Terms of Use

1. Website content

The publisher of this website assumes no liability whatsoever for the up-to-dateness, correctness, completeness, or quality of the information provided. As a basic principle, liability claims directed against the publisher due to damage of a material or intellectual nature that has been caused by the use or failure to use the information provided or by the use of erroneous and/or incomplete information are excluded unless the publisher is demonstrably at fault due to wrongful intent or gross negligence. All content offered is subject to change and non-binding. The publisher expressly reserves the right to change, amend, or delete portions of the webpages included herein, or the entire website, without special notice or to discontinue publication of the website for a limited period or indefinitely.

2. Links

In the case of direct or indirect links to third-party Internet sites that lie outside of the scope of the publisher’s responsibility, the publisher would be liable only in the event that the publisher was aware of the content of such third-party sites and it would have been technically feasible and reasonable for the publisher to prevent use thereof in the event of illicit content. The publisher hereby expressly states that at the time at which the links were established, no illegal content was detected on the pages linked to. The publisher has no influence whatsoever on the current and future design, structure, content, or authorship of the pages linked to. The publisher therefore hereby expressly distances itself from all content on all pages linked to where such pages have been modified since the time at which the links were established. This stipulation applies to all links established within the publisher’s own website as well as to third-party entries in guest books, discussion forums, and mailing lists established by the publisher. The provider of the page linked to, not the party that links to the respective publication, bears sole liability for illegal, erroneous, or incomplete content, and particularly for damages arising as a result of the use or failure to use such information provided.

3. Copyright and trademark law

In all its publications, the publisher makes every effort to observe copyrights to the graphic images, audio files, video sequences, and texts used, to use graphic images, audio files, video sequences, and texts created by the publisher itself, or to rely on graphic images, audio files, video sequences, and texts available in the public domain. All brand names and trademarks mentioned in this website that may be protected by third parties are subject without limitation to the provisions of applicable trademark law and to the ownership rights of the respective registered holders. It may not be concluded solely from the fact that a trademark is mentioned that the trademark is not protected by third-party rights. The copyright for published objects created by the publisher itself remains vested solely in the publisher of the pages. Reproduction or use of such graphic images, audio files, video sequences, and/or texts in other electronic or printed publications is prohibited without the publisher’s express authorization.

4. Data protection

Although not currently active, there could be an option at any time within the website to enter personal or business data (e-mail addresses, names, addresses), in that case such data is divulged by the user on an expressly voluntary basis. Utilization of, and payment for, all services offered is – insofar as technically feasible and reasonable – permitted even without the provision of such data or upon provision of anonymized data or use of a pseudonym.

5. Legal validity of this disclaimer

This disclaimer is to be considered a part of the website that linked to it. Insofar as portions or individual clauses within this text should not, no longer, or not completely correspond to the applicable legal situation, the content and validity of the remaining portions of the document shall remain unaffected thereby.
