2. References and Links
A liability obligation goes into effect where direct and indirect references are made to external Internet sites ("Links") that do not fall within the realm of responsibility of the author. In this case the author acknowledges the content of external websites and has the right to block their use whenever technically possible should the content be unlawful. The author explicitly declares that no illegal content could be identified on the linked websites at the time they were linked.

Therefore, the author explicitly dissociates himself from the content of all linked websites that have been changed after the link was created.

The author of the linked website is solely liable for illegal, erroneous, and incomplete content, and particular for damages caused through the use or non-use of the information contained in his publication and not the entity that has a link to the publication referred to.
