1. On-Line Contents
The author reserves the right to decline responsibility for the topicality, correctness, completeness, or quality of the information provided. Liability claims made against the author regarding material and non-material damage caused by the use or the non-use of any information provided or by the use of any kind of information which is incomplete or incorrect will therefore be rejected provided that it is through no proven intentional or grossly negligent fault made by the author.
All offers are not binding and without obligation. The author reserves the explicit right to change, extend or delete parts of the pages or the complete offer without a separate announcement and to cease the publication thereof either at times or permanently.
2. Referrals and Links
For direct or indirect referrals to other Internet pages ("Links") not lying within the author's area of responsibility, a liability commitment would only come into force if the author has knowledge of the contents and it is technically possible and reasonable for him to prevent the use of illegal contents.
The author therefore declares explicit that when linked the corresponding linked pages were free from illegal contents. The author has no influence on the present and future design and on the contents of the linked / connected pages. He therefore explicit dissociates himself from all contents of the linked / connected pages which have been changed after they have been linked. This observation applies to all links and referrals within his own Internet publication as well as postings and messages published in guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists provided by the author. Only the provider of the page referred to is responsible for illegal, incorrect, or incomplete contents and especially for damage caused by the use or non-use of such information provided. This is not the responsibility of the person who merely refers to the respective publication by the use of links.
The author endeavours to comply with the copyrights of the graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts, to use graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts produced by himself and to fall back on licence-free graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts.
All brand names and trademarks named within the Internet publication and, if applicable, protected by a third party are totally subject to the regulations of the applicable trademark law and the proprietary rights of the respective registered owners. The conclusion should not be drawn that brand names are not protected by the rights of third parties just because they are merely named.
The copyright for published objects created by the author himself is reserved for the author. Duplication or use of such graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without the author's explicit agreement.
