Notice on external links and own content
According to article 8 of the German Teleservices Act (Teledienstegesetz), as the content provider, the author is responsible for the content they make available for use, in accordance with general laws. A distinction should be made between our own content and the contents of hyperlinks (“links”) which are made available by other providers.
Links are always considered to be hyperlinks to “live”, dynamic content. The responsible party has checked the external content when the link was initially placed, to verify whether this would possibly constitute grounds for liability on the part of the responsible party, according to civil or criminal law. However, the responsible party is not checking content which they themselves have provided a link to on an on-going basis. The responsible party does not constantly check for changes which could provide new grounds for liability. If the responsible party finds out, or is told by others that content which it has provided a link to is grounds for liability under civil or criminal law, the responsible party will remove the link.
The author accepts no liability for the information provided being up-to-date, correct or complete, nor for the quality of said information. Liability claims against the author in relation to damage to material or intellectual property caused by the use or lack of use of the information provided or by the use of flawed or incomplete information is generally excluded, unless the author can be proven to have acted with intent or gross negligence.
