Mr. Robert Motzek, see above for address

4.2 – Accountability for content:

The contents of our website were created with great care. However, we cannot guarantee the correctness, completeness and currentness of the contents. As a service provider, we are responsible for our own content on our website according to the general German laws in accordance with § 6 Abs.1 MDStV and § 8 Abs.1 TDG. Service providers, however, are not obligated to monitor third party information transmitted or stored by them, or to investigate circumstances which indicate an illegal activity. Obligations to remove or block the use of information according to general laws remain unaffected. However, accountability in this regard is only possible from the time of knowledge of a concrete infringement. Upon becoming aware of any such violations, we will immediately remove such content.

4.3 – Accountability for links:

This website contains links to external websites of third parties on whose contents we have no influence. Therefore, no guarantee can be given for these third party contents. The contents of third party sites, which are linked to, do not reflect the opinion of the website owner, but are merely for the information and the representation of connections. The respective provider or operator of the respective pages is always responsible for the contents of the linked pages. The linked pages were checked for possible legal violations at the time of linking. At the time of the linking illegal contents were not recognizable. However, a permanent control of the content of the linked pages is not reasonable without concrete indications of an infringement. If we become aware of any legal infringements, we will immediately remove such links.

4.4 – Copyright:

The operators of this website always make an effort to respect the copyrights of others or to access self-made and license-free works.
