Under §§ 8-10 of the same Act, however, we are not obliged to monitor information from third parties that we transmit or store, nor to check it for possible illegal activity. This does not affect our obligations under general law to remove or block information. Any liability in that respect, however, can only be incurred from the moment we become aware of any specific infringement. Once we become aware of such legal violations, we shall remove the respective contents immediately.
Liabililty for links
Our website contains links to third-party external websites over whose content we have no influence. We cannot therefore be held liable for their content. The respective owner or operator is always responsible for the content of linked sites. The linked sites were checked for possible legal violations at the time we set up the links. No unlawful content was detected at that time. Permanent monitoring of the linked sites is not feasible, however, unless there are specific indications of legal violation. If we become aware of legal violations, we will remove such links immediately.
