possible and reasonable - without specifying such data or by specifying anonymized data or a pseudonym. The use of contact data published in the imprint or comparable information such as postal addresses, telephone and fax numbers, and email addresses by third parties for sending unsolicited information is not permitted. Legal actions against senders of so-called spam mails in violation of this prohibition are expressly reserved.
  6. Contact Form

  1. Newsletter Data
    If you wish to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we need an email address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the specified email address and that you agree to receive the newsletter. No further data will be collected. We use this data exclusively for sending the requested information and do not pass it on to third parties.

  1. Facebook Plugins (Like-Button)
    Our pages include plugins from the social network Facebook, provider Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA. The Facebook plugins can be recognized by the Facebook logo or the "Like" button ("Like") on our page. An overview of Facebook plugins can be found here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
    When you visit our pages, the plugin establishes a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook server. Facebook receives the information that you have visited our site with your IP address. If you click the Facebook "Like" button while logged into your Facebook account, you can link the content of our pages to your Facebook profile. This allows Facebook to associate the visit to our pages with your user account. We would like to point out that we, as the provider of the pages, have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or its use by Facebook. Further information can be found in Facebook's privacy policy at https://de-de.facebook.com/policy.php.

  1. YouTube
    Our website uses plugins from the Google-operated YouTube page. The operator of the pages is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit one of our pages equipped with a YouTube plugin, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. This tells the YouTube server which of our pages you have visited.
    If you are logged into your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to directly associate your

    browsing behavior with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
    For more information about how user data is handled, please refer to YouTube's privacy policy: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy

  1. Cookies
    The internet pages partially use so-called cookies. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain viruses. They serve to make our offer more user-friendly, effective, and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser. Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognize your browser on your next visit. You can set your browser to inform you about the setting of cookies and allow cookies only in individual cases, to exclude the acceptance of cookies for specific cases or in general, and to activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. Deactivating cookies may limit the functionality of this website.
  2. Embedding Google Maps

    On this website, we use the offering of Google Maps. This allows us to display interactive maps on the website and enables you to comfortably use the map function. By visiting the website, Google receives, among other things, the information that you have called up the corresponding subpage of our website. Furthermore, the data mentioned under section 2 of this declaration is transmitted to Google, regardless of whether you are logged into a Google account. If you are logged into a Google account, your data will be directly associated with this account. Google stores your data as usage profiles and uses them for advertising, market research, and/or needs-based design of its own website. You have a right to object to the creation of these user profiles. To exercise this right of objection, you must contact Google directly.
    For more information about the purpose and scope of data collection and its processing by the plug-in provider, please refer to the provider's privacy policy. There you will also find further information on your rights in this regard and options for protecting your privacy: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy. Google also processes your personal data in the USA and has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

  3. SSL Encryption
    For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as inquiries that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses SSL encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line. If SSL encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
  4. Information, Deletion, Blocking
    You have the right to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipients and the purpose of data processing, as well as a right to correction, blocking, or deletion of this data. For this purpose and for further questions on the subject of personal data, you can contact us at any time using the address provided in the imprint.
  5. No Warning Without Prior Contact
    Should any content or the design-technical layout of individual pages or parts of this online portal violate the rights of third parties or legal provisions or otherwise create competition law problems in any form, we ask for appropriate, sufficiently explanatory, and prompt communication without a cost note, referring to § 8 Para. 4 UWG. We guarantee that the rightly criticized passages or parts of these websites will be removed or adapted to the legal requirements in a reasonable period of time, without the involvement of legal counsel from your side. The involvement of a lawyer for the purpose of issuing a cost-bearing warning to the service provider does not correspond to the actual or presumed will of the service provider and would thus constitute a violation of § 13 Para. 5 UWG, due to the pursuit of non-objective objectives as the dominant motive for initiating proceedings, especially a profit motive as the actual driving force, as well as a violation of the obligation to mitigate damage.
