In the case of direct or indirect references to third party web pages ("links") that are not within the area of responsibility of the website operator, the website operator cannot be held liable unless the website operator had knowledge of the content of the pages and it was technically possible and reasonable for the website operator to prevent their use if their content were unlawful.

The website operator has no influence whatsoever on the current or future design, content or copyright of the linked pages. It herewith expressly disclaims any association with the content of any linked pages that have been changed after the links were placed.
