1. Contents of the online offer
The author does not guarantee that the provided information is up to date, correct, complete or of good quality. Warranty claims against the author referring to material or immaterial damages, which have been caused by use or non-use of the provided information or by using erroneous and incomplete information, are generally ruled out as long as there is no provably deliberate or coarsely careless fault by the author. All offers remain without engagement and not binding. The author expressedly reserves to himself the right to change, add, or delete parts of the pages or the complete offer without notice, or to discontinue their publishing temporarily or finally.
2. References and Links
In case of direct or indirect references to other web sites ("hyperlinks") outside the responsibility of the author, liability would exclusively take place in cases where the author knows the contents, and if it is technically possible for him and can be demanded from him to prevent usage in case of illegal offers. The author expressedly states that no illegal contents could be recognized on the pages to be linked at the time the link was made. The author has no influence at all on the momentary and future design, the contents or the authorship of the linked/connected pages. Therefore he expressedly keeps distance to all contents of all linked/connected pages that have been changed after installing the link. This statement is valid for all links and connections installed within the own Internet offer and for other people’s entries in guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists installed by the author. Only the supplier of the site being directed to is liable for illegal, incorrect or incomplete contents and especially for damages resulting from usage or non-usage of information provided this way, not the one who merely informs about the according published information by links.
3. Copyright and trademark rights
The author endeavors to obey the copyright of the used illustrations, sound documents, video sequences and texts in all publications, to use illustrations, sound documents, video sequences and texts set up by himself, or to make use of license-free illustrations, sound documents, video sequences and texts. All brand and trademarks mentioned within the Internet offer and possibly protected by third parties are without restrictions subject to the regulations of the according valid trademark rights and the possession rights of the according registered owners.

Multiplication or usage of such illustrations, sound documents, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without expressed confirmation by the author.
