1. Website content

The author offers no guarantee that the information presented is up to date, correct, comprehensive or of good quality. Claims against the author on the basis of liability for material or non-material damages caused by the use or non-use of the information presented or the use of incorrect or incomplete information are excluded in principle, unless the author can be shown to have acted with intent or with gross negligence.
All offerings are subject to change and non-binding. The author expressly reserves the right to modify, add to, delete or temporarily or permanently cease to publish parts of the web pages or the website as a whole without prior notice.

2. References and links

In the case of direct and indirect links to third party websites for which the author is not responsible, the author will only be liable where the author was aware of the content and, in the case of illegal content, where it was both technically possible and reasonable for him to prevent usage of that content.

The author hereby expressly declares that no illegal content was discernable on linked pages when the links were created. The author has no influence on the current or future design, content or copyright of linked web pages. The author therefore expressly distances himself from the content of all linked pages which are changed after being linked to. This statement applies to all links and references on this website and to all entries by third parties made in guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists set up by the author. The person responsible for a linked website, and not the person linking to any such website, bears sole liability for illegal, incorrect or incomplete content and in particular for damages arising from the use or non-use of any such information.

3. Copyright and trademark law

The author endeavours to observe copyright for all graphics, audio recordings, video sequences and text used, to use graphics, audio recordings, video sequences and text generated in-house or to use license-free graphics, audio recordings, video sequences and text.
All brands and trademarks featured on this website and potentially protected by third parties are subject without restriction to the provisions of relevant trademark law and rights of ownership of their registered owners. The fact of their being cited on this website does not imply that trademarks are not protected by third party rights.

The author retains sole copyright to published objects created by him. The reproduction or use of such graphics, audio recordings, video sequences and text in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without the author’s express permission.
