The district court of Hamburg ruled that, when a link is included, co-responsibility may exist for the contents of the linked pages. According to the court’s ruling, this can only be avoided by expressly dissociating oneself from these contents. For this reason, we have drafted the following liability rules.

The university library Braunschweig, hereafter UBBS, declares the following:

  • Liability for content:

UBBS does not guarantee the topicality, correctness, completeness or quality of the information it provides. Liability claims relating to material or non-material damage caused by the use or non-use of the information provided or by the use of incorrect or incomplete information are excluded, unless the employees of UBBS can be proven to have acted intentionally or with gross negligence, unless there is a culpable breach of essential contractual obligations or cardinal obligations. In this case the liability of UBBS is limited to typical damages foreseeable at the time of the establishment of the user relationship. The amount of liability is limited to 500 euros, except in the case of damage caused intentionally.

As a service provider, we are not obligated to monitor transmitted or stored third-party information or to investigate circumstances that indicate illegal activity. Obligations to remove or block the use of information according to general laws remain unaffected. However, liability in this regard is only possible from the point in time at which a concrete infringement of the law becomes known. If we become aware of any such infringements, we will remove the relevant content immediately.

All offers are non-binding. Parts of the pages or the complete publication including all offers and information might be extended, changed or partly or completely deleted by the UBBS without notice.

  • Liability for links:

In the case of direct or indirect references ("links") to external Internet pages that lie outside the area of responsibility of UBBS, liability would only apply if the author had knowledge of the content and it was technically possible and reasonable for him to prevent the use of illegal content.

UBBS hereby expressly declares that at the time of linking, no illegal content was apparent on the linked pages. UBBS has no influence on the current and future design, content and/or authorship of the linked pages. Therefore, UBBS hereby expressly distances itself from all linked pages that were changed after the link was created. This applies to all links set within the own internet offer as well as to external entries in guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists set up by the author, for example. For illegal, incorrect or incomplete contents and especially for damages resulting from the use of such information, only the provider of the page to which reference was made is liable and not the one who merely refers to the respective publication via links.

  • Copyright:

UBBS endeavors to observe the copyrights of the graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts used in all publications. Insofar as the content on these pages was not created by the UBBS, the copyrights of third parties are respected. In particular, third-party content is identified as such.

All brand names and trademarks mentioned on the website and possibly protected by third parties are subject without restriction to the provisions of the applicable trademark law and the ownership rights of the respective registered owners. The mere mention of a trademark does not imply that it is not protected by the rights of third parties.

The copyright for any material created by members of the TU Braunschweig is reserved. Any duplication or use of objects such as diagrams, sounds or texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without the author's agreement. Press releases are not affected by this regulation.

  • Data Protection:

If the opportunity for the input of personal or business data (email addresses, name, addresses) is given, the input of these data takes place voluntarily. The use of all offered services is permitted - if and so far technically possible and reasonable - without specification of any personal data or under specification of anonymized data or an alias.
