I curate here, and so I'm responsible.
But we all are only human and humans make mistakes. If you think that there is something wrong here, please contact me and give me a hint, so I can fix it before you simply mandate a lawyer.

Liability for content
The contents of my pages are created with great care. Yet I can not guarantee for the accuracy, completeness, and timeliness of the content. As a service provider I am responsible for my own content on these pages under the German general laws according to § 7 par. 1 TMG. According to §§ 8 to 10 of TMG, as aprovider I am not obligated to monitor transmitted or stored information, or to investigate circumstances that indicate illegal activity. Obligations to remove or block the use of information under the German general laws remain unaffected. However, a relevant liability is only possible from the date of knowledge of a specific infringement. Upon notification of such violations, I will remove the content as soon as possible.
Liability for links
My website contains links to external websites over which I have no control. Therefore I can not take any responsibility for their content. The provider or operator is always responsible for the content of linked pages. The linked sites were checked for possible legal violations at the time of linking. At the time of linking such illegal contents were not observable. A permanent control of the linked pages is infeasible without concrete evidence of a violation. Upon notification of violations, I will remove such links as soon as possible.
The content and works on these pages created by me are subject to German copyright. Copying, editing, distribution, and any kind of exploitation outside the limits of copyright require the written consent of the author or creator. Downloads and copies are permitted only for private, non-commercial use. Insofar as the content is not created by the website of mine, the property rights of third parties are being paid regard to. In particular contents of third parties are marked as such. Should you still be aware of copyright infringement, I ask for a hint. Upon notification of violations, I will remove such content as soon as possible.
The use of my website is usually possible without providing personal information. As far as personal data (eg name, address or email address) is collected on my site, this is on a voluntary basis as far as possible. These data will not be shared with third party without your expressed consent.
I would point out that data transmission over the Internet (for example, when communicating via email) can have security gaps. A complete protection of data against unauthorized access by third parties is impossible.
The use of contact data published under the German imprint obligation by third parties for sending unsolicited advertisements and information materials is hereby expressly prohibited. I reserve the right to take legal action in case of unsolicited promotional information, such as spam emails or spam phone calls.
Hint on cookies
When using the option to choose a preferred language (English, German or Dutch) - see in the menu on the right hand side at the top of the page - your choice will be stored in a cookie, which will be read on your next visit in order to restore your language setting.
Data protection regarding the use of social media buttons
For the social media buttons of this site I use Shariff by the German computer magazine c't - Magazin für Computertechnik which adheres to German data protection requirements.
c't writes as follows:
Shariff enables website users to share their favorite content without compromising their privacy.
Facebook, Google+ and Twitter supply official sharing code snippets which quietly siphon personal data from all page visitors. Shariff enables visitors to see how popular your page is on Facebook and share your content with others without needless data leaks.
Shariff is an open-source, low-maintenance, high-privacy solution maintained by German computer magazine c't and heise online.
