Alternative Dispute Resolution (B2C)
The EU Commission has created an internet platform for the online resolution of disputes concerning contractual obligations arising from online contracts (ODR platform). We are not obliged to participate in dispute resolution proceedings before a consumer arbitration board, nor are we prepared to do so. You can find the ODR platform at the following link: http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/
1. Content of online offer
The author assumes no liability for the up-to-dateness, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims against the author which refer to damage or loss of material or non-material nature caused by the use or non-use of the information offered, or alternatively by the use of incorrect and incomplete information, shall in principle be inadmissible unless the damage or loss is due to wilful intent or gross negligence on the part of the author.
All offers are subject to confirmation and without obligation. The author expressly reserves the right to modify, supplement or delete parts of pages or the complete offer without specific advance notice, or to suspend publication temporarily or permanently.
2. References and links
In the case of direct or indirect references to external websites (hyperlinks) which are outside the range of the author's responsibility, a liability obligation shall only come into force if the author has knowledge of the contents and it is technically possible and reasonable for him to prevent use thereof when the contents are illegal.
The author herewith expressly declares that at the time the links were created there were no illegal contents apparent on the pages to which links were to be provided. The author has no influence whatever on the current and future design, contents or authorship of the linked or connected pages. He therefore expressly dissociates himself from all the contents of all the linked or connected pages which were modified after the links were created. This statement applies to all the links and references created inside his own internet offer and to external postings in guest books, discussion forums, lists of links and mailing lists set up by the author and in all other forms of database to whose content external writing access is possible. Liability for illegal, incorrect or incomplete contents and in particular for damage or loss resulting from the use of or failure to use such information offered shall be held solely by the provider of the page which was referred to, not by the party which only referred to the publication in question.
3. Copyright and trademark rights
The author endeavours to observe the copyrights of the materials used in all publications, namely graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts, to use the graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts created by himself and to make use of graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts which are not under licence.
All the trademarks and logos mentioned in the internet offer and, where applicable, protected by third parties shall be subject without exception to the provisions of the trademark law applicable at the time and to the property rights of the respective registered proprietors. It cannot be concluded from the mere mention of a trademark that it is not protected by the rights of third parties.
The copyright for published objects created by the author himself shall be held solely by the author. Reproduction or use of such graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted except with the author's express consent.
4. Legal validity of this disclaimer
This disclaimer must be regarded as a part of the internet offer from the website of which reference was made to this page. If parts or individual formulations of this text are not, or are no longer, or are not fully, in conformity with the law as currently applicable, this shall not affect the content or validity of the remaining parts of the document.
