Notice of liability / Disclaimer:

As a content provider, Goethe University is responsible for its “own content” that it makes available for use in accordance with general laws. This impressum applies to the central information offerings of the central administration and the central institutions of the Goethe University on the WWW, which are identified by the note “© Goethe University” and can be accessed via the URL

Goethe University does not guarantee their completeness or suitability for specific purposes. The use of the content made available on the Internet pages is at the sole risk of the user.

Note on the problem of external links

This “own content” is to be distinguished from cross-references (“links”) to the content provided by other institutions of the university as well as other providers. Links” are always “living” (dynamic) references. When the links were first set up, the Goethe University’s web editors checked the external content to see whether it might give rise to any civil or criminal liability. However, the university does not constantly check the content referred to in the central information offering of the Goethe University’s central administration on the WWW for changes that could give rise to a new responsibility or liability . If it discovers or is informed by others that a specific offer to which it has provided a link gives rise to civil or criminal liability, it will remove the reference to this offer.

Despite careful control of the content, no liability or responsibility is assumed for the content of external links. The operators of linked sites are solely responsible for their content. The regional court Hamburg has decided with its judgement of 12.05.1998 “liability for links” (312 O 85/98) that one can be held liable for the content of the “linked” side by the mounting of a link. This can be prevented by emphatically distancing oneself from this content. Against this background, the Goethe University hereby, as a precautionary measure, distances itself and expressly from all content of all linked pages on its Internet pages. It has neither influence on the design and content of the linked pages, nor has it adopted these content as its own. This declaration applies to all links and link collections that currently exist or will exist in the future.
