Exemption from Liability
1. Contents of the website

The author shall accept no responsibility of any kind for the immediacy, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Any liability claims made against the author, relating to damage of a material or ideal nature and caused by the use or non-use of the information provided or the use of incorrect or incomplete information, shall be rejected, provided that it cannot be proved that the author is guilty of premeditated or gross negligence.

Any offers shall be free and non-binding. The author shall expressly reserve the right to modify, supplement or delete parts of or the entire website without prior information or to temporarily or permanent withdraw the publication.

2. References and Links

In the case of direct or indirect references to third-party websites (“Hyperlinks”), which are outside the sphere of responsibility of the author, any claims for liability shall only be valid in such cases as the author is aware of the contents and it was technically possible and responsible that they could have prevented use in the case of illegal content.

The author hereby expressly states that, at the time at which the link was created, no illegal content was discernible on the page(s) being linked to. The author has no influence on the current and future design, contents or copyrights of the linked page(s). Therefore, the author expressly distances themselves from all the contents of any linked pages, modified after the link was created. This declaration shall apply to all the links and references set within their own website as well as for third-party entries in guestbooks, discussion forums, lists of links and mailing lists set up by the author and in all other forms of database, to whose contents external write access is possible. Only the provider of the page to which the link refers shall be responsible for illegal, incorrect or incomplete contents and, in particular, for damage caused by the use or non-use of information presented in such as way, and not the person merely referring to the appropriate publication via links.

3. Copyright and trademark law

The author has made every attempt to observe the copyright of all the images, graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts appearing in every publication and to use their own images, graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts or license-free images, graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts.

All the trademarks named, and possibly protected by third parties, within the website shall be subject in full to the appropriately applicable copyright law and the property rights of the appropriately registered owners. A simple mention shall not provide sufficient grounds to draw the conclusion that trademarks are not protected by the rights of third-parties.

The copyright for published objects, created solely by the author, shall remain the sole property of the author of the pages. Reproduction or use of such graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publication shall not be permitted without the express permission of the author.

Should copyrighted material still be used without indication of the same or without the permission of the appropriate rights’ owner, then the author requests that they be informed of this. The appropriate material shall then be removed immediately.
