Exemption of liability
1. Online contents
The author does not take responsibility for the up-to-date ness, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims made against the author concerning material or intellectual damage resulting from the use or non-use of any information provided, including any information that is either incomplete or incorrect, will be rejected unless purpose or gross negligence on the part of the author can be proven. All offers are subject to change and are non-binding. The author reserves the express right to amend, add to, or delete sections of the online content without prior notice or to discontinue all or part of the online content either permanently or temporarily.
The author can only be held liable for either direct or indirect referrals to other Internet sites (“hyperlinks”) for which the author is not directly responsible if the author is aware of the content of the sites in question and if the author is in a position to, and has the technical capacity to, prevent the use of illegal contents. The author declares herewith that at the moment at which the links were first placed on the site no illegal content was apparent on the linked sites. The author has no influence on the current or future design, content and authorship of linked sites. The author cannot therefore be held liable for changes made to any sites after the link has been placed on the site. Furthermore, the author cannot be held liable for either links or postings and messages published by users of discussion boards, guest books, mailing lists, or other similar facilities provided on the author’s own site. Any illegal, incorrect or incomplete contents, and any damage or loss resulting from the use of such information, is the responsibility of the provider of the site to which a link has been made and not the person who merely made the link to the publication in question.
3. Copyright and Trademark Law
In all publications the author has made every effort to observe copyright laws concerning all graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts that have been employed, to use, wherever possible, the author’s own graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts, or to employ graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts that are open source. All trade and brand marks that appear in the author’s Internet content and are protected by third parties are subject in full to the terms of the relevant copyright law and
the right of ownership as applied to the registered owner in each case. It should not be assumed that, simply because a brand is named, the trademarks are not protected by the rights of third parties! The copyright for published material created by the author remains the property of the author of the pages. Any reproduction or use of such graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permissible without the express permission of the author.
4. Data Protection
If and when it is possible to input personal or business data (email address, name, address) on the Internet site, the input of this data takes place on an expressly voluntarily basis. The use of and payment for all services offered is permitted – if technically possible and reasonable – without specification of such data or under specification of anonymized data or an alias. Third parties are not permitted to send unsolicited information through the use of contact details such as postal addresses, telephone/fax numbers and e-mail addresses published in the impressum (here: Contact) or the like. We explicitly reserve the right to initiate legal action against the sender of so-called spam mail in the event of a violation of this prohibition.
Sofern innerhalb des Internetangebotes die Möglichkeit zur Eingabe persönlicher oder geschäftlicher Daten (E-Mail-Adressen, Namen, Anschriften) besteht, so erfolgt die Preisgabe dieser Daten seitens des Nutzers auf ausdrücklich freiwilliger Basis. Die Inanspruchnahme und Bezahlung aller angebotenen Dienste ist – soweit technisch möglich und zumutbar – auch ohne Angabe solcher Daten bzw. unter Angabe anonymisierter Daten oder eines Pseudonyms gestattet. Die Nutzung der im Rahmen des Impressums (hier: Kontakt) oder vergleichbarer Angaben veröffentlichten Kontaktdaten wie Postanschriften, Telefon- und Faxnummern sowie E-Mail-Adressen durch Dritte zur Übersendung von nicht ausdrücklich angeforderten Informationen ist nicht gestattet. Rechtliche Schritte gegen die Versender von so genannten Spam-Mails bei Verstößen gegen dieses Verbot sind ausdrücklich vorbehalten.
