Concept and design
1. Content of online offerings
The author accepts no liability of any kind for the currency, accuracy, completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims against the author relating to material or intellectual damage caused by the use or non-use of the information provided or by the use of faulty and incomplete information are always excluded unless evidence of the author’s deliberate or gross negligence can be provided.
All offerings are subject to change without notice and are non-binding. The author expressly reserves the right to modify, supplement or delete parts of the pages or the entire offering or to temporarily or permanently suspend publication without separate notice.
2. References and links
In the case of direct or indirect links to third-party websites ("hyperlinks") which are outside the author’s sphere of responsibility, an obligation under liability would arise only in the case where the author has knowledge of the content and it would be technically possible for him and reasonable to expect him to prevent use in the event of illegal content.
The author hereby expressly states that at the time the link was created, no illegal content was detectable on the pages for linking. The author has no influence of any kind on the current and future design, content or copyright of the linked pages, so he hereby expressly distances himself from all content of all linked pages which were modified after the link was created. This statement applies to all the links and references created within our own Internet offering and to third-party entries in guest books, discussion forums, link directories, mailing lists and all other forms of database set up by the author, the content of which may have write access from the outside. The supplier of the page to which reference is made, not the individual who simply refers to the relevant publication via links, has sole responsibility for illegal, incorrect or incomplete content and especially for damages arising from use or non-use of information provided in this way.
3. Copyright and trademark law
The author has made every effort to acknowledge copyright of images, graphics, sound clips, video sequences and text used in all publications, to use images, graphics, sound clips, video sequences and texts of his own or to have recourse to licence-free graphics, sound clips, video sequences and texts.
All brand names and trademarks mentioned within the Internet offering, and in some cases protected by third parties, are subject without restriction to the terms of the trademark law applicable in each case and to the laws of ownership of the owners registered in each case. The conclusion should not be drawn on the basis of naming alone that trademarks are not protected by the rights of third parties!
The copyright for published items compiled by the author remains solely with the author of the pages. Reproduction or use of such graphics, sound clips, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without the express consent of the author.
4. Data protection
Insofar as there is the option of entering personal or commercial data (e-mail addresses, names, addresses) within the Internet offering, these data are released by the user on an expressly voluntary basis. Personal data which you give us via our website or by e-mail will be used only for correspondence with you and only for the purpose for which you have made the data available to us. We assure you that we will not pass your personal data to third parties unless we are legally obliged to do so or you have previously given your consent to this.
Insofar as technically possible and reasonable, the use of and payment for all services offered is permitted even without the provision of such data/provision of anonymized data or a pseudonym. Use by third parties of the contact data published in the site information or comparable information, such as addresses, telephone and fax numbers and e-mail addresses, to transmit information which has not expressly been requested is not permitted. Rights are expressly reserved to take legal steps against senders of so-called spam mails if this prohibition is breached.
5. Use of Facebook social plugins
This offering uses social plugins ('plugins') of the social network facebook.com operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ('Facebook'). These plugins are marked with the Facebook logo (white 'f' on blue tile or a 'thumbs-up' symbol) or are labelled 'Facebook Social Plugin'. The list of and appearance of Facebook social plugins is documented here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/. If a user calls up a page of this offering including such a plugin, his browser will establish a direct connection with the Facebook servers. The plugin content is transferred by Facebook straight to your browser and incorporated into the web page by the browser. The supplier consequently has no influence on the scope of the data Facebook collects using this plugin, and is informing users to the best of his knowledge. By incorporating the plugins, Facebook is informed of the fact that that a user has called up the respective page of the offering. If the user is logged into his Facebook account, Facebook can assign the visit to his Facebook account. If users interact with the plugins, for example by activating the Like Button or leaving a comment, your browser will transmit the respective information straight to Facebook where the information will be stored. If a user is not a member of Facebook, it may still be possible for Facebook to find out the user's IP address and store it. According to Facebook, only an anonymised IP address is stored in Germany. The aim and scope of data acquisition and further processing and use of these data by Facebook and the relevant rights and setting options to protect the user's privacy can be found in Facebook's data protection information: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/. If the user is a member of Facebook and does not wish Facebook to collect data about him in connection with this offering and to link these data with his membership information held by Facebook, he will need to log out of Facebook before visiting the website.
This offering uses buttons from the Twitter service. These buttons are supplied by Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. They can be identified by terms like 'Twitter' or 'Follow' in conjunction with a stylised blue bird. Using the buttons, it is possible to share an article or page of this offering via Twitter or to follow the supplier on Twitter. If a user calls up a page of this website including such a button, his browser will establish a direct connection with the Twitter servers. The content of the Twitter buttons is transferred by Twitter straight to the user’s browser. The supplier consequently has no influence on the scope of the data Twitter collects using this plugin, and is informing users to the best of his knowledge. According to this, only the user's IP address and the URL of the respective web page are transmitted when obtaining the button, and these will not be used for purposes other than displaying the button. More information about this can be found in Twitter's data protection statement at http://twitter.com/privacy.
