Beware of the link
In a ground-breaking judgment, the Hamburg Regional Court has decided that a person who creates a link may in some circumstances be jointly responsible for the content of the linked page.
To a non-lawyer, this appears just about as sensible as making someone guilty of a crime 'somewhere or other' just because they had explained how to get there. Fortunately, the court also provided a loophole at the same time. It is enough that the person creating the link dissociates themselves from the content of the linked pages. We are doing that expressly! So: don't just click on something that you find on our website. We expressly dissociate ourselves from all links and other content on those websites, and from 'somewhere or other' in any case.
We also dissociate ourselves from the entire Internet. It has no future anyway. And what's more, we dissociate ourselves from lawyers who warn us about defective link disclaimers.
Use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. ('Google'). Google Analytics uses so-called 'cookies', text files which are stored on your computer and which allow your use of the website to be analysed. The information generated by the cookie regarding your use of this website (including your IP address) is transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, compile reports about activity on their websites for website operators and provide further services associated with the use of the website and the internet. Google may also transfer this information to third parties if required by law or if such third parties process this data on Google's behalf. Under no circumstances will Google link your IP address to other Google data. You can change your browser settings in order to prevent the cookies from being installed; however, we should point out that in that case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website in full. By using this website, you give your agreement to Google processing data compiled in relation to you in the manner and for the purpose described above.
We would like to point out to you that, in order to provide better data protection, our website uses Google Analytics with the '_anonymizeIp()' extension. In this case, your IP address is first shortened by Google inside member states of the European Union or in other member states of the European Economic Area Treaty. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. This prevents you being directly personally identified when use of the website is analysed.
You may install an add-on in your browser in order to refuse to permit the installation of the Google Analytics cookies. This allows you to exercise your right to object to the collection, processing and use of your data by Google Analytics in the future. In order to do this, you can install the Google Analytics de-activation browser add-on. This allows you to prevent Google Analytics from storing information about your visits to our website. You can find further information on downloading and installing this de-activation add-on here.
