Linking to external websites
In its decision of 5 December 1998, the Hamburg District Court ruled that by attaching a link to an external website, one shares responsibility for the content of that site. The District Court further ruled that this can only be prevented by expressly distancing oneself from this content. We have added links to other websites on our home page. The following applies to all such links: We would like to explicitly state that we are not responsible for the design or content of external links. For this reason, we hereby expressly distance ourselves from all content on all websites that are linked from our home page and for all content of the specific page to which links or banners lead.
