Online content

The author reserves the right not to take responsibility for the topicality, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims against the author, whether these be made on concrete or abstract grounds, arising from the use or disuse of the content or from the use of incorrect or incomplete information are categorically dismissed provided deliberate or gross negligence on the part of the author cannot be proved.

All offers are non-binding. The author expressly reserves the right to change, supplement or delete sections of the online content. Additionally, the author may change, supplement or delete an entire offer without prior notice, whether temporarily or permanently.

References and links

Where both direct and indirect links to external websites beyond the author’s responsibility are concerned, liability can only be assumed providing the author is aware of the contents, and only if it reasonably lies within the author’s technical capabilities to prevent the use of any illegal content.

The author hereby explicitly states that at the time that the links were embedded, no illicit content was recognized on the linked sites. The author does not have any influence whatsoever on the current or future design, contents or copyright of the linked sites, and thus expressly distances him-/herself from the content of all external websites that changes once the link has been embedded. This disclaimer applies to all links and references that are accessible via this website as well as to third-party entries in guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists made available by the author. Only the provider of the linked, external site can be held responsible for illegal, inaccurate or incomplete content, and in particular for the damages that arise from the use or disuse of information presented in this manner.

Copyright and trademark rights

The author has made every effort to either observe the copyright laws in all instances in which graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts are concerned; to employ graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts belonging to the author; or to make use of license-free graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts.

All trade- and brand marks that are named and, if applicable, protected by third parties on the website, are subject without restriction to the terms and conditions of valid trademark and possession rights of the respective registered owners. The mentioning of a trademark on this website should not lead to the conclusion that it is not protected by the rights of third parties.

The copyright for published material created by the author remains the property of the author. No graphics, audio documents, video sequences or texts are to be reproduced or used in other printed or electronic publications without the explicit permission of the author.

Data protection

In cases where the website offers the option of entering personal or business data (e-mail addresses, names, postal addresses), the user makes any disclosures on an expressly voluntary basis. The use and payment of all offered services – as far as it is technically possible and reasonable – can also proceed without specification of any personal data, or following the specification of anonymous data or a pseudonym. The use of the contact data (including e-mail addresses, postal addresses, telephone and fax numbers if applicable) by third parties for the transmission of not expressly requested information is not permitted. The author expressly reserves the right to take legal action against the senders of “spam” e-mails where this prohibition is breached.

Legal validity of this disclaimer

This disclaimer is to be viewed as part of the internet offer from which the user has been referred and to which this disclaimer refers. Should sections or individual terms of this disclaimer no longer be fully legal or correct, the content and validity of other sections and terms will remain unchanged.
