  1. Content of the homepage
    The author assumes no guarantee for the topicality, accuracy, completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims against the author which relate to material or ideational damage caused by use or non-use of the information provided or by use of erroneous and incomplete information are excluded if no deliberate or grossly negligent blame can be attributed to the author. All content is subject to change without notice and is non-binding. The author expressly reserves the right to change, supplement or delete parts of the pages or the entire offer without a separate announcement or to partially or finally stop publication.
  2. References and links
    In the event of direct or indirect references to third party websites (“links”) which are beyond the responsibility of the author, a liability obligation would come into force only if the author had knowledge of the content and it was technically possible and reasonable for him to prevent use if the content was illegal. The author thus expressly states that at the time of the link setting the corresponding linked pages were free of illegal content. The author has no influence on the current and future structure or content of the linked pages. So, he hereby expressly distances himself from all content of all linked pages which were changed after the link setting. This assessment applies to all links and references within his own internet offer as well as to third party entries in guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists established by the author. The provider of a page on which illegal, erroneous or incomplete content is referred to shall solely be liable and particularly for damage incurred for use or non-use of this kind of information provided, but not for that which merely refers to links on the specific publication.
  3. Copyright and trademark law
    The author shall endeavour in all publications to comply with copyright law for graphics, sound recordings, video sequences and texts, to use graphics, sound recordings, video sequences and texts created by himself or to rely on licence-free graphics, sound recordings, video sequences and texts. All brand labels and trademarks mentioned within the web presence and which may be protected by third parties shall be unrestrictedly subject to the provisions of the applicable trademark law and the right of possession of the specific registered proprietor. It should not be concluded from their mere mention that trademarks are not protected by third party rights! The copyright for published items drawn up by the author himself remains with the author of the pages. Reproduction or use of such graphics, sound recordings, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications is prohibited without the author’s express approval.
  4. The legal force of this exclusion of liability
    This exclusion of liability shall be considered as part of the internet offer pursuant to which this page was referred to. If parts or individual formulations of this text do not, no longer or do not fully correspond to the applicable legal position, the remaining parts of the documents shall be unaffected in their content and validity.
