Legal particulars concerning links to external pages

This internet presence contains links to external pages. These external links are denoted as follows: by the symbol of an arrow () or explicit designation as an external link. The respective presenters of linked external pages are always responsible for their own contents. When presenting a link for the first time Max-Planck-Gesellschaft examines the external content to check whether it will incur possible action under civil or criminal law. Permanent checking of the contents of linked external pages without concrete evidence of legal contraventions is, however, unreasonable. If Max-Planck-Gesellschaft ascertains or is notified by others that an external service to which it is linked has incurred action under civil or criminal law, it will instantly sever the link to this service. Max-Planck-Gesellschaft expressly dissociates itself from such contents.
