Declaration regarding exclusion of liability
Content of online presentation
The author shall provide no guarantee whatsoever as regards the current applicability, correctness, completeness or quality of the supplied information. Liability claims against the author relating to prejudice of a material or non-material nature caused by the use or failure to use the available information and/or the use of incorrect and incomplete information, shall be excluded in all cases where no proven fault resulting from intent or gross negligence exists on the part of the author. All offers are made without obligation and to non-binding effect. The author explicitly reserves the right to amend, supplement or delete parts of pages or the entire presentation without separate notification or to cease publication temporarily or on a permanent basis.
Cross-references and links
In the case of direct or indirect cross-references to third-party web pages (“hyperlinks ”) outside the author’s sphere of responsibility, an obligation in respect of liability would solely come into force where the author had knowledge of the content, and it would be technically possible and could be reasonably expected for same to prevent usage in the case of unlawful content. The author hereby explicitly declares that at the time of creation of the link no illegal content could be identified on the pages forming the subject of the link. The author has no influence whatsoever on the current or future design, content or authorship of the linked/cross-referenced pages. He thus hereby explicitly distances himself from all contents of all linked/cross-referenced pages which were amended after creation of the link. This declaration shall apply to all links and cross-references included in his own Internet presentation and to third-party entries in guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists set up by the author. As regards illegal, incorrect or incomplete contents and in particular prejudice resulting from the use or failure to use such available information sole liability shall rest with the provider of the page to which reference is made, and not with the person merely making reference to the respective publication by means of links.
