1. Content of the online offer
The author assumes no responsibility whatsoever for the topicality, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims against the author relating to damages of a material or non-material kind which were caused by the use or disuse of the information presented or by the use of incorrect and incomplete information are excluded on principle, provided there is no evidence of wilful intent or gross negligence on the part of the author. All offers are non-binding and subject to change. The author expressly reserves the right to change, add or delete parts of the pages or the entire website without any special notification or to suspend its publication temporarily or permanently.
2. Referrals and links
In the case of direct or indirect references to Web pages ("hyperlinks") that lie outside the author's area of responsibility, an obligation of liability would come into effect exclusively in the event that the author has knowledge of the content and that it would be technically possible and reasonable for the author to prevent usage in the event of illegal content. The author herewith explicitly declares that at the time of setting up the links no illegal content could be discerned on the pages to which links were being made. The author has no influence whatsoever over the current and future arrangement, content or authorship of the linked/integrated pages. For this reason the author herewith explicitly distances him/herself from all contents of the linked/integrated pages that were altered after the link was set up. This statement applies to all the links and references within the author's own Internet offer as well as to entries by other people in the guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists and in all other forms of databases set up by the author, the contents of which are accessible and can be modified externally. The provider of the page to which reference is made, not the person who merely makes reference through links to the respective publication, is solely liable for illegal, incorrect or incomplete content and in particular for damage arising from the use or non-use of information presented in this way.
3. Copyright and trademark law
The author endeavours to respect the copyrights of the images, graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts used in all publications, to use graphics, images, sound documents, video sequences and texts constructed by him/herself or to resort to licence-free graphics, images, sound documents, video sequences and texts. All the brands and trademarks mentioned in the Internet offer, and if applicable protected by third parties, are subject without restriction to the provisions of the Trademark Law currently prevailing at the time and to the rights of ownership of the respectively registered owners. The conclusion shall not be drawn that trademarks, solely on the basis of merely being mentioned, are not protected by the rights of third parties! The copyright for objects and pages constructed by the author him/herself remain solely with the author of the pages. Reproduction or use of such graphics, images, sound documents, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without the explicit agreement of the author.
In as far as the possibility to enter personal or business data (e-mail addresses, names, addresses) exists within the Internet offer, the disclosure of this information on the part of the user takes place on an explicitly voluntary basis. The utilization of, and payment for, all services offered, shall also be permitted - in as far as technically possible and reasonable - without providing such data or by providing anonymized data or a pseudonym. The use of contact information published in the context of the imprint or comparable information, such as postal addresses, telephone and fax numbers as well as e-mail addresses by third parties for the sending of information not explicitly requested, is not permitted. The right to legal measures against the senders of so-called spam mail in contravention of this prohibition is explicitly reserved.
5. Legal validity of this disclaimer
This disclaimer of liability is to be considered as part of the Internet offer, out of which reference was made to this page. In as far as parts or individual formulations of this text should not, no longer or not completely correspond to the prevailing legal situation, the remaining parts of the document remain unaffected by this in their content and legal validity.
