1. Content of the Online Offer

The author does not assume any liability concerning the topicality, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Any liability claims against the author, which refer to material or non-material damage, and which may be caused by the usage or non-usage of the information provided or, respectively, by the usage of any incorrect or incomplete information, is generally excluded unless in cases of evidenced willful or gross negligence on the author’s side. All offers are non-binding and non-obligatory. The author expressly reserves the right to modifications, amendments, or cancellations of the offer, in whole or in part, or to the temporary or final discontinuation of this publication without any prior notice.

2. References and Links

Where direct or indirect references to other websites (hyperlinks) are concerned, which lie beyond the sphere of responsibility of the author, an obligation to assume liability would take effect exclusively in the case of the author having knowledge of the content, and it having been technically feasible and reasonable for him to have prevented its use in the case of it having unlawful content. The author herewith explicitly declares that at the time of setting the link, no unlawful content could be detected on the pages linked. The author shall have no influence whatsoever on the current and future creative design, contents or copyright of the linked pages. He therefore explicitly disassociates himself herewith from all the content of all the linked pages that have been changed after setting the links. This statement shall be valid for all the links and references set within the scope of the author’s own Internet offer and also for entries by third persons in the guest books, discussion forums, mailing lists and other data bases set up by the author. Where unlawful, erroneous or incomplete content is concerned, especially damages arising from the usage or non-usage of the information offered, the provider of the page to which the reference is made shall be solely liable, and not the party who merely makes reference to the respective publication via links.

3. Copyrights and Protection of Identification/Trademarks

The author endeavors to observe the copyrights of the graphs, audio and video files and files/sequences and texts in all the publications, to use his own graphs, audio and video files/sequences and texts, or to have recourse to graphs, audio and video files/sequences and texts requiring no license. All the trademarks named in the Internet offer and, where applicable, those protected by third persons, are subject without restriction to the legal provisions of the respectively valid right to protected identification/trademarks and the rights of ownership of the respective registered owners. The fact that a trademark has merely been named shall not imply that trademarks are not protected by the rights of third persons! The copyright for any published items produced by the author himself shall remain solely with the author of these pages. Duplication or utilization of such graphs, audio, and video files/sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications shall be prohibited unless the author has granted his explicit consent.

This permission can, however, be revoked at any time in writing. The use and payment of all offered services are permitted – if and so far technically possible and reasonable – without specification of any personal data or under specification of anonymized data or an alias. The use of contact data such as postal addresses, telephone or fax numbers or email addresses or other comparable data published in cretancatalist.org or otherwise by third parties for the purpose of sending unsolicited information is prohibited. In the event of a breach of this prohibition, the right is expressly reserved to take legal action against the senders of spam e-mails.

This exemption from liability (disclaimer) shall be deemed as a part of the Internet offer, from which reference to this page has been made. If any parts or individual formulations of this text should fail to conform to the valid legal situation, or be no longer or not fully in conformity therewith, this shall not affect the content or validity of the remaining parts of the document.
