3. Links and references
In the case of direct or indirect references to external websites (“hyperlinks”) which remain outside the area of responsibility of the University, a liability claim would come into effect only in the case where the author had knowledge of the contents and if he/she had the technical possibility and if it could be reasonably assumed that he/she would prevent the use of said websites in case of illegal contents. By the present, the university declares circumstantially that no illegal contents were recognisable on the pages to be linked at the time of the insertion of the link. The university has no influence whatsoever on the future design, the contents or the copyrights of the linked/connected pages. Therefore, the university distances itself from all contents of linked/connected pages which have been modified after the insertion of the link. This consideration applies to all links and references placed in the own internet offer as well as all external entries in the guest books, discussion forums, link indices, mailing lists and all other forms of databases to which an external written access is possible. Only the person responsible for the page to which a reference was made, and not the person merely referring to the publication in question by the use of a link, is liable for illegal, false or incomplete contents and particularly for prejudice originated by the use or disuse of this type of supplied information.
