In the case of references or links to external websites which lie outside our area of responsibility, we may only be liable if our editorial staff is aware of the content and it would be technically possible and reasonable for them to prevent the use in case of illegal content.

We would like to point out that the information provided does not constitute comprehensive legal advice (you should always consult an expert for such advice).

We cannot guarantee that the accessible content, in particular legal texts, always corresponds to the current or legally binding version.

References and links

In case of direct or indirect references to third-party websites (links) which are outside the scope of responsibility of the respective editorial staff or the cooperation partners, a liability obligation would only arise in the event that the respective editorial staff / the specialist department is aware of the content and it would be technically possible and reasonable to prevent its use in the case of illegal content.

The respective specialist department therefore expressly states that at the time the links were placed in the text, the sites they refer to were free of illegal content.

Liability for illegal, erroneous or incomplete content and in particular for the damages which originate from the use or disuse of such information, shall lie solely with the provider of the page to which any of these links refer and not with the party that merely refers to the content via links.
