Legal Notice

Liability waiver

1. Content of the online offer

The author offers no guarantee as to the up-to-dateness, accuracy, completeness or quality of the information given. Liability claims against the author founded on loss or damage of a physical or intellectual nature caused by the use or non-use of the information on offer or through the use of erroneous or incomplete information are hereby excluded unless the author is demonstrably guilty of intent or gross negligence in this respect. All offers are subject to alteration and non-binding. The author expressly reserves the right to change, supplement or delete parts of or the entire website without prior notice or to suspend or discontinue publication hereof.

2. Links

In the case of direct or indirect links to third-party websites lying outside the author's sphere of responsibility, the author is only liable in the event of having knowledge of the content of said websites and where it would have been technical possible and reasonable for the author to have prevented the use of any unlawful content. The author hereby expressly affirms that, at the time of placing the link, no illegal content was discernible on the linked website. The author has absolutely no influence on the current and future design, content or copyright status of the linked websites. Accordingly the author hereby distances itself from any content of all linked websites which is changed after placement of the link. This affirmation applies to all links placed within the author's own websites as well as to third-party entries in any guest books, discussion forums or mailing lists set up by the author. All liability for illegal, erroneous or incomplete content, and in particular for any loss or damage arising from the use or non-use of any such information, rests solely with the provider of the website to which the link is provided and not with the party merely referring via links to the publication in question.

3. Copyright and rights to trademarks and other designations

The author makes every effort in all publications to abide by the copyright of any graphics, sound recordings, video sequences and texts used, and endeavours to make use of self-produced graphics, sound recordings, video sequences and texts or have recourse to unlicensed graphics, sound recordings, video sequences and texts. All trademarks mentioned on the website which may be protected by third parties are subject without limitation to the provisions of the relevant prevailing trademark law and proprietary rights of the applicable registered owners. The conclusion should not be drawn from the mere mention of these trademarks that they are not protected by third-party rights. The copyright on items published by the author is hereby reserved by the author of the website. Any reproduction or use of any such graphics, sound recordings, video sequences or texts in other electronic or printed publications is prohibited except with the author's express permission.

4. Data protection

Where this website includes the opportunity to input personal or business data (e-mail addresses, names, addresses), the user is surrendering said data on an expressly voluntary basis. Wherever technically feasible and reasonable, all the services on offer may be used and paid for without having to provide such details or by giving anonymised data or a pseudonym.

This liability disclaimer should be viewed as part of an Internet offer from which reference to this page is made. Should parts or individual phrases of this text fail either wholly or in part to comply with prevailing law this shall be without prejudice to the content and validity of the remaining portions of the document.
