Keine Abmahnung ohne vorherigen Kontakt
: Sollte der Inhalt oder die Aufmachung dieser Seiten fremde Rechte Dritter oder gesetzliche Bestimmungen verletzen, so bitten wir um eine entsprechende Nachricht ohne Kostennote. Die Beseitigung einer möglicherweise von diesen Seiten ausgehenden Schutzrecht-Verletzung durch Schutzrecht-InhaberInnen selbst darf nicht ohne unsere Zustimmung stattfinden. Wir garantieren, dass die zu Recht beanstandeten Passagen unverzüglich entfernt werden, ohne dass von Ihrer Seite die Einschaltung eines Rechtsbeistandes erforderlich ist. Dennoch von Ihnen ohne vorherige Kontaktaufnahme ausgelöste Kosten werden wir vollumfänglich zurückweisen und gegebenenfalls Gegenklage wegen Verletzung vorgenannter Bestimmungen einreichen. EurekaMag.com ist bestrebt, in allen Publikationen die Urheberrechte der verwendeten Dateien, Grafiken, Tondokumente, Videosequenzen und Texte zu beachten, von ihm selbst erstellte Grafiken, Tondokumente, Videosequenzen und Texte zu nutzen oder auf lizenzfreie Dateien, Grafiken, Tondokumente, Videosequenzen und Texte zurückzugreifen. Alle innerhalb des Internetangebotes genannten und ggf. durch Dritte geschützten Marken- und Warenzeichen unterliegen uneingeschränkt den Bestimmungen des jeweils gültigen Kennzeichenrechts und den Besitzrechten der jeweiligen eingetragenen Eigentümer. Allein aufgrund der bloßen Nennung ist nicht der Schluss zu ziehen, dass Markenzeichen nicht durch Rechte Dritter geschützt sind! Das Copyright für veröffentlichte, von EurekaMag.com selbst erstellte Objekte bleibt allein bei EurekaMag.com. Eine Vervielfältigung oder Verwendung solcher Dateien, Grafiken, Tondokumente, Videosequenzen und Texte in anderen elektronischen oder gedruckten Publikationen ist ohne ausdrückliche Zustimmung von EurekaMag.com nicht gestattet.
Verweise und Links
: Bei direkten oder indirekten Verweisen auf fremde Webseiten ("Hyperlinks"), die außerhalb des Verantwortungsbereiches von EurekaMag.com liegen, würde eine Haftungsverpflichtung ausschließlich in dem Fall in Kraft treten, in dem EurekaMag.com von den Inhalten Kenntnis hat und es ihm technisch möglich und zumutbar wäre, die Nutzung im Falle rechtswidriger Inhalte zu verhindern. EurekaMag.com erklärt hiermit ausdrücklich, dass zum Zeitpunkt der Linksetzung keine illegalen Inhalte auf den zu verlinkenden Seiten erkennbar waren. Auf die aktuelle und zukünftige Gestaltung, die Inhalte oder die Urheberschaft der gelinkten/verknüpften Seiten hat EurekaMag.com keinerlei Einfluss. Deshalb distanziert er sich hiermit ausdrücklich von allen Inhalten aller gelinkten/verknüpften Seiten, die nach der Linksetzung verändert wurden. Diese Feststellung gilt für alle innerhalb des eigenen Internetangebotes gesetzten Links und Verweise sowie für Fremdeinträge in von EurekaMag.com eingerichteten Webseiten, Gästebüchern, Diskussionsforen und Mailinglisten. Für illegale, fehlerhafte oder unvollständige Inhalte und insbesondere für Schäden, die aus der Nutzung oder Nichtnutzung solcherart dargebotener Informationen entstehen, haftet allein der Anbieter der Seite, auf welche verwiesen wurde, nicht derjenige, der über Links auf die jeweilige Veröffentlichung lediglich verweist.

Alle Objekte dieser Seite sind privater Eigentum und somit nicht zum lesen bestimmt. Es ist also verboten diese Seite zu betreten. Wenn Sie diese Seite dennoch betreten, verstoßen Sie gegen den "Code 431.322.12 of The Internet Privacy Act", der 1995 von Bill Clinton verabschiedet wurde. Das heißt, Sie können gegen die Personen, welche diese Dateien verwalten, nicht vorgehen. Wenn Sie dieser Vereinbarung nicht zustimmen, sind Sie gezwungen diese Seiten wieder zu verlassen.
: Mit Urteil vom 12. Mai 1998 hat das Landgericht Hamburg entschieden, dass man durch die Ausbringung eines Links die Inhalte der gelinkten Seite ggf. mit zu verantworten hat. Dies kann - so das Landgericht - nur dadurch verhindert werden, dass man sich ausdrücklich von diesen Inhalten distanziert. EurekaMag.com hat Links zu anderen Seiten im Internet gelegt. Für all diese Links gilt: EurekaMag.com betont ausdrücklich, dass es keinerlei Einfluss auf die Gestaltung und die Inhalte der gelinkten Seiten hat. Deshalb distanziere sich EurekaMag.com hiermit ausdrücklich von allen Inhalten aller gelinkten Seiten. Diese Erklärung gilt für alle ausgebrachten Links und für alle Inhalte der Seiten, zu denen die Hyperlinks führen.
