1. Content of the website
The author offers no guarantee that the information provided is up to date, correct, complete or of any specific quality. Any liability claims against the author which are based on material or immaterial damage resulting from the use or non-use of the information offered, or from the use of faulty and incomplete information, are excluded under all circumstances unless it is proved that the author acted wilfully or with gross negligence. All information offered shall be subject to change and non-binding. The author explicitly reserves the right to change, supplement or delete parts of the website or the whole website without any special announcement, or to cease publication temporarily or permanently.
2. References and links
For any direct or indirect references to third party websites ("hyperlinks") which are outside the sphere of responsibility of the author, any obligation to take liability would only arise if the author knows of the content and it would have been technically possible and reasonably feasible for the author to prevent any use involving illegal content. The author herewith explicitly declares that no illegal content was recognisably present on the linked websites at the time when the link was published. The author has no influence on the current and future design, content or authorship of the linked pages. Therefore, the author herewith explicitly dissociates himself from all content of any linked websites which is changed after the link is set. This declaration applies to all links and references placed within the author's own website content and to any third party content in any guestbooks, discussion forums, link lists, mailing lists and all other types of database set up by the author to which external users have any write access. The liability for any illegal, faulty or incomplete content, and especially but not only for any damage or loss which may arise from the use or non-use of information presented in this way, shall lie only with the provider of the website which is referred to, not the person who merely provides links referring to the relevant publication.
3. Copyright and trademark rights
In all publications, the author shall make every effort to observe the copyright of any images, artwork, sound documents, video sequences and texts which are used, to use images, artwork, sound documents, video sequences and texts created by the author himself or to draw on licence-free artwork, sound documents, video sequences and texts. All brand names and trademarks mentioned in the Internet presentation for which third parties have acquired protection rights shall be subject without restriction to the provisions of the respective current labelling requirements and property rights of the respective registered owners. The mere mention of the name shall not be taken to indicate that trademarks are not protected by rights of third parties! The copyright for published objects developed by the author shall remain solely with the author of the pages. Any reproduction or use of such artwork, sound documents, video sequences and texts in any other electronic or printed publications is not permissible without the explicit approval of the author.t.
4. Data protection
If the website offers the opportunity to enter any personal or business data (e-mail address, name, address), any disclosure of this information by the user shall explicitly be voluntary in nature. The utilisation and payment of all services offered shall also be allowed - as far as is technically possible and reasonably feasible - without disclosing such data or by providing anonymous data or a pseudonym. Any use of the contact details published in the legal information or similar information, such as postal addresses, phone numbers, fax numbers and e-mail addresses by third parties to send out information which has not been expressly requested is forbidden. The right to take legal action against anyone who sends such spam mail by violating this prohibition is explicitly reserved.
5. Legal validity of this exclusion of liability
This exclusion of liability shall be regarded as part of the website, and a reference to this page is included in the website. If any parts or individual wordings in this text do not comply, no longer comply or incompletely comply with the applicable legal position, this shall not affect the content and validity of the other parts of the document.
