This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, which are text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if the user has enabled IP anonymous mode on this website, the IP address will be shortened by Google beforehand, within the member states of the European Union and other states adhering to the treaty on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and then shortened there. The operator of this website will authorize Google to use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for the website operator and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google will not associate the IP address provided by your browser with any other data held by Google. You can prevent the saving of cookies on your computer by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser; however, please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent the transfer to Google of the data created by the cookie relating to your use of this website (including your IP address), as well as stop processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plugin currently provided under the following link:

The content of this website was produced with the greatest possible care. However, the provider assumes no guarantee for the accuracy, completeness, topicality or other quality of the provided content. The use of the content on the website is at the user’s own risk. Contributions for which an author is named reflect the opinion of the respective author and not always the opinion of the provider. The mere use of the website does not establish a contractual relationship between the user and the provider.

The website contains links to websites of third parties (“external links”). These websites are subject to the liability of the respective operator. The provider examined the content of the third party when first establishing the external links with regards to whether there were any violations of law. There were no apparent violations of law at that time. The provider has absolutely no influence on the current and future design and content of the linked pages. The setting of external links does not mean that the provider has assumed responsibility for the content behind the link. Continuous monitoring of the external links is not reasonably possible for the provider without having specific information about violations of law. Upon learning about violations of law, however, such external links will be deleted without undue delay.

The contents published on this website are subject to German copyright and intellectual property rights. Each non-permissible use according to German copyright and intellectual rights must be previously agreed to in writing by the provider or the respective owner of the rights. This specifically applies to the duplication, handling, translation, storage, processing and reproduction of content in databases or other electronic media and systems. Content and rights belonging to third parties are marked as such here. Non-permissible duplication or passing on of individual content or full pages is not permissible and liable to prosecution. Only the preparation of copies and downloads for personal, private and non-commercial use is permissible. The depiction of this website in third-party frames is only permissible with written permission.

By visiting the website of the provider, information about the access (date, time, page accessed) can be saved. This data is anonymized and not considered to be personal data. It is analyzed only for statistical purposes. It is not passed on to third parties either for commercial or non-commercial purposes. The provider expressly notes that there are security issues with submitting data over the internet (e.g. when communicating via e-mail) and that such data cannot be protected completely from access by third parties. It is expressly not the intention for the legal notice contact details to be used for commercial use, unless the provider has given prior written consent or a business relationship is already in place. The provider and all persons named on this website hereby object to any commercial use and transfer of their data.

Should special conditions for individual use of this website deviate from the aforementioned points, this is expressly stated at the corresponding section. In this case, specific terms of use apply.
