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.

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.
