1. Content of the online offer
The author does not guarantee the currentness, correctness, completeness or quality of the provided information. Liability claims against the author related to material or immaterial damages resulting from the usage or non-usage of the provided information or caused by usage of erroneous or incomplete information are principally excluded provided that the author was not demonstrably culpable in an intentional or grossly negligent sense.
All offers are non-binding and subject to alteration. The author expressly reserves the right to change, supplement, delete or temporarily or permanently cease publication of parts of the pages or of the entire offer without issuing a special announcement.
2. References and links
A liability obligation exclusively comes into effect for direct or indirect references to third-party Internet pages (“hyperlinks”) that are outside of the author’s area of responsibility if the author was aware of the content and technically able to prevent the usage of unlawful content if feasible.
The author hereby expressly declares that no illegal content was discernible on the linked pages at the time of establishing the link. The author has no influence on the current and prospective design nor on the content or authorship of the linked pages. The author hereby expressly distances himself from all content of linked pages that has been changed after establishing the link. This statement applies to all links and references established within the author’s own web offer as well as to third-party entries in guest books, discussion forums, link directories and mailing lists maintained by the author and in all other forms of databases for whose content external write access is possible. Only the provider of the website for which the link is established is responsible for illegal, incorrect or incomplete content and specifically for damage resulting from the usage or non-usage of information offered in this manner and not the person who merely references the respective publications via links.
3. Copyright and trademark law
The author strives to observe the copyrights of all used graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts in all publications, use graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts created by himself or rely on license-free graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts.
All brands and trademarks stated within the web offer, which are possibly protected by third-parties, are unreservedly subject to regulations of the valid trademark law and ownership rights of the respectively registered owners. The mere mentioning of brands and trademarks does not mean that trademarks are not protected by third-party rights!
The copyright for published objects created by the author himself resides solely with the author of the pages. Any reproduction or use of such graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without express consent from the author.
4. Data protection
The user expressly exposes data on a voluntary basis in case the web offer provides the opportunity to enter personal or commercial data (e-mail addresses, names, addresses). The use and payment of all offered services is – as far as technically possible and feasible – also permitted without stating such data or by stating anonymised data or a pseudonym. Third parties are not permitted to use contact data published within the context of the legal notice or comparable data such as mailing addresses, telephone and fax numbers or e-mail addresses for the transmission of information that has not been explicitly requested. Legal steps against the sender of so-called spam emails are expressly reserved in case this prohibition is violated.
5. Legal validity of this disclaimer
This disclaimer is to be regarded as part of the web offer from which reference is made to this page. Other parts of the document remain untouched in regard to their content and validity if parts or individual formulations of this text do not, no longer or do not fully comply with the valid legal position.

Google Analytics uses so-called cookies, i.e. text files that are stored on your computer and analyse your website usage. Information on your website usage (including your IP address) generated by this cookie is transmitted and saved on a Google server in the USA. Google uses this information to evaluate your website usage, compile reports about website activities for website operators and provide other services related to website and Internet usage. Google may also send this information to third parties if required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google. Google will never associate your IP address with other data from Google. You can prevent the installation of cookies with a respective setting in your browser software; however, we want to point out that in such a case you may not be able to use all functions of the website in their full capacity. By using this website, you consent to the processing of the data acquired by Google in the previously described manner and for the aforementioned purpose. An objection can be made at any time to data acquisition and storage with effect for the future at tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. In regard to the discussion about the usage of analysis tools with complete IP addresses, we want to point out that this website uses Google Analytics with the expansion _anonymizeIp() and can, therefore, only further process IP addresses in a shortened form so as to exclude a direct personal reference.
