Our web pages and their contents are subject to German copyright law. Unless expressly permitted by law (§ 44a et seq. of the copyright law), every form of utilizing, reproducing or processing works subject to copyright protection on our web pages requires the prior consent of the respective owner of the rights. Individual reproductions of a work are allowed only for private use, so must not serve either directly or indirectly for earnings. Unauthorized utilization of copyrighted works is punishable (§ 106 of the copyright law).

1. Contents of the online offer
The author does not guarantee the topicality, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims regarding material or immaterial damage caused by the use or non-use of any information provided, including any kind of information, which is incomplete or incorrect, will therefore be rejected unless the author's deliberate or grossly negligent fault can be proven. All offers are without obligation and unbinding. The author explicitly reserves his right to modify parts of his web pages or the whole Internet presence, to extend, to delete or to suspend or cease his publication without separate announcement.

2. Referrals and links
In case of direct or indirect cross references (hyperlinks) to third parties' Internet presences that are not part of the author's responsibilities, a warranty obligation would exist solely if the author knew the content of those web pages and if he had the technical possibilities to reasonably prevent the use of those web pages in case of illegal contents. The author explicitly declares that no illegal contents could be observed on the linked web pages at the moment when the link was established on the author's web pages. However, the author does not have any influence on the current and future design, the contents or the authorship of the linked pages. Therefore, he herewith explicitly distances himself from all contents of the linked pages that have been modified after linking. This statement is valid for all links and referrals included in the author's own web pages as well as for third parties' entries in guest books, discussion boards and mailing lists provided on the author's page. It is solely the author of the linked Internet page and not the one who has simply made the link to these pages, who is responsible for illegal, faulty or incomplete contents, above all for damages arising from the use or non-use of thus proffered information.
