Liability for contents

Pursuant to §§ 8 to 10 TMG, as a service provider we are not however obligated to monitor transmitted or saved external information or to actively search for conditions that could indicate an illegal activity.
This does not affect the obligation to remove or block the use of information in accordance with the general legal provisions. However, liability in this regard arises only from the time that we become aware of a concrete infringement of the law. Upon becoming aware of such an infringement we will remove the contents without undue delay.

Only the provider or operator of the linked-to site is responsible for its contents. The linked-to sites were checked for possible illegality at the time of linking. No illegal contents were recognisable at the time of linking.
A permanent control of the contents of the linked-to sites cannot be reasonably expected without concrete grounds for suspecting an infringement. We will remove links without undue delay when we become aware of infringements.

Legally relevant applications and declarations via electronic mail
Lörrach municipality provides the option of electronic communication. Regarding administrative procedures, electronic communication is based on § 3a of the Administrative Procedures Act (Verwaltungsverfahrensgesetz) (§ 3a Federal Administrative Procedures Act (VwVfG) in connection with § 1 para. 1 State Administrative Procedures Act (LVwVfG) and State Promotion of Electronic Communication Act).
Accordingly, the transmission of electronic documents is permissible provided that the recipient has prepared an access point to receive them. Otherwise electronic mail (e-mail) with a qualified electronic signature is equivalent to the written form (meaning a personal signature).
We have set up the following e-mail address for electronic communication via e-mail: email@example.com. However, please note the following restrictions.
Acceptance of attachments in electronic mail
Please note that the administration cannot support all common file formats and applications when you send it e-mails with attachments. We can process the following file formats:
Adobe Acrobat (.pdf)
Rich Text (.rtf)
Microsoft Word Version 2007 and above (.docx)
Microsoft Excel Version 2007 and above (.xlsx)
Microsoft Powerpoint Version 2000 and above (.pptx, .ppsx)

E-mails must correspond to the Internet standard (SMTP, MIME) and use fonts that are common in Western Europe. If you use another format, the e-mail cannot be processed. This list is kept up to date.
Acceptance of encrypted electronic mail
For technical and organisational reasons, Lörrach municipality cannot decrypt encrypted e-mails at this time. If you want to send us confidential information, please use the mail.
Acceptance of signed electronic mail
As the technical infrastructure for the processing of e-mails with qualified electronic signature is missing, Lörrach municipality cannot check electronic signatures for authenticity and validity at this time. As a result, you cannot send documents that require the written form, i.e. a personal signature (e.g. objections, appeals or contestations), in electronic form. We kindly ask that you resort to communication on paper in such cases.
If we cannot process an e-mail, the recipient will inform you of this. This case can be triggered for example by computer viruses, technical problems of a general nature or deviations from the above-mentioned technical conditions.
