The modern solution: If you can't fool 'em, sue 'em!"

Persons who access and/or use this website agree to the following:


This Website is copyrighted by Jörg Hau. All rights reserved.

The entire content of this Website is subject to copyright with all rights reserved. You may, of course, download or print individual pages and/or sections of this site, but you must not remove any copyright or other proprietary notices.

In particular, if not explicitly stated otherwise, any material made available at this site, must not be put on any other web page (or other media) without prior written consent of the author. This includes not only the original material but also any modified and/or translated version. Thus, if you desire to make any material from this site available elsewhere, then please provide a link that leads to the corresponding section on this website, but do not link directly to the material. This is especially the case for images or drawings.

All trademarks or similar items on this web site are the property of their respective owners and are used for identification purposes only. This applies, of course, even if they are not specifically marked as such, e.g. if the ™ or © symbol is eventually not shown. Their use does not imply any recommendation, invitation to buy a specific product, or similar - except if clearly expressed as such.

Privacy Policy

Your personal data are safe with us. We do not sell nor expose them.

We comply with the data protection policies of the Swiss Federal Constitution and all related provisions of federal data protection legislation. In cooperation with our hosting provider, we make every reasonable effort to protect your data against access from unauthorized parties and against loss, abuse or falsification.

When you visit our website, we automatically collect data such as your IP address, date, time, browser request and general information on the operating system and browser. We use these data for statistics so that we can improve the content of the website. Please note that, under the Federal Act on the Surveillance of Post and Telecommunications, there is a statutory duty to store data on all connections made in the past six months.

When you place an order with us, the information you provide - such as your name, address and e-mail - is stored together with the date and time of your contact. We use these data to do business with you (... you guessed that, no? ;-) and for internal statistics that allow us to improve our products and services. We do not create any "personality profiles" from your data and we do not collect or process any particularly sensitive personal data.

All personal data are treated as confidential and are neither passed on nor sold to third parties without your express consent. Excluded from this are, obviously, service partners that are needed for the completion of our contractual relationship, such as payment providers (e.g. banks and Paypal), postal services (for shipping of goods) and, eventually and upon justified request, authorities.

You can demand the deletion of your personal data at any time. However, your request for deletion will only cover future processing since commercial and tax law in Switzerland require us to keep records of receipts and other relevant communication for at least 10 years. We can therefore neither delete nor modify personal data contained in such records nor in their backup or archival copies. In addition, your personal data will continue to be processed until an eventually existing contract is completed and payment for all invoices is received.

Some pages contain tracking pixels of the German Verwertungsgesellschaft Wort (VG Wort). VG Wort is subject to German data protection laws and collects statistical usage data linked to my website with the intention of compensating authors for free copies of their work.

When you visit our website or get in contact with us, e.g. via e-mail or by placing an order, you consent to the processing of your data within this scope.


No commercial use without a written contract.

If not explicitly stated otherwise, downloading (or any other form of copying from this Website) will not transfer any license, title, ownership or other right to you. You may not reproduce - as a whole or in part -, transmit - by electronic means or otherwise -, modify, or use any part of this website for any commercial purpose without the prior written permission of the author. In the same context, any material made available at this site must not be put on any other web page, ftp server, CDROM collection or any other media without prior written consent of its author (but, of course, you may put a link to this site on your web page).

No Warranty

Use at your own risk. If something goes wrong, remember that it was YOU who decided to come here.

The information and opinions contained on this Website is provided without warranty of any kind, neither expressed nor implied. Although I make reasonable efforts that the information provided here is correct, I do not guarantee that it is accurate, reliable or complete. In no event, including negligence, will I be liable for damage or loss of any kind, arising out of or in connection with this website.

No Spam

Use of any data for commercial mailings is explicitly prohibited.

Although these pages contain some personal information about me (such as my e-mail address), this information is for information and personal contact only. The information given on these pages must not be used to generate any kind of profile, mailing list, adress collection or similar. In particular, it is not allowed to use these data in or for any kind of publicity without my prior written permission.

I cannot take any responsibility for anything that is outside of this site.

Almost all links included on this site have been chosen according to my personal experience. However, when you access these links, you may leave this site - that's the nature of the Internet - and you may eventually come across pages whose contents you do not like, which are considered illegal in some countries, contain copyrighted material, or similar issues. As these sources are not under my control, I cannot endorse or accept any responsibility for the content of these websites, nor for the products or services offered there. Use the Internet at your own risk!

Links that I put on my pages are mostly (but not all) identified with icons:
