§1 Contents of the website
ECE assumes no liability whatsoever for the updating, accuracy, completeness or quality of the provided information. Claims to liability against ECE as a result of material or other loss or damage caused by the use or non-use of the provided information are inadmissible to the extent that ECE is not provably and deliberately responsible for such damage. In this connection, ECE emphasises that some of the data is based on expert opinions and information of third parties. The contents do not constitute a contractual offer. ECE explicitly reserves the right to modify, supplement or delete parts of the website or the entire website or to temporarily or permanently suspend publication without prior announcement.
§2 References and links
ECE assumes no liability whatsoever for direct or indirect links to third-party websites that are outside ECE's sphere of responsibility unless ECE is aware of the illegality of the content and can be reasonably expect to - and has the technical means to - prevent use of such sites.
ECE therefore states explicitly that it did not possess knowledge of any illegal contents on the linked pages. ECE has no influence whatsoever on the current and future make-up and content of the linked pages and sites that were modified after the link was made; nor does ECE monitor the content of these pages and sites. This applies to all links and references on ECE's own website to third-party content as well as to third-party entries in the guestbooks, discussion forums and mailing lists set up by the author. The provider of the site to which the link leads (and not the party that provides links to the said content) is solely liable for illegal, incorrect or incomplete contents and in particular for loss or damage arising from use or non-use of such information.
§3 Legal effect of this exclusion of liability
This exclusion of liability is to be considered an integral part of the website that includes the link to this page. If parts of this text or individual formulations do not comply with, no longer comply with, or do not entirely comply with the valid legal regulations, this will not affect the content or validity of the remaining parts of the document.
§4 Copyright and trademark protection
In all publications, the author endeavours to respect the copyright of the featured graphics, animations, photos and texts, to use his own graphics, animations, photos and texts or to make use of non-protected graphics, animations, photos and texts.
All the brand names and trade marks named on the website and (where applicable) protected by third parties are fully subject to the provisions of the respective valid regulations on brand names and trademarks and to the proprietary rights of the respective registered owners. The fact that brands and marks are named should not mislead the reader into assuming that brand names are not protected by the rights of third parties!
The copyright for information published by ECE or compiled by ECE's subcontractors lies exclusively with ECE. Duplication or use of such graphics, animations, photos and texts in other electronic or print publications is only permitted with the explicit, written consent of ECE.
§5 Extrajudicial settlement of disputes
The ECE is neither willing nor obliged to participate in dispute resolution procedures before a consumer arbitration board.
