Any liability concerning this matter can only be assumed from the point in time at which the infringement becomes known to us.
    Limitation of liability for external links
    Our website contains links to the websites of third parties (“external links”). As the content of these websites is not under our control, we cannot assume any liability for such external content. In all cases, the provider of information of the linked websites is liable for the content and accuracy of the information provided.
