1. Exclusion of Liability
The author assumes no liability for the quality of the information supplied or its being up-to-date, correct, or complete. Liability claims against the author related to material or intangible damages caused by use or non-use of the information supplied and/or the use of incorrect and incomplete information are excluded in principle, provided the cause is not attributable to the author on the basis of wilful misconduct or gross negligence. Our offers are open and non-binding. The author explicitly reserves the right to change, supplement, delete or temporarily or permanently stop publication of parts of the website or the entire website without special notice.
2. References and Links
For direct or indirect references to other websites (“links”) outside the author’s scope of responsibility, liability would only apply if the author had knowledge of the content and it were technically possible and reasonable for the author to prevent the use of illegal content. The author therefore explicitly declares that, at the time the links were created, the websites linked to did not have any illegal content. The author has no influence on the current or future design or content of the websites linked to. For this reason, the author hereby explicitly distances himself from the content of all websites linked to that have been changed since the links were originally created. This applies to all links and references placed within the author’s own website, as well as to entries by third parties in guest-books, discussion forums and mailing lists created by the author. In the event of illegal, incorrect or incomplete content, and in particular, of damage caused by the use or non-use of such information, solely the owner of the website to which reference was made is liable, not the owner of the page on which the links were placed.
3. Copyrights and Trademarks
The author is committed to observe the copyrights of the images, audio files, video sequences and texts used in all publications, to use images, audio files, video sequences and texts that have been created by the author, or to make use of licence-free images, audio files, video sequences and texts. All trademarks used on the website, including those that may be protected by third parties, are unconditionally subject to the provisions of the valid trademark law and the ownership rights of the registered owners. The conclusion should not be drawn that trademarks are not protected by third parties simply because they are named! The copyright for items created and published by the author remains solely with the author of the site/pages. Reproduction or use of such images, audio files, video sequences and texts in other electronic or print publications is not permitted without the express approval of the author.
4. Legal Validity of this Exclusion of Liability
This exclusion of liability should be viewed as a component of the internet website from which this page was linked to. In the event that parts or individual formulations of this text do not, no longer, or do not fully correspond to the applicable legal situation, the remaining parts of the document remain unaffected in respect of their content and validity.
