References and links
In the case of direct or indirect references to third party websites (‘links’) which are beyond the sphere of responsibility of the author, liability obligation will be applicable solely if the author is aware of the contents and it is technically feasible and reasonably to be expected that he/she prevents usage in the case of illegal content. The author herewith explicitly declares that at the time of setting the link, no unlawful content was detected on the pages linked. The author has no influence whatsoever on the current and future creative design, contents or copyright of the linked pages. For this reason, the author disassociates him/herself from all linked pages which have been changed since the link was implemented. This statement applies to all links and cross-references established within the author’s own Internet presentation as well as to third-party entries in guestbooks, discussion forums and mailing lists set up by the author. The provider of the linked page alone shall be liable for illegal, faulty or incomplete content, and in particular for losses resulting from the use or non-use of information provided in this way.
