Responsible for the Content Pursuant to Sec. 18 par. 1 MStV
The European Commission provides a platform for on-line dispute resolution (ODR):
We are neither obliged nor prepared to take part in consumer-related procedures before a dispute resolution authority.
Liability for Content
As a service provider, pursuant to Sec. 7 par. 1 TMG, we are responsible for content we present ourselves on these pages according to the general laws. Pursuant to Sec. 8 through 10 TMG (German Telemedia Act), however, we are neither required to monitor transferred or stored third-party content nor to inquire as to causes indicating illegal activities.
Our obligation to delete or block the use of certain content pursuant to the general laws shall remain unaffected. We shall, however, be solely liable, if we have positive knowledge of an actual rights-infringement. As soon as we are made aware of such an infringement, we shall delete the content concerned.
Liability for Links
Our internet presence provides links to third-party websites over whose content we have no influence. Hence, we cannot accept any liability for this third-party content. The respective provider or operator of the websites we link to is/are solely responsible for the content of their sites. These sites have been examined for possible legal violations at the time of linking; at that time no such violations were apparent.
A continuous monitoring of the linked content without actual indication of an infringement is not reasonable. As soon as we are made aware of any infringement we shall delete the content concerned. The Max-Planck-Förderstiftung explicitly distances itself from any content infringing or violating law.
The content created and/or provided by the operator of this site is protected under German and European copyright laws. Any reproduction, editing, dissemination/distribution as well as any kind of exploitation outside the boundaries of copyright laws need the explicit, prior, and written consent of the respective copyright-holder. Downloads and printouts of this website (including all its subpages) are permitted for private use only and are prohibited for commercial use.
Any content not compiled by the operator of this website, is used while observing the respective copyrights. Third-party content, in particular, is identified as such. Should you, however, become aware of any copyright infringement, we would kindly ask you to advise us of it. We will then immediately attend to the matter by deleting the respective illicit content.
Objection Against Advertisement E-Mails
It is explicitly forbidden to use the contact-information given above for advertisement or marketing purposes or for any communication we did not expressly solicit. We reserve the right to take legal action against any person or entity acting contrary to this provision.
