The author explicitly hereby declares that at the time the link was set no illegal content was detectable on the pages being linked to. The author has no influence whatsoever on the current and future design, the content or copyright of the linked pages.

This statement applies to all of the links and references used within the website and to third-party entries in the guest-books, discussion forums and mailing lists set up by the author.
