1. Content of the Website.
The Author accepts no responsibility for the quality of the information provided on this Website, nor for whether it is up to date, correct or complete. No claims for liability made against the Author based on damage of a material or non-material nature resulting from the use of or failure to use the featured information or the use of incorrect and incomplete information will be accepted, except in cases of wilful or gross negligence on the part of the Author.
All information provided on the Website is subject to change and non-binding. The Author reserves the express right to amend, add to or delete sections of the online content without prior notice, or to remove all or part of the online content either permanently or temporarily.
2. References and links.
If the Website contains direct or indirect references ("hyperlinks") to external websites for which the author is not responsible, the author will not accept liability for the content of said external websites unless he or she had prior knowledge of the content when the link was established and it would have been technically possible and reasonable to expect that he or she would prevent its use if the content of said external website were illegal.
The Author hereby explicitly states that, at the time the link was established, there was no evidence of illegal content on the external website to which the link leads. The Author has no influence over the current or future design, the content or the authorship of the linked/connected external websites. As such, the Author expressly dissociates himself/herself from all content on linked external websites that has been altered since the link was placed on this Website. This statement applies to all links and references, as well as external entries in guest books set up by the Author, discussion forums, link listings, mailing lists and in all other forms of databases whose contents are externally accessible and allow external users to write on our own Website. The operator of the external website to which the link leads shall bear the sole responsibility for any illegal, faulty, or incomplete content, and in particular for any damage resulting from the use or non-use of information presented in this way. The party that simply provides links to the publication in question shall be entirely exempt from such responsibility.
3. Copyright and trademark laws.
In all publications, the Author has made every effort to observe copyright laws concerning all images, diagrams, audio documents, video sequences and texts that have been used; to use wherever possible the Author's own images, diagrams, audio documents, video sequences and texts; or to use diagrams, audio documents, video sequences and texts that are in the public domain.
All trademarks and brands mentioned on the Website, including those protected by third parties, are subject without restriction to the provisions of the applicable trademark law and the ownership rights of the registered copyright holder. The sole fact that such trademarks are cited shall not be deemed to indicate that they are not protected by third party rights.
The copyright for published material created by the Author himself/herself shall remain the property of the Author of the pages. The reproduction or use of such diagrams, audio documents, video sequences or texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without the express consent of the Author.
4. Data protection.
Should the Website present the User with the option to enter personal or business data (email addresses, name, postal addresses), such information shall be provided by the User expressly on a voluntary basis. The use of and payment for all services offered on the Website is permitted – within the realms of reason and technical feasibility – without the specification of such data or under the specification of anonymised data or an alias. It is forbidden for third parties to use details given in the legal notice or similar published details such as postal addresses, telephone numbers, fax numbers or email addresses to send information that has not been expressly requested. We reserve the right to take legal measures against senders of “spam” emails that violate this prohibition.
