1. Content of the web offering

The author accepts no liability for the currentness, accuracy, completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims against the author for material or non-material damages occurring as a result of the use or non-use of the information provided and/or the use of erroneous and incomplete information are explicitly excluded unless it can be proven that the author acted with harmful intent or gross negligence. All offerings are free of obligation and non-binding. The author explicitly reserves the right to alter, supplement or delete the offering in parts or in its entirety without prior notice, or to cease publication temporarily or permanently.

2. References and links

Where there are direct or indirect references to external internet pages (‘links’) that remain outside the author’s sphere of responsibility, any liability would only ever apply where the author has knowledge of the content and it would be technically possible and reasonable for him/her to prevent its use in the case of illegal content. The author therefore explicitly declares that at the time the links were put in place, the pages in question were free of illegal content. The author has no influence over the current or future design, content or intellectual property rights of the linked/referenced pages. He/she therefore explicitly distances him/herself from all content on any linked/referenced pages that changed after the link was put in place. This disclaimer applies to all links and references within the author’s own web offering as well as to all external entries in guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists set up by the author. Liability for any illegal, erroneous or incomplete content and particularly damages resulting from the use or non-use of said content rests exclusively with the owner of the hyperlinked website, and not with whoever links to said content.

3. Copyright and trademarks

In all publications, the author makes every effort to observe the intellectual property rights of the graphics, audio files, video sequences and texts used; to make use of graphics, audio files, video sequences and texts created by him/herself; or to access license-free graphics, audio files, video sequences and texts. All brands and trade names referred to within the web offering and potentially protected by third party copyright are unreservedly subject to the provisions of the applicable trademark law and ownership rights of the respective registered owners. A mere mention does not imply that the trademarks are not protected by the rights of third parties! The copyright for any published content created by the author remains the exclusive property of the site’s author. Any reproduction or use of such graphics, audio files, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications is prohibited without the author’s explicit consent.

4. Data protection

Whenever the web offering enables the user to enter personal or business data (email addresses, names, postal addresses, etc.), the user shares such information explicitly on a voluntary basis. As far as technically possible and reasonable, all offered services can also be used without having to share any data or when sharing anonymized data.

5. No warning notice without prior contact

Should the content or the presentation of these web pages infringe the rights of third parties or legal provisions, this is not intentional. In this case, we ask for appropriate notification without charge. We promise to remove justly contested content immediately, without you having to involve legal counsel. Any costs incurred by you without prior contact will be rejected, and we reserve the right to file a counter-claim for violation of said provisions.

6. Legal validity of this liability disclaimer

This liability disclaimer is to be considered part of the web offering from which a link was provided to this page. Insofar as parts or individual formulations of this text do not, no longer, or not fully comply with current legislation, the content and validity of the remaining parts of this document will not be affected.
