Foreign language pages

Insofar as parts of the Internet presence are also offered in languages other than German, this is exclusively a service for employees and guests of the Max Planck Society who do not speak German.


Legal information on liability for own contents

As content provider according to § 7 (1) of the German Telemedia Act, the Max Planck Society is responsible for its own content which it makes available for use in accordance with general law. The Max Planck Society makes every effort to ensure that the information provided on this website is accurate and up-to-date. Nevertheless, errors and ambiguities cannot be completely excluded. Therefore, the Max Planck Society does not guarantee the accuracy, completeness or quality of the information provided, or that it is up-to-date. The Max Planck Society is not liable for any material or immaterial damage caused directly or indirectly by the use or non-use of the information provided or by the use of incorrect or incomplete information, unless it can be proven that the Max Planck Society acted with intent or gross negligence. The same applies to software available for free download. Parts of the pages or the complete publication including all offers and information might be extended, changed or partly or completely deleted by the Max Planck Society without separate announcement.

Legal information on links to external sites

On this website there are links to external sites. The respective provider is always responsible for the content of the linked external sites. The Max Planck Society has checked the external content when the link was first established to ascertain whether it might give rise to any civil or criminal liability. However, it is not reasonable to expect the Max Planck Society to continuously monitor the content of linked external sites without concrete evidence of a violation of the law. If the Max Planck Society discovers or is informed by others that an external site to which it has provided a link triggers civil or criminal liability, it will immediately remove the link to this site. The Max Planck Society expressly distances itself from such contents.
