1. Limitation of liability
The content of this website is produced with the greatest possible care. However, the service provider gives no guarantee that the content provided is correct, complete or up to date. The user uses the content of the website at his own risk. Articles provided by named parties reflect the opinion of the relevant author and not always the opinion of the service provider. No contractual relationship whatsoever is brought about between the user and the service provider simply by the use of the service provider’s website.
2. External links
This website contains links to third party websites (“external links”). Liability for these websites lies with the relevant operator. Upon first establishing the external links the service provider has checked the third party content as regards whether there are any breaches of the law. At that time, no breaches of the law were evident. The service provider has no influence whatsoever over the current and future design or the content of linked sites. The provision of external links does not mean that the service provider has adopted the content behind the reference or link. It is not reasonable for the service provider to conduct constant checks on these external links without specific notification of breaches of the law. In the event of discovery of breaches of the law, however, such external links will be deleted without delay.
