Dispute settlement

The European Commission provides a platform for online dispute resolution:
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 § 7 par. 1 TMG, we are responsible for our own content on these pages in accordance with general laws. Pursuant to §§ 8 through 10 TMG, however, we as a service provider are not obliged to monitor transmitted or stored third-party content or to investigate circumstances that indicate illegal activity.
Obligations to remove or block the use of information in accordance with general laws remain unaffected by this. However, liability in this respect is only possible from the time of knowledge of a concrete infringement. If we become aware of corresponding infringements, we will remove this content immediately.

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.
However, permanent monitoring of the contents of the linked pages is not reasonable without concrete indications of a violation of the law. As soon as we become aware of any infringements of the law, we will remove such links immediately. The Max-Planck-Foundation explicitly distances itself from such content.


The content created and/or provided by the operator of this site is protected under German 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 bring it to our attention. If we become aware of any infringements of the law, we will remove such content immediately.

Objection Against Advertisement E-Mails

The use of contact data published within the framework of the legal notice for the transmission of advertising and information material not expressly requested is hereby prohibited. The operators of these pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising information, for example by spam e-mails.
