Dispute settlement

The European Commission provides a platform for online dispute resolution (OS):
You can find our email address in the legal notice above.

We are neither willing nor obliged to participate in dispute settlement proceedings before a consumer arbitration board.

Liability for content

As a service provider, we are responsible for our own content on these pages in accordance with general law in accordance with Section 7 (1) of the German Telemedia Act (TMG). According to §§ 8 to 10 TMG, as a service provider, we are not obliged to monitor transmitted or stored third-party information or to research circumstances that indicate illegal activity.

Obligations to remove or block the use of information according to general laws remain unaffected. However, liability in this regard is only possible from the point in time at which we become aware of a specific legal violation. As soon as we become aware of such legal violations, we will remove this content immediately.

Liability for links

Our offer contains links to external third-party websites, over whose content we have no influence. Therefore, we cannot accept any liability for this third-party content. The respective provider or operator of the pages is always responsible for the content of the linked pages. The linked pages were checked for possible legal violations at the time they were linked. No illegal content was found at the time the link was created.

A permanent control of the content of the linked pages is not reasonable without concrete evidence of a violation of the law. As soon as we become aware of legal violations, we will remove such links immediately.


The content and works on these pages created by the website operator are subject to German copyright law. The duplication, processing, distribution and any kind of exploitation outside the limits of copyright law require the written consent of the respective author or creator. Downloads and copies of this website are only permitted for private, non-commercial use.

Insofar as the content on this site was not created by the operator, the copyrights of third parties are observed. In particular contents of third parties are marked as such. If you should nevertheless become aware of a copyright infringement, we would ask you to notify us accordingly. As soon as we become aware of legal violations, we will remove such content immediately.

Disclaimer of liability
1. Content of the online offer

The author assumes no liability for the topicality, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims against the author relating to material or immaterial damage caused by the use or non-use of the information provided or by the use of incorrect and incomplete information are fundamentally excluded, unless the author can be shown to have acted willfully or grossly negligent.
All offers are non-binding. The author expressly reserves the right to change, add to, or delete parts of the pages or the entire offer or to cease publication temporarily or permanently without prior notice.

2. References and links

In the case of direct or indirect references to third-party websites (“links”) that are outside the author’s area of ​​responsibility, liability would only come into effect if the author was aware of the content and it would be technically possible and reasonable for him to prevent use in the event of illegal content.
The author therefore expressly declares that the linked pages were free of illegal content at the time the links were created. The author has no influence whatsoever on the current and future design and on the content of the linked pages. Therefore, he hereby expressly distances himself from all contents of all linked / connected pages that were changed after the link was set. This statement applies to all links and references set within the author’s own website as well as to third-party entries in guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists set up by the author. For illegal, incorrect or incomplete content and in particular for damage resulting from the use or non-use of information presented in this way, the provider of the page to which reference was made is solely liable, not the person who merely refers to the respective publication via links.

3. Copyright and trademark law

The author endeavors to observe the copyrights of the graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts used in all publications, to use graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts created by himself or to use license-free graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts.
All brands and trademarks named on the website and possibly protected by third parties are subject without restriction to the provisions of the applicable trademark law and the ownership rights of the respective registered owner. The conclusion that trademarks are not protected by the rights of third parties should not be drawn simply because they are mentioned!
The copyright for published objects created by the author remains solely with the author of the pages. Any duplication or use of such graphics, audio files, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without the express consent of the author.

4. Third Party Rights

If the content or offerings of the linked pages violate the rights of third parties or legal provisions, I ask for a message free of charge.

In this context, please take note: guarantees that rightly objected texts, photos, passages or other items will be removed immediately without the need for legal assistance on your part. I will fully reject any costs you incur or incur without contacting us beforehand.

5. Legal validity of this disclaimer

This disclaimer is to be regarded as part of the internet publication which you were referred from. If parts or individual formulations of this text do not, no longer or not completely correspond to the current legal situation, the remaining parts of the document remain unaffected in their content and validity.

Liability notice

In the German case law, the opinion is held that the operator of a homepage adopts the statements by adding links to other websites and is therefore obliged to pay damages under certain circumstances (Landgericht Hamburg, judgment of May 12, 1998, 312 O 85/98). This can only be prevented by expressly distancing yourself from the content of these pages.

Prof. Dr. Sadre-Chirazi-Stark hereby expressly emphasizes that he has no influence whatsoever on the design and content of those pages that are referred to on his homepage. Before attaching a link, he makes a check to ensure that no legal violations or legal violations are evident from the content of these pages. However, links are always dynamic references. The possibility of subsequent changes to the linked Internet pages by their operator includes the possibility that illegal or infringing content may subsequently be added to these pages without his knowledge.

In this case, he expressly refrains from this illegal or infringing content from the outset. Immediately after becoming aware that a specific internet offer to which he has provided a link could trigger civil or criminal liability, he will remove the reference to this page, as far as this is technically possible and reasonable.
