Accord­ing to § 7 para.1 TMG, service providers are respon­si­ble for their own content on the pages they offer under the gener­al laws. Accord­ing to §§ 8, 9 and 10 TMG, howev­er, service providers are not oblig­at­ed to moni­tor trans­mit­ted or stored third-party infor­ma­tion or to inves­ti­gate circum­stances that indi­cate ille­gal activity.

Note on the prob­lem of exter­nal links

As a content provider, GMDS is respon­si­ble for its “own content”, which it makes avail­able for use, in accor­dance with gener­al legis­la­tion pursuant to Section 7 (1) of the German Tele­me­dia Act (Teleme­di­enge­setz). A distinc­tion must be made between this own content and cross-references (“links”) to content provid­ed by other providers. By means of the cross-reference, GMDS provides “third-party content” for use, which is marked in this way:

Links” are always “living” (dynam­ic) refer­ences. When the link was first creat­ed, GMDS checked the exter­nal content to deter­mine whether it might give rise to any civil or crim­i­nal liabil­i­ty. Howev­er, GMDS does not constant­ly check the content to which it refers in its offer for changes that could give rise to a new respon­si­bil­i­ty. If it discov­ers or is informed by others that a specif­ic offer to which it has provid­ed a link trig­gers civil or crim­i­nal liabil­i­ty, it will remove the refer­ence to this offer.

Should you find any ques­tion­able or ille­gal content on the pages of this website or on pages to which refer­ence is made, GMDS would be grate­ful if you would inform us accordingly.

GMDS reserves the right to change or discon­tin­ue its service at any time.
