Content of Website offerings
The author does not assume any responsibility for the up-to-datedness, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims against the author that refer to damage of a material or immaterial nature, which were caused by the use or non-use of the information provided or by the use of incorrect and incomplete information, are excluded, unless the author proves intentional or gross negligence is at hand. All offers are subject to change and are non-binding. The author expressly reserves the right to change, supplement or delete parts of the pages or the entire offering without prior notice or to stop publication temporarily or permanently.
Referrals and links
In case of direct or indirect referrals to third party Websites (“hyperlinks”), for which the author is not responsible, the author may only be held liable in the event that he had knowledge of the content and possessed the technical means to reasonably stop the use of any illegal content. The author hereby expressly declares that at the time when the links were created, no illegal content was identifiable on the linked pages. The author has no influence on the current or future design, content or authorship of the linked pages. The author thus expressly dissociates himself from all content on the linked/connected pages, which were changed after the respective link was created. This statement applies to all links and referrals from the author’s own Website as well as entries by third parties in any guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists setup by the author. In case of illegal, incorrect or incomplete content and in particular if any damage occurs as a result of the use or non-use of information of this kind, the publisher of the page to which a referral is made is solely liable and not the one who is merely referred to the publication via a respective link.
Copyright and trademark law
The author strives to comply with copyrights relating to all graphics, audio documents, video clips and text used in all publications and to use graphics, audio documents, video clips and text that the author has produced himself or to use graphics, audio documents, video clips and text that are in the public domain. All mentioned trademarks, which in some cases are protected by third parties, are subject without limitation to the provision of applicable trademark legislation and the ownership rights of the respective registered owners. Merely mentioning something is not sufficient to conclude that the trademarks are not protected by third party rights. The copyright for published items the author has created himself remains the sole property of the author of the pages. Duplication or use of such graphics, audio documents, video clips and texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without the express permission of the author.
