The author shall accept no guarantee for the currentness, accuracy, completeness or quality of the information provided. Claims for liability against the author relating to damage of a material or immaterial nature, resulting from the use or non-use of the information provided, or from the use of inaccurate and incomplete information, are excluded as a matter of principle, provided no provable intentional or grossly negligent fault applies on the part of the author. All offers are without obligation and non-binding. The author expressly reserves the right to amend, augment or delete parts of the site or to cancel the entire offer, either for a time or finally, without separate notification.
In the case of direct or indirect reference to external websites (“hyperlinks”) which are outside the sphere of influence of the author, a liability obligation would only apply in the event that the author was aware of the content and it would have been technically possible and reasonable for him to prevent the use in the case of unlawful content. The author expressly declares that at the time of insertion of the link no unlawful content was recognisable on the sites to be linked. The author has no influence whatsoever on the current and future design, content or authorship of the linked/connected sites. For this reason, he expressly distances himself from all content of all linked/connected sites which has been altered subsequent to the insertion of the link. This statement shall apply for all links and references inserted within our own Internet offer as well as for external entries in guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists set up by the author. Only the operator of the site to which this kind of reference is made shall be liable for unlawful, inaccurate or incomplete content and in particular for damage or losses arising from the use or non-use of this kind of offered information, and not the person who refers to the respective publication through links.
The author shall endeavour to observe the copyright of the graphics, audio files, video clips and texts used in all publications, to use graphics, audio files, video clips and texts which he has compiled himself or to avail of licence-free graphics, audio files, video clips and texts. All trademarks and brands named within the Internet offer and, where applicable, protected by third parties are subject without restriction to the terms of the respective trademark laws and title of the respective registered owner. The mere nomination does not provide grounds for the conclusion that brands have not been protected by third parties! The copyright for published items compiled by the author himself shall remain solely with the author of the sites. Any reproduction or use of graphics, audio files, video clips and texts of this kind in other electronic or printed media is not permitted without the express approval of the author.
Where the possibility exists within the Internet offer for entering personal or business data (e-mail addresses, names, and addresses), the provision of this data by the user shall ensue on a purely voluntary basis. The availing of and payment of all offered services is – where technically possible and reasonable – permitted even without the provision of this data or with the provision of anonymised data or a pseudonym. The use of the contact data published within the framework of the legal details or comparable details, such as postal address, telephone and fax numbers as well as e-mail addresses, by third parties for sending information which has not been specifically solicited is not permitted. The right to take legal steps against the sender of so-called spam mails in cases of infringement of this prohibition is expressly reserved.
This disclaimer of liability is to be regarded as a part of the Internet offer to which reference is made on this site. Should parts of or individual terms of this text not, no longer, or not completely comply with the currently valid legal situation, the remaining parts of the document shall remain unaffected in content and validity.
