2. References and links

If direct or indirect references to third party websites ("Hyperlinks") are made, which are outside the author’s sphere of responsibility, the author shall only be held liable if he has had detailed knowledge of the contents and if it would have been technically possible and reasonable to prevent the use in case of unlawful contents.
