The author cannot be held responsible for timeliness, accuracy, completeness or quality of the provided information.

2. References and links

n connection with direct or indirect references to external websites (hyperlinks) for which the author is not responsible, the author may only be held responsible, if he has knowledge of the content or it may be technically possible and reasonable for him to avoid the use of illegal content. The author hereby declares that at the time of setting the link there was no illegal content visible on the linked websites. The author has no influence on the current or future design of the linked websites, their content and authorship. The author can therefore not be held responsible for any content which was changed after the time of linking. This is especially valid for all the links on the author's own offer as well as for contribution by third parties in guestbooks, discussion forums, link lists, mailing lists, or other forms of data bases which may be used by third parties. For illegal, wrong or incomplete data and especially for damage which may result from the use or non-use of such data, it is exclusively the provider of the website who is to be held responsible and not the individual who set the link.
