The content is meant as general information and under no circumstances constitutes legal advice by the law firm. The law firm is not responsible for harm or losses caused by using the information on these pages. No liability can be accepted for its correctness.
As content provider, the law firm is responsible under the general law of Germany for its own contents which it provides for use.
This own content does not include references (links) to – third-party – contents offered by other providers. The law firm is only then responsible for these third-party contents if it has positive knowledge of it (i.e. also of unlawful/criminal content) and it is technically possible and reasonable to prevent its use, Section 5 Subs. 2 of the German Teleservices Act (Teledienstegesetz – TDG).
“Links” are “living” (dynamic) references. When it first created the link, the law firm checked the third-party content to determine whether it might trigger a possible civil- or criminal-law responsibility.
However, the German Teleservices Act does not require the law firm to regularly review the linked contents for changes that may subsequently give rise to such a responsibility. Only where the law firm establishes or its attention is drawn to the fact that a particular offering for which it has provided a link gives rise to a civil- or criminal-law responsibility, will it remove that link from this offering, in so far as this is technically possible and reasonable. The technical possibility and reasonableness is not influenced by the fact that the unlawful or criminal content can still be accessed from other servers even after access via the strafrechtsfragen.de homepage has been prevented.
