Liability claims against the author referring to material or idealistic damage having been caused by the use or non-use of the information given and/or by the use of incorrect and incomplete information, are in principle impossible, if on the part of the author any intentional or gross negligence can be proved.

2. References and links
As for direct or indirect references to strange internet sides ("Links") lying outside of the area of responsibility of the author, liability would have to be taken over only if the author has knowledge of the contents and if it is technically possible and reasonable for him to prevent the use in the case of illegal contents. The author expressly declares that at the time of the link setting no illegal contents were recognizable on the sides being subject of the links. The author does not have any influence on the current and future organization, the contents or the authority of the sides linked. Therefore he hereby dissociates himself expressly from all contents of all pages linked which have been changed after the link setting. This statement applies to all links and references set within the author’s own internet offer as well as to strange entries in guest books, panels and mailing lists furnished by the author. For illegal, incorrect or incomplete contents and especially for damage resulting from the use or non-use of such kind of information given, the offerer of the pages having been referred to, is exclusively responsible and not the author who only refers to the respective publication by a link.
