1. Website content
The author assumes no liability for the up-to-dateness, accuracy, completeness or quality of the information on this website. Under no circumstances may liability claims be made against the author relating to material or non-material damage arising from the use or non-use of the information provided or arising from the use of incorrect or incomplete information, unless there is evidence of fault by intention or gross negligence on the part of the author.
All material on this website is subject to change and without obligation. The author expressly reserves the right to change, supplement or delete all or part of this website or cease its publication temporarily or permanently without notice.
2. Cross-references and links
In the case of direct or indirect links ("hyperlinks") to external websites outside the author’s scope of responsibility, the author can only be held liable if he/she is aware of the content of these websites and it is technically possible and reasonable for him/her to prevent the use of these websites should they contain illegal material.
The author hereby explicitly confirms that there was no identifiable illegal content on these websites at the time the links were established. The author has no influence on the current or future design, content or authorship of the linked/cross-referenced websites and therefore hereby explicitly distances him-/herself from any content of any linked website that has been altered since the link was established. This disclaimer applies to all links and references on our own website as well as to external entries in guestbooks, discussion forums, link lists and mailing lists set up by the author and in all other forms of database to which external write access is possible. Only the provider of the linked/cross-referenced website can be held liable for any illegal, incorrect or incomplete content and in particular for damage resulting from the use or non-use of any information provided, and not the provider of the website that simply refers to the content in question.
3. Copyright and trademark law
In all publications, the author makes every effort to adhere to copyright regulations applying to any images, graphics, audio and video clips or text used, and to use only images, graphics, audio and video clips or text that are produced by him/her or are in the public domain.
Any references in the material on this website to brands or trademarks that may be protected by a third party are unconditionally subject to the relevant laws on trademarks and to the property rights of the registered owner. Even where a brand or trademark is merely mentioned, it should not be assumed that it is not protected by the rights of a third party!
The copyright for published material produced by the author remains exclusively with the author of these web pages. The reproduction or use of any such images, graphics, audio and video clips or text in other electronic or printed publications without the express permission of the author is prohibited.
4. Data protection
Where the website offers the option of entering personal or business details (e-mail addresses, names, addresses), any disclosure of such data by the user is entirely voluntary. All services may also be used and paid for without entering such data or by entering anonymised data or a pseudonym insofar as this is technically possible and reasonable. Third-party use of the data provided within the legal notice or similar contact data, such as postal addresses, telephone and fax numbers and e-mail addresses, for the purpose of sending unsolicited information is prohibited. If this prohibition is ignored, we expressly reserve the right to take legal action against senders of spam e-mails.
5. Validity of this liability disclaimer
This liability disclaimer shall be deemed part of the online information linking to this page. Should any part of or any wording in this text fail to comply, no longer comply or only partially comply with the prevailing law, this shall not affect the content or validity of the remaining sections of this document.
