1. Content of the Online Site

The author does not assume any warranties whatsoever for the quality of the information provided on this site or that this information is up to date, correct or complete. Liability claims against the author based on any damage or loss, whether of material or intangible nature, suffered as a consequence of the utilisation or non-utilisation of the provided information or of the utilisation of incorrect and incomplete information are excluded in all cases, provided that the author has not been verifiably culpable of wilful intent or gross negligence. All offers are subject to change and non-binding. The author expressly reserves the right to modify, supplement or delete any parts of the site or the site as a whole or to suspend, whether temporarily or permanently, its publication without specific prior announcement.

2. References and Links

If and when references, whether direct or indirect, to third-party internet sites (links) that are outside of the author’s sphere of responsibility are followed, a liability obligation arises solely and exclusively in the event that the author was aware of the contents of such sites and it would have been technically possible and reasonable for the author to prevent the use of any illegal content. The author hereby expressly declares that no illegal content was discernible on the linked sites at the time the links were set. The author does not have any influence whatsoever over the current and future design, content or authorship of any linked sites. He therefore expressly dissociates himself from any and all contents of any and all linked sites that have been changed since the setting of the link. This statement applies to any and all links and references set within the author’s own internet site as well as in third-party entries in guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists that the author may have established. Solely the operator of the site to which a link has been set, and not the party who merely refers to the publication by means of links, is liable for illegal, incorrect or incomplete contents and, in particular, for any and all loss and/or damage that may result from the utilisation or non-utilisation of any such offered information

3. Copyrights and Trademark Rights

The author strives at all times to respect copyrights of any and all graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts used in any publications, to utilise graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts which he has created himself or to make use of graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts which are not subject to licensing. Any and all trademarks and brand names used on the internet site and which may be protected by third parties are governed without restrictions by the provisions of the applicable trademark laws and the property rights protecting the owners of such rights. The simple mention of any trademarks or brand names shall not be interpreted as meaning that the trademarks or brand names are not protected by third-party rights! The author of the site retains sole and exclusive copyright to any and all published items which the author has himself created. The reproduction or utilisation of any such graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts in any other electronic or printed publications without the author’s express consent is prohibited.

4. Data Protection

If and when there is an opportunity to enter personal or business data (email addresses, names, addresses) within an internet site, the disclosure of these data by the user is expressly voluntary. The utilisation of and payment for all offered services is also possible — to the extent technically feasible and reasonable — without the disclosure of any such data or by entering anonymised data or a pseudonym.

5. Legal Validity of This Disclaimer

This disclaimer shall be regarded as a part of the internet site from which users are linked to this page. If and when parts or specific wordings of this text do not or do not any longer or do not completely comply with current legal requirements, the remaining parts of the document shall not be affected in their content and validity.
