Legal notice / exclusion of liability

Content of the online presence

The author offers no guarantee for the up-to-dateness, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims against the author related to damages of a material or non-material nature which were caused by the use or failure to use the offered information or through the use of erroneous and incomplete information are principally ruled out insofar as no verifiably intentional or grossly negligent culpability on the part of the author exists. All offers are without obligation and non-binding. The author expressly reserves the right to change, supplement, or delete parts of the pages or the entire presence without a separate announcement or to discontinue the publication temporarily or permanently.

References and links

In the case of direct or indirect links to third-party Internet pages which lie outside author's sphere of influence, a liability obligation would come into force exclusively in cases where the author was knowledgeable of the content and would have been technically and reasonably capable of preventing the consumption in cases of illicit content. Therefore the author expressly declares that, at the time the links were created, the corresponding linked pages were free of illegal content. The author has no influence at all on the current and future design and content of the linked pages. For that reason the author distances himself expressly from all content of all linked pages, which were changed after the links were created. This statement applies to all links and references created within the author's own Internet presence as well as to third-party entries in any guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists set up by the author. For any illegal, erroneous or incomplete content and in particular for any damages arising from the use or non-use of such kinds of offered information only the provider of the page to which reference was made shall be liable, and not the person who merely uses the links to reference the respective publication.

Copyright and trademark law

The author strives to observe the copyright of the graphics, audio files, video sequences and texts in all publications, to use graphics, audio files, video sequences and texts the author has created himself, or to make use of license-free graphics, audio files, video sequences and texts. All of the logos and trademarks named in the Internet presence and which are possibly protected by third parties are subject without restriction to the provisions of the respectively valid trademark law and the ownership rights of the respective registered owner. It should not be assumed that mere naming of trademarks means that they are not subject to protection by the rights of third parties! The copyright for published objects which the author himself created remains solely with the author of the pages. The reproduction or use of such graphics, audio files, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without express authorization of the author.
