1. Internet Content
ADDS assumes no responsibility for the accuracy, currency, completeness or quality of the information published. ADDS shall not be held liable for any material or other damages arising from the use or non-use of the displayed information respectively through the use of incorrect or incomplete information, unless it can be proven that the ADDS deliberately handled with undue care or with gross negligence. All content is freely made available and is without obligation.

2. References and Links
In event of direct or indirect references to external internet site (”links”) that do not lie within the responsibility of ADDS, a liability shall only be considered if ADDS had prior knowledge of the content and it were technically possible and reasonable for them to restrict the use of illegal content. ADDS hereby expressly confirms, that at the time the link was established, no illegal content was recognizable on the linked page. ADDS has absolutely no influence on the current and future layout, content or copyright of the linked pages. Therefore, ADDS explicitly distances itself herewith from all content on all linked pages that were changed after the link was established. This statement applies to all links set within its own internet offerings as well as for foreign content in guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists furnished by ADDS. Only the offeror of a site being linked and containing illegal, incorrect or incomplete content, and not any party who simply refers to the respective publication by means of a link, is liable for said content and in particular for damages resulting from the use or non-use of this kind of information.
