This site is intended to provide information about the TFO project.
The publisher as well as the authors assume no responsibility for the up-to-dateness, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims against the publisher, which refer to material or non-material nature, caused by use or disuse of the information presented or by the use of incorrect and incomplete information are excluded unless there is demonstrable intentional or grossly negligent behavior on part of the author. All offers are non-binding and without obligation. The publisher reserves the right to change, supplement, or delete parts of or the entire offer without separate announcement and or to temporarily or permanently terminate the publication.
References and Links
The publisher is not liable for direct or indirect references to external Internet pages, which reside outside the responsibility of the publisher. A liability obligation would only become effective in the case that the publisher has notice of the contents and it is technically possible and reasonable to prevent the use in case of illegal contents. Therefore, the publisher explicitly declares that when placing the link the corresponding linked pages contained no illegal content. The author has absolutely no influence on the current and future design and contents of the linked / connected pages. Therefore the publisher dissociates himself hereby explicitly from all contents of all linked / connected pages which were modified after the link placement. This applies to all link set within the own Internet offer and references as well as for external entries in guest books, discussion forums, linked archives and mailing lists provided by the publisher. For illegal, incorrect or incomplete content and especially for damages resulting from the use or disuse of such information the provider of the page to which reference was made is solely liable, not the person who has linked to these pages.
The publisher strives to respect the copyright of the graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts used in all publications. In addition, the publisher endeavours to use self-provided graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts or to resort to license-free graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts. All trademarks and product names mentioned within the Internet offer, which may be protected by third parties, are subject to the provisions of applicable trademark law and the ownership rights of the respective registered owners. Solely based on citing trademarks it shall not be concluded that trademarks are not protected by third party rights. The copyright for any material created by the publisher remain solely with the publisher. Any duplication or use of such graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without written permission.
Legal validity of this disclaimer of liability
This disclaimer of liability is to be regarded as part of the internet offer which you were referred from. If sections or individual terms of this statement do not, no longer or do not completely conform to the valid legal status, the content and validity of the remainder of this document remains unaffected.
