The author assumes no liability for the accuracy, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided.

2. References and links
For direct or indirect links to third party websites (“hyperlinks”) which connect to content outside of the author's control, the author would only be liable in any case in which the author has knowledge of the third party website's contents and it would be technically feasible and reasonable for the author to block access in any such case in which illegal contents are included.
The author hereby explicitly declares that at the time the contents were linked, no illegal contents were recognizable on the linked sites. The author has no influence over the current and future design, contents or intellectual property of the linked sites. Therefore, the author hereby explicitly waives any responsibility for the contents of any linked sites which may have been modified after the link had been set. This waiver is valid for all links included in this website as well as for any entries in guest books, discussion forums, link directories, mailing lists and all other forms of databases established by the author which allow external influence. In any case of illegal, falsified or incomplete contents leading to damages arising from the use or non-use of such information, the liability is borne solely by the provider of the website to which the reference was made, not the provider of the website which merely publishes links to said website.
