1. Content of the online offer
The author assumes no liability for the up-to-datedness, accuracy, completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims against the author which pertain to material or non-material damages resulting from the use or non-use of the information provided or the use of incorrect and incomplete information are excluded in principle, insofar as the author has not committed verifiable intent or gross negligence.
All offers are subject to confirmation and non-binding. The author expressly reserves the right to change, supplement or delete sections of the pages or temporarily or permanently suspend the publication without prior notice.

2. References and links
Liability for direct or indirect references to third party websites (hyperlinks) outside the author’s scope of responsibility shall only be assumed if the author is aware of the content and if it would have been technically possible and reasonable to prevent the use in case of illegal content.
The author herewith expressly declares that, at the time the link was placed, there was no visible illegal content on the linked pages. The author has no influence on the current or future design, content or authorship of the linked pages. Therefore, he/she distances him/herself expressly from all content of all linked sites that are altered after the link is placed. This determination applies for all links and references within this site’s internet offer as well as for third-party entries in guest books, discussion forums, link directories, mailing lists and all other forms of databases set up by the author that can be externally accessed with write access rights. Solely the provider of the linked site is liable for illegal, incorrect or incomplete content and in particular for damages resulting from the use or disuse of such presented information, not the person who simply references the respective publication via links.
