As a service provider in the meaning of the German Telemedia Act (TMG), Stefanie Merenyi bears liability for her own contents in accordance with general laws (§ 7 TMG). In this regard, the following should be noticed:

This website is intended to provide common information. Although it may provide information concerning legal issues, such information is not intended to constitute or be a substitute for legal advice from qualified counsel. The use of this website does not create an attorney-client relationship.

The contents of this website are researched and created with great care. Nevertheless, Stefanie Merenyi does not assume any liability for the accuracy, completeness and topicality of the information provided. The use of this website by means of reading, downloads or any other forms of use is solely at the own risk of the user. As far as it is in her power, and not in the power of the processor in the meaning of Art. 28 GDPR or any other third party, Stefanie Merenyi is making reasonable efforts to enable all users to have faultless access to this website. Nevertheless, Stefanie Merenyi does not assume any liability for any damage that may be caused by potential viruses or other harmful components. Moreover, no liability is assumed for any damages arising from the access, use or inability to access or to use this website, or for errors or omissions in their content. Stefanie Merenyi is authorised to change existence and contents of this website at any time without announcement, advice and without giving reasons. All notices on liability also apply in the case of existing attorney-client relationships.

b) Liability for third-party contents and links to other pages

This website includes links to individual pages of external websites of third parties. These links are underlined in red. In general, it should be noticed that the creation of a link on the website of Stefanie Merenyi does not mean her adoption of the third-party content, but much more a mere hint to its existence. Therefore, responsibility for the contents of these external pages is basically with the corresponding publishers. Regarding this, it is also referred to the corresponding assessments in §§ 8 ff. TMG.

Nevertheless, at the time of linking, the linked pages were summarily checked for obvious legal infringements. Illegal contents were not obvious. Also after the time of linking, Stefanie Merenyi will take reasonable efforts to summarily check the established links. As soon as she becomes aware of obvious unlawful contents and provided that the necessary technical and organizational measures are within her power, she will remove these links immediately.

Apart from this, the contents of linked pages are, however, beyond the control of Stefanie Merenyi. Constant and detailed checks for accuracy, completeness and lawfulness of external pages are not possible and therefore not executed. Therefore, Stefanie Merenyi does not assume any liability for contents on external pages.
