Party responsible for its own content pursuant to §5 TMG (Telecommunication Media Act)
Exclusion of Liability
1. Content of the website
The author assumes no liability for the quality of the information supplied or its being up-to-date, correct, or complete. Liability claims against the author related to material or non-material damages caused by use or non-use of the information supplied and/or the use of incorrect and incomplete information are excluded in principle, provided the cause is not attributable to the author on the basis of wilful conduct or gross negligence. Our offers are open and non-binding. The author explicitly reserves the right to change, supplement, delete or temporarily or perma-nently stop publication of parts of website or the entire website without special notice.
2. References and links
For direct or indirect references to other websites (“hyperlinks”) outside the author’s scope of responsibility, liability would only enter into effect if the author had knowledge of the content and it were technically possible and reasonable for the author to prevent use in the case of illegal content. The author hereby expressly declares that no illegal content was present on the sites linked to at the time the links were created. The author has no influence of any sort on the current and future appearance, content or authorship of the sites linked to. For this reason, the author hereby explicitly distances himself from the content of all websites linked to that has been changed since the links were originally created. This applies to all links and references within the operator’s own website, and to entries by third parties in guest books, discussion forums, link directories, mailing lists and all other forms of databases to which external parties have write access and which were set up by the author. In the event of illegal, incorrect or incomplete content, and in particular, of damage caused by the use or non-use of such informa-tion, solely the owner of the website to which reference was made is liable, not the owner of the page on which the links were placed.
3. Copyrights and trademarks
The author is committed to observing the copyrights of the images, graphics, audio files, video sequences and texts used in all publications, to using images, graphics, audio files, video se-quences and texts that have been created by the author, or to make use of licence-free images, audio files, video sequences and texts.All trademarks used on the website, including those that may be protected by third parties, are unconditionally subject to the provisions of the valid trademark law and the ownership rights of the registered owners. It should not be concluded from the mere fact of naming that trademarks are not protected by third-party rights. The copyright to published objects created by the author remains with the author of the site. Reproduction or use of such images, audio files, video sequences, and texts in other electronic or print publications is not permitted without express approval of the author.
4. Data Protection
On some pages you have the possibility to enter personal or business data (e. g. e-mail ad-dresses, names, postal addresses, etc.). The disclosure of this data is voluntary. If technically feasible and where reasonable, all services offered can be used without disclosing personal information or by use of anonymised data or aliases. Exceptions are forms for ordering publica-tions or other materials, registration forms for events or accreditation forms. Third parties are prohibited from sending unsolicited information to mailing addresses, phone or fax numbers or e-mail addresses published on the imprint page or similar pages. We reserve the right to take legal action against anyone violating this prohibition by sending so-called spam.
5. Legal validity of this exclusion of liability
This exclusion of liability should be viewed as a component of the website from which this page was linked to. In the event that parts or individual formulations of this text do not, no longer, or do not fully correspond to the applicable legal situation, the remaining parts of the document remain unaffected in respect of their content and validity.
