1. Content of the website
The author assumes no responsibility for the timeliness accuracy completeness or quality of the information provided. Claims for liability against the author for damage or losses of a material or intellectual nature arising from the use or non-use of the information provided or from the use of incorrect or incomplete information are excluded unless the author can be demonstrated to have acted maliciously or with gross negligence. All offers are subject to change without notice and are non-binding. The author expressly reserves the right to change add to or delete parts of or the entire website without prior notice or to discontinue the website temporarily or permanently.

2. Links
Where there are direct or indirect links to external websites which are outside the author’s control liability for such websites would only arise if the author was aware of the contents of the websites and it was technically possible and feasible for it to prevent access to them if they contained unlawful material. The author therefore expressly declares that at the date of providing the links the linked pages were free of illegal content. The author has no influence on the current and future design and content of the linked pages. It therefore expressly disassociates itself from the contents of all linked pages which have been changed after the provision of the link. This applies both to all links and cross-references provided within the author’s own website as well as to postings by third parties in guestbooks discussion fora and mailing lists established by the Author. The provider of a site is solely liable for illegal incorrect or incomplete content on it and in particular for losses or damage arising from the use or non-use of such information not the provider who merely provides a link to the site in question.

3. Copyright and trademarks
The author strives to observe all copyright in graphics sound and video files and texts in all its publications and to use graphics sound and video files and texts produced internally or graphics sound and video files and texts which do not require a licence. All brand names and trademarks mentioned on the website which may be protected by third parties are subject without restriction to the provisions of the applicable trademark laws and the ownership rights of the registered holders. The fact that a trademark is mentioned should not be interpreted to mean that a trademark is not protected by third party rights. Copyright in published material produced by the author itself remains solely with the author. The copying or use of such graphics sound and video files and texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without the explicit consent of the author.
