Content of online service

The author accepts no responsibility for the timeliness, accuracy, completeness or quality of the information provided. All liability claims against the author relating to tangible or intangible losses caused by the use or non-use of the information provided or by the use of incorrect or incomplete information are excluded, unless deliberate intent or gross negligence on the part of the author can be demonstrated.

All services are offered without engagement and are non-binding. The author expressly reserves the right to change, add to or delete parts of the pages or the whole service, or to suspend publication temporarily or permanently, without specific notice.

Data protection

Where there is the facility to provide personal or business details (e-mail addresses, names, addresses) within the Internet service, these details are disclosed by the user on an explicitly voluntary basis. The use of and payment for all services – where technically feasible and reasonable – is permitted even without providing such details or providing anonymous details or a pseudonym. Use of the contact details such as postal address, telephone numbers and fax numbers and e-mail addresses provided in the Site information by third parties to send information not expressly requested is not permitted. We expressly reserve the right to take legal action against anyone sending spam e-mails in direct breach of this ban. All messages left and personal data transferred will be used and saved exclusively for internal processing.

The author points out that for technical reasons it cannot be ruled out that third parties will view the data transferred. Data is therefore sent at the user’s own risk. Personal data is not collected on this Internet site without the knowledge of the user (e.g. by cookies).

Cross-references and links

For direct or indirect links to external websites (hyperlinks) which are outside the author’s scope of responsibility, liability would only take effect in the case where the author had knowledge of the contents and it would be technically feasible and reasonable to prevent the use of illegal content.

The author hereby expressly declares that no illegal content was found on the pages to be linked at the time the link was created. The author has no influence over the current and future design, contents and copyright of the pages linked. For this reason he expressly distances himself from all content on all pages linked which have been changed since the link was created. This statement applies for all links and cross-references within this internet site and entries in guest books, discussion forums, link directories, mailing lists set up by the author and in all forms of databases whose content may include external entries. The provider of the linked site is solely responsible for illegal, incorrect or incomplete content and particularly for damages which occur through using or not using the type of information provided; the provider of the site which links the site which hosts the publication concerned.

Copyright law

The author has endeavoured to observe copyright of images, graphics, sound files, video sequences and text used in all publications and to use his own images, graphics, sound files, video sequences and text or graphics, sound files, video sequences and text not under licence.

All brands and trademarks mentioned in the web site and/or protected by third parties are subject without restriction to the provisions of the applicable trademark legislation and the rights of title of their registered owners. The mere mention of these trademarks should not be taken to imply that they are not protected by third-party rights.

Copyright for items published and created by the author lies exclusively with the author of the site. Reproducing or using such graphics, sound files, video sequences and texts in other electronic or print publications is not permitted without the express permission of the author.
