DISCLAIMER

1. Website Content

The author does not accept any liability for the timeliness, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims against the author that are based on material or immaterial damages that were caused by the use of or failure to use the information provided or by the use of erroneous and incomplete information are principally precluded as long as there is no evidence of intentional or grossly negligent culpability on the part of the author.

All information offered is non-binding and subject to change. The author expressly reserves the right to amend, supplement or delete parts of the website or the whole website without giving any separate notification or to discontinue publication temporarily or finally.

2. References and Links

In the case of direct or indirect references to websites of third parties ('hyperlinks') outside the range of responsibility of the author, the author shall only be liable and exclusively so in the case where the author is aware of the content and it is technically possible for the author and reasonable to expect the author to be able to prevent the use of such website in the case of illegal content.

The author expressly declares that at the time the links were created, there was no evidence of illegal content on the pages linked. The author has no influence whatsoever on the current and future layout, content and authorship of the linked websites. He therefore expressly disassociates himself from any and all content of any and all linked sites which have been changed since the creation of the link. This statement is valid for all links and references set up within the author's own internet offer as well as for foreign entries in guest books, discussion forums, link directories and mailing lists established by the author and any other form of databases to which external write access is enabled. Liability for illegal, incorrect or incomplete content and in particular for damages arising out of the use or non-use of such information provided shall reside wholly and exclusively with the originator of the referred site and not with the person or organization merely referring to the published material by means of links.
