The author does not provide any guarantee for the up-to-datedness, correctness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims against the author that refer to damage of a physical or ideal type that was caused by the use or non-use of the information provided or through the use or non-use of faulty and incomplete information are excluded on principle insofar as there is no verifiably intentional or grossly negligent fault on the part of the author.

2. References and links 
In case of direct or indirect references to external websites (hyperlinks) that are outside the author’s sphere of responsibility liability, would occur exclusively in cases in which the author had knowledge of the contents and it would have been technically possible and reasonable for him to prevent use in cases of illegal contents. 
The author hereby declares expressly that at the time the link was set illegal contents were not detectable on the pages that were linked to. The author has no influence on the current and future design, the contents or the copyright of the linked/connected page. For this reason he hereby distances himself expressly from the content of all linked/connected pages that were altered after the link was established. This statement applies to all links and references set in his own internet offer and for outside contributions to guest books, discussion forums, and lists of links, mailing lists set up by the author as well as to all other forms of databases whose content can be accessed and written to externally. The provider of the page to which the reference is made shall be solely responsible for illegal, faulty or incomplete content and in particular for losses or damage that are caused by the use or non-use of this type of offered information, and not the person who merely refers to the respective publication via a link.

3. Copyright and trademark rights

All brand labels and trade-marks named in the internet offer that may be protected by third parties are subject without restriction to the provisions of the respective trade-mark statutes and the rights of ownership of the each registered owner. The mere naming should not lead to the conclusion that the brand label is not protected by the rights of third parties!
The copyright for published objects that the author prepares himself remains exclusively with the author of the pages. Copying or using such graphics, audio documents, video clips and texts in other electronic or printed publications is prohibited without the author’s express permission.

Using and paying for all offered services is permitted, insofar as this is technically possible and reasonable, without providing such data or by entering anonymised data or a pseudonym. Third parties are prohibited from using contact data published in the framework of the impressum or comparable information such as postal addresses, telephone and fax numbers and email addresses to send information that was not expressly requested. Legal steps against senders of so-called spam mails in cases of breaches of prohibition are expressly reserved.
