Disclaimer of liability

1. Online content

The author makes no warranty whatsoever for the actuality, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Claims for liability against the author, based on material or intangible damages, caused by the usage or non-usage of the information presented or through the usage or non-usage of faulty or incomplete information are categorically excluded, insofar as there is no evidence of wilful intent or gross negligence.

All content is subject to change and non-binding. The author explicitly reserves the right to change, amend, and delete parts of the pages or the complete content without special notice or to temporarily or permanently stop publication.

2. References and links

For direct or indirect references to external websites („links“), which lie outside the area of responsibility of the author, an obligation of liability would only occur in the case of the author having knowledge of the content and that it would be technically possible and reasonable for him to prevent usage in the case of illegal content.

The author hereby declares explicitly that at the point in time at which the link was created, the relevant linked pages were free of illegal content. The author has no influence whatsoever on the actual and future design, content or authorship of the linked/connected pages. Therefore, the author explicitly disassociates himself from all content of all linked/connected pages which have been changed since the link was created. This statement is valid for all links and references made within the own internet content, as well as for external contributions to guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists set up by the author.

The liability for illegal, faulty or incomplete content and in particular for damages caused by the usage or non-usage of such information presented there is only incurred by the provider of the pages to which reference was made, and not by he who only referred to the relevant publication in the form of links.

3. Copyright and trademark rights

The author makes every effort in all publications to respect the copyright of graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts used therein, to use graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts which he has created himself or to resort to license-free graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts.

All those trademarks and brands which are referred to within the internet content, which may be registered as such by third parties, are subject to the relevant valid trademark law and rights of ownership of the relevant registered proprietors. One should not come to the conclusion that trademarks are not protected by third party rights solely on the basis of simple naming!

The copyright for published objects which have been created by the author himself remains with the author of the pages. Duplication or usage of such graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications is not allowed without explicit authorization by the author.

4. Data protection

Insofar as there is the possibility of entering personal or business data (email addresses, names, addresses) within the website, this disclosure of this data on the part of the user takes place on an explicitly voluntary basis. The usage of and payment for the services offered is – as far as it is technically possible and reasonable – also possible without entering such data or by entering anonymous data or a pseudonym.

5. Validity of this disclaimer of liability

So far as parts or single formulations of this text do not, not anymore or not completely conform to the applicable legal situation, the residual parts of the document remain unaffected by this in their content and validity.
