Liability for content

In accordance with Article 7 Para. 1 of the TMG, as the service provider we are responsible that our own content on these web pages complies with general legislation. However, in accordance with Articles 8 to 10 of the TMG, as the service provider we are not obliged to monitor third-party information provided or stored here or to search for circumstances that might indicate unlawful activities.

This is without prejudice to obligations to remove or block the use of information in accordance with general legislation. Any obligation in this respect is only possible, however, from such time as we have been made aware of a concrete legal infringement. We will remove such content promptly once we become aware of any such legal infringement.

Liability for links

Our site contains links to external third-party websites for which we have no control over the content. We cannot, therefore, accept any responsibility for such third-party content. The respective provider or operator of such sites is always responsible for the content of the links. The linked pages were checked at the time of linking for possible legal infringements. No illegal content was discernible at the time of linking.

Without concrete evidence of a legal infringement, permanent control of the content of the linked pages is unreasonable. We will remove such links immediately upon notification of any legal infringement.

The reproduction, adaptation, distribution or any kind of use that is beyond what is permitted under copyright requires the written consent of the author or creator.

The copyright of third parties is respected where the content of these pages was not created by the operator. In particular, third-party content is identified as such. Nevertheless, should you become aware of any copyright infringement, we would kindly ask you to notify us. We will remove the content promptly upon notification of any such infringement.

6. Social Media Plugins

Based on point (f) of Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 GDPR, we use social plugins of the social networks Facebook, Twitter and Instagram on our website in order to increase the visibility of our company. The underlying advertising purpose is a legitimate interest in the meaning of the GDPR. The responsibility for operation in compliance with data protection law lies with the respective provider. Our integration of these plugins takes place by means of the so-called two-click method in order to protect visitors to our website in the best way possible.

a) Facebook
Our website makes use of social media plugins of Facebook in order to make its use more personal. For this, we use the "LIKE" or "SHARE" button. This is an offer of Facebook.

When you access a web page of our website that contains such a plugin, your browser will establish a direct connection to Facebook. The content of the plugin will be transmitted from Facebook directly to your browser, which will integrate it in the web page.

By means of the integration of the plugins, Facebook receives the information that your browser has accessed the respective page of our website, even if you do not have any Facebook account or are not logged in to Facebook. This information (including your IP address) is sent from your browser directly to a server of Facebook in the USA, where it is stored.

If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can directly allocate the visit to our website to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, e.g. by clicking the "LIKE" or "SHARE" button, the respective information will also be sent directly to a server of Facebook, where it will be stored. The information will also be published on Facebook and be displayed to your Facebook friends.

Facebook may use this information for the purpose of advertising, market research and needs-oriented design of the Facebook pages. For this purpose, Facebook creates usage, interest and relationship profiles, e.g. to analyse your use of our website with a view to the ads displayed to you in Facebook, to inform other Facebook users about your activities on our website and to perform other services associated with the use of Facebook.

If you do not want Facebook to associate the data collected via our website with your Facebook account, log out from Facebook before you visit our website.
