The contents of this website have been created with the greatest care. However, the site owner assumes no guarantee for the accuracy, completeness and up-to-date nature of the content provided. The use of the contents of the website is done at the user's own risk. Articles marked with the name of the author only reflect the author's opinion and not always the opinion of the site owner. The mere use of the site owner's website does not lead to a contractual relationship being established between the user and the site owner.

The site owner has no influence on the current and future design and the content of the linked pages. Adding external links does not mean that the site owner adopts the content behind the reference or link as its own. Continual checks of the external links are not feasible for the site owner without a specific reference to legal violations. In the event of awareness of legal violations, these external links are, however, immediately deleted.
