Contents of the Online Offer
The author does not warrant in any way that the information provided is up to date, correct, complete or of a particular quality. Liability claims against the author based on material or ideal damages caused by use or non-use of the information presented or through the use of erroneous or incomplete information are excluded in principle insofar as no intentional or grossly negligent fault can be established on the part of the author. All offers are subject to change and are non-binding. The author expressly reserves the right to change, supplement, delete or discontinue publication of parts of these pages or of the entire offer temporarily or permanently without separate announcement.
References and Links
With direct or indirect references to third party internet pages (“links”) which lie outside the author’s sphere of responsibility, a liability obligation would take effect only in the case that the author had knowledge of the contents of these links, that these contents were unlawful, that it was technically possible for the author to prevent usage of these contents, and that it was not unreasonable for him to do so. Hence the author declares expressly that when these links were set the corresponding linked pages were free of unlawful contents. However, the author has no influence whatsoever on the current and future design and contents of the linked pages. Hence he herewith expressly distances himself from all contents of all linked pages that have been changed since the link was set. This applies to all links and references set within the author’s own internet offer and to all third party entries in guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists installed by the author. Only the provider of the pages to which a link is set, and not the persons who only refer to this publication through links, is liable for unlawful, erroneous and incomplete contents, and particularly for any damages that arise from using or not using such unlawful, erroneous or incomplete contents.
Copyright and Trademark Law
The author endeavours in all of his publications to respect the copyrights of the graphics, audio files, video sequences and texts that are used, or to use graphics, audio files, video sequences and texts created by the author himself, or to fall back on graphics, audio files, video sequences and texts which are in the public domain. All brands and trademarks that are used within the internet offer and which are possibly protected by third parties are subject without restriction to the provisions of the applicable trademark law and to the possession rights of the registered owners. The mere fact that a brand or trademark is identified does not allow the inference that it is not protected through the rights of third parties! The copyright for objects that have been created by the author himself and published lies solely with the author. Such graphics, audio files, video sequences and texts may not be reproduced in other electronic or printed publications without the author’s explicit written consent.

Use by third parties of contact data published in this section, as well as use of similar data such as postal addresses, telephone numbers, fax numbers and email addresses for the purpose of sending information that has not been requested, is not allowed. We reserve the right to take legal steps against the senders of so-called spam emails if they violate this prohibition.
