1. Content of the Online Offering
The author assumes no liability for the up-to-dateness, accuracy, completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims against the author, which refer to damage of a material or intellectual nature resulting from the use or non-use of the information provided or by the use of incorrect or incomplete information, are ruled out in principle, unless it can be proved that there is deliberate or grossly negligent culpability on the part of the author.
All offers are non-binding. The author expressly reserves the right to amend, change or delete either parts of the website or the complete publication without prior notice, or to delete or cancel the publication temporarily or completely.
2. References and Links
In the case of direct or indirect references to Web pages belonging to other parties (‘hyperlinks’) that lie outside the area of responsibility of the author, a liability obligation would only take effect if the author is aware of the content and it would have been technically possible and reasonable for him to prevent use in the case of illegal content.
The author herewith expressly warrants that at the times the links were inserted, no illicit content was identifiable on the linked sites. The author has no influence on the current and future design, content or copyright of the linked websites. He therefore hereby explicitly distances himself from all content on all linked websites that have been changed after the link was inserted. This statement applies to all of the links and references made within his own website and to third-party entries in guestbooks, discussion forums, links lists, mailing lists and all other forms of databases to which external parties have access to write. Only the provider of the site linked to is liable for illegal, incorrect or incomplete content and, in particular, for damages arising from the use or non-use of information provided in this way; not the party who only refers to the publication in question by means of links.
3. Copyright and Trademark Law
In all publications, the author has made every effort to observe copyright laws concerning all graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts, to use his own photographs, diagrams, audio recordings, video sequences and texts or to use diagrams, audio recordings, video sequences and texts that are in the public domain.
All protected brand names and trademarks mentioned on the website are unreservedly subject to the terms of the relevant valid trademark legislation and title of the owner registered in each case. It is not to be assumed that because a brand name is mentioned, it is not legally protected by a third party!
The copyright for published material created by the author remains the property of the author of the pages. No images, audio recordings, video sequences or texts contained herein may be used, reproduced or redistributed in any manner without the explicit permission of the author.
4. Data Protection
If the website provides the opportunity for the input of personal or business data (email addresses, name, addresses), the user explicitly enters this data voluntarily. The use of and payment for all services offered is permitted – if technically possible and reasonable – without specification of such data or under specification of anonymised data or an alias.
Use of the published contact data, such as postal addresses, telephone and fax numbers and email addresses, published in the imprint or comparable information by third parties to send information that has not been explicitly solicited is not permitted. We explicitly reserve the right to take legal action against the senders of so-called spam email in the event of violations of this ban.
5. Legal Validity of this Liability Exclusion
This liability exclusion should be seen as part of the website from which the link to this page was made. If parts or individual wordings of this text do not comply with, no longer comply with or do not completely comply with the current legal situation, the remaining parts of the document remain unaffected in terms of content validity.

This website uses functions of the website analysis service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Analytics uses so-called cookies. These are text files that are saved on your computer and allow analysis of how you have used the website. The information about your use of this website generated by the cookie is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and saved there.
We have activated the IP anonymisation function on this website. As a result, Google will shorten your IP address within the member states of the European Union or in other contracting parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to transmission to the USA.

On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide other services associated with the website use and internet use for the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.
