Information and general exclusion of liability

1. Content of the online service

The provider does not give any guarantee for the provided information being up to date, accurate or complete or for its quality. Liability claims towards the provider relating to damages of a material or ideal nature caused by using or not using the provided information or by using faulty and incomplete information are excluded on principle unless there is demonstrably wilful or grossly negligent behaviour on the provider’s part. All offers are subject to change and not binding. The provider reserves the right to change, amend or delete parts of the sites or the whole service without prior notice or to suspend or cancel the publication temporarily or completely.

2. References and links

For direct or indirect references to external web sites (“hyperlinks”) not within the provider’s responsibility, a liability would arise in the event only that the provider is aware of their contents and it is technically possible and reasonable that it could prevent usage of them in case of illegal contents. The provider expressly states that at the time the link was published no illegal contents were identifiable on the sites to be linked. The provider does not have any influence on the current and future design, the contents or the authorship of the sites linked/connected changed after the time of publication of the link. This statement applies for all links and references made within the own internet service as well as for external entries in guest books, forums, link registers, mailing lists established by the provider and in all other forms of data bases external writing access is possible on. The provider of the linked page shall be solely responsible for illegal, faulty or incomplete contents and in particular for damages arising from using or not using information so provided; the provider only referencing the publication by means of links to such publication shall not be liable.

3. Copyright and trademark law

The provider aims to comply in all publications with copyrights of the images, graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts used, to use images, graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts created by itself or to fall back on public domain graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts. All trademarks referenced within the internet service and possibly trademarked by third parties are subject to the provisions of the relevant applicable trademark law and the title of the relevant registered owners. It shall not be inferred due to the simple mention that trademarks are not protected by third party rights! The copyright for published objects created by the author themselves shall remain with the site provider alone. Reproducing or using such graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications is not admissible without the provider’s express consent.

4. Privacy

If it is possible within the internet service to enter personal or business information (e-mail addresses, names, addresses), it is expressly voluntary to the user to disclose such data. Using and paying all services offered is admitted without giving such information or by stating information made anonymous or a pseudonym as well. It is not admissible for third parties to use contact data published within the website credits or in a similar way such as postal addresses, telephone and fax numbers as well as e-mail addresses in order to send information not expressly requested. The provider expressly reserves the right to take legal steps against senders of so-called spam mails in case of such prohibition being breached.

5. Legal effectiveness of such exclusion of liability

This exclusion of liability shall be deemed an integral part of the internet service referencing this site. If a part or individual phrases of this texts do not or no longer or not completely comply with the applicable legal situation, the other parts of the document shall remain unaffected in their content and their validity.
