For direct or indirect references to external websites ("hyperlinks") which are outside the author's area of responsibility, liability would have effect only in those cases in which the author has notice of the contents and if it would be technically possible and reasonable for him to prevent use in case of illegal contents.

Hereby, the author expressly declares that no illegal contents were recognizable on the websites to be linked at the time of setting the links. The author has no influence whatsoever on the current and future design, contents or authorship of the linked websites. Therefore, he herewith expressly distances himself of all contents of any linked websites which were changed or modified after the time of setting the links. This declaration applies to any links set within his own online contents and to references as well as to third-party entries in guestbooks, discussion forums, link directories, mailing lists established by the author and to all other forms of databases to the contents of which external write access is possible. Only the provider of the website to which reference was made and not the person only making reference to the respective publication by links is liable for illegal, incorrect or incomplete contents and especially for damages arising from using or not using such offered information.
