Disclaimer of Warranty (Exemption from Liability)

2.1 Capacity of Online Offerings/Quotes

The author shall not be held responsible whatsoever for the recentness, correctness, completeness, or quality of provided information. Liability claims against the author, which pertain to damages of a material or intangible nature, which are stated to be a result of the use or disuse, as the case may be, of the information presented, or through the use of allegedly faulty and incomplete data, are strictly prohibited, provided that the author’s pages contain no demonstrably deliberate or grossly negligent faults. All offers/quotes are subject to confirmation and are non-binding. The author reserves the right to change, amend, or cancel sections of pages or of the entire offer/quote without special/separate announcement, or to terminate the publication either temporarily or permanently.


2.2 References and Links

By direct or indirect reference to external websites ("Hyperlinks"), which lie outside the author’s sphere of accountability, a commitment of liability will only become effective if it can be shown that the author had knowledge of the contents and that it was technically and reasonably possible for him to anticipate their utilization in deliberate concomitance with illegal matters. The author hereby explicitly declares that at the time of this document’s inception no illegal content was readily apparent at the provided linked sites. In current and future compositions, the author has no influence whatsoever over the content or the authorship of the linked/associated pages. Therefore, the author hereby distances himself emphatically from all content on all linked/associated pages which may be, or were altered after the existing links were established. This declarative statement is also true and applicable for all content within the context of the author’s own Internet offers/quotes, which may contain links and references, as well as for external entries in which the author utilizes guest books, discussion forums, and mailing lists. As pertains to illegal, erroneous, or incomplete content and, in particular, for damages that arise from the use or non-use of any information of such nature that may be presented, the provider of the site, on which such reference is made, is solely responsible, and not such party that merely referenced links to the publication in question.

 

2.3 Copyright and Trademark

The author desires, in all publications, to respect the copyright of any graphics, sound files, video sequences, or texts which may be utilized, to utilize his own graphics, sound files, video sequences or texts, or to reutilize license-free graphics, sound files, video sequences, or texts. Everything contained within the Internet offerings that is not owned by the author is attributed, if necessary through third-party protective marks and trademarks, and conforms absolutely with the provisions of the respective current trademarks and property rights of the current registered owner. The sole basis for the statement of this position is to prevent the formation of any conclusion to the effect that trademarks should not be protected through third-party rights. The copyright of self-rendered objects remains exclusively with the author of the pages. Any duplication or utilization of such graphics, sound files, video sequences or texts in other electronic or printed publications, without the explicit consent of the author, is strictly prohibited.

 

2.4 Privacy

Utilizations within the scope of the masthead or promulgation of comparable details, including contact information such as postal address, telephone, and/or fax number, as well as email addresses to third parties for the transmission of such information not explicitly solicited is hereby prohibited. Legal measures are expressly reserved to be taken against the senders of so-called spam-mails by infringement upon this prohibition.

 

2.5 Legal effect of this warranty disclaimer

This warranty disclaimer is to be regarded as an integral constituent of all internet offerings, and all references shall be made solely to this document. This shall remain the case unless sections or individual formulations of this text should no longer correspond or no longer be in complete accordance with the effective legal position, in which case the remaining sections of this document, in both substance and validity shall thenceforth remain unaffected.
