Liability for contents
As a service provider, we are responsible, pursuant to § 7 (1) TMG [German Telemedia Act] for our own content on this website in accordance with the general laws. However, pursuant to §§ 8 to 10 TMG [German Telemedia Act], as a service provider, we are not obligated to monitor or investigate sent or stored third-party information, which indicate an illegal activity. Obligations to remove or block the use of information in accordance with the general law remain unaffected by this. However, liability in this regard shall only be possible from the time of gaining awareness of a concrete legal violation. Once we become aware of such legal violations we shall remove the respective contents immediately.

Liability for links
Our offer contains links to external third-party websites, the contents of which we cannot influence. Therefore, we also cannot assume any liability for this third-party content. The relevant vendor or operator of the website is always responsible for the contents of linked websites. The linked websites were reviewed for legal violations at the time of setting the link. Illegal contents were not identifiable at the time of linking. However, without concrete indications, constant checking of the linked websites is cannot be reasonably expected. Once we become aware of such legal violations we shall remove such links immediately.

The contents produced by the website operators and works on these websites are subject to German copyright law. The duplication, editing, dissemination and any type of exploitation outside of the boundaries of the copyright require the written consent of the relevant author/creator. Downloads and copies of this website are only permitted for private, non-commercial use. To the extent that the contents of this website have not been produced by the operator, the third-party copyrights shall be observed. In particular, third-party contents shall be identified as such. In the event that you should nevertheless become aware of a copyright violation, we request appropriate notification. Once we become aware of such legal violations we shall remove such links immediately.

Arbitration information
At all times, we aim to settle any differences in opinion with our developers amicably. For this, in appropriate cases and subject to the possibly necessary consent of our indemnity insurer, we also participate in an arbitration procedure before the expert and equally represented arbitration board of the North Rhine-Westphalia Chamber of Architects, but not before a consumer arbitration board within the meaning of the VSBG [Act on Consumer Dispute Settlements].
