Exclusion of liability:
1. Content of the website
The Author shall assume no responsibility for the timeliness, correctness, completeness or quality of the information that has been provided. Liability claims against the Author that are based on material or immaterial damage resulting from the usage or nonusage of the provided information or resulting from the usage of incorrect or incomplete information shall be fundamentally excluded, insofar that no demonstrably willful or grossly negligent behavior on the part of the Author is involved.
All offers shall be subject to change and are nonbinding. The Author shall expressly reserve the right to alter, expand or delete sections of pages or the entire site or to temporarily or permanently discontinue it without prior notice.
2. References and links
In terms of direct and indirect references to external Internet sites (“links”) that are outside the Author’s sphere of responsibility, the Author shall be subject to liability only if the Author had possessed knowledge of the content and it was technically feasible and reasonable for the Author to prevent use of any illegal content.
The Author herewith expressly declares that, at the time the link was provided, no illegal content could be found on the sites to which links were provided. The Author has no influence on the current or future design, content or authorship of the linked/associated pages. For this reason, the Author herewith expressly distances him-/herself from all content on all linked/associated pages that had been altered following the posting of the link. This declaration shall also apply to links and referrals provided on the Author’s own website and to external entries made in guestbooks, discussion forums and mailing lists created by the Author.
The provider of the site to which a link was provided shall assume sole liability for illegal, inaccurate or incomplete content and, in particular, for damage arising from the usage or nonusage of such provided information and not the party who merely refers to the posted content using links.
3. Copyright and trademark law
The Author shall endeavor to observe the copyrights of graphics, audio files, video sequences and texts in all publications; to use graphics, audio files, video sequences and texts that he/she created on his/her own; or to utilize license-free graphics, audio files, video sequences and texts.
All brand names and trademarks cited on the website and possibly held by third parties shall be subject, to an unlimited degree, to the provisions of the individual trademark law and the ownership rights of the respective registered owner. It cannot be concluded that the brand name is not protected by the rights of third parties simply because it was mentioned!
The copyright for posted objects created by the Author himself/herself shall remain exclusively with the Author of the website. Reproduction or usage of such graphics, audio files, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications shall not be authorized without the express consent of the Author.
4. Data protection
Should users have the opportunity to provide personal or business data (email addresses, names, mailing addresses), the provision of this data shall be done on a solely voluntary basis. The usage of and payment for all offered services shall be permitted without the provision of such data or shall be allowed by providing anonymized data or a pseudonym — as long as this is technically possible and reasonable.
This exclusion of liability shall be considered a portion of the website from which a reference to this page was made. Should portions or individual wording of this text not comply, no longer comply or only partially comply with currently valid legal regulations, the content and validity of the remaining sections of this document shall remain unaffected.
