1. Content of the web site
The author cannot accept any liability for the up-to-date, correct or complete nature of the information presented, nor for its quality. Liability claims against the author based on material or immaterial damage or losses due to the use or non-use of the information presented and/or the use of faulty and incomplete information, are excluded as a matter of principle unless the author can be proved guilty of wilful intent or gross negligence. All offers made are subject to change and without obligation. The author explicitly reserves the right to change, delete or temporarily or permanently suspend publication of some or all pages without special notice.
2. Cross-references and links
In the case of direct or indirect references to third-party web sites ("hyperlinks") outside the author's sphere of responsibility, liability would exclusively apply in the event that the author was aware of the contents and could, technically and reasonably, have prevented their use if the content were unlawful. The author herewith explicitly declares that illegal content was not identifiable on the linked pages at the time of setting the links. The author has no influence whatsoever on the current and future layout, contents and copyright of the linked / referenced pages. For this reason, he herewith explicitly disclaims all responsibility for any content on the linked / referenced pages which was changed after setting the link. This disclaimer applies for all links and references set within the author's own Internet offering, as well as for third-party entries in guest books set up by the author, forums for discussion, link indexes, mailing lists and all other types of database in which content can be overwritten externally. Liability for illegal, faulty or incomplete content and particularly for damage or losses attributable to the use or non-use of information presented in such a way rests exclusively with the provider of the linked page, but not with the party referring to the publication via links.
3. Copyright and trademark law
In all publications, the author has made every effort not to infringe the copyright of the images, diagrams, audio documents, video sequences and texts used; to use images, diagrams, audio documents, video sequences and texts generated by the author himself or to make use of royalty-free diagrams, audio documents, video sequences and texts. All brand names and trademarks used within the web site and possibly protected by third parties are governed, without restriction, by the provisions of the applicable trademark laws and the ownership rights of their respective registered holders. Just because a trademark is mentioned does not mean that it is not protected by third-party rights! Copyright for published items which have been created by the author personally remains solely with the author of the pages. Duplication or use of such diagrams, audio documents, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without the author's explicit consent.
Insofar as personal or business data (email addresses, names, addresses) can be entered anywhere on this web site, such data are explicitly disclosed by the user on a voluntary basis. Where technically possible and reasonable, all the services offered can also be used and paid for without disclosing such data or by entering anonymized data or a pseudonym. Third-party use of contact data published within the framework of the publication data or comparable details, such as the postal address, telephone and fax numbers or email address, for the purpose of sending information which has not explicitly been requested is prohibited. We explicitly reserve the right to take legal action against the senders of so-called spam mail in violation of this ban.
