1. Website Content
The author offers no guarantee as to the currentness, accuracy, completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims against the author which are of a material or intangible nature and were caused by the use of or failure to use the provided information, or by the use of incorrect and incomplete information, are generally excluded if no intention or gross negligence on the part of the author has been proven. All quotations are non-binding and subject to change. The author expressly reserves the right to change, add to, or delete parts of pages or the entire website without notice, or to discontinue it temporarily or permanently. 

2. References and Links
For direct or indirect references to external Internet pages (links) that are beyond the author's area of responsibility, liability would only come into effect if the author were aware of the contents and it would be technically possible and reasonable for the author to prevent the use of illegal content. The author therefore explicitly states that the respective linked pages were free of illegal content at the time the links were established. The author has no influence whatsoever on the current and future design and the content of linked pages. For this reason, the author expressly dissociates himself/herself from all of the content on all of the linked pages that was changed after the links were established. This declaration applies to all links and references that are included within the author's own Internet site and to external entries in guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists that have been set up by the author. The provider of the page that has been linked to, and not the party who has simply referenced the relevant publication via links, is solely reliable for illegal, incorrect or incomplete content, and especially for losses resulting from the use of or failure to use the information provided. 

3. Copyright and Trademark
The author strives to respect the copyright for the graphics, audio/video clips and text documents that are used, to use his/her own graphics, audio/video clips and text documents, or to resort to using royalty free graphics, audio/video clips and text documents. All of the trademarks named within this Internet site, including those registered to third parties, are subject without limitation to the provisions of the applicable trademark laws and property rights of the registered owner. The mere mention of trademarks does not prompt the conclusion that such trademarks are not protected by the rights of third parties. The copyright for published objects that have been created by the author are retained solely by the author of the pages. Reproduction or use of said graphics, audio/video clips and text documents in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without the express approval of the author. 

4. Legal Effect of this Disclaimer
This Disclaimer is to be treated as a part of the Internet site to which this page is linked. If parts or individual formulations in this text do not, no longer, or do not wholly correspond to the valid legal status, the remaining parts of this document remain unaffected in terms of their content and validity.
