1. Content of the website
The author assumes no responsibility whatsoever for the information provided being up to date, accurate or complete nor for its quality. Liability claims against the author pertaining to damages of a material or intellectual nature caused by the use or non-use of the information provided or the use of inaccurate and incomplete information are strictly excluded, provided there is no demonstrably deliberate fault or grossly negligent fault on the part of the author. All offers are subject to confirmation and not binding. The author expressly reserves the right to alter, to complete or to delete parts of the pages or the entire offer without special notice or to cancel the publication thereof temporarily or irrevocably.

2. Cross references and links
In the case of direct or indirect cross references to third-party Internet sites (links) that do not lie within the author's responsibility, compulsory liability would come into force exclusively if the author was aware of the contents and it was possible and reasonable for him in technical terms to prevent usage in the case of illegal contents. The author therefore declares expressly that at the time of inserting the links the pages thus linked were free of illegal contents. The author exerts no influence whatsoever on the current and future design nor on the contents of the linked/referenced pages. He therefore herewith dissociates himself expressly from all contents of all linked/referenced pages that were altered after the insertion of the links. This declaration applies to all links and cross references contained within his own Internet site as well as to third-party posts made in guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists created by the author. The sole person liable for illegal, inaccurate or incomplete contents and in particular for damages resulting from the use or non-use of information thus provided shall be the provider of the site referred to, not the person merely referring to the publication in question via links.

3. Trademark and copyright
The author commits to respecting the copyrights of diagrams, sound files, video clips and texts used in all publications, to using diagrams, sound files, video clips and texts produced by him or to having recourse to unlicensed diagrams, sound files, video clips and texts. All brand names and trade marks cited on the Internet site and, where applicable, protected by third parties shall be entirely subject to the provisions of the relevant applicable trade mark law and the relevant registered proprietors' titles. The simple mentioning of brand names on its own does not warrant the conclusion that these are not protected by third-party rights! The copyright in published objects created by the author himself shall remain with the pages' author. Reproducing or using such diagrams, sound files, video clips and texts in other electronic or printed publications without the author's express consent is not permitted.

Should parts or individual wordings contained within this document not comply with current law, or no longer comply or not comply entirely, then the remaining parts of the document shall not be affected thereby in their contents and their validity.
