1. Content of the website

The author offers no warranty whatever for the up-to-dateness, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims against the author relating to material or non-material damage caused through the use or non-use of the information presented, or through the use of incorrect and incomplete information, are precluded unless the author is verifiably guilty of any wilful misconduct or gross negligence. All offers are subject to change and non-binding. The author expressly reserves the right to alter, supplement or delete parts of the web pages or the entire website, or to cease publication temporarily or permanently.


2. Hyperlinks and links

In the case of direct or indirect links to outside websites ("hyperlinks") that lie beyond the author’s sphere of responsibility, a liability obligation would only enter into effect in the event that the author has knowledge of the content, and that it is technically possible and reasonable for the author to prevent its use in the event of any illegal content. The author hereby expressly states that at the time of creating the link, no illegal content was discernible on the websites to be linked. The author has no influence whatever over the current and future design, the content or the copyright of the linked websites. For this reason, the author hereby dissociates themselves from any content on any linked websites which has been changed since the creation of the link. This declaration applies to all links and hyperlinks created on the author’s own website, as well as to entries made by third parties in guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists set up by the author. Only the provider of the web page to which the link leads is liable for illegal, incorrect or incomplete content and, in particular, for any damage that may arise due to the use or non-use of such presented information, and not the website operator who merely displays links to the web page concerned.


3. Copyright and trademark law

In all publications, the author endeavours to observe the copyright of the graphics, audio files, video sequences and texts used, to use self-created graphics, audio files, video sequences and texts or to utilise graphics, audio files, video sequences and texts that are in the public domain. All trademarks and brand names named on the website and, if applicable, protected by third party copyright, are unrestrictedly subject to the provisions of the valid trademark law and to the rights of ownership of their respective registered owners. Just because trademarks are named, it cannot therefore be concluded that they are not protected by third party copyright!The copyright for published objects self-created by the author shall remain the sole property of the author of the web pages. The duplication or utilisation of such graphics, audio files, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without the express consent of the author.


4. Legal effectiveness of this exclusion of liabilty

This exclusion of liability is to be regarded as an integral part of the website, which carries a link to this page. Insofar as any parts or individual wordings of this text do not, or not completely, or no longer, conform to the current legal situation, this shall not affect the content and validity of the remaining parts of the document.
