Online Content

The author does not assume any guarantee for the timeliness, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims against the author based on damages of a material or immaterial nature resulting from the use or failure to use any of the information provided or from the use of incorrect or incomplete information are categorically excluded, provided there is no evidence of wilful intent or gross negligence on the part of the author. All content is subject to change and non-binding. The author reserves the express right to change, amend or delete sections of this website or its entire content without prior separate notice as well as to temporarily or permanently cease publication.

References and links

Any liability for direct or indirect references to third-party websites (“hyperlinks”) which are outside the author’s sphere of responsibility would be assumed solely in those cases in which the author had prior knowledge of their content and where it would have been technically feasible and reasonable to prevent the use of illegal content.The author hereby expressly declares that no illegal content could be identified on a page to which a link was to be made at the time said link was created. The author has no influence whatsoever on the current or future design or the content or authorship of linked pages. The author therefore expressly dissociates him/herself from all content on all linked pages which has been changed after the link was established. This declaration correspondingly applies to all links and references included on these website pages as well as to external entries made in guestbooks, discussion forums, lists of links and mailing lists set up by the author and to all other forms of databases which enable third-party write access. Liability for illegal, incorrect or incomplete content, and for damages resulting from the use or failure to use such information provided in particular, rests solely with the provider of the linked page, not the party which merely provided the link in its respective publication.

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google (officially known as Google Inc). Google Analytics uses so-called ‘cookies’, text files which are stored on your computer to assist in the analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually relayed to a Google server in the US and stored there. If you opt to activate IP anonymisation for this website, your IP address will be truncated within member states of the European Union or other parties to the EU Agreement on the Anonymisation of Data in the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be relayed to a Google server in the USA where it will then be truncated. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing the website operator with associated services in connection with use of this website and the internet. The IP address which is relayed by your browser as part of the Google Analytics process will not be associated with any other data held by Google.

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser software. However, we must point out that you may then be unable to use all features of this website. To prevent data generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) from being shared with and processed by Google, you may download and install the browser plug-in available via this link.

As an alternative to installing the browser add-on or within browsers on mobile devices, please click on this link to avoid detection by Google Analytics on this website in the future (the opt-out only works in your browser and only for this domain). In this case, an opt-out cookie will be stored on your device. If you delete your cookies in this browser, you will need to click on this link again.

More information on our Terms of Use and our Privacy Policy can be found at http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html and at http://www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/privacyoverview.html.

We confirm that Google Analytics has been expanded on this website by code gat._anonymizeIp(); to enable anonymous collection of IP addresses (so-called ‘IP masking’).

Use of Facebook plug-ins

This website uses plug-ins associated with the social network www.facebook.com which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (Facebook). When you call up pages on our website that have such a plug-in, this creates a connection to the Facebook servers and the plug-in appears on the web page as a result of being communicated to your browser. This then informs the Facebook server about which of our web pages you have visited. If you are logged in as a Facebook member, Facebook assigns this information to your personal Facebook account. When using the plug-in functions (for example, clicking on the Like button or posting a comment), this information is also assigned to your Facebook account. You can only prevent this by logging out of Facebook before using the plug-in.

For more information on the collection and use of data by Facebook, on your rights in this regard and on ways to protect your privacy, check the privacy policies of Facebook.
