References and links
The owner will not be liable in respect of direct or indirect references to third party websites (so-called “hyperlinks”) that fall outside the owner’s area of responsibility unless the owner has knowledge of the content of these websites and it is possible and reasonable from a technical point of view for the owner to prevent use in relation to illegal content. The author hereby provides an express declaration that at the time at which the link was established there was no visible illegal content on the linked webpages. The author has no influence whatsoever over the current or future design, contents or copyright of the linked webpages. Accordingly, the author hereby expressly disassociates himself from the contents of all linked webpages that have been amended after the link was established. This statement applies to each and every link or reference that has been set up on the owner’s website, as well as to contributions by third parties in the guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists set up by the author. Liability for illegal, incorrect or incomplete content and in particular for damage arising from use or non-use of such information rests solely with the provider of such webpages, to which the user was linked, and not with the person who made the reference to the relevant publication via the links.
