Disclaimer

1. Online Contents

The author accepts no liability for the quality of the information provided or for it being correct, complete or up to date. Liability claims against the author concerning either material or intellectual damage or other detrimental results resulting from the use or non-use of any information provided, including any information that is either incomplete or incorrect, will therefore be rejected unless either deliberate 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.

2. Links

The author can only be held liable for either direct or indirect referrals to other Internet sites (links) 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 point in time 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 in the public domain. 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 anonymised data or an alias.

5. Procedure in Cases of Violations of the Law

The owner will make every effort to resolve any disputes in a consensual manner and therefore asks to be notified (using the contact details provided) of any conflict or misunderstanding before other steps are taken. 

6. Legal Force of this Disclaimer

This disclaimer is to be regarded as part of the Internet publication from which you have been referred.
