Data Protection

1. Content of the online offer

The author shall bear no responsibility for the currency, accuracy, completeness or quality of the information provided.
 Liability claims against the offer which relate to material or immaterial damage caused as a result of the use or non-use of the information provided or through the use of erroneous information are in principle excluded, inasmuch as there is no demonstrably intentional or grossly negligent action on the part of the author. 
All offers are subject to confirmation and are non-binding. The author expressly reserves the right to change, expand, delete or to temporarily or conclusively discontinue publication of parts of the sites or the entire offer without separate notification.

2. Links and references

Where direct or indirect references to external Internet sites (links) are outside the responsibility of the author, an obligation of liability would enter into force only if the author has knowledge of the content and it was technically possible and reasonable for it to prevent use in the case of unlawful content. 
The author expressly declares that, at the time the links to the relevant sites were created, they were free of illegal content. The author also has no influence on the current and future design, content or authorship of the linked/attached sites. It therefore distances itself expressly from the content of all linked/attached sites which were changed after the link was created. This statement shall also apply to all links and references created within the individual Internet offer as well as for external entries in guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists established by the author. Solely the provider of the site linked to and not the one which only referred to the respective publication via links shall be liable for any illegal, incorrect or incomplete content and in particular for damage resulting from the use or non-use of such information.

3. Copyright and identification right

The author shall endeavour to heed the copyrights of graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts in all publications, to use its own graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts or to rely on licence-free graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts. 
All brands and trademarks named within the Internet offer and, if necessary, brands and trademarks protected by third parties, are subject without restriction to the provisions of the applicable identification right and the right of possession of the respective registered owners. Based on mere mention alone, it cannot be concluded that trademarks are not protected by the rights of third parties! 
The copyright of published items created by the author itself shall be retained by the author of the sites. Reproduction or use of such graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications shall not be permitted without the express agreement of the author.

4. Data protection

If there is an option to enter personal or commercial data (e-mail addresses, names, addresses) in the Internet offer, this data will be divulged solely on a voluntary basis on the part of the user. Insofar as is technically possible and reasonable, utilisation and payment of all services offered shall also be permitted without specification of such data, or by specifying anonymous data or a pseudonym.

5. The legal effect of this disclaimer

This disclaimer is to be considered a part of the Internet offer, from which reference is made to this page. Inasmuch as parts or individual formulations of this text do not, no longer or do not completely comply with the current legal situation, the content and validity of the remaining parts of the document shall remain unaffected by this.
