1. Contents of the online offer
The author is not responsible for the contents of the information provided, i.e. he does not guarantee that this information is up-to-date, correct, complete nor is he responsible for its quality. Any claims towards the author concerning material or immaterial damage caused by use or non-use of the information provided or by the use of incorrect or incomplete information shall be excluded unless there is a case of deliberate action or gross negligence attributable to the author.
All offers are not binding and subject to modification. The author reserves the right to modify, supplement or delete part of the pages or the entire offer without separate notice or to stop publication temporarily or definitely.
2. Links and references
In case of direct or indirect references to external Internet pages ("links") which do not fall within the author's scope of responsibility, the author shall be held liable only if he has knowledge of the contents and if he can be expected to prevent the use of contents that are illegal and has the technical possibilities to do so.
The author explicitly states that no illegal contents could be recognized at the moment of the linking. The author does not have any influence on the future design, contents or copyrights of the linked pages. Therefore, he explicitly dissociates himself from all contents of the linked pages which are modified after the linking. This statement shall apply to all links and references made within his own Internet offer as well as to external entries in guestbooks, discussion groups and mailing lists set up by the author. Sole responsibility for illegal, incorrect or incomplete contents and in particular for damage resulting from use or non-use of information provided in this way shall be attributed to the provider of the page to which the reference was made and not to the person who simply makes a reference to the publication in question by means of a link.
3. Copyright and trademarks
The author endeavours to observe the copyrights of the graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts used in his publications, to use graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts prepared by himself or to make use of graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts requiring no licence. All trade marks referred to within the Internet offer which might be protected by a third party are, without any restrictions, subject to the provisions of the valid trade mark law and the proprietary rights of the registered proprietor. The simple fact that reference is made to a trademark does not imply the conclusion that the trademark is not protected by the rights of a third party.
The copyright for objects published and designed by the author himself shall remain exclusively with the author of the pages. Reproduction or use of such graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications shall not be permitted without the author's explicit consent.
4. Data protection
If there is the possibility to enter personal or business data (e-mail address, names, addresses) within the Internet offer, the disclosure of such data is made by the user on a voluntary basis. All services offered may also be used and paid for without the specification of such data or by specifying anonymous data or a pseudonym – if this is technically possible and acceptable.
5. Validity of this disclaimer
This disclaimer is to be regarded as part of the Internet offer from where the reference to this page was made. If parts of this text or individual phrases are not, no longer or not fully in agreement with the valid law, this shall have no effect on the contents and validity of the other parts.
