General Disclaimer of Liability
1. Content of the Online Presence:
The internet page operator and the authors shall assume no liability for the topicality, correctness or quality of the information provided. Claims for liability against the operator or the authors which are based upon damage of a material or immaterial type, caused through the use or non-use of the information represented or through the use of incorrect or incomplete information, shall be fundamentally excluded provided it cannot be proved that either the operator or authors acted with intent and/or were grossly negligent. All offers are without engagement and non-binding. The operator and authors expressly reserve the right to modify, supplement or delete sections of the pages or the entire offer without specific notification or to suspend publication temporarily or entirely.
2. References and Links:
Liability in the case of direct or indirect references to third-party internet pages (links), outside the area of responsibility of the operator or authors, may only be derived when the operator of authors have knowledge of the content and when it would be technically possible and reasonable to prevent a use of any illegal content. Therefore, the operator and authors declare expressly that at the time of setting-up the links, the linked pages were free of any illegal content. The operator and authors have no influence whatsoever on the current and future design or on the content of the linked pages. They, therefore, distance themselves expressly from any content on the linked pages that was/has been modified since the links were set-up. This statement applies to all links and references set-up within the internet presence as well as to all third-party entries in guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists established by the operator. The provider of the page to which reference is made shall be solely liable for any illegal, incorrect or incomplete content and, in particular, for any damage ensuing from a use or non-use of such types of information represented and not that party that merely makes reference to respective publications via links.
3. Copyrights and Trademark Rights:
In all publications the author shall endeavour to observe the copyrights associated with the graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts used, to utilise graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts prepared by author him/herself or to fall back on graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts that are licence-free. All brands and trademarks mentioned within the internet presence and possibly protected by third parties shall be unlimitedly subject to the provisions of the currently valid trademark legislation and the ownership rights of the respectively registered owner. It may not be concluded from a simple mention that trademarks are not protected by third-party rights! The copyright for published objects, furnished by author him/herself, shall remain solely with the author of the pages. Any duplication or utilisation of such graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications shall not be permissible without the express consent of the author.
4. Data Protection:
Should there be the possibility of entering personal or commercial data within the internet presence (e-mail addresses, names, addresses), then such divulgence on the part of the user shall be on an expressly voluntary basis. The utilisation and payment of services on offer is – as far as technically possible and reasonable – allowed without the disclosure of such data or through the use of anonymous details or a pseudonym.
5. Legal Validity of the Disclaimer:
This disclaimer of liability is to be regarded as a part of the internet presence to which reference has been made on this page. Should parts or individual formulations in this text not, no longer or not fully be compatible with current legislation, the remaining parts of the document shall remain unaffected by this in their content and validity.
