Links are dynamic references. PoINT Software & Systems GmbH selected and veritifed the linked sites prior to placing the link. However, PoINT Software & Systems GmbH does not regularly verify the contents to which a link refers with respect to modifications that could lead to a new violation. PoINT Software & Systems GmbH expressly distances itself from unlawful contents of other providers to which a link is provided. If PoINT Software & Systems GmbH ascertains or becomes aware through others that specific contents to which it has placed a link give rise to a violation of the law, it will remove the link to such contents.

SSL encryption

For security reasons and to protect confidential information during transmission (such as when you submit inquiries), this website uses SSL encryption. An encrypted connection is identifiable by the use of the “https://” prefix instead of “http://” in your web browser’s address bar, as well as the lock symbol in the browser window.

Using SSL encryption prevents third parties from accessing any data you send to us.

Like most websites, YouTube uses cookies to collect information about visitors to its website. Among other things, YouTube uses this information to collect statistics for videos, to prevent fraud and to improve user-friendliness. This also establishes a connection with the Google DoubleClick network. When you start the video, this may initiate additional data-processing transactions over which we have no influence. For more information about data protection on YouTube, please see the service’s data protection statement at www.youtube.com/t/privacy
