Links

The University of Bonn may only have liability for the content of third-party websites for which the University of Bonn is not responsible and to which direct or indirect links are provided if the University is aware of the content in question and it is both technically possible and reasonable to prevent the usage of illegal content.

The provider of the web page to which a link was provided has sole liability for illegal, incorrect or incomplete content and–in particular–for any damages resulting from the usage or non-usage of such provided information, not the party which merely provides a link to the respective publication.
