Liability

1. Content of the online offering

The authors provide no warranty regarding the timeliness, accuracy, completeness or quality of the information provided. Any liability claims against the author, which relate to a physical or emotional injury caused by the use or non-use of the information provided or by the use of erroneous and incomplete information, are generally disclaimed, to the extent there is no evidence that the author acted with intent or gross negligence.

All offers are non-binding. The author expressly reserves the right, without any special advance notice, to modify, delete, or temporarily or permanently stop the publication of, some of the pages or the total offering. Despite careful processing, no liability can be assumed for the content.

 

2. Cross references and links

With respect to direct or indirect references to third party websites (‘Links’), which lie outside the author's sphere of responsibility, the author will be liable only if it was aware of the content and it would have been technically feasible and reasonable for it to prevent the use in the case of illegal content. The author hereby expressly represents that at the time that the Link was inserted, the linked pages in question were free and clear of any illegal content. The author furthermore represents that it had no influence on the current or future design or the content of the linked pages. Thus, it hereby expressly distances itself from all content on all linked pages, which were modified after the Link was inserted. This determination applies to all Links and references inserted in the author's own Internet offering and applies to third party entries in guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists that had been set up by the author. With respect to illegal, erroneous or incomplete content and specifically with respect to damages, which occur from the use or non-use of such offered information, only the provider of the page to which the reference is made shall be liable and not the person who simply published the Link. 

 

3. Copyright

The author endeavors in all publications to comply with the copyrights to the graphics, audio files, video sequences and text that are used, to use its own generated graphics, audio files, video sequences and text or to rely on license-free graphics, audio files, video sequences and text. The author of the pages shall retain exclusive copyright ownership of the published material generated by the author itself. Any reproduction or use of such graphics, audio files, video sequences and texts in any other electronic or print publications is prohibited without the express consent of the author. 

 

4. Contact

No client-firm relationship will be established by merely contacting the firm via email, telephone or telefax. In the absence of a more extensive agreement, you will not be obligated to pay a fee and we will not be obligated to commence any work.  

 

5. Legal validity of this liability disclaimer

This liability disclaimer must be viewed as part of the Internet offering from which reference is made to this page. If any portions of, or phrasing in, this text do not or no longer completely comply with the applicable legal situation existing from time to time, then the content and validity of the remaining portions of this document shall not be affected thereby.
