Content of the online presence
The author shall assume no liability for the topicality, correctness or quality of the information provided. Claims for liability against author which are based upon damage of a material or immaterial type, caused through the use or non-use of the information represented or through the use of incorrect or incomplete information, shall be fundamentally excluded provided it cannot be proved that the author acted with intent and/or was grossly negligent. All offers are without engagement and non-binding. The author expressly reserves the right to modify, supplement or delete sections of the pages or the entire offer without specific notification or to suspend publication temporarily or entirely.
References and links
Liability in the case of direct or indirect references to third-party web pages (links), outside the area of responsibility of the author, may only be derived when the author has knowledge of the content and when it would be technically possible and reasonable to prevent a use of any illegal content. Therefore, the author declares expressly that at the time of setting-up the links no illegal content on the pages to be linked was recognizable. The author has no influence whatsoever on the current and future design, content or copyright status of the linked pages. He/She, therefore, distance him/herself expressly from any content on the linked pages that was/has been modified since the links were set-up. This statement applies to all links and references set-up by the author within own internet presence as well as to all third-party entries in guest books, discussion forums, link directories, mailing lists and any other types of database to whose content written access is possible from external sources. The provider of the page to which reference is made shall be solely liable for any illegal, incorrect or incomplete content and, in particular, for any damage ensuing from a use or non-use of such types of information represented and not that party that merely makes reference to respective publications via links.
Copyrights and trademark rights
In all publications the author shall endeavor to observe the copyrights associated with the graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts used, to utilize graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts prepared by author him/herself or to fall back on graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts that are license-free. All brands and trademarks mentioned within the internet presence and possibly protected by third parties shall be unlimitedly subject to the provisions of the currently valid trademark legislation and the ownership rights of the respectively registered owner. It may not be concluded from a simple mention that trademarks are not protected by third-party rights! The copyright for published objects, furnished by author him/herself, shall remain solely with the author of the pages. Any duplication or utilization of such graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications shall not be permissible without the express consent of the author.
Should there be the possibility of entering personal or commercial data within the internet presence (e-mail addresses, names, addresses), then such divulgence on the part of the user shall be on an expressly voluntary basis. The utilization and payment of services on offer is – as far as technically possible and reasonable – allowed without the disclosure of such data or through the use of anonymous details or a pseudonym. It is forbidden for third parties to use contact data published within the scope of the Imprint or similar data such as postal address, telephone numbers, fax numbers and e-mail addresses for the sending of any non-explicitly demanded information. We expressly reserve the right to take legal proceedings against the senders of so-called spam mails in the case of any infringements of this prohibition.
Legal validity of the disclaimer
This disclaimer of liability is to be regarded as a part of the internet presence to which reference has been made on this page. Should parts or individual formulations in this text not, no longer or not fully be compatible with current legislation, the remaining parts of the document shall remain unaffected by this in their content and validity.
