1. Contents of the website

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

Liability claims made against the author which relate to loss of goodwill or material damage caused by the usage or non-usage of the featured information, or through the use of faulty and incomplete information are fundamentally excluded, unless it can be demonstrated that the author acted wilfully or was grossly negligent.

All offers are subject to change and are non-binding. The author expressly reserves the right to amend, supplement or delete parts of the website or the complete publication without prior notice or to cease publication temporarily or permanently.


2. References and links

Any liability for direct or indirect references to external web-sites ("hyperlinks"), which are outside the responsibility of the author, would only take effect if the author is aware of the content of the sites in question and if the author is in a position to, and has the technical capacity to, prevent the use of illegal contents.

The author hereby explicitly states that, at the time of setting the link, there was no evidence of illegal content on the respective web site. Sumitomo Electric Bordnetze declares that it has no influence over the current or future design, content or copyright of hyperlinked web pages. Therefore, Sumitomo Electric Bordnetze dissociates itself explicitly from all changes concerning the contents of linked pages that were made after the link was set. This disclaimer applies to all links and references within the web site created by the author as well as for links and references that are published by third parties in guestbooks, discussion forums and lists of links, mailing lists and all other forms of databases, which can be filled with content by external write access. For unlawful, faulty or incomplete contents and in particular for damages resulting from the usage or disregard of information presented in this manner, liability lies exclusively with the provider of the website to which reference is made and not with the party merely referring to such published material by means of links.


3. Intellectual property and trademark law

In all publications, the author strives to observe the copyright of the images, graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts used and to use its own images, graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts or to resort to license-free graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts.

All brands and trademarks mentioned as part of the internet offer and, where applicable, all brands and trademarks protected by third parties, are subject, without restrictions, to the regulations of the currently applicable law on trademarks and related signs as well as the rights of ownership by the registered owner. The mere fact that a trademark is mentioned must not lead to the conclusion that trademarks are not protected by third-party rights!

The copyright for published material created by the author remains the property of the author. Any reproduction or use of such graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permissible without the explicit approval of the author.


4. Data privacy protection

Provided that the possibility of entering personal or business details (i.e. e-mail addresses, names, postal addresses) exists within the Internet offer, the disclosure of such data on the part of the user is done on an expressly voluntary basis.

The use and payment for all services offered – inasmuch as this is technically possible and feasible – is also permitted without entering such data and/or anonymously entering data or by using an alias. Third-party use of contact details published as part of the imprint or comparable statements, such as postal addresses, telephone and fax numbers as well as e-mail addresses for the purpose of transmitting information that has not been expressly requested is not permitted. The author expressly reserves the right to take legal action against the senders of so-called spam mails in case of breaches of this prohibition.


5. Legal validity of this disclaimer

This disclaimer is deemed as part of the website from which the user was referred to this page. If parts or individual formulations of this text do not comply, no longer comply or completely comply with the current legal position, the remainder of the document shall not be affected by this, neither in terms of content nor validity.
