1. Content of the online offer
The author assumes no liability for the topicality, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims against the author relating to material or immaterial damage caused by the use or non-use of the information provided or by the use of incorrect and incomplete information are generally excluded, unless the author can be shown to have acted willfully or grossly negligent. All offers are non-binding. The author expressly reserves the right to change, add to, or delete parts of the pages or the entire offer or to cease publication temporarily or permanently without prior notice.
In the case of direct or indirect references to external websites (“hyperlinks”) that are outside the author’s area of responsibility, liability would only come into effect if the author was aware of the content and it was technically possible and reasonable for him to prevent use in the event of illegal content. The author hereby expressly declares that at the time the link was set, no illegal content was recognizable on the linked pages. The author has no influence on the current and future design, content or authorship of the linked pages. He therefore hereby expressly distances himself from all contents of all linked / connected pages that were changed after the link was set. This statement applies to all links and references set within the author’s own website as well as to third-party entries in guest books, discussion forums, link directories, mailing lists and all other forms of databases to whose content external write access is possible. For illegal, incorrect or incomplete content and in particular for damage resulting from the use or non-use of information presented in this way, the provider of the page to which reference was made is solely liable, not the person who merely refers to the respective publication via links.
2. References and links
In the case of direct or indirect references to third-party websites (“hyperlinks”) that are outside the author’s area of responsibility, liability would only come into force if the author was aware of the content and it was technically possible and reasonable to prevent use in the event of illegal content. The author hereby expressly declares that at the time the link was set, no illegal content was recognizable on the linked pages. The author has no influence whatsoever on the current and future design, content or authorship of the linked pages. Therefore he hereby expressly distances himself from all contents of all linked / connected pages that were changed after the link was set. This statement applies to all links and references set within the author’s own website, as well as to third-party entries in guest books, discussion forums, link directories, mailing lists and all other forms of databases to which external write access is possible. For illegal, incorrect or incomplete content and in particular for damage resulting from the use or non-use of information presented in this way, the provider of the page to which reference was made is solely liable, not the person who merely refers to the respective publication via links.

The author endeavors to observe the copyrights of the images, graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts used in all publications, to use images, graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts created by himself or to use license-free graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts . All brand names and trademarks mentioned on the website and possibly protected by third parties are subject without restriction to the provisions of the applicable trademark law and the ownership rights of the respective registered owner.

The copyright for published objects created by the author remains solely with the author of the pages. Duplication or use of such graphics, audio files, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without the express consent of the author.
If there is the possibility of entering personal or business data (email addresses, names, addresses) on the website, the input of these data takes place voluntarily.
