1. Content of on-line service

We disclaim all warranties that information displayed in or on this website is up-to-date, accurate, complete, or of a certain quality. We generally exclude liability for any tangible and/or intangible loss or damage arising out of your use/non-use of any information displayed in or on this website and/or out of the use of incorrect or incomplete information, provided that the author has not evidently acted deliberately or grossly negligently. All and any offers are non-binding and subject to confirmation. The author expressly reserves the right to modify, amend, delete the site in part or in full without notice or to discontinue the publication temporarily or permanently.

2. References and links

Even though we carefully monitor and check our website, we do not accept any liability for the contents provided by external links. Only the third party operating the linked sites is responsible for their content. In case of direct and/or indirect references to third-party websites (hyper-links) which are beyond the scope of responsibility of the author, liability would only become effective if the author had known the contents and if it had been technically feasible and reasonable for him/her to prevent their use in case of illegal content. The author expressly states that, at the time when the link was established, no illegal content could be detected on the sites to be linked. The author does not have any influence on the current and future design, contents or authorship of the linked sites. Therefore, the author expressly disassociates himself/herself from all and any content of all linked sites which has been modified after the link was established. This statement applies to all links and references established within our own internet services as well as to any posts by third parties in guest books, discussion forums an mailing lists created by the author. In case of illegal, incorrect or incomplete content and especially in case of losses or damage arising out of the use/non-use of information displayed in this way, the operator of the site which was linked is the only person liable; those who merely refer to the publication concerned by means of links are not liable in any way.

3. Copy right

In all publications, the author aims to adhere to the copy right to which the graphics, sound files, videos and texts used are subject and to use graphics, sound files, videos and texts created by himself/herself or to use graphics, sound files, videos and texts available in the public domain. All brand names and trademarks which are mentioned within the context of the on-line services and might be the protected property of third parties, are – without any restrictions – subject to the regulations of the law of copy right and title applicable in case of the respectively registered proprietor(s). The mere mentioning alone does not allow for the conclusion that trademarks are not protected by the rights of third parties! The author of the sites has the exclusive copy right to objects created by the author. The use or reproduction of such graphics, sound files, videos and texts for other electronic or printed publications is not admissible without the express consent given by the author.

4. Privacy

Where personal data and/or company data (e-mail addresses, names, addresses) may be given within the context of the on-line services, the user discloses such information expressly voluntarily. Using and paying for all services provided without giving such information or using anonymised data or a pseudonym is also admissible to the extent technically feasible and reasonable. Third parties are not allowed to use contact information, such as postal addresses, telephone numbers, fax numbers and e-mail addresses, published in the context of legal or similar notices to send information which has not expressly been ordered. We expressly reserve the right to take legal action against senders of spam mail in violation of the prohibition above.
