However, liability in this respect is only possible from the time of becoming aware of a specific infringement. Upon becoming aware of such violations, we will remove the content immediately.

Liability for links:
Our site contains links to external websites of third parties over whose contents we have no control. Therefore we are not able to provide any guarantee for these third-party contents. In all cases, the respective provider or operator of the site is responsible for the contents of the linked pages. The linked pages were checked at the time of linking for possible legal infringements. At the time the links were placed on our site, there were no obvious illegal contents. However, we cannot be reasonably expected to carry out permanent checks of the contents of the linked pages without any specific evidence of a legal infringement. Upon becoming aware of any legal violations, we will remove such links immediately.
