3.3 By registering for the newsletter service, the user agrees to the use of their e-mail address for this purpose as well as the data protection regulations and general terms and conditions. After entering and sending the registration information, the user will receive a confirmation e-mail in which the registration of the e-mail address must be verified via a confirmation link so that the newsletter can be subscribed to. The Provider assumes no liability for the correctness, completeness and topicality of the information distributed by the newsletter. The Provider is not liable for offers of third parties that are advertised in the newsletter or for links and references that are made accessible in the context of the newsletter. The Provider does not guarantee that the newsletter service will be available at all times and can be called up by interested parties, especially if the smooth availability of the newsletter can no longer be guaranteed due to technical difficulties.

If the domicile or habitual residence of the contractual partner, even in the case of non-merchants, is unknown at the time the action is filed or if the contractual partner has moved their domicile or habitual residence outside the Federal Republic of Germany after conclusion of the contract, the place of jurisdiction shall be deemed to be the registered office of the Provider.
