1. Content of online offer
The author does not assume any liability concerning the topicality, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Any liability claims against the author, which refer to material or non-material damage, and which may be caused by the usage or non-usage of the information provided or, respectively, by the usage of any incorrect or incomplete information, is generally excluded unless in cases of proven willful or gross negligence on the author’s part.
All offers are non-binding and without obligation. The author expressly reserves the right to modifications, amendments, or cancellations of the offer, in whole or in part, or to the temporary or final discontinuation of this publication without any prior notice.
2. References and Links
Where direct or indirect references to other websites (‘hyperlinks’) which lie beyond the sphere of responsibility of the author are concerned, an obligation to assume liability would take effect exclusively in the case of the author having knowledge of the content, and it having been technically feasible and reasonable for him to have prevented its use in the case of it having unlawful content.
The author herewith explicitly declares that at the time of setting the link, no unlawful content could be detected on the pages linked. The author shall have no influence whatsoever on the current and future creative design, contents or copyright of the linked pages. He therefore explicitly disassociates himself herewith from all of the content of all the linked pages that have been changed after setting the links.This statement shall be valid for all the links and references set within the scope of the author’s own Internet offer and also for entries by third persons in the guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists set up by the author and in all other forms of databases where external input on the content is possible. The author, who simply provided the links to the respective publications, is not liable for any and all illegal, erroneous, or incomplete content and especially for damages, which might occur due to the usage or non-usage of such information provided, but rather the author of the respective pages is liable for all content and results thereof.
3. Copyrights and trademark rights
The author endeavours to observe the copyrights of the images, graphs, audio and video files and files/sequences and texts in all the publications, to use his own images, graphs, audio and video files/sequences and texts, or to revert to graphs, audio and video files/sequences and texts requiring no license.
All the trademarks named in the Internet offer and, where applicable, those protected by third persons, are subject without restriction to the legal provisions of the respectively valid right to protected identification/trademarks and the rights of ownership of the respective registered owners. The fact that a trademark has merely been named shall not imply that trademarks are not protected by the rights of third persons.
The copyright for any published items produced by the author himself shall remain solely with the author of these pages.Duplication or utilisation of such graphs, audio and video files/sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications shall be prohibited unless the author has granted his explicit consent.
4. Protection of privacy
If the internet offer permits the entry of personal or business data (e-mail addresses, names, postal addresses), the surrender of the data by the user is made explicitly on a voluntary basis. The use and payment of all offered services are permitted – if and as far as is technically possible and reasonable – without specification of any personal data or under specification of anonymous data or an alias. The use of contact data such as postal addresses, telephone or fax numbers or email addresses or other comparable data published in the imprint or otherwise by third parties for the purpose of sending not expressly requested information is prohibited. The right to take legal action against the senders of such so-called ‘spam emails’ shall be reserved in the event of any infringements of this ban.
