The European Commission is responsible for setting up the platform. The European Online Dispute Settlement Platform can be found here: Our email is:

1. Warning about content

The free and freely accessible contents of this website were created with the greatest possible care. However, the provider of this website does not guarantee the accuracy and timeliness of the free and freely accessible journalistic guides and news. Contributions marked by name reflect the opinion of the respective author and not always the opinion of the provider. No contractual relationship is established between the user and the provider solely by calling up the free and freely accessible content; in this respect, the provider’s will to legally bind is lacking.

2. External links

This website contains links to third-party websites (“external links”). These websites are subject to the liability of the respective operators. When the external links were first established, the provider checked the external content for possible violations of the law. At that time, no violations of the law were apparent. The provider has no influence whatsoever on the current and future design and content of the linked pages. The inclusion of external links does not mean that the provider adopts the content behind the reference or link as his own. A constant control of the external links is not reasonable for the provider without concrete evidence of legal violations. However, if we become aware of any legal infringements, such external links will be deleted immediately.

3. Copyright

The contents published on this website are subject to German copyright and ancillary copyright law. Any use not permitted by German copyright and ancillary copyright law requires the prior written consent of the provider or the respective copyright holder. This applies in particular to duplication, editing, translation, storage, processing or reproduction of content in databases or other electronic media and systems. Contents and rights of third parties are marked as such. The unauthorized duplication or transmission of individual contents or complete pages is not permitted and punishable by law. Only the production of copies and downloads for personal, private and non-commercial use is permitted.

The presentation of this website in external frames is only permitted with written permission.

4. Special Terms of Use

Insofar as special conditions for individual uses of this website deviate from the aforementioned paragraphs, this will be expressly pointed out at the appropriate point. In this case, the special terms of use shall apply in each individual case.
