1. Content of the online presence

The author does not guarantee the topicality, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims made against the author which derive from either material or non-material damage caused by the utilisation or non-utilisation of the information provided or by the utilisation of incorrect and incomplete information are excluded in principle, insofar as there is no demonstrably intentional or gross negligent blame on the part of the author. All offers are without engagement and non-binding. The author expressly reserves the right to change, supplement, or delete the presence either in part or in whole, and to withdraw the publication either for a period or completely.

2. Hyperlinks

As regards direct or indirect references to third-party internet sites (“Links”), which lie outside the area of responsibility of the author, a liability obligation would only come into effect in the event that the author has knowledge of the contents and it is technically possible and reasonable to prevent the utilisation if the contents were illegal. The author hereby expressly declares that at the time the links were established no illegal contents were detectable on the linked pages. The author has no influence on the current and future design, contents or the copyright of the linked/reference pages. As a result he hereby distances himself expressly from all contents to all linked/reference pages that were changed after the link was established. This declaration applies to all links and references as well as third-party contributions in guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists set up by the author within his own internet presence. The provider of the site to which a link was established is solely liable for illegal, incorrect or incomplete contents and in particular for damage resulting from the utilisation or non-utilisation of such information provided and not the person who has merely referred to the publication in question by means of links.

3. Copyright and trademark law

The author endeavours to observe copyrights of the graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts used in all publications, to employ graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts created by himself or to draw on licence-free graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts. All trademarks and brands that are named and, if applicable, which third parties have protected under trademark and brand law are subject without restriction to the provisions of the respectively valid trademark law and the ownership rights of the respectively registered owner. The mere naming is not to be construed to mean that the brands are not protected by third party rights! The copyright for published objects that the author has created himself reside solely with the author of the pages. Reproduction or utilisation of such graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without first obtaining the explicit consent of the author.

4. Data Protection

Insofar as the internet presence provides the possibility to enter personal or business data (e-mail addresses, names, addresses), the user provides this information on a purely voluntarily basis. The utilisation and payment of provided services is also permitted – insofar as this is technically possible and reasonable – without the requirement to enter such data or by entering anonymisated data or by giving a pseudonym.

5. Legal validity of this legal disclaimer

This liability disclaimer is to be considered as a part of the internet presence, from which reference to these pages was made. Insofar as parts or individual wordings of this text do not, no longer or in no way comply with prevailing law, the remaining parts of the documents remain unaffected by this in their content and their validity.
