1. Contents of the online offer
The author does not guarantee the topicality, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims regarding material or immaterial damage caused by the use or non-use of any information provided, including any kind of information, which is incomplete or incorrect, will therefore be rejected unless the author’s deliberate or grossly negligent fault can be proven. All offers are without obligation and unbinding. The author explicitly reserves his right to modify parts of his web pages or the whole Internet presence, to extend, to delete or to suspend or cease his publication without separate announcement.


2. Referrals and links
In case of direct or indirect cross references (“links”) to third parties’ Internet presences that are not part of the author’s responsibilities, a warranty obligation would exist solely if the author knew the content of those web pages and if he had the technical possibilities to reasonably prevent the use of those web pages in case of illegal contents. The author explicitly declares that no illegal contents could be observed on the linked web pages at the moment when the link was established on the author’s web pages. However, the author does not have any influence on the current and future design, the contents or the authorship of the linked pages. Therefore, he herewith explicitly distances himself from all contents of the linked pages that have been modified after linking. This statement is valid for all links and referrals included in the author’s own web pages as well as for third parties’ entries in guest books, discussion boards and mailing lists provided on the author’s page. It is solely the author of the linked Internet page and not the one who has simply made the link to these pages, who is responsible for illegal, faulty or incomplete contents, above all for damages arising from the use or non-use of thus proffered information.


3. Copyright
The author intended to respect existing copyrights throughout his complete publication. Any brands or trade marks mentioned on the author’s web presence are subject to the regulations of the respective trade mark law and to the proprietary rights of the respective registered brand owners. Solely the fact that brand names are mentioned does not justify the assumption that those brand names are not subject to brand protection! The author’s own material is also protected by copyright held by the author. Prior written consent of the author must be obtained for the duplication and/or the use of objects such as graphs, sound documents, videos and texts in other electronic or printed publications.


4. Legal validity of this disclaimer
This disclaimer is to be regarded as part of the Internet publication from which you were referred. If sections or individual terms of this statement are not or not completely legally valid or correct, the content or validity of the other parts remain uninfluenced by this fact.
