The Euro­pean Com­mis­sion pro­vides a plat­form for Online Dis­pute Res­o­lu­tion (OS), which you can find at . We are pre­pared to par­tic­i­pate in an out-of-court con­cil­i­a­tion pro­ce­dure.


Liability for contents

As a ser­vice provider we are respon­si­ble accord­ing to § 7 Abs.1 TMG for our own con­tents on these pages accord­ing to the gen­er­al laws. Accord­ing to §§ 8 to 10 TMG, we are not oblig­ed to mon­i­tor trans­mit­ted or stored third-par­ty infor­ma­tion or to inves­ti­gate cir­cum­stances that indi­cate ille­gal activ­i­ty. Oblig­a­tions to remove or block the use of infor­ma­tion in accor­dance with gen­er­al laws remain unaf­fect­ed by this. How­ev­er, lia­bil­i­ty in this respect is only pos­si­ble from the time of knowl­edge of a con­crete vio­la­tion of the law. As soon as we become aware of such infringe­ments, we will remove the con­tent imme­di­ate­ly.


Liability for links

Our offer con­tains links to exter­nal web­sites of third par­ties, on whose con­tents we have no influ­ence. There­fore, we can­not assume any lia­bil­i­ty for these exter­nal con­tents. The respec­tive provider or oper­a­tor of the pages is always respon­si­ble for the con­tents of the linked pages. The linked pages were checked for pos­si­ble legal infringe­ments at the time of link­ing. Ille­gal con­tents were not recog­nis­able at the time of link­ing. A per­ma­nent con­trol of the con­tents of the linked pages is not rea­son­able with­out con­crete evi­dence of an infringe­ment. As soon as we become aware of any legal infringe­ments, we will remove such links imme­di­ate­ly.



The con­tents and works on these pages cre­at­ed by the site oper­a­tors are sub­ject to Ger­man copy­right law. Dupli­ca­tion, pro­cess­ing, dis­tri­b­u­tion and any form of com­mer­cial­iza­tion of such mate­r­i­al beyond the scope of the copy­right law shall require the pri­or writ­ten con­sent of its respec­tive author or cre­ator. Down­loads and copies of these pages are only per­mit­ted for pri­vate, non-com­mer­cial use. Inso­far as the con­tent on this site was not cre­at­ed by the oper­a­tor, the copy­rights of third par­ties are respect­ed. In par­tic­u­lar, con­tents of third par­ties are marked as such. Should you nev­er­the­less become aware of a copy­right infringe­ment, please inform us accord­ing­ly. As soon as we become aware of any infringe­ments, we will remove such con­tent imme­di­ate­ly.


Copyrights and photos

Pho­tographs are pho­to­graph­ic works with­in the mean­ing of § 2 Para. 1 No. 5 Copy­right Act (UrhG) and are there­fore pro­tect­ed works under the Copy­right Act. Inso­far as the pho­to­graph does not reach the so-called “lev­el of cre­ation”, i.e. there is no per­son­al spir­i­tu­al cre­ation, pho­tographs are pro­tect­ed under § 72 UrhG as “sim­ple pho­tographs”.

The author of the respec­tive pho­to­graph is the pho­tog­ra­ph­er (§ 7 UrhG), who can assert claims in the event of infringe­ment of his copy­rights. Con­ceiv­able claims would be, for exam­ple:

claim for removal (Sec­tion 97 (1) sen­tence 1 UrhG)

In case of dan­ger of recur­rence: Right to injunc­tive relief (Sec­tion 97 (1) sen­tence 1 UrhG)

Dam­ages (Sec­tion 97 (2) sen­tence 1 UrhG) and infor­ma­tion
