1. Contents of the Online Offer
The author assumes no liability for the currency, correctness, completeness, or quality of the information provided.
The author assumes absolutely no liability for any claims alleging material or immaterial damages caused by the use or non-use of the information provided and/or by the use of defective or incomplete information unless it can be proven that the author is guilty of intentional or gross negligence.
All offers are non-binding and subject to change without notice. The author explicitly reserves the right to modify – in whole or in part – expand, or delete the entire offer without advance notification or to temporarily or permanently suspend the publication.
2. References and Hyperlinks
In the case of direct or indirect hyperlinks to external Internet sites for which the author is not responsible, the author would be liable only if the author had been aware of the contents and it had been technically feasible and reasonable for him to prevent its use in the case of illegal contents. The author hereby explicitly states that at the point in time at which the hyperlinks to external websites were placed, no illegal contents in those websites were apparent.
The author has no influence upon the current or future design, contents, or copyright protection of the hyperlinked websites. For this reason, the author explicitly state that he distances himself from and assumes no liability for the contents of any and all of the hyperlinked websites which have been modified after the hyperlinks were placed. This statement applied to all hyperlinks and references within our own Internet pages as well as for external entries made in guestbooks, message boards, and mailing lists set up by the author. For illegal, erroneous, or incomplete contents – and in particular for damages resulting from the use or non-use of such information – only the actual owners/operators of such hyperlinked websites are liable, and not anyone merely referencing such publications via hyperlinks.
3. Copyright and Trademark Law
The author has made every effort in all of the publications to observe the copyrights of the used graphics, audio documents, video sequences, and texts or to use license-free images, audio documents, video sequences, and texts. All branded names and trademarks appearing in the Internet offer – some of which may belong to third parties - are subject without restriction to the legal provisions of the respectively applicable labeling legislation and the proprietary rights of the respective registered owners.

The copyright for all published items created by the author, himself, are retained exclusively by the author of the site.
