Legal notice

The links included in these webpages to the content of third-party Internet sites (“external content”) have been created by the Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF) to the best of its knowledge and with the greatest possible level of care, and simply serve to provide access to “external content”. Particular attention was hereby paid to the trustworthiness of third-party providers, as well as the legality of the “external content”.

However, in view of the fact that Internet site content is dynamic and can be subject to change at any time, the continuous individual assessment of all content to which the link was created is not possible in every instance. The Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF) has no influence over the “external content” of linked third-party websites, and cannot accept any liability for such content. Responsibility for the content of linked webpages shall fall exclusively to the respective provider or operator of the sites. The Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF) therefore explicitly avoids the appropriation of “external content”. The respective provider of the website shall be exclusively liable for any damage resulting from the use or non-use of the “external content” to which reference was made. In the event that any legal breaches are made known, such links shall be removed without delay.
