1. Content of the website

The author accepts no liability whatsoever for the up-to-dateness, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims against the author based on material or immaterial damage arising from the use or non-use of the information provided or from the use of erroneous and incomplete information are excluded as a matter of principle where no proof of intent or gross negligence on the part of the author is available. All price offers are subject to change and without obligation. The author expressly reserves the right to change, add to, delete or temporarily or permanently cease publication of part-pages or the site as a whole without prior notice.

2. External references and links

Liability concerning direct or indirect references to external websites (hyperlinks) which are beyond the scope of responsibility of the author would apply exclusively in the event of the author having knowledge of the content and it being technically possible and reasonable for the author to prevent use of the link in the case of unlawful content. The author hereby declares expressly that at the time of publishing the links no illegal content was identifiable on the linked pages. The author has no influence over present and future design, content or copyright of linked pages and therefore distances himself expressly from all content of all linked pages which were modified after the link was published. This statement applies to all links and references within the author's own website and for external entries in guestbooks, discussion forums, link lists and mailing lists set up by the author and all other forms of database where external access to the content is possible. Liability in the case of illegal, faulty or incomplete contents and particularly for damage arising from the use or non-use of information presented in this way is solely the responsibility of the provider of the linked page and not that of the person using links to refer to the publication in question.

3. Copyright and trademark law

In all publications the author endeavours to observe the copyright of the images, diagrams, sound clips, video clips and texts, to use images, diagrams, sound clips, video clips and texts he has produced himself or to use licence-free images, diagrams, sound clips, video clips and texts. All trademarks and brand marks named within the website and possibly protected by third parties are unreservedly subject to the terms of trademark law applicable in the case in question and the ownership rights of the registered owner in each case. The mere reference to a name on the website does not justify the conclusion that brand-names are not protected by third-party copyright! The author of the site is the copyright holder for published works produced by the author himself. Reproduction or use of images, diagrams, sound clips, video clips and texts in other electronic or printed publications is prohibited without the express permission of the author.

4. Data protection

Use and payment of all services offered is - where technically possible and reasonable - also permitted without entering such details or with the entry of anonymized information or a pseudonym. Use by third parties of the contact information publicized as part of these credits or similar information, such as postal addresses, telephone and fax numbers and email addresses, for the purpose of sending information that was not explicitly requested is prohibited. In the event of violation of this prohibition, we expressly reserve the right to take legal action against any party sending spam mail.

5. Legal validity of this disclaimer
