Liability for external links and contents of the website
Hofmann+ Voss GmbH, as the content provider for its own contents which it keeps available for use, is responsible under the general laws. Links to contents kept available by other providers are to be differentiated from the content of Hoffmann+ Voss GmbH. Through the link Hoffmann+ Voss GmbH in this respect is keeping “third-party content” available for use. Hoffmann+ Voss GmbH is only responsible for these third-party contents if there is positive knowledge of said contents (i.e. also knowledge of illegal content or content subject to prosecution)I and it is technically possible and reasonable to prevent use of said contents (§5 Par. 2 TDG [Teleservice Law]). However, in the case of “links” it is always a matter of “living” (dynamic) references. While Hoffmann+ Voss GmbH checked the third-party content during the first-time linkup to determine whether said content precipitates a potential responsibility subject to criminal law or civil law, the content provider is however not under any obligation under the Teleservice Law to regularly check the contents to which said content provider makes reference in his offer which could constitute a responsibility. Only after said content provider has provided a link precipitates a responsibility subject to criminal law or civil law will the content provider rescind this offer to the extent to which this is technically possible and reasonable for him. The technical possibility and reasonableness will not be influenced by the fact that access is still possible even after prevention of access from the Hoffmann+ Voss GmbH home page from other servers to the illegal or prosecutable offer. We are using this disclaimer with the friendly permission of the Data Protection Supervisor, Berlin, from whose website we have taken it and which is likewise available to anyone who would like to use it.
