1. Content of the online offer
The author declines all liability for the up-to-datedness, accuracy, completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims against the author for damages of material or immaterial nature resulting from the use or non-use of the published information or from the use of faulty and incomplete information are excluded provided there is no proven deliberate or grossly negligent fault of the author.
All offers are without obligation. The author expressly reserves the right to change, amend or delete parts of the pages or the entire offer without particular prior notice, or to temporarily or permanently terminate the publication.
2. Reference and links
In the case of direct or indirect references to external web sites (“hyperlinks”) that lie outside the area of responsibility of the author, a liability obligation would only come into force in the event that the author had knowledge of those contents and it were technically possible and reasonable to expect that, in the case of illegal contents, usage could have been prevented by him.
The author hereby declares that at the time of inclusion no illegal contents were detectable on the linked pages. The author has no influence whatsoever on current or future design, the contents or authorship of the linked/associated pages. He therefore distances himself expressly from the contents of all linked/associated pages that were changed following link inclusion. This declaration applies to all links and references included in his own Internet offer and external entries in visitor books, discussion forums and mailing lists set up by the author and in all other forms of databases with external editing access on their content. The liability for illegal, incorrect or incomplete contents and in particular for damage arising from the use or non-use of such information offered is borne exclusively by the provider of the page referred to and not the person merely referring to the respective publication via links.
3. Copyright and licence rights
The author endeavours to observe the copyrights of the images, diagrams, sound documents, video sequences and texts used, and to use images, diagrams, sound documents, video sequences and texts created by him personally or to resort to licence-free diagrams, sound documents, video sequences and texts.
All brands and trademarks mentioned or protected by third parties specified within the Internet offer are subject without restriction to the provisions of the applicable licence law and property rights of the registered holders. The mere mention of a brand is not an indication that it is not protected by any third-party rights!
The copyright for published objects which were created by the author himself is reserved solely for the author of the pages. Duplication or use of such diagrams, sound documents, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without the express consent of the author.
4. Data protection
Provided the website offers the possibility of entering personal or business data (e-mail addresses, names, addresses), said data is disclosed by the user on an explicitly voluntary basis. Usage and payment of all services offered are – insofar as technically feasible and reasonable – permitted without any such data being entered or through the use of anonymised data or a pseudonym. It is not permitted for third parties to make use of the contact data published in the imprint or similar data such as postal addresses, telephone and fax numbers and e-mail addresses to send information that has not been explicitly requested. The author has the explicit right to take legal measures against senders of so-called spam mails that violate this regulation.
5. Legal effect of the disclaimer
This disclaimer should be regarded as part of the Internet offer from which reference is made to this page. Should parts or individual wordings of this text not correspond, no longer correspond or not entirely correspond to the applicable laws, the remaining parts of this document remain unaffected in respect of content and validity.
