1. Homepage contents

The author shall accept no liability whatsoever for the topicality, correctness, completeness or quality of the supplied information. Liability claims against the author, which relate to material or immaterial damage and which were caused through the use or non-use of the supplied information or through the use of incorrect and incomplete information, shall be excluded in principle if it cannot be proved that the author acted intentionally or in a grossly negligent manner.

All offers shall be subject to confirmation and shall be non-binding. The author shall reserve the express right to change, supplement and delete parts of the pages or the entire site without giving separate notification or to stop publication either temporarily or completely.

2. References and links

In the case of direct or indirect references to other Internet homepages ("links"), which are outside the author's area of responsibility, a liability obligation shall only exist if the author is aware of the contents and it would be technically possible and reasonable for him to prevent use in the case of illegal contents. The author therefore expressly states that, at the time of formation of the links, the correspondingly linked pages were free of illegal contents.

The author has no influence whatsoever on the current and future design and contents of the linked/connected pages. He therefore expressly disassociates himself from all the contents of all linked/connected pages which were changed after the formation of the links. This statement shall apply to all links and references within his own Internet homepage and to outside entries made in guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists created by the author. The provider of the page containing references shall be solely liable for illegal, incorrect or incomplete contents and, in particular, for damage which is incurred as a result of the use or non-use of this supplied information. Anyone who merely refers to the particular publication by means of links shall have no liability.

3. Copyright and right to identification

The author shall endeavour in all publications to observe copyrights relating to the utilised graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts, use graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts created by him personally or make use of unlicensed graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts.

All trademarks and brand names that are mentioned in the homepage and are possibly protected by third parties shall be subject without restriction to the provisions of the current right to identification and possession rights of each registered owner. It may not be concluded solely by mentioning their name that trademarks are not protected by third-party rights!

The author shall have sole copyright to published items which he created personally. These graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts may not be reproduced or used in any other electronic or printed publications without the express permission of the author.
