Our website makes use of so-called cookies in order to recognize repeat use of our website by the same user/internet connection subscriber.

Posting Comments

Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as “Google“. Google Analytics employs so-called “cookies“, text files that are stored to your computer in order to facilitate an analysis of your use of the site. The information generated by these cookies, such as time, place and frequency of your visits to our site, including your IP address, is transmitted to Google’s location in the US and stored there. In using Google Analytics our website employs the extension, “_gat._anonymizeIp”. In doing so, Google abbreviates and thereby anonymizes your IP address before transferring it from member states of the European Union or signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Google uses this information to analyze your use of our site, to compile reports for us on internet activity and to provide other services relating to website and internet use. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law or where such third parties process this data on Google’s behalf. Google states that it will in never associate your IP address with other data held by Google. You can prevent cookies from being installed by adjusting the settings on your browser software accordingly. You should be aware, however, that by doing so you may not be able to make full use of all the functions of our website. Furthermore, Google offers a deactivation add-on for most current browsers that provides you with more control over what data Google can collect on websites you access. The add-on tells the JavaScript (ga.js) used by Google Analytics not to transmit any information about website visits to Google Analytics. However, the browser deactivation add-on offered by Google Analytics does not prevent information from being transmitted to us or to other web analysis services we may engage. You can find additional information on how to install the browser add-on at the following link:

Use of Google+ recommendation components

Each time our website receives an access request equipped with a “+1“ component, the component prompts your browser to download an image of this component from Google. Through this process, Google is informed precisely which page of our website is being visited. As specified by Google, your visit undergoes additional analysis in the event you are not logged into your Google account. If you access our site while logged into Google and press the “+1″ button, Google can collect information about your Google account, websites you recommend as well as your IP address, along with other browser-related information. This allows your “+1“ recommendation to be stored and publicized. Your Google “+1“ recommendation can then appear as a reference in other Google services, such as search results, your Google account or other places, such as on websites and ads in the internet, , together with your account name and, if applicable, a picture you provided to Google. Furthermore, Google can link your visit to our site with data stored by Google. Google also records this information for the purpose of further improving Google services. If you wish to minimize the collection of information by Google as previously described, you must log out of your Google account before visiting our website.

Liability for content

All due care was exercised when preparing the content presented on our website. Nevertheless, we are unable to give warranties of any kind regarding the accuracy, completeness or up-to-dateness of the content. In accordance with § 7 (1) TMG, we as service provider are responsible under general law for all content of our own on this website. In accordance with §§ 8 to 10 TMG, however, we are not obliged to monitor the transmitted or stored information of third parties, nor to investigate for circumstances which might indicate activities in breach of legal provisions. Obligations to remove or block the use of information in accordance with general law remain unaffected. Liability in this respect, however, is only possible from the time at which knowledge is gained of a specific legal breach. Relevant content will be removed without delay upon notification of a corresponding legal breach.

Liability for links

Our website also provides links to the external websites of third parties. We have no control whatsoever over the contents of such websites and are thus unable to accept any liability in respect of such external content. The publisher or operator of the website concerned is always solely responsible for the content of linked websites. Linked websites were checked for possible violations of legal standards at the time when the links were placed. No unlawful content was recognised as such at this time. It is not reasonable, however, to maintain permanent subsequent monitoring of the content of linked websites without specific pointers to a legal breach. Where a legal breach becomes known to us, we will remove the corresponding links without delay.
Important disclaimer regarding links:
By way of a judgement dated 12th May 1998, the Regional Court (Landgericht) of Hamburg ruled that, under relevant circumstances, a person or party placing a link assumes co-responsibility for the contents of the linked page. According to the court, this responsibility may only be excluded in case of explicit disassociation from the content concerned. Against this background, the following applies with regard to all links placed on this website: We herewith declare expressly that KATRIN LANGER® Manufacture GmbH & Co. KG has no influence whatsoever over the design and/or content of any linked webpages. Consequently, we herewith disassociate ourselves explicitly from all content on any page linked from our website.
