1. Content of the online service

The author declines all responsibility for the topicality, accuracy, completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims against the author relating to damage of a material or non-material nature caused by the use or non-use of the information presented or through the use of incorrect and incomplete information are excluded in principle, insofar as no premeditated or grossly negligent default can be proven on the part of the author. All offers are non-binding and subject to change. The author expressly reserves the right to change, extend, delete or cease publication temporarily or permanently of parts of the pages or the entire offer without separate announcement.


2. References and links

In the event of direct or indirect references to third-party websites (“hyperlinks”) falling outside the area of responsibility of the author, liability would only take effect if the author were aware of the content and that it were technical feasible and reasonable for the author to prevent use thereof in the event of illegal content.

The author hereby expressly declares that, at the time when the link was created, no illegal content was identifiable on the websites to be linked. The author has no influence over the current and future design, content or authorship of the linked websites. He therefore expressly distances himself from all content on all linked websites which have been changed since the link was created. This declaration applies to all links and references contained on the company’s own website as well as to external entries in guest books, discussion forums, link registers, mailing lists and any other forms of database set up by the author the contents of which are open to external write access. With regard to illegal, incorrect or incomplete content and in particular to damage resulting from the use or non-use of such information presented, the provider of the website referred to is solely responsible and not the provider who merely referred to the publication in question by means of links.


3. Copyright and trademark law

The author makes every effort to observe the copyright relating to the pictures, graphics, audio recordings, video sequences and texts used in all publications; to use pictures, graphics, audio recordings, video sequences and texts prepared by himself; or to make use of licence-free graphics, audio recordings, video sequences and texts.

All trade and brand marks named on the website and, where applicable, protected by third parties are subject in full to the terms of the relevant trademark law and the rights of ownership of the registered owners concerned. The mere mention of a trademark should not lead to the conclusion that it is not protected by third party rights!

The author retains sole copyright for published material created by the author. Reproduction or use of any such graphics, audio recordings, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications is prohibited without the express permission of the author.


4. Data protection

Insofar as the website offers the possibility of entering personal or business data (e-mail addresses, names, addresses), these data are provided expressly by the user on a voluntary basis. Usage and payment of all services offered are – insofar as is technically feasible and reasonable – permitted without any such data being entered or through the use of anonymised data or a pseudonym. Any use made by third parties of the contact data published in the imprint or similar data such as postal addresses, telephone and fax numbers and e-mail addresses to transfer information which is not expressly requested is not permitted. We expressly reserve the right to take legal measures against senders of so-called spam mails which violate this regulation.


5. Legal effect of this disclaimer

This disclaimer is to be considered an integral part of the website from which this page has been referred. Insofar as parts or individual formulations of this text do not, no longer or do not fully comply with the law currently applicable, the content and validity of the remaining parts of the document remain unaffected.


6. Use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files which are saved on your computer and which facilitate an analysis of the use you make of the website. The information generated by the cookie concerning your use of this website (including your IP address) will be sent to a server operated by Google in the US where it will be saved. Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports concerning the website activities for the website operator and to provide other services related to the use of the website and of the Internet. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. In no event will Google associate your IP address with other Google data. You can prevent the installation of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; we would nevertheless point out that should you do so, you may not be able to make full use of all this website’s functions. By using this website, you consent to the processing of data collected about you by Google as described above and for the aforementioned purposes. Data collection and storage can be rejected at any time with future effect. To this end, you can use the Google Analytics deactivation add-on (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de), insofar as it is available for your browser.

It is recalled that this website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp()” and that IP addresses are therefore only processed further in abbreviated form to prevent them being directly linked to a particular individual.
