The author accepts no responsibility for the currentness, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims against the author for material or non-material damage resulting from the use or non-use of the information provided or from the use of incorrect or incomplete information are excluded, except in the case of wilful intent or gross negligence on part of the author. All offers are non-binding and without obligation. The author expressly reserves the right to vary, extend or delete part or all of the website without prior notice, or to discontinue publication temporarily or permanently.
2. References and Links
The author will only be liable for direct or indirect references to third-party websites ("hyperlinks"), which are outside his area of responsibility, if the author is aware of such content and, where the content is illegal, it would have been technically possible and reasonable for the author to prevent the use.. The author hereby expressly states that no illegal content was apparent on the linked pages at the time of the creation of the links. The author has no influence at all on the current and future design, content or authorship of the linked pages. Therefore, the author dissociates himself from the content of all linked pages which have been changed since the links were established. This statement applies to all links and references on the author's own website presence as well as third party entries into guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists set up by the author. Liability for illegal, incorrect or incomplete content and in particular for damage resulting from the use or non-use of such information lies solely with the provider of the page to which reference has been made and not with the party who merely provides links to the respective publication.

All trademarks and brandnames referred to on this website presence, and possibly protected by third parties, are unconditionally subject to the provisions of the applicable law on trademarks and the proprietary rights of the respective registered owner. The mere mention of trademarks must not lead to the conclusion that trademarks are not protected by third party rights! The copyright to published objects created by the author himself remains solely with the author of the pages. The reproduction or use in other electronic or printed publications of such graphics, audio files, video sequences and texts is not permitted without the author's express consent.
