1. On-line contents
The author does not assume any responsibility for the currentness, correctness, completeness or quality of the information that is provided. Liability claims against the author related to material or intangible damages, which were caused by the use or non-use of the offered information or use of incorrect and incomplete information, are generally excluded as long as the author is not at fault due to verifiable intentional or grossly negligent action.
All offers are subject to change and are non-binding. The author expressly reserves the right to modify, supplement and/or delete parts of pages or the entire offer without separate announcement, and to suspend publication entirely or on an intermittent basis.
2. References and links
With respect to direct or indirect references to external web pages ("hyperlinks"), which are outside of the author's area of responsibility, liability would only apply in those cases in which the author is aware of the contents and is technically able and can be reasonably be expected to prevent use in the case of illegal contents.
The author hereby expressly states that no illegal contents were identified with regard to the linked pages at the time they were linked. The author has no control whatsoever over the current and future design, contents or copyright of linked pages. Therefore he expressly distances himself from all contents of all linked pages, which were modified after the link was established. This statement applies to all links and references within the author's e own internet offer, as well as external entries in guest books, discussion forums, link directories, mailing lists set up by the author, and in all other forms of databases in which contents can be accessed with external write access. The provider of the page that was referenced shall be exclusively liable for illegal, incorrect or incomplete contents and in particular for damages resulting from the use or non-use of such information, and not the author who merely makes reference to such publications via a link.
