Liability for content

As a website operator, according to § 7 Abs.1 TMG, I am responsible for content created by myself on these web pages. According to §§ 8 to 10 TMG, however, I am not obliged to monitor transmitted or stored third-party information or to investigate circumstances that indicate an illegal activity. Obligations to remove or block the use of information under general law remain unaffected. A liability in this regard, however, is only possible from the date of knowledge of a specific infringement. Upon notification of appropriate violations I will remove the respective content immediately.

My website contains hyperlinks to external websites of third parties over whose contents I have no influence. Therefore I can not assume any liability for these external contents. The respective provider or operator of the pages is always responsible for the contents of the linked pages. The linked pages were checked for possible legal violations at the time of linking. Illegal content was not recognizable at the time of linking. However, a permanent content control of the linked pages is not reasonable without concrete evidence of an infringement. Upon notification of violations, I will remove such links immediately.

The content created by the site operator and all works on these pages are subject to German copyright law. The reproduction, processing, distribution and any kind of exploitation outside the limits of copyright require the written consent of the respective author or creator.

The website operator grants website users access to most of the content under the Creative Commons By SA 4.0 license. For the author’s name, please use my full name, so that the license will read: “CC-By-SA 4.0 Maren Hachmann”. If no license is given for a content, downloading and copying are only permitted for private, non-commercial use.

As far as the content on this web site has not been created by the operator, the copyrights of third parties will be respected. In particular, third-party content is identified as such in accordance with the respective license. If you should still notice a copyright infringement, I kindly ask you to notify me about it. Upon notification of violations, I will remove such content immediately.
