All offers are non-binding. The author expressly reserves, parts of pages or the entire offer without separate announcement to alter, amend, delete or cease publication temporarily or permanently.
2. References and links
As regards direct or indirect references to external websites (“hyperlinks”) which are outside the area of responsibility of the author, liability would only be assumed if the author had knowledge of content and if it was technically possible and feasible to prevent their use in case of illegal content. The author hereby expressly declares that no illegal content was found on the linked pages at the time the links were made. The author has no influence whatsoever on the current and future design, contents and authorship of the linked / referenced pages. For this reason, the author expressly dissociates himself from the contents of all linked / referenced pages which were changed after the links were first established. This statement applies to all links and references set up within the author’s own website as well as to external entries in guest books, discussion forums, link directories, mailing lists and all other forms of databases which can be filled with content by external write access. The provider of the page to which reference was made shall be liable for illegal, incorrect or incomplete contents and notably for damage resulting from the use of or failure to use such information provided, but not the person who merely refers to the publication in question via links.
3. Intellectual property and trademark law
In all publications, the author endeavors to observe the copyright of the graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts that are utilized, to use graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts of his own authorship, or to take recourse to license-free graphics, audio documents, video documents and texts. All trade and brand names that are named within the Internet information supply offer, and that are protected by a third party where applicable, are subject without exception to the stipulations of the relevant legal trademark registration, and to the ownership rights of the relevant registered owner. It should not be concluded that a trademark is not protected by the rights of the third party, even when one is doing no more than simply mentioning it! The copyright for all published objects that have been provided by the author himself belongs exclusively to the author of the site. The duplication or reworking of such graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts in other electronic or print publications is not permitted without the explicit permission of the author.
4. Data protection
If the Internet offers the possibility of entering personal or business data (email addresses, names, addresses) is given, the input of these data takes place expressly on a voluntary basis. The use and payment of all offered services is – insofar as technically possible and reasonable – without specification of any personal data or under specification of anonymized data or an alias. The use in the context of the company details or comparable data published postal addresses, telephone and fax numbers and email addresses for marketing purposes of not expressly requested information is not allowed. Legal steps against the senders of spam mails in case of violation of this prohibition are explicitly reserved.
