Links to other websites: This  site contains links to third-party websites. We have no control over the content of those sites and in no event will we be liable for such content. Responsibility for the content of linked sites rests with the respective provider or administrator. 

The linked sites were examined for potential statutory violations at the time the link was created, and no illegal content was identified at that time. However, ongoing examination of the content of linked sites is not reasonable unless there is firm evidence of a violation of the law. We will immediately remove such links once it becomes apparent that a violation of the law has occurred.
