1. Limitation of liability for internal content
The content of our website has been compiled with meticulous care and to the best of our knowledge. However, we cannot assume any liability for the up-to-dateness, completeness or accuracy of any of the pages.
Pursuant to section 7, para. 1 of the TMG (Telemediengesetz – Tele Media Act by German law), we as service providers are liable for our own content on these pages in accordance with general laws. However, pursuant to sections 8 to 10 of the TMG, we as service providers are not under obligation to monitor external information provided or stored on our website. Once we have become aware of a specific infringement of the law, we will immediately remove the content in question. Any liability concerning this matter can only be assumed from the point in time at which the infringement becomes known to us.
2. 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. At the point in time when the links were placed, no infringements of the law were recognisable to us. As soon as an infringement of the law becomes known to us, we will immediately remove the link in question.
3. Copyright
The content and works published on this website are governed by the copyright laws of Switzerland. Any duplication, processing, distribution or any form of utilisation beyond the scope of copyright law shall require the prior written consent of the author or authors in question.
4. Data protection
A visit to our website can result in the storage on our server of information about the access (date, time, page accessed). This does not represent any analysis of personal data (e.g., name, address or e-mail address). If personal data are collected, this only occurs – to the extent possible – with the prior consent of the user of the website. Any forwarding of the data to third parties without the express consent of the user shall not take place.
We would like to expressly point out that the transmission of data via the Internet (e.g., by e-mail) can offer security vulnerabilities. It is therefore impossible to safeguard the data completely against access by third parties. We cannot assume any liability for damages arising as a result of such security vulnerabilities.
The use by third parties of all published contact details for the purpose of advertising is expressly excluded. We reserve the right to take legal steps in the case of the unsolicited sending of advertising information; e.g., by means of spam mail.
5. Google Advertising
Third party advertisers on this site, such as Google's Adsense program, may set cookies and web beacons for marketing purposes. If you would like to limit the ability of sites you visit to set cookies, you may do so by changing your security options in your browser. Alternatively, cookie options may also be reset insecurity programs such as Norton. However, please note that restricting cookie settings may hinder your ability to interact with some sites that utilize cookies.
Advertising cookies set by Google can be used by Google to track your visits on other web sites, gauge your interest and allow Google to deliver you ads based on your personal interests. You can read more about and opt out, if you choose to do so, from Google's interest based advertising here.
Google may associate your browser with relevant interest categories based on sites you have previously visited and may use these categories to show personalised ads. For example, if you frequently visit finance websites, Google may show you more finance related ads than someone who spends more time on travel web sites.
