Liability Disclaimer

1. Content of the Online Pages

The author (Museum Ritter) accepts no responsibility for the topicality, correctness, completeness and quality of the information provided. Liability claims against the author relating to damage of a material or non-material kind arising from the use or non-use of the information provided or through the use of incorrect and/or incomplete information are strictly excluded insofar as the author has not acted in a demonstrably wilful or grossly negligent manner.
All information is subject to change and is non-binding. The author expressly reserves the right to change the pages or indeed the entire content without prior notice, to augment or delete it, and to cease publication on an interim or permanent basis.


2. References and Links

In the case of direct or indirect references to external websites ("hyperlinks") that lie outside the bounds of the author’s responsibility, an obligation to assume liability would solely apply as and when the author is cognisant of the contents, and when it would have been technically possible and reasonable to expect the author to prevent their use in cases of unlawful content.
The author herewith explicitly declares that at the time the links were created, no illegal contents could be detected on the linked pages. The author has no influence whatsoever on the current and future design, contents and authorship of the linked/referenced sites, and therefore distances himself expressly from all contents on all linked sites that were altered after the link was established. This statement applies to all links and all references made as part of the site’s own internet content, and also to third-party entries in guest books, discussion forums, link directories, mailing lists set up by the author, as well as all other forms of database whose contents are amenable to written change by outside parties. Sole liability for illegal, erroneous or incomplete contents and above all for damage arising from the use or non-use of such proffered information lies with the provider of the page to which the link refers, and not with the person or body who merely refers to the publication via a link.

3. Copyright and Trademark Rights

In all cases the author endeavours to observe copyright on the graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts that are used, and further to employ graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts of his own making, or to make use of graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts from the public domain.
All brand names and trademarks that are named in the author's Internet content and are protected where applicable by third parties are subject without limitation to the terms of the respective copyright laws and rights of ownership. The mere naming of a trademark on these pages is not sufficient for anyone to conclude that it is not protected by the rights of third parties!
The copyright for published items created personally by the author remains solely with the author of these pages. Any reproduction or use of such graphics, audio documents, video sequences or texts in other electronic or printed publications is expressly prohibited without the prior permission of the author.
