Notice to users
The purpose of this website is to inform the public. While we regularly review its content and do our best to ensure it is correct, complete, up-to-date, intelligible etc., we accept no liability in this respect. We would draw your attention in particular to the following:
Content from other providers
Although any links included on our website are carefully chosen, we have no influence on the content or design of other websites to which you may be referred either directly or indirectly. For this reason we accept no liability or responsibility for their correctness or completeness and do not identify ourselves with their content. This applies both to all links listed on our website and to the content of websites accessed through such links. Links to the websites of other providers are included only as a service to visitors to our website. Providers are responsible by law for the content of their own websites. Please note that there is clear distinction to be made between the content of a provider's own website and any links to the websites of other providers. Responsibility for the content of any website lies exclusively with the relevant provider. Before including in our website any link to the websites of other providers, we check the content of their websites scrupulously and to the best of our ability. The content of other websites may be modified any time, however, without the knowledge of the Website Editorial Office.
We would be grateful if you could let us know of any illegal content or incorrect information posted on other websites accessed through links on our website. Please let us also know of anything that is erroneous, out-of-date, incomplete, unintelligible etc. on our own website. You can use our contact form to advise us of such problems.
All information posted on our website and all elements of its design are protected by copyright. No information in whole or part may be reprinted, reproduced, translated or processed and used in any other way without our prior written consent. This applies in particular to any documents, pages, data or other items we have generated or published.
Images from the photo database and audiovisual files from the archive may be used in a non-commercial and news-related context provided that the copyright holder is acknowledged in the form "AA/photographer's name" for photographic material and "AA" for audiovisual data. Any further use must be approved in writing beforehand.
All other photographs and images used on the website are subject to copyright.
Anything posted on our website pertaining to laws and regulations, official notices and recommendations as well as all other information has been scrupulously checked and is to the best of our knowledge correct. Should you note any inconsistencies, however, the sole authoritative text is the currently applicable version published in the relevant official organ. Recommendations and information relating to legal matters are furnished without any guarantee; we do not provide a legal advice service. The Website Editorial Office reserves the right to modify, supplement or remove any information posted on our website without prior notice.
