The author accepts no liability whatsoever for the currentness, correctness, completeness or the quality of the information provided. Liability claims against the author relating to damage of a material or notional kind caused by the use or non-use of the information offered or by the use of incorrect and incomplete information, are excluded as a matter of principle unless the author can be proven to have acted deliberately or with gross negligence.

Where direct or indirect links (ìhyperlinksî) are set to external websites that lie exclusively outside the authorís area of responsibility, the author can be held liable exclusively in the case where the author is aware of the contents of those websites and where it would be technically possible and reasonable for him to prevent use in the case of illegal contents. The author hereby expressly declares that no illegal contents were recognisable on the pages linked to at the time of setting the links. The author has no influence whatsoever on the current and future design, contents or authorship of the pages linked to.

The provider of the page linked to is solely liable for illegal, incorrect or incomplete contents and in particular for damage resulting from the use or non-use of such information, not the entity that merely refers to the respective publication via links.
