Exclusion of Liability:
1. Content of the Online Offer
The Author assumes no warranty whatsoever for the currentness, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims against the Author, which make reference to damages of a material or non-material type that have been caused through the usage or non-usage of the information provided or the usage of erroneous and incomplete information, are in principle excluded unless it can be proven that the Author has committed intentional wrongdoing or gross negligence.
All offers are free of obligation and non-binding. The Author expressly reserves the right to change, supplement or delete sections of the pages or the entire offer without any special termination being required or to discontinue their publication upon a temporary or permanent basis.
2. References and Links
With respect to direct or indirect references to third-party Internet sites ("Links"), which lie outside the sphere of responsibility of the Author, a liability obligation would apply exclusively in the case in which the Author has knowledge of the contents and it would be technically possible and reasonable for him to prevent usage in the case of illegal content.
Thus, the Author expressly declares that, at the time the link was placed on the site, the corresponding linked pages had no illegal content. The Author has no influence whatsoever upon the current and future design and the contents of the linked/connected pages. Therefore, he hereby expressly distances himself from all contents of all linked/connected pages that have been changed after the links were placed upon the site. This statement shall apply for all links and references placed within its own Internet offerings as well as for third-party entries in the guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists set up by the Author. For illegal, erroneous or incomplete content and particularly for damages that are created due to the usage or non-usage of such information offered, solely the provider of the page to which reference is made shall be liable, but not the party which merely makes reference to links about the respective publication.

The Author shall endeavor in all publications to not violate the copyrights of the graphics, tone documents, video sequences and texts used, to use graphics, tone documents, video sequences and texts that it itself has created or to use graphics, tone documents, video sequences and texts that do not require a license.
All brands and trademarks specified in the Internet offer and protected, as applicable, by third party-rights shall be subject without limitation to the provisions of the respectively valid labeling law and the ownership rights of the respectively registered owners. Merely due to the creation of a name, one must not draw the conclusion that brands and trademarks are not protected by third-party rights!
The copyright for published materials prepared by the Author himself shall remain the property of solely the Author of the pages. A reproduction or use of such graphics, tone documents, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without the express approval of the Author.
