Electronic communications

Please note that communication via e-mail or software and applications (e.g. Skype, Google Hangouts, Webex, Whatsapp, etc.) is not protected against unauthorized access by third parties and is therefore neither secure nor confidential. By using such means of communication, you acknowledge the risks involved and at the same time agree that we may also communicate with you via the relevant channel. We decline any liability for a possible violation of the attorney-client privilege insofar as this is due to communication via e-mail.
E-mails may not be delivered or not delivered on time. We recommend that you send us urgent inquiries and important information by mail or courier and to request an acknowledgement of receipt for e-mails or software and applications.
The transmission of electronic messages to our e-mail addresses or via contact form does in no case establish a contractual relationship.
