Terms of Use

1. Content of Online Offerings

The author assumes no liability for the accuracy, completeness or quality of the information provided, nor for the information being current. Liability claims against the author related to material or immaterial damages and which were caused by use or non-use of the information provided and/or by use of incorrect or incomplete information will not be entertained, insofar as it is not demonstrable that there is any willful or grossly negligent fault on the part of the author. All offers are subject to confirmation and are non-binding. The author expressly reserves the right to modify, amend, and/or delete the entire website without notice or to temporarily or permanently terminate it.

2. References and Links

The author would be liable for direct or indirect references to other websites ("hyperlinks") outside his sphere of responsibility only if he were aware of the content and had the technical means and could reasonably be expected to prevent its use in the event it is illegal. The author hereby expressly declares that at the time the links were installed, no illegal content was identifiable on the linked pages. The author has absolutely no influence over the current or future design, content or authorship of the linked/connected pages. He therefore expressly distances himself hereby from all content of all linked /connected pages altered after installation of the link. This statement applies to all links and references made within the author's own website as well as to third-party entries in visitors' books, discussion forums, link lists, mailing lists. Liability for illegal, incorrect or incomplete content and particularly for damages arising from the use or non-use of information provided via these means, lies solely with the provider of the linked site and not with the person merely referring to the corresponding publication via hyperlinks.

3. Copyright and Trademark Law

With respect to all graphics, sound files, video sequences and copy text used in all the publications he compiles, the author strives to respect the copyrights of third parties applying to those graphics, sound files, video sequences and copy text or to have recourse to licence-free graphics, sound files, video sequences and copy text. All brands and trademarks mentioned on the website and, where applicable, protected by third parties are subject without restriction to the provisions of the applicable trademark law and the possession rights of the respective registered owner. The mere mention of a trademark does not constitute grounds for concluding that the trademark is not protected by third-party rights! The copyright for publications created by the author himself lies solely with the author of the pages. Reproduction or use of such graphics, sound files, video sequences and copy texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without the author's express consent.

4. Data Protection

Should the website offer the opportunity to input personal or business data (e-mail addresses, names, addresses), the disclosure of such data takes place expressly on a voluntary basis on the part of the user. The use and payment of all available services is permitted – if technically possible and reasonable – without the disclosure of such data or with the disclosure of anonymous data or under a pseudonym.
