Data Protection

Legal Information


1. Content of the online offer 

The author shall not be responsible for the up-to-dateness, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Any liability claims against the author for material or non-material damages caused by the use or non-use of the provided information or by the use of incorrect or incomplete information are strictly excluded, unless there is evidence of willful intent or gross negligence on the part of the author.

All offers are subject to change and non-binding. The author expressly reserves the right to change, to amend or to cancel parts of the pages or the complete offer as well as to stop the publication temporarily or finally without prior notice. 


2. Links and references 

In case of direct or indirect references to external websites ("hyperlinks") for which the author is not responsible, the author shall only be liable if he/she knows the contents of such websites and has the technical possibilities - if it can be reasonably expected – to prevent the use of possible illegal contents.

Herewith the author expressly declares that there was no evidence for illegal contents on the pages to be linked at the moment the link was placed. The author has no influence whatsoever on the current and future design, the contents or the copyright of the linked pages. Therefore, the author expressly distances him/herself from all contents of the linked pages that have been altered after placing the link. This shall apply to all links and references placed within the own internet offer as well as to third party entries in the guestbooks, discussion forums, link lists, mailing list and any other kind of databases that were established by the author and to which external write accesses are possible. Liability for illegal, incorrect or incomplete contents and, in particular, for damages caused by the use or non-use of information offered in that manner shall be assumed solely by the owner of the website, which was referred to and not by the person who only refers to the respective publication by means of links. 


3. Copyright and trademark legislation 

In all publications the author aims to observe the copyright of the used pictures, drawings, audio documents, video sequences and texts and to use pictures, drawings, audio documents, video sequences and texts that where prepared by him/herself or to use public domain drawings, audio documents, video sequences and texts.

All trademarks and brands mentioned within the internet offer and that are possibly protected by third party rights are – without restrictions – subject to the provisions of the applicable trademark legislation and to the ownership rights of the registered owner. From the fact that a trademark was mentioned alone it cannot be concluded that the trademark is not protected by third party rights!

The copyright for published objects that where created by the author him/herself is held solely by the author of the pages. Any copying or reproduction or the use of such drawings, audio documents, video sequences and texts in other electronic or print publications are only permitted with the express approval of the author.


4. Privacy statement 

If the internet offer contains options for entering personal or business data (e-mail addresses, names, postal addresses), such data shall be provided by the user on an expressly voluntary basis. The utilization and payment of all offered services are also permitted – as far as technically possible and reasonable – without indicating such data or by indicating anonymized data or a pseudonym. The use of contact details – including postal addresses, telephone and fax numbers or e-mail addresses – that are published in the company information or in comparable information pages by third parties for sending unsolicited information shall not be permitted. We expressly reserve the right to initiate legal proceedings against persons who violate this prohibition by sending so-called spams.


5. Legal disclaimer 

This exclusion of liability shall be considered part of the internet offer containing the reference to this page. In the event that parts or individual phrases of this text do not, no longer or not completely comply with the applicable laws, this shall not affect the validity and the contents of the other parts of the document.
