Editorial responsibility and conception.


1. Content of the online offer

The author assumes no responsibility for the topicality, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided.

Liability claims against the author, which refer to damage of a material or immaterial nature caused by use or misuse of the presented information or through the use of faulty and/or incomplete information, are fundamentally excluded, provided that no proven intentional or grossly negligent fault on the part of the author exists. All offers are non-binding and subject to confirmation. The author expressly reserves the right to alter, amend, delete or cease publication temporarily or permanently of parts of pages or the entire offer without separate announcement.


2. References and links

In the case of direct or indirect references to other websites ("hyperlinks") which are outside the responsibility of the author, liability would only come into force in the event that the author has knowledge of the contents and it would be technically possible and reasonable to prevent its use in case of unlawful content. The author hereby expressly declares that at the time of the link setting no illegal contents on the linked sites were identifiable. The author has no influence on the current and future design, contents or authorship of the linked pages that changed after the link was established. This statement applies to all links and references within our own internet offer as well as for external entries in guest books, discussion forums, link lists, mailing lists and all other forms of databases set up by the author onto which external input of data is possible. Permanent supervision of the contents of the linked websites is not reasonable without any concrete information as to potential infringements of the law. In the even of such infringements becoming known to us, we will remove such links immediately. 
Liability for illegal, incorrect or incomplete contents and especially for damage resulting from the use or non-use of such information rests solely with the provider of the page to which reference is made, not with the person who merely refers to the publication in question through links.
