Exclusion of liability

1. Content of online offer

The author provides no guarantee for the up-to-dateness, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Claims for liability against the author arising from loss of a material or non-material nature caused by the use or non-use of the information provided or the use of incorrect and incomplete information are categorically excluded, to the extent that no verifiable intent or grossly negligent behaviour exists on the part of the author. All offers are subject to confirmation and non-binding. The author reserves the express right to amend, supplement or delete parts of the site or the entire offer without prior announcement, or to cease publication either temporarily or permanently.

2. Reference to links

In the case of direct or indirect reference to third party internet sites ("hyperlinks") that lie beyond the scope of responsibility of the author liability shall exist exclusively in cases where the author is aware of the content and it is technically possible and feasible to prevent use in the case of illegal content.  The author hereby expressly declares that, at the time of establishing the links, no illegal content was recognisable on the external sites to which links have been established. The author has no influence whatsoever on the future design, content or copyright of the sites to which links have been established. The author therefore expressly distances himself from all content of sites to which links have been established that is amended following the establishing of the link. This statement also applies to all links and references within the own internet offer, as well as for third party entries in guest books, discussion forums, link directories, mailing lists and all other forms of database where the content may be accessed from external writing sources. Liability for illegal, incorrect or incomplete content and, in particular, for loss incurred from the use or non-use of such information offered remains solely with the provider of the site to which the link is established, not to the provider from whose site links to the respective publication are merely established.

3. Copyright and trademark rights

In his publications, the author attempts to observe the copyrights for images, audio documents, video sequences and texts incorporated, to utilise images, audio documents, video sequences and texts that he himself has created or licence-free graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts. All trademarks and registered trademarks included in the internet offer and possibly protected by third parties are subject to the unlimited terms of the respectively valid trademark law and the ownership rights of the respectively registered owners. A mere naming does not suffice to indicate that a trademark is not protected by the rights of a third party!
The copyright for items created by the author himself lies solely with the author of the site. The reproduction or utilisation of such graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts in other electronic or print publications is not permitted without the prior express agreement of the author.

4. Data protection

To the extent that, within the internet offer, the possibility exists to enter personal or business data (e-mail addresses, names, addresses), the provision of that data on the part of the user shall be on an expressly voluntary basis. The utilisation and payment of all offered services is - where technically possible and reasonable - also possible without the provision of such data or with the provision of anonymised data or a pseudonym. The utilisation of the contact data published in the scope of the imprint or comparable details, such as postal addresses, telephone and fax numbers and e-mail addresses via third parties for the transmission of information not expressly requested is not permitted. The right is reserved to take legal action against the senders of so-called spam mail in cases of infringement of this prohibition.

5. Legal effectiveness of the this exclusion of liability

This exclusion of liability is to be considered a component of the internet offer from which this site refers. Should parts or individual formulations of this text fail to comply with, no longer comply with or not completely comply with the applicable legislation, the remainder of the document shall not be affected by this in its content and validity.
