1. Online Content
The author does not assume any liability for the currency, correctness, or completeness of the information provided on these website pages. Basically excluded are liability claims against the author of these pages that are related to damages of a material or nonmaterial type and were caused by the use or nonuse of the information provided or by incorrect and incomplete information, provided that the pages by the author do not represent any provable intentional or gross negligence.
All offers are free and nonbinding. The author expressly reserves the right to change parts of the website pages or the entire offering without prior notification, to supplement them, remove them, or cease publication of them either temporarily or entirely.
2. References and Hyperlinks
Liability obligation for direct or indirect references to external Internet pages (“links”), which do not reside within the author’s area of responsibility, would only be in force if the author has knowledge of their content and if it would be technically feasible and reasonable to prevent their use in the case of illegal content. The author hereby expressly declares that at the time the links were created to the website pages to be linked, no illegal content was evident. The author has no influence on the current or future design, the presented content, or the authorship of the linked pages. For this reason, the author dissociates itself from all content of any linked sites that have been altered after the link was created. These statements shall retain their validity for all links and references set up within the author’s Internet content and for external entries made in the visitor’s comments and mailing lists set up by the author. The liability for all illegal, incorrect, or incomplete content, and in particular for potential damages that may arise from the use or nonuse of such presented information, shall fall solely upon the provider of the site that has been referenced.
3. Copyright and Trademark Rights
The author ensures that the copyrights of the images, sounds, video scenes, and texts which are used are properly observed in all publications, that images, sounds, video scenes, and texts produced by the author are used or that license-free images, sounds, video scenes, and texts are used. If protected brand or product names are used within the Internet offering, they are subject, without exception, to the provisions of applicable trademark law, and they are owned by their respective registered owners. It cannot be deduced that these trademarks are not protected by third- party rights simply because they are named. The copyright for published and self-created objects is retained exclusively by the author of the website. Duplication and use of these images, sounds, video scenes, and texts in other electronic or printed publications is prohibited without the express approval of the author.
4. Data Protection
