Liability for content
The content of our website has been compiled with meticulous care and to the best of our knowledge. However, we cannot assume any liability for the up-to-datedness, completeness or accuracy of any of the pages. With the sentence of the 12th of September 1999 – 312 O 85/99 ‘Liability for external Links’ the regional court of Hamburg decided that by providing external links the owner of the website is responsible fort he content on the linked websites. This sentence can only be bypassed by explicitly distancing yourself from the content oft he linked websites. Since we provided links that among other represent Buddhist teachings, of course we do not want to distance ourselves from the content of Buddhist teaching. However, we can not regularly control what kind of content these websites provide and whether they might infringe the law. That is why due to legal reasons we have to include the following paragraph:
We hereby distance ourselves explicitly from all content of linked websites, files or graphics and do not take any ownership of it. Any infringement of the law result in an instant removal of the links, entries, graphics are similar references. For the content and information of linked websites or inter addresses are solely the URL owner, operators or vendors responsible.

2. References and Links in case of direct or indirect references and links to external websites that lie outside the scope of responsibility of Michael HoKai Österle, a liability obligation would solely in those cases, in which Michael HoKai Österle had prior knowledge of the content and it would have been technically possible and feasible to prevent their use in case of illegal content.
Michael HoKai Österle herby expressly declares that at the time of linking, no illegal contents were recognisable on the pages that were to be linked. Michael HoKai Österle has no influence on the current and future organisation, content or authorship of the linked/tied up websites.

For illegal incorrect or incomplete content and in particular for the damages which originate from the use or disuse of the provided information, is solely responsibility of the provider of the page to which any of these links refer to and not the party that simply refers to the according publication through links.
