The author assumes no liability for the topicality, accuracy, completeness or quality of the material on this website or the information contained in it. Under no circumstances may liability claims against the author relating to material or non-material damage arising out of the use or non-use of the information provided or arising out of the use of faulty or incomplete information, unless there is evidence of fault by intention or gross negligence on the part of the author.
Cross references and links
In the case of direct or indirect links ("hyperlinks") to external websites outside the scope of responsibility of the author, the author can only be held liable if he is aware of the content of these websites and it is technically possible and reasonable for him to prevent the use of these websites should they contain illegal material.
The author hereby explicitly confirms that there was no identifiable illegal content on these websites at the time the link was established. The author has no influence on the current or future design, content, or authorship of the linked/cross-referenced websites. The author therefore hereby explicitly distances himself from any content of any linked website that has been altered since the link was established. Only the provider of the linked/cross-referenced website can be held liable for any illegal, faulty or incomplete content and particularly for damage arising as a result of the use or non-use of any information provided, and not the provider of the website that simply refers to the web pages in question.
Copyright and trade mark law
In all publications, the author makes every effort to adhere to copyright regulations applying to any graphics/images, acoustic data, video material and text used by him, and to use only graphics/images, acoustic data, video material and text produced by him or freeware/shareware graphics/images, acoustic data, video material and text.
Any references in the material on this website to brands or trade marks that may be protected by a third party are unconditionally subject to the provisions of the relevant laws on trade marks and to the property rights of the registered owner. Even where a brand or trade mark is merely mentioned, it should not be assumed that the brand or trade mark is not protected by the rights of a third party.
The copyright for published material produced by the author remains exclusively with the author of these web pages. The reproduction or use of any graphics/images, acoustic data, video material or text in other electronic or printed publications without the express permission of the author is prohibited.
