Liability claims against the author related to damage of material or notional type, which were caused by use or non-use of the information presented and/or caused by using incorrect and incomplete information are as a matter of principle excluded, inasmuch as there is no provable intentional or grossly negligent guilt on the side of the author.

The author expressly reserves the right to modify, add or delete content of the pages or the whole web-site without separate warning notification or temporarily or permanently cease the publication.
2.Cross reference and links
In case of direct or indirect cross references to external websites ("Hyperlinks"), which lay outside the area of responsibility of the author, an obligation to liability would become effective exclusively, if the author had knowledge of the contents and it was technically possible and reasonable for him to prevent the use in case of an illegal contents of the external web page. The author herewith expressly declares that at the time of the setting up of the link no illegal content on the page to be linked up was in evidence. The author has no influence on the current or future design-layout, the contents or the authorship of the linked-up or connected pages. He therefore, hereby, dissociates himself expressly from all contents of all linked/connected pages which have been changed since the setting of the link. This declarative statement is valid for all links and cross-references set within his own internet web-site as well as for outside entries in visitors’ books prepared by the author, discussion forums, link tables, mailing lists and in all other forms of databanks on whose contents external write access is possible. For illegal, incorrect or incomplete contents and especially for damages resulting from the use or non-use of such type of information offered, only the owner of the pages is liable, not the person who merely cross-referred to the web-page publication via links.
