1. Contents of online offerings
The author does not assume any liability whatsoever for the topicality, accuracy, completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims against the author based on damage of a material or non-material nature resulting from the utilisation or non-utilisation of the presented information and/or through the utilisation of erroneous and incomplete information are fundamentally excluded, insofar as there is no demonstrably wilful or grossly negligent blame on the part of the author.
All offers are subject to confirmation and non-binding. The author expressly reserves the right to change, supplement or delete parts of pages or the entire offer without separate notice or to temporarily or permanently discontinue publication.
2. References and links
With regard to direct or indirect references to external websites (“hyperlinks”) which are outside the author’s area of responsibility, a liability obligation would only come into effect in the event that the author has no knowledge of the contents and it would not be technically possible and feasible for him to prevent utilisation in the event of illegal contents.
The author hereby expressly declares that no illegal contents were detectable on the linked pages at the time of linkage. The author has no influence whatsoever on the current and future design, the contents or the authorship of linked/associated sites. Therefore the author hereby expressly distances himself from all contents of linked/associated sites which have been altered after linkage. This statement applies to all links and references set within the author’s own website as well as to external entries in guest books, discussion forums, link directories and mailing lists set up by the author and in all other forms of databases in whose content external writing access are possible. Only the provider of the site to which reference was made shall be liable for illegal, erroneous or incomplete contents, and particularly for damage which arises from the utilisation or non-utilisation of such information provided, but not the person who merely refers to the respective publication by means of links.
3. Copyright and trademark law
In all publications, the author endeavours to observe the copyrights of the graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts used, to use graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts created by himself or to resort to licence-free graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts. All brands and trademarks mentioned within the Internet offer and possibly protected by third parties are subject without restriction to the provisions of the respectively valid trademark and the ownership rights of the respectively registered owner. The mere mention alone must not lead to the conclusion that trademarks are not protected by third-party rights!
The copyright for published items created by the author himself remains solely with the author of the pages. A reproduction or use of such graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without the author’s explicit consent.
4. Data privacy
If there is a possibility of entering personal or business data (e-mail addresses, names, addresses) within the Internet offer, the disclosure of this data on the part of the user occurs on an explicitly voluntary basis. The use and payment of all services offered is - insofar as it is technically possible and reasonable - also permitted without indication of such data and/or by indicating anonymised data or a pseudonym. The utilisation of contact data published within the framework of the imprint or comparable statements such as postal addresses, telephone and fax numbers as well as e-mail addresses by third parties for transmission of information not explicitly requested is not permitted. Legal steps against the senders of so-called “spam mails” in case of breaches against this prohibition are expressly reserved.
5. Legal validity of this disclaimer
This disclaimer is to be deemed as part of the Internet offer from which this site was referred to. If parts of individual formulations of this text no longer or do not fully comply with the prevailing legal situation, the remaining parts of the document shall remain unaffected by this in terms of their content and their validity.
