1. Content of the online offer
The author cannot give any guarantee regarding the topicality, correctness,
completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims
against the author based on material or immaterial losses resulting from
using or failing to use the information provided or from the use of incorrect
or incomplete information are excluded as a matter of principle unless
it is proven that the author acted intentionally or with gross negligence.
All offers are subject to confirmation and are non-binding. The author
expressly reserves the right to alter, supplement or delete parts of the
pages or the entire offer without prior separate announcement, or to discontinue
the publication temporarily or finally.
2. References and links
In the case of direct or indirect references to third-party websites ("hyperlinks")
which are outside the authors scope of responsibility, liability
would be incurred solely in the event that the author had knowledge of
the contents and if it would have been technically possible and reasonable
for him to prevent the use of the illegal content.
The author hereby expressly declares that, at the time of placing a link,
no illegal contents could be found on the sites to be linked. The author
has no influence on the current and future design, content or copyright
of the linked sites. He therefore hereby expressly distances himself from
all the contents of all the linked sites which are altered after the link
has been placed. This statement applies to all the links placed within
his own internet offering, to references and entries by third parties
in guest books, discussion fora and mailing lists created by the author.
Sole liability for illegal, faulty or incomplete contents, in particular
for losses resulting from using or failing to use information provided
in this way lies with the person offering the site to which the link is
made, and not with those who merely make reference to the publication
concerned by means of links.
3. Copyright and identification rights
The author is anxious to observe the copyrights in the graphic designs,
sound documents, video sequences and texts used in all the publications,
to use graphic designs, sound documents, video sequences and texts produced
by himself or to make use of graphic designs, sound documents, video sequences
and texts which are not subject to a licence.
All trade marks and brand names which are mentioned in the internet offering
and which are possibly protected for third parties are subject, without
restriction, to the provisions of the relevant identification law and
to the rights of possession of the registered owners in each case. It
cannot be concluded from their merely being mentioned that trade marks
are not protected by third-party rights!
The copyright in published objects which the author has created himself
remains exclusively with the author of the sites. Publication or use of
such graphic designs, sound documents, video sequences and texts in other
electronic or printed publications is not permissible without the authors
4. Data protection
Where the internet offering provides for the possibility of entering personal
or business data (e-mail addresses, names, addresses), the user expressly
discloses these data on a voluntary basis. Use of and payment for all
the services offered is also permitted without providing such data or
after the provision of anonymous data or a pseudonym - provided this is
technically possible and reasonable. Use by third parties of the contact
data published in the imprint or similar information, such as postal addresses,
telephone and fax numbers, and e-mail addresses, in order to send information
which has not been specifically requested is not permitted. The right
is specifically reserved to take legal action against anyone sending spam
mails, as they are called, in the event of any violation of this prohibition.
5. Legal validity of this disclaimer
This disclaimer forms part of the internet offering from which reference
to this page was made. If any parts of this text or individual phrases
are no longer or not entirely compatible with the applicable statutory
provisions, this shall not affect the content and validity of the other
