1. Content of the online publication
The author assumes no liability for the current validity, accuracy, completeness or quality of the information provided. The author cannot be held liable for any damage or loss of a material or non-material nature resulting from the use or non-use of the information provided, or from the use of incorrect or incomplete information, except in the case of demonstrable intent and/or gross negligence on the part of the author.
All content is without obligation and non-binding. The author expressly reserves the right to modify, supplement or delete parts of the site or the entire web offering without separate notification, or to stop publication thereof temporarily or permanently.
2. References and links
In the event of direct or indirect links to external websites (hyperlinks) that are outside the scope of responsibility of the author, liability cannot be accepted unless the author had knowledge of the external content and it would be technically possible and reasonable for the author to prevent the use thereof in the case of illegal content.
The author hereby expressly states that no illegal content was apparent on the corresponding linked pages at the time the links were established. The author has no influence whatsoever on the current or future design, the content or the authorship of the websites to which links are provided. For this reason, the author explicitly dissociates itself from the content of all linked sites that were modified after the links were established. The same applies to all links and references within the author’s own internet content, as well as entries by third parties in guest books, discussion forums, link directories, mailing lists and in all other forms of databases to which write access by external users is possible. Liability for illegal, incorrect or incomplete content and in particular for damage or loss resulting from the use or non-use of such information is solely the responsibility of the provider of the site to which reference was made, not the author who merely refers to the respective publication via links.
3. Copyright and trademark law
The author takes care to respect any copyright pertaining to images, graphics, audio, video and text used; to use images, graphics, audio, video and text created by the author; or to use licence-free graphics, audio, video and text in all publications. All brands and trademarks named in the internet publication that may be protected by third parties are, without exception, subject to the provisions of the applicable trademark law and of the laws upholding proprietary rights of the corresponding registered owners. The mere listing of a given brand name without reference to its proprietary status does not imply that it is not protected by third party rights. The copyright to material created and published by the author of the pages lies solely with the author. Reproduction or use of this material, i.e. graphics, audio, video and text, in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without the express written permission of the author.
4. Data protection
Insofar as the website makes it possible to provide personal or business information (e-mail addresses, names, postal addresses etc), divulgence of such data on the part of the user shall occur on an expressly voluntary basis. To the extent that it is technically feasible and reasonable, the use and purchase of all offered services is also allowed without the input of such data or alternatively with the input of anonymous data or a pseudonym. Information provided by the author in the Contact or Legal (Impressum) sections of the site such as postal addresses, telephone and fax numbers and e-mail addresses may not be used by third parties for the transmission of information that has not been explicitly requested. The author reserves the right to take legal action against the senders of so-called spam mail.
5. Legal validity of this disclaimer
This disclaimer is to be considered an integral part of the internet publication in which it appears. Should any parts of or wording within this text not comply or cease to comply either in part or in full with the applicable law, the content and validity of the remaining sections of the document shall remain unaffected.
