The author assumes no warranty for the accuracy, correctness and completeness or quality of the contents of the provided information. Liability claims against the author which relate to tangible or imaginary types of damages which are caused by the use or disuse of the featured information or from the use of defective and incomplete information, are strictly excluded provided no verifiable intentional or rough negligent blame is existent on the part of the author. All offers are subject to changes without notice and are non-binding. The author reserves the rights explicitly to periodically alter, extend, delete, publicise or conclusively adjust the contents.

2. References and Links 

With direct or indirect links to external websites (“Hyperlinks”), which are outside the author’s field of responsibility, of which the author has knowledge of the contents and it is technically and reasonably possible for him to prevent the use in the event of unlawful contents, a liability commitment would come into force exclusively.

The author hereby explicitly declares that at the time of the link positioning no illegal contents on the linked sites was recognisable. The author has no influence on the current and future configuration of the contents or the authorship of the linked sites. Therefore he emphatically distances himself from all contents in all linked sites which are altered after the link setting. This declaration is valid for all set links and references within his own internet offers and references as well as for external entries in guest books, discussion forums, link registers, mailing lists and all other forms of data banks established by the author where external writing access in the contents is possible. For illegal, faulty or incomplete contents and especially for damages which arise from the use or disuse of such featured information, the provider of the site referred to is liable, not he who is merely referred to the site via links on a particular publication.

The author endeavours in all publications to observe the use of the copyrights of the used graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts, graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts which he himself has constructed or to revert to license free graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts. All third party protected marks and trademarks named within the internet offer are liable to unrestrained regulations under the respective valid registration rights and the ownership rights of the respective registered owner. Alone by reason of merely naming them does not draw the conclusion that trademarks are not  protected by the rights of third parties! The copyright remains with the author of the sites for publications created by the author himself. Any duplication of such graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts in other electronic of printed publications is not permitted without explicit authorisation from the author.

4. Legal Effects of this Disclaimer 

In case parts or individual phrasing of these texts do not, no longer, or do not entirely correspond to the prevailing legal status, then the remaining parts of the document thereby remain unaffected in their content and validity.
