Pursuant to Section 7 (1) of the German Telemedia Act [Telemediengesetz/TMG] the service provider as provider of this website is responsible for his own contents and information provided on these pages under general law.

4. Data protection

If personal data is collected, it will only be collected with the prior consent of the website user, if possible. No data will be made available to third parties without the express consent of the user. The provider points out that data transfer on the internet (e.g. by email) may be subject to security breaches and that it is not possible to completely protect data against access by third parties.
