When you access this website, information about your access (date, time, page viewed) will be stored on our server. This data shall be used exclusively for statistical purposes.
It shall only be analysed in an anonymised form. When you send us an e-mail, your e-mail address and the rest of your personal data will only be used for the individual correspondence with you and will not be passed on to third parties.
Your information shall be used exclusively by us and shall be treated as confidential in accordance with the applicable statutory provisions.
1. Contents of the website
The author shall assume no responsibility for the currency, accuracy, completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims against the author which relate to material or non-material damages that were caused by the use of or failure to use the information provided or by the use of incorrect or incomplete information shall be excluded, unless evidence can be provided of wilful intent or gross negligence on the part of the author.
All offers shall be non-binding and subject to change. The author expressly reserves the right to change, add to or delete parts of pages or the entire website, or to temporarily or finally cease publication, without a separate announcement.
2. References and links:
In the event of direct or indirect references to external websites (“links”) which are outside the author’s area of responsibility, a liability obligation shall only come into effect if the author has knowledge of the contents and it would be technically possible and reasonable for him to prevent usage in the case of unlawful content.
The author hereby expressly declares that no illegal contents were discernible on the linked pages at the time at which the link was set. The author shall have no influence on the current and future design, the contents or the authorship of the linked pages. Therefore, he hereby expressly distances himself from all the contents of all linked pages which have been altered after the link was set. This statement shall apply to all the links and references set within this website and to external entries in guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists set up by the author. Liability for illegal, incorrect or incomplete contents and, in particular, for damages which arise from the use of or failure to use information provided in such a way shall be borne solely by the provider of the page to which the link leads, not the provider of the website which only refers to the respective publication via links.
3. Copyright and trademark law:
The author shall endeavour, in all the publications, to observe the copyrights of the graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts used, to use graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts which he has created himself, or to draw upon licence-free graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts.
All the trademarks which are mentioned within the website and, where applicable, protected by third parties shall be subject, without limitation, to the provisions of the applicable trademark law and the ownership rights of the respective registered owners. The mere mention should not lead to the conclusion that trademarks are not protected by third party rights!
The copyright for published items created by the author himself shall remain with the author of the pages. A reproduction or use of such graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications shall not be permitted without the express consent of the author.
4. Data privacy:
If there is the possibility of entering personal or business data (e-mail addresses, names, addresses) within the website, the disclosure of this data by the user shall take place on an expressly voluntary basis. The utilisation of and payment for all the services offered shall – insofar as this is technically possible and reasonable – also be permitted without the provision of such data or with the provision of anonymised data or a pseudonym. The use of the contact data published within the framework of the legal notice or comparable information, such as postal addresses, telephone and fax numbers and e-mail addresses, by third parties for sending information that has not been expressly requested shall not be permitted. The right to take legal action against the senders of so-called spam e-mails, in the event that this prohibition is contravened, shall be expressly reserved.
5. Legal validity of this liability disclaimer:
This liability disclaimer must be regarded as part of the website from which you accessed this page. If parts or individual phrases of the present text do not, no longer or do not fully correspond to the current legal situation, the remaining parts of the document shall remain unaffected in terms of their content and their validity.
