1. Content

The author reserves the right not to be responsible for the topicality, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims regarding damage caused by the use of any information provided, including any kind of information which is incomplete or incorrect, will therefore be rejected.
All offers are not-binding and without obligation. Parts of the pages or the complete publication including all offers and information might be extended, changed or partly or completely deleted by the author without separate announcement.

2. Referrals and Links

The author is not responsible for any contents linked or referred to from his pages - unless he has full knowledge of illegal contents and would be able to prevent the visitors of his site from viewing those pages. If any damage occurs by the use of information presented there, only the author of the respective pages might be liable, not the one who has linked to these pages. Furthermore the author is not liable for any postings or messages published by users of discussion boards, guestbooks or mailinglists provided on his page.

3. Copyright

The author intended not to use any copyrighted material for the publication or, if not possible, to indicate the copyright of the respective object.
The copyright for any material created by the author is reserved. Any duplication or use of objects such as diagrams, sounds or texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without the author's agreement.

If the opportunity for the input of personal or business data (email addresses, name, addresses) is given, the input of these data takes place voluntarily.

Further Additions to the Disclaimer:
With its judgment from 12th May 1998, the district court of Hamburg decided that a person who places a link is responsible for the content of the linked page, if applicable. To avoid this, according to the district court, there must be an explicit alienation from third party contents. We hereby state that we can neither influence the content nor the layout of pages linked to all websites of the IWH, and explicitly alienate from all contents of linked pages. This statement does also apply to all pages connected through banners, buttons and other links on our websites.
