The Author shall assume no warranty for up-to-dateness, correctness, completeness or quality of the provided information.

References and Links

In case of direct or indirect references to the websites ("hyperlinks") of others, which lie outside the scope of responsibility of the Author, a liability obligation would only become effective if the Author has knowledge of the contents and it were technically possible and reasonable for him to prevent usage in the case of illicit contents. The author herewith expressly declares that no illegal contents were recognizable on the websites to be linked at the time the links were set. The Author has no influence at all on the current and future design, content or copyright of the linked sites. Therefore he explicitly dissociates himself from all content of linked sites that have been amended after the link was set. This statement applies to all links and references set within the company’s own website as well as for the entries of others in guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists established by the Author. The provider of the website referred to bear the sole responsibility for illegal, incorrect or incomplete contents, and in particular for damage resulting from the use or non-use of information offered in this way, and not the operator of the website, who only refers to the respective website with links.
