Data Protection

1. Website Content
The Author provides no guarantee whatsoever for the topicality, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Any liability claims against the Author pertaining to material or non-material damages caused as a result of the use of or failure to use the information provided or as a result of the use of incorrect and incomplete information are categorically excluded insofar as there is no evidence of intentional misconduct or gross negligence on the part of the Author. All offers are non-binding and subject to change. The Author expressly reserves the right to change, amend or delete parts of the website or the entire website or to temporarily or permanently stop the publication of parts of the website or the entire website without giving separate notice.

2. References and Links
In the case of direct or indirect references to third-party websites ("links") for which the Author is not responsible, the Author can only be held liable in the case that the Author is aware of the content and it would be technically possible and reasonable for the Author to prevent use of the content if it were illegal. The Author hereby expressly declares that the linked websites did not contain any illegal content when the links to these websites were published. The Author has no influence whatsoever on the current and future design, content or authorship of the linked websites. The Author therefore expressly distances itself from all contents of all linked websites that were changed after the links were published. This statement applies to all links and references published on the Author's own website and to third-party entries in guestbooks, discussion fora and mailing lists set up by the Author. Only the operators of websites to which links are published, not individuals who only refer to the published content in question via links, are liable for illegal, incorrect or incomplete content and especially for damages resulting from the use of or failure to use such information provided.

3. Copyright and Trademark Law
The Author endeavours to observe the copyrights of the graphics, sound files, video sequences and texts used, to use graphics, sound files, video sequences and texts created by the Author itself or to use royalty-free graphics, sound files, video sequences and texts in all publications. All brands and trademarks named on the website and, where applicable, protected by third parties are fully subject to the provisions of the valid trademark law and the rights of ownership of their respective registered owners. The mere mention of trademarks alone does not mean that these trademarks are not protected by third-party rights! The website Author is the sole holder of the copyright for published items created by the Author. Any duplication or use of such graphics, sound files, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without the express consent of the Author.

10. Data Privacy Statement for the Use of Google Analytics
This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. Google Analytics is a service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", which are text files that are stored to your computer in order to enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by these cookies about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

Contract Data Processing
We have concluded an agreement on contract data processing with Google and fully implement the strict requirements stipulated by the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.

IP Anonymisation
We use the "activate IP address anonymisation" function on this website. Google therefore abbreviates your IP address before transmitting this information within member states of the European Union or in other contractual states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Your full IP address will only be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated on this server in exceptional cases. Google uses this information to evaluate your use of the website and produce reports on website activity for the operator of this website and to provide the operator of this website with further services connected to the use of the website and the Internet. The IP address transmitted from your browser within the scope of Google Analytics will not be combined with other Google data.

If you have any questions regarding this matter or any other topics concerning personal data, please feel free to contact us at any time via the address provided in our Legal Notice.

12. Objection to Advertising Mails
We hereby explicitly prohibit the use of contact details published within the scope of our obligation to publish a legal notice by third parties to send advertising and information material that has not been explicitly requested. The operators of the website expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the case of receiving unsolicited advertising information, for example via spam mails.
