1. Content of the web site
The author accepts no liability for the information being up-to-date, accurate or complete or the quality of this information. Liability claims against the author relating to material or intellectual damages that were caused through the use or non-use of the information provided or through the use of erroneous and incomplete information are excluded if there is no evidence that the author acted with intent or gross negligence. All content is subject to change and non-binding. The author retains the exclusive right to change, supplement, delete or temporarily or permanently suspend publication of parts of the pages or the entire web site without any special notification.
2. References and links
For direct or indirect references to third-party web pages ("links") that lie outside of the author's area of responsibility, a liability obligation would only go into effect if the author was aware of the content and it was technically possible and reasonable to prevent use in the case of illegal content. The author thus expressly states that at the time the link was created, the linked pages were free of illegal content. The author has absolutely no influence on the current and future structure and on the content of the linked pages. Consequently, he hereby explicitly dissociates himself from the content of all linked pages that was changed after the link was created. This applies to all links and references created within his own web site and for third-party entries in the guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists set up by the author. For illegal, erroneous or incomplete content and especially for damages arising from the use or non-use of this type of information, the sole liability lies with the provider of the page to which the references were made and not to the individual who only references the links in published content.
3. Copyright and trademarks
The author strives to comply with copyright laws for the graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts used in all publications, when using the graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts he himself created or to use license-free graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts. All brand and trademarks protected by third-parties that are mentioned within the web site are unconditionally subject to the provisions of the valid trademark law and the ownership rights of the individual registered as the owner. It should not be concluded that just because a trademark is mentioned that it is not protected by the rights of third-parties! The copyright for published objects created by the author himself remains solely with the author of the pages. It is not permitted to copy or use these kinds of graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications without the express consent of the author.
4. Data privacy
If it is possible to enter personal or business data (e-mail addresses, names, addresses) on the web site, the user discloses this data solely on a voluntary basis. All of those services offered may also be used and paid for - to the extent technically possible and reasonable - without entering this type of data or by entering anonymous data or a pseudonym.
5. Legal validity of the disclaimer
