Datenschutz / Haftungsausschluss

1. Content of the online presentation:

The author assumes no liability whatsoever for the quality of the information provided or for it being up-to-date and comprehensive. Liability claims against the author based on material or non-material damages caused by the utilisation or non-utilisation of the information provided or the utilisation of erroneous and incomplete information are fundamentally excluded to the extent that it cannot be demonstrated that the author acted in a wilful or grossly negligent manner.
All proposals are subject to change and are not binding. The author expressly reserves the right to without separate notice change, modify, supplement or delete the site in part or in its entirety or to cease publication temporarily or permanently.

2. References and links:

Where direct or indirect links ("hyperlinks") point to external Web pages that lie beyond the author's scope of responsibility are concerned, a duty of liability would only obtain in such cases where the author was aware of the contents and it were possible and reasonable for the author to prevent utilisation in the event of contents being unlawful.
The author herewith expressly declares that at the time the links were made no illegal contents were apparent on the pages to which such links point. The author is not able to influence the current and future layout, contents or authorship of the pages to which links point. Therefore the author herewith expressly distances himself from all contents on pages to which links point whose content was modified after the links were created. This statement also applies to all links and references made within the author's own Internet presentation and for external entries in guest books, discussion forums, link lists, mailing lists and all other types of databases set up by the author and where external write access to the contents is possible.  The provider of the page to which a link points is exclusively responsible for illegal, erroneous or incomplete contents and in particular for losses arising out of the utilisation or non-utilisation of such information presented and not the person who only references the respective publication via links.

3. Copyright and trademark law:

In all publications, the author has attempted to observe the copyrights for the images, graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts used and to use images, graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts the author has produced himself and to use licence-free graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts.
All the brands and trademarks mentioned within the Internet presentation and possibly protected by third parties are unreservedly subject to the provisions of the respectively applicable trademark law and ownership rights of the respective registered owners. The conclusion may not be drawn that brand marks are not protected by third party rights just because they have been used here!
The copyright for published objects created by the author himself remains solely with the author of the pages. The duplication or utilisation of such graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without express permission from the author.

4. Data protection:

Insofar as the Internet presentation makes it possible to enter personal or business details (email addresses, names, addresses), such details will be provided by the user exclusively on a voluntary basis. The utilisation and payment of all offered services is – insofar as technically possible and reasonable – also permitted without the provision of such data or with the provision of anonymised data or a pseudonym. The use of the contact data provided within the framework of this legal notice or comparable information, such as postal addresses, telephone and fax numbers and email addresses by third parties for the provision of information not expressly requested is not permitted. Legal action against the senders of so-called spam mail is expressly reserved in the event of violations against this ban.


5. Legal effectiveness of the liability exclusion:

This liability exclusion must be regarded as part of the Internet presentation containing links which point to this page. Insofar as parts or individual wordings of this text do not, no longer or do not fully correspond to the existing legal situation, the content and validity of other parts of the document will remain unaffected by this.
