If not mentioned otherwise, all the sites of this publisher are subject to copyright, especially concerning text, images, graphic design elements, style, sound, video or animation files, including their arrangement on the sites.

The copy or use of websites (or of parts thereof) in other electronic or print publications and their publication itself, also in the internet, is only granted by permit. The reprint and use of press releases, publications, manuscripts, lectures etc. is only permitted if the source is cited.

Furthermore, images, graphic design elements, text or any other data may be subject to the copyright of third parties in full or in part.

All trademarks mentioned on these sites that may be protected by third parties are fully subject to the laws of the respective trademark laws and property rights of the proprietor/s. Only due to the mere mention on these sites one is not to conclude that such trademarks are not protected by the rights of third parties.


The website publisher has compiled and controlled the content of these sites to its best knowledge. However, it cannot take on responsibility for the validity, correctness, completeness, all-time accessibility, or quality of the information provided.

The publisher is not liable for any defects caused by retrieving or downloading data or due to the installation and/or use of software in the form of computer viruses etc.

Websites marked by individual names reproduce the opinion of their respective authors. The publisher expressly reserves the right to change, add to, delete, or intercede temporally or infinitely the publication of single websites, web services of the publisher or the entire site without notice.

Links (Disclaimer)

The publisher is responsible solely for the “contents of its own” that are offered for use subject to the laws applicable. These contents have to be differentiated from the links to websites of different publishers. By the use of “external links” the publisher makes it possible to access contents not of its own.

By using a link the publisher merely mediates access to the use of these other contents. It is not responsible for these contents, as it does not trigger the transfer of information, does not select the addressee of the mediated information and has neither selected nor changed any information transferred. Automatic short-time saving of such information does not take place due to the selected method of linking so that no responsibility is effected for the publisher.

At first linking with other websites the authors and/or publisher have assessed the content as to the possibility that it might cause any legal obligations. As soon as the publisher has ascertained or is informed by others that a certain linked site does do so, the link to this site will be immediately deleted as far as technical matters allow and as is reasonable.

For illegal, erroneous or incomplete information and especially defects caused by the use or non-use of information of third parties the sole legal liability is with the respective publisher of the linked site.
