1. Contents of the website

The author accepts no responsibility for the information provided being up-to-date, correct, complete or of good quality. Liability claims against the author which relate to damages of a material or non-material character caused by the use of or failure to use the information presented or by the use of incorrect or incomplete information are impossible, unless there is verifiable wilful intent or gross negligence on the part of the author. All offers are non-binding and subject to change.

The author expressly reserves the right to change, add to, delete or temporarily or finally discontinue publication of parts of pages or the whole website without a separate announcement.

2. References and links

In the event of direct or indirect references to external web pages (so-called links) which are outside the author’s area of responsibility, a liability obligation would only enter into force in the event that the author has knowledge of the contents and it would be technically possible and feasible for him to prevent use in the event of illegal contents. Therefore, the author expressly declares that the corresponding linked pages were free from illegal contents at the time of the links being set. The author has no influence on the current and future design and on the contents of the linked pages. Therefore, he hereby expressly distances himself from all the contents of all the linked pages which were altered after the links were set. This statement applies to all links and references set within our own website, as well as to third party entries in guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists set up by the author. Only the provider of the page to which a link has been made shall be responsible for illegal, incorrect or incomplete contents and, in particular, for damages which arise from the use of or failure to use information presented in this way, not the person who merely refers to the publication in question via links.

3. Copyright and trademark law

The author endeavours, in all publications, to observe the copyrights of the graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts used, to use graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts which he has created himself or to fall back upon licence-free graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts. All the brands and trademarks mentioned within the website and, where applicable, protected by third parties are subject to the provisions of the current trademark law and the ownership rights of the respective registered owners without restriction. The mere mention of brands should not lead to the conclusion that they are not protected by the rights of a third party! The copyright for published objects which are created by the author himself shall be retained by the author of the web pages. A reproduction or use of such graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts in other electronic and printed publications is not permitted without the express consent of the author.

4. Data privacy

If there is the opportunity to enter personal or business data (e-mail addresses, names, addresses) within the website, this data shall be disclosed by the user on an expressly voluntary basis. The use of and payment for all the services offered is – as far as technically possible and feasible – also permitted without entering such data or with the entry of anonymised data or a pseudonym.

5. Legal validity of this disclaimer

This disclaimer must be regarded as part of the website from which a link has been made to this page. If parts or individual wordings of this text do not, no longer or do not completely correspond to the current legal situation, the remaining parts of the document shall remain unaffected in terms of their content and their validity.
