Further to §§ 8 to 10 TMG we are not however obliged as a service provider to monitor transmitted or saved third-party information nor to conduct research into circumstantial matters that may point to unlawful activity. This does not affect obligations to remove or to prohibit the use of information in accordance with general legislation. However, no liability in respect of this is possible prior to awareness of a specific legal infringement. Whenever we do become aware of legal infringements of this nature, we shall remove those contents with immediate effect.


Liability for links

Our offering contains links to the external websites of third parties and we have no influence over the contents of these websites. We are therefore unable to provide any assurance in regard to this third-party content. Responsibility for the contents of linked web pages is always in the hands of the relevant provider or operator of those web pages. At the time we established a link to these web pages, they were checked to ensure that they contained no legal infringements. At that specific point in time, no unlawful content was detected on these links. However, in the absence of specific reasons for suspecting the presence of a legal infringement, it would not be viable to monitor all content on a continuous basis. However, as soon as any legal infringements are brought to our attention, we remove links to affected web content immediately.
