The contents of the University’s websites are researched and prepared accurately.
However, the University cannot warrant that no errors occur while processing the contents.

The University does not make any warranty that information provided is up-to-date, accurate or complete. Liability claims regarding any damage (material or immaterial) caused by the use of any information provided, including any kind of incomplete or inaccurate information, will therefore be rejected if the University cannot be proven to cause them by intentionally deceitful means or by gross negligence.

References and links

As a provider, the University is only liable for its own contents.

These do not include links to the contents provided by other providers. These external contents do not originate from the University. Therefore, the University cannot influence the contents of the external websites.

In case of direct and indirect references to external web pages (‘links’) which are not part of the University’s responsibility, the University is liable for if the University is informed about the content, and it is technically possible and reasonably to expect to prevent the use of illegal contents.

The University therefore confirms that the web pages being linked to the University’s website had not contained illegal contents when the links were created. The University has no effect on the current and future design and on the contents which are part of the web pages being linked to the University’s website. Thus the University distances itself from all web pages being linked to the University’s website which may have contained illegal contents after the links to those web pages had been created.

This notice applies to all links and references created within its own web contents and to external contributions, to the guest books, forums, and mailing lists created by the University. In case of illegal, inaccurate or incomplete contents and, in particular, in case of damage caused by using those types of information, it is only the web provider of the web pages being linked to the website who is liable for the damages and not the one referring to the respective web page.
