Liability for Contents
Pursuant to Section 7 para.1 TMG, we, as the service provider, are responsible for our own contents on this site under general laws. According to Sections 8 to 10 TMG, the service provider is not bound, however, to monitor any information transmitted or stored by third parties or to search for circumstances that could point to any unlawful activity. Although the foregoing does not affect the service provider’s obligation to remove or block the use of information under general laws, it shall only be liable from the point in time in which it becomes actually aware of a concrete violation of law. As soon as we become aware of any violation of law, we will promptly remove such contents.
Liability for links
KARE, as a provider of contents under Section 7 para. 1 TMG, is responsible under general laws for its “own contents” which are made available for use under www.kare-design.com. The cross-references to the contents provided by other providers (“links”) must be distinguished from our own contents. Through such links, KARE actually makes available “third-party contents” for use. When setting a link for the first time, such third-party contents are checked as to whether they may trigger any responsibility of KARE under civil or criminal laws. However, it cannot be excluded that such third party contents are subsequently altered by their providers. KARE does not check permanently the contents referred to in its site for alterations that could trigger such responsibility. If you think that external sites linked to KARE’s website may violate applicable laws or their contents or be otherwise inappropriate, please notify us.
