1. Online content
The author excludes all liability for the topicality, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims against the author related to damages of material or immaterial nature caused by the use or non-use of the presented information or by the use of defective or incomplete information are principally excluded, unless it can be proven that the damage was demonstrably a result of intention or gross negligence. All offers are subject to change and are without obligation. The author expressly reserves the right to change, supplement or delete parts of the pages or the entire offer without any particular announcement, or to discontinue or delete the publication temporarily or permanently.

2. References and links
The author is not liable for any direct or indirect references to external internet pages („links“) lying beyond the author‘s control and responsibility, unless the author has knowledge of such contents and it would be technically possible and reasonable to prevent the use in case of illegal contents. The author hereby expressly declares that at the time of setting the links there was no indication of any illegal content on the linked pages. The author has no influence whatsoever neither on the current and future design nor on the contents and copyright of any linked website. Therefore we explicitly dissociate ourselves from the entire content of any linked pages which may be modified after the placing of the link by the author. This declaration applies to all links and references included within our own website and references as well as for external entries in guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists. In respect of unlawful, inaccurate or incomplete content and in particular loss or damage that arises due to the use or non-use of such information, only the providers of the website to which the link relates may be held liable and not the provider of the website whose author has only set a link to the website in question.  

3. Intellectual property, copyright and trademark law
The author endeavours to respect intellectual property interests and rights as to graphics, sound files, video sequences and texts used in all its publications and graphics, sound files, video sequences and texts the provider of this website has created itself or to use licence-free graphics, sound files, video sequences and texts. All trademarks and brands identified on this website and possibly subject to third parties‘ rights are unrestrictedly subject to the regulations of the appropriate regulations of trademark law and the property rights of their registered owners.  Simple reference to such trademarks does not justify the conclusion that such trademarks are not protected by the rights of third parties! The intellectual property right or copyright for any published material created by the author of this website is reserved to the author. Any duplication or use of such graphics, sound files, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without the express prior approval of the author.  

4. Data protection and privacy policy

4a. Extent to which personal data is processed
We only ever collect and use personal data of our users to the extent to which this is necessary to provide a fully functional website and our contents and services. The regular collection and use of personal data of our users is only ever made with the user's consent. One exception to this rule applies in cases in which, for factual reasons, it is not possible to obtain the user's prior consent, and the processing of this data is permitted by law.

4b. Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject to process his or her personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 point a of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) shall serve as the legal basis for the processing of personal data.
Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 point b of the GDPR shall serve as the legal basis for the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party. This shall also apply to processing necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures.
Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 point c of the GDPR shall serve as the legal basis.
Should it be necessary to process personal data in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person, Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 point d of the GDPR shall serve as the legal basis.
Should processing be necessary to protect the legitimate interests of our company or a third party and such interests are not overridden by the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject, then Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 point f of the GDPR shall serve as the legal basis for processing.

4c. Data erasure and storage period
The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose for which it has been saved ceases to apply. Further, data may also be stored if provided for by European or national legislators in Union directives, laws or other regulations, to which the data controller is subject. The data will also be deleted or blocked at such time as the storage period prescribed by the designated standards expires, unless it is necessary for the data to be stored for a further period for the conclusion or performance of a contract.

This disclaimer is to be regarded as part of the internet publication from which you were referred.  If sections or individual terms of this statement no longer comply in part or in whole with legislation currently in force, the content and validity of the remaining sections shall remain unaffected thereby.
