The author accepts no liability for the quality of the information provided or for it being correct, complete or up to date. Liability claims against the author concerning either material or intellectual damage or other detrimental results resulting from the use or non-use of any information provided, including any information that is either incomplete or incorrect, will therefore be rejected unless either deliberate or gross negligence on the part of the author can be proven.

2. References and links

The author can only be held liable for either direct or indirect referrals to other Internet sites (links) for which the author is not directly responsible if the author is aware of the content of the sites in question and if the author is in a position to, and has the technical capacity to, prevent the use of illegal contents.
Herewith the author expressly explains that at the time of the link settlement the suitable verlinkten sides were freely from unlawful contents. The author has no influence over the current or future form, content or authorship of the linked websites and therefore hereby explicitly disassociates himself from all content on all of the linked websites which has been amended subsequent to the incorporation of the links on this website. This statement is valid for all links and references within the web site created by the author as well as for links and references from third parties in guestbooks, discussion forums, lists of links, mailing lists and in all other forms of databases to which external write access is possible. For illegal, incorrect or incomplete content and particularly for damage that occurs as a result of the use or disuse of information presented in this way, only the contractor of the site may be liable not the person who has merely provided the links.

In all publications the author has made every effort to observe copyright laws concerning all graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts that have been employed; to use, wherever possible, the author’s own graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts; or to employ graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts that are in the public domain.
All trade and brand marks that appear in the author’s Internet content and are protected by third parties are subject in full to the terms of the relevant copyright law and the right of ownership as applied to the registered owner in each case.
