Exclusion of liability for links
In the judgment of 12.5.1998 – 312 O 85/98 – “Haftung für Links” (“Liability for links”), the Regional Court of Hamburg ruled that a party attaching a link is, under certain circumstances, jointly liable for the content of the linked page, unless it has expressly distanced itself from this content. We hereby declare expressly and by way of precaution, for each external link which is placed on this website, that its presence cannot be equated with an approval on our part of the content of the relevant target page. The publishers of the linked pages bear sole liability for the content of those pages.
