Disclaimers / Copyright:
1. Contents of website
RCD COMMUNICATION & DESIGN GmbH & Co. KG, hereinafter Author, accepts no liability of whatever kind for the timeliness, topicality, accuracy, completeness or quality of the information made available herein. Liability claims against the Author for damages of either a material or non-pecuniary nature resulting from the use, or non-use, of the information provided, or from the use of erroneous and incomplete information, shall be deemed inadmissible, unless wilful intent or a grossly negligent act on the part of the Author can be shown to have occurred. All offers are non-binding and without engagement. The Author expressly reserves the right to amend, supplement or delete sections of the pages, or the entire range of information provided, or to discontinue publication, either temporarily or permanently, without making any special announcement to this effect.
2. References and links
In the case of direct or indirect references to third-party webpages ("hyperlinks") lying outside the Author's sphere of responsibility, an obligation to accept liability shall be deemed to have arisen solely in the event that the Author is aware of the content of such pages, and Author could reasonably be expected, and is in possession of the necessary technical means, to prevent such use in the event that the content of such pages proves to be illicit. The Author hereby expressly declares that, at the time when the link was placed, there was no evidence of illicit content on the pages accessed by the link. The Author has no influence whatsoever on the current and future design, the contents, or the authorship of the linked/referenced pages. Accordingly, Author hereby expressly distances himself from the contents of all linked/referenced pages that have been amended since the link was first placed. This applies to all links and references placed inside the Author's own website, and to third-party entries in guestbooks, discussions forums and mailing lists put in place by the Author. Illicit, erroneous or incomplete contents and, most notably, loss or damage caused by the use, or non-use, of information offered in such manner shall be the sole liability of the operator of the site or page referred to, and not that of the site which merely refers to the respective publication by means of a link.
3. Copyright and labelling laws
In all publications, the Author shall make every effort to respect the copyrights of all graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts featured, to utilize self-produced graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts wherever possible, or to have recourse to non-proprietary graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts. All trademarks, logos and brands owned by third parties that may feature in the contents of the website are, without exception, subject to the provisions of the applicable labelling laws and the proprietary rights of the respective registered owners. Mere naming thereof is not to be taken to mean that trademarks are not protected by third-party rights! The copyright to published objects created by the Author is held solely by the Author of the pages. Duplication or use of such graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts in other electronic or print publications without the express consent of the Author is a violation of such copyrights.
4. Data protection
In instances where the contents of the website enable users to enter personal or business data (email addresses, names, postal addresses), such data is made available by the user on an expressly voluntary basis. Access to, and payment for, all services offered is - wherever this is technically feasible and reasonable - also permitted without the entry of such data, or through the entry of anonymized data or an alias. Third-party utilization of the contact data, or of comparable information, such as postal addresses, telephone or facsimile numbers and email addresses listed on the website masthead, for the purposes of sending unsolicited information is not permitted. We expressly reserve the right to take legal action against senders of so-called spam mails in the event of violations of this provision.
5. Legal validity of this disclaimer
These disclaimers are to be regarded as an integral part of the website referring users to this page. Should parts or individual formulations contained in this text fail to conform, or no longer conform, to the respective provisions of current law, the contents and validity of the remaining sections of the document shall remain unaffected by this.
