Liability for the contents of this website

The contents of this website have been prepared with utmost diligence (and will be updated constantly). However, we cannot assume any liability or guarantee for the actuality, accuracy and completeness of the information provided. As a service provider we are responsible for our own contents of this website in accordance with § 7, paragraph 1 of the German Telemedia Act and according to the general laws but we are not responsible to monitor transferred and stored information of third parties or to research circumstances that suggest an illegal activity. The obligation to remove or block the use of information according to the general laws shall remain unaffected. A liability referring to this is, however, only possible from the moment of actual notice of a specific infringement. We will immediately remove such links or contents upon discovery of infringements.

Liability for website links

Our website contains links to external third-party websites on whose content we have no influence. Therefore, we cannot assume any liability for the correctness of these external contents. The respective operator of these websites is always responsible for the content of the linked pages. At the time of the link creation, the sites linked were inspected regarding possible infringement and no illegal contents were recognizable at that point of time. A constant checking on the contents of the linked pages is not reasonable as long as no precise evidence for an infringement of law has been indicated. As soon as we become aware of any legal infringement we shall remove such contents immediately.


The contents and works on these websites prepared by the operator of these pages shall be subject to the German Copyright Law. Any reproduction or use of our works, such as photographs, graphics and texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permissible without the explicit permission of DEval.

Insofar as contents of this website are not created by the operator, the copyright law of the corresponding third parties are being considered. In particular, the content of third parties is identified as such. Nevertheless, if you become aware of such copyright infringement, we kindly request you to inform us. As soon as we become aware of any infringements we immediately will remove the corresponding links or contents.

The owner/operator of this website explicitly reserves the right to take legal action in the event of unsolicited sending of advertising information, e. g. through spam mails.
