Disclaimer of liability
1. Website content
The author cannot guarantee that the information provided is up-to-date, correct, complete or of a high quality. The author cannot under any circumstances be held liable for material or immaterial damage resulting from the use of or failure to use the information provided or from the use of incorrect or incomplete information, unless there is evidence of willful intent or gross negligence on the part of the author. All the information on our website is subject to change and is not binding. The author expressly reserves the right to alter, add to or delete sections of the pages or the entire website or to suspend publication temporarily or permanently without prior notice.
2. References and links
The author can only be held liable for direct or indirect references to third-party websites (hyperlinks) which are outside the author's sphere of responsibility if the author is aware of the content of the sites and if he can reasonably be expected to prevent the use of the sites and has the technical means to do so, in the event that their content is illegal. The author expressly states that, at the time when the links were created, no illegal content could be found on the pages to which the links led. The author has no influence whatsoever over the current and future design, content or authorship of the linked pages. For this reason, the author expressly distances himself from all the content of any linked pages which has been changed after the links were created. This statement applies to all links and references on the author's own website and to entries made by third parties in guest books, discussion forums, lists of links, mailing lists and all other forms of database created by the author to which third parties have write access. Liability for illegal, incorrect or incomplete content and, in particular, for damages arising from the use of or failure to use the information provided in this way lies solely with the provider of the linked page and not with the person who simply referred to the website by means of the links.
3. Copyright and trademark law
The author endeavours to respect the copyright of images, graphics, audio and video clips and text used in all his publications, to use images, graphics, audio and video clips and text which he has created himself or to choose copyright-free graphics, audio and video clips and text. All brands and trademarks mentioned on the website, including those which are the property of third parties, are subject without restriction to the provisions of current trademark law and the ownership rights of the respective registered owner. A simple reference to a trademark does not constitute grounds for concluding that the trademark is not legally the property of a third party. The copyright for items created and published by the author lies solely with the author of the pages. The graphics, audio and video clips and text cannot be reproduced or used in other electronic or print publications without the express consent of the author.
