1. Referrals and links

With direct or indirect referrals to other internet pages ("links") that are outside the author’s area of responsibility, liability would only come into effect in the case that the author knew of the contents and it would be technically possible and reasonable for him to prevent use in the case of illegal content. The author hereby declares that at the time of setting up the link the linked pages were free of illegal content as far as the author could see. The author has no influence on current or future design, content or the authorship of the linked/connected pages. He therefore dissociates himself specifically from all content on all linked/connected pages that were altered after the link had been set up. This declaration is valid for all links and referrals within the company’s own website and also for entries by other persons in guest-books, discussion forums and mailing lists set up by the author. The operator of the page that was referred to is liable for illegal, incorrect or incomplete content, and in particular for damage that arises from the use or non-use of information offered in this way, and not the person who has merely referred to the publication via links.

2. Copyright and trademark legislation

The author endeavours to respect the copyright of graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts in all publications and to use graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts that he has designed himself or to use unlicensed graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts. All brand names and trademarks named and, where applicable, protected by third parties contained within this website, are subject without restriction to the provisions of the relevant copyright law and the right of ownership of the registered owner. The conclusion cannot be drawn on the basis of naming alone, that brand names are not protected by the rights of third parties! The copyright for published works created by the author remains solely with the author of these pages. The reproduction or use of such graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts, in other electronic or printed publications, is not permitted without the express agreement of the author.

3. Legal validity of this liability disclaimer

This liability disclaimer is to be regarded as part of the Internet publication from which there was a referral to this page. In so far as sections or individual formulations of this text are not legal or should no longer be legally valid the remaining sections of the document remain unaffected in their content and validity.
