Exclusion of liability

1. Content of the online-presentation 

The author accepts no liability whatsoever for the currency, correctness, completeness, or quality of the information provided. Claims of liability against the author which relate to material or intellectual damages which were caused by the use or non-use of the information provided are completely excluded, unless there is deliberate or grossly negligent fault. All proposals are without engagement and non-binding. The author expressly reserves the right to modify, supplement, or delete parts of the pages or the entire presentation without giving specific notice, or to temporarily or permanently cease its publication.


2. References and links 

In the case of direct or indirect references to external Internet sites (links) which lie outside the responsibility of the author, a obligation to liability would come into force exclusively in the case that the author was aware of the contents and it was technically possible for him, and to be expected of him, to prevent the use in the case of illegal contents. The author therefore states expressly that at the time of creating the links, the respective linked pages were free of illegal content. The author has no influence whatsoever on the current and future design and on the contents of the linked pages. He therefore hereby expressly distances himself from all contents of all linked pages which were modified after creating the link. This statement applies to all links and references within this Internet presentation, as well as to external entries in visitors' books, discussion forums, and mailing lists set up by the author. Illegal, incorrect, or incomplete content, and in particular damages arising from the use or non-use of this type of information made available, are the sole liability of the operator of the site to which reference was made, not the operator of the site merely making reference via links to the respective publication.


3. Copyright and trademark right 

The author aims in all publications to comply with the copyright of the graphics, sound documents, video sequences, and texts which are used, to use graphics, sound documents, video sequences, and texts which he has created himself, or to avail of licence-free graphics, sound documents, video sequences, and texts. All brands and trade marks named within the Internet presentation and where applicable protected by third parties are without restriction subject to the provisions of the applicable valid trademark laws and the rights of title of the relevant registered owner. Merely because a name is given, it should not be concluded that trademarks are not protected by the rights of third parties.

The copyright for items published by the author himself remains exclusively with the author of the pages. Duplication, or the use of such graphics, sound documents, video sequences, and texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without the express agreement of the author.


4. Data protection 

To the extent that the possibility to enter personal or business data exists within the Internet presentation (E-mail addresses, names, addresses), then this data is divulged by the user on an expressly voluntary basis. If you send us an e-mail with content which requires protection, please remember that in theory the information may become known to unauthorised persons, or falsified, or deleted by them. It is better to send confidential data by post.

5. Internet conditions 

The Internet functions as a decentralised connection of networks with intermediate storage, and the passing on of temporary data. It is therefore currently not possible to give a guarantee that manipulation and deliberate falsification will be prevented, or to guarantee that only current data will be used (e.g. old version is still in a cache) in a connection between the provider and the user. In relation to this system-related restriction, we point out the following: You receive this data under the conditions of the Internet. Therefore no guarantee can be accepted for the correctness of the data or for its agreement with the original data.

6. Enforceability of the exclusion of liability 

This exclusion of liability is to be viewed as a component of the Internet presentation from which you were linked to this page. If parts or individual wordings of this text do not, no longer, or do not completely comply with the valid legal position, the content and validity of the remaining parts of the document are unaffected by this.
