1. Consent of the Online Website
The author provides no guarantees whatsoever for the currentness, correctness, completeness or quality of the supplied information. Liability claims against the author that refer to damages of a material or an immaterial nature, which have been caused through the usage or the non-usage of the supplied information and/or through the usage of flawed and incomplete information, shall in principle be excluded insofar as the author has committed no intentional wrongdoing or gross negligence against documentation. All offers shall be considered to non-binding and without obligation. The author expressly reserves the right, without special advance notice, to modify, supplement or delete sections of the website or the entire website or to discontinue the publication of the website, temporarily or permanently.
2. References and Links
With regards to direct or indirect references to third-party Internet sites (“Links”) which are out of the author’s control, a liability obligation would be applicable exclusively in the case in which the author has knowledge of the contents and it would be technically possible and reasonable for him to prevent the usage in the case of illegal contents. The author hereby expressly declares that, at the time that the link was placed, no illegal contents were recognizable on the pages to be linked. The author has no control whatsoever over the current and future layout, the contents or the authorship of the linked/connected webpages. Thus, he hereby expressly distances himself from all contents of all linked/connected webpages which have been altered after the respective link was placed. This provision shall also be valid for all links and references placed within our own Internet site as well as for third-party entries in the guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists that have been set up by the author. For illegal, flawed or incomplete contents and particularly for damages which are created from the usage or the non-usage of such supplied information, solely the provider of the webpage shall be liable to which reference has been made–not that provider who merely refers to the respective publication via links.
3. Copyright and Trademark Law
The author shall endeavour, in all publications, to respect the copyrights for the graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts used, to use self-created graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts or to utilise licence-free graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts. All trademarks and brand names mentioned within the Internet site and, where applicable, any trademarks and brand names that are protected by third-party rights, shall be subject in unrestricted fashion to the provisions of the respectively valid trademark law and the ownership rights of the respectively registered owners. Merely owing to the mere mention thereof, one should not draw the conclusion that trademarks are not protected by third-party rights! The copyright for published objects created by the author himself shall continue to be held by the author of the webpages. Any reproduction or usage of such graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications shall not be permitted without the author’s express consent.
4. Data Protection
Insofar as the option exists within the Internet site to enter personal or company data (e-mail addresses, names, postal addresses), then the disclosure of these data by the user shall be done upon an expressly voluntary basis. Insofar as this is technically possible and reasonable, the utilisation of and payment for all offered services shall be permitted even without providing such data and/or subject to the provision of anonymised data or a pseudonym.
5. Legal Validity of This Liability Exclusion
This liability exclusion should be regarded as being a component of the Internet site from which reference was made to this webpage. Insofar as sections or individual formulations of this text should not, no longer or not completely correspond to the valid legal situation, the rest of the sections of the document as a whole shall remain unaffected in their content and their validity.
