Exclusion of liability
1. Content of the online offer
The author does not accept any responsibility for the up-to-dateness, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Claims of liability against the author relating to damage of a material or non-material nature that have been caused by the use or non-use of the information provided and/or by the use of erroneous and incomplete information shall be completely excluded if the author is proven not to be intentionally or grossly negligent. All offers are subject to change without notice and are not binding. The author expressly reserves the right to change, add to or delete parts of the pages or the entire offer without notice or to terminate publication temporarily or permanently.
2. References and links
In the case of direct (hyperlinks) or indirect references to third-party websites that lie outside the author's area of responsibility, the author shall be liable only in the event that the author was aware of the content and it would have been technically possible for him and reasonable to prevent their use in the event of their linking to illegal content. The author hereby expressly states that at the point of setting the links no illegal content on the linked pages was identified. The author has no influence whatsoever on the current or future design, the content or the copyright of the linked pages. He therefore expressly distances himself from all content of all linked pages that have been altered since the links were set. This statement applies to all links and references set within this website and to all external entries in guest books, discussion forums, link directories, mailing lists and in all other forms of database on whose content external write-access is possible.
The sole liability for illegal, erroneous or incomplete content and in particular for damage that arises from the use or non-use of such type of information offered rests with the provider of the site which has been referred to, not to the provider who has linked to the respective publication.
3. Copyright and trademark law
The author has endeavored to acknowledge the copyright in all publications of the use of graphics, audio files, video sequences and texts, and to use graphics, audio files, video sequences and texts created by him or to access license-free graphics, audio files, video sequences and texts. All protected logos and trademarks specified within the internet offer and any protected by third parties are subject without restriction to the provisions of the respective applicable trademark law and the rights of ownership of their respective registered owners. It should not be concluded that their mere mention does imply that trademarks are not protected by the rights of third parties. The copyright for published objects drawn up by the author himself remains solely with the author of the pages. Copying or using such graphics, audio files, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without the express consent of the author.
4. Data protection
If there is the option of inputting personal or business data (e-mail addresses, names, addresses) into pages within the website, the disclosure of these data by the user shall take place expressly on a voluntary basis. The use and payment of all services offered is – as far as is technically possible and reasonable – also permitted without having to input such data and/or permitted by giving anonymous data or a pseudonym. The use by third parties of the published contact data within the legal details section of this website or comparable details such as postal addresses, telephone or fax numbers and e-mail addresses for transmitting unsolicited information is not permitted. Legal action against senders of spam mail in the event of violating this prohibition is expressly reserved.
