(1) Limitation of liability
The contents of this website are compiled with the utmost care. However, the provider shall make no guarantees that the contents provided are accurate, complete and up to date. The user uses the available content at his or her own risk. Contributions made by named individuals reflect the opinion of the respective author and not necessarily the opinion of the provider.
AVAILABILITY OF THE WEBSITE
The provider shall endeavour to offer access to the service with minimum interruption. Even though great care is taken, the possibility of downtimes cannot be ruled out. The provider reserves the right to change or suspend its offering at any time.
This website includes links to third-party websites (external links). These websites are the liability of the respective operator. When the external links were first established, the provider checked the external content for possible legal violations. At the time the links were established, no legal violations were evident. The provider has no influence upon the current and future design and content of the websites to which links are provided. The creation of external links does not mean that the provider takes ownership of the content to which links are provided or reference is made. It is not reasonable to expect the provider to monitor these external links constantly without specific indications of legal violations. If any legal violations are noticed, such external links will be immediately deleted.
Each author is responsible for the content of his/her advertisements and for the content of the promoted website. Presentation of the advertisements does not indicate endorsement by the provider.
NO CONTRACTUAL RELATIONSHIP
Use of the provider’s website does not create any contractual relationship between the user and the provider. Therefore, no basis for contractual or quasi-contractual claims against the provider shall arise. In the event of use of the website giving rise to a contractual relationship, the following limitation of liability applies, purely on a precautionary basis: The provider shall be liable for any damage caused intentionally or by gross negligence, as well as for material breach of contract (violation of a cardinal obligation). Within the limits of compensation for such damage that is typical for the type of contract and that is foreseeable at the time of conclusion of the contract, the provider shall be liable for damage due to a slightly negligent breach of cardinal obligations by him/her or by one of his/her statutory representatives or vicarious agents. The provider shall not be liable for slight negligence where only an accessory obligation and not a cardinal obligation is concerned. The liability resulting from warranties or guarantees given by the provider as well as the mandatory liability under the Product Liability Act and the liability for damage arising from injury to human life, limb and health shall remain unaffected by the foregoing provisions.
