1. Content of the website

The author assumes no responsibility whatsoever for the correctness, accuracy, completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims against the author based upon material or non-material damages caused by the usage or non-usage of the information presented / by the usage of incorrect and incomplete information are generally excluded provided that no deliberate intent or gross negligence of fault can be proved on the part of the author. All offerings are subject to change and are non-binding. The author expressly reserves the right to change, enhance or delete parts of the pages or the entire offering without specific notification or to temporarily or permanently suspend the publication.

2. References and links

In the event of direct or indirect references to external websites (hyperlinks) which do not fall inside the scope of responsibility of the author, an obligation of liability would only come into force in the event that the author had knowledge of the content and that it would have been technically possible and reasonable for him to prevent the usage in the case of illegal contents. The author hereby expressly states that no illegal contents could be detected at the time when the links to the pages were established. The author has no influence whatsoever with regard to the current and future design, contents or authorship of the linked pages. For this reason, the author hereby expressly distances himself from all contents of all linked pages which have been changed after the links to the pages were established. This applies to all links and references within the company's own Internet site as well as to external entries in any guest books, discussion forums, link directories and mailing lists set up by the author as well as all other forms of databases that permit external input on the content. The sole liability with regard to illegal, incorrect or incomplete contents, in particular with regard to damages that occur as a result of the usage or non-usage of such presented information, rests with the provider of the linked site and not the person who solely provides a reference to the respective publication by means of links.

3. Copyright and trademark law

The author is committed to observe the copyright of the images, graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts used in all publications, to use images, graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts which he himself has compiled, or to use licence-free graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts. All brand names and trademarks mentioned on the website which are protected, including those which may be also protected through third parties, are entirely subject to the conditions of the respective valid trademark law and the ownership rights of the respective registered owner. The fact that a trademark has merely been mentioned shall not imply that trademarks are not protected by the rights of third persons. The copyright for published objects created by the author remains exclusively with the author of the pages. Any duplication or utilisation of such graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without the express consent of the author.

4. Data protection

In the event that there is the opportunity to enter personal or business data (e-mail addresses, names, addresses) on the website, then the disclosure of this data by the user is undertaken on an expressly voluntary basis. The utilisation and payment of all services offered is – as far as it is technically possible and reasonable – also permitted without the submission of such data / via the submission of anonymous data or a pseudonym. The utilisation of published contact data within the scope of the imprint or comparable data, such as postal addresses, telephone and fax numbers as well as e-mail addresses, by third parties for the purpose of sending unsolicited information is not permitted. We expressly reserve the right to take legal measures against the senders of so-called spam mails in violation of this prohibition.

In the event that parts or individual formulations of this text do not correspond or not completely correspond to the valid legal position, then the remaining parts of the document shall remain unaffected with regard to its content and its validity.
