References and Links

For direct or indirect references to external Internet pages ("links") that lie outside the responsibility of the website team, a liability would only come into effect in case the website team were made aware of illegal content and had the technical means to exclude it.

The website team hereby declares that at the time links were set, there was no illegal content on the linked pages. However, a continuous control of the linked pages is not possible without concrete evidence of a violation. Upon notification of an infringement in the content of the linked pages, such links will be removed promptly. The website team has no influence over the current and future design, content, or authorship of the linked / referenced pages. Therefore it dissociates itself explicitly from all content on all linked / connected pages changed after the link was set. Liability for illegal, incorrect, or incomplete content and especially for damages resulting from the use or misuse of such information lies solely with the provider of the site referred to, not those who set links to these pages.
