1. Content of online offers
The author assumes no guarantee or liability for the correctness, validity, completeness and quality of the information supplied. Liability claims against the author referring to material or intellectual damage resulting from the use or non-use of the information supplied and/or the use of erroneous or incomplete information are in principle excluded inasmuch as there is no evidence of deliberate or wanton negligence by the author. All offers are non-binding and subject to confirmation. The author expressly reserves the right to amend, supplement, delete or to cancel publication for a period of time or completely, any parts of pages or the complete offer without prior notice.
2. References and links
In direct or indirect reference to external Internet sites (“links”) which lie outside the author’s area of responsibility, an acceptance of liability comes into effect only in the case of the author being aware of the contents and having a reasonable technical capability to prevent their use. The author hereby explicitly declares that no illegal contents were identifiable in the linked sites at the time that the links were created. The author has no influence over the current or future structure, contents or authorship of the linked or connected sites. Therefore, he hereby explicitly distances himself from the contents of all linked or connected sites that have been altered since the setting up of the link. This declaration applies to all links and references within the author’s own Internet information supply, as well as to the external items in guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists set up by the author. The provider of the site to which a reference has been made, and not the party who has merely made the connection via links to that particular publication, is liable for any illegal, incorrect or incomplete contents, and in particular for any damage that may result from the use or non-use of information of this kind that is being presented.
3. Copyright and trademark rights
In all publications, the author endeavours to observe the copyright of the graphics, audio files, videos and texts that are utilised, to use graphics, audio files, videos and texts of his own authorship, or to take recourse to licence-free graphics, audio files, videos and texts. All trade and brand names that are named within the Internet information supply offer and that are protected by a third party where applicable are subject without exception to the stipulations of the relevant legal trademark registration and to the ownership rights of the relevant registered owner. Simply naming them does not mean that trademarks are not protected by the rights of a third party! The copyright for all published objects that have been provided by the author himself belongs exclusively to the author of the site. The duplication or reworking of such graphics, audio documents, videos and texts in other electronic or print publications is not permitted without the explicit permission of the author.
Where the possibility exists of personal or business data (email addresses, names, addresses) being entered into the Internet information supply, the surrender of such information by the user occurs on an explicitly voluntary basis. The utilisation and payment of all services offered is authorised – as far as is reasonably technically possible – without such data being released, under the protection of anonymity or a pseudonym.
