1. Content of on-line offer
The author does not give any guaranty for the topicality, correctness, completeness or quality of the information made available. Liability claims against the author relating to loss of a material or intangible nature, which shall have been caused by use or failure to use the information presented, or as a result of use of incorrect and incomplete information, are in principle excluded, unless there shall be willful or grossly negligent misconduct, as may be proved, on the part of the author.
2. References and links
Liability for loss shall only arise in respect of direct or indirect references to websites of third parties (hyperlinks) which lie outside the area of responsibility of the author, where the author shall have had knowledge of the content and, in the event of illegal content, it shall have been technically possible and reasonable to prevent use. The author hereby expressly declares that no illegal contents were recognizable on the site to be linked at the time of setting the link. The author has no influence on the current and future layout, contents or copyright of the linked / associated sites. Therefore, he expressly dissociates himself from all contents of all linked / associated sites which have been altered after the link was set. This declaration applies to all links and references set within the own Internet offer, as well as for entries made by third parties in the visitors’ books, discussions forums, tables of links, mailing lists and in all other forms of data banks installed by the author, to the contents of which external access is possible. Solely the supplier of the site to which reference was made shall be liable for illegal, incorrect or incomplete contents, and more particularly, for loss which shall arise from use or non-use of such types of information offered, and not the person who simply gives a reference to the particular publication via links.
3. Copyrights and rights over identification marks
The author does endeavor to respect copyright in the illustrations, diagrams, sound documents, video sequences and texts in all publications, to use illustrations, diagrams, sound documents, video sequences and texts prepared by himself, or make use of diagrams, sound documents, video sequences and texts which are free of licensing rights.
All specified, and where applicable, proprietary names and trademarks within the Internet offer and protected for third persons are subject without limitation to the terms of the particular industrial property right currently valid and the rights of ownership of the particular registered owner. It may not be inferred alone by reason of mere naming, that marks are not protected by third party rights.
Copyright in published items created by the author himself, remains with the author. Duplication or use of such diagrams, 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
Disclosure of data on the part of the user is made on an expressly voluntary basis, to the extent that the possibility exists for entering personal or business data (e-mail addresses, names, postal addresses) within the Internet offer. Use and payment of all services offered is also permitted without input of such data or on stating anonymous data or a pseudonym (to the extent technically possible and reasonable). Use of the published contact data within the scope of the printer © TM imprint or similar particulars, such as postal addresses, telephone and facsimile numbers as well as e-mail addresses of third parties, for transmission of information not expressly requested, is not permitted. Legal action against senders of so-called spam mail is expressly reserved on contravention of this prohibition.
5. Legal validity of this exclusion of liability
This exclusion of liability is to be considered as a part of the Internet offer, from which reference has been made to this site. The remaining parts of the document are not affected with regard to their content and their validity, unless parts or individual wording of this text shall not, no longer, or not fully correspond with the current legal position.
