1. Contents of Website
The author assumes no liability for the contents' quality, nor does he guarantee that the information provided is complete, correct, and/or up-to-date. Liability claims of a material or intangible value against the author, which are due to usage or non-usage of the information presented on the website, or respectively are due to the usage of erroneous or incomplete information, are hereby excluded, insofar as the author did not act demonstrably deliberately or with gross negligence. All offers are non-binding and subject to change. The author reserves the right to alter, supplement, or delete parts or all of the information presented on the website without prior notice. He also reserves the right to take the publication offline temporarily or permanently.
2. References and Links
In cases of direct or indirect references to other websites („Hyperlinks“) which lie outside of the author's responsibility, the author is only liable if he is informed about the contents of the website and it is technically possible and reasonable for him to prevent usage in case the website publishes illegal content. The author explicitly declares that no illegal content was visible on the linked websites at the time the link was set on his website. The author has no influence whatsoever on the current and future design, contents, or copyright of the linked website(s). Therefore he expressly dissociates himself from all contents of all linked websites which have been altered since the links were set. This statement is valid for all links and references made within the author's own internet presence as well as for external comments made in the author's guestbooks, discussion forums, link lists, mailing lists, and in all other forms of databases with external writing access. Only the owner of the website is liable for illegal, incorrect, or incomplete content, and especially for damages resulting from the usage or non-usage of such information, whereas the owner of the website linking to such content is not liable.
3. Copyright And Trademark Law
The author aims to respect the copyrights of all graphics, sound documents, video sequences, and texts used in his publications, to use his own graphics, sound documents, video sequences, and texts, or to use unlicensed graphics, sound documents, video sequences, and texts. All trademarks and brandnames which are named on this website and protected by third parties are absolutely subject to the regulations of the respective copyright law and to the ownership rights of the incorporated owners. It cannot be assumed that trademarks are not protected by third parties simply because they are named! The copyright for objects created by the author remains with the author, even if the objects are published. Duplicating or using such graphics, sound documents, video sequences, and texts in other electronic or printed publications is not allowed without the author's explicit permission.
4. Data Protection
In cases where it is possible to enter personal or business data on our internet presence (Email addresses, names, postal addresses), then these data are entered explicitly voluntarily by the user. Usage and payment of all offered services is – insofar as it is technically and reasonably possible – also possible without entering such data, or by entering anonymous data, for example via a pseudonym. The usage of contact data such as postal addresses, telephone or fax numbers, as well as email addresses published in the imprint or in other places to send unsolicited information is not permitted. We reserve the right to take legal action against the sender(s) of such so-called spam mails in cases of violation of this prohibition.

6. Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analyzing service provided by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called "Cookies", meaning text files which are saved on your computer and enable an analyzation of your usage of the website. The information generated by the Cookie about your usage of this website is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and saved there. In case IP anonymisation is activated for this website, your IP address will first be shortened within any EU-member state or in other states that are party to the European Economic Agreement (EEA). Only in exceptional cases will the IP address be shortened after it is transmitted to a server in the USA. Google will use this information to evaluate your usage of the website in order to generate reports about website usage for the website operator, and to render other services related to website usage and internet usage. Google will under no circumstances combine your IP address with other data collected by Google. You can prevent the Cookies' installation by making an appropriate setting in your Browser; however, in this case we must inform you that you may not be able to fully use all of the website's functions. Furthermore, you can prevent the collection of data generated by the Cookie and correlated to your use of the website (incl. Your IP address) by Google as well as Google's processing of your data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the link below (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de).
You will find more information about this under http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de and under http://www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/privacyoverview.html (general Information about Google Analytics and data protection). We hereby point out that on this website, Google Analytics has been extended by the code "gat._anonymizeIp();", in order to guarantee an anonymised collection of IP addresses (so-called IP Masking).
We additionally use Google Analytics to statistically evaluate data from AdWords and the Double-Click-Cookie. If you don't want your data evaluated in this manner, you can deactivate the function via the Ads preferences manager (http://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/?hl=de).
