References and links
In the case of direct or indirect references to other websites (hyperlinks), it would only be possible to hold author liable if the author had knowledge of the content and it would be technically possible and reasonable to prevent the use of any illegal content.
The author therefore expressly declares that no illegal content was recognized on any linked web pages at the time of creating the link. The author has no control over the current and future design, content and authorship of any linked web pages. He therefore expressly disassociates himself with the any content on linked web pages created after the creation of the link. This statement applies to all links within our own internet service as well as to entries made by external users in guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists set up by the author and in all other fields in databases where external write accesses are possible. It is the provider of the page linked to, and not the one who links to the respective web page, who is liable for any illegal, incorrect or incomplete contents, and in particular for any damages caused by the use or failure to use the information presented there.
