All offers are subject to confirmation and non-binding. The Operator expressly reserves the right to change, amend or cancel the entire offer or some of the pages and to temporarily or definitely discontinue the publication without any special announcements.
2. References and links
As regards direct and indirect references to external websites ("hyperlinks") that are outside the responsibility of the Operator, liability would only be assumed if the Operator was aware of their content and it was technically possible and acceptable for her to prevent their use if they had any illegal content.
The Operator hereby expressly declares that at the time the link was placed, no illegal content was detected on the pages to be linked. The Operator has no influence whatsoever on the present and future design, the content or authorship of the linked pages. Therefore, she hereby expressly dissociates herself from all contents of all linked pages that were changed after the link was placed. This statement applies to all links and references placed within the Operator’s own Internet offer and to references as well as for entries by others in the guest books, discussion forums, link directories, mailing lists and any other forms of databases set up by the Operator to the content of which external write access is possible. The sole responsibility for illegal, incorrect or incomplete contents and in particular for damages arising out of the use of non-use of information presented in this manner lies with the provider of the page the reference was made to and not with the party that only refers to the respective publication through links.
Despite thorough review of the content, the Operator shall not accept any liability for the content of external links. The responsibility for the linked pages exclusively lies with their operators. All names, terms, symbols and graphics used here may be trademarks or brand names owned by their legal proprietors. The rights of all mentioned and used trademarks and brand names exclusively lie with their respective owners.

4. Data protection
Where the Internet offer allows for entering personal or business data (e-mail addresses, names, addresses), such data is supplied by the User on an explicitly voluntary basis. To the extent this is technically possible and acceptable, our service may also be made use of and paid for without supplying such data or by supplying anonymized data or a pseudonym. The use of the contact data published in the scope of the legal information of the website or any similar information such as postal addresses, telephone and fax numbers as well as e-mail addresses by third parties for the transmission of any information that has not been expressly requested is not allowed.
