Privacy

1. Website content

The author strives to keep the content of the website up to date in order to provide users with diversified  and accurate information. He does, however, not accept any liability for currency, accuracy, comprehensiveness or quality of the provided information. Liability claims against the author, that pertain to material or non-material damages accrued as a consequence of the use or non-use of the provided information, and/or through the use of incorrect or incomplete information, are categorically excluded, provided that the author is not proven to have been grossly negligent or to have caused said damages deliberately. All offers are subject to alteration and are non-binding. The author expressly reserves the right to change, complete, delete part of the pages or the entire content without prior announcement or to temporarily or permanently unpublish it.

2. Links and references

In the case of direct or indirect referrals to external websites (“links”), that are outside of the author’s realm of responsibility, obligation of liability would only occur in the event that the author was aware of the content and that he was technically able to and that it would be have been reasonable for him to prevent access to any unlawful content. The author thus explicitly declares that the links were free from any unlawful content at the time of the placement of the links. The author has no influence whatsoever on the current and future form and on the content of the linked/hyperlinked websites. Thus, he herewith distances himself explicitly from all contents of the linked/hyperlinked websites that were altered upon link placement. This deliberation is applicable to all links and references placed on this website as well as to third-party entries in guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists set up by the author. In the case of illegal, incorrect or incomplete contents and particularly in the event of damages resulting from the use or non-use of the information provided in such a way, liability is held exclusively by the provider of the linked website and not by whoever merely referenced such publication via links.

3. Copyright and trademarks

The author strives to observe the copyrights of the graphics, audio files, videos and texts used in all publications, to use his own graphics, audio files, videos and texts or to use royalty-free graphics, audio files, videos and texts. All protected brands and trademarks that may be protected by third parties and are used on the website are unrestrictedly subject to the provisions of the relevantly applicable trademark law and ownership rights of the particular owner. The sole fact that such trademarks are cited should not be deemed indicative of them not being protected by third-party rights! The copyright for published objects that were created by the author himself remains with the author of the website. The use or copy of such objects (graphics, photographs, audio files, videos and texts) in other electronic or print media is not permitted without explicit authorisation from the author.
