Liability for content

As a service provider, we are responsible for our own content on these pages under the general laws according to § 7 paragraph 1 TMG.

The respective provider or operator of the sites is always responsible for the content of the linked sites. The linked pages were checked for possible legal violations at the time of linking. Illegal contents were not recognizable at the time of linking.
